Just as the title says, who was it again? They were about center of the hall.
Can't recall their name and I don't have a pdf of the Dealer Hall map.
Unless someone has a pic or pdf of the hall?

Saw some of their 28mm ships, I was interested until I looked closer and noted that the pieces looked absolutely awful up close. I'm sure they would improve with some painting, but "out of the box" the (not sure what you call a piece made in a 3D printer) "casts" were just awful. Almost no detail and very crude at that. Maybe some of the 3D printing stuff is getting really good, but what I saw told me it wasn't with them.

I got one of their charms for the fiance. She rather liked it and the quality was very, very nice.
