Goodbye to DDM News

It’s been quite a while (read: months) since I’ve been updating my D&D Miniatures News Site, but it’s time to make official what you’ve all known for some time: I’m no longer in the DDM news game. Indeed, I haven’t bought any new D&D Miniatures for over a year. No longer having a FLGS does that, along with having enough minis for most of my purposes.

I’ve given Blackguard (the current host of the site) permission to do what he wants with the site, so you may find it still evolving into some form or other over the coming months. I wish him the very best of luck with it.

I’d also like to give a special thank you to Jim Goings, the one-time webmaster of 3rdedition.org, who provided hosting for the site during its glory days.

It was a wonderful time. That Mike Donais and Rob Heinsoo spent so much time on the Wizards boards before DDM was released allowed me to gain enthusiasm about the game and provided the spur to creating a site for hosting their comments, and eventually to what became the site to go for D&D Miniatures News.

In later years, the official Wizards site and other websites run by people even more dedicated than me have taken over the load, for which I’m grateful; I don’t feel that there’s going to be that much of a hole.

To all of you who have contributed or used my site: thank you. It was a hell of a ride.

    Thanks for the site Merric. It was a useful source of information in the early days and I think where I first read about a case being a good buy (to get all the uncommons & commons).

    I still have a FLGS, but I think the last case I bought was the last case I’ll buy – I likewise now have more than enough minis.
