The five-headed dragon goddess from D&D lore, Tiamat, is coming to tabletops.
Due to ship in September, WizKids has announced a 73.4cm (28.9 inch) wide, 37.1cm (14.6 inch) tall and 42.8cm (16.8 inch) long dragon figure. They’re keen we use Tiamat as a gaming mini, not just as a fancy paperweight.
Patrick O’Hagan, WizKids executive producer of RPGsm told IGN;
Tiamat was so much fun for us to bring to life as so many people are familiar with this classic D&D entity and can envision how she looks with her unique, five-headed form. This version of Tiamat will be the largest mini we have ever worked on.”
There are so many challenges to doing something on this scale – the components, the weight, the size, and the engineering of her use. Remember she isn’t just a statue – we want folks to play with her on their tables! Ultimately these challenges weighted against what we felt was a price fans were willing to pay for her.”
Tiamat is available on pre-order at the new WotC / WizKids venture DnDMini.com. She’ll set you back $399.99.
