New d&d phb heroes minis are terrible 5 Years, 4 Months ago  
I am an old school loyal d&d fan, but these new minis are just plain bad. Usually I'll buy anything that says d&d on it but I will not get these. A few of the sculpts are ok but most of the color schemes and paint jobs are terrible! I just pray the monster sets are much much better.

That's why I like painting my own. Sadly, I paint like glaciers move, but when I do, the figures look good.

I tend to agree, though I DO like the look of the two dwarves in the set.

Here are some pics if interested:

Yeah the dwarves arn't bad. Neither is the goliath barbarian, but the rest are not worth getting.

There are two sets i might get (the ones with the dwarves). But the one with the Goliath is utter trash. The Human Brb is ugly, and while I was never a fan of the Goliath as a D&D species (they were a min maxers dream species) I at least liked the look of the orginal mini and species. I never had problems with new look for 3rd, but the new look for 4th is bleck, itl's just a gray human.

Wow thats worse than I thought they could look. It's like they took the Mithril Hall Guard and made an entire series with a paintscheme as poor as that one :(

And WHY do they think all Female Humanoids are Barbie Dolls? And all Male Humanoids GI Joes?
Something tells me, when the NBC execs retired after Star Trek went off the air in 1969, they all went to Hasbro (there's no intelligent life on the other side of the TV screen).
What jerks; do they think we all fantasize about our D&D minis?
'Scuse me, Hasbro, I'M a happily-married man - with a happily-married wife!

Yeah I am not so pleased with the new "heros" minis. The sculpts haven't much detail (auto-cad stuff?) or the paint is applied too thick. It could be a combination of those factors. I am still hoping the Dangerous Delves monsters will be cool. I got to actually see them up close and they looked fairly decent at a con.

have to agree an this from the whole bunch i only like the following sculpts:
- Male Half-Elf Bard (but this is only a repaint from gol, so no need to get this)
- Male Human Wizard (again a rapaint, no need to get this, again)
- Female Eladrin Sorcerer (hey one that i like)
- Male Elf Ranger "Farris Nightbringer" (a must have for me)
- Female Eladrin Fighter (again a repaint)

so i like only 5 sculpts, and from these 3 are repaints that are worse than the original...
i think maybe i'll take the two left if they are offered individually.

and these i consider worse scuplts:
- Male Tiefling Warlock (he has no neck and a silly dagger thingy)
- Male Human Fighter (ne real thing to make him stand out)
- Male Human Barbarian (the face... must i say more)

these three are a no go for me to get bad sculpt plus sloppy paintjob.
The others would be worth getting if the paintjob would have been better,
as is no way for me to lay my hands on these.

I wonder, cause wizards told about better paintjobs in these sets, cause for that
reason they said, they raised the pices.
