I gave the set 4/5 stars simply because I'm not impressed with WOC's casting technique, I find the quick cast method doesn't always work. My Mialee figure for instance (GREAT pose!) has lost the detail on one of her sides due to poor casting. I've seen the same with some of Wizards blister's. (I bought a female Paladin, who only had half a face!) A note for buyer's of this set: it seems there was some controversy over how the Mialee figure originally looked, & she was replaced with a less...anatomically correct figure, with the same pose but fuller hair & a different outfit. Also for some unknown reason Wizards also replaced the human fighter (Redgar) with a figure in a totally different pose. (upraised sword) It would have been nice if they'd put some sort of explanation in the box...to advise the buyer. This is where WOTC really needs to improve, they need some really good quality assurance inspector's working for them.
Also I DO find that compared to other companies, WOC caster's do not make the figures "slots" easy to work with. All it takes is a little extra cutting of the mould...
I miss the days of Grenadier & Ral Partha, I only hope that WOTC continues to improve their mini's for a new generation of RPG players. All in all...for serious Mini painter's out there...this box is worth it.
My advice to those who just want to invest minimally into these is to have some superglue for the bases and the shield, a small wire cutter for removing excess flash, and maybe a teeny, tiny file for smoothing out slight imperfections.
For those who are interested in painting and finishing these models, realize that you are getting into a new hobby and may spend a bit of money on acrylic paints, brushes, inks, glues, putty, and other tools as well as butcher your first few models before you achieve any really slick results.
These models are as well made as any I've seen on the market. They beat the heck out of paper counters if you like DnD and they can look nothing short of spectacular if you know what you're doing.
Last but not least the bar at the foot of the miniatures was different for all miniatures, so that only 1 of the 5 actually fit well in the footpieces coming with the set.
The other set off miniatures (Monsters) was in a similar sorry state, though at least there all 6 miniatures were present (but 1 was unrepairable :(
Tordek the dwarf is my personal favorite. His scale mail is incredible as are the details to his belt and scabbard. All of the models are superbly sculpted and scale up well with each other. (Unlike some chainmail figures I have.)
Overall (once you clean them up) this set is well worth the money and is easy to recommend. If you haven't used miniatures in your D&D campaigns you should! They're lots of fun and this is a perfect way to start.
