I'd love to do a trollhound mini.

Agree. I too would love you to do a troll hound! And a red mantis, and a colloxus demon (c'mon fly head), and a shadow giant, and....hmmm quite a lot actually but I'll happily start with a troll hound ( and maybe a huge kakuen taka in a future encounters set?)

I think you could have a success by just releasing smaller iconics packs, say 4,5 or even 6 minis. Much like the original release or the new D&D starter. I know I'd be up for them.

Yay another Ogre is coming. Hope it's a female Kreeg. See, I can read anything I want into 6 little words.

I also just realised there is only 19 to go and we haven't see any large rares. If it's anything like the previous set that means 4 more medium rares at least and 4 large. Given how good the uncommons look I can't wait to see these rares.

It also means we may see the set by the end of August? Not released until November, so heres; hoping there are some other releases to "fill" the time between now and the release of this set.

These previews will also see me order 2 cases again - assuming I can do that since the capability doesn't appear to exist at the moment.

Wow. All three look remarkable.

Conna looks to be an almost perfect match for the stone giants from the Runelords set in terms of both scale and color. I for one appreciate the attempts to keep the minis in the line cohesive. The level of detail is fantastic. She has great facial features and the artful use of the bear skin to cover her bare skin in spot on, much better than a tube top for instance. Plus she's uncommon so I can now add 3-4 females to my growing stone giant collection, thankfully theres an AP coming I may be able to use them in.

The Fire Giant is the one that causes me some internal conflict. He looks truly incredible, but he also looks to be much larger and very differently coloured to the one from Shattered Star. Didn't the first have brownish lave like skin? I'll probably use the 3-4 I get as advanced giants if I can overlook the crown. The detail is great, you can even see the individual muscles on his arms! I am curious why he's such a different color to the first one? Why the fiery red skin vs the lava like? Why silver/blue armour instead of gold? Is it just to emphasise the status difference? I do think that crown need a metal finish, gold or silver rather than the yellow it looks to be now.

Munguk looks awesome and is my favourite in the reveal. He was also coincidentally one of my favourite encounters in Kingmaker. He's most definitely going to have to act as an advanced hill giant (advanced and hill giant in one sentence, who's have thunk it) since he looks to be so much larger and bulkier than the previous giant. This one really brings home the attention to detail, from the tendons in the arms to the skull necklace and the dumb look upon his face. Add to that the painted details, the snotty nose and the wine dribbles, and you have a masterpiece. My only concern is the andy-pandy suit he's wearing, but the more I Look the more that grows on me too.

3 for 3 again Erik. As giant leaders these three hit the mark perfectly. Despite their higher status I'm also glad to see them as uncommons. Of course this leaves me wondering what the large rares will be after seeing such great uncommons.

The detail here really leaves me hoping the paint jobs in this set are up to scratch. These minis so far all deserve, no demand, good paintjobs to highlight the efforts that have gone into the sculpts.

Any chance of other giant varieties in the near future? I'm specifically talking cave and ash giants since they stand out in my mind. Since we got the marsh giant in legends I've been eagerly awaiting more subspecies.

Sadly can you also cancel the cards line after this months ship (very much looking forward to the Tides of Battle cards). I will continue to add them as I need (want?) them of course, and will probably renew after the next few sets of face cards (not likely to run these and I have many, many face cards now, sadly knowing me I'll probably add them to my collection at a later date)

I've had almost the same GreyWolfLord. I've had to reign but a fair bit to avoid killing the party. So far anyway. I'll wait until later in the AP before I get too excited, but so far we all seem to agree this is a fun AP.

I did nerd MPA though. It's now equivalent to deadly aim. Also made furious focus a viable option for 1 character - a cleric of Shelyn.

I'm sure this has been stated somewhere else, but I just don't know and am curious...will the Heroes & Monsters set ever be reprinted? Understand the AP sets probably wouldn't be, but the more "basic" sets make since to reprint in order to keep in stock.

Wizkids rarely, if ever, reprint their minis. They do recycle a lot of sculpts in the heroclix line; but I don't see them doing it here. Most of the H&M monster are available on this site as singles. You can also find them online, although that is getting harder.

This was also a set with no AP. Being the first it was a fairly generic set to test the waters

You know looking at the new base classes I hope they don't make the old ones redundant. I'm mainly thinking of the magus, I can't see how he will hold up against the warpriest and the bloodrager. Suppose I'll just have to wait for the final clases.

The haughty avenger doesn't do much for me (I'll wait until I have her in hand to judge). She looks like the sort of mini that just won't pass into the production line quality all that well. The other two, however, are awesome. That Shoanti is a piece of art by itself. So glad to see one in plastic at long last, now we just need a Shoanti shaman. As has been the case so far, almost perfectly spot on with the rarities. My only issue with the elf - he's rare. I need more than 1, so it looks like this will be by return to 2 cases set, assuming I can sub for 2 cases still - technical errors seem to prvent multi case subs at the moment.

Glad to hear the Feiya issue is still moving ahead. Personally I repainted the face on mine and she now looks perfectly passable, not great but certainly good enough to use, which is in fact what is being done. Our witch player loves using her to represent her own witch. Hopefully by artistic improvements don't affect what happens.

I'm still holding out for a Red Mantis, but I also expect to see some mundane Boggards in this one. I think your right to see this set as a favourite, it stands to be the best one yet for me, hopefully QC and production live up to what this set deserves.

Quick question. Are we likely to see packs of iconics again, we have several now and repaint packs of collected sets would be good. They are really hard to get now and with a tiny improvement in the painting would be awesome to have. Sets of 5? Especially if we could get the new iconics from the Advanced class guide, Mr Reynolds artwork for them is incredible. I wait with great anticipation for the GENCON minis announcements...

I'd like them in print. Could easily have a "whatever" compendium 1, then update when several more books to "whatever" compendium 2. I have a real thing for print books. I've found ultimate equipment one of our main go to books, along with the NPC codeces. I hope we get an ultimate equipment II in the future, we're getting a monster codex in the same vein as the NPC one and hopefully more to come.

Indeed it should be. Where you bolded the -1 it should be 5 higher. You read the ability correctly. It's a very good ability and I feel they got the balance spot on for this one.

Thanks Erik, almost everything appears to have moved into the subs authorising today. I still appear to have a bloodbriar goblin in both my sidecart and the order list for this sub. Also the earth and air elementals are still in the sidecart. Is this still the same error or are those particular minis unavailable at the moment? I thought they were at the time of ordering but I was admittedly flicking rather quickly between pages.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

My latest subscription is authorising. it contains the comic only but I added few mini I wanted. I note now on the subs page that the large earth and air elementals have moved back into my sidecart to ship at a later date, along with the goblin it seems. Is there a problem with these minis? Glitch?

It's now posted on the Paizocon round up page. Looks awesome. Incredible sculpt and if the detail and paint are even half as good as this it will be the best incentive yet (and I'm totally impartial of course). Only criticism, seems very brightly coloured.

Yeah I imagine the next pfb set will be announced at gen con. Love the Shemhazian, although his colours look really bright for a demon wrecking machine. Man does it look big! I couldn't be happier, although I hear my wallet weaping.

Agreed. For example, take a monk or fighter level 11, before any penalties:

Fighter imp 2wpn, light weapons
Main +9/+4/-1
Off +9/+4

With precision
Main +9/+9/-1
Off +9/+4
Overall (so it looks same as monk) +9/+9/+9/+4/-1
If you take precision twice. +9/+9/+9/+4/+9
A third time makes no difference at this time

Monk flurry
+9/+9/+4/+4/-1

With precision. +9/+9/+9/+4/-1
With precision twice. +9/+9/+9/+4/+9

In both cases the 2 wpn attacks are still at BAB & BAB -5, since the feats grant an additional attack albeit at a penalty of...
I think the numbers are right.

Looked at it, thought it was OK. Will most likely buy the 3 basic books, but like Asgetrion I am heavily invested in Pathfinder. In time I may buy more but it depends on what aspects of the game the splat books add. I have little faith in Hasbro and WotC unfortunately so my investment is heavily biased by my distrust of the parent company.

I will say that to me it seems fairly...vanilla(?) on my initial read. Some low scaling bonuses and mechanics that may make a long term higher level game feel no different to the basic. I hate the advantage/disadvantage rules. I've played with a witch and against one and I will say form my perspective rolling 2 dice, taking the worst, is frustrating and sucky for even a short time.

I'll wait until it hits the shelves in its final form, although that will occur over 3 months I believe.

That was a surprisingly more direct answer then I was hoping for, thanks!
Me too—I don't think Reaper has actually told anyone that yet...

I'd like to see the new iconics in the pathfinder battles line! Say a set of 10 minis, 1 of each. Or perhaps 2 sets of 5? Maybe 5 sets of 5 to cover ALL the iconics(new and old). Now that would be awesome.

It has six levels of spellcasting. why in the world would you think it needed anything else.

On the one hand we have the Warpriest: D8 HD, 3/4 BAB, strong Fortitude and Will save, 6th level cleric spell list.

More than any other ACG class, the class features will make or break the Warpriest. Come on too strong and it might will the fighter or even the paladin, come on too weak and it'll be ignored for the Cleric and the inquisitor.

It's a tricky class to balance because it's trying to make a niche for itself in a fairly crowded design space.

100% agree. I'm looking forward to seeing the complete class because of the possibilities of the class feature. I almost of the belief the ONLY full BAB in the game should have been the fighter. Barbarian, ranger and a paladin should use 3/4 BAB and use their class abilities to compensate.

I can't see why. Arcane reservoir must be limited in size, hopefully still draws on a second stat and is useful for other things. If an arcanist wants to use all of his reservoir to open up his spell selection then fine, it removes the other abilities - the wide variety they gave the class according to this preview. I see no balance issue here, I think people may be overreacting to a preview of a tiny part of the class. There are a lot of unknown still that may address the "why didn't they listen to us?" issue. Did they change the base caster progression? how many points in the reservoir?

I have little to no tendancy to play pure casters in the game anyway, but the arcanist has me thinking I may try it out. I like it. In fact I like the look of the advanced class guide overall so far. Do I need 10 more base classes? I don't really know, but I don't have to but the book. I will, since I like the production quality of paizo's books, and it means I'll keep my options open.

My emerald spire stuff just arrived today but sadly the kickstarter exclusive blood briar goblin is missing an arm- the one that holds the horse chopper- it's simply not there. I am not certain what the best course of action is in regard to this. I know he is a limited mini. I'm hesitant to go through wizkids since it costs me a hot yo return things from here, Australia. Can you offer me any help or advice.

By the way rest of the stuff is awesome. Nice work on the whole emerald spire. Packaging of my sub was perfect as always

The ability to order multiple cases as part of a subscription looks to have disappeared from the subscription page. Is it no longer possible? Does it not matter now? I always thought it was a cheaper option.

What about the the Gargantuan Rune Giant? The Cyclops (Skull and Shackles), Mokmurian (Stone Giant from Rise of the Runelords), the Gug (Shattered Star, and tallest giant in size large to date)? And no mention of the 5 Ogres (Jaagrath Kreeg is bigger than the stone giants (not taller, but certainly bulkier).

I tend to ignore anything huge and above since these are a rarer or special case. As for Mokmurian, he was a unique character and a runt for his species, but yeah that does give us 3 stone giants. I just can't think of gugs as giants, that seems so mundane for those particular twisted abominations.

I also tend to think of Ogres like trolls, a separate offshoot of the species. I'm always happy to see more ogres because they can be used so often.

I wouldn't mind seeing another Cyclops actually, I completely forgot about them. U loved the skull and shackles one.

Redoing the troll is a sensible option. It was the one mini in the original set that attracted the most negative attention. Its' scale was way out, and so many people at the time asked for abetter way of a more appropriate scale. I think paizo/wizkids have done the right thing here in giving people a standard troll that fits in with the trolls form their other sets. It's no worse than having 4 varieties of Ogre after all.

I think the line should last a while yet (hopefully), so I'm confident I'll see more of my small, medium and large desires. If I had one wish for the line it would be to see the huge miniatures successful so we can see more of these in plastic. The one a set (ie every 4-5 months) gargantuan is a fantastic addition to the line, but the 1/set really limits how quickly those many, many gargantuan creatures can be covered. Of course now that I'm getting the Shemhazian demon I really can't complain.

On a side note I wouldn't mind seeing from oozes and slimes, they are still very underrepresented. While they are simple, in transparent plastic and with a few devoured bodies effects they could be great. Especially if could get a gelatinous cube, I know wizards did one but it sells for such insane prices now.

I image I'd also be in the minority here, but a few more lovecraftian horrors would appeal to me too.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Awesome! Looks like I'll need to keep my eyes peeled for those.

Just did a quick size comparison. Looks like the giants sizes go (smallest to largest):

Stone giants x2(Runelords)
Ice trolls (RoW)
Hill Giant (SS)
Marsh giant (LoG)
Frost Giant
Fire Giant (SS)
Sea Troll (SS)
This troll
Troll champion.

That's some big trolls. Curiously it also means we have 5 trolls to date (6 if you include tiny) and 6 giants (7 If you include the storm). I would love to see some more giants given the vast variety of them in the game. Perhaps a female fire, hill, frost or stone (Conna the wise?). Ash or cave giant, there art is pretty amazing. A second male fire or frost giant would be cool - love the originals, but variety is always good on the tabletop. But then my sets would need to be 100's on minis in size to met all my needs (perhaps wants is a better term).

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Nice set of previews.
I do believe WotC did do an idstalker before with a very similar pose. The colour on this looks better, a lot more brain like and he seems to have his little brain sucking tongue! Uncommon too so I can get my 4-5 in a case.

I truly, truly love that Gnome! It is so good to see the little folk get some incredible minis. This just reinforces the need to get faces spot on for this set. DO I need 4-5, maybe not but I think the others at my table will be more than happy to get one of these from me. Then we can argue over who gets to play him first!

Troll. I can see why you're thrilled. He looks amazing, seems to be the almost the exact same size as the sea troll form skull & shackles - so spot on for me. And he's uncommon. So I get 3-4 in a case. Couldn't ask for more really. Looks to me like you have the rarities spot.

I'm getting quite excited for this set and so far I'm 19-0 on the must have count.

Thanks for keeping us posted in regard the Feiya issue.

I can't compare goblins since my kickstarter stuff is still making its way across the globe :( What I do know is I wish I had ordered more of the kickstarter minis when I had the chance. I can solve your problem with those minis today! Why wait for another day...Are we likely to see them available for purchase here? How about the caustic stalker, mudlord or the spider?

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That's what I interpret it as. That said it means the ability costs you your standard and your swift action for the round, but means you can retain/recast an added 25 spells per day at 5th tier.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Does that not mean it would function as a metamagic quickened spell of any level for 1 MP! I always thought the MP just meant you didn't lose the spell slot/prepared spell, not that you got to cast as a swift action. This means it provides you with ~25 bonus maximum level spells per day at 10th tier, 5 at first tier.

I suppose I interpret is as the whole sentence not just emphasizing the first part. That is to say, the last part is also a key point and the swift action means you don't use the spell slot.

As a swift action, you can expend one use of mythic power to cast any one arcane spell without expending a prepared spell or spell slot.

Great news Vic. Let me once again reiterate how nice it is to deal with a company that really communicates with its customers.

I'm assuming the colours on Malagus match the runelord ogres? He seems a little greener but I think that is just the photo.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Love them. The Ironbriar is perfect for so many different things and its a beautiful mini. Nice sculpt, nice colour scheme, well detailed face - disdainful and haughty. Hopefully the facial detail on this and the other NPC's are sculpted deep enough that they won't be lost in casting or obscured in painting. Get the detail on that face right and he is yet another winning NPC type for this set. At 1/case for a rare this seems like an all round big plus.

Ever since I saw the art for the Koruvus I've been begging for this mini. He looks simply awesome (Now if we can get Ranzak all will be good). What can I say, Koruvus and the Shamhazian! It's promising to be a dream set for me AND it releases around my birthday! Since he's uncommon I'm not sure I'll need 2 cases since I'll net 4 of him in the one case.

I assume from the scale of Malugus that the Kreegs will set the standard scale for Ogres? This makes the smaller Ogre in Runelords the lonely runt sadly. On the plus side I now will have three different Ogres for my table - just need a female now (Mammy for sure but perhaps even Dorella, I'm sure she would translate into a great mini). I'm not fussed by having another male mind you, Ogres are such a common low-mid level foe that variety of sculpt is a huge plus. Again uncommon so I can even get 3+ from a case.

If this set is like Reign then the new distribution and numbers means I can get pretty well get all I need in 1 case, however these are looking good enough for me to buy two and split the second with a mate.

Again I hope the production woes that plague some of the line can be resolved, this like Legeneds looks to be crown jewel of a set and I'd hate to see the final production run diminish what would be such a great set. Personally I seem to have been incredible lucky with my cases, aside form a few patchy paint jobs my sets have all be quite passably painted and produced (yep, even my Feiya).

Reading the first part seems to imply we may see some crimson throne minis, perhaps:
A Shoanti (krojun eats-what-he-kills! Thousand bones),
Jolistina Susperio,
plaguedoctor,
Pilts Swastel (nice contrast to our other "nobles"),
Togomor and Pudgeknuckles,
A red mantis assassin (Just saying)
or even another Illeosa as she appears at the end, sort of a redux to get her perfect.

Noe, more than ever we need wizkids to meter faces. These two NPCs are awesome!
I also can not tell you how happy I am to see a leucrotta, one of my favourite, and hence my players least favourite, monsters. This is shaping up to be a great set.

Are the paint masters made with the same plastic as the production models? The level I'd detail looks like they use the more brittle stuff, similar to runelords. I know I'm in the minority, but with new packaging I think I may well prefer the older harder plastic, it kept mould detail much better. Looking over my pfb I can't help but think less details in the moulds has added to some of the face woes in the humanoids.

But at her than detract from these previews let me just say again - looking yo be a great set, maybe even a 2 case set for me! Of course that has the added bonus of 2 shemhaziAns. Now do we get the large black dragon here or in an evolution set? How about a cool harrower complete with translucent card shuffling effect? Gnolls, man of I want to see some gnolls. Or even...hmm this could go on for a while.

I have actually seen pics on ebay of some acceptable Freiya minis ( ie the exact opposite of the one shown). I really do think wizkids need to work on NPC/PC faces and detail. They are a significant part of each set and seem to be the worst translated from proof to final, weird when you consider how well done the monsters are. Also I feel sorry for the folks at paizo, they must get just as disappointed as we do. Realistically though I think the stinker list may reach a dozen across the 5 sets from Runelords to reign, that's about 12 in 250 minis. Overall I'm still pretty happy with the line.

I don't think there's any intent to deceive on anyone's part, mass production has some issues.

Any news on when these will be available to buy without need for a case purchase?

Hmmm, feeling a little down on this one. I was really keen to get mine, but reading these posts, and some from other forums, I'm not certain anymore. I really wish wizkids would put the time into faces, well NPCs in general. Part of me really hopes the decline isn't due to the upcoming WotC minis. Previews for that line look pretty good, lots of detail and NPCs look to have some well detailed faces, much like the first 3 sets for pathfinder ( Runelords, skull and shattered). then again these are proofs and the reign minis looked good in the proofs as well - especially Feiya.

Of course I'll wait until mine are in hand, I really want a lot of the minis from this set. I will be in for the next anyway since it basically contains more minis I want ( and that Shemhazian!)
