Fascinating 3D Printing News

So, it looks like Hero Forge are going to be starting something pretty special soon. They have been teasing the development of their platform with all new tweaks but the really fascinating part is that it is going to include a Full Colour option. 

Are they going to be able to "change the game"? Well, Warren and the guys share their thoughts on the matter and talk about what the prospects are for this kind of technology. We also make sure to note existing options like that from Shapeways and soon from Secret Weapon Miniatures.


As well as that pretty exciting news from Hero Forge we also have more for you...

  • Marvel United - CMON and Spin Master Games are joining forces for a more kid-friendly looking board game
  • Return To Dark Tower - Restoriation Games look to be doing it again with their take on a classic

So, what from the news caught your eye this week?


Just one Kickstarter project for you this week as no doubt we'll have many more to dive into in the coming days. Here we have SanctorVM which is a new survival horror adventure/roleplaying game from the Antoni Bonet Balanzat featuring a diverse and interesting cast of characters, interesting mechanical choices and plenty of wonderful artwork and music to play along to.

So, if you're fascinated by the dark and the brooding this might be for you!

Have a great weekend of gaming!

Come and take a peek at some of the awesome files that Ben has been showing off and the incredible detail he has got from the set.
