Weekly Chronicle #20 2019

It was a pretty buy weekend for me and unfortunately I was not able to get any models completed this weekend nor prep any for the upcoming week.  I had a friend drive up from Indiana (originally we met while living in Arizona) Friday night and stay with us the entire weekend to get some gaming in with me and my son.  I was able to get in a game of Guild Ball Saturday morning followed by some Team practice of Batman Miniature Game on Sunday.

Batman vs Penguin on Saturday night.

Modeling wise last week I did get quite a bit accomplishment, a lot of it was terrain was BMG.  3 models were complete and 5 buildings for BMG.

This week may be a bit rough on the modeling front (I may be able to get one model completed).  Friday morning we will be leaving for MuseOn Con for the weekend, so my gaming will be happening at the Con.  We are planning on a 250 Rep BMG tournament on Friday evening, then Guild Ball on Saturday and finally on Sunday a 200 Rep per player BMG Team Tournament.

Models Completed: 3
Games Played: 2

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Urban Building"

This is the last of the Plast Craft Games buildings that I recently ordered for the Batman Miniature Game.  With the existing 4Ground buildings we have and now these Plast Craft Buildings, our BMG table is starting to look more like a city.

The final building "Urban Building" is from the Urban line of buildings.  Just like with the "City Building" I posted yesterday, the fire escape on the building is just a bit too narrow for a model to fit on, but we'll make do.

We have a game lined up this weekend and we shall see what the table will look like, I think all that is missing is just some more urban obstacles, like dumpsters and barricades and such.

No the problem is having to store all this 3D terrain.

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Sanitarium"

Another building from the Malifaux line by Plast Craft Games is the "Sanitarium" or in my case it will be used as "Arkham Asylum".  As with the "Old Town Building" from earlier today, the "Sanitarium" has platforms big enough to hold models from the Batman Miniature Game.

I have been really enjoying building these buildings from Plast Craft Games and have been very happy with how they assemble and look.  They are a lot easier to put together than the MDF terrain from 4 Ground and I think the detail is still high quality.  As with both companies, the huge plus for me is that they come pre painted.

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Old Town Building"

I have 2 more buildings that were completed for the Batman Miniature Game and both will be posted today.  This building is once again from Plast Craft Games, but instead of the Urban line like the previous 2 buildings, this building is from their Malifaux line of buildings, similar to my "Circus Set".

The nice thing about the Malifaux line is that the model bases for Malifaux are similar to BMG so the buildings are more geared towards that size and as you can tell in the below picture, the back deck will be able to hold a model.

Up first is the "Old Town Building".

BMG: Killer Croc (Waylon Jones)

Another member of the Suicide Squad was completed this week (and the last model for the Squad that was prepped for painting) is 'Killer Croc'.  I have no near future plans of using this model, I just thought he would be a fairly quick and easy model to paint and get completed.

BMG: Plast Craft Games "City Building"

A second post today since it has been a pretty busy week with models and buildings.

To go along with the Urban "Court House" I posted yesterday, today is another building from the Urban line of Plast Craft Games and it is a "City Building".  One change I made to this building (and it is a small one), the front fences are suppose to be glued to building, I left them unattached.  Depending on where we place the building on our gaming mat, I did not want the fences to end up in the middle of the street.  Then the one slight disappointment in the kit is that the back fire escape is just a bit too narrow for one of the models to stand on the platform, it can still fit up there but on the railing of the fire escape and we may play it like that here at home.

BMG: June 1st 2019 Pre-Orders

Knight Models just released their next wave of pre-orders for the Batman Miniature Game which should be available on June 1st 2019.

First is a new Bat-Box for the 'Teen Titans', next is a 6 model box with 'Joker' (Jared Leto) and 'Crew', followed by a single model of the 'Bronze Tiger'.

Not sure if I will do a pre-order from Knight Models (I am still waiting for my last order), but I think when these arrive in the US stores, the 'Teen Titans' and 'Joker' may be seeing there way home.




BMG: Deadshot (Floyd Lawton)

I have been working on a few models and a few buildings at the same time, so the first post for today will be another Batman Miniature Game model with 'Deadshot' from the Suicide Squad box.

'Deadshot' also nicknamed 'Willshot' (Will Smith's from the movie) is a great model to have if you like to shoot in the game, and boy do I like to shoot, more than likely this model will be seeing a lot of playing time in game that I play of 350 Rep.

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Court House"

Just to change it up a bit from posting another model, today will be another piece of terrain for the Batman Miniature Game.  I really like the way my "Circus Set" came out from Plast Craft Games that I went ahead and ordered a few more of their actual buildings.  Miniature Market was having a sale last week on Malifaux items, and Plast Craft Games make a line of buildings for Malifaux so these were included in their sale.  I went ahead and ordered 2 of their Malifaux buildings and 3 of their buildings from their Urban line.

My buildings arrived yesterday afternoon and I had to get started on one of them (maybe 2) so that way I can have a few more ready for this weekend's gaming.

Technically on Plast Craft Games this building is labeled as a Post Office, but here in Gotham City it will be our Court House.

BMG: Captain Boomerang (George Harkness)

Since playing 2 games of Batman Miniature Game this past weekend for MuseOn Con practice, afterwards I was second guessing one of my models in my crew ('Tet') since I really did not do to much with his Flamethrower, although against 'Joker' or 'Penguin' crews it may come in handy.

If I remove 'Tet' and the additional 12 Rep I had left over, I could fit in 'Captain Boomerang' from the Suicide Squad who can work for 'Two-Face' as a Free Agent.  So yesterday I quickly assembled the model and threw it on my painting table and he was quickly completed.  I am hoping to give him a try this weekend (if time allows) to see how he does compared to 'Tet'.
