Marvel Universe Miniature Game - Thanos, Loki, Elektra and Venom

These character cards appeared just before Christmas, however they are subject to change as they have not been officially confirmed by Knight Models yet. Furthermore a Doctor Octopus was also mentioned, however a character card has not yet appeared. Once these cards become official I will add them to the team builder and links.

Update (06/01/17) Thanos' Titan Punch and Cosmic Rain have increased their damage by 1 each. Cosmic Rain's range has been increased from 8 inches to 13 inches. Finally Titan Beam has had the error removed from it's Spray range.

DC Universe Miniature Game - Black Adam and Lex Luthor Warsuit

Knight Models December Releases - The Dynamic Duo, Black Adam, Lex Luthor and More

These are the releases from Knight Models for December. They are available for purchase now from retailers and online.

DC Universe Miniature Game Releases

Black Adam and Lex Luthor Warsuit are the first standalone models for DC Universe Miniatures since the Trinity Box Set release in November. At 16 points, Black Adam is naturally going to be compared to Superman and Hulk and from a brief look over his rules he look more than a match for them.

At 11 points, Lex Luthor Warsuit looks to be a fantastic leader of an Injustice League team.

Batman Miniature Game Releases

Some cool new additions to the Batman Miniature Game this month. Firstly a new Batman and Robin with some great rules for using the two of them together but both could definitely be taken alone.

A new villain sidekick for Black Mask's crew and a lesser known villain from Batman's back catalogue. It is really cool that Knight Models recognise these lesser known heroes and villians.

A nice box set to add to your Law Forces crew, especially if you don't fancy the same old police officers.

A great way of expanding your Mr Freeze crew, finally released in November, without buying the whole box set again.

A really handy kit for determining light and explosion radiuses. It's extra nice that they include a template for 30mm and 40mm bases.

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Beast.
After Ian decided to retire from this blog and the public gaming scene, I had thought about starting my own blog as a resource to all new and existing Superhero Universe and Batman Miniatures gamers.
However the more I thought about it, the more I thought that Tales from a Tabletop Skirmisher was already such a great place it would be a shame to let it gather dust. So I asked Hendybadger if I could continue this blog and very kindly he said Yes!
So I am writing this intro to give you some information on who I am and what I hope to achieve with continuing this blog.

Who Am I?

Most of my friends in the wargaming community know me as Beast so that is the name I will use on this blog. I started my journey into this fantastic hobby when I was 12 with Warhammer 40K and played on and off until around 2 years ago when I got completely hooked by the hobby again and started playing more seriously and much more often.
I currently own a Tau, Ork and Genestealer Cult army for Warhammer 40K, a Skaven and Orge army for Warhammer Age of Sigmar, and I hope to start a World Eaters Horus Heresy army in the near future.
Most importantly for this blog though I play both Good and Evil Avengers for Marvel Universe Miniatures Game and Justice League for the DC Universe Miniatures Game. I have a small Law Forces crew for the Batman Miniatures Game.
Friends of mine will tell you I love to play narrative games but I am not the best at painting. However I do plan to spend a lot more time on my painting this year.

What I Hope To Achieve?

Firstly and most importantly I want to maintain this blog as the number one resource for new and existing players from rulebooks and FAQs to new character cards and releases. Secondly I hope to do written reviews on individual models, teams and tactics. Lastly I hope in the far future to publish video battle reports too.

So let me finish by thanking Hendybadger for this opportunity, welcoming new players of these fantastic games and welcoming back existing players.

So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish!

As many of you know, for the last few years I have been doing all sorts in the gaming community and working with a few great games companies.
Admin, testing, writing, editing and more.

All of this was done in my spare hobby time but as of late it has taken up that and more. A bit too much really.
There have also been issues around like changes I haven't agreed with and even abuse from gamers including a petition and 100 comment thread calling me a "piece of shit" and more.

Seriously? It's games with toy soldiers! Not life and death! Chill Out!

This was then followed by a hack of my personal Facebook which ONLY went in to my FB groups and removed content.

I just want to play games and enjoy my hobby like everyone else. I really don't need all this crap just because I have been doing volunteer work on things I like and following rules put in place.

With all that in mind I have decided to retire from all of this 'public' gaming stuff.
I have left my admin and testing roles and will no linger be writing in magazines or one websites, including this one.
I will be keeping the links in the top bar updated when I can though as a lot of people use them as helpful resources.

Thank you to all of the readers of this blog over the last few years. Its been awesome!
Good luck in everything you do.

For the final time......

Official Batman Game to DC Universe Character Cards

Last week, Knight Models posted up the new DC Universe Game rulebook. That's cool as it is. But something at the back of that book was even better.

24 Batman Mini Game > DCU Character cards!
This means that if you have any of the Batman Games characters, there's a good chance you will have the start of a DCU team, or even a whole team already!

As well as that there is even a Team Card for the Justice League.

You can see all the cards in this post or download them from the DCU Rulebook link in the top bar ^ or the Scribd app at the bottom of the post.

What do you think of all these?
Who will you be running?
