Back to the Moldmaking and Casting Message Board. Note: I am not recasting miniatures and do not have the means or capabilites to recast miniatures. You decide you want more so you cast your own using the one you purchased as the master. Let's say that you want "X" amount of a particular figure, but the miniatures company that makes it can't or won't supply you with that particular figure, and you even would foot the bill in the extra time and expense to produce them, and the only way you can get that particular figure en masse is through recasting, but you won't be bootlegging the miniature for personal profit.
Wouldn't they be cheating themselves out of a potential repeat customer, not to mention someone who could spread the word about their product? Copying work that is not your own is stealing, plain and simple.
Recasts: 3 reasons why we need to avoid illegal or unauthorized miniature copies
No different then shop lifting or stealing from the manufacturer. Yes it's wrong, and even though you may not be profiting you're using the originals to produce X number of copies, rather than paying the manufacturer for the equivalent number of minis. Even losing out on a small sale makes a difference for the majority of manufacturers who are small niche outfits, often doing a service to the hobby by producing minis that the big boys GW, Reaper wouldn't touch.
Also, the few people that I have encountered that recasted for "their own use" eventually couldn't resist casting for all of their gaming buddies, relatives, etc. Here's a simple question you should ask yourself: if you're a manufacturer, would you invest time, effort and money into creating something knowing that you will only ever sell one copy of it?
Isen't that what you're saying here, that it's ok to steal someone else's work so long as you are not 'profiting' from it? Yes it's illegal but I've often wondered about the morality of casting a few for personal use if the original has been out of production for 15 plus years. There were a few made in the 70s I'd like to have a few of but have not be produced since. I've tried getting some of these on eBay but many have not been seen by me in 20 years much less in quantity.
It will always be wrong, saxondog. You must suffer the inability to have these 'unavailable' minis or risk the peril of your conscience gnawing at your entrails daily. Remember recasting is wrong, kids. However, charging an obscene amount for a single figure in fact entire lines of figures is good and healthy for the hobby and also makes the shareholders happy with their dividends.
If you are clever enough to recast,then become clever enough to learn to sculpt your own masters. Theft by any other name ie still stealing. Even if a figure has not been produced or even seen for many years there is economic damage to the owner of the copyright. Recently, there has been a movement in the miniatures industry where small companies purchase the old moulds and masters of now defunct companies and "revive" the range. Also, you limit the value of the copyright if the original owner decides to sell the range.
Who would want to take a risk and revive the range if it was known that people were knocking off copies? Just because you want it and it is no longer available or in your opinion is over priced, does not in any way change the fact that it is wrong and flat-out illegal. However, sculptures are specifically exempted.It's pretty obvious that people don't read the article, or just keep hoping.
There really is no more reason for secrecy.
I bought this item off aliexpress. As I keep stressing, there are no more recasts on that site. It looks like they wanted to open towards other markets, and removed all copyright infringing items. I won't be sending out future emails. Saturday, January 10, Chinese recasts of miniatures.
Important announcement. I've received a lot of comments asking for the site that I used to buy this model. The first notifiable difference compared to an original miniature is the boxing. While GW and other, high-budget companies offer a nice packaging a cardboard box with artwork on itthe recast arrived in a rough cardboard box, wrapped in bubble wrap. Simple, pragmatic, nothing fancy. Assembly instructions included: none, whereas official miniatures include them in the box. Thankfully, this is a relatively simple model there are no customization options, you can only assemble it in one wayso there's no way to get lost.
Still, I wouldn't start assembling a, let's say, Flaming Chariot without some instructions. Casting quality: depends on what we compare it to.
GW plastic is much better, however, that's an unfair comparison, as this is a finecast model. I've never unboxed one, but here's a post about it from a fellow blogger: A painting chaos: Warriors of Chaos Be'lakor Daemon Prince Finecast unboxing So unlike plastic, there are a lot of miscast remnants - a lot more than on the finecast model as seen above.
