Yeah, after hearing about the GW price increase I decided my cash would go to this game instead. Also got Venom and the core - I'm looking forward to painting everything up.

I'm probably going to base the tiny ones with a few items on them like a penny, an ant mini, lego, etc and make the bases look like its just zoomed in on them. Should convey the size difference.


That's a smart idea. Maybe I could find a big Duplo block or something, make it look like a giant Lego brick...

So they went with the movie versions of Antman and Wasp? I'm a bit disappointed about that, I'm not a big fan of those helmets.

The bit count is one the high side, I've called out Ultron in this thread for being particularly high. However, I can see that being a problem if all you're used to is PVC board game pieces like so many people starting the game seem to be.

But if you've built something as ubiquitous as a Marine Tactical Squad then they don't need skills you don't already have, all the pieces fit well and frequently the joins are placed where they're going to be hidden or look to be part of the model, so if they're really giving you trouble as a wargamer I'd suggest perhaps you need to slow down and take a little more care, they're not any more challenging than some of the slightly fiddler parts of GW kits.

Here's proof.

Dr Strange is going to lead the Defenders (taken more from the comic incarnation than Netflix shows). He's supposed to come out in August and we know the team will contain Spiderman, Hawkeye, Hulk, Valkyrie. Ghost Rider is almost certainly also going to be in the list as well and releases alongside Strange.

Punisher/Taskmaster and Angela/Enchantress are currently expected in September and Kingpin/Bullseye/Daredevil are scheduled for a November release.

The communication to stores in NA is that Asmodee is just going to flood product in June and catch us up. In additional to Black Dwarf/Ebony Maw and Drax/Ronan, we're supposed to be getting all the backlog (Gamora/Nebula, Proxima/Corvus, Hawkeye/Widow2) in June.

There's a possible Marvel Knights team with this list. A lot of street-level characters here, and I love it.

Yeah, they have a lot of options to work with. I was initially very put off by the open construction, but they've done a great job with the affiliation rules to make it so you can take a faction and adjust it with a couple models to make it still work and still tie together thematically, but have characters who aren't strictly part of the team.

IDK if this is Ok, if not a mod can tell me to knick it off. BUT
I got 2 friends into it, like actually into it, they bought heros and everything. Got me excited. Unlike me they are not buying every hero, but the squads they like.
My friend does desperately want Squirrel girl though.

I've just about got all of my MCP stuff assembled. For me the hardest was the 2 captains - Capt. Marvel had a big gap across her shoulders, and on Capt. America I just can't get the shoulderpads fitted right.

Also I'm really glad I have some Vallejo plastic putty - it's a thick liquid that fills small gaps really well. I smoothed out all the seams on Venom and he looks perfect. I plan to paint him up using a black glaze over a gray base so I couldn't have any seams or joints that the glaze might pool in.

Overall the minis are good. The amount and quality of terrain in the core box is amazing though. So many companies would have cheaped out with cardstock instead of hard plastic.

I did find captain marvel bad, her right shoulder detail got messed up on mine. I was really hoping to make he look good like sorastros with NMM.
So im going to paint that up then put some battle damage with a green lazer blast on it to cover it.
I have found the other stuff less infuriation, Winter Soldier and Vision went together fine,and did Black pannther and Killmonger.

Yeah, I'm really hoping they get around to her soon. Definitely the hero I'm most keen on, I think. But I'm also just buying models I want, and there are enough that I can have some flexibility in building lists even with just the three teams so far of Wakandans, Guardians, and Asgardians. Web Warriors will blow things open for me though - there's SO many Spider-people and I can see myself picking up all the heroes and villains. Another friend is really waiting for X-men, so I hope they happen too, for his sake.

I told my friend when they get around to new Xmen stuff is when we will see new Xmen movies. Partially to ride the hype.
I mean there are so many popular Xmen that they could be a years to 2 years worth of releases.

As you would expect from someone with Thanos’ bone fides, the Mad Titan’s rules make him a powerhouse on the tabletop. With sturdy defenses and plenty of Stamina, Thanos can confidently hold a battle line against other characters. His attacks also pack plenty of punch. His Cosmic Blast attack is a Range 3 Energy attack that Thanos can pump up to Strength 8, with the added bonus of the special rule Titan’s Will that can hurl an opponent back and leave them Slowed.

Thanos also has a full suite of powers to help him achieve his insane agenda. As the ruler of the Endless Resurgence, he has a leadership ability that affects all the members of the Black Order, granting them victory as they tally up their defeated foes, while the Death’s Decree power makes his minions fight with greater ferocity for the cost of 2 Power.

Of course, Thanos desires nothing more than to possess the Infinity Gems and wield their incalculable power. His innate superpower Being of Immeasurable Power represents not only his great personal strength but also his resolve and ability to control the gems. Being of Immeasurable Power reduces the damage Thanos would suffer from enemy effects by 1, as well as allowing the Mad Titan to take two Infinity Gems at once and use their active and reactive powers without paying the cost.

Perhaps even more terrifying is what happens when Thanos becomes injured. In his Injured state, the Mad Titan becomes even more horrifying to confront, gaining extra Stamina and modifying his Death’s Agenda Leadership ability to grant members of the Black Order affiliation the ability to reroll dice of their attacks—at a cost.

For those brave enough to face the Mad Titan’s full fury, keep an eye out for Thanos’ Ultimate Encounter, Infinity Gauntlet, coming out later this year. In it, Thanos, the Chosen of Death will put their strength and skill to the ultimate test.

So it looks like US distribution is back up and running. Team Covenant just processed my subscription for all the Black Order and Gamora/Nebula, and they don't do that, traditionally before they are 100% sure of their stock.

The next few months are going to be pricey for Americans with the weird backlog that accumulated.
