While the original post was somewhat of an April Fool's joke, the response has been great - even surprising, both on boards, forums and those of you who took time to contact me directly. So, what is a poor guildmaster to do? I've gone back and edited the stats to allow this to release a legal set of figures that are interesting, but will not unbalance the game. And if it adds one more reason to pick up the Conquest of Nerath board game, terrific! Please use the most recent file for the Conquest of Nerath Miniature Set.
We'll see what we can do moving forward to convince you that picking up this game is a good thing. I'll come up with three more reasons in the next week. In the meantime, enjoy the original April Fool's article.
At long last, we are happy to release the stat-cards for the latest D&D Miniatures release: the Dragon Collector's Set. As you know each dragon is unique. After all, a village is almost never menaced by 'a' dragon - you always hear stories about 'the' dragon. It seems like, at least in the stories, these dragons are never alike, and so we aimed at doing this with the current set.
GenCon saw a surpise releases of the new epic set with boosters that were packaged by the DDM guild members themselves. The boosters (8/box, 7 cases total) were used in league all weekend, and a couple of them even ended up finding their way to tables during the community draft.
The suggestion came from the Guild membership, and it was a good one. Could we have a central place to find all of the magic items - a super-set? It was a great idea, and we've assembled this for you in the all new DDM Item Compendium, available just in time for GenCon (at least, in time for those of you who will be making the con).
Update: The changelist of the first 3 sets is included in this post.
The DDM Guild is pleased to release the scenario and stat card for the Gargantuan Blue Dragon.
The scenario that we’ve chosen is focuses on a very special ancient Blue Dragon; Iymrith the Queen of the Cold Desert; Dragon of the Statues. The link to the scenario is further down in the article, but for those interested in Iymrith’s background… You can read more about her here.. I think you will see why we chose her as our Iconic Blue.
From time to time, the DDM Guild will ban figures which endanger the health of competitve play. This occurs when figures become troublesome for timely execution of play, or otherwise limit the overall potential diversity of the organized play experience.
