The creatures are fun. This is exactly what I was hoping that DoW would put out.

I love the creatures - especially the Hydra. Now, why did FFG feel they needed creature 'updated rules'?

Expensive.

However, that said, sending the ferocious Hydra into battle, or fighting against the beast, hacking the heads off, mid-battle, proves to be extremely thrilling!

The scenarios, so far, are excellent. The creatures themselves add some nice variety to the game. I rather like the Hydra, specifically. It's not necessarily exceptional in combat, but it adds some fun and (more) uncertainty to the game, and is no more vulnerable than any other monster - perhaps less so.

Pricey but for someone late to the battlelore party the new creatures are welcome.

Despues de probar todas las criaturas, me parece que el Elemental es el más poderoso, cometí el error de mandar a Hydra sola a la pelea y es facil vencerla cuando es rodeada por el enemigo

A hydra, a giant and a spider. Nicely implemented but hardly necessary...

Played once, using the Giant figure to represent the Hill Giant. Stupid giant never got in melee range... grumble, grumble... lucky archers... Need to play again, with more creatures!

I probably never would have acquired this, but I found it for a cheap price. I didn't own the promo creatures before, so these are three fresh monsters for me. They look pretty neat!

The creatures are always a lot of fun to play with. I like the addition of new creatures, and am happy to play with them.

However, the new set of creature rules should have come with this expansion in addition to a creature FAQ and the (very short) rules that do come with it. This expansion feels rushed, and I imagine this one was a quick cash grab by FFG to bring some money back into the company after the aquisition of the Battlelore franchise. Sadly, while I'm happy to pay for the creatures and cards, I find the poorly thought out and executed rules and package to be rather lacking overall. I am rating this expansion based on the additional creatures and fun, but I hope FFG gets a proper handle on the Battlelore franchise, because half baked expansions like this simply aren't good enough (and I mean execution - not content, I am fine with the quantity of content - and yes that means the three creatures - but the rules and cards that come with it could have been better thought out considering the whole game).

As an addition - I absolutely love the final scenario in the Creatures set - that makes use of the various other Battlelore expansions. Fantastic FFG! A great addition for owners of the older expansions!

Not super effective as single units, I find this set was a chance at grabbing more cash by recyling units already out there. Overall, I think they could have provided new sculpts instead.
