The female barbarian is originally blue.


Yes, the original is blue. You can just paint/spray it and then it will be hard to tell the difference from the original. :D

I have the female elf and barb incoming. When I get them, I'll have them painted up real good to show off the quality of the reproduction.

Just to show off the quality of my recasts, here's a picture of my painted female elf.
The base is sculptured by me.

I just opened my box of replicas from Bill Dask. Dumbstruck was probably the best way to describe how I felt. Everything figure from all the Quest Packs (not including KK and RotWL) were present. The Wizards of Morcar, and the Orgre Horde leaders, were cast in a grey resin. These castings were so fine, that on the Wizards I thought he'd sent me originals. I looked at them closer and realized that the injection point (little circle indent) had simply been replicated as well. That's micro-detail, folks. None of the miniatures were in bad shape, save for one Ice Gremlin with a broken weapon. The break was very clean, however, and it reconnected with a dot of glue and even held in place without adjustment. A few of their bases need sanding, which I can do easily. Others' bases were smooth and level.

If you want these magnificent replicas, there is just no better way to get them. With a bit of spit and polish (and by spit, I mean an airbrush) you could make these guys look identical to originals, just out of the box.
