The Marvel Universe Miniature Game is HERE!


The Marvel Universe Mini Game is now up for pre-order on Knight Models.
As a nice little pre-order bonus, the starters are down to only £31 each until Feb 24th.
Each starter includes 4 models, 4 cards and a rulebook.

Above we have the X-men. Power stealing Rogue, team leader Cyclops, metal brute Colossus and the deadly animal Wolverine who can also join the Avengers.


Next we have the Avengers. Asgardian God Thor, super soldier Captain Amaerica, stealty spy Black Widow and super tech suit wearing Ironman.


The third starter is the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Brute Drax, thief Starlord, weapon master Rocket and the most dangerous woman in the universe, Gamora.


Each of the starters also has an additional model that can work with them.
The Guardians have the Human Rocket Nova
The Avengers have the King of Wakanda Black Panther
The X-men have the regenerative degenerate Deadpool!!! (Can can join the Avengers as well)


Useful in game is a Spray template. But this one is a little different as it shows the spray area in 3D!


Each team also has a set of tokens split in two colours. These can be used for Power, Endurance, in game effects, who starts the round or anything you like.

So, what do you think of the initial release?
Is it something you will be picking up?

Until next time.....
Excelsior!!!!

  1. I'd love to buy these, but would really prefer not to have to order from Europe. Are there any North American (preferably Canadian) online retailers who have them available for pre-order?

  2. I'm in the same boat as Obsidian. I'll definitely pick up the X-Men box and probably Deadpool when I get the chance, but none of my regular sources seem to have them.

    1. I know some UK stores are doing international shipping.

  3. I have all of the avengers already but happy to see black panther as an additional mini. I really wish there were some villains available so it wasn't just good guys vs good guys. If they had rules for Thanos ready he could cover the villian roll for both the avenger and gaurdians....in due time I suppose.


    The rule cards are going to be available online, no?

    1. They already are. Check Knight Models webstore, for each character/starter you will find a "Product Datasheet" link.

    2. ^ There.
      Villains will appear at some point. The game has a LOT of life in it yet.

  4. Very excited for this! I have already pre ordered the Avengers and XMen starter and the extra mini's. I was suprised to hear the rulebook was 36 pages. It sounds like it will be fairly robust.

    1. Not seen a printed copy yet but it does contain everything you will need.

  5. Will Spidey and the rest of the models from the SMG get cards for this particular rule set? I know that they will be separate games but it'd be cool to see crossover value.

    1. No news on that yet, but I expect some of the bigger characters will cross to the MU.

  7. So how can Wayland Games already have 35mm models IN STOCK for Doctor Doom, Venom, Loki, Thanos when Knight Games doesn't have them on their website?

    1. They will be old stock from the 'model only' releases.
      All are getting rereleased with rules and lots are getting updated sculpts.

  8. Can anyone tell me how big the spray template is? Id like to make my own, rather than wait a couple weeks to get one from the UK.
