So yesterday I was at my local comics shop(the Source comics & games) and I decided to look through the Darksword miniatures for anything new that might catch my eye. Well apparently I havent looked at them in a while because I was shocked to see the mini’s that lay be fore me in the display case.
I had rediscovered the Heroes of the Lance! Now I have to tell you that I own the original Ral Partha Dragonlance Heroes box set and lets face it they arent great sculpts to say the least.
But they where great for when they came out and I used them in many a game. So lets get into my picks for a DarkSword version of the Heroes:
First up we have Tanis half-Elven (DSM-7434)
Sturm Brightblade (DSM-7440)
Laurana (Knight of Solamnia) (DSM-4114)
Fizban/Paladine (DSM-4111) Raistlin Majere (DSM-7439)
Caramon Majere (DSM-7524) Flint Fireforge (DSM-1184)
Goldmoon (DSM- 4110) Tika Waylan (DSM-1103)
I would add a staff to Goldmoon so she looks closer to the original Partha mini.
Kitiara Early years version Dragon Highlord Kitiara
Note: The names listed are character names, not the names of the miniatures. The DSM # is the product sku, this way you can find them on the Darksword site or at your local Hobby/Comic shop
There you have it, my picks for the updated Heroes of the lance miniatures. I know what your thinking ” You didnt pick Riverwind or Tasslehoff Burfoot!” and your right, I havent found a mini for Tas yet but I did see one that would work well for Riverwind but I cant find the mini on their site. when I do i’ll add it to the list. Let me know what you think!
