A few D&D collectible miniatures details

ICv2 brings the pain – WotC’s new miniatures guy, also named Chris, answers precisely four questions about the upcoming pre-painted, randomly sorted D&D minis game. The most intriguing bit here is there will be some Chainmail figures in the first set, so that investment won’t be rendered worthless for the four or five of you who made it. Also, it’s alleged that the new game will support large battles as well as skirmishes. I don’t know that that indicates anything good for out-of-the-box gameplay, but I could be wrong.
