  • CHARACTER SUMMARY: TOAD (Mortimer Toynbee)

    10th Apr 2021 by

    At long last we come inexorably to the last of the 2020 Brotherhood releases, Toad. How to translate Magneto’s loyal lackey into the game? How to make someone dressed like a medieval court jester a desirable model to reach for? Let’s see. STAMINA – 5, decent enough. MOVEMENT – Medium, surprising given that he is… Read more

  • CHARACTER SUMMARY: SABRETOOTH (Victor Creed)

    6th Apr 2021 by

    It’s time to move onto the penultimate Brotherhood of Mutants character now, namely Sabretooth. Some people call him crap-Wolverine, but is that true? And how have AMG translated him into the game? Let’s see. STAMINA – 6, nice and chunky. MOVEMENT – Sweet, nourishing, wondrous long. SIZE – 3, which surprised me a little. But… Read more

  • CHARACTER SUMMARY: MYSTIQUE (Raven Darkhölme)

  • CHARACTER SUMMARY: MAGNETO (Max Eisenhardt)

    16th Feb 2021 by

    This is a big one, and I, like many others, was intrigued to see how AMG would represent Magneto in the game. He is, after all, extremely powerful in Marvel lore; so have AMG managed to meet our expectations and given us a powerful yet balanced character? Is Magneto one of the best minis to… Read more

  • CHARACTER SUMMARY: BEAST (Henry McCoy)

    5th Jan 2021 by

    And now we come to it, the last of the X-folk for the time being. This mini was a joy to paint (except for the inside of that metallic column, urgh), but is Beast a joy to play? Let’s see… STAMINA – Beast has a nice chunky 6 stamina. MOVEMENT – Medium, but on a… Read more
