Soft plastic

Short Post. I started assembling the models and discovered that the plastic used is a softer plastic than I'm used to working with (in comparison with Privateer Press). While there is hardly any flash and very little mold lines, there was some minor clean up, and I discovered that you have to be careful when using an Exacto blade. This can also be a positive thing though, because it doesn't take much to clean the lines.

  1. I had a problem in the opposite direction. I've gotten spoiled by Wyrd's softer plastics. Now I'm working on their special translucent materials from the Black Friday sale. A bit harder plastic, and any errant scuffs from the blade are going to be far more noticeable if I don't end up painting over them (as they are tournament legal without any paint on them, I may or may not end up painting them at all).
