Yes. Exactly. FUD would be preferable. I've just received Mel's over-sized Home One in FUD and the price increase was about 81%. Looking at a similar increase on this item puts it at about £319 (€409)... Hardly 'thousands'. At that price, I'd buy one on pay day! Given the size of it and comparing it to, say, a Forgeworld model of the same size, I'd say that's fair. Alternatively, you could get it in WSF but have no detail and serious issues trying to paint it. If you want to know how bad that could be, then go and look at one of the posters on Mel's Vindicator. Ergo, my point still stands: It's a masterpiece of design but in this material, there's no chance it will be truly realised. I'm pretty sure Mel knows this and that there's a technical reason for not offering another material.
