    Pathfinder Battles Preview: Rise of the Runelords Round-Up

    While our cameras are clicking in anticipation of future blogs, I thought it was high time to reveal the complete official set list for the Rise of the Runelords set, complete with collector numbers and rarities.

    Read this article at the Paizo blog.

    Twenty five dollars per huge, and WotC's minis were overpriced? Wow. Just. Wow.

    I just do not like the look of most of the first set minis.

    Some gems to be sure, but not many.

    I'm just so happy I got most of my minis when DDM first came out almost 10 years ago; the prices are just so much higher these days.

    Pawns for me. No collectible BS. No high prices. And just as effective for their intended use.

    My 12 yo son actually prefers pawns over minis as well. Feels the minis look too "kiddy".

    I don't really buy just as effective. A good set of a miniatures makes it easy to keep track of who the lizardmen are and who the kobolds are and where the kobold chief is. It also can make clear where the larger creature's squares of control are. A good set of miniatures gives a sense of scale that nothing else can; it's a lot easier to visualize the colossal dragon versus the halfling when you can look at the foot tall dragon and half-inch tall halfling.

    I think JeffB is referring to the cardstock minis being put out by Paizo as well. So you still get the scale and image - just not the high cost of the minis.

    I'm buying the minis, but they are very (too?) expensive and I certainly understand people not buying them because of the cost.
    Only you can prevent forest fires. That's right - you!

    I am referring to paizos pawns like those in the beginner box, and the set coming out soon.

    I'm just waiting until you start selling life-size sculpts... at which point I'll probably start screaming and running in the opposite direction.

    Erik, what do you use in your games? Miniatures, counters or Theatre of the Mind?

    Cheers!
