Yes! Getting miniatures back to their original shape is actually quite easy, despite the potential and unfortunate misshaping during packaging and shipping.
WARNING, please read the following before attempting: Attempt this at your own risk. krakenships is not responsible for any injuries to yourself or others or damages to krakenships miniatures or other miniatures via this method. The following method requires being careful and taking the proper safety measures when working with hot or boiling water. When manipulating and transporting any miniature in and out of hot water, use tongs or another method that does not put you in danger of being burned and that does not risk damaging the miniature. When a miniature is dipped into very hot water, it will become malleable and can be unintentionally altered if you are not careful. The hot water can damage the miniature if left for too long, use this method sparingly to avoid damaging or destroying your miniatures.
Having a miniature go back to it’s proper shape is as simple as dipping the miniature into very hot water for 5-10 seconds and then immediately dipping it into ice cold water for 5-10 seconds. The hot water will allow the miniature to bend back to it’s proper shape and the cold water will re-harden miniature. If the shape does not reset, you may have to assist the miniature to bending to the desired shape once out of the hot water and then holding it in place for dipping into the ice cold water.

Currently, krakenships only sells and ships to the United States. Once the company has grown, krakenships will begin to ship to other countries. There are currently krakenships products sold in Australia and EU. We’re working to get more countries and locations selling our miniatures. We’re also working on providing worldwide shipping from our site and will be shipping internationally sometime in early to mid 2020. International shipping from krakenships.com will not be shipping friendly, meaning any customs, duties, or VAT will need to be covered by the buyer as per our current plan for international shipping.
Excellent! Please contact us via email at [email protected] and we’ll go from there.
