Hey all, i've been thinking about getting some rackham minis, probably Wolfen (seeing as they are the coolest thing ever IMO) and i was wondering, does anyone know what material Rackham minis are made of? as in plastic, resin or other.
Also, what are the pros and cons of resin?
Thanks in advance!

They are of a metal similar to GWs, but a little bit weaker (easier to cut through).
To the best of my knowledge:
Rackham figures are made of pewter. GW figures are made of a whiter, harder metal. I think this may have something to do with the banning of lead in US figurines. Europe probably has different standards.
In any case, Rackham figures are made of softer metal, a darker grey in color.
Rackham figures are gorgeous and the sculpts are amazingly detailed. However, they are not very user-friendly, with very delicate joins that require expert pinning.
