Knight Models Cease Production of Marvel Properties

February 11th, 2017

Knight Models has announced that they will no longer be making miniatures based on Marvel properties. This means that their Marvel Universe Miniatures Game as well as the Spider-Man Miniatures Game are coming to an end.

Dear Customers,

This is going to be a year full of changes and new projects at Knight Models.

Our company was founded in 2008 and began working with Marvel Entertainment Inc. licensed products by designing and manufacturing high quality miniatures of its most famous heroes and villains for collectors and painters. Later, we expanded that relationship and created the Universe Miniature Game and its range of gaming miniatures.

Our long entrepreneurial relationship with Marvel has been incredible, and working on such a gratifying project for so many years, developing those characters that we love so much, has made us very happy. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

Knight Models will no longer make products based on the Marvel Universe licence.

It has been a difficult decision, as many hours of work, effort and excitement were invested in this licence. But we consider that our business must follow another path.

We would like to thank the teams at Disney and Marvel Entertainment Inc. for allowing us to create such wonderful products. We also want to thank you, our followers, for your support.

Our investment in our superheroes lines, however, continues with the DC Universe Miniature Game and, of course, our flagship Batman Miniature Game – these lines will continue to be developed, and we’re incredibly excited for the future of these lines, as well as forthcoming projects. The Batman Miniature Game has become a cornerstone in miniature skirmish gaming. The successful launch of the Suicide Squad game box has allowed us to invest even further in the game’s future, and grow our wonderful gaming community.

This year we celebrate the Batman Miniature Game’s 5th Anniversary, and we’re doing so in style, with some very special anniversary products and brand new expansions, starting with the Arkham Knight campaign book, with more great new content to follow.

Of course, it cannot have escaped the community’s attention that Knight Models will soon be launching another big licenced product. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Warner Bros. over the following years, and enter the fantastic, magical universe of Harry Potter. The Harry Potter Miniature Game will be a culmination of the team’s hard work and dedication to creating a true quality gaming experience, and we look forward to launching some of the most spectacular miniatures to accompany it. We hope that you’ll enjoy this new project as much as we have working on it!

WizKids Previews Iron Man and War Machine Cards for Dice Masters

January 22nd, 2017

Dice Masters Fans! The Marvel Dice Masters: Iron Man and War Machine Starter Set is coming soon, and they have got some exciting previews of what cards you’ll see!

Today we’ll be looking at three cards with the brand new Suit Up keyword!

When Tony Stark wants to suit up with his armor, he doesn’t have to wait, and now neither do you! When you purchase a character die with the Suit Up keyword, you can immediately field it on its level two side if you KO another character die that matches its keyword.

Iron Spider: Waldoes is a great example. If you have a Spider-Man die in the field, you don’t have to wait to pack a punch with his 4 attack on his level two side. Just KO the Spider-Man die and immediately field your Iron Spider!

Need quick access to a character with the Fast keyword? Then War Machine: JRXL-1000 is the character for you. James Rhodes won’t mind if Iron Man borrows the armor he made for Rhodey. Suit up Iron Man in Rhodey’s “Fast”er armor by KO’ing an Iron Man die after purchasing War Machine for superior combat abilities.

Iron Manor: Celestial Slayer truly takes full advantage of the Suit Up keyword. There’s no reason to worry about paying the fielding cost on the Stark Industries die you Suited Up last turn. Just use Iron Manor’s Global Ability to spin that level two die down a level to reduce the fielding cost of the die you suited up. And now that you have several different Stark Industries affiliated character’s in the Field Zone, your Iron Manor dice, which get +1A and +1D for each other active Stark Industries character will be even bigger!

 These are just a few of the suits Tony Stark made that will be available with the Suit Up ability. Find out what the rest are in the Marvel Dice Masters: Iron Man and War Machine Starter Set!
