Review - The Warden miniature figure for DreadBall from Mantic Games

 

Material: Hard PVC

Glueing: As it is not polystyrene, you can't use polystyrene cement, only superglue.

Priming: You don't have to use primer, but as restic is sligthly hydrophobic, it's recommended, as it will be easier to paint it. Use non-water based primers, as those might have problem with sticking to it.

Painting: The material is sligthly hydrophobic. If you don't use primer, then don't dilute your paint with too much water, or be prepared to paint more than one layer of paint on an area to cover it entirely. Also, if you use water based wash, paint the area beforehand (even if the original gray colour would fit you), otherwise the wash will just drop off.

The miniature

Every miniature in the DreadBall Xtreme base set is either a one-piece cast, or multi-piece ones that are pre-assembled and glued, so you don't need any preparations before your first game. All of them are also sanded, so there is no need of further work before painting. The only exception is the Grogan Guard, but it has a tight fit peg, so you only need to push it together, and it will hold through your games.

The glue doesn't show, most of the miniatures are so finely crafted it's hard to realise whether or not it is a multi-piece cast. Most of the joins are hidden well, and that also helps the pieces to stay together. I haven't seen any of these minis come apart.

Painting the miniature

There are some hard details on the miniature, but mostly soft ones. The details on the suit and pants are soft.

I think it has mould lines on its side, but even if they are there by mistake, it doesn't look out of place on the suit and pants, so it's ok.
