Here’s what they had to say on the specifics of the new range…
“The initial pre-painted sculpted miniatures will focus on token creature card favourites, adding a premium touch to the player’s tabletop experience while the board game will pull from the original trading card lore. Players will play as Planeswalkers, exploring the landscape of Dominaria as they establish connections to their mana sources, gathering power before their opponents do and building their hand of spell cards.
“We’re introducing a long-time, beloved brand to an all-new medium,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “Producing high-quality miniatures and bringing to market captivating board games is at the heart of WizKids. We could not be more excited to extend our relationship with Wizards of the Coast with Magic: The Gathering.”
The new miniatures line and board game are set to release in Fall 2018.”
This sounds like it could be rather neat. It would be fun to see them design some of the unpainted miniatures for folks to pick as well so they could paint up some of their favourite Planeswalkers for their role-playing games perhaps.
What do you make of the news?
