Metal all the way, normally better detailed, they take paint better and theres summut about the weight of a good metal model that makes it feel a bit more special

I find that resin is harder to paint, metal is near impossible to convert, and Plastic is easy to paint and easy to convert. I'll have to go with Tar-Emmetar on this, you know that you have a good model in your hand when it has some weight to it.

Sure the weight is good but still plastic models are better because they are easier to paint. I find it impossible to paint metal models. If I ever get that camera back I'll show you my tyranid hunters.
