A great sculpt, but very prone to breaking off the base!

***( )( )

GOOD:
I have been waiting for a Girtabilu miniature since "Strange Aeons" book 5 has been released. The sculpt is great and everything but the slightly bendy weapon is sturdy enough.
The color scheme is simple but fitting.
This being an uncommon means getting three to four in a case, i have gotten three in three bricks.

BAD:
The weapon could be more stable.

UGLY:
One of the three minis i got broke off at the base of the clear pole which holds the mini on the base.
It is able to stand without a base, but it is only a matter of time before the two others will break off if i am not very very careful.

A great mini for a female fighter or paladin.

****( )

GOOD:
The actual mini looks better than the picture.
A good sculpt and paintscheme with lots of colors.

BAD:
The weapon is only slightly bendy on most minis, which is pretty much the only thing that prevents this mini from receiving 5 stars.

UGLY:
Nothing.

The only stinker of the set!

*( )( )( )( )

GOOD:
Nothing.

BAD:
Everything.

UGLY:
The sculpt is lazy, the paintjob is really bad - especially the face, the color scheme doesn´t work - especially the black, the double sword is not only bendy, but also both blades are connected by a thin plastic piece, yet twisted in different directions.
Not a single of the four minis i have seen looks acceptable.

Finally this CR 6 Bestiary creature gets a mini!

****( )

GOOD:
The Kyton has long been missing from the Pathfinder Battles line.
There have been two rare versions from the D&D line, but now we have a COMMON one!
I got four in three bricks and i love the fact that the faces are all painted differently, yet none looks bad.
The three color paintjob is simple, yet the blue color is popping on the battle-map.

BAD:
The pose is pretty distinct and not suited for combat perfectly.

UGLY:
Nothing.

Perfect mini for an evil cleric!

****( )

GOOD:
Simple, yet good sculpt and paintjob, especially on the mask.
The mace is so short and thick that it isn´t in danger of being bendy.
I got three in three bricks.

BAD:
Nothing.

UGLY:
Nothing.

Roughly one third is printed so dark that you can hardly see it!

Both sides are very useful and offer lots of possibilities!

*****

GOOD:
Both sides offer lots of rooms, corridors and features which immedeately inspire in-game uses.

BAD:
Nothing.

UGLY:
Nothing.

This is how a Starfinder map should look. Great design and execution!

One of the better Starship mats

***( )( )

GOOD:
The damaged science vessel hulk looks really good.
I can really see players exploring it.
There are now black lines in space, which allows space battles outside the starship interior!

BAD:
The black lines in space are very hard to see, even in bright light.
The freighter starship has three very cramped cargo holds, but very luxurous sleeping quarters. It's engine section is bigger than two of the cargo holds combined. The round front section design also offers a very limited space for play.

UGLY:
Too much black space (with black squares) on a limited size map is not a good investment.
Real life starships, like submarines are designed for efficiency, not luxury. These maps should offer 90% usable squares and not just look good.

3.5 stars - very little survival horror, colorful afterlife characters.

***( )( )

GOOD:
Part 1 does a good job of bringing over the "awaking bodily in the afterlife" feeling.
Part 4 is a good example of "fighting your way out of the clutches of death & has a great map.
All three articles are well done & useful.
Angheuvore mortics have a great backstory.

BAD:
Part 3 with lots of fey & vermin doesn't feel right in the realm of the dead.

UGLY:
The adventure path is advertised as "survival horror", but at least this book has very little of that.

While this adventure isn't bad in any way, it isn't a strong opening either.

Better paintjobs than the Corpse Fleet pack!

****( )

GOOD:
-Very sturdy, easily survive a fall from the table or higher.
-Good sculpts.
-Great paintjob on the "Ringworks Wanderer" (the small yellow shuttle).
The "Kevolari Venture" (large red starship) also looks good.
The third huge ship has a mediocre paintjob.

BAD:
-Unless with the prototypes, the elevation is the same for all three starships so that only the small one does fit in the hex before the larger starships.
-There are just stickers under the hex-bases with the names on them.

UGLY:
-The suggested retail price is way too high - $12 for one ship is ridiculous.
-You'll want more of the small ship.
-You have to rip open the package to get at the minis.

If you can get them cheaper than srp or if you are a collector, they are totally worth it!

Good minis - 15 months too late!

***( )( )

GOOD:
-Very sturdy, easily survive a fall from the table or higher.
-Good sculpts.
-Acceptable Paintjobs: white paint with black shading on translucent red plastic.

BAD:
-Unless with the prototypes, the elevation is the same for all three starships so that the small ones don't fit in the hex before the gargantuan "Omenbringer".
-There are just stickers under the hex-bases with the names on them.

UGLY:
-The suggested retail price is way too high - $12 for one ship is ridiculous.
-You'll want more of the small ships.

These really evoke the feeling of the Azlant Star Empire!

*****

Got these yesterday & love them.
Much nicer design than the Dead Suns dice, which are good too.


Our Price: $69.98

Unavailable

Could be better.

***( )( )

GOOD:
The sculpt of the Earth Elemental is great.
The paintjob of the Water Elemental is pretty cool with silouettes of drowning people and submerged debris painted on the inside of the see-through body.

BAD:
The paintjob of the Earth Elemental is totally different from the Earth Elementals that came before. It looks like a different kind of creature.

UGLY:
The sculpt of the Water Elemental is horribly out of place. Let's be clear, i have no problems with naked or sexy minis, but the boobs and strange face seem just wrong on an elemental.
It looks more like a creature from the Cthulhu Mythos and would be okay for such a setting, if painted differently.

THE PERFECT STARFINDER ADVENTURE!

*****

GOOD:
The developers & Ron Lundeen seem to have thought about everything the players could do in this perfect little gem. The adventure reads like a great mix between railroad & sandbox. Everything is structured perfectly, every character theme gets a different reason for being on the mission. The bad guys act really believable and as logical as a military unit would. Nakondis is a colony that seems to be real enough to exist somewhere in the Vast of space.
The amount of information about the Azlanti space empire in this book alone would suffice to build a campaign in their empire.

BAD:
The fact that a lot of things can only reasonably achieved if

:
the characters kill Azlanti soldiers and use their armor to impersonate them
should have been advertized in a players guide, as it makes chosing certain races like Ysoki, Vesk or Kasatha less ideal than humans, androids or lashunta.
It is possible to play those, but some things won't work.

UGLY:
Having no dice from Q-works yet and seemingly having to wait until march 2019 for the pawns.

The first "short AP" begins so great, that i am curious if the other parts can keep up. There are no lenghts in this volume, it reads like a 90 minutes nonstop action movie!

Gives you 99% of the needed creatures & starships for Dead Suns!

****( )

GOOD:
Most pawns are bright enough & have minimal cut-off.
Some creatures without full-body (or any) art get pawns.
All playable alien races get 1 pawn each.
Gargantuan, colossal & super-colossal starships get large pawns.

BAD:
You get 3 baykoks, but need only 2.
You get 2 (huge) Jubsnuths, but need only 1.
You get 3 (huge) Skyfishers, but need only 1!
Tiny & small starships are still printed on medium pawns instead of small ones.
Huge starships are printed on large pawns instead of medium ones.

UGLY:
There are no Ellicoth pawns, as Paizo makes no gargantuan pawns, but you'll need 3 of them!

I can recommend this set to anyone gamemastering the Dead Suns Adventure Path, as it makes playing it much more fun, even if it's not perfect.

Finally we have 5 Pocket Edition Bestiaries!

*****

GOOD:
The fact that i don't have to carry 5 hardcover bestiaries around anymore is great!
The price is unbeatable for a full-color collection of monsters & creatures!
These are also very durable.

BAD: Having to wait until 2019 for Bestiary 6 Pocket Edition. ;-)

UGLY: Absolutely nothing.

Perfect four-pack of totally different maps!

*****

Two dungeons, one "normal", one more fantastic.
Two outdoor ruins, one just walls besides a lake, one an old church with small graveyard.

The colors are fantastic, all maps have a good re-use value.

BETTER THAN THE HARDCOVER!

*****

GOOD:
Very convenient for traveling GMs, this pocket version is actually able to stay open flat anywhere from Achaierai to Juju Zombie, if you make use of the crease lines.
The statistics are easy enough to read and the pictures are still the same great full color quality.
The price is ridiculessly cheap for the number of monsters (285 different ones) it contains on 320 pages.
This is much better than the Core Rulebook pocket edition, because it is not as thick - perfect size!
The best thing: Bestiary 3-5 pocket editions are already announced!
BAD:
No Bestiary 6 PE announcement yet! ;-)
UGLY: Nothing.

Another good sculpt ruined by a bad paintjob.

***( )( )

GOOD:
A female elf caster in green robes is a very much needed mini.
The sculpt is great with the long leather boots, pouches and belts.
Also the hairdo and the prominent ears give this mini a definite elven look.

BAD:
The robes are ruined by the apliance of a dark wash, which let´s the clothing appear dirty. Compare it to the computer render, which has a much cleaner and crisper look and you know what i mean.
The wand she is holding should also be another color than the same as the dress.

UGLY:
Unfortunately the face is ruined by eyes which are painted besides the eye slots and orange-red haircolor which spilled onto the face.

A nice mini, despite looking a little silly.

****( )

GOOD:
The paintjob and details on this mini look actually pretty good.
The colors are garish, but that´s how Tengus supposedly like to dress.
The mini actually looks better than on the picture shown.

BAD:
The pose and outfit is the only thing preventing this mini from 5 stars.
The crossbow being fired blind to it´s back and the pirate swashbuckler look limit the usability of this second Pathfinder Tengu, as the first one in the "Skull & Shackles" set already was a pirate with two weapons.

UGLY:
Nothing.

Bendy sword and bad paintjob.

***( )( )

GOOD:
The sculpt is pretty good, with the wings feathers been recognizable and the mini doesn´t tip over easily with the new clear base connection instead of the thin poles being a definite improvement.

BAD:
The bendy sword is a nuisance. I could cut it away, but that would take away from the minis pose.
The paintjob is very basic and in some places sloppy.

UGLY:
This is another example of a rare mini being ruined by a bad paintjob.
The bendy weapons are always a terrible thing imo.

Didn´t translate well from the art to the final mini.

**( )( )( )

GOOD:
The sculpt seems pretty detailed. I think that the mini is 100% clear under the paintjob.

BAD:
The paintjob is very sloppy and ruins most details.

UGLY:
This mini continues the trend from the last two sets, that the common and uncommon minis look to be better painted than the rare ones.

Solid, if a little on the small side.

***( )( )

GOOD:
Sculpt and coloring are pretty basic, but servicable.

BAD:
This mini seems a little small for a 14 foot lenght creature, even if it´s coiled. Making the heads a little larger, like in the artwork on page 25 of Bestiary 2 would probably have sufficed to make it look more impressive.

UGLY:
Nothing.

Looks like a comical anime bug.

*( )( )( )( )

GOOD:
Nothing, sadly.

BAD:
Everything from the pose, over the skinny frame leaning awkwardly backwards with a bendy weapon and a seemingly debile smile, to the wrong coloring is awkward about this mini.
This looks nothing like the great artwork on page 77 of the Bestiary.

UGLY:
Comes loose from the base easily.

Much too small!

**( )( )( )

GOOD:
This is the 4th drake to get the PPM treatment after the Frost Drake & Rift Drake from Wrath of the Righteous and the Forest Drake from The Lost Coast sets. Coloring and sculpt are pretty good.

BAD:
This is the smalles of the Drake minis, almost medium in size. The description in Bestiary 2 places it at 14 feet long, which should make it only slightly smaller than the Frost Drake mini at 16 feet lenght (The Forest Drake mini is much too large for it´s supposed 10 feet).

UGLY:
Nothing.
