Amazon.com has a picture of the box on the order page:

[geekurl=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0786960426/ref=s9_simh_se_p14_d2_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=auto-no-results-center-1&pf_rd_r=8E2FA171810C4E82ABAA&pf_rd_t=301&pf_rd_p=1263465782&pf_rd_i=grumash]Blood of Gruumsh at Amazon.com[/geekurl]

Anybody have any guess as to which miniatures are shown on the box?

Thus far the cover art for these games have been rather literal in showing the features of the mini itself. So the big guy is a mystery since he doesn't match any existing Ogre or Hill Giant. Would be cool if the large creature in this set was the new sculpt.

The orcs are also odd since there are hardly any DDM orc minis that wear helmets.

We can at least expect new paint jobs from the old D&D Mini's, as well as color coordination. There's some variation in the old mini's.

I think there might be an ogre in there as one of the Large choices - big guy and such.

Hopefully we get Hill Giant AND Ogre, that would be some progress towards a DDAS adventure for Steading of the Hill Giant Chief.

Perhaps some of our esteemed Dungeon Command designers will reveal information at GenCon this weekend.

At 00:50, there is mention of an Orc Druid with a Beast-related ability that would work with earlier beasts from other factions.

So that's 1 Orc Druid and at least 1 or 2 beast creatures in this set.

Good grief, that seminar recording is really hard to listen to.

Most creatures in Blood of Gruumsh are new sculpts based on art direction being done for D&D Next.

Orc Chieftain
Ogre (new sculpt)
Orc Archer
Orc Cleric of Gruumsh

Order card example is Beastmaster - beasts deal +10 damage.

One of the commanders has a deployment ability similar to the Shadow Mastiff.

Edit: I misheard, it will be ALL new sculpts.

I wonder if there will be a second large figure besides the ogre. The first two sets look like the included their largest two figures on the cover. Tyranny of Goblins doesn't look like it shows the troll, so I think there is still hope for another large figure. I would love a hill giant, but I would not be shocked if a giant focused faction came later.

If there is another large, I hope it isn't an animal. That said, I would not be shocked if there was a dire wolf.

I'm hoping the animals included are medium sized ( boars maybe), and we get a second large that is more unusual. Maybe a large elemental or some kind of yugoloth.

Yup, a large beast or elemental is very likely since the druid has the ability to summon beasts and elementals next to him.
