Gary Gygax created Dungeons and Dragons over forty years ago. It has gone through four editions, and it has many imitators. Other games, such as the collectible card game Magic the Gathering were inspired by the game. Blizzard dedicated one of its World of Warcraft patches to the creator. Ral Partha, a miniatures company, has made miniatures for the game since it was still owned by TSR. TSR produced the game until its second edition ended. Wizards of the Coast bought out TSR in the late 1990s. The 3rd Edition came out. Before the game could come out with an update to its third edition, Wizards of the Coast was bought out by Hasbro.

Now, Ral Partha still makes high quality miniatures. The gargantuan blue dragon figurine helps role players see the combats they are engaged in more clearly. Many gaming groups use miniatures to keep track of combat. The miniatures help people make tactical decisions that can alter the course of the game. They can also keep players from casting area effect spells when they should use a single target spell.
Ral Partha miniatures are built to a scale, although no one knows exactly how large a real Dungeons & Dragons gargantuan blue dragon would be. It does not matter. The Dungeons & Dragons gargantuan blue dragon is used for many other fantasy games as well. There is nothing stopping someone from using it in a GURPS or Fantasy Hero campaign. The GURPS rules and the Hero System rules allow the game master to apply their rules to any genre. Each of these companies produces source books that are used by people who play many other games. Ral Partha also makes a line of miniature for the Warhammer Fantasy and Mordheim miniatures games produced by the UK-based Games Workshop company.
