D&D Miniatures
Martial Heroes
by Peter Lee

For our final preview of the Player's Handbook miniatures, we take another look into the martial classes.

Male Tiefling Warlord

Heavily armored tiefling miniatures are not a common sight. Here's one! He's great for use as a fighter or even a paladin. The warlord at-will attack packaged with this miniature is rousing assault. When you hit your target, you're able to add your charisma modifier to healing powers for a short time -- great when you need to use Inspiring Word on your allies.

Female Eladrin Fighter

For those collectors that have been around since the (near) beginning, you may recognize this figure as the sculpt for the Drow Sergeant from Archfiends. This is probably one of my favorites repaints -- it is almost unrecognizable from the original paint job and there are definitely fun things you can do if you have both versions of the miniature. As you can't see the front, I need to tell you that the holy symbol of Corellon graces her shield. Her power, knockdown assault, is a melee attack that also knocks the opponent prone.

Male Dwarf Rogue

I'm leaving (in my opinion) the best for last: the Dwarf Rogue. He looks like he's sneaking down the alley, his back against the wall, his dagger drawn for a quick ambush. That fits his power -- a utility power called hidden blade.

That's it for the first wave of figures aimed at player characters. I'll be starting into the previews for the new monster set really soon!
