Hello all! I went to a local store recently and discovered they have a boatload of Star Wars miniatures. I was planning on getting some to use for a wargame and I was wondering how durable the miniatures were? Are there any sets that should be avoided?

Thanks for all your help!!

There all pretty durable. some bend out of shape. You can fix them by putting them in fairly warm to hot-ish water bending them back and dipping them in to cool water. Some of them with light sabers can be a bit fragile.

Expect 25% bent miniatures.
Temporary fix with hot/cool water works. Temporary.

yeah, lightsabers and other long weapons (pikes, blaster rifles, whips etc) start to bend and droop, but I've never had anything break. Other than that, I've had no problems

i have recently purchased approx 25 minis and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of them, both the sculpts and especially the painting.

the lightsabers in particularly are soft but at least that prevents them snapping off.

would very much recommend them
