    I like my time and money!

    He's very.. Understanding, shall we say. He wouldn't let me walk away with any of it, but like I say, it didn't look nearly as bad as the Draigo did.

    I saw some Bretonian character, Black Templar EC, Abaddon, Yarrick and a Hive Tyrant, they all looked reasonable flash wise.

    They weren't flash free, don't get me wrong, but they weren't terrible. GW manager was saying it's pretty straight forward to clean up.

    My first bit of warhammer modding, :D

    Twin chain sword
    Converted using two left hand chain swords, but swapping the hand on the right one from a right hand arm holding a bolt pistol.

    Also got a few of the leftover parts from my termie Lord to turn a marine into an aspiring champion. Although I think the power fist is a bit large (as its for termie armour) :D

    With Games Workshops price rises and the amount of work you already put into these... I'm suprised you have either!

    Saying that I'm seriously considering buying around 25 Terminators and 2 Land Raiders and making it my "Forward Command Unit" for my Chapter :) Just to say I have them!

    Where's my invite to game playing? Has the Emperor condemned you?

    I'm tempted to... seriously. I just want to make Kef'fal (my chapter master) and have him as bad ass as can be.

    Saim-Hann and Zahr-Tann appeal most to me.

    Right, after a day with Finecast, my conclusion is thus:

    It's awesome.

    Survivability up the backside (Even one of the more retarded locals couldn't break a Lictor or a Hive Tyrant by being a clumsy oaf), all the "flash" that could be considered an issue is actually a complete non-issue. Look at the sprue right and the stuff falls off. You can literally scratch the flash off with a fingernail, or the back of a craft knife.

    Takes paint like a pro, too.

    Lelith Hesperax (Focus of todays work):

    Abaddon The Despoiler (Not done anything but base coat):

    Commisar Yarrick (Tertiary):

    My "Carnifex" EC (Colour scheme of the 'fex he slew last week):

    My shoddy pictures don't show it, but Finecast is damned good. When I get Castellan Crowe in finecast, I'll do a side by side if anyone's still interested by then, but the difference in that model is surprising.

    Awesome stuff :)

    Yep I've been seeing some other gamer reviews of finecast and it does sound pretty great to be honest.

    Yeah, I am so much happier with it than I was metal - I will absolutely be re-buying anything in metal I avoided before, or already have, just because the metal ones are such a pain (IMO) - They're the only models GW make (made) that I feel it's worth clear coating (Although, I use stuff meant for cars - matt of course) because (In my experience) of their tendency to chip and generally suck at staying together without massive exercises in greenstuff and pinning.

    Wekk im trying to stay away from the main craftworlds though i like iyaden, im really tempted by Zahr Tann, whats the thoughts?

    Not gotten to my finecast figures yet- could have bought so many but reisted to what i needed/ though apprently GW has sacked about 9/10 mangers as they have allowed finecast to be seen before Saturday.
