When will cases for subscribrers ship?
It's been a week since I responded to customer service email regarding increased shipping costs, asking if I wanted to have it ship. I have not received a response from customer service in that week or a note about the shipment being sent out.
I saw it arriving in local game stores today.
Wondering if the shipping date got moved back for subscribers? Thanks for your help.
I live in the Midwest and the portcullis in my case also has some major warping issues.
I do like the knight statue and the fountain, but the other dungeon dressing do not work for me.
I do like the variety that was added with this set, particularly the plants. There are definitely some cool looking commons and uncommons (both urdefhan, gate hellknight, ghul, lizardfolk, deep lurker, pit born fighter, viper vine, witch fire, to name a few).
Overall this is a nice set.
I received a case from Paizo yesterday, too. Very fast shipping. Did not receive the case incentive yet.
I had one fig that was broken between the cape and the body - I will try to glue it. One of the spiders was off it's peg, which was easy to fix.
I haven't had time to closely look at the rest, but they seemed good as I took them out of the boxes and stored them on the shelf until this weekend.
I like the Ankhrav Drone - glad it's not a rare.. I'm not a big sphinx fan to begin with, so any sphinx is a tough sell for me - so I'm glad it's a rare.
For other miniatures enthusiasts, if you liked the Kraken produced in a kickstarter by Dungeon Crawler Miniatures, they are kickstarting a 8x8 Behemoth right now that looks pretty amazing.

Thanks for the update. If not for having to work when these went on sale, I'd have snagged a table. Not sure I want extras of the other items right now. A great set. The case I ordered is really well stocked with enough of each fig - nice selections on the rarities.
Got my case today. Wow! Wow!!! Wow!!!!! Love it. The minis turned out great.
The paint and sculpts are all great.
Beaky is my favorite owl bear mini of all time.
The kobold trap maker is my favorite kobold mini of all time.
The frost giant ice mage is simply cool.
The orc rider on the dire wolf fits so nicely with dire wolves already on the market - a great figure in its own right.
The bar scene with so many characters that fit with the theme are perfect for many bar scenes in game.
The two goblins make me smile. Good unique minis with stories yearning to be told tying them into story lines.
I could go on, but you get the picture.
I have only 2 very minor things I will fix -
Getting a case of this was awesome. There are only a few minis that I won't use (probably only ever use 1 flesh golem - got 3, 1 gorgon - got 3, 2 frost giant ice mages - got 4, 1 city watch commander - got 3, 1 or 2 dwarf wizards - got 4). The rarities for this case were perfect for me. I only wanted 1 of each rare. I understand the reasoning for the rarity of the dungeon dressing, but will add my voice to others' voices that more of these would be great - love the table, cart, and wagon especially.
Thank you Erik, Paizo, and WizKids!
I would like to add on some items to my order, if possible, before it ships. (I emailed this note to customer service, too - sorry for the double communication - I just noticed Steve Geddes advised me to post here)
Please let me know if this is correct -
I received a very kind Seasons Greetings card from Paizo with a 10% off a single order placed before Jan 31. Could I use that on this Iconics and the extra case promo add-on order, too?
Depending on the discounts, I'm hoping to add
Thanks for your advice and your help.
Two questions -
1) I'm a PFB case subscriber. Does that allow for a subscriber discount on these Iconic Heroes sets?
2) I just was notified I was charged for Rusty Dragon Inn and that order is pending. Is it too late to add on Iconic Heroes Set 4 to that order (only want to do this if there is a subscriber discount, otherwise I want to get it at my FLGS).
Thanks for any answers you can provide.

Miniature Market is selling singles for this set already, listed as "in stock" not pre-order. Hopefully our subscription cases ship soon, like a second Christmas. I appreciate how M.M. always posts pictures of the worst paint jobs that they pull for D&D and Pathfinder prepainted singles, to avoid unhappy customers, but it always makes me nervous as hell that my minis are gonna look that bad. Hoping for some high quality standards on this set. Also, is this the set that we are going to get a better King and Feiya paint job mini?
Thanks for mentioning that Miniature Market had them up on the site. It's fun to look through them. Looking forward to seeing them in had even more now.
I love this group of minis. This is a great set. When I started my subscription with the last set released I thought I'd probably turn the subscription off and not order the set after it (this one). Now that I've had a chance to see all the previews and see all of the useful and fun minis coming up, there's no way I'm missing out this set.
I enjoy PFB goblins and like the great diversity. It's fun to have a low level race have so much to choose from, so many that can serve different roles, and especially such great minis that will help narrate the story of adventures and campaigns, which is the heart of using minis to me.
The dragon scale armor on the elf looks pretty sweet.
The NPC Zilvazaraat looks like quite a character, too. Fun!
These look fun! I like your idea of having "focus creatures" in each set. Very cool.
I prefer lower level focus creatures as low level encounters tend to be played the most (even though my campaign right now is entering epic tier in 4e D&D).
I already like the kobolds, goblins, orcs, undead, and now bugbears that exist.
The bard and the riding dog will be nice additions. All 3 of these are new in the best sense of the word - a new bard - as others have said, new bards are great additions. A riding dog will be fun for NPCs, and possibly PCs.
The ghoul is interesting. Like others I've read on other boards, I'm not used to ghouls with the intelligence to do much more than melee devouring, but these new ghouls may be a fun and surprise twist for those players I play with who enjoy undead encounters the most.
This may be stating the obvious, but along with the cool minis that are produced, this regular preview post is something I enjoy and look forward to - I pick up ideas of how to incorporate the minis into story lines, I get a better idea of what some of the Pathfinder specific characters & monsters are, and I get a to look at the upcoming minis.
This marketing approach works wonders on me.
I thank you for continually providing this fun look ahead and for making it easier to carry a lighter wallet.
3 for 3 this week for me! And of the now 12 known, I'm sure I want 11 (and possibly all 12).
The frost giant ice mage is a great concept and it looks to be a great design, too.
The orc dire wolf rider looks pretty sweet, too.
The Guard is an always welcome addition - very useful and practical.
Thanks for another great preview!
Thanks for fulfilling my order so fast for the case of Dungeons Deep miniatures and the case incentive.
In the case, in one of the boosters, there was one missing medium sized figure - only 3 instead of 4 miniatures were in the one box.
Do I contact Wizkids about this, or is this something that you help with?
Everything else in the order was correct. The shipping was fast and I appreciate all of your help.

The set looks great.
Pickled punk and ochre jelly are great additions. The Daughter of Urgathoa looks cool - but seems like one that will look better in hand.
It's veeeeeeeeery tempting to sign up for a subscription.
I'm still holding out, but my resistance is futile if the replacement minis are included and look as good as the rest of this set.
