WoW Miniatures Game From Upper Deck

Posted Thu, Oct 02, 2008 by Medeor

World of Warcraft Miniatures Game to launch concurrent with Lich King.

World of Warcraft continues it's reach beyond your computer screen. According to WoW Insider, the WoW Miniatures Game from Upper Deck will hit shelves on November 11th. If that date sounds familiar, it is probably because the WoW expansion Wrath of the Lich King will launch on November 13th. According to Upper Deck, the miniature game will offer:

The exciting game engine will allow for all the experiences that appeal to miniatures enthusiasts and World of Warcraft fans alike. You can assemble a party of anywhere from one to five characters, all drawn from the classes and races of the MMO. Once you've built your party, you can engage in one-on-one battles, or you can team up with friends for full-blown melees. You can customize your Action Bar with a wide variety of abilities from the MMO. The Onyxia Raid Set will also allow you to play solo or cooperatively against either a player-controlled Onyxia or an automated version of the black dragon.

When the game launches:

You will be able to buy a fixed two-player Starter Set and booster packs.

* Each booster pack will contain three random figures. All three figures will be from the same randomly selected faction (Alliance, Horde, or Monster).

* Starter Sets will contain four fixed miniatures, two Horde and two Alliance, dice, character cards, customizable action bar cards, six UBase™ miniature bases, one two-sided map, six dice, one rulebook, and a checklist of Core Set miniatures.

In a sudden vertigo-like deja vu supposition of events, I see a video game launching a miniatures game only months after a miniatures game launched a video game (see Warhammer Online). It almost makes my head spin. For more information and to view the pre-painted miniatures (no more cross-eyed painting with a needle), go to Upper Deck.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
