It's surprisingly large, far bigger than it needs to be.

I believe it's the same as the Games Workshop paladin bases, which are, I think, Citadel 105x70mm Oval Bases

Pre-ordered the starter set for a surprise Christmas present to my wife (she got me into Batman) as well as Bat-Bane,

With the base sizes is it all going 40-60mm for leaders? Still painting some older mini's and wondering how to base them

A lot of the newest models come with alternate normal sized bases.

If you're not looking at playing in tournaments, I'd probably suggest sticking to the original 40mm bases. Then if you get the new big fancy models, assemble them with the scenery pieces, then use the older models for the smaller based versions of them.

Knight being Knight then. How long has 2nd Edition been out? As per a lot of comments here; lovely display pieces but... yeah....


2nd is just over 2 years old so no worse than a GW edition change really. It's not necessary but the changes look really neat and bringing it into a far more modern game IMO, I just want to see the full rules now so I can play


GW is generally four years between editions.


GW is completely variable between editions. 6th - 7th was about 2 years, AoS to AoS 2.0 was about 2 years I think, and there’s rumours of 9th 40k next year which would be 2 years as well I think.


Ya and 6th and 7th edition 40k was about the worst game in history, it was what got me out, 8th kinda got me back.

As far as Batman, it has been a great game if the new edition can speed things up a little it might be worthwhile. I haven't seen any of the new rules demo so i have no clue. I thought about Batbane, he looks cool and the black friday deal isn't bad but you don't get a discount on the set so the discount on Batbane kind of gets squished. The free shipping is nice but I think i gotta go the cheap route on this one and pass on Batbane and wait til a few other retails list their preorders to save some money.

Batbane is available separately if you stick in it the search bar (I think it's because it's catalogued in the DC area of the shop).

It's a LOT faster. There's a lot about 3rd's objective system that needs more play time to really judge the game properly, but speed is one of the big improvements in a lot of areas.

Excellent - I'm looking forward to this - thanks!

I've flirted with getting into their games a few times, but I've always hesitated after they dropped the Marvel line...

The DCU game is just a cleanup of the Marvel game. I still use a marvel rulebook, in fact...

Is there less standing around and babysitting objectives for the whole game in 3rd edition?

It seems like a lot of the emphasis is on camping on objectives, and not enough on smashing face.

Yeah. The old objective system is gone and replaced with an objective deck that looks like some kind of lovechild between Malifaux and Shadespire. The contents of that deck and how they tailor it to each crew's playstyle is the big wildcard in my mind. Everything I've seen points to a better game, but that deck is too important to really evaluate the game without having some significant experience with.

Anyone had shipping details for the black Friday stuff? Or is that not released until tomorrow along with 3rd edition?

My non-3rd ED stuff should be here on Thursday, but the 3rd ED stuff will ship out today most likely.

According to some people on the BMG Facebook groups, Knight has delayed Third until Jan 15th and is giving a Third Edition Joe Chill model to anyone who pre-ordered through them.

Can confirm. Something about a printer error with the objective decks.

Annoying as it was going to be mine and my wifes xmas present from the kids.

I preordered through a UK store so not sure if I will get Joe.

On the upside it gives me s chance to paint up my other projects

Haven't read the rules or anything but I read the new teams list and the update rules.

Biggest thing for me is Society is gone, which makes me a little sad but is probably for the best.

Movement is gonna be weird for a bit going forward with the changes to how things work with the 2nd Ed Cards.

Excited to try out the new rules tho

So preordered Batman 3rd edition on 12/9 just got the email from the online store i bought it from saying they had to cancel my order. The distrubutor they were getting Knight Models products from will no longer be doing business with Knight Models or taking orders for them.

First my LGS two years back now my online supplier. Knights models really needs to do something with their distribution.

The UK store I preordered through put up a notice saying they are not taking any more orders from knight models until they sort their crap out. They have said the boxsets they ordered will be arriving "soon".

Not sure if it’s the same in the US but Knight models have just opened up an Amazon prime storefront in some countries in Europe so you can get next day delivery straight from them although it is at full retail price. Wouldn’t be surprised if that has annoyed some stores.

Link to the uk store -

As it’s Amazon it does show if you can get cheaper from a different supplier as well.

Where ever the Emperor needs his eyes

Finally ended up getting my 3e starter after the long long delay. Here they had been doing relatively well with CS and shipping and then they bungle the release.

I'm not surprised to hear stores are dropping doing orders with them. Disappointed that Knight has continued to bungle things enough for it to be a thing. I'll stick with it though for now, I enjoy the game and the few games I have played with the 3e rule set they posted online have been good, if lacking in clarification on matters.

On to release news.


It's Lady Shiva.



And it's her GW like Release Teaser Video.


Jason Todd, The Red Hood, in the current or recent Red Hood outfit.



His GW like, release Video.

I'll get Hood, maybe Shiva. I'm more interested in whether or not Shiva (and her Video's 2nd Quote) means we will be getting Orphan aka Cassandra Cain, her daughter. More importantly if we get Orphan, will we get Spoiler?

The mask on that Red Hood reminds me of MK's Scorpion. I really like how they painted his eyes.
