Deamonweb has Objects!??! 5 Years, 11 Months ago  
I went onto the D&D page for the first time in many months, and saw they were having some Previews of the new minis, so i went looking. Some of the Uncommons i like, but was suprised by this preview from the 18th of last month , namely the deathcap it's an OBJECT!

Deathcap

This figure marks a departure from previous creatures. Most of the miniatures have represented monsters, but this set has a new class -- objects. The Deathcap mushroom follows the Living Flaming Sphere and Animated Statue as miniatures that have an increased usefulness in the roleplaying game. There are a lot of options -- general dungeon dressing is the most immediate use. These could represent doomspores, a hazard found on page 88 of the Dungeon Master's Guide. While out of the scope for this preview article, I can imagine these deathcaps being used after a failed skill challenge in a dungeon where the PCs tried to bypass a growth of shriekers.

For the miniatures battle game, the Deathcap changes the battlefield. Instead of moving around like a creature, the immobile Deathcap is placed in a victory area. There, it affects the creatures around it, either granting additional victory points or additional poison damage, depending on whether it is in your victory area or your opponent's.

I'm looking forward to reading the response to this creature. I see it as a figure you're either going to love or hate. There are three or four figures in this set that could easily be used in the RPG as things other than monsters, but only this one is explicitly defined as an object in the miniatures battle game.

I so want about uhm 8-10 of these for my Caverns!

I'm all for having deathcap mushrooms. Now if they had some shriekers, that would definitely please us old school gamers.

:D

Huhm... i hope there are a few more things that are Terrain friendly ish, this makes me hope so but not sure "There are three or four figures in this set that could easily be used in the RPG as things other than monsters, but only this one is explicitly defined as an object in the miniatures battle game.
It's the "other than monsters", but uh a bartender and a Civlian are very RPG freindly and not monsters... So the 4 things might not be objects. I seem to remember in an upcomming set there was a slot for "non combatant" it might be this one will go looking later for the place i saw it (think it was D&DM spoliers)....

Yup found it, but it's not Deamonm web it's the next set Feywild that has the noncombatant... :(

But looking at the set i am gussing the Human Bandit, Spire Top Drake, and this red cap are three that could be things of the "4" (though there are still 20 or so not shown so maybe not)



Finally got some more Kruthik's i liked those (as SW monsters mind you) and glad to see some common and uncommon in them... now if they would just make that darn Phargion I'd have something to use as a Chollcoid in SW.

oh and more stirges for the stirge likers...

They would make me so happy if they'd release a commoner in every set. A whore, a bard, a blacksmith, an inn keeper, a tax collector more farmers, etc.

-I would LOvE a commoner in every set, i'd buy a set box of commoners, i want non combats.

Mega minis has also gotten some of my cash for thier commoners, but as well mine are unpainted.... i have all of their Sci-Fi on my watch list at his E-bay store as i would love to have them but two things make me always not buy them.
1 not painted,
2 metal...

i just like the ease of painted plastic...


Darn you reaper you have the line to make these but just can't be bothered to increase production to actually make some new minis.
