Kickstarter watch - the revolution is coming!

The folks from Proxy Army Games have announced a very interesting and thought provoking Kickstarter.

To quote:
Proxy War is bringing tabletop gaming into the 21st century, letting gamers create fully custom models online, and then get them 3D printed in ultra-fine detail. Log onto a database of parts, select chassis, torsos, limbs, weapons, mutations, powers, and technology, and clip them together into a unit that is uniquely yours. You can also partner with our design staff to create a custom unit entirely from scratch. Our service lets you make anything you can imagine—from RPG characters to whole wargame armies.
They're talking about the design size/scale in very much 40K terms, but they do seem to be prepared to cope with anything from historicals to scifi/fantasy. Intriguing. I'm not as yet 100% if they haven't set their target a bit high, and some of the language in the promo video seems a bit optimistic, but as a concept it could be a real game-changer.

  1. At the very least, it's interesting to think about. How about buildings, selected from Google Earth, or historic or future?

  2. Sounds great to me and for someone bereft of any imagination the menu approach is ideal. Like Mike's idea for buildings even more.
