Nice, although given I got two succubi in my case, probably not the pack I'd prefer. Will there be another encounter pack coming from H&M?

Andoran

These figures look more certoony than those in the opening set. The cleric doesn't look very evil, the succubus doesn't look dangerous- just cheesy. The red gargoyle seems undifferentiated red, and the zombies look as if they are in some sort of bad karate poses. This set seems to be a definite decline as compared to the set featuring the iconic heroes, which was very well done. I hope that this does not signify that Paizo is not devoting as much attention to these miniatures, but rather is cranking them out in more of a quickly mass produced style. I think i'll pass on this set.

I won't address your comments that are matters of taste, but I do want to note that the gargoyle's red doesn't appear that uniform on the actual mini—it's an artifact of the photography.

The second Encounter Pack is still a little while away from being finalized, so we can't say just yet.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Wow, the red-headed succubus is way hotter than the brunette. :)

I presume the holy symbol is just Sarenrae's painted black? Would have been nice to have a holy symbol of one of the evil undeath gods ... but I guess not using a specific deity's holy symbol makes it more useful for a variety of evil clerics.


At first glance, the Gargoyle and Cleric are painted differently. Are the Succubus and Zombies too?

EDIT: Went and looked. Looks like they're all alternate paints. Awesome!

1) Yes. One year from the date when you received the code. This should be displayed next to the code on your My Subscriptions page.

2) No.

I think I will like having an evil version of the same miniature.

I will particularly enjoy having more zombies.

Extremely awesome that it ties into the free RPG.

Thanks, Ross. I didnt realise the My Subscription page was where I could access those.

I posted a query in the website feedback forum, not sure how easy or hard this would be.


I like the paint job on the cleric and succubus better than the one on the H&M versions.

I like the idea of paint variations for existing creatures. Adds a nice variety when fighting several enemies. The RPG day module looks fun also.

I have mixed thoughts on this pack, but I guess it all depends on what the intent of the Encounter Packs are.

If the intent is to always pair them up with a specific module or adventure path, then I have no critisism here. If the intent is to give a player a group of thematically linked minis, then I think this set has failed.

I think people would prefer themed packs like an undead pack over a bunch of loosely related figures that you say are related.

I would also like to see at least 1 unique mini in the Encounter Pack that I can only get in the pack. But perhaps, that defeats Paizo's concept behind the Encounter packs?

Sadly, as a prior poster has posted, I really don't like any of the minis in the pack. The contorted zombies are of no real interest to me. The gargoyle mini's appearance is greatly lacking, especially when compared to the DDM gargoyle minis. Sure maybe painting him red he is supposed to be able to double as a demon, but he is still lacking in flavor for me. The succubus is a decent scuplt and paint job. The cleric... sigh... I really didn't care much for it in the H&M line. It really doesn't have that great "I'm a heroic adventurer" look to it for me. Now although I do really prefer this paint scheme over the H&M paint, I have to agree with the prior poster in that it doesn't scream to me "evil cleric".

However the dire-mini collector in me is still going to have to buy one if these... I'm just not looking as forward to it as I should.

We're going to try different things, and see how it goes. Odds are good that the next pack probably won't tie to a specific product, and probably will be a more themed grouping.

Well, the Encounter Packs are actually WizKids' concept... but yes, the concept is to keep the price point down by using all existing molds with new paint jobs.

Correct—just the 20% discount code that Pathfinder Battles case subscribers get.

Was looking forward to some new minis in these packs, so a little disappointment there, but I'm new to minis and I'm a slave to the obsession. I'm buying them. Was surprised they weren't part of the subscription too. Need to read the instructions.

Osirion

Looks sweet but I hope there will not continue to be lots of double ups... Reprints or not.

Andoran

Got to say, I think this is brilliant. For years peeps have asked wotc to release minis for their modules. Being able to buy all the minis for a particular adventure in one swoop, even if it is pricey, is a nice option. Combine this with flip maps of the location, and you have a nice adventure ready to go. Might even be able to bundle them together for a discount....

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Just to make sure everyone is on the same page, Encounter Packs will pretty much ALWAYS be repaints of existing sculpts. If we could do set packs of new miniatures with no randomness element at all, we would.

Unfortunately, the costs of tooling and sculpting make that impossible, so these sets will not regularly (or even "pretty much ever") include totally new sculpts.

This isn't bad idea. Wizkids does this for the most part with their Fast Forces packs for heroclix and it works well. It will even allow some of the cooler minis to get into peoples hands that aren't lucky enough to pull them out of packs or willingly to pay the price on the secondary market. Right now that succubus is 60% or more of the price of that pack on the secondary market.


That Scarlett Gargoyle looks great. I hope we get more sets like this.

I would love to see a goblin pack with at least four new sculpts.

I was thinking more of pathfinder modules and pfs scenarios.

That's what I was thinking of as well. They don't even need to package anything differently. Just create a bundle in the Paizo online store, that gets you all the items at a discount.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Ooooh, exciting. I only managed to pull one succubus and I think two gargoyles in my case, so will probably be picking this up. Like others not a huge fan of the zombie sculpts, but zombies are the sort of thing you want in quantity (around 4-6), so all around not too bad...

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Encounter packs - great idea. Repaints of existing miniatures - not so good an idea. I know this is probably a cost effective strategy regarding sculpting, but really? I'm seeing D&D miniature all over again...sigh!

Having said that, you can never have too many Zombies, and for those that don't buy a brick, I guess the Succubus as a stand alone is a good idea.

One could also view it as a product aimed at those who were so averse to randomised packs. The people who were asking for 'visible minis only, please' now have their products (together with the limited number of sculpts and higher prices that non-random entails) and those willing to buy random minis have our product.

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

That's definitely how we look at it. And for miniatures fiends like me, it's just more cool minis to add to the collection.

ANY chance for a pre-paint?

ie One mini that is a repaint of one from the next set? That already has an approved sculpt, has made the set list, yet won't be out for a few months...

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

I dunno. Maybe. We've discussed it, but there are a lot of logistical reasons why it may not be practical.


The Cleric and Succubus are both really pale with red hair.

GINGERS!!! Champions of Evil indeed.

I thought so. You could tell that some of the decisions for the H&M set were made by one of us.

Repaints adds variety. As another miniature fiend, I will look forward to adding them to my collection.

Repaints have always been useful in gaming, to denote a creature of interest out of a group of like creatures. Whether it be a leader with some extra abilities, an owner of a special item, or simply the one creature out of the encounter that can further the plot if not out right killed, it's nice to easily be able touse a Repaint to help track its location. And in the past, repaints have been more difficult to come by. I'm sold on this concept. AndI'll be getting this pack.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

I love this! Repaints are a great way to get extra milage out of a mini sculpt. And if the repaint is done well and looks different enough from the orginal it feels like having an all new mini. I look forward to more encounter packs to come.

I ordered a pack but I'm going to save my one shot 20% for something more generic. I want more zombies but I don't really need 4 or 5 succubi, so if an undead pack or goblin pack comes out with a leader type and 5 (or more) mooks I'll buy multiples of that. A goblin cleric and fighter with a horde of minions would be perfect. Four or five of those could form a quick and ready warband, with a metal goblin mini forming the leader.

I thought the discount was a 1 for 1 – 1 case gives a 20% discount on 1 enc pack – not multiples? I am more than happy of course to be pleasantly surprised if this is not the case!

Repaints are a great idea, just like the fast forces for heroclix, only better. Interesting first choice by wizkids though – I like the succubus – it’s a great mini anyway, and the red gargoyle is good. Sadly I wasn’t a huge fan of the Zombie, too skinny, but the repaint is better than the original IMHO. I’m not sure how many really lend themselves to repaints from the set, certainly for variety there are some:
Vampire and/or (reds and gold or purples and gold – just for variety)
Giant Caveweaver or giant spider (pitch black rather than grey, sickly green, deep crimson with black markings, yellow with iridescent green markings, green with yellow markings)
Chimera (different coloured dragon heads would be cool, although a polar bear version like in the jade regent would be cooler)
Snake (more subdued green, bright lurid green)
Wolf (fiery red – hellhound?)
But then I’ll buy almost any mini I can make use of in my games.

Andoran

Very awesome. I would have bought them anyway, but now that i know they go with the Free RPG Day scenario, it's even better.


I was hoping for different figs than the random sets but I can easily understand the reasons to stick with Re-paints. Hopefully we'll see some greater detail/levels in the painting.

Heartily seconded, especially for more spiders and wolves.

Too many succubi? Unpossible. :)

Srlsy, I wish I'd had four of these to substitute for the alu-demons in Sins of the Saviors. (Of course, then I'd have needed something different for the actual succubus in that same encounter...)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hrm, not quite the selection I was hoping for, but the collector in me will definitely preorder at least one (especially with my subscriber discount).

The paint jobs are good from what I can see, but was hoping more for some more common, everyday enemy types (goblins, orcs, wolves), but I understand as this encounter is theme based with an upcoming module release.

I also wish it didn’t have such a late release, I was thinking (hoping) the first encounter pack would have been a couple of months at the most after H&M. With an April release it looks like we probably won’t get another encounter pack before RotRL.

Is the plan to have only one encounter pack release between sets? I was hoping for at least a couple.
