Rakumi posted a topic in Bones Miniatures & Legendary EncountersA few of my dragons that I have based (unpainted) have started to bend downward. Particularly the tall upright dragons standing on 2 legs. Some have even gotten to the point of their heads touching the floor. Bones material conforms to gravity overtime. Have any of you had this happen? What do you do about it?
I'm having trouble with two minis in particular (I'll post pictures if people are interested) having a "memory" for their weapons being bent in a particular way. Specifically it is one of the Barrow Wardens (the one with the greatsword, 77346,) and the Kobold captain (one of the kobold sprue, 77350.) The Barrow Warden's blade is at about a 30 degree angle from the middle, and the haft of the Kobold's mace is bent really over. I've tried boiling them for about a minute, holding the weapon right, and plunging them in iced water for quite some time. This "fixes" the problem in the temporary sense, but with the slightest provocation it will return to its bent shape. In the kobold's case I've even done this multiple times, it doesn't seem to help - the plastic has a "memory" that it should be bent. Now, for the kobold I have good options - I can turn the mace into a flail, perhaps. That would even be pretty cool. But for the Barrow Warden his sword is way too nice to replace - I love the shape of it and it is covered with runes. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas? I'm thinking about trying to "train" it - forcing the Barrow Warden's sword to lay flat for literally days. I'll let you know if this helps at all, but I'd love to hear about other people's experiences. I've had similar trouble with "Garric the Bold" from Bones I - he leans over at the ankles. A boil and ice bath fixed him, but he soon took up his old habits again...
