Fixture of Dakka







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

Wolf Guard Bodyguard in Terminator Armor





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.
