Wizkids, the industry leader in pre-painted plastic miniatures, has announced a new line of unpainted plastic miniatures sets featuring more than 150 new sculpts. Available for both their Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons licenses, they are scheduled for a 4th quarter 2016 release. Three types of packs will be available:
- Hero Packs will contain both a low-level and high-level sculpt of the same featured character.
- Designed with army-building in mind, Monster Packs will contain 1-3 miniatures with different poses of a single monster.
- Item Packs will contain scenery and items for detailing adventures.
I’ve said in other posts that there are a few different types of miniatures purchasers. This line will address a couple of those needs. First, the player looking for that one awesome figure to represent their character. The Hero Packs will provide a player with both a low-level and high-level version to represent their character as the adventurer levels into epic status. Monster packs will satisfy a game master’s need to have large numbers of the same type of baddies. The Item Packs are just icing on the cake!
These images taken by Paizo’s miniatures maven Eric Mona at the GAMA Trade Show depict an awesome pair of sculpts of the iconic Pathfinder fighter, Valeros.
The highly detailed miniatures feature an enhanced sculpting process, which highlights minute elements, and includes deep cut surface detail and scaled features for easier hand painting. They also come in dynamic and exciting poses, are pre-primed with Acrylicos Vallejo paint, and are ready to go directly out of the box. Customize the look and feel of your characters and campaign like never before. – Wizkids
The WizKids’ announcement does not list a price, but Paizo’s site says that “each pack will be priced from $2.99-$3.99, depending on the size and number of figures included.” Expecting the same superb craftsmanship as their sold out Rusty Dragon Inn set reviewed earlier, we miniatures connoisseurs are in for a treat!
