Thanks- oh yeah, since then I read the Fiend Folio, it is certainly interesting! I was mainly surprised about this info since as I said, I always associated White Dwarf with Warhammer, I thought the D&D magazine was Dragon.

When I got into D&D in the early 80s, White Dwarf still had lots of D&D stuff in it. I'm not sure when it switched over to mainly covering wargaming, perhaps when Dungeon magazine got big, and the glut of other gaming mags (Polyhedron, Frontiers, etc) there was opportunity with the other crowd?

I've been curious when the D&D content left White Dwarf, too. I was a kid back then, so I was restricted to what my dad brought home on his limited income. I've tracked down a lot of stuff over the years, but never any of the old White Dwarf magazines. I'm not a Warhammer guy, so I was never sure whether it would be worth it for me, just for the nostalgia of it!

Yeah, I keep checking every now and then and nothing. 2 months to go just now, so I hope we get to see some previews soon.

So with 1 month to go and no previews, I tried out something - checking on the Wizkids website.
The html name of the previous Monster Menagerie sub-page was "dd-icons-of-the-realms-monster-menagerie-ii/" so I just added one more "i", and voila!
https://wizkids.com/dd-icons-of-the-rea ... gerie-iii/
The page for the next booster already exists - it is just password protected. I tried out a few obvious tries (Password123... you'd be surprised how many of my colleagues use that :D) but obviously, no luck. Still, this makes me hope that they are getting ready to start the previews soon.

So I found this - same pic of the booster brick we have seen, but the resolution if not bigger, is a bit more... crisp.
I still cannot make out all the words, but to me it seems the greyish bearded humanoid in the top right is a "..... Orc" - maybe a Mountain Orc? - and the red armored humanoid on the bottom left is a "Dragonborn .......".

I strained my eyes a lot but there seems to be two lines of the name (one below the other) and the upper one seems to start with a D. Plus, whatever it is, it has red skin under the armor, and the head seems to have a snout too.
And we already have seen quite a few Dragonborn in the unpainted line, and we know they like to put those into the boosters.

Okay, this raises my interest a bit. The picks made the main figure look like a Huge, but that looks like a Gargantuan. I like this scale a lot better.

Wow, that thing is humongous! Even if it is Huge it hangs off the base a lot - but the bulk alone makes me think Gargantuan.
This looks to be a screenshot from a stream... gotta try and check if I can find it.

EDIT: This might be of interest too - a new book coming, Mordekainen's Tome of Foes, promising stats of a lot of new monsters, especially focusing on conflicts like the Drows and Elves, Githyanki and Githzerai, and especially on the Blood War between Demons and Devils.

I was at best lukewarm on this until put to scale with the characters and ship; now I've warmed up considerably. The ship itself is pretty intriguing.

They used that ship in the previous Force Grey podcast too, when they played Storm King's Thunder, as well as a pretty neat castle tower, I assume one of the players made it. Nice work.
