WizKids is working away on some great new models for Young Adventurers to play with when they get stuck into the likes of Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder. See what you make of their first set of kids!
All of the miniatures will come as pre-painted heroes, ready to go out of the box. Whilst obviously here we’re seeing the 3D renders one hopes they’re going to make these look bright and inviting for younger players.
There also looks to be a good mix between the boy and girl models that we’re seeing and hopefully, much like with their adult D&D line, we’ll see variations on the classes for both boys and girls.
The models are looking great and I love that they have also included Companion Beasts for all of the models giving them something else to get invested in. I really like the design choices they’ve made too with all of the characters showing off fun and happy expressions which mean a lot!
With the images of the old D&D cartoon still burned into the mind of most of us heading into our thirties and older it’s great to see something like this come to life as it scratches a bit of a retro itch and should help bring new gamers into our world.
Overall, I think this is a superb idea and I can’t wait to see what the models look like. Even with a few touch ups here and there to the paint schemes by parents, or the kids themselves, this could be a lot of fun.
What do you think?
