Well now its my turn, I just purchased ten Dark Eldar Wracks, and Urien Rakarth, to get me one stage closer to 'finishing' my Dark Eldar at 1750 points. I was a little hesitant about buying them over the interwebs from an independent retailer , as I've heard many horror stories about having to return them and the hassle that goes along with it.
Anyway, my order turned up Friday, and I set about checking for casting errors. The Wracks appear to be faultless, yes there is the odd air bubble, but they wont take two seconds to get rid of with a brush of Liquid Green Stuff, so a big thumbs up for them, 10 models and no defects.
Urien on the other hand, well he had no chin! I didn't take a picture of this, I admit it, I forgot. Anyway I called up my local GW and advised of this problem, and they agreed I could swap it for one in the store, which I did. This model was much better, his missing chin had been replaced with one that Jimmy Hill would have been proud of but a quick snip and tidy with a knife and he's done.

Now Finecast itself.
Yes there is a lot of flash, which you'll see below, but most of it just falls off with a light brush with a knife, so is a lot less scary than it looks. Mould lines are minimal and once again are very easy to remove, much easier than on metal models of old. The actual building is easier too, with the parts joining with a minimal amount of super glue, even the larger parts hold in place in seconds and there is no worry about the weight of an arm or weapon pulling the joint apart as Finecast is extremely light. This lightness takes a bit of getting used to, as does the bendyness of some of the bits.
