MALICE TOMBS: STARTER SET REVIEW

Every time I open a new Package sent by Dark Arts Miniatures, I am always surprised at how much I love them!

After using the tomb set for a couple of months now I can say without a doubt that the Dark Arts Miniatures Malice Tomb Set is the best set I’ve used. The size of the pieces, being 25mm square, make it extremely easy to build out a nice-sized tomb complete with coffin and foreboding statue, platforms, and other interesting scenery. Adding the accessories and doors and other extensions can help you create literally millions of tombs or dungeons.

My primary intent for the tomb set is to run fantasy DND style games. However, they have been put to use in other settings and a few sets together can make some great games of Zone Mortalis. Beyond that, however, I was able to use the set immediately in my Rifts game, all of the players remarked at the detail of the set.  On how much crisper and detailed it is compared with the likes of Hirst arts and Dwarven Forge.

This highly detailed resin Starter Set is great for DM’s to use as encounter layouts.  It is also ideal for those wanting to try out the range or acting as a solid core for you to expand on.  Each square measures 25 x 25mm representing 5ft sq and is suitable for miniature scales 25-28mm but can also be used up to 32mm. 

The Malice RPG Starter Set includes the following pressure cast, polyurethane resin components:

Double stone door x1
Archway x1
Doorway with stone door x1
Room tile 4x4 x1
Room tile 2x2 x1
Room tile quarter x2
4x4 Feature room tile x1
Passageway tile 2x1 x2
Passageway tile 2x2 x2
Passageway tile 2x4 x1
1x1 corner A x2
1x1 corner B x2
Corner A x2
Corner B x2
Curved corner x2
Feature wall B x1
1x1 sq wall A x1
1x1 sq wall B x1
2x1 wall A x2
2x1 wall B x2
2x1Wall C x2
1x4 wall x2
Lords casket with lid x1

The set also includes ‘The Awoken of Dwar Ri An’ mini adventure suitable for most RPG’s. It gives a great atmosphere to the terrain and also serves as a guide on what kinds of layouts can be made with the sets.

At only $49.99 for the Starter Set, that’s a great bargain for any role-playing game working out at around affordable £1.00 per piece.  When I use them, however, there is no doubt that they are built to last, my group has even tested the by stamping and jumping on the tiles and they are still intact.

The creator of Dwarven Forge. once made a  bold statement that Dwarven Forge is the best 3D dungeon models in the world. I beg to disagree.  The quality of these tiles shine through, and with the sheer cost of importing Dwarven forge to the UK, you could literally fill a whole table with Tomb tiles for the same cost of a single set of Dwarven Forge.

Overall if you are looking to invest in some RPG tiles look no further than Malice Tiles.
