Well that's one thing I was hoping for, now I will get the dragon mounted maiden - extremely nice- and a for version, since the mini looks to be a pretty close match.

Thank you for finally producing an archer maiden, that was always a gap in my collection after the first maidens.

All three are good, solid choices and like Marco has implied the distribution looks to be spot on for them.

My only reservation: I hope they are a colour match for the ones previously released in shattered star. Maybe we can get a side-by-side comparison shot when you have the production minis in house?

Now the dragon. Is it my imagination or does Zarmangarof bear more than a passing resemblance to the incentive piece from heroes and monsters?

I agree 100%. Almost every medium has a very sloppy paint job and every PC type mini I pulled had NO FACE to speak of, a blood with a tampo for a face! That said in hand I was very happy with both sphinxes, the black pudding and the beholder - which I did not need at all since I have about 30 from all the releases over the years. Pathfinder battles in leagues ahead in terms of quality. I can only assume it's a QC thing?

I'll second a flying carpet.
Perhaps a floating disc as well.

I'll also reiterate something I've said many times before, use the same idea as the clix effect bases and you can have a shield spell, fire shield or any number of similar effects.

Any possibility of a hardcover collection of the talented classes. So far these have been a real revelation. Perhaps a talented pathfinder book? Kickstarter like the talented bestiary?

That is awesome news Erik, I cannot begin to tell you how happy this makes me. Enjoy your christmas.

Marco have you seen any images of the actual production minis on the unpainted line? Curious to see how they look.

It reads as problematic and I thought it would be more so in play, but having played the last half of wrath of the righteous with the RAE rules our group adapted very well, and we had a lot of swift actions in the party between the casters, paladin, inquisitor and the mythic rules. It actually served to tone down the power a bit and promoted some interesting tactics. We actually allowed multiple swift actions in a round - well up to three obviously - and this really took the sting out of the RAE/swift dilemma without any appreciable power creep. Of course more "streamlined" groups may be able to leverage more with this.

Worth noting is the dramatic shift in combat towards two weapon fighting and flurry of blows. We saw a big improvement in these combat styles.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Big fan of the book. Love the revised action economy, enough so that I'm happy to put in the extra work to nudge it along.

Unchained classes are much better in general, can't speak for the summoner since I haven't played it but it seems more balanced than the original.

The big benefit of the uBarb is that raging allows different builds now. My bonuses can add to Dex builds or other builds since it's an almost identical flat bonus. Most of the rage powers are improved as well, I hate 1/rage powers anyway.

I think the ABP works but we only tried it in our wrath of the righteous campaign, so not a good yard stick.

Do you mean the art from the original CotCT AP which is now the Bestiary art or the new art from the CoTCT hardcover (page 91)?

While i like both illustrations, i prefer the classic one, which is more general, over the named version.

But ultimately we need one done in PFB to complete the "group" (im not writing the more obvious word as not to spoil some people).

Original. I like the new art but the original, as you say, is a little more generic. Wouldn't mind some merrows ass well, although without the half eaten fish in their hands.

Grab is linked to making a successful attack rather than successfully damaging a foe - there are a few abilities stated that way as well so I assume there is a distinction on that basis.

Not a bad list Marco, although I hope we get a cytillipede in this or the next set. They seem to pop up a bit, plus a large centipede is always cool, especially if it matches the quality of the medium we've already got. A few derro variants would also be very nice, to round out the derro, say a mystic or a leader figure, there's certainly some excellent art out there, in the latest AP or the monster codex for instance.

This is based on a quick glance through but don't the creatures here seem routinely below the PCs level? Like around half.

Not sure if seated illeosa out of throne should be counted as a separate mini. 'After' Illeosa is a very nice mini indeed. Hope she's not plagued by the issues of her predecessor.

I truly love the throne. The addition,of the draped crimson cloth makes it pop and I think the idea of having a figure seated but removeable is great, now we'll need more seated figures.

However the highlight, the true masterpiece here is the bone devil. Not only is the render awesome (as hopefully will be the final figure but since its large I imagine the detailing will hold) but it's uncommon, uncommon I tell you. Well done.

As for red mantis glutton I think they are mentioned in the set description so we should get some hopefully, I've been championing them for some time now.

Are we also getting dressing pieces in addition to the incentive for thIs one Erik? I would hate to lose the dressing pieces, especially since we just got our first spell effect (which was a huge hit with out group)

I got my case yesterday. Imo it's the best paint jobs of all the sets, made so far. My only complaint is a few of the minis are too mini. Cthulhu, is painted and sculpted masterfully, but is WAY too small to properly represent the enormity that is Cthulhu. I also thought the salamanders, and cerberis are too small, but those may just my perception. If I could change only one thing, I would make Cthulhu at least three times larger.

Do you think this is because of the "emerging from water" effect? With his legs and rest of torso he would likely be around twice the height. I feel as you do, he is small but so well sculpted. As Marco said It is not Cthulhu himself though but one of the Starspawn.

I ALMOST agree with you Marco on the horror clix version. I thinks it's almost too large. The detail is amazing but it suffers from a serious flaw, when assembled the centre of mass is too far to the right and it develops a serious lean over time, tending to topple. It's a function of how the wings were positioned. Plus I wish they had just pushed that little further and sculpted both of his feet! Why must Cthulhu always be emerging from the water?

any chance of two more hobgoblins in the near future? Say the commander that looks pseudo samurai and a melee weapon common to complement the archer? I think these would round out the hobs well, perhaps the commander can be the one in the AP coming up?

As for buying singles of the dressing pieces. Try it being in Australia, by the time I get up in the morning they've usually been on sale for a few hours and consequently gone! I got a restock/Wishlist email from auggies and checked it as soon as I awoke - sadly all gone

Hmm. I just tried using prior sets and received the estimate of $227 via UPS for a case+incentive (I tried Wrath of the Righteous and Skulls and Shackles). However, I'm sure it didn't cost that much in reality (plus I've previously had other books along with the case), so I wouldn't rely on that methodology.

As a potentially useful datapoint, my Current Sub (Case + Incentive + 4 comics) is ($148-$10)=$138 to Adelaide.

That was my impression last set, I can't imagine prices have changed that much since the last set. I may as well just take the plunge.

I did look, it's $162 expected vs $72 expected for usps. I have gone ups in the past but I'm not sure I can afford $90 extra for the set. I am keeping my options open since I won't have to decide for a week or two yet.

The inn has been unavailable for some time but I'm hoping this may well be because the cases of RDI had sold out.

Sadly buying singles will be a bit of a guess again for those like me in Australia. Will they only be available for a month like last time? (I think it was a month). Sadly shipping typically takes about two weeks delivery time and I suspect singles may well be mostly gone by then.

Oh I agree it's certainly not a contest, 4 sets a year is a great addition to either game. Plus the success of both companies really boosts the future of the tabletop game. The "on deck" theory make sense also. Don't get me wrong that wasn't an angry rant just genuine curiosity. I would love to see you guys do huge minis the same way, come on Frogemoth and mobogo. I don't mind who brings out the minis, I think we're all very grateful to wizkids for bringing us quality minis, bar the few missteps (and they've really been in the minority truth be told) and I don't actually mind overlap since it gives me options to choose from.

I said it because I'd noticed it occurring a fair bit, I think Erik even did it once. I have no issue with saying wotc just find it amusing how it's danced around. I assumed it was a little tongue I cheek. I've seen it the other way around too when sites are reviewing and discussing the wotc minis and comparing them to "the other company".

Minis are minis, I know I'm not concerned about whether I have the official wotc or pathfinder one. I'd spend about the same on both lines, perhaps a little more on pathfinder because the quality is better. Are people that concerned that the Wotc ones would outsell the Paizo by such a margin to warrant the differences?

The only minis I llost all interest in are the unpainted minis after I noted they all have little strips of moulded earth under their feet. Before that I would have even bought some of those, and again about the same in each company. Oh well, hopefully the unpainted terrain will be better.

I'm just firing off the cuff here, there's bound to be a lot more going on in the background, but that's just how it looks to me. Don't get me wrong I ecstatic to have two lines punching out minis.

I think the Gm made the wrong call. You tried to avoid bloodshed, when you did slip in a lethal attack you responded to the looks fro others and changed you strategy again. And I teckin your lethal attack wouldn't have been lethal anyway given the mechanics of the game. You tried everything to save those involved and chose a complete innocent over someone who chose a path where the possession was a (very slim) possibility.

I love the UC book, so much of the content is an interesting alternative that I try to incorporate as much as possible. I would love a second unchained book.

As for the classes; had to start somewhere. I'm almost 100% certain the fighter would have been a poison chalice for the first UC book. So many people disregard the attraction of a fighter and cry for it to be improved, improved, improved. I think they should be reigning in other classes at higher levels to bring about parity.

UCB is excellent for non strength builds and 2W builds. I think the "simpler" rage is much more maneagable at the table. I like the stances and think they scale fine. I do agree there should be a way to reduce them to swift actions, perhaps move to start and swift to change once in a rage. As far as classes go this is far from the worst. Purpose of the UC book was not to produce super classes.

I think kinetecist is possibly a worse class, and I find nearly all full casters far worse to have at the table. Casters are so limited at low level (except perhaps the slumber witch), great in the middle levels and then abysmally unbalanced at higher levels. If anything a spellcasters unchained should come out that nerfs higher level play for casters, from around 11th on that severely limits 7-9 spellcasting.

I didn't buy a case, just the minis I was interested in, which turned out to be a lot in the end - to the point where I may as well have bought one.

I'd agree with the thoughts above, the huge Giants are incredible. I love the cloud Giants but can understand how the pseudo anime style may not appeal. However the rare female Sansuri is extremely nice. The Storm Giants are incredible.

As for the frosties. I agree with you Steve in regard to Hashnarg (the rare male), he is incredible, I wish he were large mind you. The female just don't work for me, it's either the proportions or colouring, or both.

I use the hill as a mountain giant, but the sculpt is very nice.

The two fire Giants will work as enlarged Giants and/or make a great king and queen of their race.

The disappointment was the formorian. Next to the other he felt small and his lack of bulk next to the others just felt like a let down really.

On the mediums. I love the yochlol, night hag (the best to date probably), the sprites (awesome) and frog (very realistic sculpt). The purebloods and the snake tailed Malison are also nice in hand.

I was surprised at how much I liked the two bandits and strangely despite the very small size I ave a soft spot for the intellect devourer. I didn't hunt down any of the others.

Overall the huges are a real addition to my collection. Other than that I didn't really add a lot to my collection form this one.

I also don't think variant weapons should be counted as two sculpts in a set but it does at least offer a bit of variation on the table.

Overall I'm impressed with the improvement in quality and hope the trend continues into monster menagerie 2.

The Cave Giant is heavily bent over, almost crouching.

Ah thanks for that. Its not as evident in the small photos from wizkids. Nice to know since the cave giant is one of the three Giants I've been anxiously awaiting (Shadow being the second, ash the third). In all honesty I think thus is an extremely nice set and It's really straining my patience waiting for it to ship.
