The images are clear and easy to see. I even like the "high school art class" look of them. What I don't like is that this PDF is locked so if you wish to work with the images in Photoshop et al then your SOL. Also, there is a small and completely unnecessary circle in the bottom corner of the images assumable to write in numbers since you can't edit the stupid image. If this had been done properly with layers in the PDF then the circles could be turned off and the images viewed without the marring.
For what you get, the price on this product is outlandish. I unfortunately, cannot recommend this product to people unless you just want to print the images exactly as they are and then hand write in the numbers. This means wasting huge amounts of paper and ink since it is almost certain that there will not be the quantity of the particular token you desire on one page.

I use these counters exclusively for my games. To make them "pop" off the battle mat, I reccomend cutting some foamcore into squares and glueing the counters onto the foamcore.

The artwork is very generic, which is great for re-use.

4th Edition has been around for several months now, and one could almost say that the new edition wouldn't be complete without some artwork and counters from artist Claudio Pozas and Fiery Dragon Productions. Counter Collection 4th Edition Heroic 1 presents hundreds of counters for the Heroic tier of the 4th edition GSL game from the talented mind of Claudio Pozas.

This 19 page pdf product presents one inch square counters for every 4e GSL creature from levels 1 to 10, and includes both new artwork, older artwork that's been updated, and several pieces of work from previous counter collections. The counter total in the product is a staggering 656 counters, of which there are 223 unique images. This product does not contain digital copies of the counters - digital images will be released later this year in the announced Counter Collection Digital v3.0.

This product comes as a single pdf file, in which 17 of the products 19 pages are devoted to the artwork and counters. Counters are organised by level, starting with level 1 creatures and ending with level 10 creatures. Each page contains a header indicating the level, and the names of the creatures on the page are provided in text at the bottom of the page.

This is probably not the best way to identify the counters, since you'd need to count the counters while scanning the text below to check the name of a creature counter contained in the middle of the sheet, which is somewhat time consuming and clumsy. However, I understand that this is likely required to ensure the maximum number of counters per page for easy printing. It would also be useful to have improved spacing between the counters to make then easier to cut out without blotching the line between the counters. The product contains no bookmarks. Overall, a well presented product, though I have very minor reservations about the organisation.

As far as the content and artwork is concerned, this product cannot be faulted, really. The artist presents some vivid and richly detailed images of the various GSL heroic creatures, and some that are truly stunning. Colours are vibrant and vivid, giving the counters impact when placed on the gaming table. There's such a huge selection of counters in this product, that most counters can double for all sorts of other creatures that your characters will face while adventuring. This product offers excellent utility, providing a way to create as many counters of any type of heroic creature you want to. The counters themselves are square - some might prefer to have round counters, but I think the square ones are fine.

There's a lot to like about this product - high quality artwork, excellent variety, good quantities of counters, attention to detail and great overall utility. The product also offers good value for money. My only minor reservation is about the organisation, with something like a table of contents and bookmarks would've improved. Even something as simple as a numbered grid would help to more easily identify creatures in the middle of a sheet. I think this is an extremely useful product, and almost a must-have for any gaming group that uses battlemaps. Excellent product, great artwork, and great utility.

Very nice collection of counters for your low-level 4E gaming. The art is clear and aesthetically satisfying and larger monsters are presented on larger counters so you can accurately represent creature size on the tabletop.

The creatures are organized by level, which is pretty nice if you're trying to grab a handful of level 1 monsters to unleash on your friends. However, this type of organization makes finding creatures slightly more complicated than it has to be. For example, if you know you want a Berserker Orc counter, you first have to remember that he is a level 4 creature in order to locate him in the file. It would be very nice to have an alphabetical table of contents at the beginning of the pdf.

Also, I'm not a huge fan of the flat counters as presented herein. Flat counters are sometimes difficult to identify on the tabletop. It would be nice if Fiery Dragon could present these counters in a tri-fold manner capable of standing on their own. A lot of the Savage Worlds counters come in this configuration. As it stands, I am left trying to figure out some sort of standing item on which to glue or tape these counters so they pop out from the battle mat.

Overall, a very nice collection of counter art, but the presentation could definitely be improved.

Beautiful artwork. A good alternative to plastic miniatures and you can print out as many as you need.
