Dogfights & Dragons

Word of an interesting new miniatures game coming out: Dungeons & Dragons: Attack Wing.  This will be an aerial combat minis game by WizKids (which will also produce a new line of prepainted D&D minis), using the same game engine as Star Wars: X-Wing and Star Trek: Attack Wing.* 

Here are some tidbits gleaned from a Q&A with WizKids on Reddit:
  • "We can confirm that we are doing an Dungeons & Dragons Attack Wing game, which will use the same game engine as Star Trek: Attack Wing."
  • "Unfortunately, we can't give more detail than to say that it will have a similar product configuration to our Star Trek: Attack Wing game. We'll be revealing a bunch of information about our D&D Attack Wing game at the GAMA trade show in Las Vegas this March. Stay Tuned!"
  • "We're also doing a dragon-based dogfighting game using the same engine as our Star Trek: Attack Wing game. So yes, dragons of all shapes and sizes."
EDIT: Here's an article with prices for the game.

I definitely want to play this Dungeons & Dragons dogfighting game!

*FYI, WizKids publishes the Trek game, while Fantasy Flight Games publishes the Star Wars version that uses the same game engine. Not sure how that came to be, or who first came up with it.

...I kept waiting for the punchline... O_O

If this results in some new aerial and mounted miniatures, I'm all for it!
