Blood of Kings

I just started a new campaign, with the players excitedly bringing their freshly painted and occasionally customized miniatures, either tweaking Reaper Bones or modding with a mixture of generic accessories and Green Stuff epoxy. It’s great that they’re so excited for their character. But, as a DM, it makes it much harder to kill characters as they’re not just an investment of the tens of minutes needed to generate the characters but of money needed to buy a miniature and potential hours needed to customize and paint. The more time and customization required (such as with a mini that incorporates magnets for modular accessories) the harder it is to kill that character.
