BMG mini done, and also reflects that I have settled on what I want to be my next tournament crew (if it all gets painted in time): the Court of Owls.
I have been pleasantly surprised by how much I like the addition of the Court of Owls to the Batman mythos, despite my overall general dislike for the New 52 from DC Comics. Because the majority of my games tend to be at tournaments, the Court of Owls were not pressing to be fully painted up since they did not meet the typical Reputation value of the tournaments that I attend, however this month another crew pack is due for release to meet that limit. Unfortunately the rules as written mean the Court cannot make full use of the other points value allocation (Funding) at this time for crews above 300 Reputation; still I am going to give them a try or two.
Gotham Butcher is possibly the cheapest Large Free Agent going right now, and brings some real hitting power with Claws, Brutal and decent Strength. Due to all the possible points combinations, he has to be included in a 350 crew unless I want to leave myself many points short. I think it will take a little getting used to to maximise his impact on the table.
