Darn it, I was really hoping for Miss Martian and Artemis, otherwise the full Young Justice team is there which is awesome!

On the other hand, Roy, Jason and Starfire, Outlaws are a go! And I can't wait to see Superboy and Supergirl, they should fit into the game much better than Superman and be awesome models to boot!

OK, next month's releases. We get more Marvel, more Teen Titans, and more Animated series.

Much anticipated Starfire:


Teen Titan's Ravager


More speedster action in Kid Flash


Animated beauty Black Canary


Movieverse Hawkeye


The Vision


And Nightcrawler

Cool stuff! Surprised at the lack of a larger set this month, but not complaining! Vish looks amazing, as do Nightcrawler and Starfire. I don't much like Hawkeye's head but other than that he's fine. Kid Flash I need to see more of as it's kind of hard to tell what's going on with his pose.

Pretty much of the same opinion, Vision, Nightcrawler, and Starfire, do want. Hawkeye is decent enough. I wouldv'e liked a Ravager that fit in more with the Arkham Origins Deathstroke.

Still waiting on gambit. Marvel game is pretty much dead. These 3 (lol) releases don't help it. Knight are just shooting themselves in the foot. Batman game is average at best but obviously their money maker. Marvel line could bring in way more than batman if KM could actually bother their ass to do something with it (hint actually bothering with it)

I think you're confusing the Spider-man game and the wider Marvel Universe one. The former only got one release back in January, the latter has had releases every month since it's been out,6 in the first month, 2 last month (April was very DC heavy) and now only one less than DC this month (and arguably better models). Not sure what else you were expecting?

I don't think its been a bad run for the Marvel game. Its been monthly releases since it came out, and all three of the teams have had at least two new releases.

It could definitely benefit from some new teams coming out, for sure, especially bringing in the bad guy teams. Brotherhood of mutants, Brotherhood of Evil, I-don't-know-who-else to fight the good guys. I think its a definite must and I would hope its on the short list of things to get out. (Considering they already have released Magneto, Venom, and Thanos before the game was released, I think its fair to say that the bad guys will be coming.)

And, don't get me started on the Spider-Man Game. No idea why that was even a thing at this point.

It'd be nice for the rules for the Marvel game to be available online though. The rules that were included in the starter packs, were they just for pre-orders? Or are they included as a general thing?

All the starters come with a rulebook, pre-order or not. Online rules would be nice, even if it's just a wiki like the Batman one.

Oh yeah, online rules for Marvel is a must. I think all gaming systems need to make that a standard for their basic rulesets.

Marvels only had the initial releases out. Gambit and the laughable Groot ain't even hit shelves yet. So far the initial 3 boxes a repack and two other singles is all they've managed in 4,5 months.
Hey if you're happy good for you. Some of us ain't though. Its been an awful system they have. Aye batman has been out longer but marvel already had models. Even if they gave hulk, doom, magneto etc downloadable rules it would have been fine. They need to stop releasing single figures and get more team packs together. Its fine if you like avengers currently but gotg and x men are behind the curve (still no gambit or the thing) wont hold my breath nightcrawler will be out on time either.
They need to sort it out. At least think sensibly about releases. They could easily do batman one month marvel the next. That easy and would garner them some peace as currently its not good enough. A month of marvel releases, a month of batman releases and job done. Knight communication is utter trash as well. They wont even talk to shops that are expecting stock. It needs to change.
If you're a km fan I guess they can do no wrong but in reality they are (don't tell anyone on their official km pages though as you'll get kicked out without warning. Apparently constructive criticism gets a hitler like reaction)

OK, I'll admit, I'm a fan of the comic lines. (Grew up with Marvel and respect the Batman universe.) So, anyone that is doing a good job of making a tabletop game, which I have been waiting for for decades, I'm going to support.

I most definitely think that KM has a lot of growing and learning to do in order to have great success. Their lack of communication about nearly everything and their inability to make an impact into the US market are my may two complaints. (And, no, appearantly you cannot bring up such things at their "official fan page" without being berated and thrown out.)

All that said, the Marvel game was announced on Feb 12, almost exactly three months ago. In that time they have produced 3 starters, with rulebooks, and at least three new releases to support those starters each month. 20 models in three months, above and beyond what they are doing with Batman.

Infinity has not released 20 models in the past three months. WWX. Privateer Press. GW. Expectations seem a bit high.

Again, KM have some serious issues to figure out. Communication and delivery being two key issues, and big ones at that. But to say that they are not progressing their games at a good pace is a bit spurious.

Agreed. They do need to sort out their communication (being supported by.supporting fan sites like ACL, ToaTS and CKP is great, but that should not be the closest to official communication you get!) and maybe clear up their release schedule a bit (the last two months have both had releases pushed back by a week or two, I'd be fine with them taking a month off if it meant they could then get back to regular release dates each month).

But all in all, they're doing a good job. QA and casting quality is improving, the games themselves are great fun and the volume of releases is very impressive, on par or surpassing many more well known/larger companies.

So widow is level 4 but hawkeye is 6? Maybe he's cooler in the comics, but I didn't figure he had those kinda chops.

Lot of interesting stuff, teen titans batman game could be fun.

Nightcrawler is quite powerful, believe it or not. Despite being a decent guy in the main story, in Age of Apocalypse he has shown that he can teleport peoples' body parts off. Black Widow would have a hard time beating him if he teleported behind her and 'ported her head off her shoulders. And he's a helluva swordsman in CC too, plus far more agile than she could ever hope to be.

Oh, and he can (and frequently does) go drinking with Wolverine. No mean feat, in and of itself.

I imagine it simply the array of arrows and thus ranged damage he can put out, in practical terms simply more dangerous than Widow (who game wise is very much a backup character to someone like Cap or Logan, she can finish a model they've weakened, or block someone from attacking them, but isn't starting and finishing any fights by herself). Hawkeye looks like he could reliably put damage on characters without taking much in return except from dedicated ranged fighters like Stark or Rocket.

Try... 2 months. 3 if you want to include the preorder period and my Gambit is probably going to turn up by Saturday, I've had the shipping notification.

And, I've just realised I've accidentally ordered 2 Deadshots. Dammit. I've only had the preorder for a month.

Dammit.

Yeah Hawkeye being more powerful than rapier fencing super agility awesome (mass) teleport skilled Nightcrawler was kind of an issue too

But yeah maybe its a role/DPS output kind of thing.

Yeah I think it's just DPS/versatility. Hawkeye has 4 or 5 attacks with different types which is a big deal if the defenses work anything like pokemon do, all Nightcrawler has is two basic attacks. And then vision has more hit points or whatever and his various attacks have consistently higher damage. I mean the stats for nightcrawler for his level look ok vs the same for hawkeye. I guess that's just not how I had them ranked in my head.

I must say, the thing I find most appealing about Nightcrawler is his ability to BAMF someone else across the board once per game... Nice way to get Colossus into the thick of things early on. The fact he can teleport anywhere on the board as many times as he likes is also handy, makes him a great pointscorer or hit-and-run player.

I'm interested to see how Vish plays, he seems to be able to deal damage at the same sort of range as Thor (though thankfully without the Push 'bowling ball' ability!), but his defences are on the whole much lower, apart from Mental.

it's worse in the U.S. even though they have "increased" distribution there are 2 stores within 100 miles that have some stock..and one of those only has a few Marvel models.
KM desperately need to increase their resources if they want to grow. They need some kind of media relations person...and some actual Americans on their team to help with that Market.

Happy for the releases, just in our area Marvel is at a standstill. I love the game, but ive had my fill of civil war type games for now. It needs badguys to terribly bad no one is playing it here until then.

The rules also have major issues that KM is doing a pretty piss poor job at addressing. As in not at all.

I do recommend people playing marvel to sign up at http://marvel-minis-gaming.proboards.com/

There is basically the rulebook there. Someone made a quick reference guide that's honestly the rulebook. The investment to play is only 40 bucks, which gives the rulebook so I cant complain its not free online. Models are nice and what I did was just rebase my Avengers movie heroclix on scenic bases after buying the guardians so I have 2 forces. The plus to all this is the cards are free online so you save realistically just use repainted heroclix and you cant tell. Its what I did for Groot, and will proably do for this batch of new releases.

I was one of the "founders" of that board...I pushed for it on the Marvel Facebook page and posted tons of stuff...until I ran afoul of the Moderators...i.e. brought up some concerns about KM's lack of communication and their Lack of support for BMG in the U.S.
I was perma Banned from the FB pages and the BMG board...quit the Marvel board in frustration. The new FB page which is not connected to KM has a much more mature moderator and is a great group of people.
