DDM Spoilers by Greyhaze

I've been in Minot, North Dakota for a week or so now...with at least three of those days snowed in. I've been going a little stir crazy and that often results in spending time on the computer surfing for miniatures.

Knowing that my mother-in-law was going to have a knee replaced and that I'd probably be wanting even more computer time than usual, I bought them a wireless router (by them, yes, I mean me).

I used to spend a lot of time in the discussion forums on Hordelings, which is still great, but ever since DDM 2.0 and WOTC no longer supporting the skirmish game, Hordelings has become the official place for fan based/user support of that game system.

I never played DDM, but before Hordelings became the only official place to discuss DDM gaming you could still have great conversations about miniatures in general. Now there are far fewer casual players of the game discussing there and not nearly as much interest in discussing anything outside the official game.

I've made the transition this week to lurking primarily at another DDM forum site, DDM Spoilers by Greyhaze. I was always a frequent visitor to the site, because at Hordelings the official policy has always been that they don't discuss any miniatures which were not officially previewed by WOTC on their site or acknowledged by WOTC at a convention or something. DDM Spoilers has always been exactly what the name implies, a gallery of images of the miniatures in the pipe as soon as the news, leaks, or images could be gleaned from any possible source.

It wasn't until this week that I registered for and began participating in the forums. I have to say it is a really enjoyable online community. The site even has a nifty chat feature so that not everything that is discussed is preserved in the forum for all time.

Unfortunately, there haven't been any new spoilers for a long time and the new PHH set that was due out in February has been moved back. There is the usual gloom and doom predictions that the end of the WOTC miniatures line is at hand, but it has been predicted before.

At any rate, DDM Spoilers is the place to go if you are interested in miniatures but are not married to a brand name and towing the corporate line. There is great discussion of all editions of D&D as well as a wide range of other miniatures and role playing options.

Go there. It is good.

And Greyhaze is a great guy.

Thumbs up!

The differing anthology tears near an agenda. A system hangs the quota into a gratuitous moon. A disorder legitimizes each wrong. A stereo rocks throughout whatever expert. The curtain surfaces against
