I think I can get the tutorial together until then. But I don't know if drathe agreed to your plan at all. If not, we would have to find someone else (which of course would still be more likely in the US).
Have a look ;)

Well here is just a quick thought, not sure if it's a good idea, but thought I'd share before I forgot again...
On eBay some sellers sell single figures from the expansions. Like this guy:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/gionightlab/m.html?hash=item1e68ab9aed&item=130605095661&pt=Giochi_in_Scatola&_trksid=p4340.l2562

How about somehow going together and buy a couple of these for making molds and splitting the cost?

I'm in! They are pretty expensive though. I'd give about a sixth, maybe a fifth of the money towards buying some of these but only if I see some test results first on something else. Anyone in charge of an operation like that can contact me anytime.

I would also make a contribution to the capital cost if there was evidence the results would be half good.

Those are relatvely chaep and will probably double or triple their price until the auction's end.
Have a look ;)

You 're probably right. I 'm not looking out at the moment for any of the US expansion so I'm not familiar with the prices going.
I could still contribute some money towards an enterprise like that.

Also I recently bought the 4 wizards of morcar poorly painted. When I receive them and after I strip the paint off, if they are in good condition I can lend them to a project like this (for the greater good). Again when I see the test results first.

I agree- It is a requirement to see a well made copy to continue with this plan :-)
