Following the release of their D&D Silver Anniversary Miniatures and D&D 3.5 Miniatures, Wizards decided to revive the old Chainmail skirmish game, and to go with some industry giants for the sculpts. Some of the Chainmail miniatures were eventually released in the boxes Heroes II and III, Monsters II and III, Dragons I and II, and City of the Spider Queen. Stat cards were included.

This game eventually became the D&D Miniatures skirmish game, and many Chainmail sculpts were turned into prepainted plastic, with the last recognizable one being the Large Ice Elemental (Para-Ice Elemental) in the Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures set #12, Unhallowed.
February 2008, Wizards upgraded the game, changing the appearance of the stat cards. New Chainmail equivalency cards were not supported for the 2.0 game.
In late 2008, Wizards decided not to support the skirmish game any longer, and endorsed the player community taking it over with limited licensing for tournaments. More information on the DDM Guild can be found at The guild has taken steps to ensure the metal Chainmail miniatures will still be tournament legal, and later equivalencies not supported by Wizards will now be supported, as long as the figures appear similar.
