Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

No stirges yet?

 

Those would be given a nice welcome in my game table. While I was able to grab a handful of the Reaper metal ones from the Boneyard at ReaperCon, (the ones on the stalagmites) having other options would be. Especially with prepainted ones commanding way to high for what it is prices.

 

It would be nice to see a "workhorse" wave of creatures.  A actual Hook Horror would be nice as well (I mean we got the Umber Hulk in a earlier release). I'm just hoping for the PC races but put them in uncommon classes (no half-orc barb or fighter combos,  or goliath martial classes, we have plenty of those for example).

Stirges are one of those critters where you sometimes need a whole slew of them at a time. (I seem to recall a Frog God adventure where two dozen of them were flitting around and draining blood.)

 

The Auld Grump - oh, the black fly,

The little black fly,

It's always the black fly,

No matter where you go!

I'll die with the black fly a pickin' on me bones,

In north Ontario, high-o,

In north Ontario!

Off topic from the unpainted lines but I'm kind of surprised WizKids never tried to offer any "adventure" bundles where a DM might find all the necessary minis to cover encounters in D&D's published adventures.

It totally makes sense for them to do it (along with Paizo) but I've always have seen some excuse & why we get blind box instead. (thank goodness for the aftermarket single sales*).

 

*which reminds me I need to put a singles order in for next week, missed a couple of minis while on vacation

 

WarLock Tiles Starter Sets – WizKids

After a year of R&D, Wizkids has perfected the dungeon tile.The WarLock Dungeon Tile system solves many of the problems present with other tile systems. The WarLock clips allow players to construct rooms in advance and place them on the table as needed. 1” tall walls make it easier for players to move pieces around in the room as they play. Offset walls provide you with the ability to place figures in any square on the grid, without pesky corners eating into your play area.

I hate to admit it, but these look intriguing.

I like the low walls, and the fact you can prebuilt the rooms for a faster setup, or just to pull out for reveals as the party explores.

I'm not recognizing the minis they're using with the tiles. Are they even Wizkids ones?

 

They look like pieces from the "Wardlings" range to me.

They are - the earth elemental thing is there, and I recognize a couple of others.

I have to agree, especially on the low walls.  It let's you know there's obviously a wall there, but means you aren't dealing with cramped tiny rooms and everyone can see a lot better without having to constantly get up.  I'd suspect moving minis would be a lot easier too... 

 

Now the question is how expensive will it be in Canadian dollars, and will this see the same fate as the Beholder has.. 

 

...And should I put a pre-order in now.... :ph34r:

Personally, I think they're already a bit expensive in US dollars, but I'm not the target market.

 

One thing I will give them credit for is including both DragonLock and OpenLock clips so they can be used with all the 3D printable tiles already available.

The fact that I cannot get a six pack of unpainted stirges is proof to me that the suits, not the gamers, are in charge of what's being produced. Because the suits would put beholders and Drizz't well ahead of stirges. It'd never occur to them that a working DM would cheerfully buy three or four packs of the things.

Further reinforcing that belief is the fact that I can buy a hardback adventure book... I can buy a Map And Handout Pack that goes with that adventure book... I can buy a Special Dice Set that goes with that adventure book.... and in some of the newer cases, I can buy a full sized pirate ship and a sort of Mad Max Hell Car Vehicle, even.... (for hundreds of dollars each!)

...but for some reason, I have to go out and buy all the minis separate, if I can find them, and if they actually MAKE the dratted beasts. The stirges are available on the secondary market -- the collectible prepaints have several variants -- but where the hell are the damn blistered, unpainted  STIRGES?

EDIT: It occurs to me that I had this same durn problem with Umber Hulks a while back.
