While they are only so so to me here is a link to the Monster or official Dangerous Delves sets and well so so.

What I like is the pre maid cards for the monsters. I guess a person could do those up but thought they would be nice pre made.

The minis have always come with stat cards (first 3.5 edition and now 4e).

I use them pretty much every game (well, the ones with 3.5 cards I do!)

I didn't know that the older cards were cross compatible. I thought up to just recently, 2nd edition skirmish or mini game, they made them the same stats as in the books. Guess it shows what I know.

Yeah - same stats for the fire giant on the card (for example) as in the book.....that's not what you meant?

I'm disappointed in the quality of the paint on the new D&D minis as well. I was expecting the equivalent of some of the rares in the later sets, which had nice paint jobs. Some of these "new" minis are actually reprints with worse paint jobs than the originals!

It looks like Wizards really shot themselves in the foot with these miniatures and abandoning DDM skirmish as it was. I hope it doesn't become a Mage Knight 2e fiasco for them.

On the bright side, it looks like they've saved me a bunch of money and cured me of my plasti-crack habit all at the same time !!!!

The skirmish game was going nowhere, apparently, which motivated the change. From a D&D player's perspective, this is a much better way to go. Instead of buying umpteen random blister packs in the hope of finding a figure for your character, you buy a pack related to your character's power source.

That said, while I like the concept, I do think their sculpts tend to run from pretty decent to downright shoddy.

Fortunately, there are some amazing figures out there from folks like Enigma miniatures. I am sad that Helldorado is being cancelled - their minis are incredible. I'm trying to grab as many as I can before they're all gone.

I just think its funny. I am not bashing WotC. I like their products for the most part. I just am surprised they couldn't put a quick ink wash on them.

Martial Heroes 1: Female Dragonborn Rogue
- Looks like a giraffe standing on its hind legs.

Martial Heroes 2: Male Dwarf Rogue
- About two stripes away from the Hamburglar.

Primal Heroes 1: Human Barbarian
- I didn't know there was a race called a Chipmunk Shifter!

As for the rest, I do not retract my opinion . Especially dishonorable mentions to the goliath, the bumblebee wizard, the bright blue wizard/sorceress thing, and both cross-eyed elves (the one with the scroll and the one with the staff).

Kradlo - where can I get a hold of these?

Thanks!

Fantization carries them, along with a horde of other minis.

I've dealt with them previously, and I've had no problems.

Thanks!

Those are some pretty neat minis, especially the Demon ones. Unfortunately, the ones I wanted are back-ordered.

You say these are being discontinued? Any chance they might get more back in stock, or do you think whatever they have is what is left?
