Second issue was I think a casting one. I had done some minor converting to this guy to swap heads with the other duplicated commando figure to add a bit of variety. Then as I was clipping off his base, his entire right leg just popped off. There must have been some bubble or casting inconsistency as I didn't do anything different to the other figures I removed the base from. In the third pic down you can see how clean the snap is and how there appears some colour striations which makes me think it wasn't as solid as usual.
Thankfully I found the leg so hopefully a bit of epoxy and liquid green stuff will fix this guy up.
If I place the two pieces together they don't match perfectly - further supporting my thoughts.
So once again these are not the best miniatures in the world, but for the price which was not Reaper Bones cheap but pretty close I'd say they are still a good step above. Still frustrating to deal with but at least they come out with decent detail.
