The End of D&D Minis

It looks like Wizards of the Coast is discontinuing its support for the D&D Minis skirmish game.  They’ll still be making miniatures to support role-playing, but they won’t include skirmish rules any more.  My wife and I started playing the game after they updated the rules only about half a year ago.  We had a lot of fun and amassed a small collection of the minis.

For actual role-playing, I’ve never used miniatures.  When I used to DM in-person, it was before I had enough available money to buy minis, so we used paper-board tokens, and now my gaming group is scattered across the country so we use MapTool on the computer.  So I don’t really have any reason to keep buying minis after Demonweb’s release later this year.
