Getting Started: Joker

In my third article for Getting Started crew guides for the Batman Miniatures Game, I am taking a look at the Joker crew. Remember, in the Getting Started series I am going to focus on Batman Miniatures Game and specifically look at a crew at a time and give my thoughts as to what the starting point should be. The focus in these is getting started with the game, and not necessarily the greatest tournament winning and soul crushing lists. Each article is going to focus on ease and cost of ownership and provide a good first list beyond your starter box purchase.

With the Joker crew, it’s about tricks and getting the best out of low level thugs. Joker crews are considered a horde crew for the game where you are going to want to get the best out of the worst, quite literally! While this could mean that you are looking at a greater cost to get into the game from the start, Joker crews can bring in some great thematic free agents and sidekicks to help give the crew some needed bite as well. This can help you out with beginning model count as you get your crew to the table. As there is only one starter available for this crew in resin, both of my recommendations will use that crew box as a basis.

Getting Started: Bane

In my second article for Getting Started crew guides for the Batman Miniatures Game, I am taking a look at Bane. Remember, in the Getting Started series I am going to focus on Batman Miniatures Game and specifically look at a crew at a time and give my thoughts as to what the starting point should be. The focus in these is getting started with the game, and not necessarily the greatest tournament winning and soul crushing lists. Each article is going to focus on ease and cost of ownership and provide a good first list beyond your starter box purchase.

With the Bane crew, it’s about powerful models that will dominate your opponent with strength. Bane crews tend to be elite models that play a very strong role on the table. Each one individually can be expected to serve their role and do it very well. With this article, I will focus on what’s available for resin purchases which makes your cost of entry in getting started with this crew easy and makes future growth expansions not too bad either.

Getting Started: Brave and the Bold

Getting started with Batman Miniatures Game by Knight Models can be quite daunting. There are so many crews out there that just picking a crew can be a challenge. The nice thing, is for the most part, what models to pick up can be as simple as which ones look good together. However, in the Getting Started series I am going to focus on Batman Miniatures Game and specifically look at a crew at a time and give my thoughts as to what the starting point should be. The focus in these is getting started with the game, and not necessarily the greatest tournament winning and soul crushing lists.

Getting Started with Batman Miniatures Game

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.

Fast Painting US Army

Finished

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.

US Army Showcase: Wave 2 and Adepticon

Adepticon

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!

US Army Showcase: Wave 1

First Wave

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.
