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. Each article is going to focus on ease and cost of ownership and provide a good first list beyond your starter box purchase.

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.

Lightening Strikes: Conesy’s Age Of Sigmar Stormcast Eternals

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….

Infinity USAdriana

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.
