Do you need figures – maybe for units for a game like Combat Patrol™, Dragon Rampant or similar? Or sci-fi? Or you have something you need recast? Maybe I can help!
I have often been approached as to selling some of the miniatures and output of my projects that appear in this blog. I am open to this, and now through the wisdom of PayPal I can accommodate in most cases, and this would help fund future projects of mine. After all, this is a hobby, not a job!
I most often cast figures (well, recast) from long-defunct lines and companies. I have no desire to violate anyone’s intellectual property. I started learning how to cast because I could never find enough figures to make up units of older figures that I found to be cool. If I can buy from a manufacturer, I do, and I do not cast those. I don’t keep inventory, but I do have all my molds. I also can easily make molds, but learning to cast is not easy.
Trading is always an option as well!
I also have a few original creations, such as the Mark 1 Sphere tank.
I also have the ability to make molds and cast figures that others might want for their games. I do not spin cast – I make molds and gravity cast using a mix of tin and lead, (though I am trying to reduce my use of lead). Right now I use between 67-75% tin with the rest being lead, antimony, and probably some bismuth or other trace metals. Needless to say, these figures are not for young children who may ingest any lead.
I can also make molds, but this is laborious and I would not want anyone to be harmed casting, so if you want something molded, I can, but the risk from using my molds to cast metal or resin figures (or any other medium) is not on me – you assume any risk from your casting efforts.
So, if you are interested in buying something, we can discuss! Send me an email to MarkAMorin@aol.com with your interests, and time frames. I’ll be prompt in letting you know what I can do. If there are intellectual property issues, we can discuss – as I will check before I agree to anything of course to respect others rights as I should.
