8th Ed. Look what I found... a mini (more mini than usual) Slann!

    It partly did, for the horns, chains and so on.
    What it didn't fix: there are structures in the stone, like those tiny triangles and stlyized snake heads. And those were weird as well. Compared to other Slann models I have seen the recesses weren't deep enough on mine which made those fine structures hard to paint, and in some places the lines of those structures were bent.
    Now that the Slann is finished it looks decent but to me it seems that the mould perhaps wasn't completely clean or the cooled it down too quickly, something like that.

    I really dislike finecast. Sorry to hear that your Slann suffered from such problems.

    In the end it turned out well so I am not too angry about it. In fact I only noticed comparing to other people's SLanns. First I thought "huh? Did I miss that detail?" but looked closely and noticed my Slann doesn't have that detail.

    Do you need a throne with sharp detail? I think I have two extra metal ones

    Thanks, but no. Not in the foreseeable future. :)

    I got two slaan in a trade. One is on a decorated rubix cube that has been glued into place.

    One is going to sit on a tornado

    Put a skink up on one of them and convert him into Tetto'eko.

    I guess so, but I already made a priest on a floating throne

    I'm sure you'll find some use for it. Maybe get a Forgeworld Slann and put him up there.

    That's a really cool looking model, would love to see a legit stegadon conversion with the newer plastic kit. I am guessing because of the "crests" the howdahs would have to go on the sides of the beastie.

    I was thinking of doing something like this for my Golden Serpent entry back in the day. Then I settled on my Bronti entry.

    Hate finecast with a passion. Painfully fragile, as expensive or even more so then their old metal counterparts, despite being much cheaper to produce and much less durable, and often with defects right out the gate. The savings not at least trickling down to us is what annoys me the most though. Downright miserly of them, though I guess that's no surprise with GW.

    I agree with everything you said. Finecast has been a colossal blunder on the part of GW. At least they finally got the message and have done away with Finecast (in terms of new sculpts).
