The title should give away what you can expect to find here: goblins. Or rather, goblinoids and the creatures who love them. The set comes with a goblin archer, two goblin cutters, and a goblin champion. These three miniatures can be found (unpainted) in The Legend of Drizzt game. It should be pointed out the tiles that come with the set do not perfectly match the underground tiles of The Legend of Drizzt, so while they are physically compatible they don't merge quite perfectly with the Adventure System sets.
With the basics established, the set continues with a wolf and a goblin wolf rider. Apparently Wizards of the Coast has moved away from the term "worg" which in turn was drawn from "warg," the evil wolves named by Tolkien as being in league with goblins. But the affiliation still stands, which explains their inclusion here.
There are also two hobgoblins soldiers, a bugbear berserker, and a hobgoblin sorcerer. The sorcerer does more than sorcery - he summons a horned devil, which is the only explanation for why this figure is in the set. The horned devil is one of two large figures along with the feral troll, who will be right at home in The Legend of Drizzt.Read more ›
Interestingly, I spoke with a friend in Germany just the other night, asking him about the seminal D&D miniature skirmish game that Dungeon Command evolved from. He said they didn't play it anymore, that his friends had picked up the DC system and were quite engaged with it. There are several likely reasons for that. While DC retains the cool minis, it takes the skirmish and gives it an easy to grasp depth and nuance. Not only do you push around some lovely plastic but it brings storm clouds of strategic and tactical brainstorming, which is what gamers are really after. Games are quick, engaging, and ultimately satisfying, providing the feeling that whether you won or lost, there is a game system here that you can sink your front teeth into.
Order cards introduce a variety of options and counter options for players and their minions. Deployment creates an ebb and flow of battle as each commander's strength of command determines the number of creatures deployed. And what I like, it doesn't always have to be one on one; creatures can assist each other with a particular attack when they band together.Read more ›
Bonus... the minis are pre-painted, so one less step to be able to use them and the map tiles fit with descent and DnD.
OK game... better when used as a DnD or Descent expansion pack
I play DC with a friend, we have 4 boxes (haven't bought the one with the Ogre as big figure), and this box is really cool, other than the Undead one I would say that this is the toughest to play against.
Just the Devil figurine and creature card are extremely difficult to kill. Order cards are a little unbalanced.

Great painted figures and a great game. Comes with extra Monster cards made just for the Dungeons and Dragons board games like Castle Ravenloft.Published 11 months ago by V. Andrews
I purchased this for the miniatures and the map tiles more than for the game itself. The quality is great, but one corner of a map tile has some damage. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Joshua Oakes
