Battle Report: BMG 6/29/2019 (Batman vs League of Assassins)

Wow, it has been 3 weeks since my last game of Batman Miniature Game, but yesterday afternoon my son and I were able to get in a game, and it was Magical.  It was the first time either of us were going to play with Crews that had a Character that could do Magic.  My son was playing 'John Constantine' in his Brave and the Bold list, and I was trying 'Damien Darhk' in my League of Assassins list.

For myself, it was also the first time trying 'The Wizard' and 'The Heretic', so it was going to be a learning game for me.

As we always do, we randomly rolled for our Scenario and this time rolled "The Trophy".

Table ready for deployments.

This game started off really bad for my League of Assassins, with losing my Leader, 'The Wizard' and the top of Turn 2, I moved him in the wrong direction during Turn 1 (so I can see what he can do with his shooting) and left him exposed to the Magic of 'John Constantine'.  2 Turns of Magic easily put down my Leader.  The original plan was to stay next to 'Hasssasin 1' who had a 'Rare Nth Medallion', but as stated above, I wanted to see how good he can shoot his Bow and Arrow.

After losing 'The Wizard', it was going to be a tough uphill battle, luckily I was able to score points of Objectives the first two Turns to keep in the game.

This game stayed close all the way to the end and I managed to still have 3 players on the board all scoring Objectives for me.  The game ended in a true Tie, LOA (45), BatB (48).

Not sure how I like playing with Magic yet, the times I tried it my dice rolls were so bad, I think next time I need some more Henchman going for the Objectives while I have my strong players take out my Opponents.

BMG: Bane (Rebirth) [Bane]

I have been falling behind a bit on my painting compared to two weeks ago, but I did manage to paint the big guy himself, 'Bane' (Rebirth) from the "Bane: Venom Overdrive" Bat-Box.

I still have two more Henchman from this Bat-Box that needs to be prepped and primed, and honestly I am not sure when I will get to them.  Maybe I can do some painting tomorrow morning if it plans on raining.

BMG: Support Op (Dolph Wolf) [Bane]

A third Henchman is now completed from the "Bane: Venom Overdrive" Bat-Box, and today we have 'Support Op' (Dolph Wolf).

I have not had time yet to prep the remaining 2 Henchman, hopefully tonight I can get them primed and ready for the painting table.

Weekly Chronicle 2019 #25

Week #25 for 2019 was a so-so week for  me.  For painting, I was able to get 4 models posted for the Batman Miniature Game with just a couple ready for this week (I did fall a little behind this week).

In gaming news, only one game was played this Friday night, X-Wing (no Battle Report).  I thought since we are playing X-Wing at this years NOVA Open at the end of August, we still need to get a few more games of practice in (so I can work out what list I want to play there).  I am hoping this week for another game of X-Wing, and then maybe Saturday afternoon get in another game of Batman Miniature Game.

This week is the last week for the second Quarter of 2019 (and the second Quarter was really good this year), let see how many more models I can squeeze in before the week is over.

BMG: Stealth Op (Kabuto) [Bane]

There are five Henchman in the "Bane: Venom Overdrive" Bat-Box and up second of what has been completed is 'Stealth Op' (Kabuto).  He is one I can see being used quite frequently with his double Blood Katana, Undercover and Stealth.

BMG: Black Flash [Unknown]

My son likes to occasionally play 'Flash', and when using the Speed Force there is a chance that you have to roll 2D6 on the Paradox Table, one of the results on the Paradox Table (12) is "Black Flash Appears".  If 'Black Flash' appears, the model is placed on a board page and is controlled by your opponent for the rest of the game.

Just in case the 'Black Flash' appears, my son went out and got the model that represents him.

BMG: Red Hood (Arkham Knight) [BatB]

It's time to start posting some more models for the week that are completed.  Up first is a model that my son and I got from the MuseOn Con prize table back at the end of May.  He was available, he looked cool, and we still needed him for our collection, 'Red Hood' (Arkham Knight) (Jason Todd).

Weekly Chronicle 2019 #24

What a week Week #24 was for painting/modeling, but not so much for gaming.  Last week I had completed 14 models for Batman Miniature Game and they were all for my League of Assassins Crew, and I was able to prep some models for this coming week.

The weekend was really slow for me with a few chores and Sunday spending the day out for Father's Day.  On Saturday afternoon we missed out on playing some BMG and ended up taking an afternoon nap (that actually felt pretty good).  BMG games can take a long while to play (a lot of time is spent on the setup) so evenings are tough and weekends usually work out better (when they do not interfere with other weekend items).  This coming weekend may also be difficult to game, so we will have to see where we can squeeze something in.

We'll just have to see how it goes.

BMG: Muse on Minis '"Mean Street Light Posts and Sewers"

Since why playing Batman Miniature Game at home, we decided to try and use 3D terrain as much as possible.  In our last game we switched back to using 3D Objectives, and then the other day I thought about the "Mean Street Light Posts and Sewers" from Muse on Minis and thought those would also be a nice addition for the house.  We have 2D tokens to represent Light Posts and Sewers (which is great for traveling to events) so these new ones from Muse on Minis will just stay at home so they do not break.

My package arrived yesterday afternoon and I quickly assembled/glue them to have them ready for th weekend.

BMG: Ra's Al Ghul (Rebirth) [LoA]

Wrapping up the League of Assassins with this post ('Goliath' still need sto be completed at a later date) is their main Leader and founder of the League, 'Ras Al Ghul' (Rebirth), along with his Objective, the 'Lazarus Pit'.

It feels great to have all of the League fully painted and it gives me plenty of options to build different crews.  As of now, the League of Assassins will be my main crew until I can get some of my Joker crew models completed and then I will be switching between the two.

BMG: The Wizard (Malcolm Merlyn) [LoA]

Today is the last day for my League of Assassins models (for now), and it is the day of the Leaders.

Up first is 'The Wizard' (Malcolm Merlyn), and just like with 'The Heretic' yesterday, I am really satisfied how this model turned out.

Daily Chronicle: Cults In Gotham

This morning Knight Models released some new models for the Batman Miniature Game, and they just are not any new models, but a whole new Crew design called Cults.

"In game terms, a Cult is the same as a Crew, but is composed differently.  In addition, Cults use a new resource called 'Faith'."

To download the new Cult rules, along with the rules for the new Kobra Cult, you can get them by visiting the Knight Models Downloads page.

Here is a look at the new models for the Kobra Cult.
