From the announcement:
We often receive feature and product line requests from you, our beloved players, and one such request that came up frequently was the desire to have high quality, yet affordable, unpainted miniatures. As a leader in the pre-painted miniatures market, we decided it was time to do something. Last year we announced that we would be launching a brand new line of unpainted miniatures. These minis were going to be made the “WizKids way”, high quality with great attention to detail, yet affordable for everyone. Our way also includes bringing on board fantastic brands that we all know and love in addition to offering exclusive characters and monsters that tug at all of our heart strings.
The initial launch of WizKids Unpainted Miniatures lines brought the heroes and monsters from your RPG adventures to the tabletop like never before. After the premier of our unpainted lines, we were so overwhelmed by the positive feedback and reviews we received, that we couldn’t wait to do it all over again!
Today we are excited announce our plan to bring previously unavailable and long sought after creatures to our Dungeons & Dragons unpainted miniatures line, Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures.
Prepare to bring new races like the dragonborn, tiefling and genasi into your clan or customize your displacer beast, beholder or even Demogorgon to terrify the adventuring party with a plot twist. Now your characters and monsters can be as unique and creative as the adventure itself.
But that’s not all! Also plan to see the addition of fantastic unpainted, pre-primed, scenery pieces added to our Item Packs, available this Fall. Starting with the exclusive Dungeons & Dragons Ezmerelda’s wagon and plans for dozens of beautifully crafted terrain pieces, including a full campsite and more to come! With all of this great content releasing later this year, why let your paints dry up waiting for lesser quality, generic scenery pieces to come out from any other sources?
