Stands with the best of the line

*****

Criticisms of the packaging and the spear both have their basis: the packaging takes care and effort to remove, and is not suitable for keeping or displaying. And it is annoying that the spear's plastic is so bendable that it won't stay straight. I will admit I don't really care about the first issue.

However, the spear is not the deciding issue for me. There are larger considerations: the sculpt, painting, and conception of these two monsters is so strong that they are worthy to stand among the best miniatures of this size in the line. Not to mention, frankly, that we really needed a giant worm.

Rating the Mini itself.

*****

"Almost Perfect," captures my judgment of this miniature as well. The sculpt is very good and the paint job well done. This dragon has a lot of personality and fine details. I am impressed with how much closer this is to MacFarland dragons quality than gaming miniature dragons quality. I look forward to using and reusing this miniature in my gaming future.

I sympathize with the complaints about packaging and broken dragons (mine arrived with a broken horn that I super-glued), but aside from these issues, this miniature is hard to beat, even if you are not a subscriber.

Caution should be taken in assembling the wings and tail. The tail in particular caused me anxiety, but taking my time and applying careful force with support, all ended well.

Too Much Hate for a Fun Read

****( )

This is an enjoyable tale that just doesn't deserve the hate it's getting. I frankly am amazed that the non-traditional choice of tense (this is happening in other novels, people. Get out more often.) is alone to blame. To say that the characters are shallow is just misleading. Shallow compared to Henry James, sure, but not shallow for the genre at all. While I'm tempted to give it 5 stars just to undo some of the extreme (and in at least one case, clearly unfair) reviews, I will give it an honest four. Which, I hope I don't need to remind people, is a good rating. Give Laws' Gambit a chance, reader, and set off on a rompy heist that stays abyssal incursion.

BANG!

*****

That's how the Pathfinder Tales series has started out. I knew I liked the characters of Count Jeggare and Radovan, and I was looking forward to how Gross might develop them based on comments traded online, but he surpassed my hopes and his earlier stories. Prince of Wolves gripped me: it's well-written and is full of fun riffs on the genre that don't descend into the stale or the silly, as they so easily can. The friends and foes are painted darkly enough that in the case of most of them, one does not stop guessing which is which. Good uses of twists keep the reader on plot but off-balance. If you're shy of Gaming fiction, there is no need for you to be in this case. I read this after reading Hugh Cook and Fritz Leiber, and while reading Neal Stephenson. Gross (and the editors) more than hold up in good company. This deserves to be read by fans of Golarion and folks who can't tell Ustalav from Cheliax.
