Pathfinder Battles is a ongoing line of pre-painted character miniatures to coincide with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Paizo Inc. partners with WizKids to create life-like miniatures from the incredible art and illustrations seen in many of the Pathfinder Adventure Paths, Bestiaries, and even core books.
Starting with the Heroes & Monsters Battle Set, Paizo releases four sizes of Battle Packs:
- Standard Boosters: These boosters contain 1-3 Small and Medium miniatures and 1 Large miniature.
- Large Boosters: Only released in the Heroes & Monsters, these boosters contain 1 Large miniature.
- Huge Boosters: Only released in the Rise of the Runelords, these boosters contain 1 Huge miniature.
- Gargantuan: Every Battle Set comes with a unique Gargantuan miniature tied to the Battle Set's theme.
In addition to individual booster packs, Paizo also sells bricks and cases of miniatures. Each brick and case contains a large, but different, number of miniatures that varies with each Battle Set.
General set list
Each Battle Pack comes with a randomized set of miniatures as to average the cost of each mold used for the Battle Set. Each miniature is of one of three levels of rarity—Common, Uncommon, or Rare—representing the abundance of each miniature in Battle Packs. A miniature labeled as Common, for instance, is more likely to be in a particular booster pack compared to an Uncommon or Rare.
The first set of pre-painted miniatures released under the Pathfinder Battles name was the Heroes & Monsters Battle Pack. Because of its profitability, Paizo decided to continue the Pathfinder Battles line with the Rise of the Runelords Battle Set. This set's popularity sparked Paizo to begin creating miniatures from each existing Adventure Path.
