Second hand miniature trading services are for those who have wargame and boardgame miniatures or scenery that they don't need anymore or for those who would you like to collect miniatures on a budget. You can find cheap, used miniatures and terrain in these webshops.

I collected the second hand miniature webshops I know of. While not strictly webstores, I decided to also include trading groups for the sake of completion. I've listed the second hand trading services by area.

One thing you should be aware of is that some of the second hand miniatures can be illegal copies, so before buying them make sure to check it's legality with the seller. Even if you are okay with buying them, you should know what to expect.

Miniature sculpting commission services: When you really need a wargame or boardgame miniature but you can't find it on the market, you can always commission a sculptor. I've listed the commission miniature sculpting services by area.

Physical sculpting: The sculptor creates a physical copy while sculpting it. If you already have a caster, ask them about their requirements of the original sculpt. Some sculpts need to be larger than the intended size of the miniature, some need to withstand intense heat, so get the information before the sculpt is done.

3D sculpting: The sculptor creates a virtual miniature that can be 3D printed. Before you assume the sculptor will give you a miniature ready to cast, ask them whether they'll create a file ready to print, will they send you a printed copy, and will they create a physical copy of the miniature, ready to be casted. Don't assume a 3D sculptor will do any of these, beyond creating a 3D design. It's also recommended to find 3D sculptors that have some history with creating castable miniatures, so they'll have a better idea what you expect of them.

Miniature casting services: Do you have an own wargame or boardgame miniature sculpt you'd like to have some copies of? You can cast as many as you want if you pay for casting services. I've included some 3D printing services that specialize in miniatures. I've listed the commission miniature casting services by area.

There are two kinds of moulds you can use to cast miniatures:

Rubber moulds: They are made of rubber, cheaper to produce. You can cast metal or resin miniatures from these.

Steel moulds: They are made of steel, have a longer life, but more expensive to produce. You can cast polystyrene, PVC miniatures this way.

Prodos UniCast: An interesting version of steel moulds, seems to be cheaper than the usual moulds.
