For quoting Eric on is Friday, December 19, 2014 pathfinder battles preview
<< I can't show off any of the numerous awesome images I'd love to unleash on you as a special gift from Santa.
But leaking images out of the elves' workshop before their time is a good way to disappear in a suspicious sleigh accident, so I'm afraid there's nothing I can do but look over these images myself and smile about what's in store.>>
So big red dragon is a late sleigh accident from the big red guy, for being good person for a whole month without any image preview ;P

My first idea about a jade regent path set in the past would have been to combine it with skull and shackles, 70 mini set 35/35 each. Name it Pirate vs Ninja, that sound like a seller. But alas, skull shackle already out. To bad for me a Jade Regent adventure path will never appen, it migh contain viking, inuit and eastern mini but would need half asian themed mini and it would not sell you say.
Its a complicate business ppm, I feel over satured with orc, goblin, dragon, giants, minotaurs, demon copy paste that compose a set and a bunch of npc i only need one of each. I feel tire buying the same thing over again. Just a quote from Dungeon Crawler mini; the pre-gen minis are considered an extravagance as PCs/NPCs tend to be the most expensive to produce (for figures of the same size/material, due to paint steps) and hold the lowest interest by consumers (1 copy each). Some say don't buy if you don't like and then we get told buy them or else they will kill the line. Id like my wanted stuff to be done one day so i need to continue buying stuff not to my liking for maybe one day get what i want. Damn you my minority taste :P
Here the mini still missing from Rise of the runelord (put an * for the most important)
GOGMURT goblin druid rogue (small)*
Iesha Foxglove REVENANT (med)
Avaxial, the pit fiend (large)
WARDEN OF WINDS cloud giant (huge)*
THE HORROR TREE Unique undead treant (Gargantuan)

How many people would tolerate Tiny fey about the size of the demonic familiar or dero from Shattered Star?
I would tolarate,if its the only way to give them jusice, better a little bit bigger and nice detailed fey then small faceless fairy.
At miniature scall the weapon are often oversize so I can totally understand for thing smaller then small size being bigger then suppose to.
The right size I think, should be for the body to be no taller then Lyrie Akenja cat mini.
We know wizkid can make great figure,you just have to push them a bit and make sure they dont use lazy solution ;)
For realy small fay you could make them like the Will O'Wisp, inside a transparent plastic globe of light, with transparant plastic pixi dust like Mesmalatu the demi lich mini to keep them in the air. Seem doable and would save there delicate sculpt from breacage.
Fairy companion is realy popular among my player, second only to wolf and horse. Popularity must be from character like Link from legend of Zelda, one of the 3 most iconic elfs every noob player base there charater. (the 2 other are dark elf Drizzt and high elf Legolas)So we have hores, dog, wolf, panter mini, we need the little medical fairy for companion for saving those lonely ranger character that get ther healing spell so late. Need fairy because. Its dangerous to go alone.

They said at gama : Past Winter there are fully three sets in development, and Paizo is looking at revisiting the initial product launch with new iconic character packs!So is the iconic packs is the new builder you talk about Vic?
An idea for a garg dungeon themed mini would be a Construct of some kind or a Red dragon, for iconic dungeon creature.A Shamizan demon or Linorm would be my personal choice. And if you realy want to go head to head against D&Ds mini that will realese a garg Tiamat, you should go collosal with a Ctuhlu or Tarrasque, all those would sell like crazy. Good idea?
Surely Arueshalae made the set right?
Erik Mona: Wait till you see the prepainted miniature...4 octobre, 14:04
Wayne Reynolds Artworks: Erik Mona Oh my word! I eagerly anticipate seeing the mini. There's something thrilling about seeing 2D artwork transformed into 3 dimensions that is so appealing
from Wayne Reynolds facebook on Arushalae comment!!
The hammer head sharkwas shown at the SDCC concention. seltyiel is previewed in the catalog.And the last mini no one seem to remember was previwed in the first Undead Horde as the Wight. Well now that we know all the skull shakle mini, could we also get 1 from Legends of Golarion in next preview, pretty please mister Mona :D

If I would get visible pack containing something like ddm huge red GoL (YES), ddm Eldritch Giant (mm okay),ddm Goristro (still okay mini) and then get ddm Yuan-ti Anathema or Enormous Carrion Crawler or Chain Golem (yuks those 3 are a waste). It would stil be worth it to me and would buy a pack like this because I get something awsome, something enormous, something good that grow on me over time and a 4th sculpt that might be usful in an adventure path someday even if I hate the scupt. Anyway, hater will hate, even if you try to please everybody, mr. Mona. Not every one will like this model of packaging. Economicly speaking, I think its the most approriate model for Pathfinder Battles line for avoiding pegwarmer with the least popular huge mini.
Also whant to Thank you mr. Mona for all the interaction you give to us, think its realy something special and its why i like paizo so much. Can not wait to see those other lovercraft monstrosity you got i store for us. By the way my favorite mini are devil and demon so if there is somme in this set, so if you feel like showing some (or just say if the set contains somes) for next preview, I will stop being anoying until the final preview.
About the garg blue dragon rumor, I don't think people don't want repeat, they just want to have a garg green and everything that has not been already done first,, then they will gladly take the new sculpt. We will only get around 2 to 3 gargantuan per year and can understand getting frustrated from waiting for what we want. I know for myself im not getting any youger, I'l be 30 in lest than 2 years, and I'l be collecting least and least so I want to get my all my dream mini (colosal Tarasque please) before I feel to old for the hobby.
Love your idea of 3 or 4 huge visible pack Cat-thulhu, they could make 2 to 3 different set of 3 huge mini per release and im sure it would sell. Seriously there aint lot of huge that you need more than one so random is just frustrating for the price, and we know that dragon are the hot sellers so make some pack contain atleast one dragon or demon/devil and 2 other huge moster or giant.
Well it just that my favorite mini are the non humanoid end I only got the gug as an appetiser so far. But dont get me wrong i still LOVE some of those human monster and cant wait to see that headless knight and the gray maiden from the adventure path cover in miniature form. Come on mr. Mona, feed me more. ;)

Okay for those not mentioned I would say Sheriff Hemlock (on my realy want list), Sandpoint Devil, Attic Whisperer maybe Boggard and a clear plastic ghost of some kind... lamia cleric, Clockwork Librarian, some giant (ice, hill zombie,runeslave Marsh dont know),Shining Child, Totenmaske, Smoke Haunt,Skul Ripper, Stone Golem, Black Monk mummy, Yethazmari, Witchfire, ice devil end thats all. Think I named every thing that could possibly make it in the final spot.
Well only 19 more mini to be revealed.
1.GOBLIN WARCHANTER (confirmed)
that leave 13 spot to speculate.
6.The Scarecrow, Flesh Golem (sure bet)
not enough spot left for every thing, sad.

So, is that mean that he is suppose to be release in a near future or Lini is the last of the iconic? What about the march release, we saw the green of the red dragon on reaper mini page, is there anything coming out with it? Thanks for the quick reply
