Hot Dudes 01

Hey guys, these dudes are hot!

I bought three copies. About performance: They do what they are supposed to. About pricepoint/quality: While I can get more realistic models, I can't do that for $1.56 a man.

So if you need stuff to beat up, Dakkar got them. My 2₵: I suppose dakkar can release the hot dude artbook, or I will have to make it for myself.

As it is, this is a great standalone product.

Irrespective of your interest in Dakkar's "Hot Chicks: The RPG", the company have provided a real service to gamers by producing a large range of near-future printable paper "A"-frame standees in recent years, helping to fill an area that oddly remains something of a blank for such paper minis otherwise. This set has a useful mix of well-muscled male humans (in one case, apparently heavily steroid-infused!), all with full front and back artwork views, in Dakkar's usual near-realistic CGI style.

The poses here are all quite similar and rather static, but for most figures, there are various clothing options, sometimes from underwear/swimwear up to full body armour/spacesuits for the same named character. Few have weapons shown or held, and all these aspects increase their utility greatly, since you're not trapped into having minis who habitually use a different main weapon to what they're drawn with, or shown in "action" poses that character might never adopt in game terms. This also means the figures can be used easily as player characters or NPCs - such as shop mannequins, heroes, villains, innocent bystanders, etc. - and in a wide variety of settings.

Technically, Dakkar's paper minis are on the small side, if compared with the commoner 28/30mm-scale standees, though they're actually designed to be 25mm scale anyway. The PDF page can of course by resized before printing, and the artwork is good enough to cope with enlargement into the circa 30mm figure range without problems. If doing this using the whole page however, you'll lose a few minis near the edges. Most of the figures print out fine, with just a few a little too dull and muddy, and only one whose white clothing blends into the white card sheet background.

Overall, a good, useful set for its intended period.

I received this with a free package. It would rank less with a fee.

First let me say that this is a pack has excellent artwork.
It is up there with Arion Games.
Second, I found a few really useful figures in this pack.
On the flipside though, I found an incredible number of figures ready to go to the mall or the gym.
I play miniature combat games and too few of these gentlemen looked combat-ready.
As a result the set was a disappointment.
If your game's rules provide for the trip to the mall, gym visits or other like environments, you should buy this set.

The art and the concept is actually quite good. The problem, as with most standees, is that they are way, way, way too small. I wish the folks that create these would realize that sets like these usually end up side by side with miniatures such as Heroclix. They're great for "filler", or people in the streets. But these would look ridiculous next to any modern miniature.

Bought to mix in with my Arion Games sets. For the most part these were good models. Some were a little less dressed then needed. You get quite a few on a single page. They do print a little smaller the the Arion sets but with some tweaks they came out just about right. These are a bit more costly then those other sets, but you do get more then twice as many models. So over all I think they were worth it.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied
