So, what is this new technology?

How Does It Work?

The UniCast technology is a unique combination of plastic injection manufacturing process combined with traditional utherene resin casting.

PVC Vs UniCast

The idea is that they are able to create resin quality miniatures while reducing the time it takes from around two or three months all the way down to around two to three weeks.

Additionally they have mentioned that this new technology allows them to create miniatures like the one above in any shape and with no limitations or undercuts.

We did wonder just exactly how they were managing to make these miniatures!

What Does This Mean?

This means that we could see a lot of board game companies changing the way in which they produce miniatures. While PVC miniatures are all well and good having these higher quality products included within your board game might be the new step forward.

The lower costs and other added benefits to this make it a very attractive proposition. The one thing that stopped people looking towards resin for their board games was that the models would take assembly but with this technology they just come out in one piece.

What do you think about the way UniCast could change the industry?
