Dungeons and Dragons Attack Wing Organized Play announced/started!

View the Official Announcement:


Adding Up Your Dice

Don’t forget to check for all your dice bonuses and penalties. Your opponent might not be nice enough to remind you that you forgot to roll a die you were eligible to roll.

For example, let’s say you are using Balagos, you’ve taken a few damage, and you’re attacking an undamaged enemy creature.

Did you charge? +1 attack die.

Did you opponent pivot? +1 attack die.

Balagos has taken more damage than his target? +1 attack die.

So, if you charged, and your opponent pivoted, and Balagos has taken more damage, he gets to roll 8 attack dice!

Did you cast Haste this turn? -1 attack die.

If Balagos used Haste instead of Charge, he gets to choose if he wants to make a single 5 die attack, or two 4 dice attacks.

If his opponent has pivoted, add +1 attack die to each of those attacks. If he’s taken more damage than his target, add another +1 attack die. Now Balagos can decide to make a single 7 die attack or two 5 dice attacks.

Note, however, if you damage the opponent on the first attack so that Balagos no longer has more damage cards, you would not get the +1 attack die on the second roll.

How about equipping Haste and Close Quarters? This means that Balagos bites for 4 dice, then get two Claw attacks at 3 dice (base of 5 -2 attack dice), then another Bite for 4 dice followed by two more Claw attacks at 3 dice.

Again, all of those attacks would be increased if your opponent had pivoted or if Balagos had taken more damage than his target.

But wait, there’s more!

If Balagos teams up with someone with Leadership, he could cast Haste on himself, and then use Charge as a free action when Leadership is used on him, giving him yet another +1 attack die on those six attacks.

Spread the Love

While Close Quarters requires you to make the additional attacks against the same creature, Haste does not! This means you can Bite-Claw-Claw one creature, and assuming you’re in range, Bite-Claw-Claw a second creature.

Balagos tells me this is his favorite combination of upgrades, as it makes it easier to eat troops!

It’s here! It’s here!

The game is out!

Sorry we have not posted anything recently, the game came out and, well, we got distracted for a bit!

So much AWESOME!

So, what did you all pick up?

We got one of everything.  There was only one serious issue, the Dwarven Ballista’s level/release was broken off and loose in the package. I’ll contact WizKids and see about getting a replacement part, which you can also do by visiting:

There were also some minor issues, like Balagos’ wings, so I’ll be using the information Teri Litorco shared in her Dungeons & Dragons Attack Wing – Model Makeovers Video to help Balagos spread his wings a bit!

My favorite sculpt, at least so far, is the Frost Giant. He just looks amazing:


What’s your favorite sculpt?

Teri has a great channel and if you like Dungeons and Dragons Attack Wing, you’ll likely love many of the other videos she posts (including other unboxing videos, painting tips, and more)!

See you in the skies!

Legion Builder Update: Mobile Browser Support

The Legion Builder now includes better support for mobile browsers:


  • Improved mobile / low resolution layout.

New Features:

  • Tap Gesture: Tap a card once to show the card preview, tap again on the green button to add the card to your Legion.
  • Swipe Gesture: Swipe to the right on a card to immediately add it to your Legion.
    • A swiped Upgrade will be added to the first creature in the Legion that can equip it.

I was only able to test this on iOS devices and simulators for other devices, so let us know if you run into any glitches on other mobile platforms.


Legion Builder Updates 11/4/2014

We’ve updated the Legion Builder!

New Features:
– The “Print Legion” button: preview of support for printing Legion Build Sheets (coming soon, when the OPs start).
– Option to filter card list to show only equippable upgrades.

– Switch to upgrades list when previewing an equipped upgrade (not doing so was causing a display glitch).
