[News Flash] Out of Left Field: Citadel Finecast Experiment Over?

Out of Left Field: Citadel Finecast Experiment Over. 

Finecast production to be limited or stopped completely. This morning's rumors declares Citadel Finecast an experiment that is coming to a close.

Rumors Out of Left Field are really rumors that I do not think are going to come around. I find quite a bit of information and some of it gets disqualified almost immediately. I've decided to start sharing some of these. Can they be real?, of course. There is just something about them that makes me feel uncomfortable about posting them. Sometimes its just the source, or how the source released the information, sometimes its the information itself.

I don't know how reliable GW staffers are, but one has strong feelings that fine cast will be no more in a few months, something about a lack of return, and better plastic casts, apparently the new approach is to focus on the plastic blisters and to slowly but surely stop producing finecast or reserve it for truly exceptional minis.


  1. I don't think it's true. Why would GW spend all that time and money on re-making moulds, designing models so that they can be done in finecast, to just scrap it and say it was an experiment.

    To me it just does not make any sense and would do GW alot of harm. They might be stopping the line for a short period of time due to the imperfections that people have complained about to fix the problems, but thats all I can think of.

  2. If they aren't getting the return the share holders want then they most likely would.

  3. Not much of a loss really ;)
    Maybe they're just holding up on the production til they find a better recipe for resin (one can only hope) cause the quality of the ones they made wasn't very impressive.
