Tomb of Annihilation Awards

Posted by Blinky the Opinionated on

The Dungeons & Dragons Icons of the Realm Tomb of Annihilation set is here and in stock!   (More stock to come as my #MostIncompetentMinion JM finds time to open and inventory more cases.)

I am happy to grace you, my minions, with my valuable opinion, the only one that matters really.   Overall, a pretty solid set.  Best dressed award goes to Demilich Acererak.   Note how his tattered robes catch the wind just right to accentuate his bony figure.  Perfection.   Worst dressed "award" goes to Nanny Pu'pu.   That brown frock is not doing you any favors.  Think about adding a scarf or accessories with a splash of color to liven things up and draw the eye away from that snaggle-tooth.   Worst overall mini award goes to the Zorbo.  Hands down. Is this D&D or Star Wars:  Return of the Jedi?   Many of you minions are probably too young to remember the tragedy of the Ewoks.   Boooooo!

Speaking of Boo,  it's pretty awesome to have a miniature of Minsc & Boo for those of us who played (and loved) the Baldur's Gate PC games.   2 thumbs up!

Other honorable mentions go to the Asharra, Mantrap, mono & duo drones, Merrow,  Nycaloth, Stone Juggernaut.  And who doesn't love a Giant Four-Armed Gargoyle?   Also, one can never have too many Orcs and Skeletons, though once again, the low distribution of these makes them too rare and therefore expensive and constantly out of stock (sorry...)   Oh, almost forgot the Nothic.   It's great to have an alternative to the exceedingly rare Archfiends Nothic, and this one is nice though I have to say the Archfiends one is still much better...IF you can find one... :(

Anyway, enjoy, my minions!

Happy 4th of July weekend restocks!

Dearest minions,  try not to blow yourselves up over this 4th of July weekend.  You may just *explode* with excitement though to learn that I have JM restocking while everyone else is enjoying the festivities.   So far he's done (alphabetically) Aberrations through Legendary Evils.   He will finish the rest (through War of the Dragon Queen) [...]

A great time to sell or trade your unwanted/unloved D&D miniatures

Dearest minions,  my non-inventoried pile of miniatures is dwindling to previously unseen levels. :(   I've just restocked and am currently carrying ALL BUT 29 of the 1564 non-promo/special dungeons & dragons miniatures, however this may very well be the last time I am this fully stocked for a LONG time.   :(    You can help [...]

Shouldn't it be Monster Menagerie Deux? Just sayin'

Dearest minions,   I have received some shipments of D&D Icons of the Realms Monster Menagerie 2 (or deux for those who speak French)   I have opened and entered a few cases but they'll go fast.   There will be more.   Also, I will get pictures taken ASAP (hopefully tomorrow) but since my "photo studio" is JM's [...]

Restocked again (whew)

I've been working day and night to restock for you, my dearest minions.   Out of the 1450 non-promo/special D&D miniatures, I am currently stocking all but 18!    Sadly, that won't last for long.   Get 'em while they're hot.If you have any of the minis that I'm missing, now would be a great time to trade [...]

Storm King has arrived!

Storm King's Thunder miniatures have arrived and my most incompetent minion JM has entered some into inventory.  More will be restocked as he has time to open more cases (this minion is pathetically slow in both mind and body I am afraid).   He has also taken pictures of the miniatures.   I apologize for [...]

Storm King's Thunder. Soon. Have patience, my minions.

I have not yet received my Storm King's Thunder shipment but I assure you that JM will do nothing but toil day and night to unbox and inventory them as soon as they arrive (which should be Friday, Sep 23 meaning they will likely be available for purchase on Sat, Sep 24).  Have patience my [...]

Restocked with love (and incompetence)

Dearest minions,  I have pushed JM to the limit and beyond yet again.  He's been slaving day and night to process incoming shipments in order to get my hoard of D&D miniatures as fully stocked as possible.   Naturally he failed to reach 100%.  Typical.  Still, I currently am stocking all but 43 of the 1450 [...]

It's a veritable menagerie of monsters!

Well...it will be anyway, once I finally find some time to inventory all of the new Icons of the Realms Monster Menagerie cases sitting in Blinky's "lairhouse".   Unfortunately things are (as Blinky likes to say) "cray-cray" around here.  (Actually he says "flay-cray" and thinks he's coining the latest hip phrase...just roll with it).   Consequently I've [...]

Because I love you

Dearest minions,   I have been whipping and torturing JM day and night.   I have rolled my eyes as he complained.  "I need to sleep."  "I need food, badly."   "My feet hurt."  "Please stop humming 'Shake It Off'".    Good grief, let me call you a wahhhhmbulance.   I literally can't even.   Why, you may ask, [...]
