Ahoy, Starfinders! Today we’ll take our first look at the premier set of Starfinder Battles prepainted plastic miniatures from our friends at WizKids! This 32-figure set is currently slated for an early March release, so we’re going to have to really gun the thrusters in order to make it in before release. I hope to be able to show off photos of actual minis, just as you’ll receive them when opening a booster, but may have to resort to a few renders, as I don’t currently have all the figured photographed. Needless to say, I’ve heard the feedback about these preview blogs and am working to provide better quality content for our most loyal customers.
In Starfinder AP #1, the first iconic encounter takes place at a loading dock on Absalom Station, so it’s only fitting that our first premium set of Starfinder Battles miniatures is also a docking bay. This piece features a two-person cargo transport vehicle with detachable trailer, a bench for waiting passengers or resting crew, and a variety of cargo containers in several size, shape, and color configurations. These are perfect for providing cover for any battles that might break out while your party is loading or unloading their starship, and work well as accents with any number of Starfinder Flip Mats and Flip-Tiles.
No docking bay would be complete without aliens and starfarers to inhabit it. In two of the above scenes you can see the Pahtra Stalker (Medium Uncommon) and Cybernetic Golem (Large Uncommon), either of which you could find in a docking bay. Heck, since there are player character rules for the pahtra, you could even be one of them meeting the other one! The possibilities are endless.
Some aliens are less likely to be found in a docking bay (although, in the Pact Worlds or Veskarium, who knows?!) like the Barathu, Dragonkin, and Ksarik (all Large Uncommon figures).
That’s it for this week, but we’ll have more previews of Starfinder Battles: Planets of Peril soon!
