Great paints and sculpts....scuplts don't hold up well under shipping

3/5

Great looking as always, these miniatures are extraordinary.

I'll be a cautious buyer in the future, I had five pieces that were broken.

1. Clockwork Reliquary (Large) Is held into tiny slitted areas, completely fell off. I managed to work it back in there but I don't know how well that'll hold up.

2. Numerous small pieces from the mites on spiders, these guys have been through war it seems, both my mites are fighting with stumps and their spider mounts all lost a limb it seems.

3. Tongue broke off one of my two hounds

4. Shrexix? (spider thingie) Once again, busted legs.

Very distressing to hear pieces rattling around in the boxes when we open these up. I love these miniatures but I'll definitely have to re-think buying a case in the future. Wizkids needs to take less chances on their sculpts or need to use slightly softer plastics on the ones that have a lot of tiny spindly pieces poking around--I'd rather have a bent spider limb over broken off ones.

Bottom line--for the price of these miniatures I would expect much better care being taken in the design and manufacture of these. Long time D&D miniature fan never had this happen with those.


Solid if uninspiring third showing

3/5

This third set of Pathfinder pre-painted miniatures is both very exciting and very disappointing. The miniatures themselves continue to be well sculpted, posed, and have a few stand-outs amongst them(alchemical golem, I'm looking at you).

Most of the set, however, suffers from duller color-schemes relative to earlier sets and almost cartoonish design for too many of the monstrous figures. The smaller pieces in particular lack visual clarity and would not stand out on a busy gaming mat (is that a cleric of Zon Kuthon, or one of my 145 other evil darkly painted humanoids? And those hideous mites!)

The extremely elaborate and ambitious paint schemes for many of the humanoid pieces should be set-pieces, but are too often so off-center that half of the patterns are missing. I enjoy the detailed patterns, but I'd like to be able to see all of them.

I love many of the pieces, but the price makes it hard to justify continuing to buy entire sets instead of the handful of stand-out pieces. The first two sets had far more stand-out pieces and an overall much more colorful and identifiable theme. Unless you're rolling in money I suggest looking to the single's market and picking up the pieces that really stand out to you.

For those of you like me lucky enough to have substantial collections from earlier products, again, I would suggest looking to singles. The wyvern is particularly nice.

In closing, I would also warn that many of these pieces are relatively fragile and come off their bases very easily. Open carefully!


Great looking figures way too many broken

4/5

Let me start by saying these are some really amazing looking figures.
The set itself is really well done, with an exception or two(the Dullahan is riding a miniature pony...or is a really bad sculpt)I got mine through a different distributor and got a factory sealed case delivered by UPS. The box arrived in very good condition so mishandling can only account for so much. My set had seven broken figures (3 off bases and easy fixes 1 missing arm a so-so fix 1 broken giant sword jury is still out on a fix and 2 so smashed they are a complete wash) I realize that there will be some degree of breakage but seven in one case for the price charged is too high. In every instance the broken figures had been smashed by the large figure which had come loose. Either a better grade of plastic (or a softer not sure which) or a better means of packaging is needed here. Sending figures back to Wizkids is a hassle I shouldn't have to put up with to get a complete unbroken set and is the reason I can only give this set 4 stars.


So much progress!

5/5

To be honest, I was one of those skeptical people about the Shattered Star set. I don't intend to play the AP, and I couldn't even imagine a creature I really wanted to have as a miniature from that adventure path. I was dead wrong.

Paizo and Wizkid put so much work into this set that the result is simply outstanding! Some of the minis in this set are simply some of the best I've ever seen. Some examples of those include the Alchemical golem, all eight elementals (four mediums, four larges that lean toward the huge in size), the Clockwork reliquary, the Wyvern, the Troll Champion... I could put half the set on this list easily. The details are incredible, the material and colour are amazing, and the sheer size of some larges is off the charts.

Granted, the price is still high, but I'm a firm believer that quality has a price. Thank you Paizo and Wizkids for matching the former with the latter.

Suprisingly, I haven't talked yet about the Gargantuan Blue Dragon. As some people rightly stated on the RotRL set reviews, the special miniature of a set deserves a special treatment and should be outstanding by nature. The dragon certainly does match this description, but my point is that it isn't even the best part of the set!

My conclusion will go back to the title of my review. This set is so great that it makes me appreciate the incredible progress Paizo and Wizkids have made over the course of only three sets. This bodes well for future sets, and they can certainly count on me buying their production.

The quality of plastic needs to be addressed, I simply can not afford to keep buying figures that either come broken or get broken so easily.

What you fail to understand the plastic has to be as stiff as it is to maintain the detail that they are achieving with these miniatures. The "other" line did not have near the detail that this line does. For that I am glad that they are doing what they are doing with the plastic and would rather they did not change a thing as far as the quality. Now packing the large miniatures with a twist tie for the larges

Does it have to be an all or nothing thing? I ask from the point of view of knowing zero about the plastics so this is an honest question. Could they make them slightly less brittle without going all the way to no detail?

Not really. If they were to make the plastic less stiff they loose some of the detail that they have currently. It just does not get to the crisp enough look to them that the DDM line lacked for the WotC line in the past.

Got a brick in the mail from an online retailer today. I actually had two larges with twist ties holding them i. One was a large air elemental and it had a baggie around it as well. I had no breakages but several loose pieces and I'm counting myself lucky that my Mites on Spiders came through in one piece.

Really digging the sculpts, especially my elementals!

I also really hope that the plastic quality can be addressed. Its very common that at least once a session a mini gets dropped on the floor (which is concrete). I am very concerned about bringing these to my gaming table for this reason.

The whole reason I started collecting pre-painted minis was because of their durability. Metal minis were too easy to damage or chip their paint.

To me the issue of fragility is not about packaging... its about the composition of the plastic. I can handle a little less detail for having more durable minis. Plus, with the significant amount of paint steps Paizo is using on these minis, they will still look really good, even without all the detailed little bits.

Here's hoping this can be addressed in future sets.

That would be really sweet! There are already a couple of minis out there which use the art work from KM.

Concerning the brittleness of the plastic used: they could use 2-component moulding, but that would increase price (dramatically, I believe).
If packaging is improved and the adhesive they use for fixing the minis to their bases, I'd be more than happy.

Now you've got me anxious about what the one I've ordered will look like upon arrival. *crosses fingers*

Ruyan.


I bought 2 bricks to start and then some singles, as I was unable to afford a full case this go around, and I had quite a few broken figures. My Vrock figure is missing a finger, one of my Xulgaths is missing an arm ... they were not broken off in shipping, the finger and arm are just not there. So, they had to have been packaged that way, and not sure how that could be missed. I got two hounds of tindalos and one of them had its tongue snapped off. There were other breakages but those are the main ones.

The biggest disappointment to me was my Clockwork Reliquary. Awesome figure, but there are scratches across the "glass" covering the skeleton, one of the legs is not secured to the base. When I tried to push it into the base, the leg broke completely on me.

So, I am overall happy with the figures that I got that are not broken, but the breakages are too much. I had no breakages with the previous sets that I bought full cases of, and these seem to have slipped in durability.

Has anyone else gotten a case with bizarre distribution?

I opened mine last night, and didn't get a single Caedimus, and only one Medium Water Elemental. I was expecting 4 of each common, so to only get a single of one, and none of another was strange. I think there were 7 Clockwork Soldiers and 6 Earth elementals.

For Rares, there are three that I am missing; Amiri,Ardanthus and the Large Air Elemental, but I have 3 Grey Maiden Commanders, 2 Lem, 2 Dullahan, & 2 Mesmalatu. Looking at other reports it looks like a case normally yields one full set with no duplicates, but I have 3 missing Rares with 5 duplicates, including 2 extra GM Commanders, so it looks like I got 2 extra rares out of the deal. How many rares are typical in a case?

My Uncommons were also a little off, since I only got 1 Shreixyx and 1 Ravenous Ooze, but for uncommons that doesn't seem too unlikely. I just can't believe that out of 32 boosters I didn't get one of a common figure.

As an aside I also had 4 broken figures: Mite on Spider with broken arm, Grey Maiden Commander sheared off at the knee and Xin who broke off at the feet. Nothing super serious, but it might be nice if they worked on better plastic or packaging; it seems like the larges getting loose in the case do most of the damage.

Where did you get the Case from? Was it a Closed Case?


reminds me of when i use to play yu-gi-oh.


Just got a brick (which I split with a friend) and I was VERY impressed with these minis. Excellent use of transparent plastic and dynamic poses throughout. There were some real standout paintjobs (like Sheila Heidmarch), and the Clockwork Reliquary was just a sight to behold. The Hill Giant was the only large that didn't impress me. No broken ones - hurrah!

General question - where is the best place on the boards to start a trading thread? I used to do quite a bit of DDM trading, but I don't see much of that happening here. Are there people interested in trading, or do most people order a case and already have at least one of every mini they want?

Liberty's Edge

Regarding the packaging: in RotRL, the half that held the S & M figs had a slot in the shell that, when putting the two halves together, the large base goes in the slot and locks the large mini in. I didn't have a lot of problems with with the packaging, but when I did, it was because it wasn't properly packed with the large locked in the slot.

Is this the same in this set? For those larges that seem to be regularly causing problems, does the packaging have this slot available to lock the large but isn't being used properly?

I've only got a handful of minis I'd want to trade, but I'm sure there are people that would be interested.

The set list has been added to the product description.


I'd love to order a couple of bricks from this set but I can't after seeing all of these breakage issues. I have 2 kids who sometimes drop minis. All of my RotR minis are hanging in like champs. I'll just wait for the next set.
