    Tactical Paper 001

    Good to see Dakkar continuing their policy of producing "A"-frame paper minis linked to specific scenario products from their near-future, adult-themed, "Hot Chicks: The RPG". Others of their figure sets have helped fill a real gap for those gaming this period, so I welcomed this one's appearance.

    Unfortunately, technical issues dominate. Previous Dakkar standee products have provided figure artwork panels around 25mm tall in "actual size" printouts. Here, the same panels are almost 30mm. This is not a huge difference, and will work within the range of typical human norms, but it is immediately apparent which figures are which stood side-by-side.

    Unlike earlier "Hot Chicks" figure sets, there is now a double cut-line between every individual mini and its neighbour on the printout page. This doubles the amount of cutting time and effort for no gain whatsoever; indeed if anything, it increases the chances of a slip with the modelling knife.

    Worst of all, Dakkar seem here to have fallen into one of the common traps of CGI artwork minis generally - what looks good on a brightly-backlit screen in enlarged-size detail often won't render-down into a usefully-printable figurine. In this case, the colours are uniformly far too dark and muddy by the time they're ready to make-up as models. This is really surprising, given earlier products in the Hot Chicks minis range have had much clearer, bolder colour schemes, and so have worked far better as tabletop gaming pieces. With this set, it's hard to know who's who, unless you use the number under the base, which defeats the point of having a figure instead of a counter. There are some clearer minis on page 1, but those on page 2 look like an army of shadows. Overall, disappointing.

    A huge amount of 3D rendered figures, including agents, civilians and some soldier-like types. Poses are generally good, not the goofy or artificial poses sometimes found in this kind of product. I only wish the soldiers in the second sheet of figures were not so dark. When I print them, they look like shadows holding assault rifles.

    Sometimes even I am in complete agreement with a featured reviewer. ;-D

    This is really an excellent product. 92 very good modern/near future different CG paper standees at this price is really a big deal. No exceptions.

    These figures are made for "Hot Chicks: The RPG" but they are extremely useful in any other setting ( RPG or wargame ). I am an adult. And I have no problem with "adult" figures when these are needed for a setting but in this specific case there aren't x-rated figures ( only 2/3 figures in bikinis and no naked ), so everyone is appeased.

    This is also true ( no bikinis, no naked ) with previous Dakkar Unlimited "stuff to beat up" sets ( 2006/2007 products but very beautiful and useful today. High tech squads, zombies, ninjas and WW2 German, robots and sci-fi armor suads. 48 beautiful different figures for each set ).

    This last product is very well "packaged". Nice cover, very good statement. Clear and complete instructions. 92 different figures with front and back art ( it is not so hard, was it? ). Realistic poses and good design. Characters links to the original HK supplements, for each figure. And two page game statistics sheet for characters who did not yet have their prior statistics' sheet .

    Perfect. No lacks.

    In the hordes of paper 'standee' miniatures now coming onto the market, the contemporary/near future genre has been rather neglected... until now. This product is worthy of consideration by anyone running contemporary, near future or cyberpunk games, and ties in well if you play the Hot Chicks RPG as many of the figures are drawn directly from some of the supplements.

    The nice thing is that although quite a few of the female figures think a vest or sports bra is sufficient upper wear in combat situations, nothing here is overtly pornographic, so even if Hot Chicks puts you off as being a bit too 'adult' for your gaming table, these figures will be fine. Another nice thing is that each figure is referenced back to where the character they depict appears in a Hot Chicks book, so that if you are using them you can select appropriate miniatures. The few which don't have full game statistics in the books they appear in have them here, an added bonus if you are playing Hot Chicks.

    If you need SWAT-team style troopers there are quite a few of these. There is also a nice doggie, Dougie, the Ghost-Sniffin’ Hound - the profile looks like a Doberman Pinscher, must go and look him up in The Last Ghost Hunt to see if he is a pinchie. Although most of the figures are armed to the teeth, there are some civilians there as well, a nice variety overall.

    Good construction notes are included, although it seems quite straightforwards (sorry, out of printer paper so I haven't tried them yet!). A nice set in a genre not well covered.
