We recommend masters from metal for most molds allowing us to get the maximum units per mold for your spin fee.

Units are models or parts of the same type per mold. Molds with mixed figures or “family molds” will be charged the spin fee on top of the casting rate. This means a mold of 16 figures containing 8 of 2 different types will be charged a rate of $0.30 per cast with an additional $0.50 spin fee. We also have color effects which can be added at an additional charge. The common color will be a dark gray. Masters and molding below for other applications to create a Trollcast system.

I offer many optional services and products not listed in this guide. Please feel to ask me any questions or other issues that might not be included. I also offer package options and discounts for those requesting several services. Unless requested all metal castings are lead free. All resin casts are white in color unless requested. Resin dye is added to 24oz of resin to provide a consistent color.

All figures measured from bottom of feet to eyes. A standard 28mm figure will be 28mm posed from bottom of feet to the eyes. Some exceptions may be made but this is the general rule for measurements. I also can remaster issues with originals during the molding process. Not all figures or originals can be used more than one cycle.
