Friday Publisher Preview: Iconic Heroes Set 3 (Part 1)

Friday, October 24, 2014

Hard to believe it's Friday already, and time for another look at upcoming Pathfinder Battles miniatures!

This week we're taking a peek at three figures from March's Iconic Heroes Set #3, a stand-alone release featuring six figures. Unlike many of our Pathfinder Battles releases, Iconic Heroes sets do not come randomly packed. The same six figures are in every box, with a visible window to let you see what you're buying.

WizKids has really outdone themselves with premium sculpting and paint masters for the Iconic Heroes sets. The new digital sculpting process allows us to nitpick all of the little details that make our iconic characters iconic, and WizKids is planning to make the Iconic Heroes as beautiful as any figure we've ever done for the Pathfinder Battles line so far.

Another difference is that each Iconic Heroes set will include six exclusive cards for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, one for each character in the box. These cards can be used with any PACG campaign.

Let's take a look at some digital sculpts!

Up first this week is a familiar face, as we previewed her a couple of weeks ago in another blog. But in case you missed her, here's Alhazra, Human Oracle, from the Advanced Player's Guide. The amount of detailing on Alhazra's stole will push the factory to the limit, but I'm confident the final figure will look absolutely amazing!

Next up is the conniving Damiel, Elf Alchemist. We're excited about the level of detail that will go into Damiel's equipment, complete with clear potion bottles and a fully stocked alchemist kit/backpack. We see Damiel winding up to throw an alchemical bomb. Watch out!

My favorite for this week is Alain, Human Cavalier. His banner ripples in the wind at the end of his lance as his cloak billows behind him in dramatic fashion. Check out that banner and his tabard to see some of the coolest and most detailed tampo stamps we've ever done for Pathfinder Battles. Alain comes fully geared up and ready to kick ass, and I couldn't be happier with how he turned out.

We're only a couple of weeks from the November 19 release of the full The Lost Coast 45-figure blind-boxed set. Now is a good time to make sure that you've preordered or set up a Pathfinder Battles Ongoing Case Subscription to make sure you don't miss a single figure. The Lost Coast is one of my favorite sets in a while, and its loose theme means it's packed with a ton of figures usable in just about any campaign. We've also introduced new subscriber benefits with this release (30% off Pathfinder Battles purchases across the board, 75% off the limited-edition case incentive figure) that you'll definitely want to check out.

See you next week for three more iconics!

Third set, third group of excellent miniatures. Poses are amazing, they have a really dynamic feel. Can't wait to see these translated into plastic. I hope this line sells like crazy. I would really like to see all the iconics in all their various forms, including the antipaladin, please say it is so.

Then perhaps some sets of NPC's from the codices - the original NPC codex has some great mini potential and the newmonster codex is rife with plasticiseable (is that a word?) artwork

Does this mean we'll see Balazar and Padrig next week?

So, Alain confirmed for WotR? Sweet!

Another great looking iconic set!

However, I do keep looking forward though for news on the last Lost Coast miniature to be announced. Is Paizo saving the best for last, or just enjoying slowly torturing plasti-crack addicts?

Awesome preview! :)

Any word on when this season's convention promos will go for sale on the website? I've heard this might include:

Bloodbriar Goblin Raider (Promo 2014?: Goblin Head on Base)
Goblin Raider (Promo Gencon14)
Hellfire Wisp (Promo Paizocon14)
Slaver Demon (Promo 2014)

I have to say Damiel is my favorite of the three sculpts shown. Al three are nice of course, but I really like him the best.

Thank you Erik

Hellfire wisp was not PaizoCon unless somehow I missed him.


We will get Alahazra and Damiel in a few weeks and then a NEW Alahazra and Damiel in march? There are some iconics that have yet to see light in plastic form, and I would love to see them before new versions of the existing ones.

The iconics from the ACG, for instance, or Reiko, Hayato and Balazar.

But if Paizo and Wizkids can keep the schedule of 5 iconics every month, we should have them all before the summer, so I guess is ok anyway.

And since I am already posting, I would like to request more lance/spear wielding guys. There are very few of them, maybe because spears are too long and too brittle?


BTW, I just noticed that I can pre-order Iconic Sets #1 - #3 from the web, and we can check the minis in the march set.

I won't spoil it here so if you wanna see what other minis will we get with Alahazra, Damiel and Alain, check the store :)

A tip, though... One we have already seen in a previous set, and the other is a new iconics, of the ones I was just requesting ;)

Yes, we'll get to this probably by the end of the year. Just need to do a little coordination, but unfortunately the people who need to do it are pretty high-level and super busy/traveling at the moment.

Incidentally, I think we did the goblin-head base Raider at PaizoCon 2013. The Hellfire Wisp was at Origins and (I think) Dragon Con, not PaizoCon.

Anyway, sorry about the delay. We'll get these guys up.

We'll get to ALL of the iconics in this line. I thought it made sense to lump all of the Advanced Player's Guide classes into one set, so that's why you're getting what you get in this one. Which minis we've already done in sets are kind of irrelevant in relation to this line, because we're going to get to all of them.
