Gale Force 9 is going to be making a new line of minis based on the Dungeons & Dragons world. Their first sets will be based around the “Rise of the Underdark” setting that WotC is promoting this fall.

From the announcement:

Today it gives us great pleasure to announce the upcoming release of a new line of products in support of Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeons & Dragons brand.

We have been given the opportunity to bring to life a series of D&D miniatures models, the likes of which the world has never seen.

The Dungeons & Dragons Collector’s Series is a line of high quality, unpainted, limited edition resin miniatures sculpted by some of the best names in the industry.

We’d like to shine the spotlight on three product configurations.
1. Monsters (something big)
2. Duels (two creatures)
3. Adventuring Parties (groups of creatures)

Our current plan is to release two limited edition products each month beginning this fall.

The initial series of releases will highlight the Underdark theme and focus on all manner of denizens you may find there. Including:
· A Purple Worm
· Drow Raiding Party
· Lolth & Eclavadra
· Illithid Raiding Party
· A Beholder Eye Tyrant
· Lolth In Spider Form

The Dungeons & Dragons Collector’s Series will evolve to mirror themes brought to you by Wizards of the Coast, with miniatures that bring your story to life.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    These actually look surprisingly good. It’s just the word ‘limited’ sets off some alarm bells in my head regarding the pricing… Ah well, we’ll see.

    You lost me at “limited edition.”

  • deedoublejay

    This is the first time GF9’s done minis, right? Talk about jumping in with both feet.
    Not a fan of limited edition and I’d prefer square bases that correspond with the creatures’ respective size categories in-game.

    Limited Edition, like the word ‘new’ on a box of detergent.

    It doesn’t matter. They’ll do as many as they do. Who knows how popular they will be. Non-painters have a world of pre-painted toy models to use. How many D&D people want to paint minis and want to buy these, beyond what they already get from Reaper and other companies? I’m sure the number isn’t zero. It is just a question of if it is enough to matter.

    Remember the GF9 is owned by Battlefront miniatures, who produce the Flames of War line. They have a huge depth of talent for creating minis. Flames of War is second only to Games Workshop is volume of sales of minis. We can expect to see some great minis here.
