On an unrelated note, has there been anything official about MUMG being pushed back again? Last I looked, most places were saying 11th March, now most are listing the 17th as the shipping date.


Nothing official but one of the people who seem to know stuff said that it was going to be delayed for about 2 weeks on the 2nd of March on the facebook group. Some other people are saying the got shipping dispatch messages from KM today.

Quite a few people are expecting to have their Marvel models ordered direct from KM arriving tomorrow. - They've had DHL shipping notifications.

I imagine that the stores might get them tomorrow as well, in which case, yeah, it could be next week before you get them if you've not ordered directly.



And yeah, Arrow expansion, super, super, super yes please!

Arrow makes sense but isn't Flash a little super comparitively? Is it going to jive well?

If they go for a season 1 style Flash, it shouldn't be too much of a strain, especially considering there's both Hawk Girl and Cyborg in the game now anyway.

EG, he's not especially tough in a punchup, he just heals quickly...

Arguably, you could give him extremely high Movement/Attack/Defence stats, very few special abilities and a moderate willpower and you've portrayed an early episode Flash pretty accurately.

In the show, Flash is very toned down, I think BMG can certainly accommodate that version of him. He's moving at Mach 2 rather than near light speed, and doesn't have full control over the more abstract elements of his powers, and factors such as BMG's constant darkness and objective-based gameplay should balance him a bit as well.

Not being very good / in depth at the game, I'd have a go at doing something like:

Str 4+
Movement 6
Attacks 6
Defence 6
Endurance 7
Special 3
Willpower 7

Sneak Attack, Acrobat. - Then maybe some once per game rule about doing the Infinite Mass Punch (that's what its called, right?)

Well if you guys think it'll work out then cool. He still ought to get to finish his round in any location on the board he wants, and to have taken his actions at any other location on the board while getting there

Yeah, I was against Flash the whole time; his speed alone is not consistent with the game.

Only Mach 2? So he's only going 1600 miles an hour? Only 80 times faster than the fastest humans?

But, I guess KM will make it work. Obviously super fast, high dodge rate, not very good at the fighting (maybe strength 6+?).

Yeah, he's fast, that's kind of his thing! The comparison was simply to point out how the show is toned down compared to the comic version that can run literally faster than those around him can think, can observe everything in the instant that it happens, can run along a beam of light, so on and so forth.

Thing is, he's still no tougher than your average human, and has very little fight training. One bullet is going to seriously cripple him, so if you can get a hit and do some damage, he can't take much punishment. I'd say Endurance 6 tops, maybe even 5? Strength is going to be significant simply because of the speed, but he'll likely only do 1 Stun per hit. so he's hardly taking out a model a turn even with 5 or 6 Attack (which is going to leave him pretty immobile if he puts the WP into maxing it, so you can then pile in on him).

He can also only be in one place at once, and I'd expect some kind of 'straight line only, no obstacles' limit to any super-speed moves he gets. Combine that with the fact that the 150-rep barrier has been well and truly busted now between BMG and SMG, and I am certain he can work. Hell, make him 220-odd Rep if you need to, then him and TV Arrow are a crew unto themselves.

Is it just me, or does this cover remind anyone else of a young adult fiction novel? It looks like something that used to appear in the monthly book order forms back in elementary school, lol. Definitely excited for it, though, all the same.

It does kind of have that look, or even paranormal/romance/urban fantasy. Except neither one of them is actively showing abs, or is an almost-too-sexy-lady. But something about the layout and colors...I agree.

Marvel has made it to the doorsteps of the UK. Apparently also Italy.

I'm hoping against hope that its going to take less than three more weeks for the US, but we she see.

Not that I'm in a rush to have them and not play...

This just popped up on KM Facebook, found it via ToaTS blog:


N52 Flash and Black Flash minis... So awesome! Wonder if they'll be pre-order minis with the book (like Alfred and Red Hood Joker with the main book) or a general release... Need that Flash either way, though!

My Marvel minis came in as well, all awesome! Thor in particular is an excellent sculpt and very weighty.

Anyone from Knight models actually on here. Due to their somewhat awful moderators on their "official" facebook pages and knight themselves ignoring me I cant sort out getting my marvel stuff fixed as I didn't pay for damaged goods and if they refuse to sort it due to their hissy fit I don't see why I should suffer. Obviously I don't want to have to get authorities etc involved but if need be I will

I genuinely doubt it.

Knight Models probably number <5 staffmembers and I don't think any of them are native English speakers. Them visiting Dakka seems somewhat unlikely.

Best thing to do is email them in a polite and respectful manner on the "Private Customers" address shown here:

http://knightmodels-store.com/epages/afaa2a23-c31d-4ae6-b1cd-12757513fd3b.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/afaa2a23-c31d-4ae6-b1cd-12757513fd3b/Categories/AboutUs

But yeah, keep in mind that they just launched a new game and probably have very, very few staffmembers.

Flash looks great, one of the best sculpts they've shown recently.
Black Flash looks...awful.

Moto, what happened with your stuff that was bad?


Off topic, my x-men stuff came in. Somehow I had a full extra Deadpool body in his pack. No extra arms though. Just an extra body.

Just wait a little while and the arms will grow back.

From KM's Facebook:


New Deadshot and Captain Boomerang in there. New book will include team rules for Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, Secret Six and Teen Titans.

They're going to have to do something about Rep points if they want those teams to work at the tourney standard of 350.

The Birds of Prey list they have shown in 338 points, with no plants for Ivy. So, that's not bad.

But that Suicide Squad list is 330 BEFORE the unknown points for Capt. Boomerang and new Deadshot (who currently runs at 76).

I'm very excited to see the Birds and other teams. Not totally thrilled to see Flash coming, but we'll see how much they limit his powers.

I expect the team lists will simply be a specific pool of models you can pick from, not something that requires you to take every member. I imagine it'll basically be in place to get you around the Sidekick/Free Agent limits.

Yeah, I imagine that's more a picture for photographs rather than a "tournament points limit" thing

My colossus is missing a leg even though he's meant to be one piece, my x counters are in bits and my template has a huge crack in it where it joins together making it only usable if I don't put it together . Hoping it gets fixed sharpish.

As for this new book for batman I am interested especially in suicide squad. Movie versions could well be interesting

I really like the new deadshot. Much prefer him with the sniper rifle

If anybody ends up with a spare set of arms (but no body) for their Deadpool, send em my way! $5 for em, plus the $0.45 it'll take to mail em. Just PM me. Also, if you just plain don't want the arms (for whatever conversion reasons). I'd be happy having a classic Deadpool costume, and an X-Force or X-Men costume. Possibly X-men so he's a legit part of the team.

Yeah, I like the Arkham version, but I've always felt he should have a proper gun. Good pose too.
