The Sheriff of Babylon is one of the best comic series to have come out in recent years. The series, by Tom King and Mitch Gerads, recently wrapped up and we’ll be getting a second volume, called…
We got some hints as to what we might expect in an interview with King and Gerads that you can read here.
While the details for the DC Universe Miniature Game are scarce we have a good look at some of the Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman miniatures that will be released for the game.
Published by Knight Models, the game looks to use the same system as the Marvel Miniature Game, which means potentially you’ll be able to have Superman and the Hulk duke it out.
We’ll have more information as it’s released.
Wonder. Power. Courage. Wonder Woman comes to theaters June 2, 2017.
While not officially announced, word has gotten out that Knight Models will be expanding their tabletop miniature game line with the DC Universe Miniature Game. A teaser image began floating around the internet a few weeks ago of an ad that features Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman and the game. The ad reportedly is found within the new Suicide Squad game box for the Batman Miniature Game (along with a Harry Potter miniature game).
There were a lot of questions to be answered and it looks like we’re getting some of them with the image that’s hit the web today of Superman and his stats.
The game looks like it’ll be using a similar system as the Marvel Universe Miniature Game which means that you may be able to pit the Justice League against the Avengers, though that’s unconfirmed. That means the game won’t be compatible with the current Batman Miniature Game as the two games will use a different rules system.
Will be bringing you more information as it becomes available, but it looks like this is going to be a lot of fun!
The Lego Batman Movie is out sometime in 2017 and Warner Bros. has slowly been teasing out images from the movie. Will Arnett returns to voice Batman and is joined by Zach Galifianakis as The Joker; Michael Cera as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes as Alfred.
Some new images have been released with one showing off Batman’s impressive Lego vehicle selection… is that a Bat-Pirate Ship!?
WizKids‘ next Dice Masters set, Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool, is out in November and the game publisher has been showing off some of the cards and dice you’ll find within. On their Instagram account, the company has revealed three new common cards for Storm, Multiple Man, and Fantomex which are all a part of the X-Men team affiliation.
Storm: Thunderclap is a two cost BOLT character whose fielding cost for the first two levels is a cheap 0. But, it’s the card’s ability that could be the most interesting. When you field her, you can spin target ? energy in your opponent’s Reserve Pool to a BOLT face. It’s a combo card, it’s just a question of what combo to use it with and with more and more cards requiring you to keep energy in your Reserve Pool for defensive measures, this could be an interesting one.
Multiple Man: Duplicitous Nature is harder to figure out what it does. The card is a 3 MASK and has Underdog that involves doing something with a die from your Used pile when fielded. I could make guesses as to what that is, but it’d only be guesses.
Fantomex: E.V.A. is our final card and I believe that’s a X-Men symbol in its ability (though looks Hydra too) and it says character dice not of that type can’t block Fantomex unless the defending player moves one die from their Prep Area to their bag for each Fantomex character die they declare blockers for. At a cost of four SHIELD to purchase and a relatively cheap fielding cost for the stats, this is an interesting card, especially for drafts.
