I'm liking those BatGirl changes. A small combat buff (needed) and a mobility buff too, with a small rise in Rep that exactly uses up the points you have left over when making a Birds of Prey with her in it.

Not having a cape that is heavier than the rest of the model will also be nice.

As for the redone minis in resin, it might just be the new paintjob but this possibly confirms my fears. Compare this original metal Deathstroke:

It might be the paintjob, it might be the pics, but that definitely looks a bit less sharp to me.

Someone beat me to the image side by side shot. One issue with not being home and only having access to GIMP at work, instead of Photoshop.

They are actually the same image, there is no difference. You can tell because the highlights and scuff marks are "exactly" alike. You can mimic highlights almost duplicated, but the weathering is a perfect match and that just isn't possible. If you do a transparency overlay, then resize you can see where everything lines up perfectly. The original image has a filter on it, which they used to do the fade/cleanup of the background causing it to be softened up. Since they didn't modify the sculpt from metal to resin, it doesn't make sense to get a new miniature painted up. It is just an extra cost so they would have utilized the same stock footage and modified it to be updated with the branding.

Edit: I take that back, they might have utilized a secondary photo from the multiple ones they took of it. There is a very slight angle difference in the photo unless there was digital enhancement done (which I wouldn't put past anyone).

I got most of the new models, they are nice most are one piece models. They are very light I am just starting to paint the newest prisoners. I think they will be very good for large models.

Which is the weirdest/dumbest thing. They really need to retire old cards as the new ones come out.

Have held off on new Batman miniature game purchases for the last 6 months or so but just caved and order Blood, Constantine, Zatanna, Doctor Fate and Swamp Thing for a JL Dark team along with the two new rule books (also threw in Knightfall Batman as was a big fan of the story growing up). Hopefully the new Red Son Superman promo will still be in stock when it ships later in the month.

It also wouldn't make sense given that the 'metal' version was most likely a painted resin master casting rather than one of the actual metal production models.

Knight Models have 25% off all metal models.

They also have several limited editions -

Flashpoint Batman
Harley Quinn Bombshell edition
Batmite
Calendar Man

In addition if you spend over 100 euro then you get a free new Red Son Superman.

Webstore exclusive Knightfall Batman was also added a few weeks ago so one to consider adding if you are making a webstore order.

There are also some large starter bundles.

Ooh, I like that Flashpoint Batman a lot. Far too nice a model to be a limited edition one-off online exclusive. For anyone just wanting that in the UK you're looking at nearly double the asking price once you factor in shipping...

Shame, as I'd totally buy one if I could get it normally...

Or triple it if you live in the USA. These exclusive webstore only models are pissing me off if you are going to do that atleast offer free shipping if you make a larger purchase.

UK get free shipping if you spend over 120 euros, around 75 Euro cut off point would be much better (and expand to worldwide).

To be honest, just cheaper shipping rates would do it. I've shipped stuff to Europe before and there's no way a single blister pack needs to cost 12EUR to post to the UK unless it's horrifically over-packaged.

The main kicker here is that some non-Bruce Batmen are something the community has been asking for for a good couple of years now, for two to come out inside a month and both be web exclusive is just unfortunate... Or classic KM, depending on how you look at it...

€48 to ship what I wanted to Australia, or €0 to ship it to my parents and have my brother bring it over in February......I think we have a winner.

Makes no sense to me. They change everything to inches I imagine for an American market and then segregate America. Talk about sending a mixed message.

There is indeed. Magic is now considered a ranged attack, which is a poor fix but better than nothing, and Penguin/,joker thugs with the same Alias got new names, so are useable again.

When I spoke to my friends about how to fix Magic, we agreed that you needed to treat Magic attacks as ranged attacks in terms of defending against them (allowing pings, dodges, etc), and they needed to cost some sort of Action Counters. Probably SC since Magic Users seem to designed with this in mind. KM did half of that. I'm hoping for some Action Counter increase in the next FAQ.

On one level, it's great to see them responding to concerns the community have. On another, it smacks of a lack of playtesting.

It’s my understanding that the Batman rules have a single guy writing them, so yeah, not much playtesting available. They are a super small company.

Not an excuse.

Plenty of games are published with a single rules-writer. but they get playtesting done and ensure new rules fit their game.

KM seems behind in this ability.

Honestly, I think the game has jumped the shark. Models are still nice, but the game has little draw for me anymore.
