Citadel Finecast Commentary
Well, I finally purchased my first Citadel Finecast product from Games Workshop…a Vampire Counts Cairn Wraith. It took me a long while to get up the nerve to spend money on their product due to reading so many horror stories about miscasting, bubbles, warped halves not fitting together properly, etc, etc. Not to mention all the catchy little monikers the Finecast product has been dubbed, Failcast, Finecrap, etc. However, I am happy to say that my first Finecast model has been defect free…do I expect my future purchases to come as nice as this one? I would hope so for the price tag that the Finecast product have been blessed with, however I still have doubts due to all the unhappy reporting on the message boards and blogosphere.
Honestly I prefer metal miniatures over plastic or resin (I like the weight and sturdiness to them), but with the detail that I have seen so far I can say this product could really grow on me. Games Workshop, please continue to hone your skills with this product and you will continue to get my business.
Now, onto painting this little fellow! 😀
