It's been a slow week as far as new releases and actual miniature products. I try not to duplicate what is already out there so if you haven't done so be sure to check out The Miniatures Page for some of the new stuff they are featuring.
Instead of copying what you can find elsewhere I've decided to devote this space to News and Rumors in the industry!
* Rumors persist that The Foundry may be closing by the end of this year. This is a "new" old rumor but always taken seriously when it is resurrected.
* This isn't really news or a rumor but I am starting to wonder what is taking so long with the Heroclix Indy range. This range was announced over a year ago and I still haven't seen one promo picture or figure on this range. For those who don't know this was supposed to be a Heroclix set of heroes from Independant comics like "Image". I was especially interested in potential "Spawn" figures.
* This has been posted previously on this page but is worth repeating that Games Workshop apparently intends to stop allowing its products to be sold "online". The target date for this I keep hearing is July 15th or so! Order up!
* I keep hearing rumors that Em-4 has the rights to Nick Lund's old Fantasy Warriors miniature range. I can't find anything official on this and definitely haven't seen any actual miniatures. For those who have never seen this range I recommend you check out the gallery at the "old" Nemo Miniatures website. There are a lot of good pictures of the dwarves and barbarians in their catalog there.
* Talisman is back out. This is also not a rumor but apparently it will only be available from Games Workshop and for a U.S. price of $75.00!! Ever heard of ebay?!
