Nerds on Earth gives us their thoughts on the new D&D Attack Wing from WizKids in this review article.


From the website:

D&D Attack Wing is a miniatures game. It’s the classic and beloved Dungeons and Dragons fantasy theme combined with tactical combat rules. Players plan their movement strategy with the included maneuver dials, then attack via custom dice and ability cards. I had a blast with the simple task of punching everything out and flipping through are the gorgeous cards. (And they are gorgeous. Well done art and design teams.)

D&D Attack Wing is played using modified rules from what is undoubtedly the most popular game of this type: Star Wars X-Wing. But even though they licensed X-Wing’s rules from Fantasy Flight Games, they made some modifications: Some good, some bad, and some not enough in my opinion.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I’m having some trouble reconciling the glowing praise heaped on the miniatures in the review with the laughably terrible looking minis in the pictures. Mebbe they look better in person?

    They look acceptable. The larger the mini, the better so far. The elves are not good. Spears are horribly bent, paint is very one dimensional. Hobgoblins are a bit better. Dragons could be better, but are tabletop acceptable

    But the game overall, is very good mechanically so far
