Sometimes it feels to me that as fans of the miniatures industry we forget to raise our heads to see what technology is just round the corner and just how powerful it actually is. Prepare to lift your head…
While this demonstration is focused on a non miniatures product, the purpose of this little distraction is to nudge you into realising that technologies and processes that have these abilities already exist.
And ooh boy do they cost (remember that the next time you grumble about the price of your piece of GW plastic), but like all technologies the price reduces and penetration into industry increases.
Whether you like it or not, the future of our hobby/industry will depend on (or dictated by) these technologies, and both the quality and complexity of whats possible will rise.
Cling to the past at your peril? Or protect it at any cost?
What do you think?
