I am about to go get some green stuff with the entent of using it to mold one of my scarabs, and use the mold to make more. First off, is this even possible? Will the greenstuff work on such a thick area? Second, what is the best way to make a mold for a total encompasing area, not just a one sided surface. Also, How much Greenstuff comes in a pack? would it be smarter to go and get two packs, as im shooting for roughly 30+ scarabs. Thanks for your advice! ^_^
Sorry, open talk on casting is not allowed here.
you can't legaly do that. The models are copywritten. Its like photocopying books from the library or installing win2k on more then one box with only one lisence.
Using cast for your own use and not selling doesn't break against copyright rules, correct? It's been talked about without anyone getting warned before.
As far as 'your own use' i think its one of those things thats not legal but no one will ever go after you for it. Where would one find out more about this? (mostly i posted because i was supprised that casting was a taboo subject)
this is a thread from a casting -friendly place. they pretty much say this is a bad idea however
The last comment on that thread seems to indicate maybe your right after all. Oh well, just goes to show you, take what you learn off the internet with a grain of salt.
IMO it's fair to cast things such as weapons that you don't get enough of in the box.
But as someone said there, sooner or later you won't be able to resist making casts of entire minis and give to relatives/friends/gaming clubs.
It's like illegal downloading of games and music. If you keep it for yourself, it's very rare that you would get trouble for it.
If you sell it on some kind of black market, you'll get major busted.
Thats pretty hypocritical, GW themselves were showing a method of moulding purity seals in WD just a month or two ago.
Mixing in a little bike oil with the GS works wonders to stop it sticking.
technically, it's copyright violation. personally, i have serious problems with many aspects of modern US copyright law, but in this case, ye probably should restrain yourself
especially since it's much cheaper and more efficient to just buy the damn things (generally)
