Dungeon Saga – What’s in the Box Part 2

Yesterday I went through the main components that you find in the Dungeon Saga core game (its here is you want a read) so today I want to finish off my mini review by looking at the miniatures you get in the game.

The miniatures can be  sorted into 4 lots, which are

  1. Furniture
  2. Heroes
  3. Villains
  4. Monsters

in all cases the mini’s are plastic and come ready assembled.

The Heroes, villains and monsters all come on grey square bases usually 25mm in size (although some are on 50mm wide bases due to their size) and generally the quality is ok but some models need a bit of work to help them stand up properly.

The Heroes

there are 4 heroes in the game and they are produced in a dark blue colour which does hide some of the detail, here’s a group shot

Orlaf – Human Barbarian

Rordin – Dwarf Fighter

Madriga – Elf Ranger

Danor – Human Wizard

The Villains

next up we have the 4 Villains in the game these are produced in a grey colour which does show the detail better and as before a group shot

Mortibris – Necromancer

Grund – Undead Dwarf King

Elshara – A Banshee

Hoggar – Zombie Troll Shaman

The Monsters

The majority of the models in the game are monsters (as you’d expect) and these are produced in a yellow colour here’s the breakdown of them

Zombie Trolls – you get 2 of these on 50mm square bases

Ghosts – again 2 of these on the standard bases

Skeleton Warriors and Armoured Zombies – 2 each of these

More skeleton warriors and archers – again 2 each of these (one of them needs a dip in boiling water to straighten up)

Zombies – because everything is better with zombies

and finally  2 Dwarf Revenants

and to complete the unboxing here’s the terrain that comes in the core game, which consists of tables, barrels, chests (with separate lids so you know which ones have been opened) plus lots of other stuff including some very nice doors

lastly I also got a free miniature of an alternative version of Mortibris the necromancer that’s cast in metal and is a lovely model

all in all I’ve really pleased with the components in this game, whilst the models could have been better I think they are good value and will be useful in other games. I’ll probably paint up a few of them to see what they look like but I’m not unhappy with anything in this box.

I’m hoping to play a game this week so will report back on my findings with the game mechanics
