WizKids have a new set of D&D Icons of the Realms miniatures, letting you fill up the game board to explore Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage.

In the city of Waterdeep rests a tavern called the Yawning Portal, named after the gaping pit in its common room. At the bottom of this crumbling shaft is a labyrinthine dungeon known as Undermountain, domain of the mad wizard Halaster Blackcloak who has seeded his lair with monsters, traps, and mysteries. This set of collectible figures perfectly represents many of the monsters and villains found throughout the 23 levels of Undermountain detailed in Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage.

This new set of forty-four figures are randomly sorted and can be picked up standard booster packs, letting you scratch that blind-buy itch if you happen to be one of those people for whom the search is half the fun of collecting.

A lot of people seem to have mixed opinions of pre-painted miniatures. The effect will rarely be as good as a piece you have painted yourself, but they do allow you to build a quick collection of effective miniatures with which to fill your adventures and WizKids models have been going from strength to strength in terms of quality.

As well as the booster sets of figurines, WizKids have also announced a terrain pack in the form of Halaster's Lab Premium Set.

This set gives you a varied selection of features with which to decorate a dungeon and make it more interactive for the players.

Now, once again, I feel there are better options out there when it comes to dungeon terrain. However, these are pre-painted, making them a useful resource for busy gamers.

Having recently played a game using Room 17's Tenfold Dungeon sets, I could see this fitting in well with that to make a cool gaming environment.

D&D Icons of the Realms: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage: Revenge of the colons is set to release in March this year.

What is your opinion on Wizkids' pre-painted miniatures?
