Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

It comes with an optional breath weapon head! Awe man, I'm gonna have to snag one now. I almost ordered them last time but swapped 'em for discounted Arcadia Quest minis at the last minute. I like dragonborn figures but don't have any that are tossing a breath attack. I wish they shown it in the pictures.

Notice the bit next to the 2nd dragonborn (red primed package)? That the extra "throwin' breath" head. Yah it was never announced that this one had the extra head. Probably something, they decided to do after all the retail info went out.

A good reason to have yet another Dragonborn Fighter/Paladin.  I wonder how interchangeable it is with their other Dragonborn minis.

Wonder If the alligator is supposed to include a black base...mine didn't

 

But I did get my three dragons and alligator

@Sirithiliel

 

I'll check at my flgs when I get home (out of town now) if he has that one in stock. He suppose to have the COVID19 wave in.

No base. I think the water is the base per se.

Just got the Nolzurs Owlbear and catapult, and am very happy with both (already started painting the catapult, just in time for our siege session on Saturday).

 

Raptors are on the way, too.  I hadn't known that Nolzurs had raptors until last week, and the minis look fantastic!

Has anyone successfully repositioned the wings on the wizkids dragons? I picked up some this week and they have a severe case of being sculpted to fit the blister pack.

You could just paint the bottom of the clear portion, too.

I've not reshaped wings but I have bent a shaft with hair dryer heat accidentally while trying to dry a mini.

I just painted the croc, I based mine on a Reaper 2 inch base,  since I don't like the super thin Wizkids ones.

Had to with the Young Red, and had to do it twice, because it started going back the first time.

 

Boiling water and a full minute the second time, to be sure, then into ice water.

 

Thirty seconds just didn't do it, or maybe the water had cooled too much the first time.

 

Second time hotter and longer.

I had luck with a hairdryer, but be careful: one miniature came unglued in the process. If you want to get rid of the glue this way I'm not sure it's a super consistent technique though.
