August 1, 2019 by brennon

Atomic Mass Games were hosted by Fantasy Flight last night to reveal something else with a Marvel spin. Marvel Crisis Protocol is a new miniatures game coming to the market soon and it's packed with some cool looking heroes and villains.

The game will feature a core set which features some famous heroes like Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Widow and Captain Marvel against nefarious foes like Ultron, Red Skull and Doctor Octavius as you can see here. Future 'packs' will come with larger than life heroes and villains like Hulk and M.O.D.O.K.

A Youtuber by the name of Crabbok got a first look at the game in the video below, shown off on a stylish board made for Gen Con. Check it out.

It looks like it is going to be quick and fun to play with a good balance between powerful heroes like Hulk and those with a little more mortality to worry about like Black Widow. Atomic Mass Games also talked more about the game in the In-Flight Report starting at around 1hour!

I did call that we needed a big miniatures game based on the Marvel licence. It will be interesting to see just how freeform this game is going to be. We do know that the game is set on 3x3 tables so it's close and brutal right away. Additionally, terrain is going to be key to your games. It wouldn't be Hulk without the chance for him to throw cars and rip pillars down to whack his foes.

The game will focus in on players being able to freely bring together both villains and heroes and then clash with your friends.

As well as being focused in a clash between you and your friends you will also be able to embrace some cool game modes like raids where you and another player take on a big boss controlled by someone else. There will also be a narrative campaign set which allows you to follow a story with a set team of heroes.

All of the miniatures are going to be multi-part plastics so there will be plenty of hobby involved in bringing this to life. They do look exceptionally well detailed and I can't wait to see what they do going forward.

I still think that a combative miniatures experience isn't quite what I was looking for with a Marvel miniatures game. I think it's cool, obviously, but I am more drawn to the narrative and raid-style games where there is more focus on teaming up against a villainous foe.

Man, it is a good time to be a Marvel fan!
