Now that metal is getting hard to come by for any new models from GW I am going to be buying second hand no matter what I do. I will put a post on my thoughts on finecast in its own post later on, but lets just say that I am not fond of the idea, and it is not just the obvious. Honestly if I want to start collecting once again I will most likely put together an army with older models mainly due to their character.
Nevertheless, here are the comparison shots of the two different editions that I have. I believe that I have 4th/5th metal Wood Elves and 6/7th plastic Wood Elves.
The first set has two standard new archers, and one metal archer and one kneeling scout>
The second set has two new plastic models, with one metal archer and one scout that is running:

As I have said earler I do tend to like the older metal models with their character. I believe that the older metal models do have a lot of depth in their range. Last time that I checked it was atleast a dozen of the standard archers for them.
It is still something that I want to think on and something that I am not planning on doing any time soon however.
