Check out more details below of the services we offer and get in touch to talk to us about your project.
moulds for metal casting
Our many years of experience in mould making includes a diverse range of projects, from replica car parts, pewter giftware and jewellery, media industry awards and of course wargames miniatures. Master and production moulds are made using high quality silicone. We can advise you on all aspects of the mould making process including where to make separations on your model if needed. If your model needs cuts, connections or repair work we can also do that.
Guide prices (may vary dependent on job)
Master mould £60.00.
Production Mould (9" silicone) £60.00.
Set of metal master castings £45.00.
Moulds for resin casting
Whether it's a simple open mould or a complex cut mould we make them all to the same high standard offering the finest detail reproduction available. As with metal casting moulds, we can advise on, and undertake, cutting models into separate parts if required.
Prices begin at £25.00 and are dependent on size of mould and complexity.
Metal & Resin Casting
Metal casting in lead alloy or lead-free pewter offers excellent detail reproduction and affordability. Combined with our mould making expertise we can provide castings that are highly detailed and with minimal mould lines and sprue marks.
We also have experience in pewter finishing including polishing and antiquing
There is no minimum casting order size and the castings are priced per unit making your costings very easy to calculate.
If you want the very best detail reproduction then resin casting is the option to go for. It is also light, so ideal for larger miniatures where the weight of the miniature could add significantly to shipping costs. We use polyurethane resin with vacuum and pressure casting to give clean, bubble free castings.
As well as standard resin casting for miniatures and kits we can produce items using fillers to create different finishes including bronze and brass metallic effects.
Custom Scenery, Model Making & Painting
Do you want a custom scenery piece, anything from a single building or hill to a complete wargames table? We can make it for you.
We can convert 2D boardgame boards and RPG maps into spectacular 3D gaming settings.
If you don't have the time to build and paint scenery kits let us do it for you. Not only will it save you time, we can also make your basic kits look amazing by adding our own custom parts and using paint effects.
