POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo Parzival Supporting Member of TMP wonders...

Let's set aside the various obnoxious character types occasionally encountered, and stick with aspects that are essentially unavoidable, such as collecting figures, priming, painting, etc. In other words, the things you would do even if you played solo or only with the Best Possible People In the World.

Top of my list:
Prepping figuresó most specifically, filing off mold lines.
You file and file and file and little bits of metal or plastic dust that cannot possibly be good for your lungs pile up on the work surface and then you look at the figure and the flippin' mold line is still there. AUUUGGGHHHH!!!
Okay, what's yours?
