One of my friends is currently creating his own rulesset, for a small skirmish wargame, and we would like to be able to create our own models, but with the ability to create 10-15 when we have sculpted the original.
We are looking at methods of doing this, and so far we have been suggested Vacuum forming and resin casting.
Does anyone know of any effective methods?
We will be creating models and terrain if we can find a good method.
PS: before anyone suggests that i will be using this in an illegal way, i will not, our aim is to craft the models completely independantly of GW and PP, we could quite easily make models using GW bits, but we want them to be different and seperate to GW.
There are many methods, altough the first question would be if you want to cast the models in metal or in resin - that choice determines the types of materials you'll be using for the molds.
From what I know its the resin that's more expensive.
Not sure if it is actually easier to handle than metal, since I dimly recall hearing something about toxic fumes.
These links can come in quite handy for you:

Probably not what you're looking for, but you could always Greenstuff them? I've seen one or two articles out there where people basically do just that and if you're good the results can be amazing.
I'm sure you could give it a go - if you're willing and able to make 15 unique models then I reckon that makes you about as well qualified as anyone! If I tried I would probably end up with a few things that looked like rocks and in an asylum:drinking:
My hat's off to you - for pure bravery!
Best of luck!:happy:
