Knight Models has been showing off a lot of the miniatures that are now available as part of their collection for both the DC Universe Miniatures Game and the Batman Miniatures Game. We start with DC at large and some of the big sets.

Apokolips Invasion Force - Knight Models

All good games that include superheroes need a cast of villains for them to face off against and the Apokolips Invasion Force seems to be just that. Included in this set you get Darkseid, Steppenwolf, Big Barda and then a collection of three Parademons which are going to form the bulk of the minions our heroes are going to have to fight through.

Villains At Every Turn

Building on the theme of a rogues gallery we also have this collection of bad guys from the Batman universe who are making their way over into the wider world of DC too.

Batman Villains - Knight Models

Inside this set, you get Ra’s Al Ghul, The Riddler, Bane, Scarecrow, Clayface and finally Solomon Grundy. I particularly like the take on Bane, smashing Batman's signal that he would have housed atop Gotham PD. I also like the wild scenic base you get with Scarecrow, really turning up the scary with the model.

Familiar Faces?

We also have this set of villains we have this twisted take on the Justice League with the introduction of the Crime Syndicate.

Crime Syndicate - Knight Models

This range of characters, from a parallel world where evil won out over good offers up a choice of characters like Superwoman, Owlman, Power Ring, Ultraman and Johnny Quick. It seems that in this parallel universe the naming conventions didn't get too creative, unfortunately. I do love the idea of 'knock-off' heroes turned villain which could get added into your games for a bit more spice.

Weird Heroes

As well as the villains above we also have some heroes from the darker side of DC. This band of miscreants might not look like the shining examples of superhero awesomeness but they will still bring villains low given half the chance.

Justice League Dark - Knight Models

The Justice League Dark set contains Zatanna, Swamp Thing, Black Orchid, Deadman, Constantine and Jason Blood & Etrigan. I must admit that, apart from Constantine, I'm not familiar with many of these characters but I know that Sam is a particular fan of these darker heroes from the DC mythos.

The Seven...err, Justice League!

Last but not least we've pretty much got every member of the Justice League besides Cyborg. The set comes with Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman and Flash, all in their movie guises.

Justice League - Knight Models

I think these are some very neat looking miniatures, especially for Wonder Woman and Superman. I think it would be fascinating to see how a full power Justice League would do on the tabletop when stacked against the likes of the Darkseid and his cronies!

That would make for one hell of a tabletop scrap and probably a lot of destroyed buildings at that abandoned industrial estate that they always seem to find themselves in. If it were a British show, it would be an old mine...

Batman Bikers

As well as all of the new additions into the mix for the DC Universe Miniatures Game we also have the Street Demonz Bikers for use in the Batman Miniatures Game.

These fellows are looking about ready to do some drive buys, knocking your block off at the same time! I would love to see Batman doing a high-speed chance across the tabletop against these particular mobsters.

So, with that raft of new releases, what are you planning to pick up?

Let us know in the comments below!
