Really? Of all the Tyranid units that they could be sold out of, it's the Venomthrope? What the hell. I was expecting Hive Guard or Zoanthropes to be on that list, not Venomthropes.

Don't tell me they're finecosting the Chaos Dread, just when I hold out hope for a kit (Because loyalists have 4 variants) they could possibly shaft my expectations even more.

Much as I loved that kit 2 decades ago, it's already exorbitantly priced and giving the finecast treatment to it it will be even more prohibitive.

Hopefully it will be a new kit but I expect otherwise.

That is incorrect, at least for now. They are all metals that are out of stock until the date they give.

I've placed orders for metals for the past month, and every time I get an email like this.

I've ordered things off the list when the date says they will be in, and I get them in metal.
None of the stuff that has been on the emails has shown up as Finecast or plastic.

I get the impression they have a couple metal spincasters left and are building stock as needed.
Hence the delay.

Quite surprised about Draigo. I thought he was Finecast allready? Or did you, by chance, order the metal one?

"Out of Stock" does not mean "Being Converted To FineCast".

It means "Out of Stock".

The OP is here in the US, and right now Finecast models are supposedly being produced exclusively in the UK facility. Why? Who knows. I'd suspect it has something to do with centralization and making it easier to figure out batches, but I can't say for certain. What that means is that Finecast models can feasibly drop to levels of stock where GW can say they're "Out of Stock", and they need to wait for more to be shipped over from the UK.

I highly doubt they would give ol Tons'o'Fun (the metal Chaos Dreadnought) the finecast treatment... but I've been wrong before.

Anyways, if you really want a Chaos Dreadnought without using the metal one or resorting to Forge World, just convert one from a plastic Loyalist Dreadnought kit.

Or you can wait and hope for a new Chaos Dreadnought kit to come out with the next CSM Codex... whenever that may come out.

If you want an example of what you can do with one, you can check the link in my signature. I've been working on a Venerable Dread for my Iron Warriors, and really the only limit is your imagination and skill with greenstuff.

On topic, I might have to order a few things, such as the metal Chaos Space Marine Daemon Prince, before they too go "out of stock".

I'm not surprised Draigo was pulled at all. The Finecast threads prominently feature Draigo as one of the more problematic models, so he would be a good candidate for re-molding.

I sure hope they release a plastic Chaos dread, and don't just resin the metal dread. I can't imagine why, in a world with a plastic venerable space marine, anyone would buy either, though. Remarkably minor conversion required, tons of options.

This is already Failcast. My guess is that they really did just run out.

Are you getting metal Draigo's?

Witch Elves, you say? I'll have to keep an eye out at my FLGS to try and pick some up for cheap. Fingers still crossed for a new, plastic Witch Elf kit some time in the near future.

That will happen with the new Dark Elf army book where Witch Elves are then 7pts a piece, core, and get a 5+ ward against shooting and spells.

Tsk. I was hoping Fire Dragons would get redone in finecast. They and Howling Banshees are widely popular among Eldar players. At least the Howling Banshees might get redone.

I don't think anything from the current tau range besides maybe the little shaman air guys will end up fine cast. The broadsides and other metal/plastic combo kits are being released as pure plastic kits with the new tau.

As far as Eldar stuff, I imagine most of it will come out with the new eldar release. I think (which means I guess) that will be after 6th edition next summer, even though some eldar stuff is already done. And by some I mean the jet bike things. Maybe more, but I have only got to see the bikes. Anyway I think maybe (or rather guess) that the eldar aspect warriors will either be getting plastics with the range re-release or be fine-casted then. Its the same with the sisters, tau, and necrons. I don't think we will see them out until after their respective releases.

Maybe I'll have to buy Boss Snikrot again when he comes to be in finecast. Meaning i might get to sell my 3rd painted version of that model the same way I sold the first two.

It's the Dreadsock rush. They're probably going to go failcast or plastic at some point, so everyone is stocking up on the metals before Dreadsocking slips into legend.

Thy beard, moreover, is an offence against decency, resembling more closely the scabrous fur which doth decorate the hinder portion of a mongrel dog than a proper adornment for a human face. Is it possibly that thy mother, seized by some wild lechery, did dally at some time past with a randy goat?' - Mimbrate Knight Protector Mandorallen.

Indeed. And Broadsides won't become worthless in the new book unless they offer something tougher, cheaper, and harder hitting in the new book, so no rush. (still hoping for a broadside submunition round of S6 AP4 Small Blast)

Good news. This is the best time in the hobby. Full of promise. GW lets us down each time and we know it but secretly we're hoping that this is the edition that GW gives us a balanced game that can also be played competitively at tournaments. I'm loving it.
