Perhaps you remember reading the announcement when the Fjord Dragon was released?
But What's in the Box?
Here's the small and very sturdy box that arrived in the mail from Badger Games.
After slicing the tape and tugging at the cardboard, I've opened it – I don't think I've ever seen colored bubblewrap before! This is very well packaged for shipping.
And emerging from the bubblewrap is the Fjord Dragon, in a ziploc bag with cardboard label stapled on, and a business card from Badger Games.
And here are the parts, cast in a slightly flexible gray resin. There's no assembly instructions, but this seems straightforward: body, tail, two wings, four legs, two horns.
The components fit together using location pins and holes, to ensure the correct fit. However, pins are delicate, so there are usually extra resin to project the pins in shipping (and, in many cases, as pouring points when casting the resin) – these pin-protecting bits will need to be trimmed off.
You'll need to cut the horns out, then they have pins which fit into the dragon's head. The body has two pins which insert into the tail piece. You'll need to trim the pin-supports and extra bits on the dragon's chin and end of tail.
The wings connect to distinct shoulders on the dragon's body (one shoulder visible in photo above). After you clean off the pin-support, each wing has one pin to help in attaching it correctly to the holes in the shoulders.
The legs with the 'ground' on them are the back legs; the others are the forelegs. You'll need to trim off the pin-supports, and some extra resin on one back leg. The back legs look to have some freedom in positioning – just be careful both feet end up on the ground. The forelegs fit into the dragon's body and have no freedom as far as posing.
This looks like a well-engineered product suitable for all your fantasy Viking needs.
