Jabbro Jones Miniatures: Fantasy Monsters: Arabian Knights
by Aaron T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/31/2015 21:14:42
This set contains a good mixture of character and creature miniatures for a "fantasy arabian" setting. While it is not totally complete (none of the people wear armor, for example), the mix of character and monster types is hard to argue with. I purchased the set to provide counters for an adventure set in the Emirates of Ylaruam, part of the D&D Mystara world, and they performed admirably. This set even includes bases, which is always something I like to see included in papercraft miniature sets, but often is not present. Thus, this can be called the complete package.

Anitangel Miniatures: Fantasy Creatures: Angels
by Jerri C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/24/2014 12:48:52
I loved this set. I liked that there were male angels. I hate it when people always make angels female. Biblically they are usually considered neuter, but their names historically, come out as male. However, I think that the female angels you have here as warriors are awesome.

Jabbro Jones Miniatures: Fantasy Monsters: Just Deserts in Egypt
by Alastair M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/26/2013 04:53:02
Ancient Egypt's grip on the collective imagination of the Western World seems never to have slackened in recent centuries, so much so, it's become difficult to innovate when representing such a setting in fantasy games. Jabbro Jones has, however, succeeded in bringing a freshness to the figures who can appear there with this set, all beautifully drawn in crisp contours and colours that print out clearly and brightly. An optional PDF layer lets you print an uncoloured outline set too, if you need variant colour-schemes.

There's a mix of the living, the undead, the nearly-dead (the Scarab Swarm's latest meal!), and the never living (the Clockwork Anubis automaton), plus some of Ancient Egypt's famed treasures in the form of four golden Canopic Jars. Perhaps the only mobile things missing are some winged serpents (aside from being shown in period art from the region, the Ancient Greek historian Herodotus described them as if they were real creatures, living in trees and guarding one valley in particular). There is though a winged Hawkman available via the variant layers in either 2 or 2.5D forms, the latter with fold-out wings. And every figure has an appropriately-sized sandy base ready to print-out as well, a thoughtful touch too many paper miniature designers forget to include.

Problems? Thankfully very few. A couple of human-sized characters not standing fully upright are perhaps a little too tall (the Slave Driver leaning at an angle is vertically 35mm foot-to-crown as he stands, while the slave Worker he's driving, back bent by a burden, still stands 30mm high, for example), and several need care when cutting out by-hand, with occasionally tiny gaps to be removed. One or two would benefit from having slightly longer base tabs, as their feet overhang too much on the printed version, making for a potentially weak join to their bases (the Mummy Priest especially). It is though a simple matter to leave an extra piece of unprinted card at the tab ends where this is apparent when hand-cutting, and these are not major points.

Overall, a lovely collection of figures. Would that there were more sets showing such flair and care in both design and inventiveness!

This set has a very original feel to it. The figures are typical of Jabbro Jones, meaning they have very good artwork, and vivid colors.

One special bonus is that they have layers that you can print these out with the colors, or if you prefer, you can print out the black and white version for DYI coloring.

Very nice additiion to any fantasy or desert themed games.

Well, it would seem I am a little late to the party, but this set is very nice. Jabbro Jones features some of the best artwork in the business.

Some of the larger models look a little cartoon-ish, but the figures and smaller elements have a very realistic feel to them.

Beautiful colors and brilliant artwork bring this set to life.

Anitangel Miniatures: Fantasy Creatures: Angels

This set of angels is fantastic! We have the mortal/elestial form of all! Maybe they got punished to be on Earth and they have to do something worthy to regain their wings, or they are angels in disguise helping mortals, only give them a look and the stories will fly!

Jabbro Jones Miniatures: Fantasy Monsters: Arabian Knights
by Richard J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/10/2010 18:44:47
This product has been my favorite set of standies ever! When you take the time to cut out the interior part (between the arm weapon and the body, etc.), once done, this standies take on a three-dimesional feel that makes them more striking than most all my D&D minis. Truely an execellent art job. I originally bought them to cover the lack of Al-Qadim type figures and would love to see standard orcs, etc. to help build out mini armies. With the coloring, shading, and body poses, these are the best standies I've seen and way worth the price!

Jabbro Jones Miniatures: Fantasy Monsters: Arabian Knights
by Joe K. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 08/01/2010 12:06:34
Currently on sale for $3.00 instead of $3.99, Arabian Knights is three pages of counters with a page of desert themed bases for cutting out. The figures are brightly colored, more comic style than realistic. The figures are easy to read and view on a table top. The figures are double sided and have to be cout and glued. The better you are with a sharp blade the less paper you'd have. Me? I'm lazy and go with the paper cutter and have them look with a boxed white effect.

There are several all purpose figures including the Evil Vizier and Bandit, as well as the Mameluke and Merchant. My wish for this product, would be to have a seperate page of Knife Fighters or Bandits for ease of printing, but that's a personal preference.

The monsters included favorites of the themes like efreets and djinn along with giant cobras, giant scorpions, and the dreaded man-scorpion among others. The bases are designed to be cut out and folded. The miniatures, after being cut out and folded, are then glued into the bases.


One of the interesting twist to this file though, is that you can print black and white figures and to save on ink, you can shut the instructions off the layer. This is a nice feature and allows the buyer some level of customization.


If you're looking for an inexpensive way to add some giant desert beasties to your game, Arabian Knights has you covered.

Gorgeous, gorgeous artwork, and a good variety of a creature type that's underrepresented in miniatures in general (and vastly so in paper minis).

One of my favorite sets.

Anitangel Miniatures: Fantasy Creatures: Free Mutant Turtles
by RAISTLIN W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/24/2010 20:46:48
I'm not sure I actually had any reason for a selection of "monsterized" turtles, but it's free! Plus the art is great, nice and sharp, and I've always liked Anitangel's drawing style.

At worst I can use them as a wildlife encounter or as local fantastic wildlife to spruce up a battlefield.

Lots of variety. The incognito versions of the angels make great use as human forms for Angel characters, or simply used on their own as human characters.

Anitangel Miniatures: Fantasy Creatures: Angels
by Dillard R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/15/2009 22:42:24
The multiple layers gives you a great variety of choices in how the standees look. Another great feature of the layers allows you to use a standee NPC incongnito until you want to reveal their real character.

Likes: Layers...by far gives you a great deal of flexibility

Dislikes: Would have liked to have seen one of those Angels that slew 180,000 soldiers in one night type of angels. Most of the male angels looked a bit anemic.

Overall great work and will be willing to buy other products in the future.

Anitangel Miniatures: Fantasy Creatures: Free Mutant Turtles

Anita Broz' mutant turtles are simply wonderful! Her angels are very nice, but I doubt I will use them in RPG. (I think they'd make lovely Xmas Tree ornaments!) These turtles on the other hand are extremely versatile -- Amazon monsters, fantasy beasties, or sci-fi pack animals, these turtles can do it all! They'd also make great specialized trops for Oversoul's Tortoise vs Hare. Another feature making them incredibly useful is the incorporation of layers in the PDF -- no more separate sheets, it's all here, line drawings, color, AND the ability to save ink by turning off the instructions! The only thing missing to totally make me holler their virtues from rooftops would be the inclusion of Robocutter files.

You want these turtles.
You NEED these turtles!
Hey, c'mon, who don't like free turtles!?
