Road to Renegade 2022 Bat Family Crew by Conesy

I am going to the Renegade to play the Batman Miniature Game from Knight Models. This year he’s packing a full display board and taking the Bat Family crew.

While you watch the video make sure you like and subscribe for more content from WiscoDice. Your support in these early stages means the world to us as we continue to slowly grow and learn more about YouTube and video content.

The Batman Miniature Game is a tabletop skirmish street-level game where players assemble a crew of miniatures and take on their opponent for dominance of the streets of Gotham city. Players also use an objective deck to score points during the game. Objective decks are unique to each crew and represent the thematic things that each crew might do in the comics or films.

Kickstart Monday: Fire Stations and Amusement Parks

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing since I was providing these recommendations already. So why not share my thoughts with a weekly blog about projects that interest me?

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

The Long Halloween Batman Miniature Game tournament I ran back in October is passed, but the energy of coming off a successful event is still high. That makes me excited about new terrain projects I can add to the tables as these tournaments continue to grow. Fortunately, there are a few modern terrain projects active on Kickstarter right now. Let’s dive into the couple I am most excited about.

Famous NY Fire Station STL Printable

The Famous NY Fire Station STL project from Bad Roll Games is an iconic building seen in one of our favorite 80’s movies. This iconic design, made famous by Ghostbusters, has been replaced in MDF terrain by TTCombat and others. Indeed, I actually own the TTCombat MDF piece. Yet, there is something about the additional detail that is part of the designs Bad Roll puts into their STLs that makes me very intrigued about this piece.

In addition to the Fire Station, there are a few accessories that are included that you can print to add more character to your firehouse or scenic table. Utility cabinets, sheds, and other little tidbits that are different than what I have seen offered in other projects for urban scatter.

If you are like me and are interested in building a table based on this iconic NY City Fire Station then you should consider backing this project.

Welcome to Rocket Park – 3D Printable Terrain

The Welcome to Rocket Park Project from Constantinos Caropoulos features an amusement park terrain set that you can print as either ruined or in working order. For me, one of the most iconic locations in Gotham City is Amusement Mile. That amusement park, run down and taken over by the Joker, is dark and creepy and so much different than another table of Urban two and three-story buildings on a generic street.

Much of this amusement park is also very modern so could easily become a themed table for a DC or Marvel Super Hero game. Of course, the ruined pieces work really well for your post-apocalyptic games. With a Ferris Wheel, Merry-Go-Round, Bumper Cars, Fence, Vending Machines, and more, there is plenty to really start to fill in a table of terrain.

If you are a modern or post-apocalyptic wargamer and you need a table of terrain that isn’t the same old city board then you should definitely check out this project.

Kickstart Monday: Die of the Dead and Cthulhu

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing since I was providing these recommendations already. So why not share my thoughts with a weekly blog about projects that interest me?

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

It’s Halloween and Crowdfunding is full of spooky, creepy, and otherwise heavily themed games for this time of the year. I didn’t have to look to hard to find two great projects that I thought are worth real consideration into supporting.

Die of the Dead: Xolo Expansion

Die of the Dead: Xolo Expansion & Ofrenda Variant from Radical 8 Games provides players with expanded content for the base game and another opportunity to get the original game. We spoke with Mark, the publisher, from Radical 8 Games about this game in Episode 99. Indeed, Justin had picked up this game on the initial Kickstarter run as well before the interview.

With a unique theme around the Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Mexican holiday. The game is presented with plenty of dice which you will, through gameplay, guide back to the land of the living from their caskets, ascending a stair, and finally returning.

If there is one reason to back this game, it’s for the amazing art and visual table presence. We find it a very interesting game and with the addition of a Xolo (dog) meeple to the game how could you not want a copy?

If dice games with player interaction, some luck, and amazing artwork are all things that interest you in a game then you should check this project out.

Cthulu: Death May Die – Fear of the Unknown

Cthulhu: Death May Die – Fear of the Unknown from CMON is the latest entry into the Cthulhu: Death May Die franchise. Fear of the Unknown features a new season in the franchise due to upgraded rules for what is hoped to be a more streamlined and fun experience. There are also 6 new episodes in the box with 2 new Elder boxes that will bring additional challenges to players.

This is a standalone entry into the franchise. For those unfamiliar with the game, you will choose one Elder One and one Episode Box which sets up the scenario you are about to play. Then you will play as an investigator to try to uncover and stop the old one from returning (or sending them back) over the course of the game. You will fight multiple monsters, try to overcome a ritual, and have to deal with the inevitable madness that comes with dealing with the Mythos.

If you love a narrative-driven, Cthulhu and Lovecraft-themed game then you should definitely consider this project.
