This is a single file product of 19 pages that includes several archetype monsters for the Dungeons and Dragons game, many of them useful with any edition or with any fantasy game or even science fiction game. For example, the ice devil would make a great alien species.

The file starts off with... instructions. I noted on another similiar product that it's lack of instructions wasn't a crippling flaw, but instructions, especially when one is using a very sharp object to cut, are useful to have.

These miniatures actually have three 'levels' of difficulty determined by which cutting line you use. There's a light gray, dark gray, and black. Each of these is a thick line so the user shouldn't have too many problems determining what they're cutting. In terms of overall difficulty, the book includes full instructions not only for the cutting and gluing of the bases to the figures, but also for the wings that come seperate on two of the figures. This may take some practice to get right but with the benefit of being able to print out another set if there's an accident, it could be much worse.

The illustrations aren't bad but, and here's the dreaded but, while it's standard, perhaps even obvious, that on the smaller figures there can't be a lot of details or visuals due to the limited size, on the larger figures, there doesn't seem to be a lot of extra detail put in.

For the price point though, this is a minor issue.

One of the nice things about the file, is that on the page for cultists, you get five cultists. On the lemur one, you get four. These are common enemies that you will be facing in numbers and its nice to see that reflected in the file.

If you are on the lookout for demons, devils, the cultists that summon them through pentagrams or portals, this product is for you.
