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.

Which miniatures do we want to release stats for? Pathfinder is probably not going to happen, because we'd need their official ok to do this, and that's not likely in the cards. But small manufacturers like Dungeon Crawler? They'd love to pair with us, and the minis are still readily available and not too expensive. And they have Colossal figures, like the Kraken, in the works...

Just this week I saw a Comic-con type of post in the forums. Can we stat figures from Heroclix? Of course, we can't. But we can release fun stats every now and then, such as this one inspired by the festivities of Comic-con here in my home town.

So what do we think as a community? Do we want engage more actively to have new stats available?
It'd be good to have your thoughts here.

If new figures are coming out, I'd love to see new stats to go with them (WizKids). New cards will allow the designers to create a dynamic and interesting metagame, and fill in existing gaps.

I personally think super-hero figures are too far off our theme to fit in official guild stats, but I don't think you're considering that. The Dungeon Crawler minis seem pricey, but there aren't too many of them so I'm not too worried.

I'd also like to see alternate cards for commons that are still available and inexpensive. The item set is great, and alternate cards would be fun and valuable too.

I'd definitely want to see stats for the new WoTC/Wizkids minis - I think we could use this to kickstart a scene again using sealed events - maybe 150 pts.

Pathfinder - would love these, but that job is huge, and probably illegal

Dungeon Crawler have some really cool minis - would love to have these statted.

Yes , new stats for new available figures would be great . You then can have events in shops / at events etc... . Which then could increase interest and hopefully player base .

New stats for the WotC sets would be great. I am also very much in favor of doing stats for the Dungeon Crawler minis. DC has only released a few minis in each set (4? in each of 3 sets so far). There are only 12 total creatures at this point, with a couple of possible variants, and the next set is due out in Sept, I think, so there aren't that many overall to create.

As for superhero minis, I don't have as much enthusiasm. They can be fun, "fluff" pieces, but they just don't fit the DDM theme well. They might be nice as conversation pieces. That said, if you want to do a Green Lantern, I am all for it Smile

I was actually thinking of cherry picking miniatures.
The first set I have laid out is Mangrove Blight.
8 cards, including the Kraken.

I would absolutely love to see any minis from the new D&D line getting their own cards.

Dungeon Crawler is a very good example of non-DDM individual miniatures that would go great with the the fantasy setting of DDM and i would like to see cards of these as well.

Being a casual player, i am very often using unofficial cards for non-D&D miniatures with the group of friends that i play with, and we are having a blast every time. I encourage and support any release of fun stats and cards, even if they are not playable in official competitive events.

I gotta say I love it! More more more! I know a lot of heroclix owners are looking for more ways to use their minis.

Although, I always saw Spider Sense as much more powerful, more like Conceal 11 like a Displacer Beast.

So, no Heroclix (Tried ruled it out), no Pathfinder (same). I have zero interest seeing anything from the Superhero, or modern, or future worlds entering DDM.

Now, fantasy minis from other manufacturers such as DC (Dungeon Crawler, not the comic books), these I just love to see! They are great minis, Greyhaze is a super guy and I just knew he would be willing to pair up. A resounding "Yes!" here.

What about re-stating some of the more iconic figures of the sets we have to make them more "Epic"?! I/we (our little local group!) can think of Bruenor and Wulfgar for example that could take a bit of beefing up to make them competitive in say a fight vs Lvl 20 creatures! Maybe we can have a competition to design such a card for a select few minis... just a thought to boot, shoot or root for!

Necro-thread, rah!

So only a year late, but still...its my understanding that if any of the creatures are in the Pathfinder SRD, it would absolutely be legal to stat those. (As they are publicly available via the OGL which allows Pathfinder to be produced in the first place.) I'm no OGL expert by any means, so if I'm mistaken feel free to point it out.=)

I don't expect anything to come of it, but I'll drop a note to the PF folks and ask about the OE group statting their other monsters for OEDDM as well.
