A while back Wizards of the Coast decided to discontinue production on their line of pre-painted plastic miniatures. A lot of people, including me, were disappointed at this. Though I don't play 4e, their minis were still really cool, durable, and best of all painted (I can't paint a mini to save my life!).
I just received word that Paizo has teamed with WizKids have teamed up to fill the void. This is good news, and not just for fans of Pathfinder. This is good news for everyone who likes to use miniatures in their games but can't paint, likes cheap minis, and doesn't want to worry about damaging a fragile pewter figure. T
he teamup is also something to be excited about. Paizo has been offering quality products for a few years now and has built up quite a reputation in the gaming community. Most people know WizKids for their miniature games like HeroClix and Mage Knight. With the two working together this line seems destined to be a quality product.
The new miniatures will be available fourth quarter of this year.
