View Full Version : trouble with Fire Dragons...

20-06-2011, 20:55
Eldar Fire Dragons have become direct only. No stores around have any and I cant order them from anyone. Does anyone know when they will be released in "finecast" or have any suggestions? Thanks...:confused:

*anything other than ordering them direct from GW? ;)

I believe they are on the second wave of releases for finecast... which I believe hits us medio August.

Wouldn't surprise me. Striking Scorpions are already Finecast.

How about some new Warp Spiders instead. From scratch. Brand new finecast. Pretty please?

+1 to Inquisitor Engel!

How sure are you about the 2nd wave finecast?

and new warp spiders would be great! :)

ebay is loaded with second hand fire dragons

They're pretty useful 2nd hand as well, no worries about stripping metal after all. They're one of those ebay purchases with no drawbacks.

yeah, that is probably my best option. There isnt too many on there right now. I just missed out on 10 newer models. Ill keep checking there.

How many do you need? I've got about 20 or 30 mostly 2nd edition ones kicking around not being used, many of which are even stripped. PM me.

What's wrong with buying them at source?

23-06-2011, 09:31
I bought all mine from ebay (apart from the 5 or so i bough back in 1992, when they were about 3.50 for a pack!)

oh, and new warp spider models would be amazing! oh god yeah!

Does anyone know if you can strip finecast?

23-06-2011, 09:37
Finecast is resin so it should strip just fine with acetone or any other paint stripper. I haven't tested this on finecast though (I haven't bought any, and it's so new I can't see who'd be stripping it yet).

I would however test the acetone strip on an old bit of resin sprue first. It can be quite aggressive towards plastics. (yes resin is a form of plastic)

Testing would be wise, but there really shouldn't be a problem. Forge world stuff strips without a problem so hopefully GW have just refined the mix for finecast.
