Darrell takes a peek at the resin-plastic Wraiths from Mantic Games.
whats that?, plastic/resin models with no casting issues? they’re the same price as when they were metal models but you get double the amount in the box? …….. well played Mantic, well played.
Unfair, the resin Mantic use could never achieve the quality of Finecast (when it’s sold as it’s meant to be). I have Mantic resin, it’s good and it more or less the quality of metal, so long as the metal is nothing too complex, and they aren’t up to the standard of Finecast (when, I have to say again, it arrives in your hands the way it’s meant to, not when it’s defective which is often). You don’t know what Finecast is, it’s a fallacy to compare Mantic’s plastic resin to GW’s Finecast mix, they’re simply not the same. That’s not to say you’re not right, you could be, as no one seems to know what, exactly, Finecast is, and thus the true cost of Finecast is unknown.
That’s not to say Mantic’ resin is great, it is. Their resin produces a quality greater than plastic and almost as good as a high-quality/detail metal model. Mantic underprice their resin imo.
Damn GW and their inability to grasp quality control though.
I’ve got some of these. Very happy with the material, which basically has the same feel to it as plastic, but unlike plastic can have undercuts, so the sculpt quality is just as good as metal.
Plus, £1.40/model from Mantic or £8/model from GW kinda speaks for itself as far as value for money goes.
It would be awesome if mantic could do them in a transparent/translucent resin…
Look nice – BTW the sword is a Flamberge style: wiki cut n paste-The term flamberge, meaning “flame blade”, is an undulating blade
The weapon getting stuck comment reminded me of terminator two, when his berretta get’s stick in the gate as robert patrick passes through it
What can I say, there lovely, got 5 painted and bought another 10 My money is where my mouth is.
