These options look better than the miniature


Even the board size is not long enough to take a ride, for $35 is not for me.

But how will you use it without the cards and rules for it? Or the scenarios.

Easy. He won't. I won't either.

Batmobile does seem like a bit of an afterthought and at $35 I will probably drop my all in pledge and just get the other 3 expansions.

I like the Batmobile. I own it already from Eaglemoss. It is little expensive and I would expect more in the box, but overall, with all the stretch goals we will hopefully get, I can ignore the price.

Personally I would love to get a in-scale 92 TAS-mobile. The Eaglemoss version is sadly much to small for my minis.

I don't think having a ride with Batmobile or any vehicle make much sense in a 35mm miniature game. Only reasons I see to use a vehicle:
- starting with it driving on the game board
- use it as storage to collect items
- a storage to refresh ammo, first aid kits or similiar
- driving off the board
- use them as cover or to hide
- stand on them to be on higher ground
- any other reason as a objective marker
- block others to come through a door or narrow alley or something like it
- maybe drive over an enemy...
- to reach higher levels, like top of the buildings

I don't like it if the vehicles would be out of scale, like the ones in the pictures of the first post for example.

Did I mention that I would love to get a in-scale 92 TAS-mobile. The Eaglemoss version is sadly much to small for my minis.

Also a Batpod, Tim Drakes car and other minis on a motor bike would be cool (See Gotham City Garage comics).

They said in the description that the Batmobile can break down walls and take out groups of Thugs.

So there is some small tactical element in using the Batmobile in those 3 scenarios (with more scenarios to follow after KS, if this games support is anything like in Conan)

Perhaps the heroes are badly outnumbered and the only thing to even the odds is the correct use of the Batmobile with remote control. I'm expecting those 3 scenarios might be fun.

So I'm sticking with the all in. I would buy extra dice anyway, so I figure the free dice discount is really Batmobile add on discount for me... Sematics, I know...

And maybe we will get even more informations about the Batmobile during the KS.

I hope that the community will grow strongly. And also make new scenarios for it.

I'm only sad that it is not possible for Monolith Games to sell the game from their shop later.

If it is not planned, I will do a scenario with the Jason encounter, when he was stealing the wheel even if it is not this version ...

Here’s another way to look at it. It has three scenarios. So at the very least that’s 3-4 of addiontal gaming. So you’re hovering around $10 an hour for some entertainment. Even less if the scenarios are longer/played multiple times. So that makes if feel even more like a no brained for me. But Ymmv if you don’t play your games often enough.

One of the Monolith guys in the comments of the campaign said that the Batmobile mini is 16.5cm x 6.5cm.
