Knight Models DC Universe Aquaman Makes a Splash!!!

Jason Momoa Aquaman

Unboxing videos and blogs are a pretty common thing with gaming channels and media. WiscoDice has never done one…..until now!!!! For our first unboxing I picked the web exclusive Knight Models Aquaman (Jason Momoa). I have been slowly building and painting a Justice League team for their DC Universe Miniature Game. I love being able to collect some of my favorite super heroes. The thought of being able to even play a game with them gets me even more excited! I hope you are as excited as I am to get into the contents of this model.

The Packaging

The model itself comes in a single blister pack. The art and paintjob of the model look really cool and it honestly has great shelf presence if a retailer were able to actually acquire this and sell it. That said, this model isn’t available as a stand alone model except as a direct order from Knight Models. This isn’t a bad thing though. What Knight Models has done is reduced some product SKUs by combining the previous movie Justice League models into one, five model kit. It’s nice as I had purchased the other models previously to have an option to pick this one up separately so that I can complete the set of movie characters.

Do you know the only reward you get for being Batman? You get to play the game as Batman!

Conesy’s Batman Crew Collection

Who doesn’t want to play Batman? Let’s face it, the good guys are probably a big reason why we got into this game. I am a huge Batman fan, though probably a little less the comics and more the big screen and the animated series. This meant that I was drawn to this game and wanted to expand beyond the Suicide Squad box right into the Batman and Law crew.

Of course, those were a thing of first edition and now that we have third edition, those have all been combined into the Batman crew. This makes one of the largest single collections of both resin and metal models that a person can choose from. Lots of selections though, can feel very daunting from the go. I will take a look at how you could get started with two easy to purchase model lists.

Do you have the tools to take your crew to the fight?

In Game Action of the Batman Miniature Game

Thinking about playing games in the dark streets of Gotham City with crews of street thugs, cops, villians, heroes and all of their companions is brilliant fun! When you think about Batman grappling to a rooftop to only later drop off with his cape billowing out behind him to then start throwing punches into a group of thugs is a thing of movies and the comic books. That is, until you get started with Batman Miniature Game by Knight Models.

Playing out your favorite street fights, like most miniature games, is going to require more than just the miniatures. You are going to need a number of things to be able to play this game. We’ll take a look at all of the tokens, components, dice, terrain, and more that you will need to play a game.

Raging Heroes Toughest Girls in the Galaxy II Kickstarter Freebies

[ngg_images source=”albums” container_ids=”3″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_compact_album” gallery_display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_thumbnails” galleries_per_page=”0″ enable_breadcrumbs=”1″ enable_descriptions=”0″ override_thumbnail_settings=”0″ thumbnail_width=”100″ thumbnail_height=”75″ thumbnail_crop=”0″ order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]

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.
