Oh, in that case, reason why his recasts are so bad, is that he is too lazy to do it properly.

When it came to designing molds, where Goldenboy said "good enough," Bill tried again.

Does anybody know what the current prices are for the recasts.
I only have the basic game.
So I'm looking for the Ogre Horde, Frozen Horde, Wizards of Morcar and other expansions that I forgotten.
Time will tell, sooner or later time will tell

Just wait for some years : I'll buy a 3D printer soon or later.
I just wait for a good price (it's not affordable around 400€).

I see those copies are made by 2 different ways :

the first is a kind of bubble gum and you put your mini inside. you put it on the water and wait for some minutes.
Then u open it slowly to get a mould.

the second is a real mould made with plaster or resin : it's longer but the details are better.

Finally, old minis are not so cool to reproduce.
Of course for die hard fan but after several tries I gave up the idea to copy it.
I saw some metal figurines on ebay and some bad plastic re-casts but first this issue is illegal and secondly it's pointless when you see the prices they are doing for a such thing.
Better buy new minis to replace the old ones.

Bills casts are pretty good. Sharp details, if they were undercoated in the exact same base colors as the originals, you may not be able to tell the difference. :) No disappointment at all. :D Worth every penny. :)
