This week brings the final six reveals for the upcoming Pathfinder Battles Undead Horde Builder Series, which is set for a September debut. This set of 12 figures features new sculpts and repainted favorites to help you swell the legions of undead in your Pathfinder campaigns. Figures come one per pack, with 24 $2.99 packs in a single "gravity feed" display. Our first Builder Series release, We Be Goblins! came out last week, and reviews have been very positive. We think you'll like the Undead Horde just as much!
But enough preamble! Let's get right to the miniatures!
Up first this week we have the Ghoul, everyone's favorite long-tongued bad guy this side of Gene Simmons. The figure debuted in the Rise of the Runelords set, and has since become one of the most popular singles from that collection. This time he's got a chalkier, grayer cast to his skin. We though he deserved a repeat performance. The Ghoul is a common figure.
We didn't want the Ghoul to be too lonely in the Undead Horde, so we decided to also include this charming Lady Ghoul. While this figure may look like a new sculpt, in fact it's a repaint of a Skull & Shackles figure we haven't previewed yet, so consider this an ominous hint of things to come on the deadly seas ahead of us. The Lady Ghoul is a common figure.
Here we have a genuine new sculpt, the Festrog, an undead creature that crawls on all fours that we first introduced way back in the old GameMastery Modules line (Hungry are the Dead, to be specific). The CR 1 creature's statistics got a Pathfinder upgrade in Bestiary 3. Since Festrogs often appear in gangs or packs, we slated him at the common rarity.
This familiar face originally appeared as the Spectre from our first set, Heroes & Monsters. The sculpt resurfaced as the Festering Spirit for last year's convention season promotional figure, and now he makes his third (and likely final) appearance as a Ghost. The Ghost is a rare figure.
Last up this week we've got the Wraith, a new paint scheme on a favorite figure from Rise of the Runelords. Now with deep purples but with the same malevolence as ever, the Wraith looks forward to wrapping your player characters in an energy-draining embrace. Give him a hug! The Wraith is a rare figure.
That's it for this set. Next week we'll return to the Skull & Shackles preview, and I've got some exciting developments to reveal shortly thereafter. Believe it or not, we're currently finalizing the set list for THREE sets from now, and that's not including additional Builder Series and Encounter Pack releases that will be making their way to you throughout the rest of 2013 and into 2014!
