Me and the wife both got a bug, the battle of both ends has commenced, and naturally the kids are in absolute energy overdrive mode, they can smell my weakened state!

Encountering my first ever Finecast models.
Bought some Tankbustas off eBay, and the disappointment I felt when I opened the box was palpable. They look "gritty" and most have some flaw or other. They also feel brittle, but are quite strong in reality, but they are going to need a lot of cleaning up before they get painted.
They just feel wrong, I have considered that they maybe recasts from China, but the seller seems legit. Mostly selling off non-game related household and art items, with the occasional boxed GW product.
I now appreciate the quality of the plastic models much more highly.

I will keep them, fix them up, paint and use them, but I doubt I'll buy anything "finecast" again.

^ it is my experience that Finecast (while still commonly a disappointment) is not brittle or strong at all when cut into with a knife and chinese knockoffs are.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Most chinese recasters do a better job the GW does with finecast

My cunt of a sister has been setting up subscriptions buying things in my name. I've now gotta try and work out exactly what, cancel them, and sort it out.

Utter prick.

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

That sucks, my little cousin paid for a Netflix account with my bank card.

Hope you get it fixed
