Preorders are going up on some UK sites for the three starters. We're looking at £30 for the starter area, including mini rule book as a standard preorder price.

I'll link pages later today ( when not on phone).

That's not actually too bad, I was expecting £40-odd minimum considering it's 4 characters models that would usually go for about £12 each.

So $45-50 and a booklet? That's not so bad, considering most batman models are $16-20 hereabouts.

I'd love it if they had names for the different stat levels - you know - Unearthly Agility, Remarkable Willpower, Monsterous Strength - ah glory days

Knight seems to be firmly in the pre plastic Malifaux camp of sub par sculpts (in the context of boutique metals/ resins) with a strong IP and excellent paint jobs doing the heavy lifting.


Agreed!

The miniature quality is very hit or miss on what we've seen so far - hard to believe that they'd let some of these clunkers pass QC...

Wouldn't surprise me if marvel regards them on the same level as wizkids stuff, approval wise. And by that I mean they're largely indifferent to the quality as long as they get their royalties.

Are we talking miniature sculpts or castings? In general I have no problems with the sculpts. The castings have had issues, though the ones I've gotten overt the last 4-5 months have been significantly better than those from a year and more ago.

I was talking about the sculpts.

Star Lord is not very good, and a few of the other new releases are on the disappointing side too.

There does seem to be some very odd design choices made on the models. - Part of it reminds me of Raging Heroes aesthetic, actually. All the legs, all the time.

Although, the crass part of me is wondering, what are they going to do about Nebula, after all, "that woman is made of legs!"

Two major inclusions. First the trait Supernatural is defined. Its still pretty limited in scope.

Second, any model chosen to be Boss has its funding level reduced to $0.

Enjoy!

Cool.

Which stores did you see with the Marvel pre-orders up? I've looked around, but can't find them.

Pre-orders for the Marvel starters AND associated blister are apparently going up tomorrow at Knight Models. Associated blisters are going to be friendly models that can be used with the starter.

So, lets hear the speculation in full force; who's going to be added?

Groot for the GotG is a no-brainer. Hulk for the Avengers they do already have a model for, though they could surprise us (and if they do, I want Captain Marvel or The Vision!). X-men could get... hmmm, they don't really have any 'big guys'. But if they need a powerhouse, my money's on Jean, Storm or Charles (though as I mentioned before, he's going to be massively hard to balance).

Either way, my wallet is prepared...

They could do some pretty darned impressive background scenery / etc for both Jean (Especially if it's Phoenix Jean) and Storm.

Like, GW's Celestant Prime level stuff.

Seems like Psylocke is in the new film in a big way - be interesting to see the model done for her.

I figure it's either going to be Beast (so they have a big, tough looking brawler type ala Groot or Hulk) or Jean. But yeah.. I'm going to jump on this in a big way

So, the blisters are getting noticed at a couple of pre-order sites. (Definitely going live pre-order tomorrow Feb 12 at Knight Models)

Avengers: Black Panther
Guardians: Nova
X-Men: Deadpool

Enjoy!

Any pics yet? Looking forward to Panther, will probably pass on Deadpool as I just don't like the character (though I can definitely see why they've done him now), if I can use Nova with the Avengers (he has been a member at various points in time) I'll probably grab him.

I hoped it would be Deadpool or Cable! Top choice is realized!! Woohoo!! And I have somebody to play the game with. Definitely getting an X-Gang!

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Hah, that's brilliant! Though Stark has the short end of the stick there, must be easier to build a Hulkbuster suit by hand than put a Drop Pod together!

Must say, I'm starting to get really excited for this game. Not only for the minis, which are (mostly) awesome, but because all the info we've had so far in rules sounds great too. There's so much scope with the setting, and so far everything looks like it'll make the most of that.

I do think KM need to step up their communication, though; when all the info for a major IP game is coming from a blog and chatter on a Facebook group (they seem to have abandoned the Forums for the most part) it's hardly marketing. This game could be a hit given Marvel is currently more popular than it's ever been (well, the films are, the comics have possibly gone off the rails a little, but it's more in the public consciousness than ever ).

Only Tony Stark can attach a drop pod wing after he's already built the base.

So the way those blisters are listed, no love for deadpool and avengers? He was totally a member of the team for 5 minutes that one time, just ask Tony.

Well, they have confirmed that dual-faction minis are a thing. Wolverine is Avengers/X-men, I'm wondering if Nova might be Avengers/Guardians, maybe Panther could be Avengers/X-men given his marriage to Storm... but somehow I doubt Deadpool will be hanging out with The Avengers any time soon!

X-men also put him in a uniform once, after they knocked him out. It caused him to vomit. He then appropriated an old Jean Grey uniform to wear into battle. Her green blouse with yellow mask. Yeah. That one. The one she wore on the Krakoa mission.

I'm just saying... Surely he could be on both teams he's a merc after all.

Failing that... None of the starters works for me, I'll just have to find a way to stick Spidey and Deadpool on the same team and be done with it. Or to recreate the Thunderbolts. I'm not a huge red hulk/Electra fan but punisher , Thomson Venom, and deadpool made that team worth it.

Deadpool being available to avengers might make me tempted back towards the avengers. We shall see I guess. I want more info before ordering.

If only so I can somehow attempt to convert a miniature to the time deadpool became drunken Iron Man.

If you want some of the single minis, I'd grab them sooner rather than later, I imagine they'll be disappearing pretty quickly and not re-released for a while. I'm assuming the cards will be free online like all their other stuff, as and when they get around to releasing them (I'd like to think they'd release the cards for all existing minis at once on release, then I'd definitely be grabbing a villain or two as well, but they didn't with Spiderman so I wouldn't bet on it here).

He did that to save Tony's soul from uhhh... Whoever that demon was, not mephisto but a lackey. Totally an avenger at heart. Just don't mind the control rods in the ocean

Thanks for the info Para, but I don't usually buy stuff from people who make their products hard to purchase. I've got such a backlog I'll be waiting to see if the rules and health of the post release game justify the cost.

I get the sense that KM kinda struggle understanding the whole internet marketing thing in general.

For example, there's no way that "hero-builder" and "critskillpeople" (including The Official Batman Living Rulebook) should be on separate websites, for example. - CritsKillPeople's articles could very well be part of a news site or something.
