Batman Miniature Game Schoolboy

Been a hectic week had meant to post this last week but never found the time. The wife had a surgery on her leg Monday so have been busy doing all the chores etc the op went well but rest and recovery has been hampered by Mrs Brummie catching the lurgy on top meaning every time she tried to sleep fits of coughing woke her up. On the mend though now so all good.

Anyway on to my post this is my final merc from the Bird and mercenaries booster for the Bane crew. As you can see he is armed with a rocket launcher a weapon only available to 2 or 3 crews now. There is an RPG for Joker crews but they are not quite the same rules wise. 

As per all ranged weapons they have a heavy funding cost weighing in at 33 $500 rep with 2 lots of ammo for his rocket launcher. I'm not sure how much mileage I'd get out of Schoolboy he is not as efficient as an Assault Rifle for damage output but could be useful against swarms with an explosive template and against armoured targets. My main concern is he only gets two shots off and can't move or fire either so if he misses then thats it nothing happens with the shot. I'd struggle to justify his funding in a typical came as you only get $1500 funding and this would be a significant chunk spent.

Interestingly though he has the Soldier of Fortune Trait and is the second with this trait (TNT being the first) If I wish to use more than one character with this trait then I have to include the Sidekick Bird as he is Soldier of Fortune Boss allowing you take more than one. I am hoping we see another one but i'm not sure what they'd be equipped with.

  5. Great paint-job as always, but a fairly bland sculpt; I'm sure they could have made him a little more dynamic.
    Two of these types or character with their boss will make a formidable lineup.
