Hi guys - these new tools make me laugh...
How much????? LOL. Emery boards are roughly 25p in boots the chemist! And what's wrong with an old toothbrush? LOL! This new brush may be softer but £4's worth - really?
What's wrong with using the back of a knife to "backscrape" mold lines.....it's not exactly rocket science is it? I can't see this mold line remover being any better exactly...
Will anyone buy these or am I the only one who thinks this is bloody daft?
(The only thing that may be useful is the liquid greenstuff, but why any more useful than using ordinary greenstuff and adding water?)
Gw has to benefit from people that are inexperienced and naive in other ways then they already do.
my gf used the liquid green stuff last week in the store, it was on the paint rack for preview before its release.
was very handy at covering seams and whatnot with just one or two quick coats on her wfb chimera (her first time hobbying). a lot simpler and quicker than using actual gs so its more convenient to use on minor maintenance at filling small gaps. just gotta be sure clean the brush thoroughly afterwards otherwise it'll gunk a little in the bristles.
otherwise agreed at the other overpriced supplies, but thats just the trend GW likes to charge consumers for their brand name.
The thing is, people will buy these for convenience because they're sold from the same place that you buy your models from. Yes they are stupidly overpriced, but it's not like any of their other tools aren't. Polycement, superglue, PVA, water effects, craft knives, files, vices, drills, even Green Stuff in other forms can be bought considerably cheaper from other places; people will pay that extra money for the decreased hassle of not having to visit different shops or websites.
Liquid green stuff is not the invention of the wheel.Even i who am an amateur in those things have found tubes with liquid milliput or other types of modeling/filling stuff.
I dont need to mention the price.
When i saw those things i didnt consider the price.I was scared because in my gut something tells me that this is the answer to the finecast...miscast problem.
To paraphrase one of our fellow loers:It has some miscasts,no problem buy some liquid greenstuff and those brand new tools to clean the flash and is set to go.Nice!!!!
After all as the site tells you:Its all part of the GW hobby...(the what hobby?)
Overall Arcana(see i can write it right some times ) has hit the nail in all of its heads.

Praise be to the Emperor!!
The liquid greenstuff doesn't seem particularly pricey. GWs tools are virtually always very expensive. They can't really make those themselves, they have to outsource that stuff. I try to avoid buying basic tools at GW as it'll usually cost something like €10,50 , but I do buy paint and brushes there instead of any hassle of finding another store or website.
That's true, I agree - but I think with the brush they've really excelled themselves this time.GWs tools are virtually always very expensive.
