Was out buying essentials yesterday and figured I’d stop at my FLGS not really thinking they’d be open.

Dire Wolf is huge!

Crocodile seems a bit on the small side.

And I was right about the raptors.

Even though they’re smaller the Wizkids ones are nicer sculpts.CB0F5E36-EFE9-43D6-8ED1-D59A3590BC17.thumb.jpeg.1f823dff3fcb5e36529d9e38f194407e.jpeg

 

I didn’t have my beholder handy for a comparison but I’m pretty sure the new zombie beholder is noticeably smaller.

 

Also received the minis from North Star that I ordered for use in my Shadow Deep game: All three minis sculpted by Bobby Jackson.

Cool to see the Nolzur's came out as scheduled. I wasn't sure with the whole 'End of the World' going on right now. Nice minis (I really like those North Star ones).

Found it and wanted to post a comparison for those who might want to order the zombie version online without the chance to see one in person.

As you can see there’s a noticeable difference in the sizes and even in the styles of the two beholders.

 

The zombie version doesn’t come with the transparent eye cover but it does include extra tentacles with spell effects.

 

For $5  the zombie version isn’t a bad deal,  but isn’t as impressive as the original.

I kind of like that it's smaller.  Gives the feel of a shrunken head with is spot on for a certain value of zombie.

I totally agree with this. As far as the sculpt goes, it looks like the 5e MM artwork & of course similar if not the same as the prepainted one.

 

Sounds like our gov'nah is gonna issue a lock down soon, so I'm gonna have to hit the FLGS today & see if they got their shipment in. Did my list for this wave, plenty of goodies but what I really want is the young silver dragon as it'll be used in a upcoming rpg game when we resume game play at the FLGS.

Well, that was vague....

 

Give us some hints!

Well, there was a dwarf, and a Sophie, and a wolfy looking guy, and a couple of chibi minis. I think there was an orc too.

Hit the game store today. The shut down order doesn't go into effect till 1201 tonight but still.  Owner said he wasnt accepting orders right now as well, he isn't essential so he'll be closing after today. 

 

No new Wizkids but he did have something I ordered a few weeks ago:

 

Happy to ordered it from my flgs!
