Cool Mini or Not takes over Tabletop Gaming News ... sad times :(
What one says? How can you say that! Cool Mini or not is great!!
No ... no ... it certainly is not. I know I'll be in the small minority of people who are displeased about this news but let me explain my angst.
Cool mini or not is a money making enterprise, they are part and parcel with the Dark Age Miniatures company which is owned by David Doust the guy who ran New Wave minis back in the day. New wave was a terribly run site that basically took peoples money and wouldn't send them the product they'd purchased. It was so bad that they went out of business and they were in a position as a company to dominate online tabletop gaming sales ... if only they'd been run by a person with any business sense. Dark Age has been horribly run for years and yes I know they are trying to re-launch the game entirely right now. We'll see how that goes I wish them luck.
I'll make a prediction that alot more is said about Dark Age and everything else starts to go down hill. I will likely un-bookmark the site and look to other sources for news about minis. Hopefully something similar rises from the inevitable ashes.
