    I personally prefer pin vice drills over Dremels for small jobs to avoid the possibility of melting the plastic, so minutes is a valid timeframe.

    What about the other problem, involving amateurly applied "battle damage" paint?

    Its funny because its true. It looks splattered on in some cases.

    I've been thinking about washing that stuff off, using a soldering iron to "Scar" the metal and then give the whole figure a gun metal wash before applying silver accents to the scarred/ Ripped areas. But I would probably do that on a second figure.

    I think some actual, nicely applied scrapes and burn marks would look great. Take the X-Wing fighter toys, for example. I don't know why Hasbro client have asked its SW department to paint the figs instead.
