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.

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.

I couldn't resist a hydra with detachable heads. I like the idea of creatures on the battlefield; but in the games that I have played, the hydra and especially the rock elemental have dominated the game and created a great imbalance.

The beginning of the end of my BL love affair. FFG is obviously just stringing along BL fans to cash in. Only ever wanted the BL name for Westeros.

The cost for what you get seems too high. $30.00 for three miniatures. Two of which are the exact same models as the previously released promo's Hill Giant and Earth Elemental. Very disappointing for someone like me who had collected everything previously.

Einzig positive an der Erweiterung: Die Hydra, denn die ist neu.

Negativ:

- Gleiche Kreaturen nur mit anderen Eigenschaften
- Keine Deutschsprachige Ausgabe geplant
- Viel zu teuer dafür!

So will ich die dann doch nicht mehr haben.

There is a new card for a different spider "the blue widow". It is mentioned that a figure is not included in the expansion because there is one in the base set however there is one scenario that requires two spiders. The scenario states that an additional base set (which is not available) is required, or just use a giant figure to proxy the spider.
The price is high for the expansion to exclude a figure that is required to play 1/5 of the scenarios.
The final scenario requires several of the other expansions which may or may not be available.
I think that this should be stated on the box.

Even under new stewardship Battlelore continues to disappoint. It looks like another overpriced expansion that give you more of the same. There is only ONE new monster. The Giant and Elemental are renamed and given new powers. Big freaking deal!

The Hyrda is a cool critter. But I'm a bit bummed about the Giant and the Elemental: I already have them. Overall, I wish Heroes, Dragons, and Creatures (along with the Troll figure) had been sold as one boxed expansion at a reduced price from the three individual packs. I think that would have reinvigorated interest in BattleLore and given fans who didn't have the earlier goodies or were chomping at the bit on Heroes a hefty expansion to dwell on. But then I'm a big BattleLore fan and they totally have me pegged!
