A couple of new additions to this classic game released recently. The first is a set of 6 heroes, designed as starter minis for the D&D RPG, but of course, working in yeoman fashion for tabletop play. That would be a: Gold Dwarf Cleric, Human Ranger, Sun Elf Wizard, Northland Fighter, Lightfoot Halfling Rogue and Wood Elf Druid. Nothing especially new and exciting here although the sculpts and paintwork are solid good and the Wood Elf Druid is a new figure for WizKids.



Paint schemes are different from previous versions. Personally, I am a fan of new paint schemes and the difference is refreshing to the eye when I play. Stat cards, per usual, are either available at the DDM Guild (https://box1055.bluehost.com/~ddmguil1/) or in the works.



Second thing is a Monster Manual, Volo’s Guide to Monsters, also from WK. I have several of the older Monster Manuals as well a copy of the Miniature Handbook and this is a new and welcomed detailed addition to my library.



Remember that the single-most salient thing about the D&D miniature game is a spotlight on the creatures themselves. Reading up on their racial role, characteristics, history and place in D&D cosmography is a sweet way to increase your pleasure and success when playing the game.

Thanks for the review! It's interesting that they released a new starter set with one extra mini vs. previous starter. I wonder if the price point is the same. Strange to repackage it, but maybe the first was successful, so that's a good sign.

DDM stats for the original starter:

Lots of good options there!

And the Wood Elf Druid is available in here:

Excellent champion powers!

Enjoy!
