Word of Wizards - Dangerous Delves Preview 5

Dangerous Delves Preview 5

In this preview, we take a look at 5 more miniatures that will be appearing in this set including some Feywild themed creatures and a new monster.

So let's start off with this,

This is not a bad looking one and it would be easy to find since they are visibles. I'm not sure if I'll be needing many of these for an encounter but it will still be nice to have some.

Bloodseeker Drake
A new common drake that will be appearing in Monster Manual 2. The Bloodseeker Drake is a Level 4 Soldier that has a Bite (standard; at-will) that does 1d10+4 damage and is immune to fear. Useful to represent the other drakes but I wonder how many of them are not already commons.

Banshrae Warrior
This feywild instectoid race will be making its debut as a rare. I'm not sure what to make out of this new race yet but having enough of these to form a complete encounter might be a good incentive to get me started on using these guys more in a campaign.

Feygrove Choker
The larger and wilder cousin of the original choker from previous editions comes as an uncommon. Since the first choker appeared in a miniature set 5 years ago, this looks like a good replacement despite being of a larger size. I don't think my players would be too concern about size accuracy for a creature like the choker so I guess that's ok.

Ghaele of Winter
The looks of this one is heavily based on its appearance in the Monster Manual and I would say they've done quite a good job on this one. This is easily usable as an Eladrin rogue or any of the arcane PCs. Being a rare also helps that you don't get too much of these in bulk too.

Any comments on these miniatures?
