The photo above is the two-part resin mix I'm using, again from TOMPS. It's much easier to use than the silicone as there isn't any fiddly equation - just 1:1 weight of either part and stir. That said, I found transformation to be really quick - it was a translucent liquid for about a minute then suddenly a white solid almost before my eyes. This meant the first effort went poorly: as in "solid mass at bottom of plastic cup without pouring any" poorly.

As you can see, there's a lot of excess resin and a fair bit of flash, but the figures are recognisable as their masters. Here's some shots comparing the originals and first case.

The front of the Squat was OK but the back had some holes in backpack and the very top of the helmet. However, this is pretty straightforward to fix with Milliput.

The true test of all this is, now that I've cleanead them up and tried to fill in the holes, how will they look painted? The detail level seems mostly fine, but on the table can they pass for their originals? Even just a spray of undercoat and a splash of wash to show up the detail would probably seal the deal.
