After weeks of teasing Knight Models has opened up the pre-order for their first game box for the Batman Miniature Game.

The Suicide Squad Game Box is the first two-player game box for the Batman Miniature Game, containing everything you to fight out vicious street-battles between the Suicide Squad and the Joker’s crew.

Pre-order this box now to get the free Batman (Ben Affleck version), and they even have one last surprise!

There are two versions of the game box! The regular box retails for 99.95 € which is about $112 US (much cheaper than I expected). There’s also a version with an exclusive Harley Quinn Bombshell figure which retails for 109.99 € / about $123.

The company has also revealed the two buildings included (printed on both sides) in the game can be stacked to create a taller building. In total you get 13 figures and character cards, rule book including a special campaign, 2 full-color die-cut card buildings, 4 lamp posts markers, 4 sewer markers, “take the lead” and objective counters and dice.batman-miniature-game-box-set-featured14195922_867128563387463_861287282804533640_o batman_miniature_game_harley_quinn_bombshell_preorder batman_miniature_game_suicide_squad_batman_affleck_preorder

Knight Models Reveals the Batman Miniature Game Suicide Squad Two-Player Game Box

The Suicide Squad: a team of incarcerated super-villains coerced into performing high-risk operations for the US Government in exchange for commuted sentences. Formally known as Task Force X, the squad’s actions are highly classified, and the team itself is highly expendable.

Knight Models has revealed a new deluxe box set is the first two-player game box for the Batman Miniature Game, containing everything you to fight out vicious street-battles between the Suicide Squad and the Joker’s crew.

The new box set features 13 figures and character cards, rule book including a special campaign, 2 full-color die-cut card buildings, 4 lamp posts markers, 4 sewer markers, “take the lead” and objective counters and dice.

This is the first box set for the game. Up to this point, figures have been sold individually and in four-man gangs and the rules have been available in a hard cover book.

A price hasn’t been announced, but I’d expect it to be about $125 to $150. The wording from the announcement also makes it sound like we may see more box sets in the future.

WizKids Shows off Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool, New TMNT, and Iron Man and War Machine

This past weekend was the Alliance Open House and WizKids took advantage to tease what fans of Dice Masters will be seeing over the next months.

In November, Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool will be released. The set will feature such favorites as Deadpool, Lady Deadpool, Dogpool, and Evil Deadpool. It’ll also include some Weapon X related characters such as Wolverine, X-23, the Stepford Cuckoos, and Mr. Sinister.

The set’s super rares will continue the “What If?” theme for Marvel sets featuring the cards below.

Also in the pipeline is new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dice Masters with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dice Masters: Heroes in a Half Shell Box Set. Like the first box set, this one is geared towards two and four players and I’m sure will deliver like the first set. Hopefully we’ll now be able to field a full team of Turtle characters (as of now you can only do seven of the eight needed).

Finally, Marvel Dice Masters: Iron Man and War Machine Starter Set will be released in 2017 and is the first annual starter set and will not be a part of a larger release. It is unknown if the content of the Starter Set will change at all as you needed the larger set to complete all of the dice needed to max out the cards from starters.

The set will feature Iron Man, War Machine, Howard Stark, and Rescue and versions of Iron Man’s armor not yet seen in Dice Masters. You can see below, we’ll be getting a Hulbuster version!

Knight Models Reveals Joker’s Gang for the Batman Miniature Game Box

Knight Models has revealed the second crew that will be a part of the Batman Miniature Game Game Box. The Batman Miniature Game is exactly as it sounds, a miniature game featuring characters not just from Batman, but across the DC Universe. Up to this point, one would purchase their models and gang separately along with a rule book. It sounds like Knight Models will be releasing a box set featuring two gangs, and we’re not quite sure what else right now.

Previously, it was revealed that the first gang was based on the Suicide Squad, the version from the recent movie. The game publisher has now revealed the second, also based on the film the Joker and his gang. What’s interesting is Harley Quinn is shown for both gangs.

Check out a pick of the gang below. We’ll have more updates as the rest of the box contents and price are revealed.

Knight Models Shows Off Suicide Squad for Batman Miniature Game

Knight Models has been teasing out models over the past week for what sounds like a boxed game release for their Batman Miniature Game.

Up to this point, the Batman Miniature Game has been available in a hardcover rulebook and either individual models or gangs featuring four figures. It looks like this “game box” will feature two gangs, the first revealed is the Suicide Squad.

While some of these characters have been available in other versions, this new Suicide Squad gang is based on the movie versions of the characters.

It’s unknown for certainty what the other gang available is or what else will be in the box, but it’s a guess that the Joker’s gang will be the other based on a teaser image of the Panda with a gun from the film. You can see photos of the full gang and some of the individual models below.

DC Comics Dice Masters: Green Arrow & The Flash Out Now. Here’s the Set List!

dc-comics-dice-masters-green-arrow-and-the-flash-2The latest Dice Masters set from WizKids has come to shelves. DC Comics Dice Masters: Green Arrow and The Flash is available now and focuses on the world of the two characters (with a few surprises).

Showcasing Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Green Arrow, Felicity Smoak, and a host of other heroes never before seen in Dice Masters, this is a cannot-miss set! If you prefer the villainous characters, Gorilla Grodd, Merlyn, Clayface, and Giganta won’t disappoint you! For more information about future releases like this one, maybe you could even consult Rip Hunter’s Chalkboard!

Plus, this is the first set to feature foil cards of every character!

Saying this is a “cannot-miss set” isn’t an understatement as there are numerous cards that will absolutely make it into tournament play and have a chance of shaking of the meta scene. I’ll have my full thoughts on the set in the coming week.

For now, here’s a list of the full set card names and rarity.

Burke’s Gambit – Coming Soon from WizKids!

Burke's Gambit 2WizKids has announced the upcoming release of Burke’s Gambit. Designed by Rob Yates, Burke’s Gambit is a game of bluffing and social deduction, and will release in stores this December.

Players will be speeding through space on Burke’s Gambit, a rugged company freighter on an extremely important mission. Your crew has been tasked with finding powerful alien technology, but what you find instead is something unexpected… a dangerous parasitic organism somehow made its way into the ship and inside the body of one of your crew members.

Join the crew of Burke’s Gambit on a wild space adventure with hidden affiliations and a hidden (even to themselves!) infected player. Split into two teams and take on the roles of Captain, Marine, Comms Officer and more in an effort to discover each crew member’s hidden agenda and who has been infected.

Let paranoia run rampant in this thriller, great for large groups of 4-8 players! Using only your dice and your wits, you must discover the truth before enough engine power-ups are rolled and the ship reaches Earth, where a vote must be made. Choose the wrong player to be spaced and your team (or even the entire planet) will lose!
