As some of you may know, I like Batman.
I like Miniatures.
Lowe and behold... I surfed the blog-verse this morning whilst my PC updated, I came across this post from Tales of a Tabletop Skirmisher: NEW- Batman Miniature Game from Knight Models
I'd been planning on working on rules / miniatures for a Batman demo game for ages and hadn't got round to it. Now I know this is coming, all I can do is wait like a giddy kid before Christmas.
Even better is the fact the models are based off the Arkham games, as they're two of my favourite games of all time.
It's an official DC licensed product and I cannot wait for them to release stuff from it. From scouring their Facebook page, I can't get any more info about it, but Knight Models make some fantastic stuff. I can remember they had the license for Marvel stuff a while back. I thought about getting some to paint, then thought I can't do the models justice.
