WizKids and Critical Role have teamed up to announce a new line of minis pulled straight from the world of Exandria. Check ’em out below.

WizKids, in many ways, help shape the look of D&D on the tabletop. As far as miniature makers go, their pre-painted minis are boxed as Icons of the Realms. If you are running one of the adventures and bust out a big set piece display, odds are good it’s from WizKids. They made that Kraken, the amazing boat, and the upcoming Yawning Portal set.

And now they’re teaming up with Critical Role to bring you a whole line of new miniatures taken straight from the pages of Exandria, as they announced today:

WizKids, the premier manufacturer of premium pre-painted miniatures and tabletop games, today announced a partnership with Critical Role, the most popular story-driven and worldbuilding digital media brand in the world. Adding to its leading line of high-quality miniatures, WizKids will debut product offerings from the expansive world of Exandria, beginning Q1 2021.

Matt Mercer, GM and Chief Creative Officer at Critical Role spoke about the partnership and his hopes for this foray into Exandria:

“I’ve been a rabid collector of WizKids’ minis for… well, a very long time, and to be able to work directly with them to bring the denizens and dangers of Exandria to life for everyone to use is beyond exciting. They bring such skill and expertise to their work, and this upcoming collection really captures the characters and atmosphere of Exandria. I think fans of Critical Role, as well as players new to our world, will greatly enjoy this opportunity for deeper play, collaboration, and imagination.”

And you can see some of this detail in the launch lineup, which translates monsters straight out of some of the most exciting moments from the Mighty Nein campaign, like this Udaak here:
