I would be a bit more patient and try to snag an old x-ray transformer. Persistence will pay off.
I just got mine recently after a few rounds of bidding. Ebay is not the only source. A firm that refurbishes/repairs x-ray gear might be able to help you out.
Winding high voltage transformers is a bit of an art, and a 100kV transformer will need to be potted in oil or some solid impregnant.
Also, there is a lot of work that can be done with the 12kV supply you already have.

>There have been some X-ray power supplies on E-Bay, but I have lost out on those... Seems simpler just to build my own transformer... I've got the theory - but not the technology of builing transformers... Especially a 500-1000 to one winding... However, there is one guy currently advertising bulk magnet wire on EBay...
