Well, here are those freakin' finecast figures I mentioned in last night's post. The production value on the casts was brutal. They were almost unpaintable, especially the figure on the left. I could have painted 4 miniatures in the time I struggled with that one!
There was not a single element that was not miscast or badly sculpted. It also had very heavy pitting texture on the cloak, which was ridiculous. Even with pins, the back legs kept bending and collapsing.
The war priest was not as bad, but still had a ton of errors. It was a bummer, since these guys were supposed to be an important part of the army, with lots of freehand. These were so bad, I had to abandon almost all the freehand that I wanted to do.
The helmets were so nasty, I had to use an exacto knife to shave down parts of them so that they had an actual shape.
Sorry to be so crabby here! It was very frustrating to lose so much precious painting time to stuff that should not even be an issue in the first place!
From now on, I will either be converting plastic or metal figs I find on ebay, or subbing appropriate Reaper or Foundry figures. It was way more fun to do my banner bearer and war drum that way!
