Besides the boardgame and all the graphic material, the HeroQuest Classic box will contain 46 miniatures, 48 scenery elements and 34 markers; all of them made in plastic resin, a material with remarkable properties that allows us to obtain the high degree of detail we want in our miniatures to display.
It is an extremely light, rigid and resilient material, with little flexibility but with a clean and regular breaking cut as opposed to that of plastic, which is more flexible but loses its properties and shape after breaking. Our plastic resin is drop-resistant (but please don’t step on it, as it is still far from indestructible) and very easy to glue back together using cyanocrilate, the classic SuperGlue from Loctite.
The type of resin we use at GameZone matchs the detail and finishing level of metal, being greatly superior to injection moulded plastic commonly used in most tabletop or board games. Apart from that, thanks to its reduced weight even the biggest miniatures are easy to paint without getting tired of holding them in the same position for long.
Those of you fond of customising your own miniatures by modifying poses and taking out or adding certain elements, will notice that these ones are really easy to cut and that, in most cases, you will only need the hot air-stream of a hair-dryer applied on a certain point to turn a head or move an arm. The miniature will get its original hardness back after cooling down.
But don’t just take our word for it , have a look at the
torture test runs that user Drauganar from the Heroquest.es forum is conducting on one of our plastic resin figures. Be warned though, as the images displayed there can hurt the sensibility of some visitors 😉
