Cornerstone Gaming Aid

5/5

Short Version: If you use maps in your game, this gives a great foundation of enemies for a fraction of the price of minis.

The pawn boxes, particularly this one containing so many oft-used monsters, each replace hundreds (let's be honest, thousands) of dollars in minis in an easier-to-store solution.

There are a few problems that aren't enough to bump the score down, but are worth mentioning. I often find I don't have enough copies of common monsters, although the Monster Codex box helps a great deal there. The lack of gargantuan and colossal pawns is understandable (they'd be a giant pain to fit on sheets), but still felt. And, after years of weekly use, these pawns don't return snugly to the sheets anymore, necessitating different storage.


Pretty Much Perfect

5/5

I'm finding it hard to figure out what to say when reviewing the Pathfinder pawn boxes. The product details are listed on the back of the packaging, so for the Bestiary Box you'll know you're getting 256 different creature pawns, with some of them coming in multiples for a final count of over 300. The pawns are thick, sturdy cardboard and have held up well through months and years of play. They slot neatly into little round plastic bases, and the box comes with 21 small/medium bases, 10 large bases, and 5 huge ones. Although there might be an omission here or there (I haven't cross-checked), almost every creature that appears in the Bestiary will have a corresponding pawn in this set. The only consistent exceptions are any creatures larger than Huge, as Paizo has refused to come out with any pawns that big. The artwork is full-colour and (usually) matches the creature pictures in the book, the pawns are titled and numbered to match the list on the back of the box for easy sorting, and there are little set indicators so you don't get the pawns from this box mixed up with pawns from other boxes. If I had any criticisms of the Bestiary Box specifically, it's that it's not always intuitive why they chose some creatures to have multiple pawns and others to only have one: for example, there are two "Bralani Azatas" (I'm not exactly sure what that is), but only one Shadow and only one Wraith, etc. Still, quibbles aside, this is an excellent set, and having these pawns sure beats checkers, coins, random minis ("Gandalf is the hyena"), and the various other things GMs sometimes have to put on the table. From one point of view, I can see why it sounds ridiculous to spend $ 44.99 USD on little pieces of cardboard. But . . . somehow it's worth it!


Best Looking Backorder EVER

5/5

I will just drool over these, I'd offer a much more honest rating, but I can't buy them, they are permabackordered. Sooo... they're awesome. Looking. I'll just sit here in my sadness without them. Crying softly. Curled in a ball on the shower floor, cold water and tears running down my face and over my nakedness. I will attempt to carry on. I will survive this. Paizo, you're my only hope. Unless I pay 87.00 on amazon.


A Solid Compromise Between Paper Minis and Solid Minis

5/5

I decided to pick this up after I ran the introductory adventure from The Beginner Box. I had a lot of fun assembling the pawns from that box and placing them on the map for use during the adventure. I don't have the storage space or the budget to buy plastic or metal miniatures. I also don't have the craft skills to make paper minis. So, for me, pawns fit my requirements for miniature figures. The artwork is cool and they store easily in the Beginner Box or their own box.


Bestiary Box is the Answer to GM's Prayers!

5/5

When the clerk at the local game shop told me that the only way I would find a Pathfinder game would be to run one on my own, my mind immediately reeled thinking of the hundreds of miniatures that I would need to properly host a game.

Then I thought about the Pathfinder pawns line and the answer to my problem was in sight! I picked up the Bestiary Box prior to my first session and happily realized that almost every monster that I needed was represented within!

The pawns are sturdy and the artwork is gorgeous. The players really enjoy the added value of seeing the exact creatures they are facing. It makes encounter descriptions a breeze because I just set up the pawns and tell the players "this is what you see"!

You can't beat this selection for the price. Take your game to the next level. This first set is indispensable and will be the only monster box you'll need for a while!

We don't share our sales information, sorry! But given the fact we did have to reprint this, I'd say they're doing pretty darn well. :D

I think this set would also be better if long animals had long tokens instead of all being on tall tokens

Creatures don't take up rectangles in the Pathfinder RPG ruleset, and I'm fairly certain there's a layout concern regarding tall tokens vs. long tokens for these. Duly noted, however. :D


This is completely random, but is there a chance someone knows who did the art for the night hag in this set? I'd love to find the artist's website so I can see a higher-rez version of it. So far, google has been pretty unhelpful :(

No huge-sized Metallics? Shoot.

Ya I was kind of bummed about that too. Especially since we're not likely to get all the huge metallics in AP sets. I understand that they can only fit in so much but imo they should have replaced the huge white, black and something else with huge gold, silver and bronze dragons. I would be fine without huge versions the lesser true dragons (white, black, brass, copper).

From what I gather from the art there might be a silver in the Wrath of the Righteous set..... Maybe Mummy's Mask will have a huge gold and bronze..... :/


So this is pretty much out of stock with suppliers across the UK, according to the people I've spoken with. It's commanding prices north of £100 on amazon UK.

Is it due for a reprint/resupply anytime soon? My group is graduating from Beginner Box to core in a few weeks and it'd be nice to have a the B1 pawns to go with it!


I would also like to know when this item is getting restocked? I've ordered it a couple of times from local online shops, but a few weeks later they come back with 'oh, sorry, it's actually out of print'. Same happened with the Rise of the Runelords and NPC pawns!

(The lack of a tracking number for international shipping here makes ordering directly from paizo.com extremely stressful in a country where mail has a good chance of disappearing before it gets to the actual recipient :( )

Has anyone printed these from pdf? What are you printing onto / using for backing material. I have some 22pt chipboard I'm going to try for backing stock and printing onto 110 lb cardstock.

Also, has anyone messed around with resizing the minis? It irks me having the 4 foot dwarf the same height as the 6 foot elf. I also liked the idea of adding the monster type icons.

I like the PDF for the ability to print only what I need or want from the collection, and that in multiples.

I have printed my "thin-mini pawns" onto 65lb. cardstock paper (would have liked to have heavier paper, but not available). I glued the two facing sheets together, sandwiching a piece of 65 lb. cardstock between the two. I cut out the pawn with x-acto or scissors, and made into a "thin-mini." A staple put over the name does three things: obscures the name a bit, allows the stand Paizo gives to accept the thin-mini, and keeps the glued pawn's base from being curled or bent with use.

A while back I amassed some rectangular bases that accepted a thinner card stock pawn made by another company. These bases, if you have something similar, works without the staple.

I think I might buy a copy of this for the wild shapes my PFS Druid can use, they will also be useful in my 3.5 games.

I have to say I much prefer these stand up pawns to the "pogs" that WotC produce, I am actually selling my Monster Vault having never punched the pogs out.

Actually, they got them fixed up. The artwork for these two creatures got swapped in the Bestiary book. We know this because of the artist's website that drew them (and basic understanding of the colors of these metals).

Another thing you can do, especially if you have any pawns at all, is print them on sticker paper. What I've done is used my PDFs to make a template for Photoshop, so i can make pawns that I need for different adventures, and print them on sticker paper and paste them over pawns I don't need.


I'm a big fan of the Pathfinder Pawns product and have bought them all so far. I do have a question regarding swarm pawns though. According to the Bestiaries, swarms are 10 feet on a side. Therefore, why are the pawns representing swarms small size instead of large size? I just put my small pawns in large bases to address this, but I think they'd look better as large pawns to begin with.

Swarms can reshape and aren't always a square.

Any chance we can get this pdf updated so the large minis and and huge minis don't have to have their pages individually flipped when printing double sided? I print at Staples and this will becoming extremely annoying.


So I have a question about these Pawns and all the other Pawns, Im considering selling all my old plastic Minis and replacing them with Pawns what I want to know is how do the compare to the pawns in the beginers box cause those are the only ones I have seen?

Thanks in advance

Webstore Gninja Minion

The Beginner Box pawns are what inspired the rest of the Pathfinder Pawns sets—they're pretty much the same (besides different art).

Is the PDF similar to the AP paper mini's where they have the red folding line to make it easy to double side ?

They are very similar, but obviously some lessons from the Beginner Box were incorporated in later products.

The biggest difference is that the Bestiary Box pawns, unlike the Beginner Box pawns, are numbered (and for BB2 and later sets, indicate which set they're from. This may be the case with later printings of the Bestiary Box; mine date pre-date the "Pathfinder Pawn" brand).

The other difference of note is that small creatures have physically smaller pawns than medium creatures, which was not the case with the Beginner Box pawns.

I've converted to all pawns (except for PCs), and while minis look nicer, pawns are (obviously) much more cost effective, making it more likely that you'll have the right piece for the job. Unless you enjoy minis for other reasons (painting, collecting, etc.), I'd recommend the transition.


For the record, I _love_ this product.

There are, however, a few changes I would suggest:

Huge elementals come up pretty often; they should really be included. Some likely candidates for exclusion in order to make that happen include:

232 Aboleth
244 Dragon Turtle
246 Flytrap, Giant
253 Shoggoth
254 Slug, Giant
255 Squid, Giant

Likewise, we could have used more dire rats (practical minimum of 4) and shocker lizards (practical minimum of at least 2, if not 4) instead of that 4th bat or spider swarm (in fact,
I would have much preferred single large-size pawns for swarms).

Spoiler:

Then again, the four small pawns could have been an attempt to model the (imho ambiguous) swarm rules for swarm shapes (does the sentence "the area occupied by a large swarm is completely shapeable, though the swarm usually remains in contiguous squares" apply only to swarms larger than 10 feet on a side, as the placement and context imply?).

They do not. The PDF version contains the pawns in a dieline for cutting out as a single image (we also include the mirrored version for each sheet of pawns).

I wonder about the reason that this particular item is in such scarcity at other retailers, and as to whether this means that another reprint is imminent.

For the life of me I can't understand why the chromatic dragons got huge sizes but the metallic dragons were apparently snubbed. :(


Is this going to be reprinted? The secondary market is insane right now ($100+ for copies)


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

I got lucky and snatched one up on Amazon right when they started to become back ordered. You could check some local stores, they may still have some.

Seems Box 2 and 3 are also running low at various spots. I just ordered them. I've been gaming more at cons and theses helped out tremendously.

We have a restock coming—it should be here in under a month.

Liberty's Edge

Glad to see this was restocked on paizo.com. Will this be stocked at other retailers as well (local game stores/amazon/etc)?
Mostly concerned about additional shipping costs but will deal with that if this is the only place where boxes will be available for a while.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Retailers should be able to get restocks now.


I find it odd how the price on the back of the box says US $39.99 yet even Paizo is overcharging for it. Found an online site selling it for retail so that's great but really shocked that the company who makes it and has a direct impact on the availability is selling it like a scalper. -10 PP for you Paizo. You should take care of your customers NOT look at them as a scalper would.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Unfortunately, our manufacturing costs have gone up, so the new printing has an MSRP of $44.99. There are no other differences between the two most recent printings, so if you find one at the old price somewhere, grab it!


I bought the Bestiary Pawn set.
I really like the quality of the pawns themselves and the artwork.
On the other hand, I could only use 1 of the small, 3 of the medium (actually it is one that is duplicated three times), 7 of the large and 1 of the huge.
Granted, that does not include the 12 white, black, green, blue or red dragon pawns that I may be able to use on rare occasions.
Let us say I do use all of them - that would be 24 total pawns.
That is out of a set that has 256 different pawns with additional numbers of pawns due to multiples of a number of them.

Now, I have already been told that I screwed up; I should have just bought the pdf.
I reply that no I did the right thing because I would have not known what great quality the pawns' construction is if I had.

Before someone asks, let me state here that I am playing in a well known fantasy setting from a well known company in the industry.
I am not going to say what company or game because they come with a lot of baggage out here on the Net and that baggage is not pertinent to my inquiry here.
All I want to do is find a better way for a non-Pathfinder player to spend money on Paizo pawns without having "tons" of useless product, physically and/or digitally, hanging around.

Any way, my idea about how to go about this does not have Paizo coming up with a new physical pawn set.
My idea concerns a pdf.
A pdf which would allow a purchaser to select so many small, medium, large and huge pawn images from around the Paizo pawn stable and purchase that file as a custom pawn pdf set.

This set would allow for a non-Pathfinder gamer to purchase Paizo pawns without feeling like we are getting gypped.
All we, the non-Pathfinder gamers, would have to do is print then paste these images onto the pawns we cannot use from the initial pawn set we bought and then we would have the quality pawn construction with images that work for our gaming.

Actually, I have a question that needs answering at this point.
Let us use Ogres for this question.
They are Ogres in four different sets: Bestiary, Giantslayer, Monster Codex and Rise of the Runelords.
THE Q: Is any artwork repeated across the Ogre pawns of these sets?
I know within a set it is, but is it across sets?
If the image art is not duplicated across sets, then that multiplies what I would desire from the existing Paizo pawn sets because there are several monsters in the same situation as the Ogres that I can use in this special pdf set idea.

Moreover, this pdf set would also allow me to get pawns of monsters which are almost alone in their utility in my situation.
For example, all I want from Bestiary 2 is the Hippogriff.
Or the Wyvern from Hell's Rebels.
And there are several more monsters that have similar problems.
Do these examples make my pdf request more understandable?

Is this really a ridiculous appeal?
Is there anyone else that would like this pdf option?
This would allow me and thousand of other gamers like me to give Paizo more of our money without a great deal of extra work on Paizo's part at very little investment cost on Paizo's part.


If all you want is one pawn, the secondary market such as eBay often has individual or mix and matched sets available for purchase.

From some sets it is one type of pawn I need, not just a single pawn of a particular beast.

For example, I need to utilize not a single hippogriff, but D6 or 2D6 hippogriffs.

just curious how oftan does this come back in order?

I was wondering to as I ordered one, (Knowing it was backordered.)


I too wonder this. Even a ballpark estimate would be great.

We don't currently have a date for the restock—there are a few things queued up in front of it.


Is there any way to easily print variable numbers of specific pawns? I've been using (and loving!) my Bestiary PDFs for a long time now, but it does get frustrating and expensive to print 8 full-color pages of heavy cardstock because I need pawns for an encounter that features four Owlbears. The PDF is (sensibly) locked so that I cannot open it in Photoshop, so no easy creation there. Thoughts? Possible opportunity for a webpage app? Help? Please? :D

Do you have an estimated time? Or do you know how long it usually takes to restock an item?

2 people marked this as a favorite.

At this point, I'd put a 50% chance that we'll have them in stock by Gen Con in August.


Any recent news about a restock? We're getting close to August and no new messages here since April...
