It seems from Facebook they are pondering using 3D printing to manufacture the products and running a kickstarter. It does seem we are still no way near seeing a 2nd edition yet which is disappointing but on the other hand I don't have any hobby space and probably won't till next year.

3d printing might be viable for something big like the bodies of the landships, MKIV, and MKV tanks because you can have most of it hollow with internal structural reinforcement and you theoretically wont need to make that many, but for just about everything else it likely wouldnt be worth the loss of quality. the few 3d printing options that are of high enough quality that i am aware of are either too slow or expensive for mass production.
I am a big fan of cast figures, probably dates to back when I started collecting figures in the 70's. I've had plastic figures also, got my first Airfix 20mm figs for usage in Napoleonic and ACW. When I got my first resin figures back in the early 2000's, I was not impressed about how fragile that material is.
I can understand running a business and would like to have AQMF survive into the future.
So personally, I favor cast figures, metal or plastic. I do not support any resin crapola.
