As promised here is a short review with new Cipher Studio releases :)

First come new miniatures. The boxes are redesigned. Single miniatures come in blisters and not in boxes. I think everyone liked previous boxes, there was always a nice painting on front and a big reference photo at the back. Now there is nothing :(
Figure cards also has been changed - the paper is softer, which doesn't sound good for a gamer.

New djin... well it is a bit of disappointment. I thought it would be bigger. The metal quality is very much the same. Mould lines are the same as always 8)

And so are pack boxes, everything together. But the sponges are thick, so I think it wasn't much flying around. Apart from one weapon that was bent a bit ;)

Last, but not least the rulebook! I have been waiting 2 years for it, so I will just give you facts - soft cover, 222 pages, tons of color pictures. The structure is following: game description and story, rules, miniature statistics (without new djin and Zaxan), scenarios and terrain rules.
Paper quality is very good, hard to describe but it is very shiny :)

My personal opinion is that it has been really worth waiting so many months/years for getting something that good! Hell Dorado is a very original addition to miniature world and with rulebook finally released I hope the gaming community will grow.

I must say the new packaging of the boxes looks a bit on the cheap side considering how it was before.
I suppose the rulebook is just an updated version of what we used to have with no big changes so the game is prolly as good as it was before which was great!

Looks like pretty much the same product as 4 years (was it that long?) ago, which is good, in a way.

Rulebook looks splendid indeed!

Thank you for this review.
