Batman Miniatures Game: Black Mask & Crew
I want this man dead. When I say "dead," I mean seriously dead. Beaten, broken. His head mounted-on-my-wall kind of dead!? - Black Mask
Roman Sionis is also known as the Black Mask. Head of the False Facers Society.
Raised in a well off family, Roman often heard of his parents dislike of the Wayne's of Gotham which in turn led to a dislike of young Bruce. He didn't like the 'masks' these sort of people wore in public. He preferred real masks and had quite a collection of them.
When Roman's parents didn't approve of his love Circe, he burned down the family mansion killing both of them and inheriting the family business.
Roman's life soon fell apart with the business going under and Circe leaving him. Blaming his parents for all that had happened, Roman broke into the family crypt, smashed his fathers ebony casket and carved a mask for himself to take on the new role of Black Mask.
Not long after, Black Mask had gathered several of Gothams mobsters and bosses into the False Facers Society and began to try and take down all who he had believed to have wronged him. Including Bruce Wayne.
This obviously led to confrontations with the Batman and gained Black Mask some time in Arkham Asylum.
He wasn't stopped by this though and went on to rule the majority of Gothams underworld crime scene. Taking control of any areas of crime he could, he began to cross paths with others in the city like Catwoman and the Red Hood. But Black Mask is resourceful. If he needed help he would hire it. All sorts of people from Mr Freeze to Deathstroke and even the Joker have worked for or with Black Mask at one time or another.
In the Batman Miniatures Game, Black Mask leads his crews to take what he wants.
Black Mask himself is a deadly foe. Armed with his Personal Gun and even Grenades, Black Mask likes to deal with problems before they reach him.
He is also very skilled at leading. He can increase the damage of his crew, change their plans and have them all working together when needed.
As a Sidekick, Black Mask employs the Corrupt Lieutenant Branden of the GCPD. This give Black Mask some well armed protection who can also bring along with him some other Corrupt Cops. Even a full SWAT team.
The Standard Henchmen in a Black Mask crew are cheap and basic. Armed with simple weapons, they may not look like much but are Brutal when the time comes.
As a Mob boss though, Black Mask can also enlist the help of Mobsters. Not as cheap but they bring some big guns with them.
As the Black Mask likes the right man for the job, Free Agents are perfect. Backing up the cheap Henchmen with dangerous combatants.
Deathstroke is a great choice here. Able to go toe to toe with Batman himself, Deathstroke earns his name 'the terminator' again and again.
Another good choice would be Deadshot. If Black Mask wants someone taken down, he's going to hire the best assassins in the business to do it.
Overall, a Black Mask crew is the criminal underworld of Gotham at it's finest. Mafia, thugs, corrupt cops and even skilled assassins are all there to take down anyone that opposes Roman Sionis.
