Thread: New Forgeworld/Finecast packages!

    New Forgeworld/Finecast packages!

    New Forgeworld/Finecast packages!

    Posted on BOLS LINK:
    Now everyone by now knows the standard Forgeworld form factor. You get the hyper detailed - yet flexible semi bendy resin in the plastic Forgeworld bags.
    Our last order contained this thing:

    FW-clamshell-01.jpg
    FW-clamshell-02.jpg
    So some points:
    1. That is the standard Finecast plastic packaging.
    2. The material seems upon initial inspection to the be the less bendable finecast material.
    3. This exact kit has been ordered in the past in the standard baggie form factor.

    So what's up? Fluke, or a preparation for a ramping up of Forgeworld for distribution in stores? With the new emphasis on the "Warhammer 40,000 Approved" logos on all the latest Forgeworld rules, and a new edition approaching... who knows what might be up.

    "The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and ... "
    "Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?"
    "Exactly."
    "Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?"
    "Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?"
    "I don't know."
    "Nowhere, exactly. What we do is if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?"
    "Put it up to eleven."
    "Eleven, exactly. One louder."
    "Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten the top number and make that a little louder?"
    " ...... these go to eleven."

    Perfect analogy there.

    Christ alive - the sheer amount of cleaning up to do on that automatically stops me from ever buying it. I love resin because it's very easy to clean up - have to say that from what I've seen from Finecast the work to sort things out is more than even metal :( .

    That effectively puts paid to any chances of me ever buying another GW/FW model if FW turns to the dark side too....

    Oh well, more money for BOOBS!

    It kind of looks that way, rough as hell in fact but most of that flash does just fall off if you poke it so it's not that bad. Bubbles on the other hand...

    There's an 'interesting' post on the thread on BoLS which purports to be an email reply, on Finecast, from FW (must admit, not entirely convinced it is)

    "(...)To address your points, however, we'd like to point out that Forge World do not sell Finecast products; Finecast is a Citadel brand, not a specific type of resin, and so we are not operating some sort of scam as you imply in your e-mail, nor are we misrepresenting our products. As we are perhaps the largest single manufacturer of resin models in the world, it should be unsurprising that the Citadel decision to begin using similar materials a certain amount of consultancy with ourselves.

    "Forge World use a huge range of different types of resin and just as wide a range of casting methods depending on the kit in question. You'll note that the resin used for a Titan is very different for that used to produce solid resin scenery, or a smaller resin infantry model, or indeed the new range of hollow resin scenery that we're starting to release. What you describe as 'Finecast resin' is simply a different mix, one that we've used for some time for smaller and more detailed models where appropriate.

    "The centrifugal casting process used to produce the Citadel Finecast range is again something that Forge World began looking at some time ago; you rightly point out that the traditional drop-casting method is extremely time- and labour-intensive, the spin-casting method is just as involved but the quality checking is rather more critical. This has obviously not been performed as stringently as it should have been, but as the Citadel and Forge World production teams are separate we're obviously unable to comment upon, or influence, the policies in place regarding Finecast."

    Having had face two face (see what I did there) experience of Ead Brown nothing would surprise me...
