Got my mail order today for Finecast Striking Scorpions.

Can imagine my surprise when I opened it to find it was a box of Finecast Harlequins!

Never saw that coming.

Well, they do strike without warning...

How is this news exactly? Unless Harlies have not been made into Failcast yet..

do you have any pics to support this suspect claim?

They need a shadowseer normally though don't they? :P

And no Grim, Harlies apparently haven't been announced as Finecast yet. Except they obviously are now.

Just figured would pass this info on. I've got no pic. Mak, mainly because the camera upon my phone doesn't agree with concrete (stupid I know!)

Not a claim though, because I've got 'em. They came in a Striking Scorps box but they, well, obviously weren't Scorps!

What are, GW Quality Control? Do you think the OP goes around spreading misinformation about the contents of boxed sets he receives? Yowzer, lighten up.

Also, pics or it didn't happen.

I have no reason to disbelieve the OP here...

But I bet someone over in GW is doing a facepalm right now...

How was the quality? Any improvement?

It's old news.. well at least since last month, that Harlequins are in the next wave. It's just news that they are sending them out before announcing them in finecast.... or at least in Scorpion boxes :wtf:

A pic would be nice, we all knew they were going to do it but pics would be helpful

Should we be worried that the quality of the cast was such that they couldn't tell the difference between a harlequin and a striking scorpion?

Dunno about regular Harlequin troupes; but the Shadowseer and Death Jester have been on the Finecast site for a while.

I did say Harlequins were in the next wave, along with the upcoming Warp Spiders and Howling Banshees.

Interestingly, Eldrad Ulthran is also now on the upcoming Finecast list, along with a few Space Marine Characters.

Ah, didn't realise this had been announced as up and coming, my bad on that one!

Just figured it was new n' stuff!

I've put one together and it was easier than the metals to build. Quality wise? Looks the same as the metal ones truth be told (I've got 10 of them so was easy to compare) and I can't see any noticible miscasts.

If the Yriel I ordered last week is failcast, there's going to be hell to pay. I like my spears to point the way I turn them... :)

I'm hoping this is a common mistake now! I want to open a Chimera box and have a Baneblade fall out!

Well I for one am not offended for you taking your time to inform people about something they might not have heard about (like me for one).

Anyway I hope you managed to get the striking scorpions you wanted in the end, or if not that you were happy with the harlequins you found in your box.

It does seem however that this really does add evidence to the supposed lack of quality control from where they are shipped, now weather this is from stress of too many orders or from lack of trained staff/ staff who are not familiar enough with the product, who knows, hopefully things get sorted out soon.

I opened a Space Marine Battleforce last week and instead of getting a Rhino, Scouts, Tac Squad and Assault squad the box had Scouts, Rhino and 5 Assault Sqaud sprues, sadly only 1 jump back but oh well... now my army has lots of dynamic running legs lol.

I admit it... I laughed.

And c'mon! You can't post a message like that without pics... :p I don't play Eldar, but I do think the harlequins are pretty neat: fluff, model and all.
