This is my first purchase in the Daring Tales of Adventure product line. Overall, I am quite impressed with the value present in this product. The quality of the artwork is superb. The selection is more than adequate. There are plenty of heroes, sidekicks, villains, and by-standers provided. The tri-fold design is not my favorite, but I was quickly able to manipulate the images to provide two-sided figures which I then mounted to home-made slotted foam core bases. I printed multiples of the Nazi figures, since, as you well know, there are always more Nazis. There are enough different poses to make the Nazis look good in a horde. My only complaint is that there are too few poses of some of the other figure types. There are plenty of different colors uses bewteen the figures, but a different pose or two (or five) would have been nice. Still, I'm completely satisfied with the purchase and am planning on buying more the Daring Tales of Adventure line for my home and convention games.

So I am looking for paper figs for an upcoming round of pulpy goodness for games like Spirit of the Century, Hollow Earth Expedition, and come across these, which then lead me down the slippery slope of other Pulp goodness and their entire Daring Tales of Adventure Line (so see my reviews on those products if you want more info). But to this product. It comes with pages of good Pulpy Characters. If you want go to their website and download the freebies to see what you are getting, in fact do that anyway as those in the Freebie are not in this one. Now to some of the meat of the product. First the good news, all the pre-gen characters of the adventures are in this pack. As are most of the villains any pulpy person would encounter. Plus there are clear indications that this set will satisfy several other solid releases to come from Triple Ace games.
So what is there not to like. Well, first the figures are all 3 fold characters (so 2 fronts and a black back), so a good breeze or the comforting cool of a fan can scatter your entire force to the wind. Solutions have been many (paper clips to finding hard to obtain card holding gizmos). I wish they had perhaps gone the route of other companies (like Precis Intermedia Games) with a single fold with a wide base that could easily be glued to pennies. Now I understand why they did this, all the Paper Figures from Earlier PEG items (like Deadlands) were done this way, its just hard to weigh them down. Still I give this product and what it brings to any pulp game a good solid A grade. And I do hope they release more providing more figures for their published scenarios and vehicles (etc.), as well as looking to other Pulp games to perhaps provide for them as well (looking for Hollow Earth Expedition Beastiary). Keep up the good work and look forward to buying more.
