While the artwork in this product is pretty good, with some interesting detail, the set loses a lot when it comes to quality.

1) Black background on every page is a huge ink-eater. Anyone printing these is going to waste a lot of ink and have some pretty saturated paper or cardstock to deal with.

2) Lack of variation in the monsters. The orcs look identical. Not even a color change on the clothing or (what would be better yet) a weapon swap. Same with the wolves. And the Ogres. The goblins have only two color variants. Though the undead have a few color scheme changes, again, no variant in pose or weaponry. And many of the monsters (especially the orcs) are in a static pose intead of something more action oriented that would fit a combat where these are likely to show up.

3) Lack of back poses or backshadow. This has been covered in other reviews.

All in all, this would be an acceptable set for $.99 or $1.50, but the lack of variant in monsters leaves a lot to be desired. And the black backing makes this a waste of money.

If he corrects the backing problem, I'd come back and review this higher, but that's just a poor choice all the way around.

This is a great looking set of printable miniatures for fantasy adventure games. The artwork is excellent, and reminiscent of the art found in classic RPG rulebooks. The set contains a page of 20 heroes (fighters, rogues, mages, clerics, elves, a dwarf, and a druid) and three pages of monsters (ogres, goblins, giant spiders, zombies, orcs, skeletons, giant rats, a minotaur, wolves, and an evil wizard). All figures have an arrow on their base to designate their facing, and duplicate figures (such as the goblins, rats, skeletons, and spiders) are clearly numbered for ease of reference during combat.

As with their other products, this one has a printing issue – the pages are completely black all the way to the edge, which serves no real purpose, and only wastes black printer ink. (The figures are all contained in white panels, as seen on the cover.) I’d really like to see an updated version of this product that eliminates this waste.

All in all, this is a solid set of paper miniatures for the price.
