I made some copies. (yep I own each expansion)
The result is not good to me (some details are deleted) so I ordered a new resin and it should sove the problem and I will make the new tests this week end and will let you know.

I've also started to cast the board in resin :

Each square of the corridor part is "single" so the possibilities to make a quest is now unlimited and interesting !

I've also done the Descent board in resin some months ago :

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Any news about this?

I REALLY can be tempted by some expansion minis too, especially the Wizards of Morcar wizards, or the polar warbears.

Best wishes.

The ones I want more than any are the Barbarian woman and the Elf woman.

I would absolutely buy the expansion minis from you. Paper cutouts just don't cut it. They make me sad. If I acquire a box with the minis still attached to sprues would that tree be useful for your casting purposes? I could see how it might streamline the process. I can't afford to donate, but if the occasion arose I would absolutely be willing to lend in order to make the lives of suck a wonderfully dedicated group easier.
Sure it's pretty scary when the witch lord returns but what you should really be afraid of is "Resurrection of the Witch Lord". Resurrected baddies always come back more threatening than ever, usually kind of demonic with wings and horns and hell fire to announce their arrival. Think Gannondorf or Mother Brain from Super Metroid.

Ha I never saw this thread! Last week I tried to cast just bodies from some warhammer minis. It was horible. I used oven baked clay and pressed models in then baked. Every thing went well until I tried to remove the new clay from the mold. I could never extract it nice enough to bake it. I don't know the right way to do it I was just messing around.

Even with properly made molds it is a serious labor of love. I have molds for making clear resin dice sets with four leaf clovers inside. In spite of how simple dice shapes are you would be amazed how much care is necessary to get it right. Unfortunately I was completely at someone else's mercy when it came to making the molds, or I would have increased my Heroquest minis years ago. I'm not sure I'd have the necessary skill and knowhow to make such complex shapes anyhow. I'm unimaginably excited someone else is interested.

Some guy on ebay is selling recast minis, but he is certainly raising the price for the more popular minis. Just out of curiosity I did the math to find out what it would cost to buy the minis for all of the rare expansions without repeating minis and found that the cost is a whopping $319.88 before you calculate all of the shipping!!! Wow. To think that some people will actually pay lots of money for this game(I actually believe this by the way). Goes to show you how much money the copyright holders are missing out on.
