This morning another package appeared. This time an order from a different top manufacturer and unfortunately, a different kettle of fish - with prominent mould seams and mould slippage on figures in several packs that has just turned me off the entire range. My confidence in the manufacturer's products is now shaken and if I can't be sure of the quality of what I'm buying, I dont buy, regardless of how beautifully painted the minis might be on the website.
Now, I accept a degree of cleaning the miniatures may be required - it's de rigeur - because obviously moulding and casting technology hasn't progressed at all since 1979 - has it? But what I cannot stand or accept in any shape or form is mould slippage where the two halves of a miniature are misaligned.
I'm off to take some photos for the manufacturer and maybe the blog, before I hammer the suckers into oblivion to vent my frustration. Maybe you would like a video of these figures being hammered flat.
