Terrible Lizardfolk

1/5

The sculpt is bad. The face looks awful, not lizard-like at all; more like a weird duck. The stance makes the miniature feel too flat. The colors are off and could use a good black wash. It looks like the lizardfolk is wielding the trident as a club rather than a piercing weapon.


Odd pose, but very detailed

4/5

Since I was playing a lizardfolk character (starting with the Beginner Box, which doesn't have a lizardfolk pawn), I decided to get this to use in game. It's served me pretty well, but it's not perfect.

The first thing that struck me is how detailed the paint job and sculpt are. The way his (or her) tail twists behind him, the scales on his arms...very well done. The pose is less impressive, as (as several reviewers have pointed out) he's holding the trident the wrong way to do damage with it. Also, the blue lips are a little too bright, and bring to mind Damodar from the D&D movie.

The main problem I have with it is that it feels a little too fragile. This is a very skinny lizard man, and I'm always concerned I might break him by mistake; unlike some of the miniatures I've seen that have stockier sculpts. In fact, when I got him, his leg had disconnected from the base, but it's nothing that careful use of superglue won't fix.

In my case, this was just the right mini to fit the niche I had (though I would have preferred a 'normal' lizardfolk to the Champion). For the price, the quality is nice, and the few shortcomings didn't break the deal for me.




5/5


Not terrible, but no standout

3/5

Honestly, this one is an odd duck, and not all that interesting either to look at or to write about, but here goes.

The sculpt isn't stellar. The pose is static and dull, and the trident is held in a confusing way -- with two hands in spite of being a one-handed weapon, and the wrong way round to do any damage with it -- thus giving the whole thing an awkward cast. The level if detail in the cast is good, however, especially in the face, which has a nicely gaping maw.

The paint job is actually very good, with different greens used to good effect and the browns of the equipment providing nice contrast. The blue lips, however, are just odd and distracting -- my first impression when taking this out of the box was, "There's a blue-lipped weirdo who doesn't know how to handle his weapon."

Unfortunately, this is a very average figure, and unless you're a completist or find yourself in need of a lot of lizardmen, I'd give it a miss.
