I find the most important element to add to the base set is Size 3-4 terrain. Removes a lot of the parking lot feel of the core set terrain.

My table is something like:
Size 5: 1
Size 4: 1
Size 3: 3-4
Size 2: 5-8
Size 1: 2-4

Pure horizontal measurement is still one of the rare oddities I have seen people play. Measuring base-to-base is clearly what feels right, in game.

Muse on Minis has some sweet color printed mdf buildings. I recommend checking those out.

Pure horizontal is the correct rules though and base-to-base is also weird given it ignores the height of models.

Yes, but pure horizontal has models contesting objectives on the ground from the roof of a three story building. In both cases, its the one under-baked part of the rules.

In a pure simulation aspect I suppose, but it does allow for terrain to be interesting and dynamic without negatively affecting gameplay. Given the range one contest/control range, needing to measure vertically would require much stricter rules of where objectives can go in regards to terrain and could be pretty easily abused when objectives are dropped. I kind of like that the game functions with whatever terrain rather than feeling like I need to adapt my terrain to work with the rules.

There's a bunch of spoilers scattered across the net. I'm not sure if Thanos quite lives up to that cost, but he's pretty cool. I think the "Thanos Experience" is going to really thrive in the Ultimate Encoutner though. I haven't seen everything, but it looks like there's a "gathers the gems" phase and a final showdown where he has all 6.

A classic villain - before his return, overuse and...well.

Still, glad to see him here, and hope to see all the other classic Spidey villains eventually!

IIRC, GG is the leader of a "Spider Villains" faction.

So one might say it is.. inevitable.

I really like the sculpt of the goblin. It really catches the vibe of the character. I will have to pick him up.

If I were to come back and criticize the Goblin model, it’s that the weight is off slightly. He’s leaning to one side, but the glider is remaining level. It should be tilted the direction of his lean.

So, with Spidergwen and Miles Morales coming out, and Kingpin and green goblin. Do you think we will see other SPidervillains soon?
Carnage is in the Artwork so he has to be in the pipeline. Maybe he is paired with another symbiote? Riot could be one, in the comics he was beefy but not really as big as Venom
Maybe Carnage with Black suit Spidey?

If they do another Symbiote I’d put my money on Scream. She’s had her own comic title lately. Black Suit Spidey, who’s Also had his own separate title lately is probably more likely though.

Thanos and his crew(Corvus Glaive, Proxima midnight, Black Dwarf Ebony man, Thanos is huge, BTW...
,Drax and Ronin and the other Guardians,
Hawkeye and Agent Black Widow,
Dr Doom,
Cosmic terrain,
I've seen a Gwenpool/ Miles Morales set, and an additional Spiderman sculpt on a mailbox, (Might have been the same one, I forgot)

There is a metric Gak ton of 3D printed scenery for New York, and a couple of blocks of skid row, and The Mystical House for Dr Strange. Strange and Wong are out, I saw him last online for preorder last week...

The Ghost rider and Carnage are later this year, IIRC, I haven't got back to my local shop to see the next batch in a week or so.
There were a couple of others, but I haven't seen them out yet. Punisher, Some Doc Ok variation, and Something else, but I can't remember just yet. I'll add it later on...

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Please tell me it's the Into the Spiderverse Doc Ock and not just an alternate pose or something.

I have to say I'm just generally really stoked for all the Spiderman stuff, which is strange since my only nostalgia was the old 90s cartoon show.

Superior Spider-Man would be a great add. As I contemplate my potential future team of web slingers, I’m considering converting a Super Spider-Man and just using Doc Ock’s rules.

If a new doc Ock, the one from Spiderman 2 pls. He always looked like the best incarnation.

Well, it WAS a pretty great show! Maybe aside from X-Men, the Spidey end of the Marvell universe is probably the most compelling, charcter-wise.

Yeah he has a pretty memorable rogues gallery both powers wise and visuallly. N0oot to mention, compared to other characters, I can name most of his characters off the top of my head.
Not to mention he also steals villains from others. Daredevil has to share custody with Spiderman for Kingpin.
Im honestly waiting for Vulture. Hopefully they take some design cues from the movie/games cause he kinda looks dumb lol otherwise haha

Yeah, he’s been largely on the up and up lately I believe. I wonder if this’ll be the current incarnation of Gwen where she’s also her universe’s Venom or if it’ll be when she had her own powers. I assume old version, since that’s what was in the movie and shows.
