Sorry to jump back a set, but does anybody know the source material for the illustrations (and possible stat blocks) of the Halfling Butcher and Pretty Goblin from Maze Of Death?
No problem Pigraven. :-)
I'm pretty sure the "Halfling Butcher" is from Book 1 or 2 of the "Hell's Vengeance AP (#103 or #104) and has a stat block in there.
The "Pretty Goblin" i don't remember exactly (it was just a random piece of art somewhere in the back of a hardcover), but i'm pretty sure it has no stat block.
On another note:
Some thoughts on the number of pawns provided:
The person responsible for choosing the numbers provided for every creature has done a good job.
There are a few exceptions:
There could have been more "Drow Enforcers", "Space Goblins", "Hesper" or "Ikeshti" instead, but that´s a minor concern remedied with buying a second box.
Mostly a very good selection. Having more pawns than needed is better than the alternative.
I´ll put up a proper review once i have the physical product in hand.
These look really great. What I always find challenging about the map packs though is how to set up these 'feature' terrain tiles into a coherent battle map without generic terrain tiles to go with them to use to place around these feature tiles. In this pack the generic tiles would simply be white snow tiles. Anyone else have this problem?
Yes, you are not alone with that.
There are other map-packs which work better by themselves or with another map pack, but some, like Desert Sites, have the same problem.
An okay stand-in for both desert & ice is this:
It's free, and there is a ton of options.
I really liked your review of "Ultimate Wilderness", it was short but on point. :-)
As you are often the first to rate a product, but in most cases don´t explain why it gets the rating, i often can´t comprehend it.
Thanks and have a nice weekend!
I guess i won't be buying any Starfinder minis then and stick to the pawns for special creatures and use Star Wars, Warhammer 40K & PFB minis for the rest.
I also would be very surprised if Ninja Devision really makes that march date a reality.
The only thing they seem to work at momentarily, seems to be the Kickstarter and the pledge manager has already been moved to january 2018...
It seems to be the room where the staircase leads to, there is a trapdoor in the floor if you look closely. ;-)
Hi Erik, i hope you´re well!
1.)Will the 10-headed Hydra in the Pathfinder Battles Set 14 "Jungle of Despair" be of HUGE or GARGANTUAN size?
2.)So i guess that means Pathfinder Battles Set 15 will have the "Huge Earth & Huge Water Elemental" as case incentives?
3.)How many of these creatures are in PFB: JoD:
Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions in here.

A picture with information about the type on one side (like Thaumtech Necroglider, Affiliation: Corpse Fleet, Crew: one...)and a picture of shields/hull points on the other, together with relevant info like weapon damage, pilot bonus, maneuverability...
These would be really handy, as looking up every single ship and what kind of bonus which system provides is a real pain, especially when you have a spacefight with multiple ships.

It´s far easier to write "Skittermander 1", "Skittermander 2"... on the Initiative counter than to write "Skittermander Blue", Skittermander Yellow" and so on.It´s a space issue.
So yes, i´m more of a numbers guy, even if both numbers and colors would be the best of both worlds.
Thank you for asking, Vic.
And thank you very much @Owen for explaining "Summon Monster". :-)
Pathfinder Battles set 14: Jungle of Despair has been announced!
-Tanuki (Bestiary 3)
-Hollow Serpent (Bestiary 3)
-Serpentfolk Fighter (Monster Codex)
-Giant Leech (Bestiary 2)
-King of the Jungle (?)
The set list has been added!
It's good to see that every creature gets at least 2 pawns and that creatures which are encountered in groups get up to six pawns.
Can anybody who knows provide an answer to how many creatures of one type the new "summon monster" spell can conjure?
While i agree that waiting for part 5 or 6 to be out before beginning to read/prepare an AP makes for the best coherent roleplay experience, it's a much more difficult thing to do with this first Starfinder AP, as one has to wait 11 months instead of the usual 5 until the last part releases.
On the other hand, i don't think this AP is breaking down after book #4, as most Pathfinder APs i took part in did.

Thank you for taking the time to reply so thoroughly, it´s very much appreciated.
It really clarifies some issues for me.

Thank you for the reply, Vic. :-)
I guess Wizkids is focussing more on huge minis being part of their D&D minis (the upcoming Monster Menagerie 3 being the 2nd set to include huge minis), but as i remember it, Paizo pitches minis ideas to them and they either okay them or don´t. ;-)
As i have come to know the Wizkids minis team, they won´t change anything in the booster composition by themselves.
It´s a little unfortunate that D&D 5 has huge miniatures available in their boosters, but Pathfinder only had them in their 2nd set... ;-(

You could also be super-devilish and just put itupside down to place a medium mini on it. ;-)
Heres a picture of all dungeon dressings.
As you can see by the packaging, the fireplace definetly replaces a large mini, as does the portcullis (which unfortunately seems to be bended and warped in every single case i´ve seen).
The altar, fountain & Knight statue replace a medium miniature.
I can´t really be 100% sure about the barred door, but normally only two of the six dressing pieces replace a large mini in a case, so i´d guess it replaces a medium mini despite being something between medium and large.

Hey Erik, it´s great to have you back here offering your thoughts!
No big deal with the Water Elemental - we´ll get it next year. ;-)
You´re probably reluctant to do sets including huge minis in boosters for all kinds of (good) reasons (booster size, changing set composition, sales), but will there ever be an Aboleth?
As far as dressing repaints go:

Yes, i remember reading it is either planned for a november or december reprint.But i think the core Rulebook reprint (which i´ll buy despite having the first printing) is due in december, so who knows?
Personally i hope the "sold out before street date" situation will end with "Pact Worlds" & AP #7.
I read all of the bulletin points and I'm excited for this book, but how much more are you guys going to talk about the planets themselves with the gazetteers and not just copy and paste from Pathfinder Distant Worlds book?
I have been wondering about that too, but with Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Distant Worlds only 64 pages strong and including a Bestiary section of Lashunta, four-armed giants of Akiton, Contemplatives, undead Bone Sages of Eox, the Forever Queen, Dragonkin, Brethedans & Oma, which have all been updated to the Alien Archive, it has to contain more than the four-page entries about the planets.
That being said, there are other things than the planets planned in Pact Worlds too.
Something which a "Robert Silvester" wrote on the Starfinder Kickstarter page:
"NOTE TO CANADIAN BACKERS:
SPM/ND promised shipping from a depot in Canada for their Rail Raiders Infinite campaign, so as to avoid/minimize shipping and customs charges.
Today, with the project a year overdue, they suddenly announced that this will not happen...
SPM (Soda Pop Miniatures): "I have confirmed that Canadian pledge rewards will be distributed from our fulfillment center in the United States. I understand that we stated differently on the campaign page, and I have no insight into this difficult decision. I apologize for any fees or taxes our Canadian backers may need to pay to receive their packages."
DO NOT TRUST THEIR ASSURANCES ABOUT ANYTHING BEING 'REGION FRIENDLY'."
For their Starfinder Kickstarter they wrote this:
"To help minimize your shipping and customs costs, we will ship rewards to multiple international shipping hubs at our cost (US, EU, CN, and AU). These hubs ship all rewards to backers in their region. Depending on your region, this will help reduce or eliminate any additional import duties you will be required to pay.
United States of America: Adventure $18.5 / Campaign $26.5 / All-in Pledge $35
Please note that these are ESTIMATES ONLY and may change as we unlock more items, if you purchase additional rewards, or choose rewards spanning multiple shipping waves."
The last part basically negates anything written before.
In my experience, some will offer a lot of them cheaper (like Paizo themselves next wednesday) and some will offer them for even higher prices.
At least wait until wednesday 25th and check out Paizos webstore. ;-)

The First announcement about this product was, it being "Air & Fire Elementals".
Shortly later, at GenCon 50 or PaizoCon (i can´t remember), the images of the Huge Water Elemental and Huge Air Elementals were shown.
From then on, i too was under the impression, that the incentive content had been changed to include the Water elemental (and ordered two incentives).
I´m 100% sure it is not Paizos fault, as Wizkids decides about these things.
But it would be nice to hear the story behind this.
As i recall, the next Pathfinder Battles set (#14 ETA may 2018) is planned to include another scenery set and the one after that (#15 ETA october 2018) should include the two missing Huge Earth and Water elementals.
This is not set in stone though and Wizkids could still decide otherwise.
I´m cool with initial products (AP #1-6, Starfinder Core Rulebook, Alien Archive) being pricier for the reduced page count, because Paizo didn´t know how well it would sell.
From july next year on though, prices should either be reduced if the page count stays the same or the page count needs to be upped, as it is clear now that Starfinder is selling comparably to Pathfinder or even better.
I found a set list and prices from an online shop (the art sources were added by me, not all are 100% accurate):
# NAME ART SOURCE $
14 Ratfolk Alchemist (Monster Codex) 5,99
25 Minotaur Artillery (Inner Sea Monster Codex) 9,99
33 Derro Magister (Occult Bestiary) 8,99
41 Nightmare Dragon (Strange Aeons) 24,99
45 Fire Elemental Lord (Mythic Adventures) na
47 Altar (Dressing) 14,99
