I have a Blood Bowl treeman and his arm was terrible miscast.
As games workshop no longer makes the figure or parts, i need someone who can make a new arm.
I have a 2nd gw treeman that has a arm that i can send along if you need it to make a mold to cast a new arm.
I will gladly pay for the service.

as it would be illegal I doubt anyone will want to, if you did it yourself you would be ok possibly

Go to Hobby Lobby, or a similar craft store and invest in one of the DIY resin casting kits. You can make the mold yourself in a Dixie cup and mix up the resin easily enough.
I don't think anyone will cry foul if your purpose is true…

Easiest way is to bend some wire into the pose you want, cover it with tissue paper and white glue to get the gnarled wood texture you want, dress it up with some twigs and leaves, pin into the mini, then paint. Or look on auction sites for the spare part or a badly painted mini to salvage it from. Having someone cast it for you, or doing it yourself, will cost 10x or more than it is worth, not to mention the time wasted, when you could simply buy the part…

(yeah, not what you wanted to hear… )
