Flying Frog's Black Friday sale started some time around midnight and includes extra sets of the base game red miniatures. But it also had some new information. The product descriptions often mention the OtherWorld variant monsters, but now include some variants to OtherWorlds not yet released. I noticed:

* Night Terror: Space Terror (Derelict Ship)
* Slasher: Gorged Slashers (Trederra)
* Strangler: Dark Stranglers (Derelict Ship)

Anybody notice any other new hints?

i noticed they are all kinda pricey , i'm gonna end up making my own corpse markers , $15 for 2 is just way too much . same thing with the targa pylons .

i had expected the pylons to come out as a terrain pack like the portals did . but selling them seperatly without cards is too high for my price range .

The Pylons and I assume dead piles are eventually going to be released in plastic (they have shown the plastic versions of the pylons on the KS page). These are just limited edition resin versions. I do like the look of the 3d darkness track though, although way too expensive for me.

Could you please provide a link to where the information on these new other world monsters is? I couldn't find this info anywhere.

You have to look at the individual red minis. It describes possible uses for the extra set.

ya , but i am still astounded by the prices . and all the "red" plastic figs are WAY over priced too .

if anyone is wanting the figures and such , i still have some in the sets i will be ordering , and i am asking well less for the figures WITH cards than FF is asking for for JUST the red plastic minis .

The prices are comparable to other miniatures like Reaper, Black Scorpion, ect. The Black Friday promotions are pretty sweet too!

except that the miniatures lines like reaper , black scorpion , etc ...... look better , are genrally easier to assemble , and require a lot less gap filling and cleanup .

Comparing the sets of miniatures to just buying another box, it seems to me that they're more aimed at people who just want to get a sprue of X extra figures (for variant paint schemes or to be able to 'field' a pile more of them).

If I wanted a full set of extra enemies, there's the option to just buy another box ($60 vs $100, but getting another set of tiles/dice/booklets/etc). If I wanted 24 or 36 more void spiders, it'd be much cheaper to buy a couple sprue sets.

I'm glad they've provided the option. At least if someone loses their Harbinger or a couple of Slashers in a move they won't have to buy a full box to replace it.
