Tyrone Slothrop: I'm just waiting until the quality of 3d printing gets good enough that it's possible to make high-quality minis for rpgs and board games.

/Reaper Miniatures probably isn't looking forward to that, though.

The historical wargaming community has been messing with 3-D printing for about two years now. Because most people still have to go through Shapeways or a similar company, you have to be careful what you put online for people to buy. I'm sure folks have already gotten C&D letters from GW and Lucas.

The day that people can print decent-looking Space Marines in their home is the day Games Workshop gets its just desserts.
