Spider-Man's main nemesis is Joe Quesada.

There absolutely won't be. I can't think of a game I've bought in the past 5-10 years with specialty dice that hasn't had too few (well, Monsterpocalypse, I guess). Legion, for example, didn't even come with enough dice to roll a single stormtrooper attack.

Well they did say they would do variant cards depicting power-levels all the way through "This Raid boss is played by one player solo vs. two other human players..." ;-)


Man if this game has solid rules I am in for alllll of it. Release can't come soon enough.

It's hard to see this doing well with hard plastic models that people will only ever buy one of. Especially with the needing to buy two-packs that may have a character you don't even want. Special movement gadgets and custom dice doesn't get my hopes up either.

Looking things over, I do have to say Doc Ock is out of place in the starter. He's fine as Spidey's counterpoint, but if Thor/Loki had taken their place it would be a lot more cohesively Avengers based.

Excited about a LOT of these characters though. Not fond of Gamora's armor at all but its going to be hard to ignore the Guardians. Need Drax though. Really excited for Gwen as well, but needs at least one more pack of villains to do the Spidey stuff justice.


Here's hoping for some more Spidey stuff. Either Goblin and Mysterio would have me buying it stupidly quick. Something like Scorpion and Vulture would be cool too.

It's an FFG game, so proprietary dice, special movement sticks and endless tokens are their thing.

I suspect that, like X-wing, they will make pretty substantial sales to non-gaming fans.

40mm is very disappointing for me though, a regular 28-32mm scale would mean that it works with other things I already have, and better that I could buy the terrain without even caring about the game, but this... probably no.

People felt the same way with Star Wars Legion and A Song of Ice and Fire and both blew up. I suspect this game with grow just due to the label alone. Being plastic is a huge asset considering Knight models Marvel was metal.

I am looking forward for this, i just hope it doesn't do what Knight Model's Marvel did and we get to see all the cool models we grew up with.

It had to be somewhat of a collaboration with Fantasy Flight Games. The movement gadgets look identical to the Star Wars Legion ones.

I hope the rules end up being fun. Star Wars Clone Wars seems like a great setting for a miniatures game, but the rules just don't seem all that appealing to me from the reviews I've read. But Marvel Comics is another universe I'm very interested in, so if the rules end up being good I could be very into this. I suspect it's hard to get super hero games right, with how different and varied their powers can be. I mean, I don't see how Black Widow could be a 2 power level and Hulk a 6. Unless there are missions that rely heavily on espionage.

Looking at the Iron Man and Black Widow sculpts, it looks exactly like the metal Knight Models sculpts. Except they're inexplicably scaled up and in a material worse for detail. Scale fail killed Spartan Games, and with FFG's record of nabbing IPs and wringing them to death, I think I'd rather wait 3yr for these models to go on clearance.

I will say, I'm very curious to see how Spidey turns out. Is there any costume detail on the model or is that 100% hand painted.

Main issue with scale for me is that I already have a load of city terrain for Batman/DC and Walking Dead. I really don’t want to have to start again due to a 20% scale increase.


Does 40mm mesh with any model railroad scale I wonder?


It's close to American O scale (1/43). I believe 35-38mm is more accurately that size (which is what WWX is). 1/56 terrain/cars look good with 28-32mm which is 1/60 scale so O scale should look pretty decent with this but might be a bit on the small side.

Kind of tempted, bit pricey but I might need a low count skirmish game if my current skimisher of choice goes belly up (a distinct possibility as Steamforge seem to be skating on goodwill and not much else)

I don't think the Iron Man sculpt is the same, I've been search for an Iron Man paintable mini since the release of Endgame and I've not seen one like this.

I feel like Ebay resells and individuals might go a long way on this game. I think however their best bet is to offer singles instead of double packs, or at least, make the double packs really tailored. Ie, Ant-Man and Wasp in a pack, not Invisible Woman and Mordo or something random. These models are going to have a much wider market appeal that just tabletop players so offering MCU fans the chance to have their favourite characters is a goldmine.

Scarlet Witch and Falcon would have gone with those two better. With what they've got they did a solid job pairing everybody up though. There's definitely an element of "we couldn't make a mold for this if it didn't have some guaranteed sales.

According to this: https://twitter.com/atomicmassgames/status/1157277730288726016

The starter should be 100 USD.

Spidey seems to have detail on the mini itself: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0qg_INgvkF/?igshid=bfjiqaua5epg

I was interested in this, but I'm worried about the scale. I hate to buy models that don't look reasonably in-scale with the models I already have, especially since I already have a bunch of Knight Models stuff. Don't want to have a 40mm Wolverine towering over a 35mm Batman on my shelf (slight exaggeration, but still). Of course a lot of "35mm" scale models are close to 40mm high at the eyes, so maybe the practical difference won't be noticeable? I guess I'm going to have to wait and see.

Will this though? With X-wing you can buy a ship pack, open them up and places them for display without doing anything as they're preassembled and painted. These are hard plastic sprues that require effort and tools to assemble. It's not as mass market as I think people believe it is.
