Several years ago, when I joined the RPG business as an editor, I used to think my greatest magical power was coming up with ideas in my head that we could send to a brilliant artist like Wayne Reynolds, only to have gorgeous illustrations manifest in my hand a few weeks later, looking far better than I had ever imagined. Now that I am a publisher, my powers have increased considerably, and I am now able to manifest 3D representations of the creatures in my head and in our books in the form of Pathfinder Battles prepainted plastic miniatures.
It's like magic, and if I squint real hard and ignore the substantial contributions of Paizo's freelance writers, staff developers and editors, art staff, and brilliant freelance artists, I like to imagine it's my not-so-secret mutant power.
And now, I am ready to share the fruits of my mutant power with all of you!
The new Pathfinder Battles prepainted plastic miniatures set, The Lost Coast, is about to ship to subscribers and paizo.com preorder customers, with an official release date of ! This time around, the theme is the creatures and denizens of Varisia's Lost Coast, which is another way of saying "this set is filled to the gills with straight-up fantasy."

The mighty Shemhazian Demon is The Lost Coast's limited edition Gargantuan case-incentive figure. Fear his creepy spider appendages and terrible claws!
