Yeah... wouldn't landscape be easier on a GM when moving starship minis during battles?
It's great to see another preview so soon.
If you make drows, I hope we'll see some of the Second Darkness npcs in the bunch. Such great images in that path!
I'd personally love seeing more uncommon races as other posters have already said, maybe a set featuring them? Or a Builder series box of them (one can hope!).
-Various shape changed skinwalkers or lycanthropes in hybrid forms would be great. One of my players created a female Coldborn(bear) skinwalker, it was a lot of converting work to create a suitable miniature since there's nothing of the like I could find anywhere.
-Plants, yes, please! I had to use the old metal Treant from Reaper that looks like a broccoli with legs for the yellow musk creeper in Emerald Spire. The humanity!
-More oozes too, they're just neat looking.
-Fey? Absolutely. There are some cool ones in the Bestiaries that need some miniature love.
-Devils, they pop up often enough in Adventure Paths and modules, if we could have all the classic ones done, it would be great.
-Deamons, Qulippoths, Aeons, Asuras, Divs, Demodands, Psychopomps, Inevitables, Proteans, Kytons and some of the missing Demons too.
-Good outsiders would also be handy for Hell's Vengeance, right?
-Bloatmages, what a fantastic idea. They could probably be used as obese ghouls in a pinch.
-With the new hellknights book, miniatures using the Orders' various armors style would be cool.
-Horror Adventures p.142... what? I could use an unmounted Dullahan.
-Would it be possible to include one monster from an Adventure Path (or any other books or modules with monsters) per set? A vote for the most popular could be fun, there are some real winners in those.
Anyway, just one last quick thanks for asking for our suggestions, Eric. It makes the sets even cooler in my opinion!

Out of all the Paths I've DMed, Second Darkness is the only one that did not have at least one miniature of its final bad guys/gals available.
While I don't have any date I can tell you that Adowyn (and her wolf), Hakon, Shardra and Zadim were available during ReaperCon (April 30-May 3rd) so they are done and should be available soon.

Andrew and Patrick are great too and have a good chance to get to end, yep.Lina might be worth watching too, she was very determined in the last episode (and was the first with two medals).
Agreed on the confessionals, although Shondo's comment are usually pretty darn funny, his comment after Sir Ansgar's fight made me chuckle.
I also got some of my gaming friends into the show after they saw a couple of minutes during a break in our regular thursday game. Discussing the latest episode has been a fun warming up before Pathfinder sessions.
I'm enjoying it as well, though I was skeptical when I first heard about it.
Bonnie and Shondo are my favorite cast members so far, but they've all been cool at one point or another.
Got any favorite?

Killing that little joy from your world is not cool. Your "power abuse" picks are always great fun and nice additions in each pack, so please, if you can, keep doing it.
Anyway, looking at the set, I'm wondering if some pieces should really be in a set named after an adventure path.
1. The 2 ice trolls, even if both are really great, well, we're basically getting the same monster twice (probably more, at uncommon rarity). Yes variety among the same sort of monster is great on the table but it's a bit puzzling when the set has 10 less original sculpts.
2. The animals, yes those are great additions BUT that's 5 more picks out of 45 (not counting the fox/Daji) that could have been used for NPCs or monsters that are more connected to the path.
3. The iconic, there's only one this time? That's kinda disappointing as I was looking forward to finding out who was the second one of the set, but it's understandable with the minus 10 per set thing.
Now having said that, would it be possible (or worth it) to create "add-on" sets, sharing the same name of the main set (in this case Reign of Winter), that could work a bit like the builder sets? I really liked the idea of the two huge RoW minis and that is sort of what I am talking about.
Another thing, would it be possible/diserable to lower the total of minis per case? Without lowering the chance of getting a complete set of course. Someone already mentioned feeling like they are paying the same price for less choice; I wouldn't mind getting less duplicates for a lower price.

Would you prefer to see some overlap in characters, lots of overlap in characters, or no overlap in characters? (I realize that there are dozens of shades of grey here; I'm personally curious about the first-thoughts answer as well as the discussion.)
I'd prefer no overlap until all classes are out. Trying out new characters has been a lot of fun so far and a big replay factor for me.
As for which Path after S&S? I'd like to see them done in chronological order, so Crimson Throne, though Second Darkness might be good too, drow are kinda popular, or so I hear. ;)
That's a strange reasoning, to me at least. Pretty much all of their Dark Heaven Legends characters (and some monsters) have names as do those in the Warlord line. Are players and buyers put off by named miniatures from their classic lines?
It's much easier to order a miniature with a specific name like "Samantha of the Blade" for example than say a generic one like "Female with sword #21". Plus the name is memorable.
Thanks nonetheless for the explanation, GeraintElberion!
Until Spider-Man joins the cast of Highschool Musical,
Make mine... Disney?
Yeah, I'm not feeling particularly excited about that bit of news either, but if my favorite titles gets changed to something I can't stomach anymore, I'll just stop buying them.

Yeah; folks who have played the witcher should understand why I'm so excited to see the alchemist base class appear in the upcoming "Advanced Player's Guide."
Ah! My first thought after reading the short preview of the alchemist class was that it sounded like the shenanigans of Geralt of Rivia.Color me excited!
