Yes I am still here!!!
Having done a bit of reading about the world of 3d printing, I can see another shift in the wargaming firmament happening over the next couple of years as prices drop and the technology improves. Already there are some amazing items being created which can be obtained pretty easily but expensively. But how long before we put in an order for a unit of infantry and watch as they are printed an hour later. Im not certain if it will be a good thing for the many figure producers but I can definitely see changes occurring. In the 1930's to possess round figures was looked down upon by true collectors who owned beautiful collections of flats. At the moment plastic is sneered at to a certain extent, but with 3D, that will probably blow some peoples minds. Still it might help our numbers.
