COMING SOON! DC Comics HeroClix: 15th Anniversary – Elseworlds
With the 15th Anniversary of HeroClix, WizKids is excited to reveal DC heroes in DC Comics HeroClix: 15th Anniversary Elseworlds, coming soon!

Today, we visit an alternate reality featured in DC Comics HeroClix: 15th Anniversary Elseworlds where DC’s Trinity appears quite different from what we’re used to in a world where the cast of Planetary have villainous intentions.

This version of Diana Prince looks a lot different from Wonder Woman in both costume and dial design, but she still packs quite the Amazonian punch for just 40 points. She has the expected keywords of Amazon and Justice League, but she also has Detective and Scientist on this unfamiliar world. Diana Prince’s trait, Investigating Planetary, prevents opposing characters within 4 squares from using Outwit or Perplex as she explores the world of her foes. Plus, she can do a bit of sneaking around with Stealth to help prevent your opponents’ tricks.
AVAILABLE NOW! Best Equip Your Robot to Become the Victor in DiceBot MegaFun
WizKids is excited to announce the release of the card and dice game designed by Jeremy Kalgreen and Chris Volpe, DiceBot MegaFun, available now at your FLGS. 
In DiceBot MegaFun, robots fight for the glory of their human owners. Equip your bot with the parts to power lasers, bombs, drills, and more, as you do battle in rounds of simultaneous free-for-all-combat.
Designed for 2-4 players, this dice-grabbing, weapon-slinging, game of battling robots ends when one player’s robot is the first to receive 3 Victory Medals.

COMING SOON! Unpainted Miniatures – The WizKids Way
We often receive feature and product line requests from you, our beloved players, and one such request that came up frequently was the desire to have high quality, yet affordable, unpainted miniatures. As a leader in the pre-painted miniatures market, we decided it was time to do something. Last year we announced that we would be launching a brand new line of unpainted miniatures. These minis were going to be made the “WizKids way”, high quality with great attention to detail, yet affordable for everyone. Our way also includes bringing on board fantastic brands that we all know and love in addition to offering exclusive characters and monsters that tug at all of our heart strings.
The initial launch of WizKids Unpainted Miniatures lines brought the heroes and monsters from your RPG adventures to the tabletop like never before. After the premier of our unpainted lines, we were so overwhelmed by the positive feedback and reviews we received, that we couldn’t wait to do it all over again!
We are excited announce our plan to bring previously unavailable and long sought after creatures to our Dungeons & Dragons unpainted miniatures line, Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures.

Today we’re taking a closer look at one of the figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Wonder Woman Gravity Feed. Today’s subject is none other than the scarlet speedster himself, The Flash!

Portrayed here in his DC Rebirth costume, this version of Wally West is indicative of his time with the Titans. The 005 version of The Flash is a 60-point piece, has 4 clicks of life, and possesses the Titans team ability. He begins with a trait called Titans Together, which states that if another friendly character healed this turn with the Titans team ability, modify The Flash’s attack value by +1 this turn. He also possesses two special powers – the first of which is called The Speed Force Strengthens Me, appearing on all 4 clicks of his movement dial. This power states that The Flash can use Hypersonic Speed, and when he does, he can use Steal Energy and modify his speed value by +2 – letting him move up to 11 squares!

Some miniatures news from Wizkids….

WizKids Fans,

We often receive feature and product line requests from you, our beloved players, and one such request that came up frequently was the desire to have high quality, yet affordable, unpainted miniatures. As a leader in the pre-painted miniatures market, we decided it was time to do something. Last year we announced that we would be launching a brand new line of unpainted miniatures. These minis were going to be made the “WizKids way”, high quality with great attention to detail, yet affordable for everyone. Our way also includes bringing on board fantastic brands that we all know and love in addition to offering exclusive characters and monsters that tug at all of our heart strings.

The initial launch of WizKids Unpainted Miniatures lines brought the heroes and monsters from your RPG adventures to the tabletop like never before. After the premier of our unpainted lines, we were so overwhelmed by the positive feedback and reviews we received, that we couldn’t wait to do it all over again!

Today we are excited announce our plan to bring previously unavailable and long sought after creatures to our Dungeons & Dragons unpainted miniatures line, Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures.

Prepare to bring new races like the dragonborn, tiefling and genasi into your clan or customize your displacer beast, beholder or even Demogorgon to terrify the adventuring party with a plot twist. Now your characters and monsters can be as unique and creative as the adventure itself.

But that’s not all! Also plan to see the addition of fantastic unpainted, pre-primed, scenery pieces added to our Item Packs, available this Fall. Starting with the exclusive Dungeons & Dragons Ezmerelda’s wagon and plans for dozens of beautifully crafted terrain pieces, including a full campsite and more to come! With all of this great content releasing later this year, why let your paints dry up waiting for lesser quality, generic scenery pieces to come out from any other sources?

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

We provide you with the highest quality canvas possible so that you can use your unique creativity to bring your heroes and monsters life. Our professional sculptors utilize their years of experience, to bring you some of the most detailed miniatures you can find on the market, which means our HD Minis allow for easier and more accurate painting. In addition, all miniatures come in dynamic and exciting poses and are pre-primed and ready to paint out of the box.

VARIETY
There is something to meet everyone’s needs, from heroes and monsters, to beautiful set pieces to help bring your game setting to life. Our unpainted miniatures line is sold at your friendly local game store in the following configurations: Level Packs, Monster Packs, and Item Packs.

LEVEL UP PACKS
Level Up Packs include two highly detailed figures per pack, one standard and one advanced. Advanced characters are equipped with more armor, better weapons and upgrades than the standard characters. Both include many facets and intricate levels of detail for easy hand painting.

Standard characters have decent armor to protect them in battle, but the advanced characters feature improved, exciting and impressive battle armor!

MONSTER PACKS
Monster Packs contain 1-3 miniatures with different poses of a single monster – great for army building!

ITEM PACKS
Item Packs contain scenery and items for detailing adventures. Dozens of new beautifully crafted set pieces are planned for release later this year!

MATERIALS & ASSEMBLY
Customize the look and feel of your characters and campaign like never before with strong yet flexible plastic material that includes both opaque and translucent plastic. All WizKids’ unpainted miniatures come pre-primed and are ready to go directly out of the box! Most miniatures even come pre-assembled, leaving the hassle of additional prep work behind so you can spend more time focusing on painting.

PRICE POINT
Not only are our unpainted miniatures some of the most detailed, they are also some of the most affordable, without sacrificing quality. Many of our packs contain multiple miniatures so you get more opportunities to paint the way you want.

RETAILER CONSIDERATION
We not only listen to our players, but we also value the feedback we receive from our retail partners. As a result, we take careful consideration when designing the packaging, setting the MSRP, and ensuring wide availability of our unpainted miniatures line.

PACKAGING
Our unpainted miniatures line packaging includes a clear plastic window to allow for excellent miniature visibility, and clearly labeled figure names so everyone can see what they are getting before they make their purchase. Packaging also includes a hangtag for easy storage within retail locations.

PRICING
Based on the important feedback we have received from you, we wanted to make sure our unpainted miniatures were affordable and included consistent pricing. We feel we have delivered on this, bringing you quality miniatures at a fair price.

We hope that you love our unpainted line as much as we do!  Order your specialty packs today at your Friendly Local Game Store!
