I went on ebay to scout some expansion stuff......No luck but I tell you only the real Zargon would charge that much money for some of those expansions!

Well, I have recently purchased some Ogres, together they provide me with all ogre parts. AMAIN, the Ogre miniatures are the same in the different expansion packs. The ogres are somewhat hard to find, but compared to the American-only expansions they are as common as dungflies. Wolfes and elfen archer are a good beginning. you (uncle Zargon) might start right away with these, there would be many people around here interested (including myself). I will copy the ogres soon, but not just now (I have some other projects pending). There is a certain chance the plastic will suffer a little from the chemicals of the two component silicon, but as some people actually have copied minis from the basic game with this method, without noticing any damage, the reaction, if any, is so small to be unnoticeable.
Have a look ;)

Or at least an update. Is this thing up and running, or are you still considering how to tackle it? :-)

Up and running.
I had purchased a can of silicone, but lend it to a friend who wanted to cast some skeletons for warhammer. I didn't think he would use it all up, but he did (which is OK, as he will cast a skeleton army for me, too, but still left me out of silicone).
I have now purchased Another can and will make the moulds of the ogres this week, when possible at the home of another friend, who has a video camera, to make a tutorial.
Still looking for a way to do (or let someone do) the moulds for the ectensions I don't own myself.
Have a look ;)

Met the "other" friend - the one with the camera - today. He doesn't think it a good idea to film at his place, as his children would certailny want to "help". He will lend me the camera next week. I will wait until then. I think a tutorial would be very helpful, so that El Flesh can make the molds of the frozen Horror minis. It's certanly easier to find someone in the US who has those than here in Europe.
Have a look ;)

Yup, I know - but once you volunteered to travel to drathe's place and make the molds there, so he doesn't have to risk sending them by post.
And even if drathe won't agree, it's in general a good idea to visit the owner - it's more probable that someone will agree to have his minis copied at home rather then sendig them abroad. And we'll find more easily someone who owns these minis in the US then here in Europe (at least I'm an Old Worlder, dunno where Uncle Z. lives). So it's up to you. Of course, there's no duty, you musn't feel pressed to do this, just thought you wanted to. That is, of course, if we find some cooperative "owner" at all...
Have a look ;)
