Thanks for all the education on polyurethane versus silicon! I just finished up my first purchase of the polyurethane stuff over the weekend so I'll take a look at the silicon stuff moving forward.

here's thte stuff i use
http://www.tomps.com/tomps-value-range-rtv-silicone-c-55_1_7_50.html


I'm going to do some research to see if I can find this in the US. It looks great for the price (and looking at your stuff it obviously works well). Odds are I'll stick with Smooth-On as it's easy enough to get around me. My local art store may even have some in stock!


It's designed to be used without spending on expensive vacuum equipment. It's cheaper in this case. And it's better for your health!!! :)

First thanks for your helpful explanations. Second, I've been doing all of this in the garage (with the big door open about two feet away, so basically outside) with a gas mask that has an organic filter system (I think that's what it's referred too) so hopefully the precautions help! If not, I'm making my neighbors all think I'm pulling some poorly conceived Breaking Bad stunt for no reason!

Nice one Alyster. Thumbs up on the mask with organic vapor filter and particulates! That's exactly what you need.
Now get some blue resin pigment and complete you transformation into Hiesenburg! ;)

Okay my mint thorian has arrived back with me safely.
Do we need to set up any other castings of this guy so we've got a supply of bits/moulds/masters?

oh.. my... god!
how about a youtube series featuring the design, sculpt and casting of figures, a Breaking Bad setyle narrative but actually showcasing how miniature making occurs!

k, i'll be quiet.. it's the cider talkin'!
i make no apologies, i warned you my ability to roll ones was infectious...

Great cast mate! I'll grab one of those off you if that's OK :D


Almost done my sculpt. Just a few final touches and I'll post some pics up. Possibly later today.

My Smooth On Silicon mold stuff should be arriving Tuesday! Yay for progress!!!

There is a picture of me somewhere from Halloween a couple years back where I shaved my head/beard into a full Heisenburg and made blue rock candy for a party. I made a passable Walter White! My wife wouldn't let me pass the candy out to kids in small baggies though. In retrospect it was probably the right decision (considering we had just moved into the neighborhood).

Umm, I definitely want one! If you have a spare PM me about payment/trades.

Okay, so, who's bidding on those Imperial Citizens? (I think they're both dockworkers, or a dockworker and a welder?).

Yeah, but it's the first time I've seen them come up for sale on ebay.
You grabbing those citizens then?
Or is someone else going to do that - they run out of time tonight, just after midnight, maybe around 1am.

Someone has put a massive dollar bid on these.
It's just gone up to over $70 each not counting postage. Holy crow.

E: I really hope that either we're winning it, or that we're not. Winning because need for parts. Not winning because the cost is extortionate.

E2: that's kind of depressing. I hope at least it's a recaster, because if it's a collector like with the las weapons I am going to be supremely hacked off.

Whilst I could get them I am loathe to spend so much (bare in mind customs charges on top) on models that I don't actually like. I am getting one of those Fire Warriors though. They're cool.

EDIT:
Gav, cool post count!! someone had the Lasweapons pack?
