Too Bland

1/5

There is nothing exciting about this miniature. It is an awkward sculpt and the paint job is solid gray. It almost looks like it is not painted at all.


I could use an unpainted metal mini just as easily

1/5

Not all rock is slate gray. The figure is okay but the coloring is like something out of a black and white B movie.


2/5

I'm not sure what other people are seeing when they look at the gargoyle mini, but mine looks like someone held the base and dipped it in gray paint, nothing more, nothing less...BORING!!!! I get he's made of stone, I've never seen stone that is one monotone shade of gray in my life.

Pose wise, only reason he's even getting 2 stars, as the pose is decent, but the paint job ruins this miniature.




It sneaks up on you

4/5

My first impression when opening this one was neutral-to-negative. I liked the pose, but the paint job was underwhelming at initial glance. However, I looked at it more and changed my mind. Here's why:

The pose is interesting and open, looking like he's just landed and is coming after you. It's a nice change from how gargoyles are often portrayed -- scrunched up in a crouch -- so you can really see his height. Like most of the Battles like, there's good heft and weight to it; it feels solid and well made. The horns are long, evocative, and an excellent touch, and I liked the face a lot. The claws look like ripper-shredders, and can definitely give your players pause when looking at them (claws...pause (paws)...see what I did there? I'm sooooooooo clever! Oh wait, no I'm not).

The paint job has good and bad elements, I will admit. It lacks in "oomph," and can seem close to monotone when put on a table amid other minis. However, when viewed closely, there is considerable subtle variation -- it's when held up to the light that this piece really shines. And, after all, the gargoyle is a stealth ambusher, so it should look pretty much this way; a higher-contrast paint job would be out of place. In the end, I have to say I really appreciate the paint job here.

It should be pointed out that my rating for this figure comes from picking it up as a random; for that, it's a very good value. I wouldn't pay $12 for it, however. If I needed a gargoyle mini specifically, I'd go with the Reaper one Joe Kushner linked to in his review. The Battles one is better IMO, but it's not twice as good for a niche monster.
