Titan Tournament Bane Crew


Been a MEH week this week, Both kids in and out of school being ill, burst water pipe in the kitchen MEH! Despite not getting much hobby stuff done I Did get a great game of Batman in Monday night at Pulp Citizen's .Getting a bit more familiar with my Bane Crew i'm taking to the Tournament this Saturday. We forgot a few things still so have made a sheet of all my characters abilities so I can just take a glance during play and hopefully use them a bit more to there full potential

Crew composition is currently looking at being the following 

Origin Bane 93 rep
Deadshot 76 rep $300
Venom Soldier 57 rep
Dallas 35 rep $600 + Ammo $200
Ted Hunter 31 rep $250
Mohawk  30 rep + Titan Dose $100
McGregor 27 rep

For a total of 349 rep and $1450

L-R Deadshot, McGregor, Mohawk, Bane, Venom Soldier, Dallas, Ted Hunter

I tried Night visions goggles on Dallas on Monday's game and though nice I still spent two turns legging it to an ammo objective to get a final shot at the end of the game. So going to try in the game tomorrow night extra ammo just to see if  I can live without the NVG's are really needed plus some strategies can give me extra lamposts so another thing to consider.

Bane was much better and knocked down a couple of henchmen. I need to pair him with some one who can do blood damage though and finish off those he puts down. Venom Soldier was pretty good as well need to pair him with Bane more still and remember some of his abilities like Hardened (turns first blood each round into a stun).

Deadshot was great and simple to use, Mohawk did pretty well against Strix with his Ice Axe combined with a Titan Dose boosting his attacks upto 6 doing 1 blood each managing to mortally wound Strix allowing Deadshot to gun her down after she sliced down Mohawk. Ted was nice missing his first few shots but shooting down Cobb in the back and KOing him in the final turn managed to leg it into the enemies deployment zone and jumping onto an ammo counter snagging some much needed extra VPS.

Another possibility may be to drop Ted and take Smash instead. This would do two things give some one to follow Bane and Venom finishing off those they KO and would also free up $300 funding allowing cash for NVG's or a batclaw.

Lots to think about still!

Playing against a Poison Ivy crew which will have some guns in and plays different with there static plants. I'll also be facing Hush and Deadshot so should be a different game style to play against tomorrow night.

As promised a shot of the lamposts from the TT Combat City Scenics Street Accessories set. Sadly not had time to work on the 6 barricades that come with set but maybe I can get them done this week. At the moment i've started the League of Shadows mainly priming and the flesh has been done. Not sure how I want the ninjas to look yet whether to go for a blueish hue or maybe even greenish tone to the black.


Talking of Green very tempted to start working on my Green Arrow crew as well. I spent last night basing Green Arrow and Arsenal and filled in a some gaps on them both as wellas Black Canary and they are ready for painting.

    1. Thanks mate, indecision over the colour scheme has made me stall with the league for now so hoping to work on my Arrow crew to at least do something and then hopefully return to them.

  4. No grapple for Mohawk? That's my favorite thing to give him. Even Batman should be afraid of those two ice axes...

    1. No I prefer giving him a dose of titan tbh plus I lose the funding for ammo or nvgs for Dallas which better value imo. In most my games played so far not many people go up on the roof's. That might be because of the crews i've been facing but we'll see.

  5. Lamp posts look very good and believable.

    Good luck with the Bane crew, they certainly look like they should be able to deal out the pain.

  9. Gah, who'd be a minion in such a crew? If the points values are anything to go by then they shouldn't expect to live for long...
