Return to form

****( )

Looks like the battles line has overcome the QC issues. This set was very impressive. The sculpts are mostly very well done, but as you would expect some I like some I don't. However the paint jobs on these are a big A+. Every mini I pulled was consistently good, well painted faces with easy to make out details. I received a full set and had no incidence of breakages in the cases. In fact out of two cases I received one lone mini that was sitting a little bent on its base (the skinny elf archer)

My biggest gripe is the insistence on using long polearm like weapons that inevitable develop a floppy look. It's messy and ruins the overall aesthetic of the mini wielding them.

The highlight for me is the leaping Boggard. Love it. Great detail, interesting sculpt.

Overall a great set that had me buying two cases, something I haven't done since the shattered star set.

Thoroughly unexpected triumph

*****

I have never been a big fan of the metallic dragons in miniature form. The opportunities to use them just don't seem to come up all that often and they lack the wow factor of the chromatics. Which is why this one came as such a surprise when I pulled it form its booster. This mini if simply fantastic. Firstly it is very large indeed but with almost no overhang. The detail is great with deep sculpt features. The real triumph is the colouring. The use of the green to highlight the bronze, and the green shading for verdigris makes this mini really pop. I now find myself looking for ways to incorporate this into my game, perhaps a vampiric dragon, maybe a possessed one. Either way I feel the need to drop this on the table and wow my friends.

Amazing Niche Miniature

*****

I'm not sure when, or even if, I would even use this miniature but wow! Is it ever an awesome miniature. The colours are beautifully blended, the detail is great and the use of the transparent plastic for the fire and frost kukri she wields is fantastic. Despite the obscure use for this mini I still fell I can rate it as a 5 star effort simply because it is extremely well done.

OK, doesn't sit well with previous fire giant

**( )( )( )

I kind of like this mini, certainly not loving it, but I do like it. It's a solid sculpt and a nice paint job on the 3 I pulled. Unfortunately for me there are several issues.

Firstly the colour scheme doesn't match with the previous shattered star fire giant. That one had some great brown and bronze flesh tones, this is a little too orange and flat. While the use of transparent plastic is usually a winner with me this time it doesn't quite gel. I think it s more the flat red skin tones that sit alongside the fire. And that crown? Why yellow and not actually gold?

Secondly the axe suffers form a pet personal peeve (like the alliteration?) of mine, floppy weapon syndrome. Not one of mine came with an axe that wasn't bent into a half circle! Grrrr. I also find the orange colouring off putting, a metal head or haft would have created some contrast and made it look less cartoony.

Thirdly its a fire giant king but I now have three?

Overall not a bad mini, not a great mini. I was hoping it would match the previous giant better. Paizo have been so good at matching the sets until now.

Brain stealing awesomeness of the plastic kind

*****

Wow, just wow. This is one of the best prepainted minis I have seen in a long time. Fantastic sculpt with some incredible detail, especially the tiny brains in every bubble on its back. Very well painted. This is what a prepainted miniature should be. If I had one criticism it would be that the clear post appears and feels quite fragile. I am yet to break one, and I am far from gentle with my minis, but it has that feel.
