Better than the pictures

*****

I was hesitant to buy these minis since I didn't like the pictures (and white dragons aren't my favorite), but it turns out the minis look better than the pictures.

These dragons are so beautiful, I'd have no problem using them for any color of dragon.

These are great minis to look at and to have at the table. Great value as well.


Much better than the pictures!

*****

These minis look actually very primal and terrifying when in hand.
The medium tower over almost every other medium humanoid mini - no matter if from Pathfinder Battles or Dungeons and Dragons sets.
The large white Dragon is much larger than the one from D&D and looks lots better - perfect for JADE REGENT.
The HUGE one is the only white one made for prepainted plastic and is perfect - especially for RISE OF THE RUNELORDS!

The details on mine are amazing, really looks like the picture in the BESTIARY.

I have almost every dragon mini but these are the best!

A "must-buy".


Very good

****( )

Although the red dragons are better than those, the white dragons are quite good, the sculpts are very good but the coloring could be better.
I really like the dragon evolution line i really want to do all the dragons (especially the evil ones).


I like where this set is going!

*****

At first I was resisting the urge to purchase this when I saw it at PaizoCon. But every time I walked through the store it called to me. Finally, I mentioned it to my wife, who loves dragons, and we caved.

This is a fine set of minis, at an acceptable price for non-random. If you want to expand your collection of dragon figs, get this set. I hope to see more sets of the other colors coming soon.


Solid Set of White Dragons

****( )

I picked up a white dragon evolution set from my FLGS, and this is a decent group of dragons. Each one is a good mini that will find use at the table savaging PCs. The large dragon is the best, followed by the huge. While this is a good set, there are a couple of issues that could be improved in the future and also a limitation inherent in this set.

The biggest problem, and limitation, for this set is that white dragons are white dragons; there is not an extensive pallet available to liven up these feral terrors of the north. The paint scheme is a thick white dry brush over a blue base, which works to give some depth to the minis and break up the monotony of white. The actual paint jobs are a bit chalky and occasionally blotchy, but not to an aggravating extent. A few additional details also could have been added, such as picking out the ends of the wing digits in black, similar to the bestiary picture, however, in the end these dragons are supposed to be able to blend in with their frigid environment and these three would do that just fine.

I like the sculpts, particularly the sculpt of the large, which is the most dynamic; each looks like they could be getting ready to breathe or to pounce. The medium and large dragons are toward the bigger end of their size range, while the huge is nearer the smaller end, though it is still noticeably bigger than the large. In comparison to the young red dragon from Rise of the Runelords, the large white is a monster; it would take the young red into a dark crevice in its glacier and that would be the end of that story. Comparing it to various DDM large dragons, the large white is the more sizable, especially with its spread wings. The seams, always a potential pitfall, are well enough disguised that each dragon mostly looks like it is made of one piece. All of the dragons are solidly on their bases and the wings are flexible enough to take some abuse, while being rigid enough to hold their shape.

Overall, this is a solid first set in what I hope is a long-lived evolution line of minis; 3.5 stars, rounded to 4. I am looking forward to the next set, but in the meantime I will enjoy these white dragons and the memorable encounters they will help deliver.

Oooo, that's a good idea for a product...

That's a great idea! Any chance we'll get even bigger minis as part of this line?


And the other chromatics? The regular Battles minis are outside my price range, but I'll definitely be buying the dragon set(s).

Contributor

Nice! This is really awesome!

How does the Huge White Dragon look next to the Huge Black Dragon from Heroes and Monsters?

Great idea!

Here's hoping for a garg green and a garg red at some point now ^^

This is absolutely one of the most awesome ideas you've had to date, Paizo. Well done!

I have a great many future customers who will be incredibly happy with this product. Don't underestimate how much of this you will sell.

Mind. Blown.

All over it. If you promise to make all five chromatic sets, I promise to buy them all!


I seriously cannot wait for these minis. They should be be out just in time for my players to run into a certain Ancient White Dragon.


Very nice! Which figure is which?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Left to right in the images there it's medium, large, huge.

This is an excellent idea. Of course I also want a Gargantuan one.

This is a wonderful idea for a miniatures product, Paizo. Well done! I will be picking up one of these sets upon release.

Honestly, a set such as this could help not only dragons, but with other creatures known to be various sizes; elementals, sharks, and squid immediately come to mind as future products.


Absolutely brilliant!!

It's not prepainted, but I'm pretty sure Deathsleet is Gargantuan. Picture available on the Bones Kickstarter page.

And I have the old one from WOTC. But these figures are so superior I want them to do anything.

Heh heh ... same here Ben. I absolutely cannot wait for these. (Of course I'm hoping for a Blue Dragon (Evolutions) set as well ... y'know for a certain Huge Blue Dragon (from the same AP I think we are both talking about) but ... it's final chapter ... not it's penultimate chapter. ;)

More Dragons (Evolutions) sets I say! Please. :D

Yeah, I've got all four whites from the DDM line (from small to Gargantuan), and even with those, I really want this. For one thing, there's a medium sized White, which DDM never had. Another thing is that the paint schemes on these are way better than their DDM equivalents, especially on the mouths. I've been trying to curb my mini buying, and then this comes out. A great idea, props to whoever came up with the idea for this.
I also would love to see not only other dragon sets but maybe even an "animal evolution" set (like boars, wolves, snakes) an ooze evolution set (maybe with 3-4 mediums for those that split), and the no-brainer: an elemental evolution set


My (white) Dragon Disciple thanks you!

We'd really like WizKids to make them. If you'd like to help make sure that happens, help make sure *this* one sells well!


Is this one going to be actually huge or is an another one in the large on huge base/huge on gargantuan base series?

You might want to check out Erik's posts in the discussion thread for the Paizo blog in which this set was announced; he goes into some detail on that point.

It would certainly be interesting to see the old Black Dragon on a Large base and a new sculpt on the Huge base in a Black Dragon Evolution pack sometime down the line.

After all the other dragons get their due, of course. :)

Preordered! HUZZAH!

I'm getting close to needing one of these for my Runelords game. I think the timing will be perfect.

WIll this be a limited release or is iy intended to be an ongoing (evergreen?) product like the goblins pack?

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

I believe the intention is to keep this set in print for a while.

Excellent news.

I really would like to see a green one next in line, to go with the new Dragon's Demand module! In fact go ahead and order, I promise you they will sell quickly!

I would also like to see a green one.

And a gargantuan one.

Wow! one day before street date and it's already backorder. Any idea on when it will be available again? I was hoping to add it to my cart to be shipped with my subscription...

Thanks!

Wow, Not even the 10th and already backordered. I hope this means it is doing well and we will see more of these.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

The backorder status is a bug... it's really a preorder. It should fix itself in a few hours.


I just ordered it, it wasn't a preorder, hope it isn't another bug.

I saw these at the PaizoCon store. They are loverly.

Not a bug, but we're still checking inventory back in from PaizoCon. Rest assured, your trio of dragons is heading to your tabletop game soon. :D

My order, from another retailer, shipped yesterday. I hope I get them tomorrow. I can use the Medium tomorrow night and the big one will show up in my RotRL game later. :D
