Elementary Solutions: Bestiary Box Preview
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
While I enjoy painting miniatures, and I'm a fast painter, I'll be the first to admit that painting minis is a time-consuming art. GMing takes a lot of time all by itself and not everyone has the time or talent to make minis fit the evocative stories their imaginations conjure. Also, minis can be expensive. Even with the release of the Pathfinder Battles minis line, we realize that sometimes cash-strapped GMs needed a less-expensive way to make their game tables look as exciting as the stories in their head.
Enter pawns. These were first released with the Pathfinder Beginner Box, and once GMs everywhere got their hands on these easy and inexpensive ways to populate their Flip-Mats and Map Packs, we knew folks would want more.
That's why we started working on the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary Box. This set is chock-full of over 300 tokens from the Pathfinder RPG Bestiary ready to punch out, slide on a base, and challenge your player characters.
Utilizing much of the art from the Bestiary, we were confronted by many art challenges in populating this box. Some of the art from that book just didn't fit templates for the pawns. Other times we lacked art for some of the monsters presented in the book. What was the solution? More art!
Here's the first preview of some of the new art for the Bestiary Box—elementals. In the coming weeks we'll look at some more of the new art for this set. Until then, enjoy these elemental gems.
