Casting those minis

Ok, so yeah, pos def the sculpting minis stuff is pretty sweet. Lots of potential there. but while looking that over, i started to think about casting them when i'm done. actually making some that could be copied so i can use them again or give/sell them to friends or at the local gaming shop. So i started to look into casting. I learned a heck of a lot, and from one site in particular. this guy covers mainly terrain and his own fantastic product, but if you're any type of tabletop wargamer, this is something you will want to look in to.

Hirst Arts

Take a look at his Casting, Mold Making, and Tips and Tricks sections. I have cast a few things before, 20 poison wind globadiers to fill out my skryre skaven army (cuz really.. who wants to pay 300$ for skirmishers!!), but i learned soo much from this site in just reading over it in a week.


Sculpting Minis

Ok, so i'm sure i have mentioned that i paint warhammer minis. yes, i'm almost positive. Anyway, i have been wanting to do more. More than just paint. I have been wanting to actually craft my own minis. I've seen some amazing sculpting on and in White Dwarf magazine, and i realized, "Hey! That's green stuff!!" well, if its just green stuff, why can't i do that? i have three or four ribbons of green stuff lying around that only seem to be made into books, seals, or filler puddy for cracks and separations in the models.

Well, i have found some great resources for learning to sculpt your own minis. I've got one started. i'll have to get some pics up of him when i'm done. Here's the link list to some of the resources i've found:
