D&D 5E Warduke, Kelek, Strongheart Miniatures!

The official miniatures sets from WizKids for The Wild Beyond the Witchlight include 'The League of Malevolence' set and the 'Valor's Call' set, and contain a whole bunch of characters from the 1980s D&D action toys set and the cartoon.

The League of Malevolence set includes Warduke (the evil fighter) and Kelek (the evil wizard), as well as Skylla (Ringlerun's former apprentice), Zarak (the half orc assassin), and Zargash (the evil cleric).

The Valor's Call set includes Strongheart (the paladin). Ringlerun (the wizard, who was on the cover on 1983's AD&D Player's Handbook!), Molliver (the good thief), Elkhorn (dwarf fighter), and Mercion (the cleric).

And here's Ringlerun, painted by Jeff Easley for the AD&D Player's Handbook back in 1983!

Here's a preview map of Warduke's homeworld: MOTHERLAND—The World of ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Action Figures.
From an upcoming aficionado-crafted worldbook. Michael Gray co-designed the world. Mike is the author of the only D&D adventure (prior to Witchlight) to feature Warduke: the 1984 module XL1: Quest for the Heartstone. He chose the world to be square, selected the shape of the continents, and designed many other features of the setting; for example, he named the duchy of which Warduke is the "duke" of: the Duchy of Wargrave!

Everyone armed with a single weapon except Ringlerun appear to be southpaws. I don't know if I've ever seen pre-painted miniatures on the market that looks as good as these. Is that actually what the finally product is going to look like?
Those aren’t painted minis, they are just 3d computer renders. Wizkids does that with all of their products. Very misleading.

Hmmm, I like!

that’s an old school return on the aesthetics to something more medieval with these characters. Almost everything WotC has released recently heavily borrows on 19th century, even early 20th century imagery and concepts (including the titular carnaval/circus/theme park). I do hope there is more to it than 80s character appearance however. I’m not sure if I really like the « Victorian-with-no-guns » vibe I get from recent products.

I really dislike the aesthetics of the Wizkids miniatures when it comes to ones I might use for PCs. The other day I was looking for an armored knight and I just didn't like anything from their selection. I really dig their monster miniatures though.
