Wow thats worse than I thought they could look. It's like they took the Mithril Hall Guard and made an entire series with a paintscheme as poor as that one :(

There are two sets i might get (the ones with the dwarves). But the one with the Goliath is utter trash. The Human Brb is ugly, and while I was never a fan of the Goliath as a D&D species (they were a min maxers dream species) I at least liked the look of the orginal mini and species. I never had problems with new look for 3rd, but the new look for 4th is bleck, itl's just a gray human.

Yeah the dwarves arn't bad. Neither is the goliath barbarian, but the rest are not worth getting.

I tend to agree, though I DO like the look of the two dwarves in the set.

Here are some pics if interested:

That's why I like painting my own. Sadly, I paint like glaciers move, but when I do, the figures look good.

:D

I am an old school loyal d&d fan, but these new minis are just plain bad. Usually I'll buy anything that says d&d on it but I will not get these. A few of the sculpts are ok but most of the color schemes and paint jobs are terrible! I just pray the monster sets are much much better.
