Batman Miniature Game Green Arrow (Comic)

Sorry folks been super busy during half term and working away and have been neglecting the blog a little bit. Things have settled down this weekend a bit.

Anyway hobbywise i've done bits and bobs over the past few weeks. I've started my next crew for Batman this time more of hero centred one in the form of a Green Arrow crew. The cool thing with this crew is I can swap out the ket characters and turn it into a Batman or Law themed crew later down the line.

I know very little about Green Arrow background apart from the basics but its something i'm doing some research into.

First up is Green Arrow himself this version is from the comics and is a sidekick in the crew but can also be taken as a boss. I shall probably pick up the TV version (leader) and the recently released Animated series Green Arrow gives your more choice and different play styles. I am not sure what pieces he came in as I got him used and he came assembled. I think most likely both arms and the base certainly are separate. I'm not to fond of the tactical rocks they put on the base of some of these characters. But not sure how I could change them.

The Comic version as I understand it is more a mobile shooter compared to the TV one which is more of a turret type character.





Next up for this crew is Green Arrow's only Sidekick so far (This may change with the new Flash/Arrow expansion being released next month) called Arsenal as he is now called or Speedy as i'm told he was referred to. I have finished him but the photo's aren't great so will retake them and stick them in a post later in the week. Supporting the heroes will be a bunch of normal police officers and they are being painted in a batch so as to try keep the uniforms a similar colour.

  1. Great stuff Simon. I'm a huge fan of Green Arrow from the comic books, especially during his time teamed-up with Green Lantern. I've pre-ordered the new book in the hope it'll somewhat follow the comics and "Knight Models" will release Black Canary (his wife) and Red Arrow (his son) :-)

    1. Cheers Simon, I watch the little DC Showcase on youtube the other day and quite enjoyed it. There already is a Black Canary. I hope they do an alt version for her. Especially as Birds of Prey are one of the teams coming out in the new book.

    To each his own, but I rather like the rubble he's standing on.

  7. Really nice. I find the tactical rock thing difficult to as early on I adopted a uniform 'road' basing style. If I get this one, I may need to get creative.

    1. Thanks Kieron. I think if I had started again I might of built a big rubble pile around it to disguise it a bit more.

  12. I like him Simon. Classic pose and a nice ripe green costume. The rocks... Well, to include such dynamic poses, they have to stick "something" on the bases. Perhaps in future paint them as rubble or masonry?

  13. Very nice use of greens. He wouldn't be out of place as an elf in a fantasy setting too.
