The only game I can remember this happening with was Warzone: Resurrection. When we finally receive our pledges, we were a little shocked to see how many parts some of the models came in (and with no building instructions).
My Warzone models ended up in a drawer for some time. I’ve only recently starting pulling them out, but I’m not churning through them like a GW or PP kit. It’s be a while yet before I have enough models to actually play a game. In the meantime, I’m using the few I have assembled for skirmish games like This Is Not A Test.
Robotech: Tactics. Barf.
I did a commissioned job for some pewter Khador Warmachine models, and that forever convinced me I want nothing to do with that game. Paticularly the Pikeman didn’t remotely go together and had terribly smashed/bent pikes. The Butcher, although very reminiscent of GW pewter models in quality, reminded me that although Finecast had it’s many flaws, resin is in pretty much everyway far superior to pewter with few exceptions. Though in a perfect world everything would be GW quality plastic.
You are talking about pretty much every metal kit ever made.
“WHY WON’T YOU FUCKING STAY ON! I USED A WHOLE TUBE OF SUPERGLUE FOR YOUR FUCKING ARM! I STAYED HERE HOLDING YOUR FUCKING BITS TOGETHER FOR A WHOLE HOUR! RIGHT, WHERE’S THAT CHESSBOARD? THAT’S RIGHT! CHESS! FUCK YOU GW!”
I know people hated Finecast, but I loved it for one reason alone: it wasn’t Fucking Metal.
Never so bad that I didn’t play a game, but the amount of times I have super-glued my hands to a model (and virtually anything within reach) trying to get a small piece to stay on has shaved years off of my life due to high blood pressure. It’s also the reason I could never get into actual model kits. NO sir, I do not wish to assemble a fully-functioning 1:72 scale V8 engine that is only going to get covered up the the hood of the Camaro anyway.
Still more relaxing than playing League of Legends, though.
