Miniature painting can be intimidating if you're just starting out. And even if you're not, come to think of it. It's expensive, too: there's a dizzying variety of options to get caught up on before you put brush to paint. D&D model-maker WizKids wants to remove those obstacles. More specifically, it's launching its own line of paints that focuses on entry-level hobbyists later this year. Dubbed 'Prismatic Paint' and made in collaboration with the experts at Vallejo, this range is primed to launch toward the end of 2021.

It's not the only release the company has planned, either: WizKids is also working on brand-new, sprue-based miniatures. Called 'Frameworks', these will provide customizable characters, large monsters, and boxsets that offer multiple foes per kit to populate adventures from the best Dungeons and Dragons books.

Umm, I have ideas for that warriors shield.

They better be smart enough to scale these correctly

Also, he is totally carrying a tiny treasure chest on his belt. Stealing that as well.

I hope they are priced competitively against Frostgrave. There are some great bits on some of those kits, but the overall minis themselves are not quite exciting enough to spend $GW or even $Conquest on.

These sound pretty cool, and the paint line will probably be at least decent as Vallejo is going to be producing it.

I'm interested to see what they put out there.

I wonder if this will be Vallejo's take on contrast paints ...

Yes. Duncan's paint line is being made in association with the Army Painter and not Vallejo.

Sub'ed. I'm not particularly impressed by this though. I have been really impressed with their unpainted and painted assembled fantasy rpg fig lines though. They've got a huge variety in those with hundreds of SKUs already spread out between generic, D&D, and Pathfinder.

Look neat, but I wouldn't classify these as "Beginner Level" figures.

These are definitely advanced, and they are going to take a serious level of preparation before you are even ready for paint.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

I know at least one of the Collector's Series DnD minis in the lasr few years has been plastic (Zariel from Descent into Avernus). That was a pretty decent attempt at hard plastic on sprue, not quite as sharp as GW's perhaps but it had solid detail, was well-scaled and if I remember right, it all fit together very nicely.

Definitely need that Balor though, especially if that's a Gargantuan 100mm base it's on, that's one massive mini! The Nolzur's/Deep Cuts minis are great for larger creatures already, but if this leads to affortable generic dragons, demons and such on the market in plastic then that's even better.

Most likely. Contrast paints are just an ink wash and these are coming in bottles that acrylic artist inks are sold in complete with lid based dropper. I'll most likely pick a few up. If the colors are good and they are similar to Contrast it would be a welcome addition.

I think these have a lot of potential.

Strong opening salvo and if they are committed to learning what makes a sculpture work well in miniature this could develop into a really great line.

Should certainly worry Reaper and will likely be used by GW as an excuse to work even harder to become a boutique miniature company.

my inital reaction to prismatic paints was that this may have been Vellajo's response to GW's contrast paints (cause contrast paint is so handy but there are def people who'd rather buy Vellejo then citidel) but it looks like rather it's just a simple line of paints with clear names which I can understand why, Vellajelo is confusing as feth due to their huge range and names

Just had a chance to read the article in full. Here's the lowdown on the new paints from the article:

Created in partnership with the maestros of Vallejo, 60 paints will be making their way to stores at the end of this year for an undisclosed - but apparently affordable - price. These will be available individually (in pots with dropper lids) or via two boxsets. One, known as the Starter Case, includes 30 basic colors and serves as an entry-level option. The second is an intermediate bundle with 30 more complex effects. In other words? You'll be able to collect the entire Prismatic line if you buy both.

Although the range includes some formulations we've seen before (albeit in smaller pots this time), 20 are entirely new, D&D-branded additions. These hope to be more user-friendly than the competition with names like 'Scarlet Red' or 'Gunmetal' that do exactly what they say on the tin. In addition, each pot features easy-to-understand branding that'll tell you which kind of paint, wash, or effect you're seeing at a glance.

It will be interesting to see what these 'more complex effects' exactly are.

My guess would be some of Vellajo's "technical" paints. things like their crackle medium, varnishes etc.

I'm very interested in what kind of scults they have going.

There have been multiples time of when I would have LOVED to use a DnD model as a basis for a conversion, at least had parts that I would have loved to have pilfered to be foiled by their design and material.

The models are like modern DnD at least, unimaginative and of no interest to me, but I am curious about the paints and think it's a good thing at least overall in that it will get more people into the hobby (which is good, right?).

It's nice they're making these for the hobbyists, but I'll stick to the pre-painted (and occassional pre-primed minis. Got too much stuff on my paint table as it is.

It never ends well

To be fair, it's expected that the adventurer minis would be generic, as they have to roughly resemble a whole host of potential characters. I agree that some more imaginative monsters should have been included, though. It's really not too hard to find a minotaur-adjacent mini given that beastmen are a thing.

I will definitely look at how this will develop. There certainly is quite some space for them to explore and I would love to have some good versions of their various outsiders.
