What Are D&D Miniatures?

The D&D Miniatures line features hundreds of ready-to-play miniatures from the Dungeons & Dragons universe. You'll find heroes, villains, and monsters of all descriptions. You can play out furious battles, add the miniatures to your roleplaying sessions, or trade and collect the miniatures set by set.


Miniatures represent heroes and monsters: warriors, wizards, dragons, demons, ferocious beasts, and terrifying undead. Each miniature is at 30mm scale. They range in size from Tiny to Huge. All are fully assembled and painted. Here are some samples, but you can see the entire range in the gallery.

Medium Huge Small Large

Stat Cards

Each miniature comes with a two-sided stat card.

Skirmish: One side has the creature's description for skirmish combat. Each creature's strengths, weaknesses, and special abilities are spelled out. Some miniatures are champions, and they improve the fighting ability of the other creatures in their warbands.

Roleplaying: The other side of the stat card has the creature's description for D&D roleplaying. You can drop these creatures right into your next D&D roleplaying session.

Epic: Some figures have Epic stats. These are very powerful creatures that are especially useful in high-level games.
