Now that I have some terrain, it's time to look at which set of rules I should use. I already have a bunch of (sadly, unpainted) miniatures. As I am a slow painter, I want to build a posse for a particular set of rules so I only have a few models to paint at a time.
I have been playing GW games since the late 90's,and more recently LOTR so I'm leaning towards LOTOW.
However, it might be fun to learn another set of rules like TRWNN. I lined up two posses and tried out the rules by my self the other day. They seemed pretty straightforward and I really liked the randomness of turning cards.
For ease of use and comfort, I'll probably end up mainly using LOTOW. So now it's time to start digging through my minis and build two posses.
I have never before worked with resin materials, so I did a bit of research on what to do. Apparently, when casting a resin model, some manufacturers place a mold release agent between the mold and the resin that is poured in. As the name states, this releases the resin casting from the mold. Before assembly, you should quickly wash the resin pieces in luke-warm water with a bit of soap in it. This removes anything which may prevent your glue from adhering or the undercoat from going on smoothly.
I filled a plastic container with dish detergent and luke-warm water and submerged the pieces for a few seconds.
Then I rinsed each piece and dried them off and then left the pieces to sit for a while to dry further.
