So far i have purchased a finecast: butcher, sabertusks, araby maneater, paymaster maneater.
I have to say the butcher was and still is in really bad shape, i have spent many hours cleaning this model up and it still needs several hours of work im very frustrated with this one...supposed to be my general too.
Sabertusks were fine took a little bit of work to fix up but not to bad.
Maneaters are ok but could be better...a skull broke off the araby maneater when i barely touched it that would have never happened with metal, i did glue it back on and it looks ok.
All in all i do like how easy it is to work with finecast, but i hate that i still havent seen one finecast model that doesnt need hours of green stuffing and scraping. I do feel that we are being forced to buy a defective product and i have been looking for the old metal models, the only place ive found them is on ebay and i dont have paypal and dont really want it so im stuck buying finecast.
I really dont get why they dont make everything from plastic. Also noticed that the greenskins GW just released are made from some sort of black plastic, and they look great, maybe they will switch to that for all the finecast models...at least one can hope.
