The Wild Beyond the Witchlight adventure for Dungeons & Dragons has brought nothing but whimsical delight during its announcement period. Teasing the devious fae and their woodland realm, through the reach of a mysterious red and white striped circus tent. This has got many 5e players thinking about their new characters and the journeys and adventures which can be embarked upon in the new world.

Now, Wizards of the Coast has added to their Wild Beyond the Witchlight releases of the Adventure book and alt cover, with WizKids announcing the D&D Icons of the Realms: The Wild Beyond the Witchlight sets, of the whimsical creature and character miniatures who reside in the world which is set to open this September.

Let's take a look at what kind of beasts exist within this new world!

Without the sourcebook in front of us, it is hard to judge whether this is a world we would like to immerse ourselves in. And the best place to start looking within these new releases is the Witchlight Carnival Box.

The world is certainly interesting, as I find myself looking at creatures within the set past my imagination's reach. When promised dark and twisted vs wholesome and whimsical, a raven being dressed up to the nines in his favourite fairy get-up, was certainly a surprise.

Contained in the set are 11 pre-painted miniatures, by the names of Mister Witch, Mister Light, Northwind and Red, Thaco, Burly, Palasha, Palasha's Tank, Candlefoot, Dirlagraun and Kettlesteam. I am not too sure who is who - matching name to the creature (although I could take a pretty good guess... Burly looks like he is in need of a good cuddle!) - however, I am certain that two very important characters as part of the main plotline can be found inside, being Mister Witch & Mister Light.

Along with the release of the highlighted characters from the upcoming adventure coming in September, there are two Starter Sets available as a way of NPCs for your adventures, looking at the League of Malevolence and the Valor's Call Starter Set, containing 5 NPCs in each blister.

Pre-Painted Brick

Looking to see what other mad and wonderful characters belong in this fantastical world? There are 51 characters to collect, as within a brick there is a set of random monsters and characters waiting to return home, through that circus door and back into the world of the fae.

Gas-Balloon

It is not just character, monster and creature miniatures that are being added to the adventure. there is a means of transport too. As players are going to need a method of transport to get around the mystifying world of Prismeer. And why not a mahoosive Swamp Gas Balloon to aid in your travels? Caution: will probably smell interesting during take-off.

Collector's Edition

Collector's Edition Miniatures Box // D&D Icons of the Realms: The Wild Beyond the Witchlight

If you do consider yourself a collector, you can get your hands on the absolute lot, all contained in a stunning Collector's Edition. This is the first time that Wizards of the Coast have prepped a box that appeals to the collector, who would want all of the 81 miniatures that reside in the box. If that is you, you can get your hands on the absolute lot, including the 51 miniatures in the D&D Set 20 booster/brick release, the 11 minis from both D&D Set 20 premiums sets, the 10 minis from the D&D Set 20 starter sets, 7 promotional miniatures, 2 box-exclusive minis, and a multi-page booklet that works as a checklist, with all the miniatures listed.

So if you are looking at dipping into the world and having all of the miniatures readily available to fill up your table, you can take this box home for a whopping price of $749.

All of these miniatures will be able to join your Wild Beyond Witchlight campaign in October 2021, yet that does not stop you from getting your pre-order on at your FLGS or online at the Wizkids Website. For more images of these upcoming miniatures, be sure to head on over to the WizKids store.
