Just this week WizKids CEO Justin Ziran, while at Toy Fair, explained more about the company’s upcoming releases based on Dungeons and Dragons. “There are actually two lines in the works right now,” Ziran said. “There is the RPG collectibles, the accessory line, which very much looks like D&D Miniatures but with no game. And then there’s a game called Attack Wing Dungeons and Dragons.” says Ziran.
“It will follow the formats that we’ve defined with Star Trek Attack Wing, except this will be dogfighting dragons!” Ziran said. “Ok, so you have dogfighting dragons, but what about ground troops? You’re going to have those too! Giants, ballistas, magic users all fighting the dragons up above and the dragons raining fire down on them. It’s a very interesting take on this category.”
The first products released will be for the Dungeons and Dragons accessory line (RPG), and they will be sold in a Starters and Boosters configuration, with blind purchase on the boosters. Can you say D&D Miniatures? The Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures Heroes Starters will include six iconic pre-painted figures for $19.99 MSRP with a release in the summer.
Following in late summer will be the Dungeons & Dragons Fantasy Miniatures: Set One Boosters, which will each contain four from around 50 a miniatures set inspired by the Dungeons and Dragons universe. They’ll be sold in WizKids’ usual brick configuration but the most important fact is PHD will have full stocks of them! No exclusives here. PHD will be offering you the full range with a special incentive miniature (see later)!
Dungeons & Dragons Attack Wing will be available in, and like the company’s Star Trek Attack Wing, will feature the FlightPath engine developed by Fantasy Flight Games for its Star Wars X-Wing miniatures game.
What’s in a Starter?
The starters will contain three pre-painted plastic dragons with base and pegs, x3 maneuver dials, cards and tokens, with a projected MSRP of $39.99 (this is subject to change).
Wave One Expansion Packs, eight in all, will also be available, sold individually for $14.99 (this is subject to change).
Wave Two Expansion Packs, three in all, will tentatively be available December 3, also with MSRP of $14.99 (subject to change).
I’ll quote directly from the literature sent from WizKids “This fantastic pre-painted promotional figure stands several inches tall and towers over all miniatures in the Dungeons & Dragons Fantasy Miniatures: Set One miniatures set. The perfect adversary for your next adventure, this promotional figure is a beautiful display piece as well!” What’s your guess to what this could be?
