Just got the game today.

My first impressions:

1. Only 8 figures were bent, and I fixed them in minutes. So don't let that discourage you from buying.

2. I was disappointed with the box fart.

I'll get back to you once I've actually played.

You mean the noise the box makes when you try to shut it too fast?

Yeah. I expected a loud one. Reminscent of a cabbage eruption.

Several of the figures in my set were bent, but I like to think of them as a little drunk on the field.

Strange... My figures were all bent to hell, but my box fart was, and still is, quite hearty and audible from all corners of our crowded friendly game store.

If you missed this, its pretty simple to "unbend" your BattleLore (and Memoir '44) figures. You don't usually even have to really bend them back to shape, after heating somewhat they return to their original shape most of the time.

I had almost 20 bent figures.

I am working on opening and shutting the box with expertise so I can box fart the Overture of 1812.
