cawatrooper Posted July 21, 2021 Share Posted July 21, 2021 Having just gotten my box recently, I've noticed there are a lot of minis that I wasn't particularly excited about in the Pledge Manager that really make an impression in person. I'm still working on the odyssey of assembling/gluing so I haven't seen half of the stuff yet anyway, but I've already noticed some minis that really stick out to me. Numbered for simplicity, but in no particular order: 1. Valfuryx I got all the dragons, but was easily most excited for Shav (and am impressed with her as well!). But Valfuryx was one I really just got to complete the set- but on seeing it in person, it's my second favorite right behind Shav! Love just how big and chunky this dragon is- definitely not quite how I had pictured it, but in a good way! 2. Yog Sothoth I'm a big Cosmic Horror/Lovecraft fan, but I figured Yog would be more of an underwhelming mini along the lines of Kaiju Chaos (probably just because of how close they were in the PM). Happy to see this wasn't the case at all! Yog Sothoth is much more imposing than I expected, and will make for a great final encounter in my current 5E campaign as the villain attempts his apotheosis to "godhood". 3. Ape Temple I was really excited for all the terrain, but I had assumed this temple would be kind of a flimsy facade. Turns out, it's a solid, thick hunk of plastic! Obviously it's still a facade (I assume it would be... difficult... to sculpt an entire dungeon out of a single piece of plastic 😆) but it will make for a great set piece for an encounter before entering a jungle or mountain dungeon. I'm sure I'll add to this as I continue to glue (didn't have much time this weekend as I was moving into our new house and building a fence) but I'd also love to know what your sleeper hits are! What stuff did you end up liking far more than anticipated? 13 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
