Pre-Painted Plastic Miniatures

I haven't been much of a fan of this new era of Dungeons and Dragons miniatures. I'm from the old school lead miniatures from Grenadier that never looked anything like the character you created, but you were able to paint them up yourself and many of them had backpacks as true adventurers should. But because I am quickly becoming a fan of the new Dungeons & Dragons game, I decided to pick up a box of the latest set of minis (Lords of Madness). I have to say that today, I am glad that I did, because I pulled an Elder Blue Dragon (very rare) and it is easily one of the finest looking figures that Wizards has produced so far. And just to make things a little more satisfying - eBay and many of the online retailers are pricing this one out anywhere from $45 to $60! Ya gotta love that.


  1. Awesome find!

    I get a good many D&D and Heroclix figs for use in RPG games. Some stink, some are really good, and on the resellers you can usually get most of the good ones pretty cheaply.

  2. Someone recommended late edition Mage Knight. I'm going to check them.

  3. late edition mage knight and mk dungeons (Pyramid one and Dragon one) are pretty cool.
