I like tablets (wife has one) but i like to focus on the tabletop when I play miniatures, not splitting my attention.

POLL DESCRIPTION

What's in the "early adopters" stage of the bell curve?

Alright, so obviously this is a subject that calls for a lot of guesswork and this thread (if it takes off) may appear comically off-target in retrospect, but as long as we're just doing it for good cheer, let's.

If we take "What's hot?" to be about what's at/near the peak of the bell curve, and "What's not hot?" to be about what's at/past the end of it, that leaves the question of what's at the beginning of the bell curve the "early adopters" stage, if you will.

So, what looks poised to become a future trend, major phenomenon or "old familiar" in miniature wargaming? Scales, genres/periods/settings, rules design concepts, technologies, community practices, specific products or companies, anything.

I nominate:

  • 3mm (1:600) as a land wargaming scale (as beginning to be asserted by Oddzial Osmy and Magister Militum)
  • 3d-printing terrain at home with low-end 3d printers (not so much figures and vehicles yet, just terrain)
