I have the mould for the Marine Helmet currently sitting on my Table :) You're welcome to one or two (or more) of them. I have to cast a coupe up for someone anyway.

Easier to find that me diving into mould mountain here, if it's on your table already! :P

Just curious, so at this point has about everything released been recast by someone yet?   I ask because I've quite a few original figures that I would be willing to lend out to be cast up if needed and there is one figure I don't have I should like to at least get a recast of.

I've made a fair few moulds of the originals but no where near all of them. I have the whole range except for one of the Dock workers.

Thantos is the man to speak to regarding casts though. He's the professional after all.

Well, the citizen with the polearm looking thing is the only figure  I don't have that I know of.  With the exception of the unreleased items that is.  Thanks for the info.

A somewhat more literal interpretation of my thread title, is there any chance any of our casters might be able to either A: get hold of or B: recast a backpack or two for me for sisters of battle at 28mm? I can't find any spare backpacks on ebay (and GW has long since stopped selling bits packs :-\), and I have a sister with a flamer in desperate need of a backpack.
So it's either a recast, or I'll have to do some annoying fiddly work in an attempted conversion, using the lower half of a space marine backpack as the core, while trying to figure out how to do that upper bit properly without all the space marine bulk.
Cheers.

Massively old thread, but have been thinking of dabbling with silicone/resin once more and making some molds and casts of rarer parts/models.

I’ll be making some two-part box molds of pieces from various kits that are either rarer or too valuable to use the original, and that would have useful conversion potential, such as a varied selection of rarer legs/arms/heads etc.

@MarcoSkoll - I’m wondering, looking back through this thread - are you in possession of the ‘bloody Paulus’ conversion kit for sgt. stone? That head and arms have been on my wish list for years.

Any suggestions from the group as to what I should aim to make molds of, and who’d be interested in what...?

I would love a valhallan ice warrior set, or the genestealer hybrid sets. Oh and obviously any unreleased bits

society's have become polarized. Not just in politics but across all culture. There's anger at the inequality and ever growing corruption and a wide spread distrust of elites. Yet at the same time, there's a paralysis. a sense that no one knows how to escape from this.

i'll always put my hand up for more genestealer cultist bits too (both the genestealer hybrid heads and the arms). You can never have too many cultists! (Lord Borak had casted them a few years back and may have some pointers?)

And i thought sister repentia's bolter arms always looked pretty cool.

I think more of the different types of chainswords would also be good (the giant one and the two longer chainswords).
