WOW! It's a massive amount of Knight models news today.
A brand new website with HD rules cards, models listed by crew and more.

First up is the Arkham Knight Batmobile. The first resin model in the KM Legends range.

Next we have the huge and stunning Arkham Asylum. This MDF kit is an entire board on it's own.

How about some Joker and Harley goodies? The Killing Joke Joker is a new Leader and a very nice model while the Harley Gatling Brute brings some serious firepower to the crew.
You can even see a couple of yet unreleased Harley Thugs at the back of this picture. Next month maybe?

Two Face is getting a very nice boost this month. Spice and Thugs give the crew another Sidekick, Gas Masks, Rocket Launcher, Assault Carbine and more!

Are you more of a Scarecrow fan? He gets a set of very nice tokens as well as an Arkham Knight Militia booster of Medic and Rocket Launcher.

Do you miss the Bat-Builder? Well KM are here to help with the new Hero Builder Batman Crew Builder.

Last but not least, these are the first 4 factions for the 'coming soon' Marvel Game.

Scarecrow Token Preview and Halloween Freebie Offer

It was only a couple of day ago on here I said it's been a busy week for Knight Models and I didn't think that was the end of it.

Well, New goodies have continued!

Today they have posted up a preview of the new Scarecrow Markers from the November releases.
That's not all though. If you place an order on the Knight Models Website over Halloween weekend (30th, 31st, 1st) you will get a free pack of these with your order!

This weekend would be the perfect time to order that Scarecrow Crew or even the Wonderland Gang for that dress-up fun.

- Happy Halloween (for Saturday) - Hendybadger

Arkham Asylum + New KM Website

It's been a HUGE week for news from Knight Models and it doesn't look like its stopping any time soon.

So far we have had -
- The Sons of Batman demo team program
- Marvel Game rumours
- New Brand, Knight Models Legends
- Resin Arkham Knight Batmobile
- Alternate painting contest

Now, KM have announced a brand new website including additional player tools, and the first item available from the KM Legends line, the awesome MDF Arkham Asylum.

Here's the official post -
"Due to the questions, guesses and predictions from the community following the reveal of Knight Models Legends this week, we would like to explain a little more about our new brand and what the future will hold for it.

Knight Models Legends was created with the idea of bringing the magic of comic book universes to our original product range. Iconic Buildings, detailed vehicles and even alternate miniature lines will all become reality with this new brand. We will be using different materials such as resin for many future releases as we would like KM Legends to be known for its superior quality.

The entire Knight Models Legends range will only be available in our online store, so we thought this would be a great time to combine it with the release of an entire new website design. One of the first new products you will find on there after launch will be our already famous Arkham Asylum.
We hope you are as excited by this new project as we are and we promise that this will be a VERY special new year at Knight Models. All of this is thanks to you, the fans!"

What else are you hoping to see from KM Legends?

The post now contains every model, including promo mini, model names, packs, hiring costs, weapons and key traits.

This should make it an easy resource for anyone looking to buy / build a crew.

Here's an example -

Batman October Releases!

Knight Models have once again come out with another stunning set of new releases for the Batman Miniature Game.
First up is one of the main villains from the latest game, the Arkham Knight. Sidekick for the Scarecrow crew and skilled gunman.

Next up we have Talia al Ghul. As the comic version, this Talia is packing a deadly gun and is i Sidekick for the League and Lexcorp. (What? A new crew?)
She also has True Love: Bruce Wayne but can't be taken in a Batman crew? Hmmm.....

The one many people have been waiting for. The Arkham Knight Scarecrow Crew. Backed up by the new AK Militia, Scarecrow can spread fear and terror through his enemies causing them serious problems.

The Militia get some muscle in the form of the Militia Brute. Electric prods and cybernetic armour bring some serious punch.

Not one new crew this month but two! The Wonderland Gang are here to spread chaos and crazyness. Beams, mind control, long spiked heels and more!

For the MDF release this month there are a new set of Lamps and Sewers. Cheaper and more sturdy than previous ones and you get 4 of each in the pack so no need to buy several.

To finish off the month, we have some Nightwing and Robin markers. Let your Batboys run in style!

What do you think of the October releases?
Will you be picking any up?

Batman Crew + Model Data-Bank!

A fantastic resource has appeared for the Batman Miniature Game.
A new Data-Bank that contains all models for each crew, their Reputation and Funding costs and even their stat cards.

The full Data-Bank can be found here on Reino de Juegos.
It's a Spanish blog but all names, rules and info are in English.

As I type they are still working on this project but plan to have it complete very soon.

I think this will be a VERY useful resource for the BMG.

Darth Badger Returns to X-Wing

Back in 2013, Darth Badger starter playing X-Wing and went on to win the South West regionals.
Life then happened. Children, work, new games and all sorts. The X-Wing collection was moved on for make way for other goodies.

Roughly 2 1/2 years later, I got the itch again. Since I last played the game they have released all sort of new goodies including a whole new play type in Epic / Cinematic.
I could feel the dark side of the Force calling.
I gathered together some pennies, store credit and some extra work cash and started to make mistakes.

The Imperial Fleet has gathered again! All these pretty new ships.
What on earth do they do? Does the Imperial fleet work like it used to?
What am I going to be facing?
Can't wait to find out.

I'm not entering the dark battlefields of space alone though.
Mrs Hendybadger / The Galley Wench has grabbed herself a Scum and Villainy fleet.
Looking at the cards for these, I'm going to be in trouble.

Back with more on this soon,

Darth Badger
