Meet GF9's New D&D DRACOLICH!

Gale Force 9 has a new Dungeons & Dragons miniature - the Dracolich! This $90 resin miniature is from the D&D Collector's Series, made of 14 pieces, and is limited to just 1,500 units. "Even as long-lived as they are, all dragons must eventually die. This thought doesn’t sit well with many dragons, some of which allow themselves to be transformed by necromantic energy and ancient rituals into powerful dracoliches. A dracolich retains its shape and size upon transforming, its skin and scales drawing tight to its bones or sloughing away to leave a skeletal form behind. Its eyes appear as glowing points of light floating in shadowy sockets, hinting at the malevolence of its undead mind."

You can find it in GF9's online store here for $90.

I'm not fond of the ruins though. I want my miniatures neutral, without a backdrop. Also, why did they paint it blue? If anything, I'd want to avoid it being confused for any particular color of dragon. The creature looks great though. But I could do without the dramatic pose. I want my miniatures purely functional, so I can place them onto dungeon tiles without is looking out of place.
 
It's blue because it's a model of the blue dracolich in the Neverwinter MMO. *puts on second pair of nerd glasses and pushed them up his nose* And as you can clearly see from the dragons bone structure and horn formation it was once a blue dragon hence why it's painted blue.

*Explodes in nerd rage at being trolled* ;-)

Well, listen here, kid. That there's a dracolich, which means it's made o' bone. An' that means it ain't no blue; it's bleached-pale bone. An' I don't see why I have to correc' their mis-stake by strippin' the paint off and puttin' little red dots on the eyes. Yahear?

Maybe blue dragon bones are blue?

Are you joking? The bones are bleached-pale, but there is still skin/scales remain, so that skin/scale is blue. Is that really so hard to understand?

Imagine buying a dragon lich for every color of dragon and painting them all according to what color the dragon used to be. From a practical point of view, I'd paint it simply the color of rotting flesh, so it can represent any kind of dragon I want. This is just a bizarre choice of paint scheme. I bet the dragon looks a lot better if it is painted bloody and brown, with hints of green, and with pale bones.

But they can leave out the castle ruins. I don't want a diorama, I want a miniature. If my players encounter a dragon lich in the snow, then this miniature will just look out of place. Just give it a black base, and no scenery.

It's a resin miniature. It comes unpainted and you can paint it anyway you want. Of course there will be those that bitch and moan that it comes unpainted. You can't please everyone.

No. I posted in a silly faux old man "accent" because my statement is intended to be taken entirely seriously.

And in closing, I would like to say a few words, and here they are:

Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! Thank you.
OK, I missed it. Sarcasm is a bit more difficult to discern through text.

I too would prefer it without a castle, but it is in fact a diorama (collectible) not a miniature. Yes, you could use it as a miniature, but that is not why the are making it.

I like the red dragon they made although I have yet to put it together and paint. It does come with 2 bases, the treasure base in the painted pics and another with just it standing and can be used anywhere you want to fight a dragon :)
