Gale Force 9 Releases 2 new Air-Themed Sets for D&D

Gale Force 9 has two new air-themed sets (seems appropriate) that they have released as part of their collector series of D&D miniatures. The first is the Air Myrmidon, which is an elemental bound to a magical set of armor and used at the whims of its creator. The other is the Aerisi Kalinoth & Air Priest (who could have very likely created the aforementioned Myrmidon). This is a two-mini set. These are both limited edition sets, so if you want yours, you'd better get in on it.
