Knight Models Exclusive Preview - Venom!
After our Huntress preview went down so well, the guys at Knight Models have sent us something for the Marvel fans!
Eddie Brock a.k.a Venom.
Long term enemy of Spiderman, Venom is an alien symbiote that first appeared in Secret Wars as a black suit for Spidey. Once Parker managed to get rid of the Venom symbiote it found Eddie Brock and became the monstrous Venom we all know. The mix of Venom's hate for Spiderman and Brock's hate for Peter Parker has made them a very dangerous foe.
Venom was then auctioned off when Brock was dying and found its way into the hands of the former Scorpion Mac Gargan. (Which is who this sculpt seems to be based on)
In the modern era the Venom symbiote is controlled by 'Flash' Thompson and known as Agent Venom. But, if Flash loses control, this beast can show its ugly face again.
The Venom model doesn't have any game rules at the moment, but the word in the Knight Models based Facebook Groups Arkham City Limits and Marvel / Superhero Miniatures + Gaming is that they are working on a Supers rules set for the Marvel minis and higher powered DC characters.
Could this be the start of a tabletop symbiote invasion? Are Carnage and Toxin coming in the future?
I hope so!
