Nah thats a Henchman Icon, he can be a henchmen in BatB, League and CoO.

Free Agent Icon looks like Deathstroke's mask

He's a henchman. No Slade mask there.

He also works for the Court of Owls and has an alternate Owl mask head option.

Kind of annoyed to have to buy Goliath. I mean, I get that they're learning resin and its much easier to pull off dynamic sculpts with bigger models in the stuff, but he's not what I want that pack for.

Damian himself seems cool, but its kind of annoying he's not designed to be cheap enough to make it easier to work in the more expensive Batmans in Bat Family. The bundle they're selling is even 27 points over. Still excited. Damian is the first Robin I've really liked beyond the original.

Most importantly, the inclusion of this Penguin means that KM have the right to the Tim Burton/Warner movies.

So, maybe there with be a Nickelson Joker, a Keaton Batman, a new Alfred, and Bat-Nipples!

I'm not so sure. While that's clearly what they're going for, the Duck car and penguin troops have made appearances elsewhere without being branded Batman Returns. The only thing they'd probably need the rights for is Devito's Penguin, and that doesn't appear to be what we got here.

No sign that they're DC Universe though.

I would have thought Goliath would be perfect for it.

Rumor is they're going to be relaunching the DCU game soon and aren't working on new model rules for the current edition. Feels in line with the sudden sense of putting out a well managed game system we've seen in the last couple months overall.

I have had it confirmed from 2 separate sources that DCU is getting a new edition, including one of the original designers who they've asked back. Sigh.

Really like those new sets. Can you only pick them up from their website, i don't think i ever saw any of the other group buys anywhere else prior?

The Court guys are interesting.

The Bat-Boxes only hit retail stores about 2 weeks ago, the first wave only came last month. I'd say you can expect more to come later, but they'll all be available in stores

This stuff is the November releases. They won't be in stores until the end of the month which realistically means the start of the next.

Given the deluge of resin recasts they're relaunching, I'm not surprised there's some distribution snags. FWIW, Miniature Market just got the Bat Boxes in.

The new version of Damian is a henchmen, time for a Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin Team?


You can do Team Robin currently at ~350:
Nightwing (any) & Carrie Kelly as Sidekicks, with Tim Drake, Damian Wayne (50 pts) & Red Hood AK as free agents.

The only concern now is if you are limited to only newer models, since Damian goes up 10, Nightwing is his most expensive, and the complete lack of any Tim Drake/Red Robin to complete the set.
Kellys not a big loss, at least they never made a Carrie Kelly Catwoman...

I didnt realize I could have that many Free Agents, and dont you need a leader in the crew? Restricting you to Nightwing (AK)?

Sorry, confusion in wording. You don't need a Leader, you need a Boss and Sidekicks can be your Boss (and obviously, so can Leaders). The difference is, Leaders have an aura for free Let's Go!, have the Inspire trait and can reroll failed Willpower rolls. So when Nightwing is your Boss instead of Batman, he gains those abilities. A normal Sidekick acting as Boss doesn't have them. I should have said "any sidekick can be boss".

You arent limited to running Crews, you can run teams of multiple Heroes or Villains. Provides a way to use The Dark Knights, or really which ever villains you want teamed up. Themed Batfamily/Arrowverse/Villain Society builds.

There must be some rules I'm missing somewhere because I'm not seeing where it states that we can team up characters that aren't on those themed lists.

None of the Dark Knights are part of those lists and none of them have any team keywords that would allow them to be played together.

Is there another official document that has more teams?

My bad I miss read and was told something different as well. Hopefully they work it so you can do more. So I guess its just them posting the changes to FB rather than completely new.

As a sidenote, don't buy that bundle, it's more expensive than buying them individually.

It looks like it's free shipping for £50 orders pre-discount.

And orders of £75 or so get Hawaiian Shirt Joker for free.

Hawaiian Shirt Joker has gone now, I believe. I still had him in my basket from last month but he vanished when checking out, tried to make a new order on my PC as well since but he isn’t automatically adding to cart like he used to. (There may have been a very short crossover when he was still available at same time as Black Friday deals but appears to have been removed quite quickly)

edit: Just seem he seems to be back again since I tried earlier today

Just want to point out that this isn't quite true, it isn't everything. Red Hood Joker, Alfred, Black Flash and Arkham Knight Sniper aren't available, it's only everything since Gencon last year.

Great value in the sale though, some of the other bundles are good collections. All the limited models are very good sculpts and rules, and its great to see a few more things being taken off the Eternal list (which I assume is happening because Batmatch isn't available atm).

They've been putting out excellent stuff lately and Standard really feels like a game with a lot more thought put into it than ever before. I've been really enjoying the game since the change.

Talia's stuff is really cool but I kind of hate the Heretic on principle. Rapidly aged evil clones are the worst narrative trope out there.

I agree with you on Heretic, but for the rest of the models in the set, particularly Talia and Cheshire I can forgive it.

This set is getting me one more person to play against as I try to talk more people into the game.

They throw up the riddle things on their Facebook page, but that's not really a long term thing. I get the impression that their production capabilities are pretty limited and what they release is kind of bound to the demands on their production line.

Ever since doing resin their prices have went down yet their quality went up. I commend them, when a certain other company went to fine crap, all their prices did was go up and their quality went down exponentially.

Their new models and box boxes are excellent.

Militia is out in Resin, and the superior Arkham Knight model (previously campaign book preorder limited model) is in the box.

We probably need the full vehicle rules before that, the ones we originally got are incompatible with 2nd edition. There's also a new Batmobile teased in the compendium that we never got, so plenty to do vehicle wise

And they're still getting her name wrong...

Kathy Kane = The original Batwoman who wore yellow and was in love with Bruce. She was written out of continuity years ago and was briefly brought back to meet the current Batwoman in a story written by Grant Morrison.

Kate Kane = The current Batwoman who wears black and red. She's Bruce Wayne's cousin who debuted in '52' and has romantic relationships with Renee Montoya and Maggie Sawyer. She was also kicked out of the military because of 'Don't Ask Don't Tell.' And recently guest starred in the Arrowverse shows with a pilot for her own TV show recently being filmed.

Kate has been called Kathy on occasion in the comics. Though you are right, she's typically just Kate.

Today's announcement, a new starter, using The Dark Knight Rises as its base. While Im not the biggest fan of the film the set looks interesting.

"A comprehensive starter set, this box is packed full of models and accessories – everything you need to start playing the Batman Miniature Game. Based on the events in the Dark Knight Rises movie, this boxed set contains two complete crews (Batman, Catwoman and the GCPD vs Bane and his mercenaries), including a Batpod and – for the first time – the Tumbler Batmobile! You’ll also find full-colour, slot-together card scenery, markers and counters, cards, and a set of quickstart rules. This is the ultimate boxed set for BMG."

Has anyone else had problems with the quality of Knight Models resin models?

I picked up a Joker Bat-Box on sale a while ago and I'm finally getting around to assembling it, and I don't think I've ever been more disappointed. Not only is it missing pieces, but the resin is really brittle (feels like the figures are cast in charcoal). Tons of flash, nothing fits together, messed up features (including one guy who had his face cast from two unaligned molds and another with half his face damaged beyond repair - completely unfixable). I'm ready to chuck the whole lot in the trash.

Did I get a bad batch, or is the quality always this bad?

Have you contacted them? Last time I had an issue i contacted them, sent a picture and got a replacement. Took a couple weeks, but I was allowed Toledo the messed up stuff for conversions.

I find their resin okay to good, not fantastic. Detail is good, but there's bubbles and they haven't figured out they need to make some of the parts metal on smaller models (which is why Special Volume has been a popular rule lately...). It helps that the resin is pretty hard, but it does demand a little sharper knife than most I've worked with to clear mold lines. Injection points are pretty numerous but mostly okay. A few "detail or flash?" moments, but the final models turn out quite good overall.

Some of your concerns are definitely unique though. I'm not 100% sure of the usual quality of the Joker box, as its overall pretty old at this point (half the contents are their first gen resins from the launch of 2nd) but Knight has been much better about responding to replacement requests in the last few months.

KM Customer service has improved considerably, as the QC. As long as you have the order number, they're pretty decent.

Some more info on new set:
£115 RRP.
The new fast-play quick start rules with with boxed traits on cards.
The buildings are reskins of the squad ones.
The tumbler and batpod are equipped like the Penguin's Duck or Lobo's Hawg.
I'll try to answer any other questions, I'm getting the first UK review copy in Monday in theory, though 3 of the playtesters will have copies at Salute this weekend.

I've visually checked all the resins I've bought (all Ltd Ed releases), and whilst it's not as thorough as actually cleaning and assembling, I noticed no significant casting issues.

Time will tell when I get into them and/or buy some of the normal game pieces though.

I have had quite a few miscasts but I have brought a lot of models. Some have been replaced, other requests have been ignored by customer service.

I am still waiting on a reply to my ticket (and several chasers) since last September when one of my packs was missing a model. It was the last straw for me and on principle I am not picking up any new models until they fix the issue which saved me a load of money during the Black Friday sale.

Just getting back into some BMG (admittedly, with the minis from Gotham City Chronicles... ) and thus catching up to 2nd edition, I've noticed a few rules that seem to have either been omitted from or come along later than the Compendium document. Special Volume I can find no mention of, and the new Penguin's Dealer trait also seems absent. Is there an up-to-date repository of such things, or are they just covered with the minis they come with?

Must admit I'm awful tempted by the new Ledger Joker, it has all the same menace and style of the old one but without the oversized head...

Special Volume is typically listed on the new cards (for newer models), which are often two sided and include the units special rules. IE Talia in the new set on the reverse of her card has "Special Volume S: This model uses a base of 40mm but has the same height and rules as a model on a 30mm base. Also this model gains +1 to its basic movement distance." I would assume that Penguin's Dealer Trait is on his card or in the box.

Ah, ok, cheers for the info. The downloads for the cards don't seem to have that section, just the front, so I guess I'll just have to work around those particular rules. I'm only playing casual narrative games, so it shouldn't be too big of an issue.

Actually, it looks like the individual model pages do have the backs, just not the Batbox ones.

It’s something they’re working on improving. They’ve moved to rules on the back of cards in place of the compendium which is a huge boost to playability. It requires putting card backs up on the site though which they’re just starting to do consistently on newer releases.


Knight Models Latest: Latest releases pg 52 1/18 @ 2019/04/18 21:24:59


Post by: Paradigm


That's fair enough. It does seem that 2e and the changes they've made to the range and rules since I dropped out of the game a few years ago are far better in terms of accessibly and easy of use, so while the compendium is handy, I can see how putting it all on the cards is a good call.

Has anyone else had problems with the quality of Knight Models resin models?

I picked up a Joker Bat-Box on sale a while ago and I'm finally getting around to assembling it, and I don't think I've ever been more disappointed. Not only is it missing pieces, but the resin is really brittle (feels like the figures are cast in charcoal). Tons of flash, nothing fits together, messed up features (including one guy who had his face cast from two unaligned molds and another with half his face damaged beyond repair - completely unfixable). I'm ready to chuck the whole lot in the trash.

Did I get a bad batch, or is the quality always this bad?


Their resin and QC is pretty bad. I love the game and the metal models.
I had a few orders and always a bad cast or missing piece. The resin is very brittle.
Took two months to get an order with two additional shipments from them to try and fix.

I want to get a few more sets, but not wanting to roll the dice currently.

Was hoping the starter set was closer to $99. $150 will be harder to get new players in. For $100 I would have got it for the batman side and give the bane crew to a friend to get him started.

I know there have been issues with previous retailers and preorders where Knight didn’t make enough for everyone so was shipping to individual retailers at a time. So people had their orders in at shop A, but shop A didn’t get the new stuff right away while shop B did, so they canceled their orders at A and got their stuff from B. Then A finally gets their order in but now everyone already has it so they don’t sell much of it.

A lot of smaller (also larger) companies are struggling with distributors lately and pushing direct sales more. Resin seems to cater to more of an on demand production as well.

Someone will drop pictures later, I'm sure, but new Gang called "Cults" and the first models for it are Kobra, which look amazing. I wonder what other groups would go in with Cults tho? Brother Blood seems like a shoe-in for sure but beyond that?

As mentioned above there is a new faction on its way, the Kobra Terrorist Organization and Cult. Though unlike the above im not seeing anywhere that its falling under a broad blanket of "Cults" though anything is possible, after all we are getting the Kobras.

New cult rules:

Sort of a Team situation in which you can alter the troop selection a bit. Also Faith points, which allows for models to act as bodyguards for the Leader.

Any ideas on other potential cults from DC/Batman?

Kobra are a really great release with some fun mechanics, I love how they've turned out in the rules. Good self-contained crew with some stuff for the future in Cults, and they don't really have any strictly bad choices either. Definitely considering picking them up, but I already have 2 crews with no paint on them (Grodd and Bane, and I own the whole crews)

Church of blood (Brother/Mother Blood) are separate to the Cult of Trigon. Kobra Cult are great, but I'm worried about yet more rules in the crunchiest game in the world as it is. Cicada Cult is out there in the DCU, which would be interesting and CW-y, Religion of Crime, could maybe see them doing the Srigydae as a way of expanding the Court of Owls also.

I’ve seen people have a number of issues with the resin. Models are usually pock marked to varying degree, and stuff like ankles and Constantine’s smoke are very brittle. Also their sculpts are very two dimensional due to them being one piece models.


Knight Models Latest: Latest releases pg 52 1/18 @ 2019/07/25 07:43:17


Post by: Aeneades


Not all the new models are one piece, quite a few are multipart.

I have had some issue with the new models but I was buying almost every new release. The main issue I saw was an incomplete model where a piece of resin must have broken off in the mould previously and not been removed. Knight have improved customer service quite a lot in the last year and if it goes on too long you can usually hurry things up via Facebook messenger.

I've only had issues with some of their initial resin releases. But for the most part the models are fine. The sculpts, even the monopiece ones are pretty ok and even the most boring look better when you have paint on them.

The Cult is very fun, I picked up the box when they first came out and they play nicely.

As for Doom Patrol I was just telling a friend I would like to see them get models.

The resins are good, but take some practice to clean properly. They put a little gate under the chins to make sure the face casts correctly that's easy to miss prior to painting. The models feel frail, but on the whole they're quite nice. I've been pretty thrilled with the Teen Titans box. Also, the Batman game itself is a lot better these days; creeping up my favorites list. Hoping DCU turns out well. The original had a lot of potential but just needed some polish.

Currently, or at least most recently, the Wildcats are existing in a side AU to the main canon. They’ve got some of the same names, attached to alternate versions of the characters. Aqua man was a genetic experiment half fish person who was a serial killer. Flash took drugs to run faster and was a serial killer. Hell, most of the DC heroes were messed up serial killers of some form or another.

They've been teasing some new stuff on their facebook the last few days. From what I've caught it's a Jason Todd Robin model and a LexCorp BattleBox for DCUMG.

Plus the DCUMG repacks of Bat Villains, Crime Syndicate, Justice League, and Justice League Dark that they released last month, since it's been a while for this thread.





That lexbox looks like it includes Metallo which would be a new character for DCUMG

He isn't a proper model in game. Like the quantum donkey for the Doom Patrol, he's their objective and probably messes around with the table rather than the opponent

Knight has done more diorama like models since switching to resin. It gives them larger chunks of material to work with and makes for some unique poses and great recreations of comic art, but also puts a lot of random chairs on the battlefield.

Prequel comics? I didn't know about those. Well, I wouldn't have read them anyway; after my miserable experience with the Rising Stars spin-offs I'm pretty sour on prequels and spin-offs to "one and done" stories like Watchmen.

Well, the pose makes much more sense now. Looks like a nice model for display at least.

I recently got the DC Universe Miniatures Game hardback and I figured I'd highlight some of the changes compared to older versions of the rules. - Some of these were implemented in more recent rules updates and faqs of the PDF versions, apparently, but I don't print out a new rulebook each time I play, so, *shrug*.


* Person with initiative can make the other person go first.

* When a model activates, it must use a non-zero amount of power counters. (so you can't keep it all for defensive things)

* The game will end early if everyone on a team is KO/dead. The standing player gets bonus vp

* You can only use 1 reactive or passive power against an attack.

* Effects are now capped to a certain value over a round. - This includes Stun power counter loss. (NB: I'm sorta confused by this one, but that's what it says, Stun was even the example.)

* Minimum range isn't a thing anymore.

* Knocked down and KO is now a smaller penalty

* Recovering from KO is a lesser penalty than before.

* Thrown items, must try to allocate at least 1 damage to everything in a line of throw.

I've been out of the comics scene for a while now, I didn't realise Eradicator was still around; for some reason I thought he was killed in the whole "return of Superman" storyline? Although when has that ever mattered in a comic book...

Wasn't expecting this many models to be released for this wave. Will probably grab Watchmen and if they come with BMG cards, the Lexcorp group.

While Im not entirely opposed to a 3rd Edition, it would be very soon after the release of 2nd and I can't come up with any big issues with the game requiring a new edition.

Hopefully it something different, like perhaps a Campaign book, which we haven't had a new one of since the end of First Edition.

Might be like DCUMG 2nd ed where it just streamlines the game but the characters and cards stay the same.

We'll see what the future brings.

Here's hoping that it's actually the third 2-player starter box, and just as Suicide Squad was released to coincide with the movie, perhaps this will be a Birds of Prey 2-player box.

I would not say no to new BoP minis!

That's the buzz I've heard as well.

Conflicted on it. 2nd Ed has really found its groove and it feels far too soon for a change. On the other hand, the actual 2nd Ed launch was kind of a flop and the groove 2nd Ed found is more or less completely different from with all the changes introduced in the last year or so. A 3rd Ed built on the modern game might really take the game where its always had the potential to go.

For the most part, I think so. It's quite stiff for the most part and I haven't had any real issues with anything breaking or air bubbles or anything since things started releasing in Batboxes. There's a few models that absolutely terrify me like Damian's spindly little swords that are resin and really need to be metal, but I haven't had a problem yet. Some of the first resins have some issues; like the original resin Batman's ears are too tall to cast well, but I've been quite happy with everything released in the last year. Also, be aware that they put a small gate under the chin of pretty much every model now. It's easy to remove with the scrape of a hobby knife, but its incredibly easy to miss until you start painting. Overall, I don't think their resin is quite as good as PPs, but its probably my second favorite I've worked with so far.

I absolutely love the way Batman plays and to be honest it is probably my fav skirmish style game to play. I didn't realize how hard it is to teach new players though until I brought it up to the cabin for vacation and I tried to teach it to a friend and their kid. I put me and my step son on opposite teams and one of them with each of us since we are experienced players but it was honestly not easy at all. I do hope with streamlining it will make it easier for new players to be able to learn/ pick up but at the same time i really hope it doesn't take too much from the game play and strategy aspect of it. It gets concerning as looking at other games I play when they go to a new edition sometimes it can be completely destructive. ***cough*** 40k sixth edition ***cough***

Looks like they'll be making announcements between Oct 4th and 14th according to their IG

EDIT: As I look more and more into stuff I want, I'm getting seriously annoyed at the amount of DCUMG packs that I WANT to buy that don't include the BMG cards for those characters that have the rules. Sure I could DL the cards from the website but the website is hit or miss about having the backs of said cards.

LexCorp, JLD, are Crime Syndicate are all super good deals because at least 2 models (some cases more) per pack have BMG rules and are models I want, but without the BMG cards I'd never pull the trigger.

Hopefully these announcements will address the lack of proper crossover with these packs.

Couple things.

Red Hood Joker and Hagrid on Bike are the exclusives for the 10th Anniversary sale so far.

The majority of the website is at least 33% off with some items being 50% off. HOWEVER, if yer in the US shipping is gonna kill you, effectively wiping out whatever savings you might actually make.

WOW. So much stuff I wanted to get added 12 items to the cart so far and shipping is at $85 which is 1/3 the cost of everything I want.

Unless they do something like discounted shipping or free shipping on this sale there is no point in the USA to order.

So looks like a very sad but hard pass for me.

Every item added almost adds its cost or half it's cost to the shipping per item.?

Just another European company taking advantange the USA, sounds like another European company i know. Except they do it thru a rediculous exchange rate and dictatorship over all vendors they supply to in europe. Hail GW.

that's just the reality of international shipping,

just like almost every miniature market or FFG sale even with stuff at 70% off the shipping from the USA to Europe means its rarely worth doing

unfortunate yes but hardly a conspiricy

Thanks for the heads up on the sale, going to pick up a lot of stuff I've had my eye on for a while. Mainly want them for display, but maybe also to have a stab at the DCUMG at some point.

To that end, how many minis makes a decent team these days? I'm getting the JL and the Titans box so I should be good for heroes (I think most of the Titans have multiverse cards available?) but for the villains all that's on my list at present in Darkseid and the Rebirth Legion of Doom box. Would those (plus some BMG tagalaongs like Deathstroke, Harley or Deadshot) make a decent sized roster to pick from?

See if they'd coincided multiverse cards with that sale, I'd be interested...

I'd quite happily buy the Titans and Doom Patrol. And some others too, but...

Not to mention the combining the rereleases with new models.

*Sigh*

It kinda comes back to KM making decisions to just frustrate their customers.

I picked up the Joker set. I did consider getting more but I've not played the game in a couple of years so it seemed unwise to impulse buy everything I could possibly want.

Incidentally what's happened to their model range? It seems a lot smaller than it used to be. Many of the models I was planning on getting but didn't due to lack of interest at club are gone.

DCU_Final_D is first edition rules.

Knight seems to be collapsing a lot of their ranges into single larger boxes. Even so, though, a lot of their old metal models were discontinued some time ago. But you can find them still on some independent stores.

However beware that those discontinued models are also likely not legal for standard tournament play if that matters to you.

I have long disliked the way Knight Models has worked as a business, but have almost always appreciated their work as modelers. It's a difficult position to be in as a gamer. I find it very hard to support their business, but I really enjoy the models.

Everything about this current sale is an example. Exclusive miniatures (that are not always exclusive). I sale with no clearly defined start or end date. The shipping costs, again, with no clearly written explanation.

(By the way, if anyone wants to get in a combined order, I am really looking at that as my only possible means--its probably even cheaper to ship to the UK and then the US than it is to ship directly from KM.)

I wish them well as a business, but I just wish they would get a decent PR person to work on their image a bit.

Do KM generally update/email when they dispatch? My order's been sitting at 'Payment Accepted' since Saturday, would have expected a dispatch notice since then but then again, this is KM!: Could be they're just slow getting stuff out with the sale, but I figured it was worth checking.

It's very hit or miss, but given the big sale and the fact they're borderline making things to order, I'd expect things to be slow....

So it looks like Joker Red Hood is using the new 3rd edition rules and does NOT come with a standard 2ND Ed card.

Some interesting notes from someone who playtested 3rd (supposedly)

No more action allocation based on Willpower, Willpower and Endurance are now just life stats with specific tests to each.
Raise the Plan stage grants 4 Audacity tokens to spread across your forces. Characters can Move, Attack, or Manipulate but if it has an Audacity token it can do two things and take a special action.
Attack and Defense stats = how many dice you roll for those abilities.
"Stun damage now goes to willpower, blood damage goes to endurance. So some models stick around a lot more now"
Objectives are now a randomized deck of cards, exclusive cards come with batboxes.
Something akin to Malifaux's scheme markers are now in BMG with models being able to affect those markers

Should be interesting if some or all of this turns out to be true and how much more streamlined the process for playing the game is.

Red Hood card is out there but I won't post it here.


Knight Models Latest: Latest releases pg 52 1/18 @ 2019/10/15 09:58:54


Post by: Paradigm


Huh, honestly that sounds kind of awful..

For me, the resource allocation was the big draw of BMG's tactical side, and having characters that could do a lot of different things but not everything, every round was a defining feature of the ruleset. Switching that to essentially a Move/Action/Bonus Action system strikes me as far more generic, so I think flavour will be lost even if the game is somewhat streamlined. It'll play faster, but the Raise The Plan phase goes from the most important to now basically perfunctory.

I do hate to rant about stuff like this,especially based on rumour, but I do think I'll be sticking with 2nd if these changes pan out. 1st to 2nd was a major improvement, but this seems at least to be streamlining the game by ditching what actually made it different and interesting, and I'm not really seeing an upside. It sounds almost like a quick-start version of the game rather than the actual thing. Wait and see, I guess, but I'm not hopeful.

I'm unsure. It's definitely less unique, but the game was also pretty slow and really struggled to make the heroes feel heroic. It was so reliant on cheap henchmen that could stand on a static point that it was just never really taking... well, Batman.

I think what will make or break the new edition for me is how they translate the playstyles of crews. 2nd edition in particular had done a great job of giving crews their own game to play as the unique objectives kicked in. If they can keep that feel, I'll probably be a lot more interested.
