I just bought Dreadfleet and it is my first game that I have to clip part out of the plastic sheet. The problem is that I don't have the correct to to clip them out and I was wondering if I can find some clippers @ Walmart or something like that because there is no hobby or game store near the city I live ( I think the nearest is @ San Diego Which is 200 miles away).

There is a Micheal's Art store and Staples like 10 miles away from home if that helps.

Or does anyone knows a link to an amazon page?

Something like this should do the trick:

http://www.amazon.com/Eurotool-Extra-Small-Side-Cutter/dp/B0...

The primary use of this kind of tool is for cutting wires. So they are usually found near other electricians' tools in larger department stores, and also at stores that sell electronic components and that kind of stuff.

Thanks that would do the trick.

I got a great set of clippers at Harbor Freight -- and they were inexpensive. Something like $4 or $5. Maybe less, but they weren't more.

You could also try other hardware stores. The main thing is to try to get a pair whose cutters are offset so that they are flat on one side, allowing you to get very close to what you want to clip.

Edit: I've got to type faster.

I think we don't have a harbor freight but we have a Home Depot if that can be compared to harbor Freight.

Any competent tool place should be able to sell you "flat-nosed tin snips" fairly inexpensively.
