Wardlings are a line of adventurer miniatures from Wizkids, designed for younger gamers getting into gaming.
What a cool concept. Wardlings are a bunch of prepainted miniatures from from Wizkids. But unlike their Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures, Deep Cuts, or any of the other models they create, these ones are specifically younger adventurers. They still have all of the same things you’d expect to find in a regular adventurer type miniature: there’s a Cleric, a Fighter, a Rogue, etc. And they have weapons or are casting spells–check them out.
This is really neat–anyone who’s gamed knows the importance of finding a miniature that looks like your character. And especially if you’re just getting started, your character often looks a lot like you. Or at least someone you could see yourself being–and these ones are aimed at younger gamers (though they are excellent quality–and as they point out in the video, I could easily see them being used for Halfling Characters or the like.
There’s six figures all in all–but it sounds like they have more on the way. Check them out, we’ve got preview pictures and more linked below. But if you’ve got kids who are just getting into roleplaying games, this is a great gift.
WizKids Wardlings – $7.99
The fledgling adventurers that are a part of the Wardlings product line have a magical ability to see their animal companions, a trait of which only children are capable. These adventurers also gain their powers and abilities at a young age, allowing them to defeat the evil creatures in their world. Their powers, however, are fleeting. As the children grow, they begin to lose their powers over time. When they enter adulthood, most forget they ever adventured in the first place as everyday responsibilities take hold.
Each young adventurer will come pre-painted, fully assembled and packaged with their designated companion, who will assist them through thick and thin.
Packs include one character and one companion.
Figures come pre-painted and assembled.
Clear and easy packaging makes it easy for customers to know exactly what they are getting.
