77415 Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too.

 

I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz?

 

I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.

Here a few pics of the Corim I have, and the other photo I was able to find.

 

Looking closely at the picture of Corim facing the camera, it is possible to see there is actually an indentation where the nose should be.

If there is a defect in manufacture, we would be happy to offer a replacement Corim.

 

Simply contact [email protected], and include the relevant model name, your kickstarter order number (or email if you don't know the number) and an address to ship the replacement. If you have no kickstarter data, that's ok, too, we can still take care of you it just takes us a little longer (like 5 minutes more, not days).

Thanks, Bryan! I certainly will follow up.

 

I also wanted to make sure you wonderful folks at my favorite miniatures company are aware of a potential defect. Reaper is a great company with a product I have solidly relied on for years, so I like to do what I can to help maintain that level of quality.

 

Thanks, also, for your quick attention and excellent customer service.

I got the metal version to represent my gnome illusionist, such a nice little figure, and the features are so fine, glad you'll be getting the figure you deserve FLF.

It's a great mini, with a lot of character. Just enough detail, with a lot of opportunities for for freehand and/or conversion work.

 

I received my replacement miniature! It's the metal version, which is perfectly fine.

 

I hope the defect is not a problem, or at least, not an insurmountable one, throughout the entire run of the Bones version of this particular mini.

 

Thanks, Reaper! Well done!

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      This finally gave me something to use my larger Games Workshop skulls on. I may try to give his hair another highlight of something brighter, as it looks pretty dull at the moment. A fun evil mage that I hope to use as a boss battle one day.
