I'm just gonna go ahead and say that by a glance they look like Hirst Arts molds.

Resin IS a material used for casting.
Or you can simply use plaster which are cheaper and more commonly available in stores.
I wouldn't recommend plaster if you plan to cast thin or long objects as it's somewhat fragile. But for tiles it's great.

man that dungeon set looks "DA BOMB". I have heard from a fella here in West Aust that if you are going to use plaster, then the dental plaster is tough as and a lot stronger than regular plaster. I have also found that if you want to add a bit more 'toughness' to regular plaster then add some PVA glue when mixing ;)
