Anyone has experience with current incubi models? Are they still finecast? Or is the resin and models quality better now?

They're still Finecast.

GW never advanced the Finecast project or changed the quality of resin. They just jumped right away from it and moved into plastic, but there ares till many models like the Incubi still available only in Finecast.

You can pick up the metal variants on ebay once in a while, you need to be patient though. Sad

If you're interested (and located somewhere I can post to with ease) I'm planning to sell my old metal ones. One or two got a tiny bit ocnverted, but I have a good handful of them to unload. I never use them anymore (because I converted replacements).

(EDIT: I have 12, plus a metal Drazhar)

I've had decent luck with what little Finecast models that I have purchased in the last year or so, but I wouldn't hold your breath!

Looking at the Incubi sprues I do wonder what's stopping them from just casting them in plastic using the same molds...

That would be the fact that plastic models use steel molds whereas metal and resin use rubber molds.

Possibly the most annoying thing about Failcast for me was that GW did it so they could move away from metal due to the hideous cost of metal. So they moved to resin, which is ridiculously cheap. They used the exact same molds, a far, far cheaper raw material AND PUT THE BLOODY PRICES UP!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Ah I thought it would be some form of manufacturing issue. I know from car manufacture that the vast majority of manufacturing costs are actually in the tooling costs, rather than materials.

Putting the prices up with a cheaper material is just criminal. Makes me even more firm in my insistance that I will never buy another finecast model (bought 1 Spiritseer, never again).
