Batman Miniature Game Gotham City Police Sets 1 & 2

These are the henchmen for the Batman, Green Arrow and LAW crews. Pretty much basic cops.  Both these are lovely I really like the style and poses of the cops in these sets. The cops all have different rules O'Connell the tall chap has a Tazer and Agent Ron has a pistol. The other two cops are quite similar with just the odd trait making them slightly different.

The only annoying thing about these two sets is they both contain a minion. A minion is an unnamed character who you can take upto 3 of in a gang. The first set has the bald cop and the second set the female cop is the minion. I just wish would re package them so you could buy the minions in a single pack.










My Green Arrow crew ready for there first game!

  1. Wonderful painting on those cops Simon. That's a cracking blue you've given them, and as always I love your thoughts on their skills and abilities within the "BMG". It does seem a bit odd that you can take three minions but only if you buy one of their characters twice (which makes absolutely no sense)?

  2. Cheers Simon. Yeah you will find similar things amongst the packs. Ivys plants for example you can take multiples of but you only get them in the crew pack so you get an extra Ivy. Two Face is another 2 in the gang set are minions I think.

  3. Superb work, and the crew together looks great. Tat set of 4 gives you a nice foundations to build out 3 crews which is very cool (and more when you presumably pick up Branden eventually!).

    Game on ASAP. :)

  5. Lovely figures, Simon, but Knight Models should rethink their marketing strategy.

  6. Very nicely painted and very versatile figures usable in a few different games.

    1. Thanks Clint. Yeah I hope so as well. It will be interesting what my painting is like going back to 28mm.

  7. Looks great. I've got a soft spot for these four, as they tend to do a lot of the donkey work in my Bat-crew: camping, distracting, drawing fire and arresting. Not sure how much of the latter they'll do in your blood damage dealing Arrow crew.

    I've been making that point about packaging since the game was first released. Makes zero sense.

    1. Thanks Kieron. It will be a whole new learning curve. I've been used to mostly footslogging thugs so far. Will see what happens with GA first outing.

    1. Thanks Stuart, I kind of had to resist doing bold highlights on the trousers and jackets as I wanted it to remain quite dark still.

  12. Nice crew Simon. It looks like my son will be picking up the game at some point so it might be time to start thinking of a crew for myself...

    1. Thanks Finch. Found this a bit more difficult than normal working over a black undercoat is not something I have done for a long time.
