To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I struggled putting the clips in and taking them out, even my husband said get the pliers, this is ridiculous. I contemplated keeping for other types of terrain like docks or using the walls doors on top of the matt but these are just not put together well. God forbid you try to attach a piece to an L corner, good luck getting that to work! No, I waited until Feb on a pre order for these, but they are promptly going back, I cannot use something that doesn't work even to assemble it.
Its worth the money visually, definitely a step up from using a grid and paper, but the Warlock clips are durable but are maybe TOO durable. The clips take a while before they work themselves in but they don't break so you can be rough with them there's no doubt about that. What I would suggest is adding magnets to the clips so you can leave the clips in and add the tiles in on the fly and not worry about pulling them apart as hard. This is a great first step and I love the tiles!
The Dungeon Tiles I pack is significantly better as it has larger floor tiles, two 2x2s and two 2x8s, which makes the structures more sturdy and involves less clipping. Yes, the clips are annoying, especially if it the first time you are using them. They do go in all the way but it involves a lot of pushing and twisting. I generally leave mine in when I disassemble and I only use one clip per attachment.
Yes, magnets are vastly superior, but this is good for now and I am sure the patent is expensive.
I know have had these for awhile and one two pieces have been damaged by being rough with the clips and both were easy to repair with glue. I still prefer the big pieces for stability; I generally only use a one or clips per piece except for the large floor pieces.
My six year old loves them and can mostly handle the clips himself. They are annoying but less so after getting used to them.
First off, this product is gorgeous. It's an inexpensive way to build 3D scenes for your battles. This is, by far, a recommended buy. But the included "WarLock" connectors they originally manufactured are awful. Simply awful. There are other reviews which mention this, and it needs to be repeated.
Instead, you should make sure you include the "EZ Clips" connectors in your order. Get as many as you think you need (they're sold in packs of 100). Don't even bother using the included clips unless you hate yourself. But the "EZ Clips" are what they should have released in the first place. With the new clips, assembling a full scene takes mere minutes and looks gorgeous.
Before I found that I did indeed have some of the EZ Clips (from the angle expansion), I was going to rate this product very low; but their re-engineered clips saved their rating. (It would be nice if they would replace the clips on request!)
The Clips are really painful to use, no tool to help make it easier. I love everything else about these warlock tiles sets. My rating is low due to I will NEVER use these clips and were a waste of money for me. There is not even a tool to help with putting them in or taking them out. I will have to just use the tiles without lock clips. I heard they are coming out with EZ clips, but they will more than likely make us pay for them rather than replace the ones that came with the original boxes. Suck a shame I was looking forward to these tiles and bought a lot of them. =(
Bought this to build a standard tavern for gaming, also bought the expansion pack. Looks good, solid stuff, excited to use it. There are just two problems: 1/Snapping more than a couple of pieces together is a nightmare and 2/There are not enough floor pieces and way too many interior wall pieces. I bought the expansion pack to fix this but it has no floor pieces at all. Built the tavern, used up all the floor tiles and have dozens of walls and misc. pieces left. A couple tweaks and this is a great set.
