barca Posted December 5, 2015 Report Share Posted December 5, 2015 Information has been coming in drips and drabs on GG's support or not of Battlefront products. "Prodded by a desire for truth and understanding, the smallest of the mice clan crawled up the mountain. As close to the summit as she dared venture, she stopped and tentatively squeaked a question to the wizard. To her surprise, a wise and clear answer issued forth from the summit..." Here is the position of GG on their Battlefront merchandise, as of 12/4/2015: "...For now my plan has been to cancel all pre-orders and liquidate what is on the shelf. We'll still carry terrain, books, and GF9 products, and be more than happy to special order stuff in for customers. And still want Team Yankee. But won't re-order it when it sells unless a customer specifically asks. ...What everyone needs to know is that we are NOT dropping support of the game. We endorse and encourage all games at Guardian. (FoW is one of my personal faves). What we are doing is planning on using the space soon to be freed up to bring in a product line that will be better for business. Better for business means gaining new customers, having better margins, and better turns on inventory. Doing that is what will keep us around and therefore allow us to still dabble in games like Flames of War. ...Believe in us and our ability to order items in for you as requested. Trust that we'll have starter packs on hand and rulebooks as long as we can have access. ...All these thoughts and decisions are not final. As a person and business owner I am very open-minded and very optimistic. I hope one day Flames of War will be the rock star it once was and can justify 5% of my shelf space. But for the meantime, we have to put more focus into other games and game lines...." This turn of events does not change any of the events in the pipeline for the Rose City Dukes and Duchesses group. If anyone has any follow-up questions, they should contact the staff at GG. If anyone would like to discuss this with me, ping my Ordo account, or meet me in person on Thursday evenings at GG. I can be recognized as the owner of olive green Flames of War Battlefoam kit bags and Brash Canadians or Grim Russians on the tabletop. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
