Gorgeous Black Dragon Brings Your Scenario to Roaring Life!

*****

This huge-sized black dragon miniature should be one of the crown jewels of your gaming collection. It recreates the steely writing power of the black dragon on the classic cover to Paizo's Beginner Box for your gaming table. Beautifully sculpted and painted, this miniature should find a home on your tabletop for years to come.


A beautifully made miniature

*****

I recently purchased this beauty after the case requirement was removed. And man, is it pretty! The detail on this beauty is worth the price alone. It's well-posed, well detailed (green tongue!) and sturdy. I compared the size to the Elder White and Elder Green from the DDM series. It's much smaller in size than the White, but only slightly smaller than the green. All in all, it's perfectly sized for a huge dragon and everything about it screams majesty. I would definitely love to see Paizo and WizKids produce a line of huge Paizo dragons and sell them separately from the Pathfinder Battles line; I would definitely like to see their takes on the iconic chromatic dragons.

Five out of five stars! I've seen this sold for $30-45 elsewhere. At $20 it's an excellent value and an excellent addition to my collection of dragons.


Think this is a PERFECT Black Dragon of (Huge) size.

*****

Without a doubt, this miniature is the "crown jewel" of the Pathfinder Battles: Heroes and Monsters set. I see that some folks think it's a tad "small" to be consider Huge ... and respectfully I disagree ... It's waaay bigger than a "large" dragon on a huge base. It is nearly equal of the huge green that WotC's line produced a few years ago.

I for one cannot wait to see more draconic goodness (badness) in the miniatures line.

****( )

I have to echo what others have said about this dragon. It is gorgeous, and probably the best mini of this set.

However, as has been pointed out, it looks to be on the smaller side for a 'Huge' dragon when compared with those from the D&D miniatures sets. It looks more like a Large dragon on a Huge base. Still, a lovely addition to the first set of Pathfinder Battles, and a benchmark which I hope future sets can match or surpass.


WOW!

*****

The best mini of the set. It is a fantastic Huge Black Dragon. I believe it to be perfectly sized when comparing it to the DDM large Red Dragon. Black dragons being the second smallest of the evil dragons.
If you can get your hands on this miniature you will not be disappointed.

For others who still might be interested in getting the case and the dragon, there are still sites that have those listed.

And that's still an option here, if you get that case as the start of a subscription.


My Black Dragon just arrived. Real nice work on this one. Great texture on the scales, the wings... Everything. It's ready to breathe some nasty acid.

Any word on whether you'll release any of the boosters as a single mini or keep it as purchase only with a case now the singles are available?

Love this mini. Best of the first set. I am so glad I got two of these minis. One to use and one to collect!


What's the deal with this, can it still be bought? Do I have to buy a case of Pathfinder Battles: Heroes & Monsters to qualify to buy it?

Actually, Liz, I believe that October 1st deadline was to GUARANTEE that you would get a Black Dragon mini. After that, it would only be available to folks who subscribed to the line while supplies lasted. And I think we still have some available (I am at home and can't see our inventories from here).

PMG or Gary have still not set up a direct Neural link between you and your computer network?

What is taking them so long?..;)

Just a quick question about this booster. I'm thinking of adding the H&M Case to my side cart. Are there still any Dragon boosters left? If I order the Case, does that automatically get the Dragon Booster added? Thanks!

Grand Lodge

If the Dragon is STILL for sale which it seems to be then yes they are available :)

I was not sure a case was still up for sale.. congrats if you get one. They are amazing! :)

Paizo's store front is more or less connected to their warehouse inventory computer, meaning that if you can click to buy above (not back order or similar) then there be Dragons.

You will not automatically get a dragon on ordering a case, however I believe that it prompts you that you are eligible when you add a case.

To be honest in retrospect it's not that difficult getting the black dragon. Available on a variety of sites. I wonder if we'll the same thing in the future. Mind you I'm all for this, always hated the idea of scarcity let the boys buy their toys :)

Liberty's Edge

Thanks. I've got an email out to customer service about various things including this. I tested adding a case to my cart but I didn't get an option to add the dragon. Maybe I didn't get far enough. Looking at the description, I wonder if I'm going to have to unsubscribe from the battles and then resubscribe and select H&M as my first choice.

That would probably work, and get you the 75% off. Alternatively, just add the black dragon using the add to cart button above...

I'd suggest you just tell customer service that you'd like to change your starting option from RotR to H&M.

Oh, man, you just saved me a frantic session of hunting the dealer rooms at Dragon*con this weekend. I'm seriously sitting on my back porch, relaxing before I start my drive down to the con, and now, instead of having to pay a ridiculous mark up and try to get it home in one piece, it's in my sidecart. Awesome.

How do I minimise my shipping cost to Australia to get this beauty.

It's pretty light... looks like it currently costs just $4.86 USD to ship it to Australia via Standard Postal Delivery.


Hey! Some Black dragons came back from the dead! ...must resist the urge to buy more...

Grand Lodge

very cool. I am glad some people got a chance for another :)

Sovereign Court

What are the chances of seeing this guy again? Maybe as a Reaper Bones?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

WizKids almost never reprints products, so the odds of seeing this mini in exactly this form again are very, very low. It's possible that this sculpt could appear in repainted form in a product like the White or Red Dragon Evolution sets, but nothing like that is currently announced.

Sovereign Court

That makes me a sad panda. I bought one, but an accident broke the tail parts off. A black dragon evolutions set would make me a happy panda, though. I may just have to buy the red and white ones in the meanwhile.
