Potential for questions or topics to be covered;

1) 3D printing - it is presently still a bit of an exotic area of figure / terrain production, but seemingly becoming increasingly integrated with the hobby scene. How does Leon see this impacting on businesses such as his in the next 5 - 10 years. As a point of interest, I have no interest or intention in owning the technology.

2) Is the likes of Victrix and Warlord Games entering the smaller scales market in plastic having an impact on the traditional small figure manufacturers. I note that Kallistra seemed to do quite well from selling ACW support material that was seen as being cheaper alternative to Warlord Games non-plastic offerings.

3) Has shipping / customs / Brexit changes made it harder to sell overseas directly to customers. I know from a boardgamers perspective that in the UK, buying directly from America has become expensive, thank goodness for UK distributors.

just some thoughts, cheers Norm.

Thirded.
Although if there is a next time I'll have to remember to switch the not used very often laptop on the day before to get all those d..d updates out of the way. Hope my lurking on a listening only desktop PC wasn't too weird for everyone.

I was delighted you could joins us, even if only as a disembodied thumbs-up.

Glad you were able to join us. 

You will have  gathered I am as much of a chatterbox in real life as I am on here :)
