The interstellar perils of Starfinder Alien Archive 2 come alive on your tabletop with this box-busting collection of more than 300 creature pawns for use with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game or any tabletop science fantasy RPG! Printed on sturdy cardstock, each pawn features a beautiful full-color image of an alien from the Starfinder RPG's second collection of interplanetary threats and unique player character races. Each cardboard pawn slots into a size-appropriate plastic base, making it easy to mix with traditional metal or plastic miniatures. With multiple pawns for commonly encountered creatures and a handful of new foes to fight in starship combat, the Starfinder Alien Archive 2 Pawn Box is the best way to ensure you’ve got the perfect characters to bring your Starfinder campaign to life!
Hundreds of aliens invade your tabletop! While creature pawns are broken out by base size, all starship pawns use medium bases. The Starfinder Alien Archive 2 Pawn Box includes the following:
The Alien Archive 2 Pawn Box is a hefty collection of over 300 thick, double-sided, full-colour cardboard pawns that fit into plastic bases (the box includes 35 bases, with coverage for all the sizes of pawns in the box). As the artwork is taken directly from Alien Archive 2, it's almost uniformly excellent. The box includes a good array of huge-sized creatures, and also has about a dozen starship pawns. Although I haven't done close comparison, I'm pretty sure that pretty much everything in the book has a pawn representing it in this collection. Of particular use to many GMs will be bone troopers and ghouls (useful for Dead Suns), while players will appreciate having pawns to play an uplifted bear, pahtra, or tiefling. Reviewing pawn boxes isn't easy as you pretty much get exactly as advertised, but I have no complaints about the collection and have used the set many times. The only minor complaint I have about all Paizo pawn collections is that they're difficult to organise once punched out, but various gamers have homebrewed their own solutions to that issue.
That seems to be the actual box art for Alien Archive 2.
Four months between release of the hardcover book and the pawns seems reasonable for such an extensive product.
I recognize from left to right:
-Acrochor (Dead Suns #4)
-Scyphozoan (Dead Suns #5)
-Rebuilt (Kish) (Dead Suns #4).
I really like the Alien Archive pawn box & this 2nd one will also be much appreciated!
Are these pawns numbered? (All the Pathfinder Bestiary Boxes were numbered, and most of the Pathfinder pawn sets were numbered, but so far none of the Starfinder ones have been. It's really help to have them labelled and numbered.)
