Arcane Heroes

Today: the first box of arcane heroes.

Male Tiefling Warlock

This tiefling is one of those highly useful creatures for both players and Dungeon Masters. Players will use him as a warlock wielding a pact blade and a backstabbing rogue, and DMs will use him as a villain leading an evil ceremony or a thug straight out of a shadow-filled alleyway. The power also blurs the line between the (usually) ranged warlock and a melee-based Rogue: eldritch strike is an attack power that can be used in melee.

Female Eladrin Wizard

By making implement choice an essential focus of the non-weapon wielding classes, there is now a ton of ways to differentiate the look of the old spellcasting classes. The wand is the chosen implement for this female eladrin wizard. Her power is repelling shield, a buffed-up version of shield at level 6. For this utility power, the attacker is also pushed one square away after the attack.

Male Half Elf Bard

I've always liked the versatile nature of this miniature. A bow is strapped to his back, a scroll in hand, which could easily double as a wand. For this version, we've painted him in greens and browns for a bit of woodland flavor. Cutting words is the new at-will attack power for the bard; it's a range 10 attack that also pulls the target up to 2 squares.

If these three arcane heroes don't match the vision for your character, be sure to check out the April and Beyond article for a peak at the three figures found in Arcane Heroes 2. Next time you'll see the contents of the Primal box.
