Im sorry "Doc" but 99.9% of that "danger" is overblown by the medical community as a whole.

Look at me, We use to blow out brake and clutch dust with an air gun (asbestos), we washed our hands in parts cleaner, never wore masks when spraying primer or paint...and everyone I know is just fine. Been working on resin and metal parts for ages, never wore a mask...nothing. Hell I use to work on gas lines in a VW bug, with a cigarette hanging off my lip (lit).

Yea sure some TINY little % of the population might be 'more sensitive' to it...but who cares? Your asking a company to spend $ for labels and such, for 1% of 1%? Really?

We are the wolf that stalks
The stars in the sky
And swallows the star-fire
We hide amongst the night
When light is gone
The Light is within us
We run the ruin of Fire
In the darkness
Foes burn in our passing

Doc...GW cant be sued for peoples inability to protect themselves, if children and parents are ignoring the warnings and not following safety notices and instructions its simply tough shit, and previously stated for a material to be used in a toy it must have been given the all clear, therefore with the correct handling and relevant safety warnings i would be perfectly happy for a child of mine to use resin parts and cut them and sand them if they needed to, if they get a sore throat because they didnt wear a dust mark i would mock them and point out there folly in the hope they do the right thing next time.
gamers use knives and sharp tools, solvent based sprays and strong and solvent based adhesives, why the sudden paranoia over resin?

Im not happy about the change as i quite like metal models, but im going into this with an open mind,if the quality is good or better and the material is durable and lighter its a good thing, if it keeps the prices stable (time will tell) that will be a bonus too.

I can testify (as can the scars on my hands, finger and arms...) that knives are sharp.

But seriously - a GW clipper could take your little finger off (if you didnt have thick fingers like me...) I agree - models used to be made out of LEAD - this is always a hobbie that has contained warning notices.

Ive just picked up my GW primer can - it has LOTS of warning notices on the back:

Extremely flamable

16+

Irritant

Solvent abuse can kill instantly


id say they have themselves covered on that one.

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

I love, and hate metal models at the same time.

My love for the weight, and the amazing detail of them
My hate for the chipping of the paint, the 'if you drop it it might dent in and never be fixable'

if the resin can keep the detail or improve upon it from the metals, and remove my hates, then it comes out as a plus for me... though looking at that haemonculi sculpt makes me wana buy a ticket to the UK to smack whoever the F*** designed that pose

yeah, maybe posing him looking a little to the left and moving his arms a bit he might actually be kind of cool.

I don't like flesh stuff from the DE codex so I won't buy it either way
