What is the different between resin and plastic Warlord Games Bolt Action tanks.

Plastic are basically a plastic model kit, the resin are resin hulls and turrets with white metal main guns and other bits. Not sure what, if any, size difference there is.

Also, and this is more a matter of taste, but I think that the plastic models carry detail better. Nevertheless, if all are painted to the same standard and style, they all go well together.

Their plastics tend to be $10 USD to $15 USD cheaper. The resin are approaching $50 USD!
The plastics are consistently high quality. The resins vary from great to abysmal. I've gotten some resin stuff that was perfect in every detail and some of the older stuff that was warped, flashy, out of alignment etc.
I've only gone with the plastics for years now. Some of my friends still purchase resin stuff (on sale only).
Scale wise, WL matches almost perfectly with Perry Miniatures and Blitzkrieg Miniatures. That's vehicle wise. Infantry is a whole 'nother discussion.

Some tanks only come in resin, but if there is a choice go plastic for reasons given above.

I have had issues with resin kits. Warlord has good customer service and rectified the errors, but I never even had issues with the plastic kits.
