PostSubject: What are Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures?   Wed May 14, 2008 8:28 am

The D&D Miniatures line features hundreds of ready-to-play miniatures from the Dungeons & Dragons universe. You'll find heroes, villains, and monsters of all descriptions. Now you can play out furious battles, add the miniatures to your roleplaying sessions, or trade and collect the miniatures set by set.


Miniatures represent heroes and monsters: warriors, wizards, dragons, demons, ferocious beasts, and terrifying undead. Each miniature is at 30mm scale. They range in size from Tiny to Huge. All are fully assembled and painted.

Stat Cards

Each miniature comes with a two-sided stat card.

Skirmish: One side has the creature's description for skirmish combat. Each creature's strengths, weaknesses, and special abilities are spelled out. Some miniatures are commanders, and they improve the fighting ability of the other creatures in their warbands.

Roleplaying: The other side of the stat card has the creature's description for D&D roleplaying. You can drop these creatures right into your next D&D roleplaying session.

Epic: Some figures come with a second card giving their Epic stats -- these are very powerful versions of certain creatures that are especially useful in high-level games.

D&D Miniatures Entry Pack

The Entry Pack gives you everything you need to play fast, challenging skirmish battles. You get 12 miniatures, a stat card for each miniature, two double-sided battle maps, a 20-sided die (d20), damage counters, Quick-Start Rules, Advanced Rules, and spell effect template. Special hints for beginners get you playing quickly.

D&D Miniatures Expansion Packs

Each D&D Miniatures Expansion Pack includes eight random miniatures and their stat cards. Use them to build bigger and better warbands, or add them to you D&D roleplaying sessions.

Expansion packs support these sets of miniatures:

  • Harbinger: basic D&D creatures
  • Dragoneye: dragons and more
  • Archfiends: evil beings from the outer planes
  • Aberrations: unnatural monsters and more
  • Deathknell: dead, undead, and more
  • Angelfire: angels, genies, and more
  • Underdark: drow, giants, and more
  • War Drums: orcs, war trolls, and more
  • Blood War: demons, devils, and celestials
  • Unhallowed: fearsome undead, creepy creatures

  • Desert of Desolation: creatures of the remote wastelands
  • Dungeons of Dread: they inhabit a world of eternal darkness

D&D Miniatures Icons
This exciting range of massive monsters features the most iconic Dungeons & Dragons creatures.

With claws and scales and beating wings, with powerful breath weapons of fire, acid, and lightning, few opponents can match the ferocity or evil of these terrifying dragons. Produced in limited quantities, they are premium figures available for only a limited time after each release.
Each iconic dragon comes with

  • One pre-painted dragon on either a gargantuan (4x4) or colossal (6"x6") base;
  • an over-sized, double-sided stat card;
  • a playable encounter; and
  • a full-color poster map of the dragon's battleground.

D&D Miniatures Huge Pack

In addition to the eight miniatures you get in an expansion pack, a Huge pack gives you a super-size miniature. Dominate the battlefield or threaten player-characters with dragons, giants, and more.

Huge packs support two sets of miniatures:

Giants of Legend: mighty dragons, giants, and more
War of the Dragon Queen: dragons, dragonkin, and dragon slayers

D&D Miniatures Fantastic Locations Map Packs
Each Fantastic Locations map pack contains two beautifully illustrated, double-sided battle maps scaled for D&D Miniatures. These maps make ideal battlegrounds for skirmish play. New terrain types and rules for playing on them are included. Each map set also comes with an encounter booklet that includes role-playing encounters for the D&D role-playing game.

D&D Dungeon Tiles Packs
Dungeon Tiles are the perfect accessory for your 3D D&D RPG adventures. Each set comes with six sheets of durable, double-sided, fully illustrated dungeon grids that separate into dozens of rooms, corridors, doors, magic circles, stairs, and other arcane, mysterious dungeon features. All are scaled and gridded to match perfectly with D&D miniatures!

D&D Miniatures Handbook

This hardback book has it all. For your roleplaying games, you'll find new classes, feats, and spells. For your skirmish games, you'll find rules for optional scenarios and campaigns. You can even pull out all the stops and fight big battles with the mass battle rules. And for a change of pace, use the random dungeon system for exciting and deadly dungeon delves.
