Are you having trouble finding the perfect mini for your newest D&D character? Or maybe you need some inspiration for your new character in your latest campaign? Look no further than this article! Continue below to see our favorite D&D miniatures for player characters. 

This is a great mini for a player first starting. A human fighter may sound basic, but with all the fighter subclasses available and the abilities of human variant races, this is a great character to pick that will grow with a player. 

15. Human Fighter

This guy looks ready for battle!

What makes a Human Fighter awesome:

  • This mini, like all the ones in this list, comes pre-painted! No boring grey plastic here. 
  • Beautiful long locks adorn this mini’s head, meaning you could use it to play any gender fighter character. 
  • The detail on the armor has an ethereal green tinge, perfect for multiple subclasses of a fighter, or a fighter that has acquired magical armor!

14. Male Human Barbarian

I wouldn't want to be in the way of this guy's axe!

Barbarians are arguably one of the most fun classes to play. Every barbarian player needs a good mini that looks ready for battle!

What makes a Male Human Barbarian awesome: 

  • This mini is posed as if they are about to attack. As a barbarian, you want a mini that conveys the main combat emotion of your character: rage!
  • This barbarian isn’t plain at all--he wears a thick, fur cape and bracers made for a warrior. Who said bare-chested meant boring? 
  • His face is SO expressive! It is the little details that can make a mini your favorite.

13. Female Elf Druid

This elf looks like she's about to let loose on some unfortunate enemies. 

Elves and the druid class go hand in hand. Their skills and abilities fit well together, making it a popular combination. Here’s the perfect mini for your elf druid!

What makes a Female Elf Druid awesome: 

  • Her posture may look closed off, but the expression on her face says “don’t mess with me”!
  • This mini carries her staff close to her--after all, Shillelagh is often said to be one of the most powerful and useful cantrips in the D&D universe. 
  • This druid isn’t all flowers and hippie-happiness. Not all druids have to fit the stereotype, and this mini breaks expectations!

12.Male Dwarf Paladin

I'd follow this guy into battle!

Paladins are great for more experienced players who want to be able to cast spells and heal as well as smack the crap out of enemies. This dwarf paladin isn’t a demure priest-type, that’s for sure!

What makes a Male Dwarf Paladin great: 

  • This paladin mini is in attack mode, or maybe he’s rallying his party for the upcoming battle! Either way, this guy isn’t backing down from a fight.
  • His golden armor and red cape make him the perfect mini for a paladin who serves a god of sun or light, or maybe fire!
  • What would a dwarf be without his beard? This dwarf lets it all hang out!

11. Female Dragonborn Rogue

She's certainly unique among rogues!

Dragonborn are super cool looking, and rogue is one of our favorite classes for D&D beginners! This is a great choice of mini for someone who’s just starting to play D&D. 

What makes a Female Dragonborn Rogue awesome: 

  • This mini carries two weapons in her hands, both her crossbow and her dagger. Perfect for a rogue that isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty. 
  • It can be hard to find a rogue mini that isn’t dressed in the same old black with a long hooded cape. This mini is unafraid in gold plate armor and a mid-length blue cape. She’s unique among rogues, for sure.

10. Male Tiefling Warlock

He looks like he's about to reveal some insane magic that I don't want to be in the way of!

Who said magic users had to have spellbooks or staff at all times? This tiefling warlock is ready to jump right into the battle!

What makes a Male Tiefling Warlock awesome: 

  • Just because spell casters tend to have less HP than their barbarian or fighter counterparts, doesn’t mean they have to be sneaky or afraid. This warlock has an open stance that conveys bravery. 
  • This mini holds his spell components in his hand, showing his enemies that he’s about to eldritch blast them to hell. 
  • Tieflings are so fun to play! Hellish rebuke anyone?

9. Male Goliath Barbarian

If you see this coming for you, say a prayer, 'cause you're dead.

8. Male Human Wizard

He may not look intimidating, but a wizard isn't someone to mess with. 

The human race is a good base for pretty much any class, including wizard! If you like playing casters, why not give a wizard a try?

  • This guy has his signature spellbook and staff! What would a wizard be without those? 
  • Who said wizards had to be dark? This guy wears a bright yellow robe with no fear!

7. Wood Elf Ranger

This ranger is all business. 

It can be hard to find minis for elven characters that are more specific than just “elf”. This guy is wood elf specific, and he’s a ranger!

What makes a Wood Elf Ranger great:

4. Female Elf Fighter

Who said elves can't kick ass at a melee-based class? 

It seems that most people view elves as magic users, what with their connection to fae in the D&D universe. But who says an elf can’t be a badass warrior?

3. Dwarf Artificer

He could be sneaking, or about to create a robot that kicks your ass. Who knows? 

Artificers are a new class in the grand scheme of D&D. Therefore, it can be hard to find an artificer mini without creating a custom one on a website like Heroforge. Luckily, we’ve got your back with this little guy here!

What makes a Dwarf Artificer awesome: 

  • This guy could be sneaking around or running into a battle! Perfect for an artificer of any personality. 
  • This mini has a weapon in hand and his trusty pack full of inventions on his back. This artificer is ready for anything!

1. Female Halfling Cleric

Holy power is not to be underestimated. 

Every party needs a healer, and clerics are the quintessential healer class. Halflings are always a good race choice due to their ability to reroll natural ones. This is a great combo for a healer that can’t be beaten!

What makes a Female Halfling Cleric awesome: 

  • This cleric is stoic AF! Plus, her armor doesn’t over-feminize her, meaning you could probably use this mini to play any gender of armored halfling!
  • The green color scheme in her armor and shield is not only pretty but works well for multiple subclasses of clerics. 
  • Her arm is outstretched, ready to cast a spiritual weapon and beat the crap out of her foes. This pose makes her dynamic without taking the spotlight, which would be uncharacteristic for a lot of clerics.
