Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ. The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black) I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters. Im a slow painter. I decided to pick a few out to paint. I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed. replaced it Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly. Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining. Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues. I would show pics but I dont wanna... My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures, Are they being cast in this new grey material?
I am a huge fan of Reaper paints and miniatures. I've collected many metal Reaper minis now and have bought big into each Bones Kickstarter. But I want to request that Reaper consider changing the type of plastic used for the smaller miniatures with thin weapons or other parts, especially swords, spears, etc. I know the hot/cold water treatment can help, but it is still difficult to get some weapons to be really straight on the smaller minis with long thin weapons. I have recently seen other companies produce nice plastic miniatures that felt sturdy enough not to easily break, but stiff enough to hold the straight pointy shape on long thin swords and spears. So I would urge Reaper to consider varying the material used for some Bones miniatures. With respect to larger miniatures, or even small miniatures lacking long thin weapons or parts, I have no such concerns and find Bones to be a great material, especially for the very big miniatures that would be way too heavy for comfort and way too expensive in metal.
I recently found an aspect or quality of, the word escapes me right now, of the bones material that i think is quite underrated: they are not particularily painful to step upon with bare feet. Especially when compared to metal minis, also known as caltrops. (Or even legoes...) I am happy to report that the mini survived the stomp attack, and the foot came away with only minor smarting that did not last all that long.
