Batman Miniature Game: The Batman Two-Player Starter Set Review

The Batman 2-Player Starter Box for the Batman Miniature Game

Knight Models recently released a new two-player starter set for their Batman Miniature Game. The starter features a rulebook, 17 miniatures based on the film, cards, and a slew of tokens to play the game with. The contents of the box are focused on the film itself. All of the miniatures are either inspired by the film or are characters from the film. 

For me, The Batman film was great. While dark, it captured perfectly the feel of a frustrated Bruce Wayne trying to make a difference in the city only to start to realize at the end that there is a different way. Seeing the miniatures come to life on the tabletop is fantastic. Let’s take a look at The Batman Two-Player Starter in this review. 

Five Takeaways from the New Batman Miniature Game FAQ

The Batman Miniature Game FAQ was released, on Friday, August 19th to much applause from the Batman Miniature Game community. Knight Models has clarified a number of lingering questions regarding the game in this FAQ. Certainly, as with every FAQ for every game I have ever seen, there are likely new questions that need to be answered.

You can find the Batman Miniature Game FAQ via the Downloads section of the official Batman Miniature Game website. Like many players in the community, I sat down with the new FAQ and gave it a full read this past weekend. Here are my five takeaways from the new Batman Miniature Game FAQ.

Kickstart Monday: Medieval and Wasteland Building STLs

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 KickstarterGamefound, 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.

This week on Kickstart Monday I found a few projects for the 3D printer I thought were intriguing. Whether you are looking for some historic buildings to fill in that medieval game or you are playing a wartorn or wasteland game there are projects here that should intrigue you!

Medieval Town

Medieval Town from 3D Fortress offers some great, historically based, medieval structures for your gaming table. These models are scaled for 28mm models, but can be easily upscaled if you need it for larger scale games say 32mm scale. The amount of detail is quite impressive in what’s shown. On top of that, something you don’t see a lot with these projects is assembly instructions!

The towers and walls have several assembly options to customize them to your needs. The most exciting part of this project, for me, is the decor. Carts, wagons, and crates of produce that you can use to create a full-blown medieval market. My mind jumps to imagining an adventuring group being jumped by the local thieves guild in a medieval market and having my players have to deal with the various parts of the market as well as various people at the market and perhaps even the town guard at some point.

If you are like me and can imagine great stories around this terrain then perhaps this is a project you should check out!

Wasteland Memorable Buildings

Wasteland Memorable Buildings from Bad Roll Games is the next STL project from this creator. This is a creator I have supported previously and am printing is Mansion project currently. These models have pretty incredible detail and scale well for 28-32mm games.

There are three buildings included in this project. Each of them is modeled to look as if it has not been used for years and the decay is designed brilliantly into each one. These are great models to add to a post-apocalyptic or wasteland terrain table. Whether that’s for a game like Fallout or you are doing something where some of your tables have modern urban modern decay these buildings will help you fill out that table with great terrain.

If you are looking for great urban decay buildings to fill in your table then you should check out this project!

The Best Modern War Gaming Terrain for Your Game Table

BMG in action

One of the biggest challenges for many players when getting started with tabletop miniature war gaming is to find the right terrain. Even as a seasoned war gamer I felt like it was a struggle to find good terrain for my games of Batman Miniature Game. In this article I dive into some of the best places I have found to pick up terrain for my modern war gaming needs.

Modern war game terrain can take several forms. You have to decide if you are gaming in the more urban areas of the world, residential suburbs, or even rural locations. The place in the world becomes a consideration as well. Playing a game set, for example, in the Middle East is much different than trying to play out a game on the streets of Gotham or New York City!

Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular game settings and see who makes great terrain for that environment.

Game Review: Marvel Crisis Protocol

Marvel: Crisis Protocol by Atomic Mass Games is a table top miniature game using the Marvel comic books for inspiration. With the huge success of the property and the long lived nature of the Marvel Comic Universe there is tons of content for everyone. Especially with the success of Marvel at the movie theater many of these characters are becoming household names and are growing in increased popularity. For us miniature gamers, who doesn’t want to put characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine, and Punisher on the table?

With ever growing choice in the miniature gaming hobby though does this game pan out as something worth buying or should you pass on it?
