The main reason not to buy recast SoB is because everybody knows the army is mostly metal and if you show up with a bunch of plastic sisters some eyebrows are gonna be raised.

Of course if you just play in a club where nobody gives a shit it's no big deal, but at my store it's pretty much known that if you show up with fake shit and the staff find out, you're done son. As in kicked from that store for life. And the white knights who frequent the place won't hesitate to report you either.

GW shill detected.

I was hanging out at my unfriendly local GW store the other day and the guy there was receiving a shipment. I snuck a peek at the invoice while his back was turned.

Rhino cost: $9 CAD. I watched as he slapped a $45 price tag on there.

While a lot of start of miniature manufactures have no clue how much a mold or the machine to use the mold actually is (on the order of millions from what i understand) 3D printing is changing that.

GW can eat giant wang.

Being ignorant isn't against the law. The prosecution would have to prove that you are neither ignorant nor competely stupid.

The former can be demonstrated conclusively if they show that you in fact have a large collection of Warhammer and have been playing for a while. And if you are in fact not completely stupid, it would be simple to prove as well.

So if you bought from Chinaman more than once, the inference is that you discovered after the first shipment that Chinaman sold fakes, and when you ordered a second time, the inference is that you intended to order counterfeits.

This. Worst case scenario is customs seize your stuff. That's it. There is no investigation or prosecution.

Customs open packages at random and check the contents and description.

Most likely scenario if they open your package is "....it says its models, it looks like models, let it through we have bigger fish to fry".

If there were loads of packages addressed to the same person coming from China labelled as "study aids" which were in fact packed tightly with Rolexs then that would lead to an investigation.

The only other thing is that they could query the value of your package if they open it. Because the chinaman puts everything down as a gift or industrial sample with a really low value. So if you're very unlucky you could have to pay VAT and Import duties. But this seems unlikely.

I placed an order just last week, this is the first time I order after they moved to a new site.

I ordered twice before when they were still Zhanchui on Taobao and both times I recieved everything I ordered and some free bits (got a free DKoK tank commander, a whole fucking Brass Scorpion and various bits for free!).

The resin smells like a toxic factory when you open the bags it comes in so I recommend doing that outside and letting it air out, the material is also pretty hard so if you cut hard into it, you risk stuff cracking, but other than that it's good. There have never been a single sculpting fault on any of the items I've gotten from them, unlike GW's failcast of which I've had to get several models replaced due to big ass holes in the models.

It takes some time, shipping from China and all, but I've been satisfied both times.

It's not only a giant hassle, it's also lower god damn quality since it's fine cast. Even though chinamans resin is brittle, it's very detailed and holds paint fine.

I'm a fucking shill because I would pay 41 bucks for a squad of metal aspect warriors but when 11.10$ gets me a higher quality product faster? Seriously?

So how does it work? I email him all the SKUs of the shit I want and then...I paypal him or what?

He'll send your paypal an invoice, you pay it, he'll give you a tracking number and shipping confirmation

Ive ordered numerous times for myself and for friends. Always happy. Great quality, and one time my warp spider squad had one model with a bubble in his ankle that broke while shipping. They gave me credit for the value of that model. I fixed him with GS and saved some $$.

How do I order? Is there a minimum value of order? I heard at a certain point you get cheap postage?

>CCON actually does a couple of things in metal and people here on 4chan have posted their own metal recasts they've made themselves before.

It's true, y'know. Sometimes, they do!

I've made all of my Mordheim warbands under $100.

As for Warmaster, got the stuff for like $50 from a shady guy in his clearance sale... possibly recasts but given that the original were pewter as well, it's something I can live with.

Because it's only a few hundred for a large army that can be spread over years.

Even with second hand models or recasts you'd have to be lucky or savvy.

Not really even buying direct from GW you can get 2k points for under 500, possibly under 350 depending on faction and how conversion happy you are.

I've had some bad experience with recast bases. I ordered some from the original Chinaman. They looked mostly fine, but had the tremendous problem of not being round.

>not round

As in, "not perfectly circular?"
Or as in, "square?"

Yes. As in square. I am too stupid to differentiate a circle from a square.

You must take up the challenge of making casts for us anons who do not posses the ability.

I am aware, but I am hoping to appeal to the anon who casted them.
I have not the abilities to do it, but would love to get some of these old and most importantly OOP models without blowing my wallet on eBay. especially here in Aus.

I, for one, will gladly try it. There's only one shop here (Eastern Europe ftl) and the stuff is way to expensive to be worth it unless you occupy a boss position and have the spare time to actually play it. Besides, what's GW going to do? Waste precious time and money coming to a backwater country just to sue me? You people should really chill out, I bet if the people here would have enough funds and the company wouldn't be assholes, they'd gladly pay for legit stuff.

You can always diy. The dude who made these says what metal and silicone he uses (if you follow the conversation) here:


This is how you make a two part mould for metal casting:
