A colorful collection of minis

****( )

If you use miniatures and need a lot of colorful unique NPCs or PCs for your players than this is the set for you. Based on the NPC codex book, you will find all the previous artwork and more. Some double (like the guards), many don’t. All the core races are included, as well as some animals. With these alone can build an orc army, a dwarven megaforge, an eleven city, a medieval palace or a diversified metropolis.

It’s short on obvious specific cultists though, so if you need to run through the head church of Zon-Kuthon, this will not be enough. Unless you want to go on these with a magnifying glass, there is no point in heavily distinguishing the races. You may have a hard time telling apart the halflings from the gnomes, but I didn’t care and just lobed them into one bag.

The only real gripe I have is with the punch-out quality. If you are not careful enough, the imperfect cutout can damage the token. I had to fix a dozen tokens with glue (hence the -1 star), and even more needed their edges trimmed with scissors. So take care on your first go.


A little disappointed and misrepresented.

***( )( )

Why are there no pictures featuring mounts for the Mounted Archer, Griffon Rider, Savage Rider, ext?


Exactly what I needed

*****

As an aspiring GM without the infrastructure from previously playing D&D or other mini-based games, this set was exactly what I needed to start developing a well stocked collection of pieces. Compared to minis, you get more bang for you buck with these pawns. They are cheaper, more detailed, and considerably easier to store. Durability might later be an issue but a considerable number of the pawns come with extras. The inclusion of several of the more common animal companions was also a nice touch.

While the lack of racial diversity might be a bit of an issue (outside of a few animals, this is all Core races from what I can tell), I'm going to withhold my judgement on that until I round out my collection some.


The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

****( )

So let's point out the positives in this review first.
1. If you love to play dwarves, elves, and humans (both male and female) you will want to pick up this set. I've never seen a more dwarf friendly set! Which is great for me! The multitude of elves and humans was unsurprising, so I'm not as excited.

2. If you love half-orcs, you'll be either excited or irritated, depending. Most of the half-orc npc's are male (which irritates my wife because she was looking forward to a female half-orc for her PC in Serpent's Skull). They are also mostly cast in the typical evil orc fashion. This is a bane to those who play them, but a boon to GM's who need more "orc" minis.

3. If you love halflings and gnomes, there are a few. However, they are somewhat hard to distinguish (I'll get to that later).

4. If you love half-elves, they kind of blend with elves and humans. You'll be good to use either.

5. The animal companions are represented (for the most part). This is great and I'm glad for it. While most people can just borrow from the bestiary, it was nice to have the ones that naturally don't start at a smaller size being made smaller in this set.

6. There is a mini for just about everyone.

Now with that in mind, let's get to the negatives.

1. Almost none of the titles of these pawns match the respective image. No, I don't mean they mixed them up. They were titled the same in the NPC Codex hardback too. Ignore this, if you can. I'm considering just putting the minis in order of race to eliminate this problem.

2. The pawns are indeed not fully cut like the Bestiary was. You can use pretty much any knife to solve this issue.

3. Some of the pawns are cut off at the weapon, which isn't cool. The images could have been shrank a bit more to accommodate at least a portion of them. This is glaring in the animals as well. The dog should not be bigger than the leopard. And dogs need butts too.

4. Lighting. I'm unsure if it's simply due to the shrinking of the images or poor printing, but some of these minis are quite literally black shapes with little art. This rankled me at first, but I've resolved that they have become the Dark Folk. Thus my purchase is still justified.

5. The obvious gnomes look like they are straight out of wonderland. This is not ok.

All in all, I'm glad I purchased this from amazon for about 12 dollars less. The pawns don't justify the 39.99 price tag. But for 27.99 and free shipping they do.

P.S. With all of that in mind, there is one mini that just stands out fantastically. The Knight (aristocrat npc pic) is glorious and should be used for any male human full plate warrior. They should have made more.

P.P.S. After punching them out and attempting to re-sort them into the frames it has dawned on me that not all frames are punched out in the exact same shape. So I have purchased Business Card slip sheets and they work fantastically for the large and medium pawns. The small pawns luckily will fit back in their frames (and for longevity sake, put the smooth side DOWN in the smooth from so they slide off each other instead of raking the cardboard). With that done, I have a final total

Halflings-39
Gnomes-35
Humans-168
Half-Orcs-51
Half-Elves-48
Elves-40
Dwarves-48
Animals-25

As you can see, there is a good variety for everyone. I've based these numbers on the races listed for the entries from the NPC Codex pdf.


Somewhat disappointing

***( )( )

I love pawns so I had to get this but there were a few things I found rather disappointing.

First of all some of the sheets weren't punched through all the way. So before I got the hang of removing them just so several of the pawns didn't come free cleanly. Bits of the outer coating would remain attached to the frame and peal away from the backs of the pawns. Just be very careful when removing them. I'd recommend tracing over the cut lines with an exacto knife before you damage your new pawns.

The other part that I thought was a let down is the art distribution. Individually most of the art is just fine. When I separated them out by race and gender I was in for a real let down. The half-orc and dwarf gender ratio is extremely off balance. Females are out numbered by males about four to one. Of course there's lots of elven and and half-elven women depicted. To me this is about the same as when women's magazines are full of anorexic white girls. With just the occasional chubby girl or racial minority thrown in because they feel they're forced to put some in. Ya we've managed to take a step away from the chain mail bikini but we've still got a long way to go it seems. :/
