DiTerlizzi Masterworks Miniature Line Now Available!

December 9, 2015

Dark Sword Miniatures has released all the figurines in the “DiTerlizzi Masterworks” line just in time for the holidays!


As I mentioned earlier this year, these figures were inspired by both new and old unpublished drawings – although some have since been featured in Realms. Longtime fans may also recognize some personalities from my Player Character Sheets, which debuted at Gen Con back in 2000 and were redesigned and re-released this year. Here is Dark Sword owner, Jim Ludwig, and I talking about the line (and being silly):

Below are some photos of some of my favorite figures (painted by Jessica Rich and Aaron Lovejoy).

4601_f1_pHans the Loner, human rogue.

4620_f1_pAri, the birdman (or kenku)

4611_f1_pAsh Firefeather, elven mage.

4605_f1_pThe Herbalist, human druid.

4622_fs_pYip, the kobold.

4614_f2_pElle Lind, human paladin.

4606_fs_pGrolsch, dwarven warrior.

4626_fs_pGrug, goblin warrior.

4629_f1_pHobgoblin warrior of the Sutherlands.

4630_f1_pOrc of the Otus clan.


…and my lovely model for “Portrait of a Young Tielfling” with her pet couerls (or displacer beasts). The tiefling and many more miniatures are available in select hobby shops or direct from Dark Sword Miniatures. Jim and his team have been busy working away on some larger spectacular new pieces that will be revealed very soon, so check back for more news…

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
