Very nice cardboard minis. I used them for a pathfinder game years ago and they worked great.

Hi This a a great starter set for any fantasy style role-play game. The style and types fit a class based system but could be used for other styles. I love the good variety and posses. Wish I had seen these before. Good art color and posses. As well as utility.

Great buy.

Very good artwork, but I would like to see the figures print a bit larger and fully take up the size of their printing cell. For me, they're about 20mm size rather than 25-28mm. It would also be good if they came laid out for printing as 2d counters, but ultimately, I've purchased a couple of these sets and I'm quite happy with them.

A great pack with mostly human minis with a couple elves and dwarves. The mounted minis also have an unmounted versions which is excellent. I printed them on 60 lb paper (light card stock) to make them more durable. No problems printing or folding. Excellent assortment of classes!

Really loved this set. A wide range of figures to form parties from. The one downside is that there seems to be a high proportion of male human fighters, but I guess they can be used as NPCs easily enough.

I am a cheap skate so I try to find a good set of paper minis. I really like Arion minis over all. They look awesome on the table and really stand. There tri fold design helps them from not falling over easily. There line pretty much covers every thing you can think of for the world's most popular role playing game. There is just a couple of big things missing from the line(normal animals for starters) but I am cheap and can over look that. This set is my fav I have. It covers all the basic classes and gives a nice variety of choices. The characters are dressed in pretty much period clothing no weird modern wow inspired art. a lot of them are in dynamics poses which is very nice to see.

Well i really did try not to buy anymore but these products are so good and far less expensive than their metal counterparts. I look forward to some new sets maybe aimed at the 4e characters.

Great detail, and certainly MUCH more value for money than 3D figures.

Pewter or plastic minis are great but can be cost prohibitive when amassing a reasonable variety for a campaign. Arion Games paper minis are a cost effective alternative that look great and can be printed in whatever quantities are needed. When printed on cardstock, they are also fairly durable. Most come in both 2-sided and 3-sided formats and all are in full color. Even if you intend to acquire more traditional miniatures over time, these paper miniatures are an outstanding base from which to start. Highly recommended!

The characters are very well done, but - except for the barbarians - seem a little bit too 'down to earth' to suit the contemporary D&D "dungeon punk" style. Armor and clothing are excellent, except for some of the unicolored robes and capes, which look cartoonish on otherwise highly realistic characters. All in all, four stars out of five. I also recommend buying Fantasy Heroes II!

An excellent variety of rather varied hero types, ranging from a wide selection of warriors to a smattering of demi-humans and spellcasters, even a bard and a druid. The models are quite realistic and depict the subject matter very nicely.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: A very useful cross-section of fantasy adventurer types.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: A few more 'ethnic' characters would have been nice. Also didn't care for the scout being mounted on a big lizard, limiting that model's usefulness. Still, very minor quibbles.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Miniatures, for those of us who don?t want to ?collect? miniatures, due to limited space, cash, or desire, are a necessary evil due to the many games with detailed tactical combat systems. This puts us in a bind; miniatures make handling combat much easier, but how to use them without having to handle a ton of minis. Paper minis provide a good solution for to this problem. Paper minis provide a nice alternative to traditional minis, in that they are inexpensive and disposable. When they are packaged as a PDF, you are provided with a reusable, readily available source of minis for your games. Print those that you need, when they get to be a pain to have lying around, you can throw them away, with PDF tucked away for when you need to print some more. They are also handy for ?collectors? of traditional minis to provide additional figures, or non-precious stand-ins if you don?t want to worry about your minis being damaged or lost at an unfamiliar, or merely overcrowded, gaming table.

The figures in Arion Games? miniatures sets come in 3 styles, ?A-frame?, ?Flat?, and ?Triagonal?. The ?A-frame?, and ?Flat? figures can be constructed from the same sheets, depending on how they are cut-out. The ?Triagonal? minis are constructed from a separate sheet. These construction choices provide additional options in preparing your minis for use in the game, major characters or monsters can be constructed as the ?Triagonal? versions to provide a more visual flair, and to emphasize their importance. Other figures can be done as ?A-Frame? or flat versions to make them easier to handle or distinguish them from each other, thus providing a functional use beyond their graphical characteristics.

The instructions are easy to follow and assembling the minis is quick and painless, just requiring a bit of work with scissors and some glue. There are also instructions provided on how to prepare a custom sheet of figures to meet your specific needs. The minis look good, even when printed on plain paper. Each figure is drawn from a 3D rendering (done in Poser using figures provided by DAZED, according to the credits), providing sharp detail and life-like shading, even when printed.

This 5 page PDF (9 with cover & assembly instructions) provides an expansive set of 41 paper miniatures featuring a selection of 34 ?Fantasy? hero figures of all archetypes, Barbarians, Fighters, Rogues, Wizards, Clerics, Elves, Dwarves, Paladins, Druids, Archers etc. It also includes four mounted figures, a mounted Elf Knight, a mounted Paladin, a mounted Female Scout, and a Pack Pony.

The set includes two Archer figures (both a male and female, each looking quit striking in light armor and hip mounted quiver), two Barbarian figures (one male, looking far too cartoony for my taste, and one female one who makes Red Sonja proud (The new comic, not the movie!), seven Fighters figures (six male and one female by my count, it?s kind of hard to tell, they?re all wearing armor! Their panoply covers the gamut of the medieval era, looking Saxon, Norman, late medieval, and Persian like.), one Elven Sorceress figure (who seems to be holding a lemon-lime slurpee fast-frozen as it was dumped from the 2nd floor balcony in the mall.), two Dwarf Fighters figures (could be female, who can tell with Dwarves, both very Nordic influenced), one Halfling figure (looking like he just escaped the Rankin-Bass version of the hobbit.), one Paladin figure(in silvered ornate half-plate), one Valkyrie figure (which works as a generic Nordic inspired female fighter), one Priestess figure (in a plain white robe style dress), one Bard (ready for business with a sword over his shoulder), one Cleric figure (looking quintessentially D&D Cleric like with the mace he is sporting), one Female Scout figure, one Rogue figure, one Dwarven Cleric figure, two Wizards figures (one old school Tolkienesque style wizard, and one new school stylin? wizard in a subdued overcoat style robe with high contrast hem & sleeves, he wins the best dressed wizard award.), two Thieves figures (one male and female) one Warrior Mage (in light rogue style clothing brandishing something or other), one Elf Knight figure (with a baroque helmet), one Druid figure (Looking very much like Grizzly Adams in a white robe.)

Finally there are the four mounted figures, one Mounted Paladin figure, one Mounted Female Scout, one Mounted Elf Knight figure, and one Pack Pony.

Overall, this is very good set from Arion games. This is an earlier set in the series, and the figures seem a bit smaller and muddier compared to the later sets, however, the variety and number more than makes up for the less detailed artwork. Many of the figures, such as the Fighter, Archer, and Scout figures, would work well for historical gaming, or you can prepare several of a particular fighter figure appropriate to the historical period. Adding in the fact that you can print as many as you need, and prepare your own figure sheets, this is excellent value as well. I recommend this set to anyone looking for large section of Fantasy figures for general use, particularly for PC figures. <br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Fighter figures, Archer Figures, Female Barbarian<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: barbarian too cartoony, Elven Sorceress, Warrior Mage.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
