As much as we would like it to go away, recent rumor mongering about Finecast is quiet frankly dead wrong.
Just because you want it true never makes it true, sorta like a certain new Blood Bowl edition that never came.
Let us start with some perspective. This little Finecast rumor started earlier in the year from some anonymous source claiming Finecast going the way of the Dodo around 2016. First off, red flags should always fly when you project Games Workshop actions so far out.
Fast forward to now...
Lots going on behind the scenes at GW - Look for a public announcement in Q2 of 2014 regarding Finecast:-GW Proper gets out of Finecast entirely.
-Forgeworld will take control of all remaining Finecast character models.
-These character models will be the only non-plastics in GW's line until they are replaced.
-These character models will be moved over to plastic (and GW control) in time with plastic clampack resculpts.
-There are internal tests taking place to cast some existing Forgeworld resin kits in a new plastic material.
It looks like the resin material is on its way out, and GW is sprinting as fast as it can to replace any Finecast non character kits from their entire range - leaving them as a 100% plastic manufacturer.
If you look at the past few releases, you can see the pattern.
