I am sure some experienced in this will find getting the parts off the sprues to be quite easy, but I am having a very annoying, especially with such soft material. I have clipped a few wrong, grrrrr.

Has anyone else found this?

Any other tips?

I did mine with the original set a long time ago with an exacto knife and do remember slicing the edges off some of the units. Since then, I got SOBS and learned of sprue cutters. Just search Amazon for "sprue cutter" and you'll find similar:

Also I've heard regular nail clippers can work. Good luck!

A few are hard to be certain exactly where the edge is, making it take even more time.

Though I just realized one box (I got 2) only had sea units, so i am going to have to contact them to get the others. I got both sea and land units in the white and black unit sets that I think were addons.

I haven't opened the other one yet since I want to try to video it.

I realized my error. The box should only contain the sea units. The land units should come from my existing Attack! game.
