100 Point Assault Format

Strategy Guide: 50 point Assault

In this multi-part article, Moraturi thoughtfully offers many useful strategy tips for formats that are less commonly played. These formats are especially interesting for warband building considerations since fewer of these warbands have ever been tested in competition. I have often used these smaller formats to introduce new players to the game, since they all play quickly. Thank you, Moraturi! -Ira

Strategy Guide: 50 point Assault

Euro Championships and Comicon compete for DDM players

Ok, these two very different events don't really compete for the massive market that is the DDM miniatures player. But, there are examples of the new Icons miniatures being released at Comicon, and the stats for 6 of these are also being released in Prague tonight. And both of these things are worth thinking about as a community from the stat card perspective.

And the Winner is...

...And the winner is... Louis Martineau, also known as Skyscraper. His concept to have a covert piece start from the opponents start area, rather than your own, places a novel and unique perspective on the game. We are releasing the card here.

The Tyranny Contest

As promised in the last announcement, a contest is coming, and this is it. Despite the number of years we've been around, I think this is actually our first design contest. I'm looking forward to seeing your ideas on display!

Tyranny; the Gift that keeps on Giving.

Here, we are releasing a new set of items for DDM; The Tools of Tyranny. This is an experiment in part, because here we do a theme we've not done before. I'm not talking about items dedicated to a race - we did that with the orcs. Rather, we are releasing a set of items where each can be used by only a single creature.

Dwarven Tiles

Tiles are making a comeback. Or at least, they might. I am releasing a beta version of the Dwarven Halls tile set we developed last spring for open playtest. Each tile is placed on a 3x4 section of the board, and may subtly, or not-so-subtly, change it.

Tract of the Tarrasque: The (Legal) Modification

This solves everything.
Ok, it doesn't quite solve everything, but it makes the cool artwork of Jared Von Hindeman legal again in the DDM game.

GenCon Treats

Gencon saw the release of four different promotional item cards. While these cards may be included in a future set, I can't see any reason not to release them for play right now.
