Knight Models – Batman Crews!

I’ve painted a fair bit for the forces of good in the Batman Miniature Game now and wanted to show off some of the Crews I have put together.

First up the Bat Family…

Bat-Family

and the GCPD…

Gotham-Cops-GroupThese two aren’t crews in their own rights, although the GCPD group could be. The plan was to make up a couple of crews from these two pools. Her’s what I came up with…

Crew-1

The first is a nice and simple Batman & Robin based crew, with as much GCPD back up as I could fit in and, because I adore the mini, Alfred is there to keep an eye on master Bruce.

The second crew I put together looks like this…

Crew-2

This one is based around the Robins; Nightwing, Red Hood and, well, Robin with some GCPD back up and again Alfred keeping an eye on things.

Both of these are standard tournament sized crews (350rep) as I like to make sure that’s what I’ve got to play with once I eventually get to playing the game. Although the first few times will be with a little bit less than this.

Knight Models – Commissioner Gordon & GCPD SWAT

Gordon-&-Swat

More reinforcements for the Batman and his allies are ready to take control of the streets of Gotham.

I got these guys as they were the only other henchman for my Bat forces that I did not have (until Knight Models announced next months releases :(), and they looked like good fun to paint up. They are some great sculpts, with minimal mold lines but did have a fair amount of gaps when putting these together. Gordon especially had some fairly noticeable gaps where his arms join at the elbow. But a wee touch of greenstuff and they were ready to go :).

Here’s the SWAT…

Swat-1 Swat-2

These were pretty simple, just because there is not a lot of variation in colours and no major detailing. I went with a colour scheme very close to the studio job, as it kept them looking tactical as well as linking well with the police I had already done.

Commissioner Gordon I wanted to do a little closer to the comics and the Animated Series versions, rather than the movie version…

Gordon-1 Gordon-2

I’m really pleased with how he turned out, a lot better than I expected to be honest. I wasn’t sure I would really use him in game but I like the mini so much I think I’ll have to squeeze him in once or twice 🙂

Next up is my Red Hood Joker and Alfred exclusive minis 😀
