D&D Miniatures
Divine Heroes
by Peter Lee

Surprise! The preview engine is in overdrive. Instead of these articles appearing weekly, you'll see them every Wednesday and Friday. (I fear for Mr. Winter's sanity when I tell him how many figures I want to preview in a single week for Dangerous Delves, the monster set being released this May. ed's note: too late!)

Male Dwarf Paladin

This sturdy dwarf is dressed to kill: a suit of fine plate mail, a swooping cloak, a warhammer, and a shield emblazoned with the holy symbol of Moradin. You need to look back to Underdark's Gold Dwarf Soldier before you find another male Dwarf with a warhammer and shield. This one is bundled with a new paladin at-will power named challenging strike, a power that marks foes when it hits.

Female Halfling Cleric

Stop -- in the name of Melora! OK, it probably won't make a catchy song, but as one of the few armored halfling females, this should be a useful miniature. As there are two clerics in the box, the powers aren't associated with one particular figure, but thematically I feel walk among the wounded fits this character better. I'd describe it, but you'd probably prefer to just see the card.

Male Human Cleric

The miniature process is a long one, and when we decided to go into the new model, we needed to pick up a few older sculpts to produce 18 PC figures. In each case, we're providing alternate paint jobs to make the figure stand out. The Female Eladrin Fighter in the Martial Heroes 2 box is a good example of how different a figure can look, but that's another preview. This Male Human Cleric is a much younger version of the Cleric of St. Cuthbert, released back in 2004. The other cleric power featured in the box is gaze of defiance, an at-will attack power that also handles some target designation effects, encouraging your allies to pile attacks on one target.
