Knight Models have a licence to produce rules and miniatures based upon the DC Comics Multiverse, most notably the Batman Miniature Game. There are a host of excellent miniatures which are constantly being expanded to provide as wide a variety of options as possible.
Chosen for review are Batgirl and the Joker and. These figures are fairly thin and tall compared to other figures but are more ‘realistic’ as a consequence. As a licensed product, Knight Models have been given access to every possible piece of artwork available from DC, so they are able to offer the only truly accurate version of each of the characters.
The Batgirl figure is posed quite dramatically, running forward with Batarang in hand, cloak billowing around her. The level of dynamism is great, and you can imagine this particular version of Batgirl (others are available) swooping down upon nefarious criminals.
Which brings us to the Joker and Clowns Starter Set. There are 4 figures in the set, with the Joker figure looking manically menacing and the crazy Clowns armed with everything from a nail gun, bladed shotgun and a meat cleaver. Again, it’s the gleeful looks on the faces of the models, the attention to detail of the poses and clothing and the likenesses to the one of the incarnations of the Joker and his henchmen which really makes them fantastic.
These are excellent figures, perhaps only really compatible with others in the same range, but why wouldn’t you buy more from Knight Models given the excellence and accuracy of these masterpieces in resin? They would function as both collectibles and gaming miniatures, and each comes with game data cards for use with the Batman Miniature Game. We hope to see many more in a similar vein in the future.
