Here we are at the last preview of the forthcoming Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures set of pre-painted plastic miniatures from our partners at WizKids. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen all the Huge creatures and the player character- and NPC-appropriate figures in the set, but we’ve still got some of the set’s most menacing foes to show off today!

First, let’s look at the Orc Brawler and Orc Warlord, rounding out Legendary Adventures’s five orc figures. The brawler, the third common orc in the set, will round out many GM’s warbands, and shows off the new orc knuckle dagger weapon that debuted in Pathfinder Second Edition earlier this month. The warlord, for his part, occupies a rare slot in the set, and features a blasting horn to rally the orc hordes against their foes—perhaps against the undead armies of the Whispering Tyrant.

If you didn’t get enough undead in previous Pathfinder Battles sets, like the undead-heavy Ruins of Lastwall set that came out this spring, we’ve got a few more to collect next month! Among the many monsters in the Pathfinder Bestiary that got a makeover between editions were the shadow, wraith, and wight, which all appear in this set as Uncommon medium figures. We really wanted to accentuate the spectral nature of the shadow and wraith, and you’ll notice the miniatures use translucent plastic to give them an eerie sense of not being fully there. The wight, with its bright red eyes and imposing pose, can also serve as a unique skeletal champion among a party of lower-level, mindless undead.

Now that I’ve got that nightmare fuel firmly planted in your subconscious, how about an actual, literal nightmare? This Large rare figure is more than just the black horse with flaming hooves of past editions—it’s a horse corpse with a burning core of infernal flame. Whether that flame burns hotter than the hatred the beast feels for its rider’s enemies is something you’ll have to find out on your own, I just don’t recommend you find out the hard way.

Finally, we have the lonesome Yeti, a Large uncommon figure based on the new art in the Pathfinder Bestiary (which was itself based on the actual appearance of yetis in the real world). Don’t let this guy’s conehead fool you, though—he’s not from France, but he’d sure wreak havoc if let loose there!

It's a Yeti! Mouth open and snarling!'

And with that, we’ve now seen all 44 figures (and variants) in the set. Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures releases next month, and pre-orders and subscriptions are available right now. Secure your booster, brick, or case now and prepare for a life of legendary adventure!

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

The good news is that it is still a Pathfinder Battles product, so possibly it will qualify for the case subscription singles discount.

You've been following WizKids long enough to know that they like to try a lot of different things, and changing away from a thing doesn't always mean they won't go back to it.

That is certainly true.

On the other hand, Patrick, the head of Wizkids RPG products line, seems to be taking a close look at the wishes and suggestions of the members of www.minisgallery.com lately and most of the users want creatures over scenery in the miniature sets and scenery in separate packages.

Are there any news about a minis blog yet?
It's been a week since the reveal and it seems that Wizkids is now letting Paizo handle the news reveals, as it is the first minis press release WITHOUT any render pictures and lacking the names of a few included creatures.

There is also some confusion about the premium set case incentive, as the contents are advertized as "Adult Black & Red Dragons".
While the adult red Dragon is HUGE, the adult black Dragon is only of large size in Pathfinder second Edition, most people and a few press releases assume two huge minis to be in the set.
Which is it?

Thank you for your time, Vic.

Wizkids pushed back some of their minis products from march to april, very likely because of the corona/covid 19 virus quarantine.

There will likely be many more products produced in China hit by this crisis.

As a result, i don't expect any news about the "Age of Lost Omens" minis for a few months.
