The World of Warcraft Miniatures Game is a collectible miniatures game from Upper Deck Entertainment, the creators of the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game. It was released November 11, 2008.[1] A deluxe edition was released December 9, 2008.[2][3] It took two years of development to be finished.[1]

Players will use 40mm scale figures and terrain pieces to simulate battles in all types of settings and scenarios based on the Warcraft setting. Gameplay can be one-on-one, a party vs. party, or one or a party vs. an individual or group of monsters in Alliance, Horde, and Monster factions.[4]

A raid set called "Raid on Onyxia" was planned to allow you to play solo or cooperatively against either a player-controlled Onyxia or an automated, rule-based version of the black dragon.[4] Later, Blizzard announced that they would not renew their contract with UDE, Souls of Vengence Deluxe starter, Starter, and boosters were canceled along with the Onyxia raid set.
