Have you guys ever heard of make your own fantasy mini molds by Prince Albert? I ran into a guy selling casting ingots and tools for making them.

Prince August, actually:

Fantasy Armies Moulds (Prince August) - Lost Minis Wiki

They've been around for a while now, and I've always wanted to give it a try sometime just to see what the end product looks like.

I have been trying various methods for casting molds for existing figurines (silicone mostly) and especially terrain pieces with varying luck. OK, to be honest, NO luck. There's a guy who sells the stuff to do so? I am usually one to do whatever it takes to get a result, but the American in me is strong when it comes to this and I'm OK with paying my way through it if possible. Any advice or help will ensure you a place in Heaven. Or Haven, your choice.

Great information. Again, I'm not a mini person but I came across it when I found this honey hole. Couple hundred DnD modules, magazines, other RPGs

Fantasy Armies moulds, including Dwarves, Elves, Knights, Orcs, Goblins, Humans and  Undead.

I must now change my underwear. I am not a smart man, this should have occurred to me long ago.
Thanks, guys.

From the casts I have seen of the Prince August molds, it looks like they're old school, and pretty worn to boot.
YMMV, of course.


Dave, get the barbarian in the corner a drink, quick!

We used to sell these back in the late 80's and early 90's in my store.  They were wildly popular for a few years and then just died off to nothing.
