Whenever you sit down for your RPG session, you want to have the right minis for the right situation. At least, I do my best to always have the proper mini to represent the enemies and NPCs out there. “Yeah, it’s all goblin minis, but they’re really giant spiders” isn’t ...

While Batman takes care of much of the crime problem in Gotham, he doesn’t work alone. Commissioner Gordon certainly does all he can from within a system that seems tailor-made for corruption and ineptitude. He’s getting a card and dice in the upcoming Dice Masters set, as is it Bat-Signa...

You know, if you’re going to have a set called Wonder Woman, you’d better have Wonder Woman in there. And WizKids has just that. The new set is on its way soon and, in this preview, we get a look at the Amazonian, herself....

The new Wonder Woman set gets ever-closer to release for HeroClix. As always, the set includes characters from both the “good” and “bad” side of the law. In this case, it’s Cheetah. Because one Cat-Woman wasn’t enough for the DC universe (not to say Mervel doesn...

The Wonder Woman set for HeroClix will be coming out soon. In it, they’ll have more than just Wonder Woman. Though, with all the different versions characters go through in comics, I could see them coming out with a set of “just one character.” Anyway, one (well, two of the figures,...

A lot of people were excited to see the unpainted line of figures coming from WizKids. Well, they’ve heard you and are thus going to be expanding the line. And, once more, they’ve heard you. They took all the suggestions you sent in after the initial release, distilled them down, and are ...

Role playing characters level up (unless they get killed off or your group can never manage to get together for a game). It’s sort of what they do. They gain new abilities and gear. Things change. So why shouldn’t your miniatures? WizKids has announced their D&D Icons of the Realms Ep...

WizKids is happy to announce that they’ve re-signed their licensing deal with CBS for Star Trek. Considering how big a property Star Trek is, that’s newsworthy in and of itself. But they’ve also posted up a list of new products they’re going to be coming out with that license....

Comics are filled with all sorts of colorful characters. The Porcupine is certainly among them. Looking at the costume, he’s giving me a sort of “Ultimate Warrior” vibe, but without the face paint. Anyway, the villain is coming to your HeroClix games in the Avengers/Defenders War se...

Ah, Camelot. It might be a silly place (where you sing from the diaphragm a lot), but it’s still full of wonders and spectacle. One such spectacle takes the form of tournaments, where knights look to show their prowess in combat against one-another. But, seeing as Merlin is never far away, ther...

When you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m willing to say it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re thinking of Groot and Rocket Raccoon. While Star Lord may be the leader, and Drax and Gamora certainly have their parts to play, the dynamic duo of a talking (kind of) tree and murde...

The Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have some interesting-looking characters they interact with. One of them is the space pirate, Yondu. I mean, he’s got an arrow that he can control… psychically? Magically? I don’t honestly know. But you don’t want to get hit by it, th...

Some of us love to paint. Some of us don’t. Personally, I fall into the “don’t” category, but I certainly can understand why others do enjoy it. For those that want to have your own RPG minis in the colors you want, you can now pick up the Pathfinder Battles Deep Cuts minis. T...
