Paizo Posts Starfinder Battles: Planets of Peril Preview

PPPPPP. What a headline. Anyway, Paizo and WizKids are coming out with new Starfinder minis next month. Look, there's an armored bear carrying a giant hammer! Instantly love the set. 10/10.

From the post:

Starfinder Battles: Planets of Peril releases next month, and we’re well into our exploration of what strange aliens you can find in every booster box. Last week we looked at the set’s starships, including three vesk models, so let’s look at some of the creatures from the Veskarium you can find in the set.

The Pahtra Stalker we revealed two weeks ago makes its home on Vesk-6, while the helpful Skittermander (Small common) and the decidedly less helpful Stridermander (Medium uncommon) hail from Vesk-3. Skittermanders are known for their bright colors, and we knew we couldn’t get away with making just one. But the set only had so many slots and we didn’t want to take up too many of them with a single alien species, even one as popular as skittermanders. The solution, at least for now, is in alternate-paint promos, of which we made two. We’ll have more information in the future about how you can get your six hands on these little guys. In future sets, if we have alternate-paint figures built into the main set, skittermanders will likely make a reappearance there.
