I've just started to play that game with my 5 year old and he REALLY like it. I want to use miniatures instead of the card one. But the one I have are too big for the board (I have the 2012 version). I have D&D Wrath of Ashardalon / Ravenloft and Zombicide Black Plague, I want something smaller.

Do you have any ideas/suggestions of what to take?

Thanks!

Hi Mathieu,

I agree with replacing the horrible cardboard playing pieces that were produced in the two last versions of this classic game. You could look to see if anyone owns or is trading parts from The Classic Dungeon or The New Dungeon!. One of those two came with little red minis that could be painted in the respective colors of the characters/classes used in the near versions of the game. On a side note, there are some rule enhancements, additional characters and chamber cards the have been added to the forums of the different dungeon games that you may want to add into your play sessions, if you find that your son is getting tired of the regular rules. The content adds more depth to the game without becoming too complex for younger players.

Good luck with your search!

EDIT

The Classic Dungeon is the version that came with minis.

Whats the scale/size of the 5e D&D minis from WizKids? Those just might fit and the legends pack came with a good assortment. You could possibly re-base them if the bases are too large.

Heroscape minis are too large unfortunately. Though the D&D ones might just fit... Not sure.

What you need are older 25mm minis from Ral Partha.

If you have a game store in their area, check to see if they have any assorted D&D pre-painted miniatures. When I started playing Dungeon with my 6-year off son we hit the local comic/game store and he picked out a handful of heroes (and a couple monsters) from their bin of (used/opened?) D&D minis - I think they charged us between 50 cents and two dollars each.

Ok after some research/suggestions, my the best choice is to order some miniatures from Reaper (the Bones serie):
http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones

But I'll wait to see if my kid like the game enough.

I've checked for the pre-painted D&D, but where I am (Quebec), it cost too much if I want 8 miniatures of each class.

And meanwhile I found some old Ral Partha metallic miniatures that I will paint. (but I only have 6 of 8)

Thanks for the suggestions!

I can't tell from Scott's pic if you want 15mm or 28mm miniatures.

Cave Troll has miniatures smaller than 28mm, so, if you think you'll like the game, you can use its miniatures. BTW, If you play roleplaying games, or want a library of generic fantasy 28mm miniatures, Reaper Miniatures will have a KS later this year for its Bones figures.
