Three figures to show off this week from the upcoming Legends of Golarion set of Pathfinder Battles prepainted plastic miniatures! This time I wanted to show off some of the set's more... eeevil antagonists, in particular those associated with my personal favorite nation of the Pathfinder world: CHELIAX!
Yes, the great Empire of Cheliax, ruled by an aristocracy of devil-binding loons and kept safe by the march of the highly regimented Hellknights. We've already released one Hellknight in the Skull & Shackles set, but for Legends of Golarion I wanted to juice up the faction with three new models.
Here we have the Scourge Hellknight, based on one of our very best Hellknight illustrations. This fine gentleman makes for a great fully armored flail-focused fighter, or as the backbone of your Cheliax-faction group of Pathfinder Society characters. The Order of the Scourge roots out crime all over Cheliax, and when they sentence you to lashes, they're not talking about seductive blinking. This Medium figure is slated at the uncommon rarity.
While most Hellknights tend to be warriors of various stripes, their many orders also feature large numbers of arcane spellcasters ready to apply their unique talents to rooting out chaos in the empire. Here we have a Hellknight Signifer pictured mid-casting, cleansing enemies of Cheliax with a nerve-wracking spell. This figure has an amazing sense of flow and dimensionality to it, and it really shines in hand. This Medium figure is at the uncommon rarity.
This Thrune Agent finishes off the Cheliax trio in Legends of Golarion. His heavy mace suggests that he might be a cleric, or at least a big fan of sickening splatters of blood from the heads of his enemies. With the symbol of Cheliax imprinted on his cloak, the Thrune Agent makes a good cleric of Asmodeus, the perfect companion to a group of Hellknights literally out looking for trouble. The Thrune Agent, a Medium figure, is slated at the uncommon rarity.
Last week I promised to reveal something we didn't show off at Gen Con, and I'm sorry to say that illnesses and preparation for PAX Prime (which kicked off today here in Seattle) got in the way of taking more photographs of Legends of Golarion. A thousand apologies for that. I'll make it up to you next week.
No, in fact, I think I'll make it up to you right now with a SUPER EARLY SNEAK PEEK at one of my favorite figures from the NEXT set, Wrath of the Righteous, which is currently scheduled for a December release. Keep in mind that this is a production sculpt shot, so some minor details may change, but I wanted you to see just how awesome this set is going to be.
So join me in a visit to the future as I reveal some shots of the demon lord Baphomet, designed by Wayne Reynolds and sculpted to perfection by our partners at WizKids!
Look for more information on the Wrath of the Righteous set next week, when I'll also finally get a chance to show off some brand new Legends of Golarion figures as well!
Until then, I remain...
