Knight Models have now shown off the rosters for both the X-Men and the Avengers who will be leading the way as part of the Marvel Miniatures Game which should be coming out later this year. I’d warrant we keep an eye on the release date of Captain America: Civil War perhaps (or maybe just the end of February)?
First off we have the Avengers who come with Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and Black Widow. I can understand why they didn’t drop Hulk into this set as not only is he a rather massive model but I could imagine him working as a one person wrecking machine.
Next up we also have the X-Men Starter Set which contains…
…Rogue, Cyclops, Wolverine and Colossus. This is a really neat set and I like the choice of heroes here. Even though I would probably HAVE to go for the Avengers just to have Thor on my side it’s hard to pass up Wolverine, Colossus and Rogue (I’m not such a fan of Cyclops as a character…).
This is looking like it could be an exciting game to dip your toe into if the sets are reasonably priced. The fact that they come with their own mini-rulebook and such means that you can just grab two of these and get playing. A good move from Knight Models.
Which team will you go for?
