    Is this legal?

    I was always wondering this. I know that people make moulds and use resin and all that, but is it legal to make moulds of models for conversions?

    For example, I was assembling my daemhunters dreadnought and ran out of purity seals, so I said I'd make a simple mould and cast with green stuff?

    Is this allowed? I mean is it like CD's and DVD's where you can copy them once it's only for your personal use?

    Thanks...

    Would anyone be able to prove that those pieces you made were not GW bought and cast by you...

    If its a GW model then theres gonna be few problems in you casting parts to put on it. Last I checked GW does not own the rights to making moulds for models, just don't go around making moulds of space marfines and then selling them.

    As far as I know, and read on this forum, it's not allowed at all.

    Well, if he's making purity seals out of green stuff, I would consider the mold just another way of sculpting them. And sculpting purity seals out of greenstuff is entirely allowed. Just don't cast an entire model.

    As long as you don't sell them.

    Somewhere in White Dwarf (around issue 290 or so), GW showed how to make simple molds for purity seals by using Green Stuff and a pencil. I'm thinking that purity seals are probably ok to copy for your own use, but anything bigger (or sold) would be a big NO-NO.

    Purity Seals and essentially beautification details are allright, IMO.

    I think it depends on the use and intent personally.


    If you cast a piece from a model for conversion purposes, I see less problem with it that just casting models for play. Unless it's friendly, and you aren't try to sell them, or just make GW lose customers.

    After all, if we don't buy from GW and they go out of business, then we'll really be in a pickle.

    The day GW go out of business is the day hell freezes over.

    Honestley though, if I wanted to convert a model, say put a dead tyranid or something on it, I'd have to buy a whole box of tyranids which would set you back a fair bit. Outlandish if you ask me...
