Some notes from the tournament I went to yesterday:

1) I played against a Green Arrow crew and they were an effective, if small, force. With Arrow, Speedy, Canary and Huntress, there was still room for a Policeman.

2) The Watchmen player won the event and was a bit embarrassed at how good they were.

3) I found that a crew led by a sidekick such as Harley Quinn or, let's say, Commissioner Gordon, are more than capable of tackling the big hitters.

4) I now know the rules.

5) I can do crews for Batman, Joker, the League of Shadows, Two-Face, Penguin and possibly Poison Ivy, so there's plenty of variety involved.

6) The game gets much easier, the more you play it.

7) You could join me on my tournament outings once you know the rules well, and win free stuff!

Isn't it weird having the watchmen in a batman game?

You're arguing weird in the comic book world?!

I don't know. I'll tell you after Pete's bought them.

But it's only as weird as having the characters from the computer game fighting folk from the movies. Or the Russians fighting the Americans in WW2. Or Normans fighting Vikings in Saga.

Once you get the hang of it, it's a really good game.

New Arrow models and rules released...

Could use him as a TV Roy.

Bumping this, I've had to try SO hard not to buy a zillion models for this game already! I'm with Pete on the "£30 for a rulebook?!" though :/

Also, morning everyone!

Actually, it's £35....

Morning Screech!

I hope there's a .Pdf/.mobi kicking around soon then!
I looked at the free download one, and it seems easy enough. Very heavy on counters though...

You don't need to use any on table counters, they're really just memory aids. The counters on the cards are basically anything you want.

Apparently there's not going to be many changes between the free pdf and the rulebook. You don't need to buy it (I'll have it), I just want to play the game... Sad

Can you build a decent Suicide Squad? That's the only thing that matters.

Yes.

Arkham Harley
Origins Deathstroke
Deadshot
Copperhead (painted as Joker's Daughter)

It's a 350 rep build and I've no idea if it's any good.

Sold! I'll buy Batman if you'll buy Doctor Who Wink

Erm...okay? As long as you don't mean all of it! Technically, isn't everything Doctor Who depending on the episode?

On a separate note, my rulebook arrived today!

View user profile http://maddogandenglishmen.forumotion.co.uk
Ooh! Much different?

(I'll forgive you if you build a U.N.I.T. force. It'll give my floaty bins some thing to exterminate!)

I'm actually quite tempted by some of the Crooked Dice not-UNIT models.

The rules only seem to have a few differences. Riddles have changed and you can now do blood damage with stun attacks against knocked out models. There are a few new skills that hint at future releases. It's a beautiful book.

My Alfred model is...well...a butler.

That says quite a lot about you as a person.

There's new equipment for each gang too. Oh and Mr Freeze, Scarecrow, Riddler, Mad Hatter, Organised Crime and the Court of Owls will all be getting their own gangs at some point. Plenty of choice for you all...

To stave you off from topping yourself due to us not playing it, despite you hardly ever mentioning the game, I've ordered Ozymandias today...

Going to buy them as I paint them. Hopefully won't take long.

Plus it'll give me time to arrange the op to have a kidney removed so I can afford the rulebook...

All the Watchmen look amazing to paint, bet you can't wait to do Rorschach's face!

To be honest, I really don't think that you absolutely need the rulebook. If you're doing the Watchmen, there's a finite number of the traits that you need to know, as they are limited to the five of them and can't hire anybody else. I can knock you up a cribsheet for them and photocopy the QRS from the book. After a couple of games, you really get the hang of most things.

Also, you've missed out on the per-order bonus figures now, which you could have sold..

When are you next able to play anything Kieron? If you have a suicide squad or something to proxy then I could do with a run through the rules? It might convince me to start painting sooner rather than later... Wink

It'll be after the weekend. I'm definitely available on Tuesday if you're willing to travel over to mine, otherwise I'll need to check.

I can do an approximate Suicide Squad with Deadshot, Harley Quinn and some prisoners. Not all of them will be official models.

View user profile http://maddogandenglishmen.forumotion.co.uk
Tuesdays are out for me permanently I'm afraid. Will there be room at Pete's for a game one week, if he's playing one of the boring WW2 games with Matt/Wes one week? I don't travel well (not a driver, don't mock)

I'm sure there would be. I can bring some terrain (unless you're happy with the Suicide Squad fighting in 1940s France). I'd actually be happy to do a full on demo session if you four want to play. With small crews Pete could be ready for this quite quickly. Wes has his Arrow crew, and Matt has his short GCPD crew.

View user profile http://maddogandenglishmen.forumotion.co.uk
I am blissfully indifferent to terrain, so long as I can get an handle on the mechanics of the game hahaha

And yeah, if you guys are up for it then a four player turf war sounds ace!
