Facebook tells me that Knightmodels are planning a big new FAQ for the game tomorrow in relation to the new book.

I'm definitely down for the new book myself, plus Gambit. I'm not loving that New 52 Flash though, would rather wait for a TV Flash.

Zoom's neat, but if preorder gets me the Black Flash, I'll go for that. Hawk Man looks cool, but it's not like I'd really be using him or Hawk Girl (who I don't own).

So, overall, not as big a purchases as I was expecting from me so far....

According to some of the Spaniards on the Corvus Belli forums, the shipping costs are because of a non-compete law that courier services in Spain have to abide by. They cannot set prices below what the government's postal service charges.

Not technically news, but this is the first time I've seen this online, the AK Batmobile card via Crits Kill People:

http://www.critskillpeople.com/2016/04/batmobile-spoiler.html/

Parts of it don't make a ton of sense without the vehicle rules from the Flarrow book, but that's some pretty nasty shooting at any rate!

Via ToaTS, Speed Force rules
http://pressganger.blogspot.co.uk/2016/04/exclusive-speed-force-in-batman.html

There's a lot there so I won't copy it all over, but the short version is that a Speedster gets Speed Force points up to their Speedster value at the start of a round, these are used to use abilities that then last for the rest of the round. There's your basic super speed, and then some more fun stuff like doubling or tripling your number of Attacks, disarming enemies, phasing through matter or even moving to anywhere on the board (though currently only Flash can do that, Zoom can't get enough Speed Force tokens).

The pool of tokens is set at 10, so if both sides have Speedsters, they will potentially slow each other down which is brilliant, straight out of the comics!

The speedforce rules seem...powerful. Unless I am missing something the speedsters aren't that expensive...seems to be auto-include for your gang.

I am interested in other speedsters that may be in the book (Jay Garrick, Kid Flash) ...the book seems to have comic and TV characters in it.

Let's see:

Flash
125 Rep $0
6 Speed force (assuming you get to have all six tokens)

Fast Combo (up to 6 attacks at 4+ str)
Super Speed 3 (additional 30 cm movement, but possible unknown issues on a 5+ speed force roll)

or

Super Speed 1 (additional 10 cm; plus his non-Acrobat Speed 5 trait)
Rapid Disarm (prevent ranged attacks in contact)

or

Hyper speed (place the model anywhere on the table)

I don't know, the fact that you can take only two Speed Force powers in a turn, and only if you are Flash as Dr. Zoom (and likely other speed force models) can only take 1, does not make them break the game. If there was no limit, and you could Fast Combo, Muscle Growth, and Super Speed a couple of times, that would be pretty hard core.

I like the addition to the game. And I'm picturing more such additions, like say, a Magic Force and powers that will come from that (looking at you Zatanna).

Indeed, they can do a whole load of stuff but only be really good at one thing at a time. If they're punching a load they're not running all over the place, if they're healing they're not hitting ect.

When you consider that most other models in the 120-30 Rep range tend to be very good all rounders (Batman, comic Deathstroke, Cyborg, Black Manta) or very, very good at one thing (Arrow, Grundy, Clayface), so really Flash and Zoom aren't too far out.

I was having the same thought about other 'forces', a Magic Force and the introduction of the likes of Constantine, Zatanna, Baron Ryder, Damien Darkh ect would be awesome.

I suspect Captain Cold and Heatwave will have that (banana peel) option...under a different name.
(ice rink...melted tar...who knows)

New Strategies from the Flash/Green Arrow expansion book coming out soon.

http://www.critskillpeople.com/2016/05/new-flash-spoilers-factional-strategies.html/

There's certainly some interesting new things to look at. A fair amount of manipulating sewers and lampposts. I'm definitely a fan of this as I love using the sewers.

A couple of ways to lower Willpower. Certainly meant for Ivy and Scarecrow.

More new strategies from the upcoming book. These are strategies that can only be taken by specific bands. (The book is maybe shipping today from Spain.)

http://www.critskillpeople.com/2016/05/new-flash-spoilers-factional-strategies.html/

Also, the rules for the Speed Force paradox has been released. Definitely puts a limitation on those Speed Force users.

Interesting, I see at least 4 new characters there (Hawk, Dove, Wildcat, Starling). Looking forward to seeing who shows up in the other teams, especially the Suicide Squad...

Also interested in know if its ANY version of the character. Catwoman and Ivy already have two versions each. Its a fairly large list of options, but still pretty limited in playability as just a list, I think.

I'm just glad I can finally play the 'Big 3' Birds of Prey (Bartgirl, Canary, Huntress) at 200 Rep without needed to fudge the Free Agent limit. Being able to add in Ivy, Strix and Katana in as well is neat going forward for a N52-based team.

No, it's because the US is the only place you can ship a 2 pound book for peanuts. Everywhere else in the world, it's weight not content that you pay for. It's why I in Canada can't sell books to people in the States, I no one will pay $20 shipping for a $10 book. US tax payers threw $5B at the USPS so you all could get cheap postage for your heavy books.

BACK ON TOPIC...

Is this book to bring the Batman game in line with the Marvel one--so you don't have to play mooks but just heroes?

Not really. While this does make a selection of all-character teams available, the game mechanics are remaining exactly the same, the Marvel system (as in the Marvel Universe game as opposed to the Spider-man one) is entirely different in every way. both in scope (there are no henchmen of any kind, at least at this stage) and design. This book is purely an expansion for the basic Batman game to introduce Speedsters, Vehicles, Team rules and a few slight changes to pre-game stuff and objectives, it's not changing anything about crew selection or anything else for the most part, just adding to it.

Currently, there is no way to make the Birds have any more than 5 models. The cheapest we have right now is Animated Batgirl (47), Animated Catwoman (50), Strix (61), Huntress (66), and Canary (69). This is just under 300, so that's not bad for a 300 band. But there's nothing to do to take it to 350.

New Batman and Joker Equipment charts. Batman has all the cool toys.
