WizKids created the eCommerce mini store DnDMinis last year with Wizards of the Coast. Now, GamesRadar is reporting the company will release Prismatic Paint, as an entry-level mini paints range, as sprue-based Framework mini kits.
GamesRadar notes that WizKids is going after newbies with Prismatic Paint, with paints that will be affordable and not aimed to take on the likes of Citadel. Images from GamesRadar’s coverage show that the paints carry the D&D logo front and centre, though.
Created in partnership with Vallejo, there will be 60 different Prismatic Paints in stores before the end of the year. The Starter Case will have 30 basic colours and this is designed to get you going. A second bundle will add 30 more complex effects.
RPG Producer at WizKids JD Wiker told the site;
We’re trying to develop a paintline that is mainly aimed at people who are not pro painters. The people who are maybe just dipping their toes into the hobby, who want to try things out and not be confused by terminology that’s designed to cover all possible applications of the paint.”
WizKids usually sells one-and-done models, often painted already, so the sprue-based Framework model range is different. These kits allow mini-painters and collectors to pick options when they build the models contained within.
Unlike Prismatic Paints, which are firmly D&D, Framework will be game-agnostic, according to Wiker.
