Finecast works great for some minis, its excellent for marines for example, guard would work too, orks again would be great, but necrons, tau, eldar and dark eldar are far too thin and fine for the medium.

Plastic is the medium of choice for almost everyone who models and games these days and I suspect is one of the major reasons for GWs continued success, personally I think gw need to work a way to get every infantry unit into plastic as fast as possible, if that means including character minis with other kits or single pose clam packs im all for it, if I cant get metal minis then plastics is the preferred choice.

Glad I held off buying any Wracks or Grotesques today. I did order a Haemonculus though. But all well.

I'd argue that. I found it very disappointing when I got some fine cast plague marines, and because I was curious some Chinese recast plague marines and the recasts had greater detail, and less bubbles. There is something wrong with that.

by "works great" I can only assume you mean the space marine legs are too fat to easily warp like the poor warlocks limp spears/swords that always come bent.

You are correct there is something very wrong about buying Chinese recasts.

He's also correct that they shouldn't be better quality than the original, considering the price difference. Not that I'm defending Chinese ripoffs, the industry I work in is rife with the same problems and it's annoying as fuck from a business and retail (explaining it to customers) perspective.

By any chance has anyone seen any pictures of the new DE stuff from this rumour or are we still in 'quote from another source' phase here?

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

If the chinese ripoffs are of a higher quality than the original product, there's something SERIOUSLY wrong, and it's not with the people who decide to buy the chinese ripoffs.

boobs. that is all.

No, there are no images in this week's WD from what I've heard. If they're getting models it'll be after the new 40k rulebook or next month I'd wager.

Let's move the topic away from the discussion of Recasts please before GW sends the Lawyers. Thank-you.

I'm not saying you can't spend your money how you want, but this board cannot support recasters as we'd like to stay running. Thank you for your understanding.

Nuts. I'll be keeping an eye out, the DE have always had some pretty cool looking stuff going on.
