i dont know why but i have never been lucky with finecast. Ive never gotten a finecast model that i cas sit down look at and say hey thats a really good cast. Ive had much better luck from FW when it comes to resin.

Holiday weekend means I had time to knock out my Vassal of Menoth. This is good since I will be out of town for half the month while on vacation.

Had a similar problem with mine. No matter what I did I couldn't straighten out the handle of his hammer. Couldn't straighten the Emperors Champions sword. Also painted Farsight though, and he was a perfect cast. The one and only finecast mini I was entirely happy with.

You try soaking them in hot water before bending them? I've heard that helps make it more pliable. Still, I dunno what you've tried, and I spent quite a while filling holes on the Bloodthirster I got. He was dead easy to saw to bits and turn into Skarbrand, though--finecast gets cut like butter.

I tried everything. Hot water, hair dryer, vice. It just all warped back to where it started. Never had a problem with any other resin products I've had cause to fix.

The only lame cast I've had is a zoanthrope who snapped off the base b4 I have even had chance to paint it. Now it's pinned but still not quite right.

Wooooohooo cool model above!

Here are my shots of my projects for this month that I'll enter - two vendettas and as many scions as I can smash through.



Vendettas done as far as I can without their conversion kits having arrived yet.

Well, it's been a while since I was either online or indeed painted anything. So to motivate myself a little I'll have a crack at another yearly challenge a month late

Started painting these yesterday hence the base coat on two of them but I'll be doing my Alpha Legion Slaanesh lord + 3 bikers including my 2 plasma gunners
