Now that the regular "Pathfinder Battles" blogs are back again, i´m gonna post news about the D&D minis here to not cluster up the Pathfinder thread. ;-)
I´ll begin with the D&D Icons of the Realms: Classic Creatures Box Set out in november from Wizkids.
It contains nine different prepainted miniatures:
The price is $79.99 and shops will be able to order one free 3 inch Demogorgon (medium) miniature per box.
There are less than 100 left of the Pathfinder Player Companion: Dungeoneer's Handbook, which has really gorgeous art and some useful stuff for dungeon-exploring.
If you are curious about STARFINDER, get your tentacles on Pathfinder Player Companion: People of the Stars, it has rules for playing ANDROIDS, KASATHA, LASHUNTA & TRIAXIANS. There are less than 250 left.
If you like ULTIMATE CAMPAIGN, get Pathfinder Player Companion: Quests & Campaigns for a director´s cut from that hardcover book. There are also less than 250 left in stock.
From the books mentioned above, i can personally recommend the Dragon Slayer´s Handbook, Giant Hunter´s Handbook and Haunted Heroes Handbook.
My TOP 10 Player COMPANIONS are (in no particular order):
-BLOOD OF FIENDS
-VARISIA, BIRTHPLACE OF LEGENDS
-PEOPLE OF THE NORTH
-BLOOD OF THE MOON
-PEOPLE OF THE RIVER
-PEOPLE OF THE STARS
-RANGED TACTICS TOOLBOX
-MELEE TACTICS TOOLBOX
-DIRTY TACTICS TOOLBOX
-BLOOD OF THE BEAST
Sounds interesting, Owen.
So multi-classing is a thing in Starfinder, that´s cool.
Do you have to take ALL of an archetype´s alternate class features (like in Pathfinder) or can you choose for instance to take the first possible replacement power but not the second?
How does this work with multi-classing?
If have one level of soldier and gain a level, you decide to take the phrenic adept archetipe and gain "Phrenic Defense" instead of what you would have gotten as a 2nd level soldier.
Then later, you decide to make your 3rd level a mystic level.
And on top of that comes one single theme i guess?
I guess the container with the actual minis ist still held in customs, too bad. ;-(
The third link doesn´t work.
I love the Skeleton Cavalry and would love to get my hands on a few more than one, but it´s probably the right rarity.
The Reclamation Cavalry looks good in the video, but it´s painted plainly enough to be an uncommon, which would have made much more sense (switched with the "Monstrous Skeleton"/Owlbear Skeleton).
I havn´t yet gotten a good enough look at the "Reclamation Sky Cavalry" mini, so i can´t say anything on details, but the rarity is probably in order. The fact that this Griffon looks so different (better actually) from the wild one in the "Dungeons Deep" set (#32) is a little unfortunate...
Still, these will be three useful minis, but to build an army they would have to be uncommons... ;-)
25 days till release and still 3 more previews till then, hopefully with pictures of actual minis. :-)
Have a nice weekend, Michael!
Is that the right price?
The scenery packs were between $30 and $40 before, the ONLY case incentive (no matter if from D&D or Pathfinder Battles) that was $50 was the Gargantuan Red Dragon.
For that price, i would expect a real throne room (with floor and one wall) OR lots and lots of pieces (certainly more than in the Adventurers Camp...
The "Golem Sale & Clearance" link only leads to the "scratch and dent sale" for Paizo Products, where a lot of products are only available as pdfs, which makes no sense for a scratch and dent sale.
This wasn´t the case a few days before (i checked last on wednesday).
Thank you and have a nice weekend! :-)
I can´t say how disappointed i am.
Although these Kickstarter minis look pretty cool and some advertisement for the Pathfinder add-on is certainly in order, i am not going to spend money on a board game kickstarter 20 hours before it finishes.
I wouldn´t have minded this, if we would have gotten regular blogs, but 5 weeks of no news, then getting something that has nothing to do with Pathfinder Battles - after all i´m here for roleplaying and not tabletop (as nice as that can be too) - and then having to stomach another two weeks of no news is a little too much for me.
I wish you a nice holiday none the less, but please consider not putting the minis previews on the backburner for new (and also exciting) things like Pathfinder comics or crossover projects in the future.
PS: If i sound a little cranky, i´m sorry, but i am sick and been staying awake for hours to see something new of PFB. :-(
All the class features sound really great, Erik!
I'm looking forward to buying the first issue on halloween and will put up a review as soon as i have read it.
I hope you can get around to write an introductory adventure set in Galt one day.
Hope to read your minis blog on friday (saturday morning here in germany).
I'll get my monthly comic dose here in germany on october 31st, but Pathfinder Worldscape #1 is part of it (along with The Walking Dead #159 and Bloodshot Reborn).
I'm looking forward to it almost as much as for fridays last Deadly Foes preview. ;-)
Erik, what will the mini-battlemap depict?

I just took a quick look at this, and noticed that many of the items shown in the "On Sale" listings (Adventure Paths, Pathfinder Chronicles, Campaign Settings, Map Packs, Modules, ...) are links to the PDFs, not to physical product. That's not going to be much help in clearing shelf space in the warehouse ...
The screenshot above seems to support the notion that the giant minis are of huge size.
Also an australian website offers the series as early as august 3rd 2016 - which is in 4 weeks - 4 weeks before the american release date.
See the link below.
There is no release date yet and i hope it is not too close too "PFB DEADLY FOES".
What is very interesting, is that the case incentive is called "adventurer's camp", which reminds me of "The Rusty Dragon Inn Bar incentive" and also brings tents and a campfire dressing to mind...
Every one's a winner, baby!
The rarity is spot-on.
Only the soles of the Pit F... feet look strange, but i can live with that.
For me this is the best set, creature-wise.
Only the huges are very niche - again, but i'll still buy them with a case.
So i guess we will get the set for x-mas, which is fine too.
Thank you for the "double preview", Erik!
The best series yet.
This is even better than "Origins" because the Iconics work all together in an already half-developed locale (Hollow Mountain from "Dungeons of Golarion) against enemies statted out in the Bestiary 2, written by people who developed the Golarion setting.
