Paizo Starfinder Mini’s under new license with Archon Studios

Thu, 07/25/2019 - 21:42


Archon Studio to fulfill Kickstarter backer rewards

REDMOND, WASHINGTON (July 25, 2019): Today, Paizo announced that Archon Studio will be taking over the license for Starfinder Masterclass miniatures, formerly produced by Ninja Division. As part of the agreement, Archon Studio will fulfill backer rewards for the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Kickstarter.

“Thanks for all of your patience as we worked with Ninja Division and Archon Studio to get this done. We’re looking forward to some epic minis!” said Paizo VP of Marketing and Licensing Jim Butler.

“We’re excited to work with Paizo to bring the Alien Archives of the Starfinder universe to life on your tabletop,” said Archon Studio CEO Jarek Ewertowski. “We can’t wait to leap into the adventure with you!”

Archon Studio will be producing plastic miniatures instead of resin. They will also be starting over with Kickstarter fulfillment; this means that backers who have already received resin miniatures from Ninja Division will receive those minis again from Archon Studio, this time in plastic.

Archon Studio will also be creating all-new Starfinder Masterclass miniatures. Each month, they plan to produce 4 or 5 of the minis announced during the Kickstarter plus 1 brand-new mini. These minis will be available for sale at your favorite local game store, on, and on (The Kickstarter-exclusive miniatures of Candy, Cola, Seelah the Paladin, and Epic Obazaya will not be available at retail.)

Archon Studio plans to ship Kickstarter rewards in waves. Approximately every 6 months, the pledge rewards produced during the previous 6 months will be shipped to backers free of charge. Additionally, any time a Kickstarter backer purchases any Starfinder mini from Archon Studio—whether that’s a new mini or a duplicate of a Kickstarter mini—they will also ship any released Kickstarter miniatures due to that backer for no additional charge. Details of which minis are shipping when, and how to purchase other miniatures, will be posted on the Kickstarter page.

Archon Studio will be fulfilling backers in Europe, and Ninja Division will be shipping to the rest of the world. Paizo does not have specific answers to fulfillment questions: if you’re a backer with a question about your order, you’ll need to post the question to the Starfinder Masterclass Kickstarter page.

Role-Play Rambling 4.1: Final Thoughts Pathfinder Playtest

Tue, 07/23/2019 - 23:26

In the first episode of season 4 on Role-Play Ramblings Matt shares his final thoughts on the Pathfinder Playtest. He shares where he had hiccups in the playtest and what he liked about it.


Click here to view the video on YouTube.

What I didn’t mention in the video is that every player I’m playing with is sold on the game and have preordered the core book. My two boys were so fired up that I now have a full blown campaign based on the creation of their characters. I have never based an entire story on the how the players worked together during character creation that is just out of this world.

I didn’t go into spells that much either, but my players love the way the work and Joshua  – who always plays a Rogue – has made ten spell casters since the start of the playtest!

Move over Jesse James, Billy the Kid and his gang of gunmen have arrived.

Billy the Kid is the leader of a like-minded gang known as The Regulators, who tread a curious line between notoriety and legitimacy. This is down to desperate Marshals who can turn to this gang of gunmen for their skill and experience in times of need.

These Outlaws frequently partake in criminal activities including, but in no way limited to, bank and stage robberies, street brawls and on occasion, simply ‘settling an argument’…

Pre-order The Regulators Posse from today!
