4E Stats Leak

Interesting, a stat card for 4th Edition. Looks like the 3E trend back toward the minis/wargaming roots is continuing. It reads almost like a 1974 Chainmail unit card.

Well, sure, expensive minis is the reason why WotC needs them to become as central to the game as possible. They are a better way of parting gamers from their dollars than, say, sourcebooks or adventures. So it makes sense that they will continue to make them.

I enjoy the tactical side of minis at a low level, but I'm with the "these green dice are orcs" crowd. I can't be bothered to buy, sort, and organize the things, though I appreciate those who do.

I like minis, both painted metal and plasticrack, but one of my best RPG purchases ever is Fiery Dragon's Counter Collection CDRom. Every monster in the SRD, tons of PC-types and lots more for you to print out on your inkjet. I can't recommend it highly enough. And for those pesky WotC non-OGL monsters, they put all the art on their website!

This is precisely the challenge Wizards faces: if even dedicated dungeon masters tend to make do without the right minis, who's going to buy them?
