If you’re not specifically looking for plastic I’ve seen Metal versions come up on eBay recently.

The minis I’ve seen are set of minis for:
    - The original set (Gargoyle, and Main Heroes. Others may be available.)
    - Wizards of Morcar (all Wizards, didn’t check for the Henchmen)
    - Against the Ogre Horde
    - Mage of the Mirror (no female elf, no elf warrior)
    - Frozen Horror (all frozen horror base monsters, didn’t check for henchmen)

They also were doing the Gargoyle and the original heroes.

Check with this seller for availability. Drop them a message, they also have done custom orders.

Most work is polished metal, on felt bottomed bases. I’ll see if I can get some pictures posted.


I'd prefer plastic, as it's lesser weight means far less paint chipping from handling. Do they ever do plastic?

No, they just have posted up metal versions. The only non-metal versions have been the resin 3D prints.
The best bet for painting metals is either enamel based primers (like either Testors or Tamiya) or use an artist gesso. And then a clear coat afterwards to seal the paint. (That being said the polished metal versions were pretty sweet looking.)

Those look beautiful, are they plastic cast from molds or 3d printed?

Is there a site or anything? I don’t need repros but wondering if he has any customs in the original style.

Resin printed look very good, but these look better!

Resin is likely not as durable either, depending on what type of plastic he uses.

Are they hard plastic like the originals? Do they seem durable?
