My lance for Kyra was also slightly bent and the material its made of ISNT as susceptible to the boiling water trick as the less dense bones.  That said, I held it IN boiling water for a good couple of minutes (2-3)  and it did straighten a bit and become SLIGHTLY more pliable.  So i would recommend immersing it in a full boil for a couple of minutes and then try again. Even then if yours is heavily bent you might not have much luck.

 

Overall I really like Kyra and Laverath... it underwent the bones transition really well. 

Oh yeah, besides the flag, I love the model. In a worst case scenario, I'll just swap it for a weapon.

Reaper sells those little flags in tin too. If you wanted to keep the flag.

I made flags for my ship (link in signature) by sandwiching triangles of fabric saturated with gloss acrylic medium between rollers made from chopsticks and allowing them to dry.  They've held up well.

So somebody on the Kickstarter comments said the Australian hub updated their FB page to say they will be ready to ship in July. 

 

Is this true?

I don't know if May is any better for you, but I'm working on getting miniature painting classes at MarCon in Columbus, Ohio

 

Mid- to late  May could work. We usually finish in the first week. Also, Ohio is closer to me. :-) Only about 8 hours. I've never heard of Marcon before. I should look into it. For that matter, I don't know why I've never bother going to Origins.

Origins is the only Con I go to anymore. Last year, I could only go for a day, and wound up placing in Reaper's Speed Paint. I couldn't come back for round 2, however. Only going for one day again this year, not sure if it's worth trying again.

Yep, it is being posted out by Aetherworks, and they updated yesterday saying they expected to receive the container in July.  Nothing about how long shipping would be after that.

I got a metal colander I put in the pot, to keep the minis off the bottom when I boil them.  I want them water hot, not heating element hot; my ebonwing's wing has a permanent dent in it from not being careful

Yeah... As much as the packaging is beautiful, and it is, storage is a bit of an issue...

Just means you have to assemble and paint it.  For storage!

I'd offer to swap but I already glued it together.  My box was brown.

Received my wave 2 package in Michigan last night, only 15 pounds, I don't know how the rest of you do it. 

 

Overall pleased. The froghemoth is great. Goremaw, Ogre Command Fire Giant Jailor all came out great as I expected. It seems like many of the new pieces have a slightly heavier, sturdier, more opaque resin. There is a decent amount of flashing and flimsyiness on the characters in the core but oh well they were mostly going to be dumped in the choose a new PC bin anyway. 

 

The new rigid bonsium is nice, I like the option for weapon mods, and swords are pretty terrible on regular bones. But the downside is the detail is meh. Other colors would have been cute, but I am glad I didn't spend the money.

 

I think I could have used one more big dragon but it probably would just get dusty with the rest of the ones I have.

 

Really a great kickstarter to stock up on large baddies, giants, ogres, yeti, oni etc.

 

And for anyone who didn't get Titans of the Tide, you are missing out. The coral golem is a wonderful sculpt and the shipwreck golem is HUGE!.

I think I should have gotten that one in retrospect.

      After the success of the first campaign for 16th century Knights I'm now expanding my 28mm Renaissance range with charging mounted Knights!
      These new Knights will have couched lances or be using hand weapons on galloping horses.
      Further I have reworked the figures from the first Knights campaign to make them easier to assemble, they now have sockets to attach the hands and heads. There are also some revised poses and new heads.
      Sets one-three painted so you can get a feel for how these figures can look. Please note these sets are being revised and pictures of the new ones will be added as the campaign continues. These figures are in the popular 28mm scale and will fit well with figures such as Perry miniatures, they can be used for many periods and settings in the 16th century but also for fantasy collections.
      Please note that the figures are unpainted and require assembly they are not toys for children. Also the figures shown still have minor refinements to be made before casting.
      My figures have been highly researched and are packed with details, I have tried to give many of them an explosive sense of movement. Every mounted knight figure comes with a choice of two heads and two plumes the horses are all separate from the riders and all nessesary weapons are included. This means you can customise your figures to create a very unique collection.
      if you back the campaign you will receive you figures at a 25% discount of normal website prices, which means that for the campaign a pack of two mounted Knights cost £15
      Also if the main campaign is a succes as a stretch goal the first pikemen figures will be released...these figures will be in full forward motion with levelled pikes. They can be used for either Landsknechts or Swiss pike.

      In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.
       
      Spirit Island is a cooperative, settler-destruction strategy game for 1 to 4 players designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players are different spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Work with your fellow spirits and the native islanders to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.
       

       
      This game was playtested at some of my Fourth of July parties, and though I haven't had a chance to play it yet myself, the game comes highly recommended.
       
      The interesting bit here is that you play neither the Invaders nor the Inhabitants of the island, but the spirits trying to alter the balance of power in defense of the Inhabitants themselves.

      There may or may not be IP issues with this one.
