I have been using hard tipped sculpting tools to crate parts and effects on Warhammer scale figures for a couple of years. I am looking to move to a much larger scale and I am looking for soft tipped tools so that I can make smoother surfaces than I can with hard tipped tools.
The prices seem to range from less than $1 on Aliexpress to $20 in a hobby store.
For a hobbyist who will not be selling models, where in this range should I set my budget. I will only be using it for a couple of hours a week.
Is a cheap tool a false economy, or an expensive one overkill.
