Thunder

The Storm King is here. My friends, welcome to the Storm Kings Thunder. The set is greatly overdue, but I believe it is a phenomenal set that should finally allow the big boys a place on the competitive battle maps of the world. And with the great-looking miniatures that are part of this set, you will want to show them off. At least I would.

The Alpha Solo Beta

Hmmm. Maybe calling the original solo creature release alpha, then releasing it as a beta, wasn't the best way to do things in a clear way. But the creatures released here are quite awesome, and should allow us to answer the question as to whether a single creature can be an entire warband. While they are not yet legal, we hope that some play testing and your advice will allow us to will place these creatures in good legal stead.

The Not-So-Glass Menagerie.

Tennessee Williams wrote the Glass Menagerie in 1944, and an iconic glass unicorn from that play is the symbol of this set. This set does include a Unicorn, but its definitely not weaker than those made previously. Aside from a few 'glass cannons,' the similarities to the play end there. And by class cannons, I would suggest a certain undead piece above 130 points that now does the highest outright damage in the game. But only has 80 HP himself. One of the most scary enemies in D&D, it can now be a real threat in DDM.

2016 Compiled Card Revisions

Since the beginning of DDM, we've never wanted to ban miniatures.
But we started in 2010, as part of an effort to keep the competitive play atmosphere healthy.

The best competition has nobody holding back their creativity, or avoiding a warband because its simply too good for competitive play and will make them unpopular.

We added six new creatures to the Banned list this year - briefly. Then we gave them new cards and re-released them. Nobody wants a miniature that just sits on a shelf, collecting dust, do they?

All the Rage....

Its been a long road.

There have been contests, revisions, back and forth with designers. There have been previews, and the work is not yet done, because two pieces are not yet released. (they are coming in the solo monsters set beta next weekend). Lots of interactions here. But all the pieces are playworthy, or close to it, and I think this could even be a favored set for sealed.

In the end, I think you will agree it is a very strong SET.
Enough said, already,
Go play.

Elemental Evil: The Iconic Adventure Continues...

This is the end of 2015, the seventh year of Guild-run minis. And with the end of this year, we will release the final set of stats from the 2015 Elemental Evils set. Seems a fitting end to the year, even as we look forward to cool things in 2016...
