    Nice idea, don't give up trying, but I was Disappointed, artwork was poor and it was too fiddly to make in a reasonable amount of time.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Nice idea, don't give up trying<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: I was Disappointed, artwork was poor and it was too fiddly to make in a reasonable amount of time.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Poor<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>

    Wow. This product is toss. And it hurts me to say so, really it does because I really wanted it to work. I love the idea, the concept is pure gold. But the execution is severly lacking.

    Basics:

    The resolution of the image could be better, you'd probably never notice on a table top but the image is not stunning.

    Instructions, actually stop before you are done making the model. Now granted the last steps are not hard to figure out but come on guys, that is clearly a mistake but it makes you look like rookies.

    Details:

    Fidly? Do you think!? I don't know, maybe I've got fat fingers and I am not fit for paper modelling put the annoyingly intricte cutting out - on card stock no less as per reccomendation, is nothing short of painful. Getting little paper locks to fit together was consistently deeply frustrating - I couldn't even get the head to go together - I'd have needed tweesers and four hands for that. Glueing instructions - although apparently not needed, were sparse.

    The base construction, while cunning in design I've got to wonder what was wrong with just making a box, that is easy and feet tabs could be glued within and the miniature even weighted with a coin for those that felt it useful.

    The arms - again way fiddly and would it have been so terribly hard to have a print pattern on both sides?

    The legs - perhaps my cardstock was too heavy, but 'rolling' them tight enough took some effort, and something to roll them around, a tip that I was surprised was not in the instructions.

    The instructions - start great and then faulter. Once you hit the torso and head the useful pictures and clear descriptions dry up to be replaced with vague instructions and just one picture each.

    The end result - hard to say, I haven't really finished one, couldn't get the head together properly and putting it altogether proved near impossible. I can't imagine these thing will be robust when put together. I speculate that putting a dozen or so in a box for tranpsort would not be wise.

    The final effect - these guys lack the beauty of a real mini, and although once you practice a bit I guess you could put them together fairly quickly, my attempt certainly wasn't, having once been in the mini painting club I wonder how much difference there is between an experinced quick painter and an experiencd quick modeller. And they also lack the simple efficiency of paper stand up mini's. In the time it took me put one kinda together I could have had 14 or so 'regular' paper minis finished.

    2 models on the page and a whole lot of white space. And the two guys didn't even have a slight variation on the colours used. I mean anyone with a coloured pen or gosh almighty photoshop skills could create variations so you might say be able to make a boss type orc, or be able to visually tell the difference between two units and it would not have been hard to include a couple of variations. And at that few figures per page costs do rise - given these are paper figures after all!

    At the end of the day, from my perspective at least this product sits in a failed middle ground between paper and real minis having none of the strengths (looks pretty / cheap and fast) of either and sharing the weaknesses of both (slow / desetructable).

    It was cheap and a cool idea, it just didn't work. But that doesn't mean it couldn't work...<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: cool concept<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: it failed<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Poor<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br><BR>[THIS REVIEW WAS EDITED]<BR>

    These Miniatures are really great! It is not too difficult to build one model but for the beginning enthusiast it is the best too be a little patient:-)

    The Paper-Orcs look really terrific on the table. In my opinion this is the best way to have some "Semi 3D" Paper Minaitures.

    I really hope there will be more some day ( the sooner the better :-)! ) What about Cavalry, Archers, Pikemen? I am looking forward to see some Elves, Human, Ogres etc. Pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaasee - give us more of those miniatures....beg

    To make this product EXCELLENT there should be more than two Miniatures on one sheet of paper but that is just one very small thing to complain about.

    First I want to say, this is an awesome fold-up model. I had lots of fun putting dozens of these together. I really hope they put out more of these soon! These are a great middle ground between flat paper stand-ups and 3d minis. My only wish was that more fit onto a single page, but thats just a minor thing well over shadowed by how great these are.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
