, not that I really need to say this I suggest the throw bounce test be done with a really inexpensive figure, JUST IN CASE.
my comments about shoeboxes stems from having seen players using that transport method simply and literally just throw those figures into a jumbled pile in a shoebox or two. Where they bang together, chipping paint breaking off weapons etc.
My comments were directed toward that particular scenario, not toward you as an individual.
I paint so slowly and for years as an Outrider for GW, had to let my own figures be manhandled in demonstrations, so I shudder when I see players handling their own figures carelessly. I have even had people use their fingernails to pick and pry chunks out of my hand built scenery, pick up and drop figures repeatedly and deliberately until they knocked over half the conversion details off the figure or insist on picking up converted figures by the most fragile detail until they wreck the conversion.
Now as I am no longer an Outrider and represent no company, no one is allowed to handle my figures without my direct permission. So I am very anal about how my figures are stored and transported.
