I see two problems with this range, the cost to the consumer and the quality of the casting. I am sure GW will improve the casting process, given time and practice. Although it is very worrying that they are distributing sub-standard miniatures with no evident quality control... ship 'em out and bugger the customer?  The Outrageous WTF pricing policy of GW is a whole seperate can of worms.
   It would be nice to see ]I[nquisitor Finecast models, if only for the ease of conversion options.
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

It's sort of a shame that all the rejects are being junked (whether that means they're going in the bin or back to the factory to be ground down, I don't know), because I'd not mind getting some of them for cheap.

None of the miscasts I've seen would be that hard to fix (by my standards, at least), so I'd happily fix a flaw or two if I were getting them at a "B-grade" price.

Even I might get some at a reduced price, but they aren't because the company would lose profits that way, making a model costs them very little, the costs are in the overhead. They believe that they will always sell a specific ammount of something so it would eat away their profits.

its worth noting all our miscasts go into the bin (or employees pockets  ;D ) 'cause you can grind resin down to a powder and use that to bulk out the unmixed resin but for the simple factor of time and re-working out the mix ratio it's not actually worth the effort :O

Yeah, I know it's not going to happen. It's just a shame to see models which'd be an easy fix getting junked when I'd give them a home. But I'm certainly not having them at the full price.
