Share This Post

Wizkids has announced new details about their upcoming Dungeons & Dragons Onslaught tactical miniatures game revealed at this year’s D&D Direct. While the core set has been delayed until January 2023, players will get the chance to preview and demo the game this fall at their local game store and celebrate the launch next year with a kit for in-store events. In addition, two new factions have joined the fray in expansions due out next February: the powerful Red Wizards of Thay and the fierce Many Arrows Tribe!

Choose Your Faction

The Red Wizards faction pack expands your game with a nefarious and scheming faction of powerful spellcasters and their martial allies. Take advantage of a host of potent character abilities, including summoning minions such as skeletons and ferocious shadowy hounds to aid in battle
