Shieldwolf Miniatures War 2.5 (relaunch)

According to DHL I was supposed to get Shieldwolf stuff today, but now that I'm looking at the DHL page and trying to figure out why it's still not here, all I see is that it's in customs review. Supposedly in Greece. Not sure whether that's actually accurate or not. Hmmm.

Mine is scheduled to get here on Mon. But I got my mammoths some time ago and like those, this will just get checked and put away.

Oof, bait and switch by DHL! Minis are still in Athens. And not Georgia... well, I'm still looking forward to these. Sounds like they'll be awesome when they do eventually arrive!

Well if my camera would have held out for a few more minutes on the first video I would have described the amount of armour on the models (it's about three quarters cover compared to the 40% to two thirds it looked like in the concept art). I like the fact that their armour looks scavenged, borrowed and recycled. It makes them look more barbaric (although apparently they've really got something against upper arm protection).

 

They are big girls standing head and shoulders above the previous three Shieldmaiden heroines that Patrick Keith sculpted. I haven't checked the other resin heroines for size yet. I've built 3 and dry fitted them on bases (to see how they'd rank up). Basically individually they'll fit on 20mm bases but if you want them to rank up it's going to be a real squeeze and you'll have to be careful how you position the arms (probably all up in the air). If you put the on 25mm bases they'll probably rank up quite easily (still need to be careful with a few weapon tips and cloaks 'though). It wouldn't make a very interesting video with me holding things in front of the camera with my hands getting in the way of whatever I'm holding while I babble about bases sizes. I could try lying them down with their feet positioned on the bases to show spacing. The hollow recess in the Freebooter bases makes it easier to balance a figure lying down on the base. I did wonder if the hollow bases (being almost ankle deep on them) is intended to conceal the height a little - especially if you fill it with the remnants of my old tub of Citadel Snow Flock.

According to my text from DHL, my kit was supposed to arrive on the 20th with signature confirmation.  Similar story to some others...nothing came, and when I checked the detailed tracker, it was still in Greece.  But also labeled on schedule, so who knows.

I've continued to track mine. So far it's left Leipzig and is on its way to Cincinnati! 

 

(would not have pegged Cincy as a DHL hub, but the more you know...)

      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.
