How plastic miniatures are made

Renedra have been posting an interesting set of videos showing their manufacturing process for plastic figures. The example they are using are the forthcoming Light Cavalry box from Perry Miniatures. Renedra are the UK manufacturer who produce a huge number of historical miniatures in plastic. From Perry Miniatures to Warlord Games, to Fireforge. They all come from the Renedra factory.

The videos are fascinating and show the process in great detail. It requires far more manual work than I had realised!

You can see the full set of videos via Renedra’s Facebook page, but I have included a few below that take you through the process.

I hope you learned as much as I did!
