That may make me sound like a Luddite, but I honestly prefer physical hard-copy rule-books to electronic versions, and if I am going to invest my time to game with something, I want to have that in hard-copy. That's just the way I roll, as 'the kids' might say. If Knight Models release hard copy core rules I will buy them; until then I am not too sure that I will game with the minis.
So no BMG gaming imminently on the horizon for me, but as I said I will continue to add more characters to my personal line-up. Right now I have over 30 more BMG/DC Universe/Marvel Universe minis to paint from the Knight Models ranges, so plenty to work on, and inevitably a long-term project.
The metal for this felt better (in other words less soft) when prepping the mini than for the earlier sculpts I have got ready for painting, which is a good thing. The base supplied was a 40 mm which I think was silly. I have kept the model to a 40 mm base simply because I don't want to fudge the game rules for it, but with the mini design, a 50 mm base would have been preferable, because the mini has a tendency to tip towards that outstretched hand. There have been a few minis recently that I feel companies have supplied with 'too small' official bases. Of course I can base them how I like, but as a gamer, I want the bases to be 'game legal' so it is something that bugs me. To my mind, it is about the space the mini occupies on the tabletop; if the bulk of a model so substantively overhangs a base to make getting other models into contact tricky, or if the model is not naturally stable on the base size supplied, then I feel it probably needs to be on a bigger base.
On another note, astute observers may have spotted that I have added 'pages' for the few skirmish games that this blog covers, so just to highlight little bit more redesign may occur in the next few weeks and months.
