Batman Miniature Game Batwoman

The First Sidekick for my Law Forces crew finished (and of course she can be in a batman crew as well) Law Forces lists when being built tend to get very large numbers wise very quickly as they don't have many hard hitting models. They tend to have lots of firearms so the funding gets eaten up quickly leaving you to take lots of the Cheap Cops Gotham Policeman/Woman which you can take upto 3 of each.

Batwoman comes in at 95 rep so takes up a good chunk of reputation. Batwoman is a decent fighter, has a batclaw and has medium ranged remote control batarangs and night vision meaning they can used at there full range and ignore pings in there path. Batwoman is also has Searcher a trait you rarely see reducing your opponents strategy points by 1.

Batwoman also has the Criminology trait cancelling the runaway trait when within 30cm (Can't be arrested) so very useful for your cops arresting KO models. Especially hard hitting ones like Dark Knight Rises Bane.

I really enjoyed painting this model but as an older sculpt came in odd pieces. Namely a separate head and lower right leg...... Which annoyingly with how much the cape overhangs the base had to be pinned. I am hoping she survives gaming use and will be stored carefully. I have add some weight to the front to try and compensate for the cape.

I also had a disaster with the base coated model dropping the box I store them in breaking off the head and chipping the paint! I am glad she if finished as I really like the sculpt and look forward to using her on the table.

  2. Never seen Batwoman in that scheme before - I like!

    Sounds like a bloody fiddly mini to put together though - who designs these things??? Separate head indeed....

    1. Thanks Dai. Yeah some of the old ones have odd cuts. This is based on the recent comics I believe.

  7. Personally I would rather have Batwoman in my roster than Batman. No idea about the rules at all and that may be a very bad choice but such a splendid figure.

    1. Thanks Clint. They all have plus and minuses or different roles within the the game. Some are more thematic than others.
