Hey everyone,

Just a short basic article from about 3D Printing and Minature Wargaming. ... re-gaming/

I thought some of you might find it interesting to read.

It has a picture of Chainmail from Guidon Games too :)

Best regards,

"New avenues for wargaming opened up in the 1970s, when Gary Gygax created Chainmail, a medieval war game which included a fantasy supplement with rules governing magic spells and fantastical creatures." (from the article cited)

Amusing, since the early Chainmail versions said "by Jeff Perren & Gary Gygax".
But I talked with Jeff about this before he passed away.
He felt fairly compensated, overall, and felt Gary did add a lot to his base work.

Consider that you can buy a 3D printer for $500 - $2000, it's only a matter of time when I can make my own mini's for whatever module I run that night!  :D

RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord
