Default forge world models

I was wandering since the models sold on forge world are made of resin does that make them harder to cut out or to paint?

They're just as easy to cut, although mould lines are common and take ages to remove >. Forgeworld models are coated with something or other that makes the paint not stay on very well, so always wash it off before attempting to paint a Forgeworld model. I didn't know this when I got my dreadnought plasma cannon from forgeworld. Took me about six tries just to get it undercoated. Grr.

You must use a protection mask when filing them. the resin dust is dangerous for your health.

it's is best to wash it in warm soapy water-my friend got one of those 3 right, but he found that once you've primed it (i'd use a spraypaint) it is easy to paint

It's harder to paint because the resin is coated in mold realease which as the name says, it releases teh resin from the mold. As said before, wash them in warm, soapy water to get rid of most of the mold release.

Does resin come in bitz, or on sprues?

And how well does it glue?

Forge world models are a pain when you first start working on them, but as was said above, once you get the hang of prepping them, youíll be fine. I would defiantly suggest soaking them in warm soapy H2O for about 30 min. then when you undercoat it, I use actual spray paint primer instead of regular citadel UC. Iíve found that this helps the paint stick better to the resign. Also, in regards to the glue question, Iíve found that a washed painted bit will stick just was well as a standard citadel one.

Most vehicles models come 80-90% assembled (because they are casted almost as a single piece). However, infantry models (Guardsmen, Tau Crisis suits) are on spruces.

Nromal GW plastic glue doesn't work on them. GW superglue works very well though.
