Weekly Chronicle #24 2019

What a week Week #24 was for painting/modeling, but not so much for gaming.  Last week I had completed 14 models for Batman Miniature Game and they were all for my League of Assassins Crew, and I was able to prep some models for this coming week.The weekend was really slow for me with a few chores and Sunday spending the day out for Father's Day.  On Saturday afternoon we missed out on playing some BMG and ended up taking an afternoon nap (that actually felt pretty good).  BMG games can take a long while to play (a lot of time is spent on the setup) so evenings are tough and weekends usually work out better (when they do not interfere with other weekend items).  This coming weekend may also be difficult to game, so we will have to see where we can squeeze something in.We'll just have to see how it goes.Models Completed: 14Games Played: 0

Daily Chronicle: Cults In Gotham

This morning Knight Models released some new models for the Batman Miniature Game, and they just are not any new models, but a whole new Crew design called Cults."In game terms, a Cult is the same as a Crew, but is composed differently.  In addition, Cults use a new resource called 'Faith'."To download the new Cult rules, along with the rules for the new Kobra Cult, you can get them by visiting the Knight Models Downloads page.Here is a look at the new models for the Kobra Cult.

Weekly Chronicle #23 2019

Week #23 for 2019 was a pretty good week painting wise for me.  Unfortunately I only concentrated on Batman Miniature Game, but a lot was completed and a lot more ready to go for this week.I had 8 models completed and much more ready to for this week.  Last week it was a mix of Organized Crime and The Brave and the Bold with completing 8 models, and this coming week will be the week for the League of Assassins where I will more than likely double/triple up on daily posts (it was that good).On the gaming side of things, only 1 game of BMG was played this past Saturday.  I was doing a lot of binge TV with a mix of painting this past week.Model Completed: 8Games Played: 1

Weekly Chronicle #22 2019

It was a about an average week for me, but at least I did get to play a couple of games.  Last Monday on Memorial Day my son and I got to play a full game of Batman Miniature Game, then again this past Saturday we spent the day the getting in another game of BMG.Modeling wise, nothing was completed, but I did manage to assemble all the models that we recently purchased for BMG (roughly around 45) so that way we can at least play with them and see how they do.  I need to start taking some of them and get them ready for priming.  I just need to decide where to start.Upcoming events; nothing is really planned in the near future.  I hear there may be a local Guild Ball tournament in July that I probably will attend, so I will need to get a few games of Guild Ball in this month to keep the game fresh in my mind.  With all the models I have recently purchased for BMG, not sure if my second half of the Farmer's Guild will be done anytime soon, so more than likely I will stick with my Butcher

Daily Chronicle: "Renegade Open 2019" Registration Open

Registration for the Renegade Open went live this morning.  The event will be held in Minneapolis Minnesota November 22nd-24th, and 2019 will be it's 7th year.I have never attended the Renegade Open in the past, so 2019 will be our first year, and my son and I are mainly heading up there for the Batman Miniature Game.  There are not too many conventions that run BMG (AdeptiCon/MuseOn Con/Renegade Open), so we might as well get some games in of BMG when we attend these events.  We'll be busy with Guild Ball in September and October, so November will be a nice change with BMG.The drive for us to Minneapolis about 8-10 hours, so unfortunately Sunday will have to be a travel day home, but with heading up there on Thursday, it will leave Friday and Saturday for gaming.The events we registered for are:Friday: Batman Miniature Game "The Dork Knight II" 250 Rep / $1000 FundingSaturday: Batman Miniature Game: "Nightfall III" 350 Rep / $1500 FundingI think with just two events I should be good for the we

BMG: 4Ground "Shipping Container (A)" Terrain

I had almost forgotten that I had another Shipping Container (A) from 4Ground. sitting on my shelf waiting to be built until I noticed it the other night.  When my son and I were at Spring Fling last month for Guild Ball, I had made a purchase at the host store and it was this container.  Seeing how this month has been the month of Batman Miniature Game terrain building, I thought I'd squeeze in one more for the month.Size comparison: Bottom = 4Ground, Top = Muse on MinisPainting Points: 10** assembly time

Weekly Chronicle #21 2019 (MuseOn Con Recap)

First off, let's start with our normal Weekly Chronicle before moving onto a recap of this past weekend's MuseOn Con.Painting wise, I was actually shocked that I completed 2 models before heading off to the Con, both were for Batman Miniature Game and they were 'Katana' and 'Diablo', which both of them saw table time at the Con.Now we can move onto MuseOn Con.  MuseOn Con is a smaller Con ran by the company MuseOn Minis and it is held in Des Moines, IA.  There was not much advertising for the Con except for on there own Facebook pages, and Podcasts, so I had a feeling and it would not be too large, which I had expected and heard from friends who attended, it is more of an intimate feeling.Originally our plan was to play in BMG Friday night, Guild Ball on Saturday, followed by BMG Duos on Sunday.  Just before we left I asked my son if he wanted to change it a bit and instead of Guild Ball on Saturday, we play the 350 BMG Batmatch event and then just relax on Friday night after driving all day, s

Weekly Chronicle #20 2019

It was a pretty buy weekend for me and unfortunately I was not able to get any models completed this weekend nor prep any for the upcoming week.  I had a friend drive up from Indiana (originally we met while living in Arizona) Friday night and stay with us the entire weekend to get some gaming in with me and my son.  I was able to get in a game of Guild Ball Saturday morning followed by some Team practice of Batman Miniature Game on Sunday.Batman vs Penguin on Saturday night.Batman vs Penguin on Saturday night.Modeling wise last week I did get quite a bit accomplishment, a lot of it was terrain was BMG.  3 models were complete and 5 buildings for BMG.This week may be a bit rough on the modeling front (I may be able to get one model completed).  Friday morning we will be leaving for MuseOn Con for the weekend, so my gaming will be happening at the Con.  We are planning on a 250 Rep BMG tournament on Friday evening, then Guild Ball on Saturday and finally on Sunday a 200 Rep per player

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Urban Building"

This is the last of the Plast Craft Games buildings that I recently ordered for the Batman Miniature Game.  With the existing 4Ground buildings we have and now these Plast Craft Buildings, our BMG table is starting to look more like a city.The final building "Urban Building" is from the Urban line of buildings.  Just like with the "City Building" I posted yesterday, the fire escape on the building is just a bit too narrow for a model to fit on, but we'll make do.We have a game lined up this weekend and we shall see what the table will look like, I think all that is missing is just some more urban obstacles, like dumpsters and barricades and such.No the problem is having to store all this 3D terrain.Painting Points: 10** assembly time

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Sanitarium"

Another building from the Malifaux line by Plast Craft Games is the "Sanitarium" or in my case it will be used as "Arkham Asylum".  As with the "Old Town Building" from earlier today, the "Sanitarium" has platforms big enough to hold models from the Batman Miniature Game.I have been really enjoying building these buildings from Plast Craft Games and have been very happy with how they assemble and look.  They are a lot easier to put together than the MDF terrain from 4 Ground and I think the detail is still high quality.  As with both companies, the huge plus for me is that they come pre painted.Painting Points: 10**assembly time

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Old Town Building"

I have 2 more buildings that were completed for the Batman Miniature Game and both will be posted today.  This building is once again from Plast Craft Games, but instead of the Urban line like the previous 2 buildings, this building is from their Malifaux line of buildings, similar to my "Circus Set".The nice thing about the Malifaux line is that the model bases for Malifaux are similar to BMG so the buildings are more geared towards that size and as you can tell in the below picture, the back deck will be able to hold a model.Up first is the "Old Town Building".Painting Points: 10** assembly time

BMG: Plast Craft Games "City Building"

A second post today since it has been a pretty busy week with models and buildings.To go along with the Urban "Court House" I posted yesterday, today is another building from the Urban line of Plast Craft Games and it is a "City Building".  One change I made to this building (and it is a small one), the front fences are suppose to be glued to building, I left them unattached.  Depending on where we place the building on our gaming mat, I did not want the fences to end up in the middle of the street.  Then the one slight disappointment in the kit is that the back fire escape is just a bit too narrow for one of the models to stand on the platform, it can still fit up there but on the railing of the fire escape and we may play it like that here at home.Painting Points: 10** assembly time

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Court House"

Just to change it up a bit from posting another model, today will be another piece of terrain for the Batman Miniature Game.  I really like the way my "Circus Set" came out from Plast Craft Games that I went ahead and ordered a few more of their actual buildings.  Miniature Market was having a sale last week on Malifaux items, and Plast Craft Games make a line of buildings for Malifaux so these were included in their sale.  I went ahead and ordered 2 of their Malifaux buildings and 3 of their buildings from their Urban line.My buildings arrived yesterday afternoon and I had to get started on one of them (maybe 2) so that way I can have a few more ready for this weekend's gaming.Technically on Plast Craft Games this building is labeled as a Post Office, but here in Gotham City it will be our Court House.Painting Points: 10** assembly time

Weekly Chronicle #19 2019

I am pretty happy with the week I had for Week #19 of 2019.  I was able to get some models completed, and still get a few games in over the weekend.First up is the models completed for the week.  Shockingly I was able to finish my entire Cook's Minor Guild for Guild Ball (besides the 2 Limited Edition models).  My goal was to originally just finish 'Cinnamon' and 'Roast' so they can be played with my Butcher's Guild, but I just kept on going and finished the remaining 4 models to complete the box of 6.  By doing so though meant I did not paint any models for Batman Miniature Game.Friday night I took the evening to finish up on my Circus Themed table for BMG needing only to complete the Big Top Stage and Circus Wagons, now that table completed and ready for gaming.The the weekend came and it was time to get a few games in (mixed in with some chores).  First up on Saturday was a game of X-Wing and playing my Millennium Falcon list up against 4 T-65 X-Wings, it was the first loss for tha

BMG: Plast Craft Games "Circus Set"

A couple of weeks ago when I started purchasing some 'Joker' models for the Batman Miniature Game, I thought to myself how cool it would be to play on a circus themed tabled.  I then remembered from AdeptiCon 2018 while watching some of the Malifaux gaming, such terrain does exist.Plast Craft Games had teamed up with Wyrd Games (makers of Malifaux) to released some licensed terrain, and one of the sets they released was the circus.  I then visited the Plast Craft Games website to see what all was available for the circus, and there was quite a few different items including a "Big Top Stage" which was a must needed item, heck, actually all of it was needed.  Between Miniature Market and Amazon, I was able to order everything I wanted.  Amazon deliveries were quick, but with Miniature Market I had to wait a bit for it to arrive, and then one day the circus came into town.There is a lot of assembly needed for all of this and my usual super glue worked great.  The material is some sort of
