Leader, melee, magic-users,ranged are covered. The "coming right at us" aspect of the Black Widow spider is awesome!

HI this is a good mix of Dark Elf figures and spiders. Royalty, magic users and lots of warriors. Nice looking and well presented. Only criticism is the lack of hand crossbows. Two have crossbows none have a hand crossbow.
However still a good buy

Very good artwork. Lines are registered perfectly so if cut properly there are no flaws in folding. Excellent value I would recommend these to anyone needing to keep track of minions or players playing RPGs.

Nice set of minis, great graphical features for a nice price. Had I been GM-ing some D&D (or Pathfinder), I would use them as adversaries. However, there are a handful of fellow gamers in our gaming club, who play Warhammer Fantasy, so after some scaling, these minis will be nice rank soldiers in my dark elf army. They are after all aesthetically far more appeasing, than some empty cardboard bases.

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!

A great selection of dark elves. They print out in several types of stand-ups. The art is high quality.

Miniatures, for those of us who don?t want to ?collect? minis, 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 3 page PDF (7 with cover & assembly instructions) provides a set of 19 paper miniatures featuring a selection Dark Elves figures, such as warriors, archers, defenders, warlords and spider knight.etc. It also includes the larger ?vehicle-sized? figures, a Giant Spider, and a Male Drider and Female Drider (Apparently these Dark Elves are equal opportunity polymorphers.).

The figures include one Dark Elf Queen figure (looking regal in her gown with long red ribbons in her hair, steeped in the blood of upworlders no doubt,) two Dark Elf Archers (though technically crossbowmen would be more accurate,) one Dark Elf Priestess figure (looking quite striking in a long translucent conical skirt,) one Dark Elf Mage figure (his clothing eliciting a middle eastern look,) one Dark Elf Warlord figure (With his fanned cape, he must be the g**damned batman,) two Dark Elf Defenders figures, looking striking with the ornate light armor and winged conical helmets,) one Dark Elf Standard Bearer figure, two Dark Elf Warriors figures (who both look quite striking in the vaguely middle eastern dress with ornate armored leggings,) one Dark Elf Sorceress figure (looking like a dancer in her garment and wrappings, my purple dancer?) one Dark Elf Warrioress figure (who looks quite imposing with ornate shield and pole arm,) one Dark Elf Drummer figure (sporting the ornate vaguely middle eastern clothing style and winged conical helmet,) and finally one Dark Elf Spider Knight (looking quite bad ass, dual wielding a set of scimitars, Kiss my Drizzt?).

Also included are the three ?vehicle? figures, one Giant Spider figure, of which there are two copies (looking like a black widow with small armored body and spindly legs.), one Male Drider figure, his scratchy golden-brown spider body featuring a giant bulbous thorax which dwarfs humanoid torso, and finally one Female Drider figure, her spidery body, also featuring the giant bulbous thorax dwarfing her humanoid torso, is a slick black with a bit too much shine to be believable.

Overall, this is a pretty good set from Arion games. This is an earlier set in the series, and the figures are a bit smaller and muddier compared to the later sets. In addition, I am not fond of the purple color used for the Dark Elves? skin color, admittedly it comes out closer to black than purple when printed, but I would have preferred a nice light black/dark grey for the figures. Additionally, some of the hair and textures seem a bit too plastic and shiny in this version. The costume and accouterments however look very good, affecting an ornate, vaguely Middle Eastern dress that makes them look distinct and imposing. If the coloring of the figures doesn?t cause you any cognitive dissonance, I recommend this set to anyone looking for a stylish, distinct set of Dark Elf minis. Adding in the fact that you can print as many as you need, and prepare your own figure sheets, this is an excellent value as well. <br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Priestess figure, Defenders, Warrioress<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Purple skin coloring, Textures a bit too shiny, hair a bit too plastic on some figures.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

A wonderful set of miniatures. Graham puts some great computer magic on these miniatures to really bring them to life. Certainly more detailed than pre-painted plastic minis and a lot lighter too! This work is one of the reasons I am happy to include Graham's work in The Divine Order: Jute - Faith of Creation.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Nice variety of minis.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Nothing.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
