The plastic is of the harder variety, comparable to the stuff used by say Italeri. The set has a range of different poses, including, which I find quite original, some animal ghost ones. Not bad at all and the special paints that come with the set can be easily mixed with normal Acrylics.
As can be seen in the following pics, they paint up quite well. First up, a baby ghost.
This one is a horse..or it could also be a pony...some of them are a bit out of scale, but never mind.
Happy Halloween :-)
