So, there is an actual physical rulebook coming out and it is amazing!! The new 2nd ed rules will still be available online once the book is out, which is any day now. For anyone who attempted to read any of the previous English editions, this one is the real deal, written by Mark Latham of White Dwarf fame it is truly an impressive rulebook.

The game itself is more cinematic than most games I have played (and that is a lot) all the characters special abilities are very much in tune with what they are in either the comics, movies, tv shows or video game. The game is alternative activations and scenario driven. There are several objective pieces that are interactive, such as Titan.

Most games run at 350Rep (the games term for points) and elite characters such as Batman run at around Rep, while a Police Officer may be 20Rep.

and the minis.......some of the best minis around IMO, but they are created from the same Spanish gene-pool as Infinity models, so what else would one expect. The main catalogue of models are from the Arkham video games, Nolan Movies and Arrow TV show with other characters appearing all the time with monthly new releases.


some previews from the new book:

I managed to visit the Knight Models studio last week so I will be posted more in this Blog-like thread as I assemble and paint my new Arrow gang.

I think the weeks before is Easter and the week after is Anzac weekend. So it seems like a nice fit.

I confess it has renewed my interest (to the point I'm annoyed I sold off all my models before!!!)

So what factions are people going for in Perth? I think I'm hearing:
- Joker
- Arrow

What else?

I do have some questions about the book. Does it give info on all the current figure?

Does it cover all the rules (I downloaded the free pdf and all the cards. It looks like Red Hood has a trait called "Agile" but I can't find it anywhere in the .pdf. Same goes for his weapons having Firearm trait - couldn't find anything special about Fire-arms anywhere).

Also how does it deal with multi-faction Leaders (Red Hood again - he's affiliated with Batman but also Organized crime. Does that mean he cannot have anyone who hates Batman in his band?)

Some clarity on this would be awesome.

There is an online gang-builder = http://bat-builder.com/ it's pretty great
Fire-arms inflict damage on a 2+When used
Agile when this character takes damage from falling, make an agility roll, if successful ignore the damage and the knock down effect
