So here I am sitting at the FLGS, Evolution Games, putting together the last of the Wyches I need for the Webway list. While flipping through the new White Dwarf one of the regulars at the shop pointed out a funny and somewhat rage inducing tidbit of information. Granted from a business standpoint the tidbit in question is a logical move for selling more products and patching, in this case literally, the quality issue with fine cast while they perfect making resin in mass quantities.
I digress though. If you have a copy of White Dwarf handy turn to page 6 and look at the new product dubbed “Liquid Green Stuff”. Green stuff in liquid form. This could be handy for gap filling on quickly and if your actual green stuff skills are lacking. Ok this seems like a gimmick product that may have some uses if you experiment with it enough. Now turn to page 60 in White Dwarf. One of the studio guys is putting together a model, a fine cast model. In step 4 it shows him using the new Liquid green stuff to take care of an air bubble in the fine cast. Ok this is what you would normally do, fill the gaping imperfections in the fine cast. The only real issue I have is that I can see this being GW's actual answer to the imperfections in Fine Cast. I don't see any actual improvements to the actual casting process to get rid of the bubbles, which Forge World does not have as much issue with.
So am I just that jaded by GW that I am making a mountain out of a mole hill? I am not happy with fine cast, that much you know, yes details that were not there before can be seen, but it makes no difference if there are air bubbles messing up the whole model.
Ok what do you think? Next time I hope to have some battle reports for the Archon led version of the Webway list and some on field use of the Court Of The Archon.
Also go over to Dark Future Games. OST has posted the FAQ for their now infamous “End Of Days” partners tournament. Vogrin and I plan on winning this one again. Granted we need a date and a point total to do it. I have to give OST crap, sorry dude I know you are busy as hell, but I got to raz ya.
Until next time...
