Dragon Heist Paper Miniatures (Chapter 1)


Welcome to the DM's Day sale! From now through March 14th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our DM's Day sale page.

I've made some paper miniatures for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist! This pack covers all the NPCs and Monsters for Chapter 1.

There are 24+  different designs (i.e. 25), and I've included printouts to get the full quantity of miniatures required for the entire first chapter of Dragon Heist, i.e. if you print the whole thing and prepare them you'll have everyone you need!

Some examples of included characters:

  • Volothamp Geddarm,
  • Renaer Neverember,
  • Goblin,
  • Kenku,
  • Nihiloor the Mindflayer (pictured on the cover!),
  • Intellect devourer,
  • and many more!

Even Mattrim Threestrings is in here!

To make your minis, print out the sheets, onto either regular paper or thicker cardstock, then cut out a rectangle around the artwork, fold over the white line so the 2 sides match up, then glue the folded sides together. If you're not basing it you should leave flaps open on either side, which you can fold up as a makeshift base.

There's another way to make yours, a bit fancier but needs more materials, there's a tutorial at by Wyloch (not me).

There's actually a couple of ways to support the creation of these paper minis. Please do try to do one (or more! although maybe I'm pushing it there :D) of the following, since every little bit helps! You can:

  1. Buy on DMsGuild, paying what you think is a fair price,
  2. Leaving a review on DMsGuild! Obviously not quite as good as an actual sale (:D) but every review really helps gain more exposure, leading other people to possibly purchase it themselves!

Note: Hyustus Staget is not in this chapter, as he doesn't feature in any combat. He'll be in the Xanathar chapter. If you need him you can use one of the city guards provided instead. :)

I think I will try to run this adventure at some point, and it's really nice to have all the minis organized like this, I will definitely buy them if I run the adventure and really recommend them!

I'm planning on running DH in a few months time and would really love to have more of theses for the chapters that haven't been done yet even for Xanithar and Manshoon if possible.

Cute, fun, and definitely made my players laugh and appreciate the encounters and were very interactive with them surprisingly. These are also GREAT for running campaigns for younger adventurers (I work as a teacher in a city school district and they LOVE them)

These are great! Really looking forward to the following chapters, any idea when they will be available?

I'm going to guess tentatively next week or the week after? Each one can take a while to draw, and most of the work gets done over the weekends. It's likely to be released on a Sunday when it is done.

Managed to get these done over the weekend! You can grab them at

I'd expect the next chapter won't take so long, as there are only about 10 figures necessary.

As this is my first foray into paper mini's what thickness of paper do you recommend?
Customer avatar
Fynn H October 23, 2018 10:54 am UTC
Hi Ólafur,

I personally used 250 gsm paper, but you can use regular copy paper. If you do I'd recommend you glue it around a piece of cardstock.

What scale are these?

They're about 1 inch or 2.5 cm wide, with the feet of the characters at about 5/8 in or 1.6 cm wide. The Troll is bigger as he's a Large creature. :)

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
