for some reason the art reminds me of Pokemon(Elder Water Elemental I CHOOSE YOU!)
It's because of the three sizes, I imagine. Conjures up mental images of Pokemon with three stages of evolution.
These are cool. GRRR! I want this product but I want access to everything in the bestiary 1 in this format and in a format so I can make as many of the pawns of a given creature that I want.
I have already been scanning the pictures from the bestiary and using them as counters but the full-body pawns are very nice indeed.
Curious- is the 300 token count just individual monsters, or will there be multiple monster tokens for certain creatures?
I can't recall how many monsters were in the first Bestiary, but it would be nice to have more than one orc, token, for instance, so that you could represent at least a few of them in combat at the same time.
EDIT: Just noticed the breakdown of the tokens on the product page. It only goes to 256, so I'm guessing there are some duplicates, then.
So these are basically the same concept as Steve Jackson's old Cardboard Heroes? (Not a complaint, I have fond memories of those things.)
OMG Best elemental atwork EVER!
Good choice giving these new artwork cuz the previous artwork was really not my taste
I hope the following monsters from the box get new artwork too:
Winter Wolf/Worg (I hope you use winter wolf art for these)
Ankheg - Giant Ant - BARGHEST!! - Dire Bear - Bebilith - Beetles - Behir - Black Pudding - Bugbear - Cloaker - Couatl - Cyclops - BABAU!! - Balor - HEZROU!!! - MARILITH!! - Vrock (the colours are horrible) - Gelugon (less fat) - Devourer - Doppelganger - Duergar - ETTIN!! - Gargoyle - Cloud Giant - Fire Giant - Frost Giant - Storm Giant - Ice Golem - Hobgoblin - Werewolf - Giant Mantis - Mephit - MINOTAUR!! - Mohrg - Mummy - Dark Naga - NIGHTMARE!!!! (but without rider) - Remorhaz - Salamander - Shambling Mound - Violet Fungus - Will o Wisp - Xill - YELLOW MUSK CREEPER!!
Saving time and money are both reasons I want to get this but there's also a third sort of savings they forgot to mention. This will save a lot of weight & space. Transporting a whole miniature collection to and from where you game is a hassle. Not everyone can run their games at home after all. With pawns you can fit a whole mess of monsters in one easily transportable box. :)
