Review: Citadel Finecast, Dante and Commissar Lord
I went down to my local GW today to drool over the new finecast models.
I purchased a few things, my main two being Dante and the Commissar Lord, both looking extremely sweet in Finecast.
So I got them, the clip out beautifully, and are really easy to tidy up.Glue works really well, literally 2 seconds and the parts were stuck together.
The commissar is a beautiful model, the detail on him is astounding. He has little scars on his cheek, and his expression totally says “screw you xenos scum”.
My other purchase was Dante, I’ve never liked the dante model, mainly because he was small, and looked rather pathetic compared to the rest of the sanguinary guard. Not now.. he looks a lot more imposing and “up to date” now all the lovely detail has been bought out. Below you can see some of the comparisons to the old metal one:
And here are the pair together:
One downside to the finecast at the moment is quality control, I can image that GW was rushed off it’s feet supplying the metal models at the same time as casting all the Finecast. I saw some shocking miscasts today, they were all dealt with of course, but they certainly need to up their quality control..
