Hello fellow hobbyists and gamers, welcome to todays installment. First entry in May! May the 4th be with you all.
The new citadel releases from their finecast range... well. What I have purchased. I know this is a topic that is brought up a lot and it debated over and over on the interwebs but because this has now affected me more than not its time to actually get it off my chest.
First off let me say I have a love hate relationship with Citadel Finecast. I -love- working with resin a million times over than with metal, its easier to clean the detail is crisp its light and paint sticks to it better. Its also easier to convert meaning that you are not bound to just a few poses if you dont have greenstuff skills and a saw... Hence, from a practical perspective I love resin and it goes witout saying that when the product is in great shape, its awesome.
So, now on to the more negative part of this article... when finecast is bad... its -terrible-. Now, I like the fact that GW has decent customer service and when I have called in a faulty product they have sent me a replacement. What annoys me is when the replacement is also fail and then the customer service rep then questions my motives... I want a product that is not full of bubbles thank you very much! Now this has not been an issue with me in the past but dang! Lately I have had the absolute worst luck with the finecast that I have purchased so here is a list of what has been horrible:
Grotesque, and the two replacements that they sent me, I got tired of them sending me bad models so I told them to just send me some greenstuff!
5 wracks... then the replacement box was also garbage.. I am waiting for the second round of replacements to arrive. Literally these are THE WORST that I have ever had to deal with... unsalvagable really. holes everywhere, and I do mean everywhere!
Urien (DE special character) waiting for a replacement now.
Dark Eldar Medusae.
Anyhow, just wanted to put this out there as I am a little frustrated and I really hope that I get some better models, for example the Lhamean that I got is gorgeus! Crisp lines and great detail.
The second thing I wanted to talk about was episode 10. It is under way and on schedule, and should be released next week I am currently trying to fix some editing issues that I have had with the sound when I add music to the podcast I hope to have that sorted out to help your wonderful ears.
Thanks a lot for reading.
