Starting Next Month, more miniatures. Our question, do you prefer metal figures (some feel they are easier to paint and sturdier) or resin (maximum detail and light weight)? Or don't care because you like them both? Feel free to add any additional comments after the poll. This poll ends in 21 days.

Plastic is better than either; metal is heavier, hard to mod, and hard to glue. Resin melts or becomes brittle, depending on temperature.

Dang Fenris...where do you live? I experience +40C to -40C, and I've never seen a resin mini melt. (No, I have no A/C.)
That all being said, I prefer lead to pewter, and metal to plastic or resin.
We'd likely still be using lead even today, were it not for that idiot that started eating parts from his figs when they were lost in game.

As for modding, lead is easy to modify. Bends beautifully, cuts easily, and takes glue well (although heavier parts do occasionally require pinning).

always have preference for metal, as i've lost a few plastic minis due to a strong wind blowing them who knows where at a friend's house and them never finding them.

I'm not a connoisseur when it comes to minis.
I know jack-all about materials.

All I can say is that the cheaper the figurines are, the more likely I'd be interested in buying some,
but that quality is also an issue in that I don't want things that fall apart, bend, warp, etc.
