Green Ronin's Advanced Bestiary for Pathfinder


Recommended Posts




Basically, Green Ronin published the Advanced books near the latter half of D&D 3.5. Their Advanced Bestiary was highly praised for basically being a book about templates. Pizo still uses it in many of their story paths. Now they feel the time is right to go ahead and update the book fully to Pathfinder rules.


Pros: This is the Advanced Bestiary, and it has already reached it's funding goal.


Cons: I'll go ahead and acknowledge the only con that I can see, Green Ronin's new Freeport book still isn't out as of yet, from their last Kickstarter. As far as I can tell it's won't be out until sometime next year.

I took a gamble on it. I probably would have passed if they hadn't had the Hero Lab software as part of it. With that, it became worth it to me. Now I'll just blissfully forget about it and be pleasantly surprised when it shows up sometime in the future.

Not really for me (I have the original 3E one and never had any problems using it with my Pathfinder game) but I am glad they will finally make some damn money on that book! One of the best, most creative and just plain useful books produced in the 3E era.

Funnier still is that I found out about Reaper through Fat Dragon Games products. Almost all of Tom's pictures of his models feature Reaper miniatures.


I really had no idea what I was going to use my Dragonshire or EZ dungeons sets with till I backed the second bones Kickstarter. I was broke when the first one ended, but I did know about it.


Back on topic, I really love Green Ronin's products and have backed all three of their Kickstarters. I have no Doubts that the Freeport book will be brilliant when it comes in a few months and have heard nothing but good things about the original Advanced Bestiary. That said I am glad that we achieved all of the stretch goals to make this one even better.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
