Hello here again. I am a returning player to Guild Ball, as last time resources were too short to play 3 games at the same time i had to drop GB and was upset about that situation. However, I was following news closely. Now came a time to return to my Butchers and rebuy them from nothing. I was at first very opposed to Kick Off! and PVC minis in general. Having wargame background and loving the detailed minis SFG were releasing at the time i quit, which was before vOx was released i was upset about the move to more of a board game feel. Now i know its perks all to well, but this post is not about that. So for my first buy back I got the s1 Butchers six player box. You know Ox, Brisket and everything. As i began to put them together, i noticed a huge (for me at least) difference from the same metal minis i have bought some year ago. The mould lines and overall quality was way lower than back then. I mean that You could see all the flash where the form wasnt put just right and some additional flash where there were supposed to be tight open spaces (for example between Brisket legs, or her neck and hair). Have You noticed something simillar, or is it just a case of a bad box and everything is just fine? I started to think, if this is a widespread thing, maybe the new plastic teams, as in fishermen and maybe more, are just to see if it would be better to resculpt and rerelease in plastic, or make new forms, as the old ones are used and starting to lose the sharp detail and overall precision? What do You think GB community?
I have been reading about it and it seems like you would need to treat the PVC in some way....one of the suggested ways is to sand it and to me that sounds like it would destroy the mini's. Will the PVC minis be un-paintable? Has anyone here ever painted PVC Miniatures before? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
