Octavia, Half-Elf Arcane TricksterBrell Stormforge —
Great sculpt. Unfortunately the paint job was chipped and missing any paint on parts of the mini. This is the only mini that I didn't receive in my case, so I had to order a single of it. This could have easily been a five star mini, if it was missing paint, exposing bare plastic in multiple spots. Hopefully the rest of you received one that is painted properly and worthy of a higher rating. The only way for this to be presentable is if I repaint it myself, which there should be no need to do so with a prepainted mini. It is especially frustrating that it's in such horrible condition since I ordered it as a single directly from Paizo, which means that whoever packed it had to have seen it and then still decided to ship it, even with chipped missing paint. I hate to give such a nicely sculpted mini such a low rating, but considering that it actually still needs painted, I have little choice.
WerewolfBrell Stormforge —
Nice sculpt. Less nice paint job. Got three of these in my case. I wish the paint was on par with the design. The fur isn't too bad, but the bright white teeth paint is all over the gums, tongue, nose, and face. I'm not a huge fan of the blood red paint on the hands either, especially since it was applied sloppily all up the arms. Almost a nice mini, and still could be if I take the time to repaint it, not that anyone should have to repaint a prepainted miniature. It's useable, but I definitely have better werewolf minis, so it may never make it to the table, unless I need dozens of werewolves.
WeretigerBrell Stormforge —
Great sculpt. Not so great paint. I got two of these in my case. I want to like this one so much, because I like any kind of animalfolk, but the paint jobs were done very lazily. It should be an easy paint, there isn't even any gear to paint, but it looks like even though it had minimal required painting it was rushed. If they had taken just a little more time and pride in their work, it would have been great, but sadly they didn't, at least not in the two I received :(
Wererat ArcherBrell Stormforge —
Epic sculpt. Epic paint. I got three of these in my case (but I wish I had a hundred of them). I love these little guys so much. I love the design, pose, and colors of this mini. They will be extremely useful for adding to my ratfolk collection/clan. I think I'll apply a couple different slightly darker washes to two of their faces, hands, and feet, to make them look more individualized. Some of the paint on the feet is sloppy, but not too bad as to lose a star.
Web LurkerBrell Stormforge —
Nice sculpt. Nice paint job. I got four of these in my case. The sculpt and paint of this mini is pretty simple, but it's fitting for what it is, so I won't take away for that. I like the colors used for it, it's dark, but not so dark that it loses details.
Valerie, Human FighterBrell Stormforge —
Great sculpt. Almost great paint job. If the one I got looked as good as the one in the description photo, I would have given it five stars, but I have to go by the one I received. The armor and equipment were very nicely done, but that face was pretty plain, with sloppy eyes. Hopefully everyone else gets one as good as the description picture. I'd order another one, if I knew for sure that it would look that good, but it's too much of a dice roll at that price, to take the chance that I get another one that looks like mine.
Troll HoundBrell Stormforge —
Great sculpt. Pretty good paint job. I got three of these in my case. I don't know much about these guys, but they look pretty good, and tough, maybe not too smart. The paint is somewhat basic, but there's not a huge amount of detail to it, so basic is ok. If these guys are the pets of trolls, I might have made them just a little bit bigger, but I like them and see them as being a useful guardian creature.
Troll LeaderBrell Stormforge —
Epic sculpt. Almost epic paint job. Got three of these in my case. I love this mini so much! The pose, gear, and sculpt of this mini is amazing! There are some slight imperfections in the paint job, which shouldn't be there on such a large mini, but I'm not detracting for them, because they are very minor, I can touch them up if I really need to. One of the three I got had a nearly perfect paint job. Everything about this hideous creature's miniature is beautiful. Great job!!!
Tristian, Human ClericBrell Stormforge —
Epic sculpt. Great paint job. Got three of these in my case. I really like the design and colors used in its clothes and equipment. There is some imperfections in the face paint and equipment paint, but not so bad that I'll reduce a star. I can see this being a very useful mini, as either a player, or an order of priests npcs.
Swamp NagaBrell Stormforge —
Good sculpt. Good and bad paint. Got two of these in my case. The body is sculpted and painted very well, but then there's the head and face that is buried in thick sloppy paint. I'm also not a huge fan of the big fat ghoul tongue. If the face and head were as well done as the body, I'd give it four stars, but sadly they're a mess. I do like the size of this Naga, so that's a positive, often times they are made way too big, in my opinion.
Stolen Lands BanditBrell Stormforge —
Slightly above average sculpt. Slightly sloppy paint job. Got three of these in my case. I kind of like the design, and the face actually isn't painted too bad, except for using way too heavy of a wash on it that makes it look dirty. But on this one they painted the clothing and equipment pretty sloppily, with paint all over the place. Just average, not quality.
Stag LordBrell Stormforge —
Epic sculpt. Almost great paint job, but... I got three of these in my case. This could have easily been a five star mini, with an awesome design and a paint job that was so close to great, love the stance and clothing design, BUT that WizKids' sloppy face strikes once again. Still a great mini, but it could have been epic, if they had just taken the time to paint the face properly.
Soul GorgerBrell Stormforge —
Great sculpt. Not so great paint job. This could be a pretty great mini, if you got one that was painted well, the one in my case wasn't. It is a decent size, so the detail of the paint job could have easily been done better. For a rare, one per case, selling for $15 for a single mini, it definitely should have been painted better.
SmilodonBrell Stormforge —
Nice sculpt (except for the arm joint). Slightly sloppy paint job. I got two of these in my case. I like the idea and sculpt, but I really dislike when they glue parts on, like the arm in this case, and leave a huge joint line that doesn't match up or blend in, like this mini has. Also, the teeth are painted pretty sloppily with white all over the gums and even face, and teeth aren't typically bright movie star white. This is a fairly large mini, which makes it easy to paint, so there is no reason the teeth should be this sloppy.
Shadow RogueBrell Stormforge —
Nice sculpt. Average paint job. I got three of these in my case. I definitely like the design, but a somewhat messy paint job and a sloppy face really detracts from the quality. After all of these years and cases of minis, WizKids still has a lot of trouble reliably painting good faces. I don't understand the inconsistencies, because they do paint good faces on some minis, but then totally butcher the faces on others.
ScarecrowBrell Stormforge —
Awesome sculpt. Awesome paint job. Got two of these in my case, just in time for Halloween. These guys are great. I wish there was an exact copy animated version of them, just like the gargoyle miniatures. I already have some animated scarecrow minis, but an exact copy in an attacking pose would have been great. I know some players who are completely creeped out by scarecrows, so these will be perfect for making them wonder if they're just normal scarecrows, or if they'll come alive and jump on their back. If I could change anything about them, aside from wanting an animated version, I would have made the base a bit wider, with some more vegetation on it, for stability, and for making it seem even more like an ordinary scarecrow, but I'm not letting that affect my rating. (COMBAT HINT) Based upon previous experience, if you decide to offer the scarecrow a little fire, make sure you don't do that in a dried out corn field, or you'll find that you've quickly engulfed yourself in a very large fire :)
River Kingdoms RuffianBrell Stormforge —
Decent sculpt. Horrible paint job. I got three of these in my case, all of them had horrible paint jobs. This character is a neat idea with a pretty good sculpt, but is pretty much ruined by a very sloppy paint job. Too bad.
Regongar, Half-Orc MagusBrell Stormforge —
Epic sculpt. Epic paint job. I hope everyone gets this mini with a paint job as good as the one that I got. I love everything about this mini, nothing bad to say at all. So cool!
Raised Dais (not dias, silly Paizo)Brell Stormforge —
Awesome sculpt. Awesome paint job. This is a super useful piece of dressing. It works to improve the setting's looks with all thrones, podiums, magic items, portals, magic weapons, treasure chests, etc etc etc. Definitely a great enhancing addition to my dressing collection.
Pitax WardenBrell Stormforge —
Epic sculpt. Awesome paint job. I got four of these in my case, one of them was broken off of base, but easy glue fix. I really like these guys, they remind me of the Emperor's Crimson Guard, from Return of the Jedi. They have an appearance of being very tough and disciplined. If my group ever causes these guys to defend their ruler from my group, I plan on making them extremely difficult, causing my group to question if any of them will survive the encounter.
Oni MageBrell Stormforge —
Awesome sculpt. Awesome paint job. I got three of these in my case. I'm not sure where I'm going to use them in my adventures, but I'm definitely going to find a place for them, they look too awesome to not use. Hopefully they offer a tough challenge that matches their imposing looks.
NyrissaBrell Stormforge —
Great sculpt (although very fragile), Awesome paint job. This would have been an easy five star mini, it looks great, but it's crazy fragile, so I took away one star for that. The legs are so thin that even with careful transportation and handling, I'm (more likely those playing with me are) probably going to end up breaking and glueing this miniature multiple times. I really want to give it five stars, but durability is a factor with gaming minis, and they could have done something to reinforce those twig legs, maybe a clear plastic support similar to the elf ghost mini, or just made them a touch thicker.
Monitor LizardBrell Stormforge —
Decent but simple sculpt. Good but basic paint job. I got three of these in my case. It's just sort of an average basic miniature, not that that's a bad thing, sometimes you need basic, normal, non heroic minis. The paint job looks good, but there's not really much to it. I do like the colors that were used.
ManticoreBrell Stormforge —
Pretty cool sculpt. Mediocre paint job. Got three of these in my case. I mostly like the sculpt, and maybe I'm incorrect, but aren't manticores supposed to have scorpion tales? Even if they are, it's not that big of a deal. The mediocre paint job is what negatively impacted my opinion of this mini. The body is ok, not great, but ok, but the face is pretty bad. So it's pretty much the face paint that stops this one from being a really good mini.
Linzi, Halfling BardBrell Stormforge —
Great sculpt. Mostly good paint jobs. I got four of these in my case. I really want to give this five stars because I like the character and the sculpt so much, but sadly I can't because of the paint jobs. Of the four that I got, two had really good paint jobs, one had a slightly sloppy paint job, and one had a totally horrible paint job. If they all were painted as good as the two best ones I received, it would be an easy five stars, but alas it was not to be :( .
