Here's an absolute esential bookmark for anyone interested in D&D Minis.

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mi/20031113x

This online app is packed with nice features for you to look at available minis and build your warbands. I can get lost for hours perusing all the minis that have been made.

The DDM2 rulebook!

First set of stat cards: Desert of Desolation.

List of DDMs that will make it into the All Stars set (minus 2, still to be selected). WoTC will make stat cards for these All Stars available for DDM2. I'm happy at least a few of mine made it into this list.

Good links. I thnk those last 2 minis to be selected were to be done by WotC staff (I could be wrong, seem to remember reading that somewhere).

The last one is. The 2nd to last is still open for votes. (look at mini archives on the WoTC page for the link).

Edit: Spoke too soon. They closed the voting and posted the results... the Gauth made the cut (mini-beholder). Just waiting on WoTC's choice for the last one.

I just read on the WotC site that it will be a 'final' mini. Does anyone know when they will post that bad boy (or girl)?

I was just pointed to this site:

Excellent resource for tracking your DDM 2.0 collection and submitting/browsing warbands.

I recently split a Dungeons of Dread case with a friend, so I was able to build several warbands you can see here: [URL]http://www.ddshoebox.com/userSquad.cfm?user=lachoneus8

How is the new mini's game?...I have a bunch of the old game sets. I find a group of drow to be tough usually, all munchkinosity aside, combined with a couple giant spiders or swarms as "free" extra's from one or another of the drow (priestess, etc)

I'm loving DDM2. They sped it up a bit, consolidated a lot of similar abilities and conditions, and improved the balance. The way mini turns are done are improved, and the combat is generally a lot more mobile (DDM1 often turned into a stand next to each other slugfest).

I also like how DDM2 is going to closely model 4e, making it possible to shift to minis rules for large 4e battles if you choose.

The new faction rules are nice too. Instead of having just alignment-based bands, you can mix and match a lot more. And each mini is usually be part of multiple factions, making it a lot easier to build a warband with the random minis you pick up.
