New pre-painted plastic minis from Paizo

UPDATE: Paizo staff have said this is a one time only product. It is not YET a continuing line of products. The determination on whether it will become a continuing line will be based on sales.

Thanks, Riggler! Nice find. As long as they're not too expensive this could be a great resource for customs.

Re: New pre-painted plastic minis from Paizo

WoW, I totally didn't see this one comming and it's awesome news! My only concern is will Piazo be distrubuting these or Wizkids. It matters to me because Wizkids has an exclusive with Diamond / Alliance and I absolutely hate that company. This is big enough news that I guess I would have deal with them if it came to it but I'd rather go through my existing wholesalers.

You know they're bringing MageKnight back right?

I don't need no instructions to know how to rock.

Re: New pre-painted plastic minis from Paizo

Does anyone have any idea how these figs will match up to Heroscape figs in size? Looks like there will be a lot of custom potential if the size is right.

Theoretically, they should be to scale with DnD minis as Pathfinder uses a 1" square grid.

Wizkids did get carried away and ran it into the ground. But NECA has been doing an awesome job so far. They've made OP better, the pieces are better, and the consistancy of new product is solid (mostly)

I'm just sayin.

Re: New pre-painted plastic minis from Paizo

UPDATE: I follow the Paizo threads pretty closely. Their Creative Director frequents the boards and answers just about any question people throw at him. Also, several Paizo employees frequent the board (it's actually required by the CEO). It's like their job.

Anyway, Paizo's top guys have cautioned those who got excited that this is JUST ONE non-random selection of minis. And they have stated that it is NOT at this time a full product line.
