Although it looks better for most people like this I like the variety. The loss of 10 mini's is really sad. I'll be honest I've been thinking it's getting to expensive as is. This may be my excuse to start using pawns more.
It's better for me to buy a couple bricks at my local FNGS than a case at this point and blend them. I can't afford to keep up.
This would be (for me) the most anticipated set they would/could make! I really, really hope they do make a Reign of Winter set. I can't think of anything better. A Baba Yaga hut miniature would be absolutely fabulous!
Love the illustrations and content but I have to admit I hate the new format.
It looks to me to look more "remedial". It uses a block entry type of layout which I really dislike. The type seems larger and less "book" and more "game".
So congrats and smiles :) on two well crafted counts but :( totally on the format.
