Demonweb Preview 9
Heroes of Demonweb

It's time to bring the Demonweb previews to a close. For the last two months, I've shown an assorted selection of monsters from the set. For this last preview, I show you figures intended to be used as player characters.

Demonweb is primarily designed as a monster set: there are only about a half-dozen characters representing the races in the Player's Handbook. We have a couple of uncommon PCs in the set, such as the Halfling Archer and the Warforged Battle Champion. We want the player character miniatures to look as good as possible, which means some need to be rare: here are the three rare miniatures in the set that can be used to represent a player character.

Autumn Wind Ranger

The inspiration for this miniature can be found on page 93 of the 4th Edition preview book Races and Classes, which came out at the end of 2007. As befitting a ranger, this female elf is painted in autumn colors and her cloak is in the shape of a giant leaf.

Dragonborn Paladin of Bahamut

This dragonborn is intended to be used as a heavily armored paladin. If you look at his shield, you'll notice Bahamut's holy symbol -- while this may flavor the use of the miniature, it's still a fine figure to use as a fighter or a warlord in addition to a paladin.

Minotaur Warrior

What is this guy doing in an article for player characters? Earlier this week, D&D Insider put up an article featuring minotaurs as PCs. In the 4th edition Monster Manual, we included medium-sized minotaurs to make it easy to have minotaurs as a viable player character race. The Minotaur Warrior fills that niche -- a miniature for DMs and players alike.

That's it for Demonweb! Be sure to check out the entire gallery when it comes online next week. It will be a little while until the next set of previews starts for the first series of Player's Handbook Heroes miniatures that will be released next spring. Until then, keep playing and have fun!
