I am so excited about this announcement! As a lover of prepainted miniatures I cannot tell you how wonderful this is! In what has to be one of the best things that Paizo ever did they are coming together with WizKids to keep up the range! Remember, the difference between truth and make believe is in your imagination.
"Paizo Publishing and WizKids Games announce a new partnership whereby WizKids Games will produce a special set of pre-painted plastic miniatures for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Beginner Box, an introductory boxed set slated to release in October 2011.
“We’re excited to bring the Pathfinder property to life via 3-D pre-painted fantasy miniatures” said Lax Chandra, President of WizKids Games, "Paizo’s Pathfinder RPG has emerged as a leader in the RPG category and we are looking forward to working with their great brand.”"
