How durable are these 28mm resin figures? Are you seeing snapped ankles and bayonets?

Good evening Flashman, here is Lorenzo from Warlord.
Warlord Resin is a material more flexible than hard plastic, traditional resin or metal
While snapped parts of models might still happen like with any other medium, these are less likely with this material.
While we call it Warlord Resin, this material is as light as traditional resin and is capable to offer the same sharpness of edges and details, but it is not brittle.

I have not had any Warlord Resin figures break on me, seems like it is not very brittle.

Thanks Lorenzo!

Hello Mad Anthony.
The surface of the models in this material allows for the paint to grip very well, this is why we say that you do not need primers on it.
Because of a better grip especially compared to metal surfaces I would rather expect the paint to flake less, even under unusual stress that should not happen in normal circumstances, like bending a spear 90 degrees.
If you use acrylic colours on this material, flaking or cracks caused by accidental hits or bends should be very rare, because acrylics usually used on models tend to have a level of elasticity too.

Hello Flashman, I am just an ordinary modeller like you and I can confirm that the so-called Warlord Resin figures are not brittle, their spears or muskets will bend but not break, unless you force things. Also, the material takes acrylic paints very well, with or without primer in my experience.

@ Lorenzo – The packs I have in mind do NOT say "resin plus" on them. What practical distinctions should I be aware of here?

These are not Resin as in the cold cure drop mould style resin a lot of bigger kits use, they are Siocast resin (also used by Gripping Beast and PSC) and a type of plastic which is injection moulded into a silicon mould.
