Last week I promised that we’d have a blog showing off the premium figures coming out in next month’s Pathfinder Battles: City of Lost Omens set of prepainted plastic miniatures from WizKids. Unlike a normal set, which comes with a single premium figure (or scene set) that’s directly tied to the purchase of an entire case of minis, this set features not one, but two different premium products.
First we have a double offering of Huge dragons in the form of an Adult Black and Adult Red Dragon. These figures are massive for their bases and really push the limits of what a Huge miniature (what a glorious oxymoron) can be. Check these puppies out!
They’re not even the only dragons in the set! We couldn’t stop with just these two Huges, so we threw in a Large Green Dragon as well, in the rare category.
The second premium offering coming with this set is the Thieves’ Guild Premium Set, a standalone premium set that was originally supposed to be the sole premium this summer. We’ve heard fans’ feedback that some prefer scenery over monsters as well as the folks who said the opposite. The only way, it seemed, to make everyone happy was to do both. So we did.
The Thieves’ Guild is full of dungeon dressing befitting any secret guildhall of a city’s most notorious criminals. The set includes such pieces as a trapdoor with removable ladder; a weapon rack; two training dummies (one for picking pockets covered in tiny bells and the other a more traditional sparring dummy); a door and chest both covered in various types of locks to perfect one’s lockpicking skills; a satchel of thieves’ tools to lay on any table or floor where a rogue is hard at work; a loot sorting table and loot sack’ a card table with chairs (note the Harrow suits on the cards!); and a corpse-covered shrine to Father Skinsaw, the aspect of Norgorber focused on murder. My favorite part of the altar setpiece isn’t the eerie, translucent purple flames rising from the braziers but rather the fact that the wall behind the altar is removable, allowing for it to hide a secret passage or cache filled with even more gruesome and terrible things!
Because we couldn’t release a thieves’ guild without putting at least one thief out to populate it, we also included the Thief Guildmaster in the City of Lost Omens set as a rare Medium figure.
Even the most secure and secret thieves guild needs someone or something to guard it, though. And for that, we present the Skinstitch, a Large rare figure based on the creature from the Pathfinder Bestiary!
That’s it for this week’s previews, folks! I’ll be participating in PaizoCon Online beginning tomorrow morning, so if you’ve got additional questions feel free to stop by the convention’s Discord server and seek out my AMA thread. I’ll do my best to address mini-related queries there. Also, make sure to catch a few seminars or live-play streams on twitch.tv/officialpaizo or get a “seat” at one of the hundreds of virtual tables running Pathfinder and Starfinder games through Sunday.
Until next week—when I’ll show off the many potential player character figures in the set (one for every ancestry in the Advanced Player’s Guide!)—stay safe, enjoy PaizoCon Online, and roll high.
