An Iridium flare is a specific type of satellite flare (also known as satellite glint) made when the antennas of an Iridium communications satellite reflects sunlight directly onto the surface of the Earth. Whoever is looking at the right spot at the right time will see a brief, but bright flare in the sky which is sometimes brighter than Venus and even the Moon (when it's not full).

Maybe this was already known by everyone else, but I had not realized that the CROM! (Conan, Rise of Monsters) miniature battles game was going to include terrain pieces designed by Reaper. When I got the pics from Gen Con I had thought that the terrain pieces were just take nice set dressing.
The Elephant statue, Snake statue, and possibly the Temple are all set pieces your will be able to get when the game has its Kickstarter. (All pictured in this post from pics taken at Gen Con)
Apparently there may be other pieces as well.
I'm pretty stoked to get more cool terrain features for gaming!
