I seperated the different brands of minis last year. They accepted most any high tin, low lead minis. It was the 'clank' sound and not the 'thunk' that really made the difference, that and the 'write' test - the mini should not
make an acceptable pencil. If you seperate, if there is an issue, then everything is together. Speeds things up for those in line behind you to
Strip the paint if you can (be kind rewind) as burning the stuff off in the melt pot stinks to high heaven and some paint fumes are not all that good to breath.
Reaper is offering a WONDERFUL service with this at RCon and we should all do what we can to make it easier on them to continue to provide it.
If you are not part of the solution...
You're part of the precipitate.
