If you are getting into Dungeons & Dragons, or have been into it for a while but are looking to take your game to the next level, figurines can be a great way to increase the immersion. Whether you are a player looking to get a representative of yourself, or a dungeon master trying to create more immersive environments for your players, D&D miniatures can be great visual touchstones for your journeys through Faerûn.
There are several to choose from, but these are the best D&D miniatures we found that aren’t too expensive to buy at the moment. Don’t forget to get some of the best D&D dice you can find right now, too.
D&D Icons of the Realms: Starter Set
This starter set is great for, you guessed it, ‘starters!’ It comes with a Gold Dwarf Cleric, Human Ranger, Sun Elf Wizard, Northlands Fighter, Lightfoot Halfling Rogue, and Wood Elf Druid, leaving you plenty of flexibility, whether you are representing yourself, your teammates, NPCs, or even villains in your next play session.
D&D Collector’s Series: Ezzat the Lich
If you want to introduce a little undead Elf action into your play sessions, look no further than Ezzat. He’s also a great fit if you eventually want to add a dragon/pseudodragon to the mix, due to his friendship with Ipses.
D&D Collector’s Series: Manshoon
The founder of the Zhentarim, Manshoon worships Mystra, the Lady of Magic, and is a threat even beyond his own natural lifespan. Grab a few if you want to play games with his clones, and he pairs well with Beholders and other powerful magical beasts to create intimidating opposition for your heroes.
D&D Nano METALFIGS Medium Pack A
This pack of hardy metal minifigures has a great mix of characters, from Minsc the human Ranger (with Boo, of course), to an Elvish bard, an Orc Paladin, a Tiefling Paladin with a ball-and-chain flail, and a mighty blue Beholder. All come pre-painted in vibrant colors and are officially licensed.
Monster Protectors Painted Fantasy Mini Figures
This pack is for those looking to flesh things out a bit (pardon the undead jokes). With 28 figures, all hand-painted and ready to use in D&D, Pathfinder, or whatever else you need. With undead enemies, Orcs, Kobolds, goblins, bandits, gnolls, and more, you’re set for all your ‘you’ve been ambushed!’ needs.
Wildspire Fantasy Miniatures with Huge Dragon
This impressive set of 68 unpainted figurines from Wildspire comes with a wide variety of beasts, monsters, and even legendary creatures. From Lamia, Sharkenbear, and the Arch Devil, a massive six-inch Dragon, and one to one-and-a-half inches for the rest, each are ready to paint however you see fit.
Wildspire Heroes, Animal Companions & Troll King
This Wildspire set comes with 29 unpainted animals, heroes, and a troll king, letting you fill out your woodland adventures, and whatever else you need to get up to. Some of the larger creatures include the troll king and a mammoth, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see jackelopes, dogs, crows, blacksmiths, minotaurs, mouse warriors, and a lot of other delightful characters.
Dungeons and Dragons Drizzt Do’Urden Modern Icons Statue
Few characters can match the fame, skill, and charisma of the legendary Drow hero, Drizzt Do’Urden. This statue is a great way to show your appreciation for the classic Forgotten Realms figure, measuring 6.5×6.5×8.75 inches. It’s also officially licensed, and highly detailed, which is always nice.
Super7 Dungeons & Dragons Githyanki Action Figure
If you have been enjoying Baldur’s Gate 3’s Lae’zel, you’ll be happy to know the Githyanki have been around for ages, and this cool vintage collectible action figure comes with a sweet golden sword. Looking like it comes straight out of the ’70s and ’80s action figure era, this new Super7 figure stands 3.75″ tall.
Dungeons & Dragons Honor Among Thieves Golden Archive Edgin
If you, like so many of us, watched and enjoyed the Dungeons & Dragons Honor Among Thieves film, Edgin Darvis (played expertly by Chris Pine) is a charismatic Bard who is down on his luck to the extreme. While there are plenty of great action figures in this series, Edgin is a great place to start, and he comes complete with his dagger and lute.
