On Easter Sunday after dinner, Chris Smedile and I were able to crank out 6 Archive (1981) Star Ducks (#2200 from the “Star Rovers” line) and 22 Roomans (both types from Ral Partha “Rooman War Party”). I made two molds earlier in the day and we had fun trying to get the casting process correct.
Thanks to Chris there was a good number produced. Two of the Star Ducks did not have their ray guns fully formed, but ended up looking like they had submachine guns, so I kept them. The other four were good, and had flash that looked like the guns were firing – an unexpected bonus.
The Roomans mostly came out, but some were remelted for recasts. Some were missing an ear, which my daughter Ellen Morin described as “battle damage”!
Still have more to do but having fun making them – and even more fun doing them with Chris!
