Last week we started looking at the forthcoming Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures set of pre-painted plastic miniatures from our partners at WizKids. This week we’ll explore the Goblin Village premium set that releases alongside the Huge booster-based set.
Longtime goblin fans will notice a lot of nods to past goblin adventures in this premium set. When we first started designing this set, I knew we needed to include iconic goblin elements from Pathfinder’s long history, and we plumbed not just our past adventures like Burnt Offerings and We Be Goblins!, but also the “Goblins!” comics from Dynamite Entertainment.
Included in the set are the following components:
• Large Tent x1
• Small Tent x2
• Barricade x3
• Baby Goblin Gate x1
• Palisade Walls x3
• Pigpen Gate x1
• Goblin Babies x1
• Palisade Gate x1
• Pigpen Fence x4
• Magic Pig x1
• Bonfire x2
• Junk Statue x1
• Junk Pile x2
• Pickle Barrel x2
• Throne x1
• Chief Goblin x1
With one Goblin Village premium set, a GM will get enough components to set up a full 360° palisade wall, large enough to hold most of the other components based on the needs of their campaign. That might be a series of tents and the tribe’s magic pig in its pen, or a clutch of goblin babies, ready to present adventurers with a moral quandary about what to do with these innocent balls of destruction. It might be a bonfire to honor the junk effigy worshiped by the superstitious tribe, or a war council overseen by the presiding chief. The possibilities are endless!
The Chief Goblin is presented in a sitting position and is removable from the throne, and is the same figure as the Goblin Chieftain (Small rare) in the main set.
In addition to the goblin babies (unbased) and both versions of the goblin chief, Legendary Adventures also includes a number of goblinoid figures appropriate for both player characters and adversaries. The only goblin that has yet to be revealed is the goblin ankle-slasher (Small uncommon), as both the preview and standard versions of the goblin dog-slicer and goblin guard appeared in previous blogs, and we looked at the goblin horse-chopper “sculpt-share” last week.
Goblins aren’t the only goblinoids in Legendary Adventures, though. Both hobgoblins and bugbears got conceptual makeovers by Wayne Reynolds during our early days of developing Pathfinder Second Edition, and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to include some figures based on Wayne’s designs in this set. In this set, you will find the bugbear mauler (Medium common), hobgoblin sharpshooter (Medium common), hobgoblin commander (Medium rare), and bugbear butcher (Medium rare) as well as those goblinoids already released in the Legendary Adventures Preview Pack.
And while they’re not particularly thematically linked to the goblinoids of this blog, but because I’d be remiss not to show off a Large or Huge figure from the set at every opportunity, here are the pteranodon (Large uncommon) and boar demon (Huge rare).
Next week we’ll look at the many player character ancestries represented in this set and some of the giant foes the Huge booster format allows GMs to add to their games.
