The new Wrack and Grotesque models are confirmed as Finecast as they went up for pre-order on GW's site earlier this week. The new Haemonculus is also going to be Finecast. As I have previously said I like the switch to resin models. After years of dealing with metal models and being spoiled by new awesome plastic kits I am ready for some easy to assemble models that won't break my drill bits.
The price increases is really what is making me mad. The new resin Wrack box is $33.00. You get a grand total of 5 Wracks. SO to make a full squad you will be spending just shy of $70 for a full squad of Wracks. The Grotesques are $20.00 each and there is only one pose. So Grotesques now take the prize for most expensive Eldar unit. $200 plus for a unit of 10 makes Wraithguard jealous of their baller status.
That raises the question of how much are they going to jack up the prices on the models they are redoing. Its the same model just made out of resin.
I may be beating a dead horse, but this whole Finecast thing upsets me. On a semi related note I have gained possession of the Pre release models of the New dark Eldar Plastic kits. I will be doing some assembly this week and I will give you my impressions of the new kits.
I leave you now. The Judge is turning 21 tonight and as the youngest member of the Dark Future Games crew he will be going through the initiation into manhood. May god have mercy on his soul.
Happy Birthday Judge I apologize in advance for destroying your liver.
Next time some kit reviews and the 6th Foundation Of Vengeance.
Until next time.....................
