New Video

Hi all,

Here's a little video I just put up on Youtube demonstrating how to deal with soldiers that have become bent or misshapen.  I hope you enjoy it.



Soldier on!

Mannie, That was a fun film. Thanks. I usually throw all new plastic figures into hot water to straighten any bends AND to clean any oils or mold release and even kill germs from the figures. Supposedly placing the hot figure directly into cold water sets the straightened position.

I knew about boiling water, but I didn't know it would straighten weapons out automatically. Thanks for the tip.

Cecil B. De Milne...you 'aint!! But a good video, I'd add you have to be careful with some of the older vinyls, I ruined some Hong Kong for Herald medieval archers putting them in too-hot water, their previously slightly bent bows, shriveled up and lets face it; if you were drooping before, you don't want to be shriveled as well!

Also I find that if my soldiers are bent, it's easier to paint them pink and sent them to the ambulance troop! (A tasteless English language joke there!)

I always enjoy your videos. Thanks for putting that together and sharing.
