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

For those interested . . . if you go over to dndmini.com (a WizKids site), you can preorder these two sets, plus a bunch of other Witchlight products. Shipping is free for orders over $50, and if you pre-order any Witchlight product, you get a bonus pack of three harengon brigands (bunny-people bandits).
Damn it, I zeroed out my Reaper Bones Kickstarter order during the pandemic (I was going to get the new box of dungeon basics, which looks great). The Witchlight collector's box and harengon brigands is tempting as hell, though.

I mean, maybe they have already: Perkins said in the revised Issue 38 of Dragon+ that there are a large number of old references sprinkled in the book.
If Uni or the Dungeon Master were in Witchlight, they would not keep it a secret. They'd have a whole boxed set of the heroes of the cartoon heroes ready to sell.

I'm pretty sure their absence, along with Venger's, suggests that the rights are too much of a mess for them to use them.

Not to highjack, but they just re-opened the Bones 5 pledge manager and accept late pledges if you are wanting to pick something up.

I know. I am wrestling with it, especially as that boxed set is one of the ones still available. But I had been getting away from using minis even before the pandemic, so I'm not sure if this would be more than a $50 collector of dust for me. (It's a great boxed set, though, especially for people who need a low level dungeon starter set.)
 

Waiting to see if GF9 releases are planned and if they have the better sculpts. If not, I'll get these, strip em bare, and repaint. Wizkids often has pretty good sculpts under their goopy paint. The Deep Cuts/Nolzur's lines are better than Reaper Bones IMO.

Gaming is fun, and fun is for everyone
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!

I like this a lot; if I ever run Witchlight and Warduke survives, it would be fun for the PCs to follow him back to his world to either aide him in taking back his Dukedom, or overthrow him!
