Finecast Opinions?

Postby Timber » Tue Aug 21, 2012 12:25 am

I think Finecast Sucks. My Eldar Fire Dragon Exarch has a bent firepike -- and I bought 2 trying to get it right. With metal (EZ to mold or change) and plastic, I might have been able to salvage this model, but it's Finecast so I cannot. Finecast is horrid. Anyone agree?

Bent resin is really easy to fix. Boil some water, dip the model in for about 10 seconds, and straighten it.

I would gladly trade all my old metals for finecast..I haven't ever had problems with it, despite all the horror stories that abound

I love fine cast. THe Conversion potential is much higher as its easier to shave and trim with dremel tools and hobby knives. I really like fine cast!
