World of Warcraft Miniatures

I get the occasional email from readers and yesterday I received one from someone called Ben telling me to check out a video on YouTube about the World of Warcraft minis game. I’m assuming he was Ben Gonyo, the creator of the movie, but he didn’t tell me his surname so I can’t be sure. The YouTube video had a link to Gamers Film, a website promoting a “humorous documentary film exploring the obsessed fan base of MMORPG games like World of Warcraft”. I watched the trailer on the site and it’s looks pretty interesting and funny.

Until I got the email I had no idea that a WoW minis game even existed although I wasn’t surprised to find out considering it’s got it’s own CCG too. Curiously enough though, my wife also mentioned the game to me today completely out of the blue as she’d seen the game being sold in a big craft shop and thought it was funny how it was being marketed to adults (she has absolutely no understanding of why grown men like computer games and toys – bless). I’m not sure if the game just had a big release or something – although I loved CCGs when I was younger and was hugely into them a few years ago, I’ve never had any interest in miniature games, part of the reason being that I think the paint jobs on them look rubbish.

Anyway, enough of my yacking, here’s that WoW minis video:

If you’ve played the minis game, let me know what it’s like. I’m curious to hear more about it.

    I’ve recently discovered an interest in miniature games… but more mechanically rather than actually digging in and playing. The lame models always put me off, too, but now that I’m more interested in game design, they are intriguing me more.

      I would probably give mini games a shot if I had some people to play against but I don’t really like the idea of carrying of a ton of figures around with me. The thing I like about TCGs was that you just needed your deck of cards to play, that was it. Also yeah, the paint jobs on some of these figures are utterly terrible.

        Aye, I’ve always mentally sorted miniature gaming with tabletop miniature railroads. Both are fascinating and deeply creative in their own way, but they take an inordinate amount of time and space. When it’s a game that requires other people and all of *their* gear, well… it’s a bridge too far for me to cross when I have a full time job and family that are infinitely more important.

        I still find it intellectually appealing, but not practical in any way shape or form.

    Old miniatures gaming vet here. The game is “OK” but honestly I still prefer a good balanced game of Heroclix

    There’s a WoW board game also. It’s actually rather fun.
