So out of curiosity I started to look into the game that was made after Wow. From what I read and hear, the rules and game mechanics are actually pretty impressive. Theres spells and abilities such as polymorph, turning one of your opponents units into a sheep for a few turns. Or some warriors have the taunt ability, meaning if their in base to base with an enemy, the enemy must attack them rather then maybe a less armored unit that he would rather attack. Theres tons more but obviously cant all be listed here.
One major thing I've heard as a disadvantage is the mini's aren't painted well, but us wargamers can obviously solve that. Also It wasn't advertised very well to people outside the wow community, which is a shame.
But all in all...with 40k, Fantasy, & Monsterpocalypse on our plates I don't think theres any room at all for another gaming system..just yet anyway
I also seen that privateer press makes a few other miniature games, their advertised in the back of our Monsterpocalypse rulebooks, they look pretty neat.
O and don't forget...I chomp NY is on its way

BY heard, you mean what I told you while we were playing? lol
I'm actually surprised, I heard about Monsterpocalypse and WoW at the same time and honestly expected WoW to have the advantage.
The system is based off a "clock" system, where every move you do adds "ticks" to your figures clock and when the game clock and your figure's clock match it gets a turn. Pretty neat sounding, but I havn't seen it in action yet.
And yes, the paint jobs are horrible. At 60mm scale you'd think I could get a little more definition than pale blob for a face.
I have a few other problems with the game, maybe once i actually play it i'll write a review or something

I haven't played the game but I've seen the minis. Not only are they badly painted. (one warrior/paladin had a bad case of the caffeine eye) but also its a cheep plastic. It seems to warp and bend easily. Thats no bueno.
