Probably the cream of the Permes fantasy figure range so far, this set shows off both the scope of what can be achieved with paper miniatures, and the quality of the Permes artwork and design. That artwork alone is superb, with clarity and precision in line and colour, the forms all anatomically correct and nicely animated, with complete front and rear views. Armaments for the troops are roughly half bows, including both command figures, half a wide range of melee weapons. While billed as Elves, aside from their pointed ears, not visible through hoods and helmets on many, these figures could equally pass for fantasy humans. Perhaps most interestingly, except for ten too heavily-robed and hooded to tell, the Elves are female, so could be used for mythological Amazon-type troops as well. No two are quite the same, thanks to variations in posture, colour scheme, weaponry or kit, while if you need more options, there are spare shields and shield fronts to add as desired, plus one figure who can be customized as a standard-bearer or a different warrior.
Besides the humanoids, there are four sabre-toothed big cats, all posed in mid-leap, one grouped with a humanoid Beastmaster, two near-identical (there seems to be a subtle difference in fur colour - or maybe that's just my printer!) with separate small scenery pieces to add that they can be leaping from, and a larger grey cat with optional 2D feathered wings. There are also nine other 2D scenery items from, in decreasing size, a felled tree with its trunk, another fallen trunk, undergrowth, rocks and bushes, down to a large boulder, along with three shields set in the ground as a wall, and a wicker screen for similar use. I'd have liked more of these shield-walls and wicker hurdles. The shield-wall page has a range of optional three-shield-group faces, but no further backs for example, which seems something of a rare oversight, if a fairly minor one.
The only real problem with the set is there are no figure bases provided. These may once have been available on the Permes website, but that seems (April-May 2013) to have vanished into the ether. The designer does have a blog still, in Polish only, which for non-Polish speakers is hard to navigate, so my recommendation would be to pick up a range of different sized bases free from the One Monk paper figures website instead. This is chiefly because the One Monk base textures can be freely downloaded from there too, and you will need some to create your own bases for the three largest scenery pieces here, which are 90mm (3½ inches) up to 130mm (5¼ inches) long. I'd guess many paper figure fans will have these to-hand already, so this is probably just something to be aware of, rather than a major difficulty.
Overall, this is a beautiful set, showing real care and thought in the figures and scenic pieces, a credit to the designer, and a challenge to match or surpass in future. More please!
