I have only seen one tutorial and it is a bit complicated. Do you have any ways of making some of these or do you know where to but them cheap?

Thanks

They're pewter castings. Mega Minis used to be called Hobby Products & were produced in Germany; most of the rereleased line is at the same prices as the were back in the 90s. Cool, huh?!

Somemore are available even more reasonable ones in resin from Armor Cast: http://armorcast.com/store/index.php?cPath=120_27

There is also pardulon.com.
They make some beautiful resin fantasy buildings and a huge range of resin accessories to go with them.
Very Happy

Edit: Ah, it seems Pardulon are taking a break for a few weeks and not taking any new orders at the moment. Sad
Hopefully they'll be back soon!

I havne't seen anyone mention the accessory mold from www.hirstarts.com

Mold # 85 found on this page http://www.hirstarts.com/molds/molds2.html

You can cast your own barrels, crates etc. $34 US isn't bad.

The only thing with this mold is that you need a strong plaster for the thinner pieces.

$ 34 not bad ... mmmm ...
I must admit I'm looking for cheaper ways, even if that means I have to roll up glued paper ...
It's amazing what is available at Hirst's, but I find it rather pricey.

Thanks for the link though !

Rusty Rails offers some REALLY nice & reasonably priced barrels, boxes, et all: http://rustyrail.com/BoxesandstuffCastingsOScalePage1.htm . These are 1:48 scale; SO they are slightly larger than 28mm [1:56].

A sample:

Yeah I understand the budget thing.

And sure you might be able to find cheaper stuff for a particular project, but the way I looked at it is this.

One mold = $34 = lifetime of casting as many barrels as I want.

Any ideas for a nice sized barrel to strap on the back of a model?

I love barrelpacks!

Or Packbarrels!

if you have legos, and know how to make a simple mold

just make a mold of a lego barrel and cast it in plaster, some times you need to add some putty to hide the lego logo but after that you cant tell
