Unfortunately, this will probably be my toughest review, as well.
First, to start off on a good note, the art is good. There is an interesting mixture of old and new elements, and although I didn't look very closely, I think some, but not the majority are copies from earlier iterations of Cardboard Heroes. The newer assets are somewhat obvious with a more cell-shaded style than the legacy art. There is a good variety of figure art, over 100 elements, each with either a front and back for the standard SM-1 or larger pieces, or a top and bottom for the smaller pieces like rats or floor elements.

without zooming in.
For a more representative picture of how much compression is in this image, look to the right at a hastily blurred and blotted out image. The art behind my red fill paint bucket and smudge tool, I assure you, is fine stuff. But the shimmery vampire sparkles around it irk me. I don't know if it is a matter of being preview material or not, but I hope that the actual printed material in the boxed set isn't as affected and/or that a higher quality PDF is just around the corner.
