Marvel Crisis Protocol – Earth’s Mightiest Core Set Heroes and Villains

We gave a first introduction on Earth's Mightiest for Marvel Crisis Protocol and now we want to take a closer look on the miniatures that come with the Core Set.

Marvel Crisis Protocol - Earth's Mightiest Core Set
Within the 149 EUR set, that covers rules, terrain and miniatures, you get two large sprues for the heroes and villains, along with 16 bases (4 large ones, 12 small ones).

The models have only minor mould lines and proper crisp casting of the details. The space within the sprue was used in a clever way. Really interesting is the aspect, that parts of the mould were slid-moulds, to reduce the undercuts and make them even more detailed.

Marvel Crisis Protocol – Earth’s Mightiest Core Set

We talked about Super Heroes on the tabletop last year, and now it is time to take a closer look on one of the largest Super Hero miniature games there is - Marvel Crisis Protocol. Asmodee picked up the Marvel license, and within their group Atomic Mass Games is in charge of the super hero skirmish.

While there were several attempts to bring fighting super heroes to the tabletop, this is one is probably the most professional approach and the one most speaking to classic tabletop wargamers, who at least enjoy multiple pillars of the hobby, as it is not some kind blind bags with pre-painted miniatures.

Throwback to Crisis in Antwerp

Under different circumstances, I'd be psyched the whole week, with anticipation of driving to Antwerp, meeting with a lot of people that I wouldn't have seen since Salute (yeah, that didn't happen either). I had quite the plans for this year, as you can read in the Kick Off from back in January. And Antwerp would have been the guys weekend, the final show before a Brexit would make a lot of things in Wargaming a lot more difficult.

Tinsoldiers of Antwerp - CRISIS 2019

At the very first show I went to in 2011 I was driving in the early morning, but very soon we realized, Antwerpen is a city that offers that much, that you need more time. So our schedule for the weekend shifted towards an arrival on friday early afternoon, to have time for a proper tour of the flemish city.

Dino(‘s) Crisis 2019

Two weeks ago, on November 9th and 10th to be exact, Crisis took place in Antwerp, hosted by the Tinsoldiers of Antwerp. Dennis had already visited Crisis many times and delivered a good coverage in Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of his article series. For me, on the other hand, it should be a premiere, both for the event and for the city. Therefore you'll only get a subjective view of the weekend from me.

I've been to Belgium before, but that was more than 20 years ago and back then it was a visit to the capital Brussels. We arrived one evening sooner in order to save ourselves as much stress as possible on the trip there, but also in order to take some impressions of the city with us. We also took part in a small tradition that I didn't know it was bound to happen until I was right in the middle of it.

Crisis 2019 – Part III

Let's start with the last set of pictures in part III of the Crisis 2019 coverage.

Naval wargaming, even with the recent introduction of Cruel and Black Seas is still rare, the more I was happy to see this ancient table by the La ligue des Gentlemen Civilisateurs.

Crisis 2019 – Part II

Continuing the coverage on Crisis with another set of 50 pictures in part II.

The League of Augsburg showed The War of Three Kings on a proper teddy-bear gaming mat. I like the different heights, with hills and valleys, they included ins this battlefield.

Crisis 2019 – Part I

Not the usual first weekend in November, but the second was the date for Crisis this year, due to the holidays and a Halloween Party at the Waagnatie. So Crisis 2019 was held on the weekend of November 9th in Antwerp.

Clear blue sky over Flandern. My 7th Crisis and Dino's first one, so headed over to the show and were excited about this years tables, offers and novelties. We were there a bit early, so we got lucky in the parking lot and the queue.

Crisis 2019 haul

Back from yet another successful show - CRISIS 2019! It was amazing short weekend in Antwerp, great company, enjoyed a lot of good chats. The show managed to withstand the troubles of Brexit, include lots of traders from both sides of the channel and a pretty filled Bring & Buy.

I'll cover the show itself in a couple of articles of their own, as usual and as in the past. But this one, is about my haul from the show.
