D&D Alumni: Minis in the Game
An interesting article that looks into the historical relationship between D&D and miniatures. It is a good read and you might be surprised by the early attempts of implementing miniatures rules in the earlier editions.
There's also an interesting history behind the D&D miniature line that started way before the current generation of miniature products being sold today.
I think this article clears up the notion that D&D originally didn't require miniatures to play but I see that more as a strength of playing D&D rather than a misconception.
Any thoughts on this article?
