New gretchin sprues- any difficulties?
Hello, I just purchased 3 boxes of the new gretchin, and would like to share my thoughts.
The gretchin body with the double-handed blasta(pointing up) is incredibly difficult to remove from the sprue without ruining the intriquet toes. This is because foot and sprue merge into one AT the detail of the toes.
Furthermore, on one of my sprues, the cheeky cunning looking head with the helment(twisted-like expression) was warped and absolutely useless. It's no longer a gretchin head and now has more resemblance to a nurgle possessed marine. I was contemplating taking it back to my stockist, but reasoned I had already built several using the sprues and it wasnt worth it. I just hope I don't need this head later on.
The rest of the sprue is ok, just the one head.
Gretchin by nature are difficult to model with, due to their size, and removing mould lines off the critters is a nightmare...
Don't get me wrong, the nobs box I bought last week is seriously impressive, and I put it up there with sliced bread. Same with lootas/burnas, no probs. But these gretchins appear to of been cramped to fit on two miniscule sprues, and as such, are prone to issues.
Anyone found the same thing? Also, anyone had similar frustrating thoughts before regarding a specific kit?
