I have just spent nearly 2 hours to prep the njal storm caller mini. this is my first encounter with a finecast model and i must say I'm not impressed. I tried to find the best one whilst i was in the store but its hard to tell when you cant take the mini out of the pack. There were loads of air bubbles in the casting and i must have filled about 25 holes at least plus re sculpt some of the wolf hair on the back not to mention the state of the staff. My conclusion...... These miniatures are not for the faint hearted.
