I predict there being a new expensive rare hitting the Dungeons & Dragons miniatures market. In the latest “Previews” column on Wizard’s site, they showcase the number one most requested mini for D&D: a Gelatinous Cube. Further clarification by one of the D&D designers, Scott Rouse, says:
“I don’t think the picture does it justice.
First the cube comes completely off the base so you can put a medium mini inside.
Second the cube has a slightly iridescent coating on it to give it a bit of oozey shimmer.
We spent a long time trying to make this work. We tried a lot of different materials and it was very hard to get one that was durable, safe, “moldable”, and that look good.
I think you’ll like it.”
It may have taken a while, but the wait is worth it. I might have to buy more of this next DDM set than I was expecting to just to get one. But the question is: how will the new set work, being between two editions of rules?
Hit the jump for the Cube in all its glory. (Thanks, EnWorld)
