Updated Rulebook and Errata

The DDM Guild has released a revised version of the Battle Rules and an updated Errata document which eliminates the errata from the last release which is already incorporated in the Battle Rules and adds errata for recent sets.

Megan Smith, a valued community artist and Chapter Master in Brisbane, Australia, brings us the fourth in her series of monthly DDM Guild Repaints. Up this month: the Sharn Redcloak from Demonweb.

Dangerous Delves, Preview 3

There are old goblins, and there are bold goblins, but there are no old, bold goblins. Both of the minis previewed today have a high enough Wisdom score to live by that mantra. Without further ado, it's Goblin time!

Dangerous Delves, Preview 2

Hello! This is your friendly neighborhood Lead Design for Dangerous Delves—well, “lead” in name only, really. One of the most interesting things about this set were the amazing designs that Peter Lee had already done on many of the figures, when they were slated for Feywild.

So, my job was practically done for many of the figures before I even started. Sure, the team had some tweaking on the existing figures to do. Bump a figure’s cost here, change a role there, completely overhaul one there, and so on.

Dangerous Delves, Preview 1

Welcome to the first Dangerous Delves preview! Hopefully, by now, you've gone out and gotten a few of the new Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 1 packs, downloaded the stat cards, and started to flesh out new ideas for warbands.

Many of the stats for Dangerous Delves were originally developed for the Feywild set by Peter Lee (who is co-credited as Lead Designer), with Guild members Stephen Hagan and Michael Domezio contributing additional design and development to the set.

GenCon Event Registration Live

Hey, folks! GenCon event registration went live yesterday. We know historically minis players are typically laid back about registering, and do so fairly late in the process.

But: this is one of the few places where we have concrete visibility into the health of the game, so if you're planning on coming to GenCon, and planning on playing DDM (and why wouldn't you), go, register!

Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 1: Preview 2

With the timeline available to us, this first set was designed a bit differently than most—the timeline was compressed dramatically (from a typical 3-4 months to mere weeks), and several stages of the process are ongoing and overlapping.

So, while I promised final cards for a few figures today, unfortunately, I don't have them. I do have cards in the near-final stage of production, with most of the comments from development integrated.

DDM Guild Repaint: April 2009

Megan Smith, a valued community artist and Chapter Master in Brisbane, Australia, brings us the third in her series of monthly DDM Guild Repaints. Up this month: the Troglodyte Brute From Demonweb.

Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 1: Preview 1

Well, it's that time again. Peter Lee, the current Lead Designer on the D&D Miniatures line has just posted the first preview of the new Player's Handbook Heroes line. His preview focuses on the miniatures and the power cards, of course, since that's what you'll find in the boxes come April 21st.

Organizing DCI-Sanctioned tournaments

Many players of the D&D Miniatures Game don’t realize that the Wizards Play Network (WPN) allows any player of age 18 or older to run DCI-sanctioned D&D Miniatures tournaments at any public location. Manual Dennis, our DDM Guild Chapter Master in the Greater New Orleans (USA) region, has collaborated with us to produce this step-by-step guide to organizing DCI-sanctioned D&D Miniatures tournaments.
