Hello, im going to be buying a large amount of resin molded heads for my death guard, and i was wondering if i could just glue the resin head onto the plastic model and just paint over it without any special attention. Is resin any different from plastic? As far as i know you only have to wear a mask if you are filing or cleaning the model, is that correct?

You're right about not wanting to breathe the dust.
As for other special considerations, not really. You'll want to wash them in warm soapy water to get rid of any mold release, just in case. And remember, plastic glue is useless on resin - use superglue or some sort of epoxy. Beyond that, it pretty much acts the same as plastic.
I find with resin that a spray undercoat is preferable to undercoating with a bruch. even after washing in soapy water.

i never worked with resin before so im defiantly going to be paying attention.

You should clean the resin first so as to get all the residue off, use a basin of warm soapy water and clean it with an old toothbrush or something after soaking for about 10-15 minutes. Superglue does work, but I pin all my resin joints as the superglued joints tend to be dodgy and unreliable.
