ARCHON STUDIO ANNOUNCES PATHFINDER TERRAIN FOR ABOMINATION VAULTS!

April 26, 2022 Piła, Poland: Archon Studio has announced Pathfinder Terrain, a new product line of plastic unpainted and unassembled miniatures and environments. Each set will feature iconic places from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game by Paizo. The first release will be for the dark and grim mega-dungeon in the Abomination Vaults Adventure Path. The new dungeon is their first retail release of half-height walls, which retain full backward compatibility with the classic full-height walled sets. More releases will follow.

Abomination Vaults is one of Paizo’s most popular Pathfinder Adventures Paths in which brave heroes must venture into a dungeon full of beasts and traps to prevent a spiteful villain from rising again. Archon Studio approached the challenge of making Pathfinder Terrain for the Abomination Vaults open-minded yet focused on the lore and the story.

Archon Studio Art Director, Tomasz Badalski said, “First thing that came to my mind was the abomination angle of the design. How to make a dungeon, that clearly says “we reject all that’s natural and give ourselves to all kinds of heresy and evil rituals”? That’s why you will notice good-ol’ tentacles on the walls and evil-eyes overseeing the adventuring party. Even the metal door ornaments are looking more like veins on living, cursed organisms than a piece of engineering. How cool is that?”

“Paizo is excited to work with Archon Studio in a way to bring the excitement of the Pathfinder Abomination Vaults Adventure Path to your gaming group, and we look forward to the many future releases that will bring the world of Golarion to life,” said Jim Butler, Vice President of Marketing & Licensing at Paizo. “We can’t wait to see these dungeons take shape on your own tabletop.”

The most noticeable feature of the Pathfinder Terrain: Abomination Vaults are the half-height walls. They are designed differently than previous terrain packs to make it even easier to handle miniatures inside of the dungeon. The height of the walls is roughly 25 millimeters/1-inch. They are also much thicker than in the previous packs. Doorways are kept at 50 millimeters/2-inch height to make it easier to locate them during the game.

Also, for the first time, Archon Studio is implementing a functional door. It works using a push and fit system, you can open and rotate the door or remove it altogether from the doorway if you do not need it. Pathfinder Terrain: Abomination Vaults comes with extra set pieces to help you customize your dungeon. Columns are a perfect all-rounder when it comes to removing a single tile from the map and blocking a line of sight at the same time. A small pile of rubble works as a blockade. Some walls also include special holes in which to place torchlights.

Players can pre-order Pathfinder Terrain: Abomination Vaults on the online store or by asking for it at your favorite local gaming store.
