removing the tabs from minis


Recommended Posts

Small wire cutters or fingernail clippers are ideal for this. Snip them off and clean it up with an exacto blade.

hmmm..didnt think of that..and I do have some toenail clippers around here somewhere....should to the trick

was a bit of a shock to see how robust they were. too used to others companies minis that have weak and much smaller tabs.

I'm used to thick tabs most of the time, actually.

Sprue nippers, like used for plastic models is what I use for most of them (essentially like the nail clippers). If it looks likely to be damaged by the nipper, I'll use a jeweler's saw - essentially a coping saw with a very flexible blade. GW markets all these sorts of tools, but if you have a general hobby store nearby you can find them without the GW markup.
