Batman Miniature Game Rick Flag

Just returned from a lovely Easter weekend and the rest of the following week as we sauntered off to lovely Devon for a break with family. Weather was kind and it flew by and ended to soon!

I had hope to return home to this figure arriving in the post but sadly its been delayed. Fortunately as I wanted him for a Tournament on the 28th Pulp Citizen has come to the rescue and loaned me his Rick Flag so I can get it painted and will replace it when mine eventually comes.

Rick Flag Is a Sidekick in a Law crew . But in the movie he is commander of the Suicide Squad and in love with Enchantress one of the members (no further spoilers).

In game terms he can be included in the Squad as he is listed amongst its members and can be the Boss. The Suicide Squad have some cool rules like Suicide Mission meaning they have to score a number of VPS each turn or risk a random member being blown up. The Leader/Boss is always exempt from this rule however as are a few members who have the Volunteer rule like Flag and Katana they can still be put in the pot for selection but nothing happens if you they get selected.




  
My current planned list I am taking to the Tournament is pictured above. Harley is a sidekick and can also be the boss. This means she can't be blown up, Rick Flag and Katana are volunteers so can't be blown up either if randomly selected. I am hoping not to lose to badly that it comes to this!

Harley her self is highly mobile and has some nice buffs like Confusion which weakens opponents and prevent them from using some traits that require Special Counters to be used. Harley also has her bat and a nice ranged attack with her pistol.

Captain Boomerang is there to generate VP's with hit Primary Target loot then go sit on my opponent's objectives lobbing boomerangs at any who come near.

Rick Flagg is to advance and pick off henchmen with his guns and hopefully get into a position to use his multifire rule boosting his rate of fire if he doesn't move.

Deadshot is also there to provide some more long ranged shooting mowing down henchmen. His Bullet Time attack which allows him to move and shoot with two ranged weapons will be used to blow a chunk in my opponents crew. Or in concert with Harley's Confusion (lowers def/att) to try and take down tougher higher defense targets.

Katana is there to fill out the crew and pick off weakened henchmen and protect Harley a little.


All my Movie themed Suicide Squad members. I just hope Knight models release Amanda Waller and some Special Forces to accompany Rick Flag.

  11. Looks good. Make sure you have a plan to get some VPs early on: using Deadshot's scope to kill a cheap henchman or using strategies to ensure Boomerang gets to his Loot quickly.

    Once you get over that first hurdle, the head exploding shouldn't be a problem.
