    Default GW Begins the "Great Smelt"

    Word today is that truckloads containing literally metric tons of metal miniatures have pulled away from GW HQ, headed for a date with a furnace. The entire stock is to be smelted down and sold off on the metals markets.

    Look for any remaining stocks of metal models to disappear shortly from the website.

    GW's era of metal miniatures is over.

    Depending how much they have it could produce quite a yeild for them financially, while free-ing up storage.

    I still hate finecast, (when i'm making a new army I always do test paints on metal models because they can be stripped perfectly.) But my worry is about the things that I thought they still don't have finecast of like sisters?

    Or is it I have just never seen a sister fincast in the "wild"?

    So what will become of all the Adepta Sororitas Miniatures?

    and yet they are selling the metal bugmans models again in the bar instead of finecast.

    maybe just to get rid of them though .

    The full rumor is that they will also be phasing out finecast and replacing it with plastic.
