The polyester resin is hard and cannot be bended, but I don't cast with it anymore. The ones I am casting now are with modeling resin, which is like plastic, bendable and quite soft.

Where did you buy modeling resin?

I will gladly buy the plastic Elf Quest Pack minis when my group gets that far (they just started with the very first quest this week, so it won't be for a couple months at least). But I really wish you offered the Female Barbarian in plastic since the person playing the Barbarian in my group is a Female and I'd like for her to not have to use the male. Ah well.

I'm floored by the quality of the recasts that have been shown.

Wow I just had to reply to say your castings are amazing, I thought about doing this myself once upon a time but having seen these I know my results couldn't come close.

I'm sure this was already covered in the last 17 pages at some point but what are you charging for sets of expansion models?
