Getting Better!

5/5

I thought the last couple of sets were good, but not amazing. This set improves on some issues seen recently. The faces are getting better, but still a little room for improvement. Dungeon dressing is a great addition. 4.5/5 stars!

My son and I posted an unboxing video of our 2 bricks where you can see the actual miniatures in-hand.

Last of the Best

5/5

This line has gotten increasingly good in terms of quality & content, and this set is the pinnacle of that trend.

It's a shame that the production quality descends with the next, Rusty Dragon Inn, set, especially since the quality of the content continues to improve.


The best set yet!

5/5

Of 50 minis i rated:
1 star: 1 mini (the large Griffon),
2 stars: 6 minis,
3 stars: 14 minis,
4 stars: 15 minis,
5 stars: 14 minis!

THE GOOD:
I like the animals (bat and dino), the 4 Gnolls, the vermin, the basic larges (Dire Boar, Dire Bat, Emperor Cobra, Teror Bird) and i love the 3 Lovecraft mythos creatures!

THE BAD:
Clockwork Golem, Daughter of Urgathoa and Paladin of Abadar.

THE UGLY:
Griffon


Surely they can't ALL be "the best set we've done to date..."?

5/5

Well, this one is. Plus it had to get over my bias against dungeon dressing (so count this as a five star rating from a minus one star start).

Wizkids and Paizo have done their typical, stellar job of rarity determination and collation. I got at least one of every figure in my case and ended up with multiples of the things I need multiples of and single copies of those that tend to come in ones.

I was struck by the colour scheme. Typically, I find PFBattles figures to be a little too bright and cartoony. These were much more to my taste. I had zero issues with any paint jobs - melty faced or otherwise (though I confess I'm a little less fussy than most, in that regard).

I really wish the dungeon dressing was in its own line of products (a la the iconics line) as I feel they're sufficiently different from "regular" figures to warrant separation. As it is, I find a niggling part of my brain resenting the fact that I subsidised the production of these when I COULD have been subsidising another half dozen rare monster sculpts.

Despite that one negative, the quality of this set demands a five star rating. This is right up there as one of my all time favourite cases from any miniatures manufacturer.


Wizards Beware

5/5

I can't afford a case so got a brick. Excellent sculpts and paint jobs on these. The goblin archer is a joy, as is the mouther monster. The bone golem is awesome, having real presence on the table. Lucky enough to get a chest and a mimic yay! A bit miffed to get 2 Yithians in one brick. My griffin somehow reminds me of The Muppet Show eagle, is that just me? Love it anyway. These are streets ahead of the Icons of the Realms Wizards brick I picked up a while back - better quality all round. I'll be sticking to Pathfinder prepainted minis from here on in. Well done Paizo for insisting on quality.

Anyone else opening a case/brick get any boxes that didn't have a Large figure in one box? One of my boosters had 4 mini's, and none of them was large (it also didn't have the large mini plastic insert) so the box was lighter and rattlier. My set is complete, so I'm not really vexed, just odd.

Also rarity wise I probably could have used less alien tentacle large figures and more golems, based on what I'm likely to need in volume.

How was the paint job with your minis? Were they as good as the previews? Were the colors the same as the previews?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps Subscriber

First let me say MOST of this set is GREAT. The complaint I have, mostly because it is an ongoing problem, is that WizKids keep messing up the faces of humanoids. I love playing dwarves, so I was really looking forward to the awesome sculpts of the ones in this set, but alas. Why do the WizKids painters keep caking on the face paint way too thick of dwarves, humans, elves, etc. completely ruining all of the details. It keeps happening set after set after set, who is painting these faces, Tammy Fay Baker? There are so many other Pathfinder minis that are painted so well (for prepainted) so why can they detail a gnoll face so well, but totally destroy the same kind of face they see in the mirror? I think that WizKids needs to have a expert painter sit down with whatever Chinese sweat shop workers WizKids is having paint these minis and give them a good how to paint faces class. If they could just fix the face issue Paizo minis would be darn near perfect (for prepainted). I was also really excited about the Gnome Summoner from the trade show photos, but the ones in the case don't even come close to matching the previewed ones, I'm not talking about the digital renders, sadly I know they will never match those, nor do I expect them to. So, mostly GREAT set Paizo, just a few complaints, sadly in my opinion, they are significant issues. Keep up the great work and polish up the face issues.

This is where I disagree. Not that it should match the digital renders EXACTLY, but they should come pretty darn close. I mean this is the whole point WizKids switched over to the new process, is it not? Also, these digital renders are the ones that are being previewed to us, what the miniatures ‘should’ look like, so this is what my expectations are (or very close to it).

I’ve only received the first set for the iconic miniatures, and they look fabulous. From my understanding, the process that is being used for them was supposed to be used from then on with all the PFB line.

However, hearing about/seeing poorly painted (blobbed) faces isn’t inspiring any confidence in me.

They are quiet good, the Mi-go and Elder Thing were really neat uses of translucent plastic that doesn't come through in the pictures. The props are also really cool, my random luck I got extra monkey statues, when I would have preferred more braziers or sarcophagus, but they are all great.

Adding my agreement to Brell, the dwarf faces look weird, smooth, and kind of creepy.

What about the faces of the other NPCs/PCs? Or is it just the dwarves that have the smooth/odd/badly painted faces?

I guess I could live with one or two minis having bad paint jobs, but if it’s the humanoid faces in general (Brell mentioned humans, elves, gnomes along with the dwarves) then that would be a real problem.

And WizKids ‘can’ paint faces well. From my iconic set #1 all of the minis look fantastic, including the faces. So it can be done. Would just like to see it done more consistently.

I am going to take a black sharpie to one Dwarf and make it look like she is wearing a mask. That way the lack of detail will not be an issue.

I have to admit I would love to know why humanoid faces are the issue they can't seem to beat. I would be curious if it is a paint issue. The "skin tones" paint, is it thicker maybe?

Regardless, I wish they could deal with it.

Maybe just take a paint thinner and lightly spray the face, where it melts paint it will look like rugged scared face, or perhaps youthful acne.

With this set I'm mostly talking about the dwarves. My reference to the other humanoids is talking about the ongoing issue with many of the humanoid faces in all sets, not counting the iconics sets, which are very nice and prove that they can do it right. The gnome summoner is also no where the quality advertised, but I'm not too freaked about him because I will get a better version of him in the iconic set. Paizo is a AWESOME company and have NEVER seen any company come even close to their customer service level, I just wish they would use a different manufacturer than WizKids. Paizo gets the best quality that WizKids provides seeing how Pathfinder Battles minis are painted far better than Heroclix painted by WizKids, but there are better manufacturers out there. One of the best lines of prepainted minis I ever saw was Rackham's Confrotation line. I wish Paizo would switch to somebody like that. I can't even repaint the dwarves faces to make them look decent because the paint is caked on so thick that there is zero detail left, barely even a nose left, forget about the ears and mouth. I also wish they would go back to painting the goblins the way they did prior to the We Be Goblins case. The new paint is too neon and WizKids has no idea how to dry brush, just looks blotchy, I prefer the original smooth goblin paint jobs, if I wanted more detail I could add a wash to their face. WizKids also is not good at washing small minis, they do a great job of washing big things like dragons, trolls, and giants, but human sized and smaller they just mess up with their thick chalky wash. I don't mean to sound like a harsh jerk, I am mostly very happy with the set, I would probably give it 3.5 (would be 4, but I disagree with which minis are common vs. rare) stars. I just wish they would fix these ongoing issues that could have been ironed out several sets ago.

And this one line is the key right here. It would be one thing if this was the first set, second set or even third set, but Deep Dungeons is the ninth main set. I agree with Brell, this is something that could (should) have been ironed out several sets ago.

Paizo is a wonderful company. I know they truly do care, which is not what I can say for most companies. And I know Erik truly pours his heart into Pathfinder Battles being the best it can be in regards to minis. He loves this line, and it shows in his blog posts and when I've spoken to him directly. But there is only so far he can go as he can’t actually control the manufacturing process, he can only tell them what he expects and wants.

I am sure WizKids is not doing it purposefully, but there is obviously adjustments that need to be made, and I am worried if they are going to be with this many sets in.

The Iron Maiden IS the large miniature in that booster.

It probably should have a plastic insert though...

Our sealed case draft went off really well - only complaint from people is that we only got 2 Elder Things and 2 Mi-Go.

Funny moment - noticing that at least one Giant Crawling Hand had the base label for the Deinonychus. Someone snatched that one up right away to be a "unique" mistake one, heh.

Unlike past drafts we've had locally, there was fierce competition for all of the sculpts right up to the final picks - there weren't 5 wollipeds sitting around that nobody really wanted waiting for the people who still had picks left at the end this time!

I've used the dungeon dressing in two PFS scenarios already, and my players love seeing it on the board (and now they think *everything* could be a mimic, which is awesome too)!

Major kudos for this whole set, Paizo!


Pathfinder Adventure Subscriber

Any update on when/if the dungeon dressing pieces will be available as singles?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Anymore impressions from those whom have opened up their case(s)?

My actual booster case came into today, although I received the case incentive (and my iconics) on Saturday. However, I probably won't open up my case for a little while yet as I'm in the process of organizing my minis and don't have anywhere right to put the new (DD) minis.

I'm still trying to use the tackle boxes, and they work well for small, medium and some larges, but going to have to find better means for my huges and gargantuans. And there are just so many minis I have now it is going to take awhile to organize.

Edit: Also, I am interested in hearing what the status of the dressing singles. With them being rares, I know that I am going to want additionals on at least a few of them. The braziers and treasure chest pop immediately to mind. And I am sure there are many others who are in the same boat.

Liberty's Edge

I ended up buying a case. I have a bunch of duplicates (several rare) I do not need, including the dungeon dressing pieces. PM me if you are interested in a trade.

Oh yeah, and awesome job on the Veiled Master and the Bone Golem. Really nice miniatures.


This time around, it was the dwarves that got hit with the bad faces brush. As noted by others, the Barbarian's face is rather flat and the paint just seems globby on it. The female dwarf has a very round face with only a hint of a nose and mouth; the paint easily obscures the detail. Also, she's painted as though she has a receding hairline but I can see where the hairline should be under the flesh paint while too much brown paint for the hair was applied to the sides of her face covering what should have been her exposed ears. The faces on my Mad Prophet and Edano Kline were well done.

My only other complaint about the paint jobs is that the Gnoll Warrior received a very dark paint job that hides a lot of the sculpt's detail. It should have been given the same lighter palate as the Gnoll Slaver.


To Erik and Vic:

I just want to say that this was the best paint job of any set I've received so far from you guys. Even the dwarves that some of the others have complained about, while not perfect, are leagues better than Feiya. Definitely serviceable and I have no qualms putting them on my table. I am extremely happy with how this set turned out, and definitely appreciate the effort.

I've expressed my hesitation towards the next set due to my fear that there will be too many non-combat NPCs included in the set, however, in an effort to show my appreciation for the efforts you and your team have put towards improving the paint quality, I will maintain my subscription for a case of Rusty Dragon Inn no matter the figures you choose to include in it.

Great job and thank you!


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Curmudgeonly, that’s great to hear that you feel it’s the best paint job of any set. Although will have to say that the dwarves are not as bad as Feiya doesn’t inspire any confidence as there were things wrong with Feiya beyond a bad paint job. :)

But I think the rest of what the others are saying (and at least myself), is we don’t want the thicker (globby) paint jobs, either, which is nowhere close to the Feiya or Queen Illeosa issues. And I guess I’m just worried that the viewpoint from WizKids will be “that is just going to happen with prepainted plastic minis, sometimes.” Considering how many sets we are in and still having the problems.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps Subscriber

Curmudgeonly, Any criticism I have given this set wasn't done with the intention of bashing it. It was just to offer my opinion on what could make these sets even greater in the future. For the most part I LOVE this set. Most of the minis are AMAZING. I only point out the dwarves for two reasons, 1: To bring attention to the issue, to help with future quality levels. 2: Because in the entire set, the minis I was looking forward to the most were the dwarves, so when they were the only bad paint jobs, it was more disappointing to me. I love dwarves, I have wanted Paizo to make male and female versions of the same type of race/class minis for a long time and this is the closest I have seen to that idea being put into place. Sadly, even though the sculpts were great, the painters ruined them. So when I offer criticism, it isn't to bash Paizo or because I dont appreciate their effort or the great services and products that they offer to the gaming community. It is because I know they actually care about their products, customers, gaming, and quality and they listen to what we say. In many ways the painting on this set has improved over past sets, for one example I didn't see nearly as much of the bad dry brushing that looks gloppy that I have seen in other sets, like the goblin archers in this set look a lot smoother, similar to the ones from Heroes and Monsters and not the horribly painted ones from the We be Goblins set. If out of a set of 50+ minis I only have issue with 2 of them, that is a pretty good compliment. Sadly they were the 2 I was really looking forward to. So Erik and Vic and EVERYONE at Paizo, this was a AMAZING, AWESOME, USEFUL set and I appreciate every single thing that you ALL do for the gaming community and all of the countless hours you put into making it great. If anything I have ever said has sounded harsh or hurtful in any way, I APOLOGIZE to you, my intent isn't to hurt, but to help by offering the insight of what this one somewhat picky customer likes and dislikes about your products. Keep up the great work!


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

I’m going to have to say it’s a little sad on how little activity this thread gets now, even with everyone receiving their Dungeons Deep product.

I remember with the older sets of the PFB line, there would be many people posting what they received for their case, or just post their impressions on the miniatures. Where we have had some impressions, not all that much. I even remember a thread (for each set) dedicated to what each person received in their case(s).

Maybe it’s because it’s a little early yet on people receiving their minis and we will get more activity. However, if not, then yes, it’s a little sad that the activity (interest?) for PFB has waned.

I had some time today, so I broke out my paint kit and tried to do a fix on the dwarves. With the female dwarf, the fix was easy. Use a fine brush and paint flesh along the sides of her face and under her chin to push back the brown paint and expose her ears and the under chin. Next take some brown paint and extend her hairline a bit down her forehead. It's amazing how much better looking this makes her face! Lastly, carefully dab a bit of red paint on her lips. The lips are there; they are just very hard to see under the flesh paint.

The male dwarf is more problematic since the flatness of his face is the main reason he looks bad. I had to mix a bit of red and brown paint to match his hair and paint in the sides of his head where he's supposed to be shaved and paint over where a stripe of flesh was painted in his beard to indicate a mouth. Next, carefully brush flesh paint over the top of his nose. Let this dry and repeat the process three more times to build up the nose. Lastly, do a light wash of black over the beard and hair to even out the color. Let the black settle into the spot in the beard where the mouth should be. This isn't as good a fix as with the female dwarf, but it does improve the face quite a bit.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps Subscriber

Vernon, thanks for the pointers, very helpful advise. The one thing I do different than many people is, when I paint a face I do the eyes and mouth before I do the skin on the face. It allows you to be a little messy and make good pupils and lips, then you use the skin paint to go around the eyes and mouth, using the skin paint to actually shape the eyes and mouth. Often I will even do a darker outline around the eyes before outlining with the skin color. Gives it a dark eyeliner look. Then do my drybrushing (if necessary) and then a wash. Building a new nose with built up paint is a great idea. Don't think I can save the mouth on most of the male dwarves though. I'll probably just paint beard over it and give him bad beard grooming habits :)

Yep, a little early. Despite having "ship as soon as available" checked, my case was only shipped last week. It also doesn't help that I am in Canada, so I'm expecting mine in about 4 weeks. *sighs*

I really wish they would start shipping the international packages early.

I understand why they don't, but as a Swede, I can say that I sure wouldn't complain if they did - but hey, at least we get the stuff quicker than the ANZies seem to.


Got a Brick + 2 more boosters and the Gargantuan red at a local store.

Realy pleased by what I got and the quality is great.

Ochre Jely, Mimic, the elder thing, the dire boar,the gnoll priestess are some of those I like the most. The cruel conjurer is a nice surprise and look a lot beter than I expected with the preview.

I Got 3 dressing items: the cauldron, the brazier and the idol. The Cauldron is my favorite.

The gargantuan red is realy nice, my only small grip is that a darker red would have looked beter and make it more in line with the evolution series

I would agree with this, the red is brighter and doesn't match all the other red dragons in the series.

Also, the horns are beige instead of black (at least on mine) whereas the evolution set had black horns.

Just like people's hair turns grey as they age, so do a dragon's horns lighten ;)

Got mine this morning but had to wait until I got home from work. I opened my case with much anticipation and was really disappointed. Not by the quality, these look really good, even the ones I was most concerned about. I would almost say this is the best set yet to my mind. Of course I can't say that because my case came with three, yes THREE, duplicated bricks! I have a lot of griffons and bats and many missing minis. No bone golem, no veiled master, no rare gnolls, but many Yithians and a load of dwarves. Most unfortunately I have a few of the dressings. No braziers or chests or idols. I've been a subscriber from the start, this has been the worst case to date. Given the difficulty of actually getting the braziers on the singles market I think I may just have to miss out this time.

I'm sure it'll get a lot easier to get the singles once more people get their cases and start putting their extras up for sale. Don't worry, just give it a few weeks/months and I doubt any figure will be difficult to get.

Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Oh, it's not a huge deal. Just caught me by surprise. I've heard of two dupes, just not three. Curious to see it this has happened to anyone else? I wrote that shortly after opening the case, on reflection I got some very nice minis, the set is really well done and the range in this set was what kept me a subscriber. Surprisingly I only missed out on s few I was really keen for, benefit of the smaller size sets? I can always look on the singles or fork out for another case perhaps if the next D&D one has little I want in it (if it's like the last one I'll be skipping it, very poor turn out). Better luck with Rusty Dragon, kind of eagerly awaiting that one too, the more I see of the bar the more I kind of want one - must be an plastic addict.

On the singles note - any word down the grapevine on when the dressings will hit the store?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Cat-thulhu, that’s a bummer.

An earlier set (I think it was Shattered Star) I had received a duplicate brick in the case. But I had gotten two cases of this set so I ended up getting a full set (and more), so I wasn’t worried about it. And the second case gave me a full set in it’s own.

However, three duplicates, I can understand how that can be really disappointing. I am thinking it’s an anomaly as normally they (WizKids) are usually quite good at giving us a full set with one case.

You mentioned you were only short a few on the minis you were really keen for, but how many minis are you short in having a full set?

Shadow Lodge

Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Yeah I put it down to a one off, never had any issues before with prior sets. It's no biggie since I may order another case and that'll fill the gaps, leaving some multiples for friends? In the end I think I was just missing 5 rares- veiled master, bone golem, both Gnolls and Eando Kline I believe. The puckwudgie, mimic as well. I just ended up with a lot of 1 of many uncommon and 1-2 of many commons, rather than the normal 3-4 and 4-5 respectively. But I got a load of dwarves, gnolls, Baykok, gremlins, beetles, griffons (hmmm), mad gnomes and bats. And three Orc doomsayers! But also 3 balazars.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Well, at least you received a bunch of dwarves, beetles, gnolls and bats. I can see any of those as a large contingent being used at once.

It’s too bad you didn’t get at least one chest. I am curious to hear what you thought of it, seeing it in person, on a base. I always thought it was a bit odd to have it attached to a base, I think it would look better if it was just by itself, like most of the rest of the dressings (besides the cauldron) are.

I know why they did so, as it doubles for the ‘hidden’ Mimic. But then you aren’t supposed to know it’s a Mimic when it’s in chest form. :)

Do you have a subscription? If so, the price is actually very reasonable now. Not including shipping, my case came out to around $280 ($290 with case incentive), which is the cheapest I’ve seen it online.

I do - I'm scraping up the $300. ^_^

Cat-thulhu, that's really terrible, and an obvious collation error on the factory side. We're looking into it and will contact you shortly.

Hobbun the chest is NOT on a base, it's a free mini. Take a look on ebay or even here on the singles (not available) but it appears to be a separate piece.

Kalindra I have bought 1-3 cases of every set to date, most through paizo, some as impulse buys around tax return time (I have no self control). So that is around 20 cases i think and I have NEVER had a duplicate brick until now. In the past I have heard of a few but they seem rare. I wouldn't worry too much, I suspect Wizkids do a bang up job and this is the rare exception rather than the rule.

Erik it's not a huge issue to me. As I said to Kalindra I sure it's a rarity. I come from the old D&D days when you HAD to buy 3 cases just for a small chance at a full set. This is a hell of a set and I may well be looking at getting a second case - of course if it happened again I may hit the unhappy button. It was an odd experience because I opened one case, then a second that was different, then the third and it was only around half way through when i got the second Doomsayer I took a hard look and realized I had a little less variety than normal. When the second Balazar hit the floor I knew what had happened. It was only part way through the last one, with my 8 griffons, 8 dwarves, third doomsayer and third balazar that I did a quick recount. What I can say - not really your fault, Paizo don't pack these and after 22 odd cases I think I did OK.

Some positive feedback for you though Erik, since you don't always seem to get it. This set is very, very nice. It may well be my favourite to date (until Rusty comes out anyway) The minis are well painted in the majority and most of the sculpts are very appealing. I think the range of creatures in this set, combined with the rarity, has hit that sweet spot for me and shows the clear efforts you've put into the line. As is often the case some faces could be painted better (the dwarves mainly) but even these have faces with detail, simply a little too heavy on the paint. Its a 5 star set, as my review indicates, bask in your victory.

This is why I LOVE Paizo! What other company ANYWHERE would care enough to be as proactive with its customer service? WTG Erik!

Oh, ok. That's good then. All the pictures I have seen online for the chest have shown it's on a base. And I thought I remember one of the Paizo employees mentioning earlier on that the chest has a base, but I am glad it doesn't. Not that it would have been a huge deal if it did, but it does make a lot more sense that it doesn't.

But really glad you are super happy with the set. Really looking forward to busting mine open and seeing what I got. :)

It took a whole week but I finally finished opening my case today. This set is just awesome. The molds and paint for most figures really stand out among prepainted miniatures. It always surprises me how massive for the bases some figures end up being. The packaging still appears very rough on weaponry. Nothing terrible or unfixable, just a note on long thinner pieces. I don't mind asymmetry, I even prefer it, but I want to straighten a few figures. A noted improvement is that none of the figures are bending away from the base with thin feet attachments. I had a few of those with Lost Coast humanoids. The quality tends to improve with each set. The lovecraftian style horrors have a wonderfully creepy look to them. Those figures especially have cross game usability, so I hope to see continued inclusion in future sets. Some stand outs from this set are the cruel conjurer, the mimic, the two rare gnolls, half orc adept, and all four large rares. The dungeon dressing is very fun and useful. I want to see more in future sets. I wouldn't mind the chest, brazier, or idol taking up an uncommon slot even. I pulled two cauldrons when I would have rather have pulled a third chest or double of another dressing. That is just luck, not a complaint. I also only pulled two terror birds and three deinonychus, which I was hoping to get lucky on extra pulls of. Will likely pick up more as singles. No doubles on the rares, which there were few I would want doubles of. Overall a strong distribution even though I hoped for stronger pull on a few figures. Pretty much every figure should be useful for my group.

I have still yet to get my case. I got the Gargantuan Red Dragon, which looks great, but the UPS tracking number I was given for the case still shows as not yet shipped.

I love the dungeon decor, but I did put them all on bases. Drop of super glue, little black circle, easy-peasy.

You should post this in the Customer Service forum. With your order number.

Hi Soup,

We saw your post on the Customer Service messageboards, and our warehouse manager is looking into the issue right now. I'll post an update on that thread once I get an update for you.

Let me know if there's anything else i can help out with in the meantime! :)

Thanks

I finally opened up one of my (two) cases of Dungeons Deep. Didn’t have the chance yet as I’ve been re-organizing my miniatures (still have a long ways to go).

But I am actually very happy with the paint jobs of the set. Even the faces of the dwarves, which I was nervous about from what has been said, looked good. Not the best of the set by any means, but better than I was expecting.

As for the dressings, they were smaller than I expected, but then when thinking about it, they were correct on scale. All were great paint jobs, my favorite especially being the sarcophagus. I received one of each for all except the Idol, which I received two.

The only issue I had was one of the (medium) minis popped off the base. But nothing was broken, even the nubs were still at the bottom of the feet. A little super glue and it will be as good as new.

I hope I don't have that problem. I'm likely to super glue the darn thing to my nose. :-)
