Some of these paint jobs are really really rough. The halfling slinger, really jumped out as being a rough color job.

Hey, Teo, nice to see you putting the effort to tell us about the monsters using their pathfinder lore/mechanics!
That Dragon Turtle is amazing!

I’ve been helping with Pathfinder since before Year 0 of PFS, and luckily I count a number of the staff as friends. I have to say I love your detailed commentaries, nice work here!

Great video! Yeah, this is definitely a starter set for people getting into minis for Pathfinder(or even D&D), with all the very common creature types! :D

Looks like a nice set, especially, like you said, for a new group wanting to jump in with a set that includes a lot of basics. I have to say that, in the case of minis that were both in this set and in the Preview Pack, I much prefer the painting jobs on the figures from the Preview Pack. You guys are the best at making these minis reviews with all the background info, playing suggestions and tips, detailed content of every boosters/bricks, etc. Keep up the amazing work!

A lot of cool looking minis for this set! A few that really stand out that I would love to get first would have to be the Aboleth, the Chimera (can’t believe it’s only Uncommon!) and especially the Dragon Turtle.

I love that Dragon Turtle I not only want I need one. That Nightmare is different from a D&D Nightmare but I gotta say the Pathfinder one is great. Thanks again for another great review.

Alright, it's finally here! Thanks Theo, you're a hero! I only ordered a brick and 1 Goblin Village, hope that's enough for a beginner collector/GM wannabe like me.

Hi Theo, are you on the Paizo message boards? Jump on, the community is very supportive and I am sure you will get a number of viewers.

Just snagged a brick of these, thanks to this video. I usually buy D&D minis but I really love these, thanks for always doing close, detailed videos of minis! You definitely deserve the freebies from Wizkids!

Any Thoughts on a case purchase as a d&d player?

I love Pathfinder gobbies but the hobs and kobolds are trashcan ( my favorite sculpts for sure are from otherworld miniatures! ).

I'll admit, I was really skeptical with the paint job. Even though you assured us that it was because of how zoomed in the video was, I still believed they had a bad paint job. Man was I wrong. Just picked up a couple of boosters from my FLGS today and they were pretty solid. I was surprised. I thought theyd be really bad, but they were still in line with the quality i expect from wizkids.

I adore the new Hobgoblin designs, which I believe to be a really unpopular opinion. But I've never liked pathfinder or DnD Hob Goblins until these new ones

How did you already get it? When’s mine coming?

Just opened my case. Had one broken arm on an orc and one of my cloud giants has the feet glued in the opposite spots from the rest.

I see the dragon has some bendy wings... hot/cold water can help with that. As for the PC/NPC minis, I still find dwarf or halfling wizards strange, I prefer 2E rules where these races were only into clerical magic... but as you said, that halfling wizard looks a lot like the gnome Dungeon Master from the old toon. Might get him.

Do dnd minis use this system to get all rares with a case?

The ONLY reason I don’t buy pathfinder boxes is because the Nerdarchy goblins completely annihilate my immersion the same way chibi minis do 😂

They have a lot of cool creatures but I personally dread getting a handful of despicable me minions that I can’t trade out for a vegepigmy tribe

Author — Pray, tell me Friend!

I actually prefer the goblins from pathfinder and plan to buy the set of 3 unpainted one and the legendary adventures preview pack to have a good range of them as I hate having more than 1 of a scuplt, making all the minis the same just is bland and boring even with a different paint job.
