This is a quick update on the figurines: they have at last come back from the sculptor’s (Thomas & Elise) who worked on making them a little more sturdy so they are able to survive shipping!
After several tests we’ve found the best way to protect them: we put them in a plastic bag and fill it with what’s called “exfoliated vermiculite”, which is basically powdered/crushed volcanic rocks. That substance is not organic (so it’s fine for international shipping), but it is also very light yet firm enough that it can maintain the figurine safely from all angles and safely absorb the effects of inertia.
Each figurine is numbered and they’ll be shipping early this week. And then an army of undead rats will be unleashed upon the world!
