Citadel finecast, excited or not?

Hello everyone, i ve just stod up from my work bench to realize gw released their citadel finecast range. First, i have to say im really excited gods finaly heard my prayers and i dont have to buy metal models anymore! Dont own any finecast model my self yet and had mixed feelings when first read they ll be resin made, especialy after i experienced forge worlds product whitch almost always come in terrible condition, tbh krieg corps inantry minis were the worst made ive ever seen if i dont count landraider custom doors comming like they received several smashes by hammer before packaging. I dont know if we can blame delivery company for this or if forge world decided to ship second/third grade products to mid europe? I dont know and i ve been really scared when first heard finecasts are going to be resin made after this terrible experience with resin models. Anyway most worries quickly dissapeared when looked for example at first impressions video from miniwargaming at youtube, then i started to have good feeling about whole thing. Minis seems to be more detailed than metal ones and whats most important, worh your money, even through price increase.
So far there are just few finecast models for skavens, and i hope all skaven metal models ll be aviable in resin soon. Till now we can enjoy new warlord, queek headtaker, deathmaster snikch and warplock jezzails(3 teams in one box!)
 Ive seen a lot of complains on the internet, even my friends complaining about gw price increase in last few weeks but i have to say wtf? I think nobody whos going outside shoping time to time cant be surprised by price increase, even stupid potatoes doubled their price last year. I know, every price increase is annoying, but if you look at prices of other major plastic kit manufacturers outside wargaming range(i dont want to name any, but  ones making planes, tanks etc. in 1/32 scale)then i think we can be glad we are games workshop customers. Dont get me wrong, this post is not payed finecast advert, i still think this whole hobby is bit overpriced, but whitch hobby isnt if you want to do it right? Its all about priorities and i think its still cheaper to purchase box of minis than goin in to pub on friday night and have a fun;-) Dont you?
