She set me back for 15€... Sheesh. Been a while since I bought anything directly from GW and now I remember why. Oh well. I did want to get my hands on the model quickly so ordering from Maelstrom wasn't an option.
At a glance at the store the model seemed to look OK. I asked them how much returns they've had with the Finecast. They had to admit that quite a lot.
The Lelith's mini looks really good. The sculpt and the pose are both awesome. And the details really seem crispier than with the metal minis (which I doubted).
The model comes in a sprue (!) and it's light. I mean really light. The Finecast has also a kind of rubbery feeling to it. It's bendy and when you cut it, it doesn't snap but kind of runs through the material. Mind you, be careful with the knife as it cuts to the material like a hot knife to butter.
Really nice to work with. And work is what the model would have needed...

There is some flash, not a problem.
Hardly any mold lines, which is always good.
But but. It's miscast...
Someone probably would have taken this as a challenge, but not me. This one's definitely not a keeper not with it's current price tag. Be it a lot cheaper and I kind of would have understood. Returning it to the store today. Let's see if the next one's in better form.
The store didn't have the same model on the shelf so I have to wait for a replacement. Sigh.
Picked up the new Lelith today. Let's see how it's gonna fair in the inspection...
