Finecast Followup

As promised here I have a picture of a Finecast and a metal Death Jester. Photographed most expertly by my good friend and graphical wizz Mr Chris Morris whose work can be seen here (

Mr Morris informs me this would have worked so much better if the models were undercoated in white. However, since we still have no real idea about the ability to strip paint from Finecasts black it is.

Without further ado, here we go. First the metal. (Click, as they say, for big)

And now the Finecast:

Well now, to me it seems like paint sticks to resin that bit better. Or, I was a bit more thorough then the chap I loaned the metal miniature from with the old spray. Other then that, I am hard pressed to tell the difference.

How about you?


  1. My, this is a frequently updated blog.

  2. I use an airbrush a lot and don't really notice a difference between metal and resin. I'm starting to prefer resin though, Hawk and Spartan both do some very nice things with resin at the moment
