Nice.--Thanks for the details. :)
I'm hoping for crossover appeal, too!
As an avid Heroscape player, and an on and off D&D player, I hate the D&D heroscape stuff. I like D&D, as a pen and paper role-playing game. Heroscape is a tactical minis combat game. They are seperate entities. Its a thinly veiled attempt by WOTC to try and recruit more D&D players, thus taking a dump on heroscape. WOTC only cares about Magic and D&D, and this move proves it.
