15mm Sci Fi Metal Miniatures

Let the process begin......

The figures

First steps taking today!  Making the master mould. First up aligning the figures in the silican based mould and adding the alignement studds. Also removed the centre so it fits into the machinary for spinning.

The mould is then added to the compressor base (want for a better word) with lots of silican spray to help release it

Its then added to this beast and vulcanised for about an hour at 110 degrees.

Once cooked the mould is removed and ready for cutting the channels and feeds. This is were cuts are made to allow the flow of metal on spinning. Once completed its ready for some master figures!

Before it looks like I know what this is all about...Id like to thank Mike from Black Hat Miniatures. Mikes provided me with the means, skills and time to start this process and its his skills thats running the show! So big thanks to Mike

This week......

I will be mostly making master and production moulds for my new figures.....

Im particularly excited by this and will include a diary and pics on how its done.

When I say this week, I mean if and when I get the chance after dealing with the kids..... The week after may be more realistic as I will be on gardening leave. Notice handed in last Friday and Ive a few weeks before my new job!

Production .......

Thanks all

Im excited to say that Ill be beginning the production phase very soon. Im going to take a final look at the figures and decide on any modifications and then begin the master and production moulding process. A good friend is going to help me out with this process and casting the miniatures. Hes in the business with years of experiance, so Im hoping it will be a painless experiance. Best of all, he lives round the corner from me :)

As for the modifications, Im thinking of adding some sights to a few weapons, grenade launcher and a rpg armmo backpack such as this one to a ammo carrier

More news to follow....
