Mighty Conjurations look cool and Im sure more will come but I think it wouldve been better if they sold these individually so players can customize their collection to suit their spell caster. Otherwise too expensive for me to justify buying in a set.

Halaster’s Tumultuous Templates to me seems ridiculous; because wet & dry erase markers arent good enough?

Didn’t WizKids already release a box with some of these effects in it? Spiritual Weapon and Bigby’s Hand were in there, and there was another set for Wall of Fire and Wall of Ice. Are these part of the same series?

Hmmm. Not a purchase for me thought they look good. That force wall thing looks just like the container you get dice in (which we use a lot). Many of these are for spells that don't even hang around. Don't see the point of a pretty fireball template when you hover over minis for a second and then take away again?

But templates are better than measuring everything. I am not a fan of spells being so based on geometry full stop though. I mushc prefer 13thAge's approach.

Some of them, yes. But this is WizKids, they'll re-use sculpts over & over & over again. Paint it a different color & call it something else. Some of those are pulled from the D&D/PF figure lines.

Minis for ropetrick and flaming sphere are pretty useful. But for one shot spells such as burning hands or fear? That seems like a waste of plastic. Many of these do not have any value being indicated visually on a map, and in fact get in the way of play.

Yeah, some are great, some are rather useless. I did my own web spell template recently and rather like it.

But these things are too expensive IMO. $60 for the spell templates, I guess that's $6 each. Not terrible but I don't think they'll get used that often. You'd use one or two of them regularly but the others, no. But hell, all miniatures are expensive so this is no different, but I'm sure a cheaper option is out there instead of hard plastic.
 
Well I would rather always go DIY (also because I use Lego minis which are larger in scale), but I must say these look quite nice.
