So got some forge world goodies tonight from Atomic...

A iron clad dreadnought for my slowly evolving marine army...

And some melta/plasma special weapon squad bits...

I'm hooked already!

Any tips on working with forge world resin?

Bath? What do you mean are you stripping paint from plastic? I didn't know you could do this?? Do you have some details of how to go about this.

Ps they look great

I didn't strip these. They are Forge World resin so I gave them a good scrub in soap and water.

But on the topic of stripping plastic. That is very possible. If you back track a frew posts you'll be able to see that I've recently striped some plastic guards men.

I soaked them in "simple green" concentrate and then scrubbed them with a child's electric toothbrush.

I believe it might be... It's all purpose surface cleaner. And not necessarily green, the stuff I used was orange!
Some people use Dettol as an alternative, probably a genetic brand to keep down costs. But I have not used that before.
