    A whole figure might not be possible. Individual parts without a lot of undercuts, no probs but fully three-dimensional parts? Not so much.

    You\'ll spend more than that if you want to make a decent resin cast of them. Somewhere between $20 & $40 will get you going, but you\'d be able to make a WHOLE bunch of copies that you can only use for your use.

    it would be easier to adjust this to suit your needs, obviously with minis your only looking at grams not lbs of silicone

    Thanks MattSterbenz for the article.
    After moving,I was missing 3 shields for my mounted wight and I had a errant knight who was missing his right leg, half his sword and his head after fighting with the furry white beast of Waf... Thank to this article I could make it all right :D
