Already primed sounds great until you realize it means "dipped in primer straight off the production line, flash, mold lines, and assembly errors included at no extra charge".  There's also no price r

Hey there, Justin from WizKids, just popping in to clarify a few things.   1:  The reason a company releases a line as a collectible has more to do with the tooling model, cost per mini and

I picked up a copy of the Nozur's Treant last month. It's pretty big. The level of detail, as with all their models, is mushier in real life than in the computer renders they show in the ads, but as w

I am really liking their scenery pieces - picked up another gibbet and another cage.

 

For the next time I run a pirate game, ::):

 

Comparing the WizKids foundry in the original Townspeople set to the Mantic foundry in the Terrain Crate line... I have a very hard time picking a favorite - they are nothing alike.

The Mantic foundry (available separately as well in a bigger set) -

Both are really nice.

 

But dissimilar enough that I think the best answer for which to get is 'both'. And each has bits that the other lacks.

 

Oh, and the WizKids one lights up... Nice, but not sure how useful?

My weekly players at the FLGS loved it when I turned that forge on & placed it on the battlemap.

I am SOO tempted to get the Nolzur's treant.

 

Just so I can use the Contrast wood color on it. ::(:

 

I think the stuff contains crack or something, because that one color is addictive.

I think I want to see if I can do a good fire effect, make a BURNING treant ghost.

I love the fact he has more then 2 arms, counts for the branches, being natural. That figure has shown up multiple times in my weekly FLGS games. Oddly always a bad guy, never a CG treant.....ok then.

I haven't gotten many of the new releases. Of the ones I got, the male Firbolg druids, Harpy & Arakocra are pretty nice. I also snagged the beholder zombie and Deep Cuts hobgoblins but haven't taken a close look at them yet. The hobgoblins are smaller than I expected. Kind of digging their poses and flat heads though.

Those... look a lot like human sized goblins, not so much like hobgoblins. (Not saying bad - at all. I really like the, but as 'giant' goblins more than as hobgoblins.)

 

For some reason, I have always pictured D&D/Pathfinder hobgoblins as more like Mongols. Even back in the OD&D days.

 

Traditional hobgoblins, on the other hand, look more like brownies. ::P:

They basically changed hobbies in 2e to grey human-sized goblins now.

Most people don't care for the change, I didn't mind the 1e version of them but then again, I'm kinda classic when it comes to hobbies in that mine are the red skinned, males have the blue nose & are Oriental in attire & military in nature.
