Batman Miniature Game Hawkman

Hawkman is another miniature I finished at the same time as AC Batman (Previous post). I had intended to attend the Animosity tournament with a new Birds of Prey list of Batgirl, Katana and both Hawk man and Hawk Girl. Only getting distracted by some of the new Suicide boxed set models changing my Crew preference at the last minute. Another wonderful mini easy to assemble. I had to way down the base as the wings make him a bit top heavy. I think he should've had the Large trait and been put on a 40mm base personally.  The recent FAQ Knight models have released have introduced changes to the Birds of Prey Team in a tournament setting. Whoever you choose as boss gains +1 Willpower, Reinforced Gloves (double stun damage) and the Leadership trait. Which is a nice touch as there girls leaders are quite soft and squishy really.  I think it should be added to the team rules permanently rather just at tournaments. It gives a nice boost to Black Canary and Batgirl if they are in charge.

The Hawks special fly high rule has taken a blow in the latest FAQ as well they have introduced a new trait called 'unnatural flight' which means when the return they can no longer use there basic move distance on the return to the table. Meaning they can't strike then fly off in the same turn. Will have to rethink the strategy with them both now.

  3. Nice brushwork on the wings mate, yeah it looks like it could be very unstable due to the weight of them!

    1. Thanks dude. Its not bad really. I've still added some spare bits of metal tags to the underside of the base just in case.

  4. Great stuff Simon on a model that looks very top-heavy. What did you use to weigh Hawkman down? Lead shot?

    1. Thanks Simon, Just some spare bits of old tags/sprue. Its pretty well balanced tbh. Probably more in danger of being dropped or knocked over by clumsiness.

  8. Lovely work, you should be chuffed with him. :)

    The Unnatural Flight nerf was a blow, especially as Cyborg and Starfire are similarly good in close combat but don't have it.

    1. Thanks buddy. Yeah I will just have to relearn how I use them and yes I feel they should also get this trait as well.

  12. Taking out isolated characters is what they're for now. Specifically snipers. They can also grab unguarded objectives and simply threaten all over the place.

    Don't fly high unless there is a definite target you want to get to early. Save it for later shenanigans.

    Looks ace dude.

    1. Thanks Kieron yes I would have to agree. I think if I was using him with Hawk Girl then i'd have a crack at small clumps of henchmen.
