My initial thought upon pulling Sting of Lolth and Heart of Cormyr from the shipping box was that the game boxes themselves are nowhere near as cheap as they've been made out to be. While the quality of the storage box isn't as high as say Castle Ravenloft, it's still of a very sturdy make and will not be as easily destroyed as I had feared. Not only is the box good, but so is the actual storage system which holds the game components. Everything has its place, and once sorted and closed everything remains where it's placed.
Anyone who's played or collected D&D miniatures before will see some familiar faces, albeit with new makeovers. If you happen to own the D&D Adventure System Games you'll definitely see some old friends return in the Sting of Lolth and Heart of Cormyr, but boy howdy they've never looked better.Read more ›
Dungeon Command: Heart of Cormyr: A Dungeons & Dragons Expansion Pack (D&D Miniatures Product)
As with that game, Dungeon Command: Sting of Lolth can be played stand-alone or with Cormyr for a much broader set of play options.
Minis: Sculpts are great and its very nice to have the large Umberhulk figure. I'm pleased that Wizards included this iconic figure in the set. Compared to Cormyr, I found the choice of humanoid sculpts to be a bit less varied and interesting, the paints to be less dramatic and perhaps a notch down in quality. Even then, they are better than most of the random packs that I've purchased.
Gameplay: The Order and Creature cards provide a unique and varied play experience compared to the Cormyr game. Cormyr includes creature abilities that tend to allow you to shield or heal other creatures. By contrast, Lloth relies more on Order cards to interrupt attacks. In Magic the Gathering terms, this plays a bit more like a Blue Interrupt deck compared to Cormyr's White Blocking and Healing deck. They balance each other well, straight out of the box. In my first game with my daughter, she won with 1 morale left after the tide turned three times during the game (bring in the reinforcements!).
A correction to the product description - there are two Commander cards in the game box.
Once again, the minis and tiles are compatible with the Adventure Series board games.Read more ›
Wizards has found considerable success in adapting the 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules to the board game market with the Adventure System, a distribution channel long overdue given that the company is owned by Hasbro. Dungeon Command heralds Wizards' return to the miniature market as its own skirmish game, as game pieces for other Adventure System board games like The Legend of Drizzt...and oh yeah, for tabletop role-playing games.
Instead of being released in random packs, you know exactly what you get with Dungeon Command. Sting of Lolth consists of a drow wizard, assassin, blademaster, and priestess, two house guards, a shadow mastiff, two demonweb spiders, a giant spider, an umber hulk, and a partridge in a pear tree! Ahem, no sorry, the last component is a...drider?
As D&D miniatures supporting a tabletop role-playing game campaign this is a good spread - any Dungeon Master utilizing the drow will need a priestess for the matriarchal drow society and her spider minions. What's curious is the inclusion of the half-drow/half-spider driders (see what they did there?), who are considered abominations by the drow and highly unlikely to be part of a warband.Read more ›

Good game. You may want to have a friend with another set, but it's a very solid tactical strategy game. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Michael Renney
Honestly, the game itself is not for me (it's a tactical game, and I prefer dungeon crawlers) but it is fun to play and it allows me to expand my DnD board games and my Descent:... Read morePublished on July 22, 2014 by Johnny in Texas
It is a decent game. My 9 year old son and I played it, and it was fun. Only thing is you really need two different game boxes. Read morePublished on May 20, 2014 by Joe
This is another pack for the Dungeon Command skirmish battle system. For the most fun and balanced battles, you should have a minimum of two of the Dungeon Command packs. Read morePublished on March 14, 2014 by Jason G
