Darkfast Classic Fantasy Set Two: Wood Elves

Another awesome Okum Minis set. The layering gives you multiple sets of minis in one and the artwork is excellent!

Cool Cards Eladrin Male Heroes
Publisher: Gordon_McDonald
by JERRY M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/02/2011 13:23:04

A much better set of minis than the Kobolds Set. A fair variety of assorted Eladrin (DD4E Elves) with assorted weapons.

While the characters are still shown in a "standing at attention" pose, the variety of outfits, weapons, and arm positions makes this a better set for generic elf or half elf heroes.

A few animal companins are included as well.

While not as high quality as the Prescicion Intermedia minis or as full of character and variety as the Okumarts, One-Monk, Pathfinder Paper Minis, or Inked Adventures paper sets, these do have some personality and are a good value for $1.95.

In addition, these minis have a more "drawn" feel as opposed to the digital poserart/ Sims look of some paper minis sets and will fit in well with other paper mini sets.

All in all, a decent value and a nice selection of male elf-type adventurers.

The lack of facial variety and the fairly static poses (all of these look like they were standing for a portrait painting instead of actually being adventurers) are the only real complaints.

I look forward to seeing what is coming next.

Cool Cards Kobold Collection
Publisher: Gordon_McDonald
by JERRY M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/27/2011 17:57:55

This was a disappointing set of minis. Pretty much standing pose kobolds with little detail and nothing dynamic or interesting about them. These have no personality and look pretty much like the same model with a few variations.

The "kobolds" look like open-mouthed liizardmen, with little to distinguish them from one another and nothing to give them any individuality. Even the equipment looks out of place for kobolds. for the most part, these look like someone took a human "knight" model and gave it a poorly drawn lizard head and legs.

There are lots of very good paper minis set out there. Even at $1.95, this was a poorly done set. Even a single different pose would be an improvement, or something that looked more "koboldy".

As a collector of paper minis, I'd recommend finding another source for your gaming models. In the end, this looks like it was done in a few minutes by swapping colors and weapons and armor on a single, poorly done model.

Disposable Heroes: Fantasy Set 2 (Humanoids)
Publisher: Precis Intermedia
by JERRY M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/30/2006 00:00:00

This was a good set of minis, covering the common "cannon fodder" humanoids in most RPGs: Goblins, Hobgoblins, Kobolds, Orcs, Gnolls, Bugbears, and Lizardmen/Troglodytes.

The detail is a little cartoony, but the models all have character and some interesting weapons. (And the kobolds look perfect for use in Kobolds ate My Baby...with similar gear and so on to that game.)

A few problems, however:

1) The pieces are all about the same size, giving a 3' 80# kobold the same sized piece as a 7'6" 350# bugbear.

2) Like all of the disposable hero sets, the pieces print out as 1 sheet plus a few more, meaning that you end up wasting a lot of cardstock on 6 to 10 counters. I assume this can be rectified by changing the download style from the website, but it was annoying.

3) It would have been nice to get a few more poses for each of the races. For the price, I would have expected maybe 8-10 of each race instead of 4. And that would also solve the printing problem.

However, for the price, they were fun. <br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Detail was nice.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Not as many poses for the cost. The odd print layout meant wasted cardstock.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Humanoids Set
Publisher: Arion Games
by JERRY M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/30/2006 00:00:00

Im going to preface this by saying that I am not a huge fan of the SIMs graphics or computer generated artwork. As a result, this is not a set that will get much use by me or my players.

That being said, some of the detail is nice, and it is good to see trolls and ogres being done with a non-D&D look to them.

The lizardmen could have been a bit more detailed or maybe better defined, and the characters look a little too well lit, but thats part of what I normally dislike about this sort of artwork anyway. So, take that into consideration.

However, if you like this sort of WOW artwork, the pieces do have that feel to them and would look good in a RPG based on a video game, like WOW or Diablo.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Not too costly.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Not a big fan of computer graphic art. Lizardmen could have been better.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Disappointing<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>

Stand-Ins Printable Figures - Fantasy Set #1
Publisher: IDA
by JERRY M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/30/2006 00:00:00

Heroines with back problems abound in this set. As mentioned in other reviews, the females in this set appear to be the product of an adolescent imagination, and it takes away from the quality of the other figures. Huge breasts, exposed nipples, and toothpick thin waists and limbs make me wonder if the artist has ever really seen a live woman up close. (and what is with the spherical silicone breasts?)

As for the rest of the counters, I did enjoy the different races. Female bimbos aside, there are some nice elves and halflings, and a few cool demons as well. The minotaur was very poor however, being just a man with horns?!?!

While the idea of B&W so that you could paint them yourself is useful for those with the time and skill to do so, most players these days want color counters, and that would have been a better value.

Overall, not really worth the cost.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Some of the races were OK.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Grotesquely out of proportion women wiht R-rated exposed breastsand bizzare limbs. Silly minotaur. Black and White.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Disappointing<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>

ScreenMonkey v1.5
Publisher: NBOS Software
by JERRY M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/30/2006 00:00:00

I purchased ScreenMonkey after visiting the booth at Gen Con and seeing what the program had to offer. While there are other platforms out there that will allow similar types of online gaming, SM has the advantages of being: A) Inexpensive: Once the GM gets it, all the players get to play for free! Though only the owner can run games. B) Easy to use: Quick and simple. Even after a few minutes of the Demo, it becomes ovious how easy and fun SM will be for online play C) Well supported: with the questions I did have after purchasing the game, I never waited more than one day before getting an answer back, often withing an hour or so of sending an email!

Overall, this is great for gamers who have drifted apart-physically- from their old game groups, GMs who want to try something with other groups, or gamers who just aren't geographically close enough to get together and play face to face.

With the addition of Fractal Mapper and Inspiration PAd, there are a lot of nice things that GMs can add to the game, like detailed online maps and detailed tables.

My one problem was getting the maps I imported to scale properly. It took some work to make the maps chow up so that the counters didnt appear to large or too small. A scaling function on the main toolbar would have helped.

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to play real RPGs (as opposed to MMORPGS) online.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Ease, cost, support. <br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Scaling maps took some time.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
