I remove them first, because the strip also gets flexible.  Trying to smoosh three goblins plus a sprue into position for cooling seems like a lot of work, and if you don't do that you might warp some stuff anew.  The spear goblin with shield is fond of getting bent out of shape.

Same here.

I left them on, it made it easy to pinch it with needle nose pliers and dip all three.  I also bent the shield and spears as well as there knees before cooling them in ice water so that they would not have the exact same posture as the other three duplicates.  (I got my goblins at a game store, they came in a set of 6 on 2 different sprues.)

I removed and boiled/cooled everything after it was removed from the sprues.  Trying to hold and position one figure when moving from boiling water to the ice bath is more than enough trouble; I didn't need that multiplied by however many figures came on a sprue.

 

Also, since they're Bones, maybe we should change the name from "sprues" to "splints"...  :lol:
