Well for a set like Teutonic Knights, Russian Knights or similar the traditional plastic sets are great to make the bulk of the army the metal resin sets can then be used for the special knights, command etc.

Personally, I would say that would make the resin parts because of the delicacy and quality of engraving. This choice should attract to buy the figurine ValdemarMiniatures range. I can tell you there are many who are interested because I keep showing my dioramas.

Personnellement, je dirai qu'il faudrait faire les pièces en résine à cause de la finesse et de la qualité de la gravure. Ce choix devrait attirer les figurinistes à acheter la gamme ValdemarMiniatures. Je peux vous dire qu'il y en a beaucoup qui sont intéressés car je n'arrête pas de montrer mes dioramas.

Well I agree that the grey resin/plastic looks great, problem is still that often 25% of the production needs to be destroyed due to damage, and eventually this will turn into a 25% price raise... Considering this I just love the metal

well sell the 25% as 2nd hand for use as victims or bodyparts if someone want to change some figures? I would need more debrish for the battlefield like weapons, helmets, maybe bodyparts... yes I know, it was a hard time. ;-)

So you could make some small money out of the "not usable" production

for me, I would take some

(btw. yesterday to postman brought some valdemar box again. But it wasn't adressed to me. My wife ordered it, so I guess I know my christmas present *g*)

What could be better than some miniatures under the cristmas tree? I think the idea with the less-quality parts is great, but it´s hard to make a fair price for it because some figs are more usable than others that are more broken...

I also choose for the resin figures. Most of the problems I had was with unbasing the metal figures. My first post here, hold the line, the figure lost his left foot while I was unbasing him.

No bases needed.

My preferences goes to metal figures rather than to resin. Resin is beter in detail but breaks too easily. Metal has the ability that it allows figures to be bent and twisted in order to adjust the poses, to some extend at least. I prefer based figures even when this is, sometimes, more complicated when you want to use them in a diorama and unbasing is needed.

Well as the metal casting is getting better all the time I prefer this as well. Best material would be resin with just a little flexibility I think, problem is that it should be produced close by as metal or the price will go up. Just visited the local hobby shop today and they sold 1/72 scale metal Napoleon figures crafted and casted in Denmark for 10 euro a piece...

Sounds like a hard call and even!
I say stick whit both, if you want to make a good set whit high detail and be sure of producing a good amount of set.
Then use metal. If you make a King, princess, heroes or a knight that will draw attention in a diorama use the Resin.

On the weapon's i dont know the metal bend easy.
And easy to see thick, you cant change that easy.
Though Plastic and Resin sound good
Therefore you can trim it down, and easier to give battle damage!

After receiving my first kit from Valdemar

And about the weapon looking thick i take it back
