Paizo Shows Off Pathfinder Battles Heroes and Monsters Figures – Human Ranger and Ettin

No Comment 2429 Views

Paizo has been working hard on their new Pathfinder Battles: Heroes & Monsters base set and doing a lot of sculpting on the figures. They’ve showed some off now in the blog and have some physical sculptures of the Ettin and Human Ranger. Check out the images below.


Below you can see the green (a sculpture of modeling clay which used to be green epoxy putty) of the tallest miniature in the Heroes & Monsters set, the two-headed Ettin. The pose is an amalgamation of a black-and-white ettin image from a Pathfinder’s Journal fiction piece and the ettin entry in the Pathfinder RPG Bestiary.

Once a sculpt has been approved, WizKids technicians use the green (that’s the modeling clay sculpture above) to form the basis of the mold from which the entire production run will come. At about the same time this is being done, painters must determine what the final paint job of the miniature will look like. In the case of digital sculpts, general paint guides come with the sculpt itself. In the case of traditional sculpts, however, the artists must interpret colors from the original art, and take their best shot at how they think the final colors should look.

Just this week, WizKids sent over the proposed paint deco specs for the Ettin, which looked like this:

So the Ettin went very smoothly, transitioning from art to green to mold to paint deco with virtually no hitches.

Here is a look at the Human Ranger for the set.
