Player's Handbook Heroes Preview 3
In this preview we move on to the first boxed set of Arcane Heroes which contains a male Tiefling Warlock, female Eladrin Wizard and a male Half Elf Bard.
Supposedly armed with a pact blade but I can't really make out what is it exactly that it's holding which looks more like an arcane flame or something. Versatile enough to be used as a hero or villain warlock or rogue though. It comes with an Eldritch Strike (level 1; at-wll) that is used in melee to slide an enemy 1 square if it hits.
A very generic looking miniature that wields a wand which I think can be used to represent any eladrin, elf or half elf arcane class that uses that implement. This wizard has a Repelling Shield (level 6; encounter?) which is an upgraded version of Shield that pushes the attack 1 square after the attack.
With a strapped bow, a scroll in one hand and the woodland color scheme, this mini is looking to be very useful. It can act as a ranger or any arcane class that uses a bow besides a bard. In fact, I find this mini more fitting to be an archer ranger than a bard. The pen is mightier than sword is proven for this mini with his Cutting Words (level 1? at-will) which is a ranged attack that pulls the target up to 2 squares.
Anything you like about these minis?
