Marvel Universe Miniatures Game - Sabretooth
Knight Models are continuing to expand the range of miniatures for both their Batman Miniatures Game and their Marvel Universe Miniatures Game and after my recent acquisition of their X-Men Starter Set I decided to expand my options with a few more members of the X-Men faction...well...kind of...
Sabretooth - Blister and Insert
The individual models come in blister packs which also contain the models stat card.
Sabretooth - Stat Card
I've taken a picture of the stat card so you can see the quality and overall look as well as including a picture of the official version downloaded from the Knight Models website in case any of the info is obscured on the card version.
All of the current Knight Models 30mm and many of the 40mm based range come with a textured base. These bases are all identical so if you're looking for some variety then you may want to remove the tab from the models base and attach it to something else. Sabretooth is 40mm...
Sabretooth - Unassembled
Here's pictures of both sides of the unassembled model.
Sabretooth - Assembled
The models arms have indentations on them that fit into domes on the models elbow regions and due to the angle of the arms will pretty much only go on one way. There was some fairly thick flash under one arm that needed trimming away as well. The model will also need some mould lines removing and this can be simply done with either a sharp blade or a decent file though be careful not to remove any detail while doing so.
Sabretooth - Other Views
Here's a couple of close-up views of the model and a multiple angle view.
Sabretooth - Comic Outfits
If you happen to be looking for colour scheme inspiration then Mr Creed has had a few outfit changes though most fit the same approximate look...
Should you be interested in this set or any other models from the Marvel Universe Miniatures Game factions then this page here will let you know what models are available for each faction.
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
