This week, WizKids—our longtime partner for prepainted plastic Pathfinder miniatures—announced the first set to be released after the launch of Pathfinder Second Edition in August of this year. Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures features 44 figures ranging in size from Small to Huge based on all new concept art for the next evolution of Pathfinder, much of it by iconic artist Wayne Reynolds himself!
Yes, you read that right. For the first time since 2012's Pathfinder Battles: Rise of the Runelords set, non-premium Huge figures will be included among the randomized figures in the set. Unlike the 2012 set, however, you won't need to buy a Huge booster, but rather will get either a Huge or Large figure in every four-figure booster.
While it's still early to begin previewing this set (we're still looking at April's Pathfinder Battles: Ruins of Lastwall, after all), it would hardly be an announcement befitting such huge news not to show off at least a few of the new figures in the set. Check out the Dragon Turtle (Huge uncommon), Chimera (Large uncommon), Fire Giant (Large uncommon), and Dwarf Sorcerer (Medium rare) for a sample of what's coming in September!
The premium set releasing alongside these and 40 other figures is Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures Goblin Village, which features tents, wooden palisades, and a number of other accoutrements and decorations befitting the game's most recognizable little trouble-makers. While I don't want to give away too many of the village's features in favor of a later reveal full of all the Easter eggs and continuity callbacks they represent, here are a few samples, including the palisade gate, a large tent, a pickle barrel, and a junk pile.
But you don't have to wait until September to get your mitts on minis from Legendary Adventures! A non-randomized set of eight alternative paint figures will be available in the Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures Preview Pack a month earlier to coincide with the official launch of Pathfinder Second Edition. These figures are the Goblin Dog-Slicer, Orc Charger, Bugbear Skulker, Orc Battler, Goblin Guard, Hobgoblin Soldier, Armored Elf Soldier, and Halfling Slinger. Notice the redesigned orcs and hobgoblins, and killer goblin and elf armor, all courtesy of Wayne's second edition concept sketches!
We'll have a lot more about all three of these products in a few months, so stay tuned. WizKids has some truly legendary adventures in store for you this summer!
