Demolition Corps bases

This is what I am doing for my Demolition Corps. The big Man O War models have just enough base size to get some interesting detail on there. I wanted the unit to look like it is crossing a barbed wire line. This is the most action posed of the unit the rest aren't quite as creative. The models were a complete horror to work with. I don't know what type of plastic this is but it took me easily three times long to get these assembled and cleaned than a metal unit. The plastic just doesn't clean up nicely. I use a blade to clean off mould lines and when used here it tore the mould line leaving a ragged strip of plastic behind. Using my files, not of the highest quality I admit, didn't help either. That started to damage the surface surrounding the line rather than polishing it. I finally used a combination of the knife and some dental tools and this managed to get them decently clean. I really am not looking forward to the next set of Privateer Press plastics.... I am hoping I somehow got a bad batch.

  2. yeah i've had problems with their plastics too. my problems have mostly been with priming them though. if i use anywhere near the amount of primer that i would normally use on metal or GW plastics it creates a super smooth surface that paint just doesn't want to stick to.

    Also bases are looking great so far, both this and the green stuff sandbags.

  3. I hope the plastic 'jacks and warbeasts are better as I haven't worked with them so far.
