Not really up on my comic characters, who’s the purple guy with the sword in the starter?


Baron Zemo. Captain America villain. The MCU had a very different version of him as the villain in Civil War.


Maybe he'll be more like his comic book counterpart when he shows up in "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier" TV Series?



There was a teaser at SDCC that showed him putting on the purple mask, so we're good there!

I don't know why he's even in that show. He won at the end of civil war he broke the avengers apart.

Do we know exactly what's in core set, in terms of characters and terrain?

I don't think I need extra dice or measuring sticks, but all of the other available options are tempting...

You get ten characters and the equivalent of one of each of the skus sold separately. To play it safe I just ordered an extra dice set for my wife.

Minus Modok and Hulk, of course.

There's a picture that shows the 10 in the starter, not sure about other contents:

Iron Man
Captain Marvel
Captain America
Black Widow
Spider-Man
Ultron
Red Skull

Crossbones

Found it!

Box Contents:

10 character miniatures
10 bases
1 Daily Bugle stand
2 cars
2 dumpsters
2 traffic lights
2 lampposts
170 Tokens
20 team tactics cards
3 map cards
2 affiliation cards
10 character stat cards
6 crisis cards
3 movement tools
4 range tools
10 dice


So aside from the miniatures available separately, looks like the terrain pack is a duplicate?

By all accounts the terrain and rulers set are exactly the one that comes in the box (they showed the terrain sprues at Gencon).

Interesting rules at a glance. I love how the semi-procedural missions even effect point size of the game, meaning you're encouraged to take a diverse roster. Really helps explain why Black Widow might ever have a role versus say Hulk, etc...

Edit: Also funny how models get "knocked out" or "dazed". Feels like a corporate mandated, "Our characters are not killing each other..."

The only thing that I could see being slightly different is that the terrain pack comes appears to also include a second copy of the news stand which is slightly different design. Could be the main game comes with the second version of the sign but will still be short one building compared to the main set. The terrain set also mentions upgrades to turn one of the cars into a taxi which isn't mentioned in the main set (both variant pieces could well be included but just not mentioned).

This isn't the MCU. Killing is wrong! Especially with spider-man on the field.

I'd love to see a punisher expansion that says "this character kills anyone who would become dazed or knocked out"

That would be cool actually, having a campaign mode with "lethal" characters, bullseye, punisher, wolverine etc who remove btho why beat from the game completely.

So, semi-getting ahead of myself (pictures will be added shortly), I did a Hulk paint-test since I had to paint up some Fallout Super Mutants anyway.

I was 100% able to match the Gencon Hulk model by doing a coat of Contrast Iyanden Yellow, and when dry a coat of Contrast Warp Lightning cut by two-thirds with the Contrast medium.

If you look at the Gencon models Atomic Mass showed off you can clearly tell most were, ironically, Contrast painted. For example the pooling on Captain America's leg is what happens if you let Contrast over pool during a quick application. :-p

Makes me feel optimistic, as Knight's Models paint jobs moslty just remind me that i'll never be talented enough to do them justice. :-p

Well, if you can't be in the same league as those DC painters, at least it sounds like you can get marvelous results with this game.

I see what you did there. ;-)

A lot of hero-based games tend to use those terms not because they want to be PC, but because it makes narrative sense. Not only do heroes usually not want to kill each other, but it's going to be more than a big big deal if Captain America gets murdered in a street fight. Villians would rather capture heroes and dive into a monologue. Even in comics, characters rarely "die". Many games that have named characters in skirmishes tend to allude to them not ever dying.

I like these terms.

-----

It's interesting that they're taking a page from Malifaux in that you declare your team, then choose the mission(s), and then you build your list.

The proprietary measuring tools for measuring distance and movement seems gimmicky and unnecessary.

What size are those bases? They look like 30mm beveled edges with 28mm scale models on them

40mm for most models, 60mm for Hulk/Modok is what i'm hearing.

I want this game to take off and be hugely popular, if only so we can get a Lockjaw/Kamala Khan 2-pack. I'll start working on a greenstuff "My name is Lockjaw and I love hugs." sign right now.

Bases are 35mm, 50mm and 65mm for now.

Characters can die. Once you stun them flip the card then do the same again

The game calls that "knocked out", but its just semantics.

This is why we can’t have nice things. No Kamala Khan! Lockjaw is ok though. The name-stealing, selfie-twerp doesn’t deserve a place if they can’t even put mutants in yet.

It’s like Marvel Legendary, I think they say knocked out. As mentioned, it’s just the PC thing.
