It’s a Tyranny of Dragons! Reviewing the new D&D Miniatures

Nerds on Earth takes a look at the Tyranny of Dragons D&D minis and gives you their thoughts on the situation in this review.


From the post:

So…I won’t follow the anonymous internet commenter and describe the D&D Icons of the Realms: Tyranny of Dragons miniatures as blisteringly sexy, but I will spend the next 700 words giving you a quick review of the new D&D miniatures.

    Wow, really? The sculpts are amazing? What are we comparing them to because the scuplts look like standard product for PPP to me.

    The article is right, however, in that many of the paint jobs look like a 4 year old came at them with their water colors. I don’t know about Pathfinder miniatures, but I really don’t see any good PPP paintjobs in the set.

    Who knows, however. I see a lot of people willing to drop $16 on a booster pack these days as fans. I wouldn’t. I think collectable miniatures were always a way for companies to get you to pay more for less. But to each there own. If I owned a game store, I’d sell these like soda in a school until all my customers were breaking out in white heads. 🙂

      Well, it’s probably a 12 year old Taiwanese or Chinese kids painting these things- and they probably make US$0.05/model painted, so…

      The sculpts aren’t bad- we are just spoiled by some of the great stuff that’s out there. Considering that these models are US$20-$30, come pre-assembled and pre-painted… I’m not going to complain too much.

      You can always repaint them.

    The bigger the model, the better the sculpts so far. Still look like PPP sculpts. The Frost Giant and Dragons are acceptable, the Elven troops look like arse.
