The figurines are back!
October 20, 2013
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!

I know as a GoaT community guy that I’m biased, but imho those figurines look really terrific. Seeing as how real-scale their bones are, along with the great dramatic pose, I can understand now why they needed a lot of care in packing them.

wow they came out pretty amazing. I wish I had the funds to have gotten one of those back when this was campaigning. *cry* Congrats to all that are getting these. Hopefully people post pics of them on the shelf! 🙂

Is there no way to get one of these for someone who missed out on the campaign? 🙂

Although for the time being they remain a limited series tied to the campaign, they could possibly become available in the shop at some point in the future. But I really couldn’t say when, sorry…

Really AMAZING! I had seen hundreds of figurines thanks to my hobby (painting fantasy war-game miniatures) and these seems really detailed and evil 😉 great sculpt work
