Announcing Pathfinder Battles: Kingmaker!

Monday, April 16, 2018

Now that we're done with previews of Jungle of Despair—which releases next week—I'm excited to announce the next Pathfinder Battles miniatures set from our partners at WizKids.

Currently scheduled for an October release, Pathfinder Battles: Kingmaker, is the fifteenth set of prepainted plastic miniatures in the popular Pathfinder Battles line. Featuring 44 randomized figures in sizes ranging from Small to Large, and six pieces of dungeon dressing, Pathfinder Battles: Kingmaker exemplifies the commitment to quality sculpts and paint jobs, as well as variety and utility of figures, the line is known for.

As always, customers who order a case of Pathfinder Battles: Kingmaker boosters will also have the opportunity to purchase the set's case incentive. This set's two-figure incentive features the earth and water elemental lords, completing the Huge elemental series we began last year in Maze of Death with the air and fire elemental lords.

No Kingmaker set would be complete without some of the iconic allies and villains from the Kingmaker Adventure Path, such as the troll leader and Nyrissa, a Large uncommon and Medium rare figure, respectively.

There are also a number of more generic tropes of the genre we're releasing for the first time, like the bat swarm, werewolf, and oni mage. These figures fill in some of the gaps from the Pathfinder RPG Bestiary, which many fans have requested we represent as thoroughly as possible in prepainted plastic. The bat swarm and werewolf are both Medium figures, at the common and uncommon rarities, respectively, while the oni mage is a Large uncommon figure.

With the pending release of Pathfinder Kingmaker, the first isometric, party-based computer RPG set in the Pathfinder fantasy universe (now in Beta for Kickstarter backers!), we also had the unique opportunity to provide miniatures of the many new characters being introduced in the game by the game's developers at Owlcat Games. These companions will join the player along their journey to conquer and rule the Stolen Lands, and can now join players in their tabletop games as well. Check out Regongar, half-orc magus, the first of these companions we're showing off. A Medium rare figure, Regongar also makes a great PC or enemy NPC with the lightning spell effect giving him unmatched gravitas on the battle mat.

We're still a few months away from showing off the entire set, but keep coming back weekly for more Pathfinder (and Starfinder) miniature previews. Next week, we'll take a look at some of the figures in next wave of Deep Cuts unpainted plastic miniatures from WizKids. Until then, keep rolling 20s!

Has it been decided how this will affect the subscriber prices for case incentives? (I don't pay attention very well, to be honest... are they even still discounted?)

They’re still discounted (to $10) presumably this set will cost $20 for both.

I’m glad to hear the line is going strong. I’ve really felt the two lines developing in parallel has both spurred innovation and meant there are options if your preferred line doesn’t offer a specific mini you like.

The fact they can’t keep a consistent release schedule is annoying, but the D&D sets don’t sell out that quickly, as a general rule.

Can anyone who's knowledgable comment on why the case incentives for the "Kingmaker" set are being split into two seperate boxes for $34.99 each?

Thank you. :-)

It is true. For a variety of reasons, WizKids had to split them into independent products at a slightly higher per-figure price. The alternative was to offer only one figure as part of the Kingmaker set and push the other to a future set, but we didn't want to split the four Huge elementals over more than two sets, so this is the option we went with.

Thank you for commenting on this, Mark.

Even if the price increase from $50 to $70 is a steep one, i agree with the decision of keeping both minis in the same set.
They ARE massive. Especially the Water Elemental - it is almost gargantuan.

The next case incentive will probably be $49.99 again. ;-)

I bet it won't be a huge mini after three in a row (Hydra, Earth & Water Elemental), even if i like the fact that the missing huge creatures are finally being made.

Wizkids sadly doesn't seem to be willing to publish a Pathfinder Battles set including huge minis in boosters, so it may take years to get a (half-)complete collection of the most commonly encountered huge minis (like Aboleths, Bulettes, Froghemoths...)

I'm ok with this, as long as it isn't a preview of what's to come. Just don't want to see incentives bumped to $60-70 normal price and subscriber benefits bumped to $20.

A little more than 18 weeks until the intended october release date - i bet the previews will start again in early july.

It's getting really crowded for prepainted minis in the next months:

september 18th: D&D Icons of the Realms set 9: "Waterdeep: Dragon Heist" miniatures & hardcover adventure.

october 24th/31st: Pathfinder Battles set 15: "Kingmaker".

november 13th: D&D Icons of the Realms set 10 (no official name yet, but very likely "Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage", as the hardcover of the same name releases on the same day).

Please continue the previews as soon as possible, Mark, because i think the more cool minis are revealed, the higher the pre-order numbers get. :-)

16 weeks until Kingmakers intended release date.

4-8 weeks until the four ppm Starfinder packs are supposed to release.

Dark Archive

11 weeks until D&D Icons set 9 releases.

It will be interesting to see if we have any Starfinder ppm before august 13th.

My flagstore told me that the Starfinder ppms might arrive in late august, maybe we could get a preview of the actual minis?

The next full set to arrive is D&D Waterdeep: Dragon Heist in exactly 10 weeks...

15 weeks until the intended release date of october 24th for "Pathfinder Battles: Kingmaker"!
This will already be set #15 in less than seven years! :-)

Is two months a normal gap for Icons releases?

No, it's not.

Normally there are 5-7 months between two D&D Icons of the Realms (or Pathfinder Battles) sets nowadays.

The november set MAY yet be moved to december or january, as the september set "Waterdeep: Dragon Heist" was originally scheduled to release in july, but got moved to the same release date as the hardcover adventure.

But i think it will probably keep the november release date, to release together with novembers "Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage" hardcover.

Mark, any idea when the blog picks up again?

After Gen Con would be my guess.

There are 45 renders to preview and 15 weeks until the street date, which would mean 3 minis every week would work out exactly *hinthint* ;-)
