WizKids Announces “WarLock Dungeon Tiles” For RPG Miniatures Environments

WizKids, the industry leader in high-quality pre-painted miniatures, today announced a new line of terrain building miniatures, WarLock Dungeon Tilesreleasing in early 2020!

First previewed at GAMA Trade Show in March, this all-new release will make it easier than ever before for players to create fully immersive environments for their RPG campaigns! WarLock Dungeon Tiles are 2 inch squares and are gridded in order to make it significantly easier to assemble new environments on the fly. Each tile is pre-painted, with two types of terrain, one on each side, adding to the versatility of these excellent pieces.

Additionally, WizKids has come up with a novel solution to the oft-cited problem of walls intruding on grid-space. The exterior walls are offset, and the interior walls are super thin, and can be placed between tiles with ease, preventing obtrusion onto the tiles themselves.

“WizKids WarLock Dungeon Tiles address a lot of the issues with current offerings on the market,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “WarLock tiles are quick and easy to assemble, consisting of tiles and clips which will allow GMs to build complete rooms with walls and working features, are cost effective and available at retail, not just online – allowing for the ultimate player experience for everyone!”

WizKids Joins Forces With Hasbro To Make Miniatures

Tabletop gaming lovers will have some new miniatures coming their way soon, as WizKids just made a big announcement that will transform their business.

WizKids has picked up the licenses for G.I. Joe, My Little Pony, and Transformers from Hasbro to produce miniatures. The company is well-versed in gaming minis, and already produce unpainted and painted miniatures for Star Trek: Attack Wing, Pathfinder, and Dungeons & Dragons. The addition of these properties only strengthen their already diverse portfolio.

Here is the official press release:

WizKids, the industry leader in high quality pre-painted & unpainted miniatures and established board games, announced a new licensing partnership with Hasbro today with the addition of beloved properties G.I. Joe, My Little Pony and Transformers to WizKids’ extensive line of miniatures.

Fans can expect to see their favorite characters first appear later this year in both pre-painted and unpainted formats.

“Much of the WizKids team has grown up with these cherished brands and are thrilled to be bringing them to life with the high definition sculpting processes that our customers have come to love,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids.  

My Little Pony and Transformers products will be available throughout North America.

What this press release does not explicitly say is whether or not this means there are going to be Heroclix or Tabletop games for these licenses. One can presume this would be the case, but until we get the official word we can only speculate.

No details or release dates have been announced yet, and we saw none of these at NY Toy Fair 2019. A first look at any of these miniatures may come as early as SDCC 2019, so fingers crossed our wishes can come true.

“Fantasy Realms” card game coming soon

WizKids is excited to announce the upcoming release of the card game, Fantasy Realms, designed by Bruce Glassco!

As a ruler of a far-away land, each player must create the best card combos by drawing and discarding cards to build the mightiest realm in the world. You might choose to build up a massive force with army cards to sweep all before you. Or perhaps your kingdom will thrive in the mountains using caverns for shelter or jungles for protection with land card combos. The choice is yours, for no two realms will ever be the same.

Designed for 3-6 players, this combo-licious card game allows players to choose to draw from the deck or discard pile to create the best hand possible. You can only have 7 cards so choose wisely as the game ends when there are 10 cards in the discard area. Aim for the highest score to win the game and become the ruler of the realm.

Fantasy Realms will be available in limited quantities this June at Origins Game Fair and will be released in stores in August. Pre-order your copy at your friendly local game store today for $19.99!
