One of the latest in the Counter Collection series, Digital v3.0 Paragon includes a wealth of material to get the game going. At $8.00, the product is very reasonably priced. Why then a 4 star review instead of a 5 star review? The art. It's not that the art is bad, but rather that there is a lot of repetition and 'tricks' used to maximize the use of the art. This is evident from starting off with the archons, where the vareity in monster does not necessarily come from a unique piece of art, so much as a flipping and addition of a weapon. Others are very noticible due to the size of the illustration. The large firbolg's for instance, are so obviously flipped or given new weapons, it's like I'm playing with one of those online illustration programs and adding/subtracting weapons.

So why does the product get four stars? For one, there is an ease of use here. The product comes with several PDF files that allow you to load the images here onto the PDF for printing. The second is that the illustrations are full color. This makes them ease to see and use when mixing paper and metal miniatures. The third is that there is a wide variety of material here. Sure, there is repetition in terms of art, but it quickly allows you to print out customized figures and know which monster is where on the battlefield.

In short, if you are looking to expand your figure selection and can't wait for Wizards of the Coast to come out with those monsters you are looking for, the Counter Collection continues to provide solid value for the dollar.

[4 of 5 Stars!]
