New 3D sculpting technology, low costs, less figures, no more historics!

Hi folks,

after reading at first the rumors and then the facts about Zvezda's 2012 product list, I checked my posts from last year and recognized this post:

With the infantry figures for their new boardgame "The great Patriotic War 1941" they made the first steps, into the new direction, producing figures with a new technology, without any sculptor:

Does it mean, that the days of sculptor-designed figures are over?

No more natural and aesthetic looking historic figures?

Producing with lower costing, more products and faster, hoping more profit!?

Hopefully, so-called "special sets" in periodic intervals, created through sculptors!

Hope dies last!

  1. Well... I didn't like 3D sculpt figures!
    When we see the human spirit and imagination of many great sculptors, I think that it's a shame to do what is doing Zvezda !!
    We all know that those awful figures are for Wargamers but I'm sure that many of them never buy those (expensive!) mini-sets: they have better choices from many "traditional" manufacturers....
    Shame on you ZVEZDA !
