I am a gamer/hobbiest who likes to make my own models. I have sculpted and cast a couple of units now (all in my blog, please take a look and comment) but have struggled with getting really good shields. I must add here that I am also a Yorkshireman so I constantly challenge myself to do it all as cheap as possible! My last unit of thunderers worked out at about 30p each and were all individual. Anyway, I sculpted some shields and cast them using a press mould of Uymaru. This was good but not as good as I wanted. I then found shapeways. Has anyone else tried this? The picture below is my first design, comes in at 13mm diameter. As soon as I get the actual cast I will post a picture. This cost only $1.78 and as I own the design I plan to press mould it for a couple of pence each using miliput, but with postage from the US it is nearly E10, does anyone know of a UK company that does this? Got any comments or advice?
This was from the following sketch. If anyone is interested in doing this post below and I will go into more detail.
