Batman Miniatures Game: Arkham Knight Batmobile

This weekend was spent finishing off my most recent project: the Arkham Knight Batmobile, from Knight Models!

Apologies in advance for the number of pictures this week, but I really enjoyed painting this model and I'm very pleased with the results.

Despite the limited palette, I took a while getting through the vehicle as I wanted to get it right. There are several grey and blue tones in the highlights, which I mainly applied via dry brushing.

Although not technically accurate I guess, I wanted to have the guns deployed on the roof but decided against building the model in battle mode. It's composed of several "chunks" of resin, so with the wheels deployed it would be quite delicate. It feels much more compact and safe built like this!

The gun was weathered separately to the rest of the car.

I applied weathering to the wheels, as well as the wheel arches. Several MIG weathering pigments were used, and sealed in stages to improve durability.

The rear of the car received some metallic weathering, but not too much. It's difficult to make out the engine here, but it has also been weathered with soot.

This is a good wheel arch shot, showing mud splashes.

And here's the Batmobile with my favourite Batman figures...

Batgirl is a great BMG mini, which is probably a bit more "comic book" than the style of the car.

It also comes with a rules card, but the actual rules for vehicles aren't in the main book. Those are in the Arrow and Flash Expansion, which is actually due for release imminently!
