We’re more than halfway through our blog series previewing the forthcoming [Pathfinder Battles: City of Lost Omens set of pre-painted plastic miniatures from our partners at WizKids, and I think players are going to love this particular batch of minis especially (though GMs should find plenty here to use from their side of the screen as well). This week we look at the humanoid figures in the set, featuring a variety of ancestries perfect for any urban campaign!
Since we revealed last week at PaizoCon Online what new ancestries and versatile heritages would be debuting in Pathfinder Second Edition in July’s Pathfinder Advanced Player’s Guide, I have no qualms in spoiling anything by revealing these next few figures, which represent potential player character options included in that book. Here we have the Hellspawn Adept to represent characters with the tiefling versatile heritage. As a spellcaster, this figure seemed a good fit for variant sculpts, so we have the common Medium version wielding a staff and the uncommon Medium version with an additional spell effect in her outstretched hand.
Tieflings are far from the only versatile heritage in the book, though, so we couldn’t stop there. Here are the Angelkin Redeemer, Changling Exile, Dhampir Wizard, and Duskwalker Ghost Hunter—all Medium uncommon figures except the angelkin, who is common—representing humanoids with angelic, hag, vampire, and monitor bloodlines.
The Advanced Player’s Guide also features the catfolk, ratfolk, and tengu ancestries, so naturally we included a member of each in this minis set as well! Here are the Catfolk Pouncer, Tengu Rogue (both Medium uncommon figures), and Ratfolk Grenadier (a Small common figure), ready to populate Absalom or your fantasy metropolis of choice.
The ancestries in the Advanced Player’s Guide aren’t the first to be added to Pathfinder Second Edition since the Core Rulebook came out last summer. That honor goes to the three new ancestries featured in last fall’s Lost Omens Character Guide: hobgoblin, leshy, and lizardfolk (called Iruxi on Golarion). We included a fair number of hobgoblins in last year’s Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures set, but didn’t have reference art for the other two when that set was finalized. Naturally, we’re including them here; behold the Leaf Leshy (Small common), Iruxi Defender (Medium common), and Iruxi Stargazer (Medium uncommon).City of Lost Omens, I also want to take this opportunity to share two more promo repaints that fit this blog’s theme. I don’t know when or how we’ll be distributing these (we still have the figures that were supposed to be swag at PaizoCon and Gen Con from the last set to find new homes for) but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them now and relish in the anticipation of their eventual release. First among them is an autumn-themed leaf leshy, appropriate for when the seasons change and your little plant person prepares for the coming winter. Next is a dwarf sharpshooter, a repaint of the duergar sharpshooter from two weeks ago.
That’s it for this week! Next week we’ll wrap the series up with a look at the remaining creatures, all of which call the Isle of Kortos home and are the perfect fit for Game Masters running campaigns set in the lands beyond Absalom’s impenetrable walls. Until then, Pathfinders, stay safe and may your rolls all be critical successes.
