Solid set that continues the trend

4/5

This is a solid set that seems to be suffering under some expectations that may be a little too high. Online pics had me expecting some disasters but overall I will say that my set has some very good minis. My case contained a full set and in quantities that meant I really don't need to go looking for singles. Of course I have extra I won't use (4 merchants, 4 frost giant mages, 4 dancing girls, that sort of thing) but the fact that I don't need to go hunting for extras is a big plus for me.

Detail and paint jobs are generally good (I will address the ones I feel strongest about in individual reviews) looking far better than most of the online close ups. As far as NPCs/humanoids go there is an overall improvement in the standard, a big positive when you consider how much they've struggled in the past. Paint could still be applied thinner to prevent obscuring in some cases - most evident in some of the commons in my case where face, hand and feet are obscured, although not consistently - 2 of 4 vampire spawn have the problem, the other two are quite good for example.

For a prepainted cheaper alternative to painting yourself these are a solid 4 star, one off for some inconsistency between figures. And that's really the key - these are a prepainted cheaper alternative. You'll probably not be happy with these if you expect flawless paint jobs or sculpts. Another good set that continues to show improvements, now on to the next set...


Danger: Disappointment

2/5

This line has been getting better over recent sets, that the previews of this set looked immensely promising.

I was crestfallen to find that the sculpts fell short of the computer images, and the paint on many is poorly applied, dark-on-dark, inappropriately glossy in places, and generally detail-obscuring.

Maybe better-produced copies of half this set will be re-released later.


Best. Set. Ever.

5/5

I received my case today. From the previews I felt this might be the best set ever, and the case did not disappoint! Excellent paint jobs over all, and no botched faces.

I did have one of my four City Watch Commanders missing her bow. One of the Pious Guards and Fieya popped off their bases, but Superglue fixed that. The paint jobs on Fieya and the King's faces were better, but it is obvious that the sculpts lack detail and that even though the paint jobs are the best that can be done on the minis, the detail on the faces is shallow, so paint only goes so far in fixing the problem.

The dungeon dressing is great. I got two beds, two crates, and one of each of the rest. The bar incentive is very cool, but we need more tables and stools!


A *very* close second best set ever!

5/5

I waffled over this for days, but I still think Dungeons Deep is the best set to-date. That said, this set is a VERY close second. All of the sculpts that our local PFS lodge pulled from our sealed case draft were perfect. Very few had funny looking eyes (a regular thing that we just enjoy and even compete to try and get now), and absolutely 0 fell off their bases.

The paint jobs on all the furniture/dressing is exceptional, and the little details on the shields and uniforms of the General from Second Darkness and the various Guards are amazing. Our FLGS sold out of this set within 3 days of them being released!

Top notch work again, Paizo!

Looking at the pictures that Paizo has posted looks a little better than the ones that Miniature Market posted and gives me some hope. Although "most" of them look good, there are still a handful of the minis that are painted inexcusably bad. The Dwarf Wizard is horrible! The Graceful Slayer is almost as bad. Many of the eyes are placed ridiculously far apart or are just little black dots. Will they EVER learn how to do a wash? They constantly keep using a thick black solution on every color, you should wash with a thin solution of a darker shade of the same color, NOT BLACK!The point of a wash is to add detail, not make the mini look dirty, as the thick black wash does. I was REALLY looking forward to the riding horse, but if the one I receive looks like the one advertised, they just slapped the paint on. Hopefully, the Gnome Wizard not getting its boot painted is a one time mistake and the ones we receive have their boots painted. Aside from my complaints, there are many minis in this set that are VERY NICE! I am happy with most of them, it is just that the few that are bad are VERY BAD. The inconsistency confuses me, how can some be done really good while others are embarrassingly horrible? Have my fingers crossed that the case I receive looks good and that they are better than the advertised pictures.

I am HIGHLY curious to know if the Paizo staff is happy with the quality of this set. I don't know if they are going for honesty, disclosure, or to showcase the inferior job that WizKids did, but going through the pictures they posted of the singles, nearly every picture is flawed, whether it's by bad paint jobs, parts that they forgot to paint, bad washing, or poor glueing of the bases. I give Paizo a huge thumbs up for posting honest pictures of the minis and not just showcasing the best examples. At least I hope these aren't the best examples ;) Paizo, you need to kick WizKids in their butts, you guys are such an amazing company and they keep giving you an inferior effort.

Dark Archive

While i have to agree that a lot of the human and dwarven faces - especially the eyes - look bad on the pictures, i'll reserve my judgement until i hold them in hand in february.
It would not be fair otherwise.

That being said the Silver Dragon and Flesh Golem look great on every picture!
Also the pictures can not show all details - in particular the Quivering Cube, which is half clear and contains a skull and other stuff on the inside.

I opened my boxes quickly before going to bed and havent had the time for a deep look but the quality is not that bad at first look.

And sadly my brick have no Irovetti or Feiya, maybe it's one per case, but IIRC, they said one per brick.

We will know when someone open a complete case...

"Very Rare"?

Are the dressing pieces produced at a higher rarity than other rares in the set?

Hobbun wrote:

Hello Hobbun.

All 6 Dungeon Dressings are labeled as "very rare" on the site because they usually are one per case.

Of course that is not entirely correct, as there seem to be 2 crates and 2 barrels per case.

On the other hand one brick usually contains 2 large rares (and 6 uncommons).
That means in a case you should get 8 large rares.
As there are 4 different large rares per set you get some of them twice.

That is not the case with the wagon, cart, bed and table. These should be one per ser aka "very rare".

That means on the other hand the barrel and crate could be labeled "rare" as they are twice per case.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

My case had at least one of every mini. Here was the breakdown of the case:

1 super box with Feiya and King Irovetti in it.
1 cart, wagon, bed, barrel.
2 tables, crate

The following are numbered by set number on mini. Rares are high numbers in set.

5 x mini no. 7 and 8
4 x mini no. 2, 4, 6, 9-12, 21, 27, 30 and 32
3 x mini no. 1, 3, 5, 13-20, 25, 26, 28, 29 and 31
2 x mini no. 22-24 and 34* (note, this box contained a bag with two of same figure in the same small bag. As its a rare, I think it was a packing error.)
1 x mini no. 33, 35-44.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Honestly, from what I am seeing, it doesn’t sound like the dressing pieces are at any higher rarity than the other rares. As there are other rares (besides the dressing pieces) that only have 1, and there are dressing pieces that have more than one.

Vic posted a comment awhile back that Paizo are not using that terminology. As I understood it, the distribution wasn't identical to the other rates as it was a little more deterministic, but it was functionally the same (ie we should expect at least one per case and possibly two, barring collation error).

Dark Archive

Every Pathfinder Battles case i opened so far (3) had 8 LARGE rares in it.

As there are 4 different LARGE rares (Gelatinous Cube, Mercane, Silver Dragon, Orc on Worg) plus 2 LARGE Dungeon Dressings (Cart and Wagon), there SHOULD be 2 LARGE rares that are in it TWICE.

Otherwise it would seem to me that the rarity has changed.

PS: Eric said in a friday blog that there are probably 2 crates and 2 tables (or barrels i forgot) per case.

Right. Neither Paizo nor WizKids has used the term "very rare" or "super rare" in connection with these minis—if you see that, some fan came up with that tag, and it has no basis in the actual distribution method used by WizKids. Frankly, I feel that it's use is just plain misleading. You should see set dressing pieces in roughly the same proportion as rares in each case of minis, which is to say 1 or 2 of each per case. (They're not technically rares because they sometimes appear in uncommon slots, but they're not significantly more or less rare than rare.)

Www.miniscollector.com uses the term "very rare".

I don't know on what they base that term .
Wizkids actually uses the term "ultra rare" but to be fair only in conjunction with the invisible versions of their D&D minis NOT with the Pathfinder Battles line.

You are most likely right that there is no great difference between the number of Dungeon Dressing pieces or other rare minis.
If there is it is probably due to packing coincidences.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps Subscriber

GRRR! This is way off topic, but nothing makes me angrier in the miniature collecting world than the D&D ultra rare invisible minis. I like them and they are cool, but the distribution and price of them is criminal. They take the exact same mold and plastic that they use for the cheap commons, then just skip painting them, then make them so rare that they are sold for insanely greedy fortunes as singles. Perfect example of WizKids left unchecked and Paizo's superior products compared to this day's D&D inferiority. Anyways, sorry for the rant, but the D&D invisibles really tick me off.

It would be cool if the Pathfinder Iconics would have some invisible versions.

But either at the normal "rare" rarity or as a boxed set for $25 - as they need no paint applied to clear plastic.

I also would love to see an "enlarged Valeros" mini.

The "artifical" value created by rarity doesn't bother me. I am surprised we haven't seen any 'enlarged' minis though (or I haven't anyhow).

The Gelatinous Cube has been rated 5 stars!
I want to see more reviews!


I picked up three boosters this evening at the FLGS to check out the quality and I have to say I am happy with what I got. Nothing looked smeared or problematic (unlike some of the photos online I've seen). The crate was a little smaller than I expected for some reason -- about the size of a large d6 -- but I'm not sure why I thought it would be bigger. All in all I'll be going back for more or ordering a case.

Nope. Can't put minis in the cube. It's nicely done though.

Can you tell me how many squares the bed occupies on a flip-mat - is it 1 broad and 2 long or a little smaller?
The same with the cart and wagon mini.

Thx

Dark Archive

When i think of it:
2 beds and 2 crates in a case makes the most sense because with the 2 barrels and 1 table in the Rusty Dragon Inn Bar case incentive one should ultimately have:

3 barrels
2 beds
2 crates
4 stools
2 tables
1 cart
1 wagon
1 keg

Together with some of the "Blue Bed" repaints that should make a cozy little Inn.

The only minis i see "sitting" on the stools are gnomes and halflings and the occassional goblin. ;-)

From the recent posts I’ve been reading on frequency of the dressing items, this is what I was getting the impression. And that is there is no higher rarity with the dressing pieces.

The numbers I’ve been seeing is actually very similar to what I saw with my dressing pieces in my Dungeons Deep cases.

If I get at least one of each, with the occasional two of a dressing item, in a case, I will be happy with that. Which is exactly what I received in Dungeons Deep.

Now we just need some chairs for those tables. :)

Thanks for clarifying, Vic.

Just received email notification yesterday that my Rusty Dragon Inn cases (well, at least one of the two) will be mailing out this week. Both case incentives are part of this first shipment, though.

Is there still enough room for medium minis/bases in the adjacent squares?


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

May be my map is bigger but I just pulled out my flip mat and the bed fits almost perfectly in 1x2 squares. It's a little smaller with small portion on all sides if you center the bed in the 1x2 squares.

Dark Archive

I guess it depends on which flip-mat you use.

Sadly not all are the same size.

Duncan, how big is the wagon?
Big enough for a large mini to stand on it?

Thx

Dark Archive

The pictures suggest that the cart can hold a large mini's base (2x2 squares) and that the wagon can hold 2 (2x4 squares).

Is that true?

Is there room for a mini on the stagecoach?

The Gelatinous Cube mini is glued to its base so you'd have to mod it to be able to place a mini inside of it. However it does already have a second piece within it that has a skeleton and some gear in it so when you look at the mini, you can see the remains of an adventurer inside of it. Pretty kewl if you ask me.
