Board #2 - The Industrial District

You may have noticed recently that this blog and my posts on Wayland have been a bit quiet.
This is due to that 'real life' thing happening and not having much free hobby time over the past few weeks. Everything should be back on track by next week hopefully though.

But, last week I received my goodies from the Impudent Mortal Kickstarter and a lovely building from Multiverse Gaming. (reviews coming son)
When I had a little spare time, I sat down with a knife, some PVA and a HUGE box of laser cut MDF and ended up with this!
Board number 2, the Industrial District.

It's going to take a while to get this all painted but what do you think of it all so far?
(sorry for the dodgy pics. They were all taken on a mobile)

Joker and Batsy meet once again at Smiley's (Ace) Chemicals
Speedy takes up position on the new Multiverse building.
Bane and Clayface fight it out at Star Tech (Labs)
Team Arrow appear from underneath the Factory Club (Verdant)

Wayne Enterprises ship into this area often.
Harley and Mr J join Scarecrow and Clayface.
Robin arrives in the Batwing
Joker's clowns cover the walkways, skylights and water towers.
Batman and his team take up base in Verdant.

The Bat-Builder Gains Article Links. Want Yours Added?

In it's ever growing role of the best Batman Game resource online, Bat-Builder has now started to add article links to individual model listings.
See Swamp Thing below.

At the bottom of the page for each model are links leading to articles on several blogs and sites (including this one). There are only a few at the moment but they want more!

Somehow, I have been nominated to gather and read them all.
So if you have a blog article, review, unboxing video or anything you think should be added, please email it to myself HERE.

Looking forward to seeing what gets sent it.

Lady Shiva + Agents Preview from CKP

The guys over at the CritsKillPeople Blog have a nice exclusive preview for the Batman Minis Game from Knight Models.

Lady Shiva and her League Agents. Some VERY deadly looking lady ninjas.
You can see Shiva's rules HERE.

Her ninja followers were hiding around the internet. They were found on Imgur, the Batman Mini Game Forum and the Arkham City Limits FB group.

You can see them all here below.

What do you think of these?
Will you be picking them up to join your League?

Bane, Two Face and Ivy Henchmen Conversions

While browsing the Arkham City Limits Facebook group, I spotted some nice repaints and conversions for henchmen.
Having a look through the Knight Models range, I started to plan some of my own.

There are 3 Banes in the range so far, but my Bane of choice is the Arkham Asylum / City Titan Bane. For his henchmen I'm using the Blackgate Prisoners. They match his costume and are also cheap in Rep to counter Banes 150 Rep price tag.
The Bane crew also has access to several skilled mercenaries but they don't really match the look I'm going for.

Luckily, the Bane Starter and Two Face starter Henchmen are armed with the same weapons. The Two Face Henchmen also have VERY similar outfits to the Blackgate Prisoners.
The plan for this is nothing more than some simple head swaps adding the Merc heads to the Two Face bodies and painting them orange instead of the split colours.

Looking into it a little further, the first expansion blisters for each crew are quite similar as well. The axe on the Two Face henchman will need to be split into two weapons but then it will just be head swaps again.
The idea behind these will be skilled Blackgate inmates that have managed to break into the weapons stores.

With the Bane idea, I'm going to be left with a few Two Face henchmen masks.
These would go perfectly on a set of Blackgate Prisoners. After the headswap, the orange jump suits will be painted in split colours and then I have 4 more cheap Two Face henchmen!

Then I came across this picture. Arkham Ivy with her hypnotised henchmen.
At the moment, Ivy only has access to Plants, Blackgates and Loonies so I cant really use the rules for Henchmen straight out of Two Face, Joker and Penguin crews.
As the Plants can't hold Objectives, some bodies would be really handy.
The idea here is to match the Blackgate cards to Two Face, Joker and Penguin Henchmen that are armed with the same weapons. Then either use them straight out of my other crews or get extra models to go with the green eyed look.

I'm sure I will have more conversions in the future, but that's it for now.

Which ones do you like the sound of the most?
Do you have any similar plans?
