Batman Miniatures Game by Knight Models is a great skirmish game set in Gotham City and follows the major story arc of the Batman universe stories. I have been recently diving head over heals into this game with painting and building and I wanted to share a few of my thoughts about things to do when first getting started.
I used a simple base-coat and wash technique to finish my US Army for Bolt Action. It is a quick and easy technique that produces pretty good results for the table. If you are shy about painting I urge you to go for it and start with this technique. It can also be brought up more by simple adding a layer of highlight or two. This technique could be used on anything by just changing the colors. I’ll also cover the colors I used if you are interested for your own US force and how I did the basing.
A continuation of the rundown of my US Army collection for Bolt Action. This covers the next two expansions of my force. It has become quite the collection at this point and it is all painted!
Listening to the cast you have probably heard about how I finished my US Army force for Bolt Action. This is the first full army in any game I have completed! This post is just to showcase and let you see what I have collected so far. For newer players, maybe you can get some ideas of what to buy or ways to approach the hobby side of the game. (more…)
After pretty much forever it seems, Conesy finally managed to get this episode edited. We apologize for the gap and delay. Life and changes in what’s been going in our lives has put getting content on the back shelf for a little bit. If you want to ensure you are update to date on what the WiscoDice guys are doing, make sure you join our closed group on Facebook where we seem to put the most updates.
On this episode, our intrepid hosts break down the very nitty gritty on the new edition of Bolt Action. What are the changes to the rules and some thoughts on where it’s changing their lists. Let me tell you, Brian and Conesy have never spent so much time doing prep work and going over rules for a game like was done for this show and that goes a long ways into showing how excited for this game and this release they are.
Topics on this show include:
- Bolt Action

With that, let’s roll those dice! Wisco’s for the win!!!!
More hobby work is up. Local store Pegasus Games ran a recent 1500 point Age of Sigmar tourney and this, with help from Combat Phase Kenny Lull who keeps talking to me about AoS, motivated me to build and increase my fledgling Age of Sigmar force. The tournament was a blast and I managed to win 2 games and lose my third to Kenny actually….
Hey all. It’s been a little while, but between taking a break from the show (just a break!!!), things have been a little busy. Adepticon has come and went and there have been some serious panic hobby before and now I am riding the high of hobby post convention!!! I have always really liked the game mechanics for Infinity, but I haven’t been really keen on the PanOceania that I started the game with. I have always had my eyes on the look of the models for USAriadna since I started. I had originally went down the path of doing Combined Army, which I like the look and want to get back to that project at some point, my painting mojo just hasn’t been there to work on those figures. Our local Warcor announced and Infinity escalation league with a number of new players and I threw my hat in.
It started out with the USAriadna Army starter box I had here along with the Unknown Ranger and Van Zant Gen Con edition models I had laying around here and with less then a week before the league started, I raced to get those models done. I also started ordering some additional models to start filling out some special model selections and other options to help flesh out the army.
Today arrived my freebies for backing the Raging Heroes Kickstarter for their Toughest Girls in the Galaxy II campaign. I have been a fan of Raging Heroes for quite some time and have a number of their models for my current dark elf and daemon armies for Warhammer Fantasy/9th Age. All of those models are metals and have been really, really well done. When I had backed this Kickstarter, Warhammer Fantasy (8th Edition) was still a thing and when I saw this, I thought I would use it as a way to build an all female model Dark Elf army. It’s taken a while, as with any miniature Kickstarter to get the models to the point that they can start to ship and this is just the very first bit of models that I will be receiving. The bonus is that I still plan on doing these guys up as a new army, but whether that actually ever hits the table or just becomes a hobby project…I am not sure yet.
Recently I picked up the Marvel Universe Miniatures Game by Knight Models. I have always been a fan of Marvel comics, since I was very young. Still, with the number of games I own that aren’t probably getting enough attention seems to continue to grow so I held off when I first saw this game released. After much staring at this and Knight Models Batman skirmish game for quite some time, I decided to jump all in and picked this game up.
So, you have the two player starter for Dropfleet Commander and now you want to add some models to your list and grow your game? Well, I don’t know the right answers to this question, but here’s where I am taking both the UCM and Scourge starters from the recommended ships to then next points level. The goal is to add a single carrier and frigate sprue to the list, while trying to fill some of the holes we were left wanting with the starter game.
