I just found out about the range of 15mm Scifi Miniatures form the company the Scene. It looks as if one of the Big guys out there is going after the little guys again. This big guy has not been mentioned but I am going to jump up and say who I think it is, GW!!! I have seen this in the past as they took on one of my favourite game company DemonBlade games. DB had a rang of mini called the Orgs and well looked like Orcs, but they did not look like GW's space Orcs. Never the less DB lost the case and pulled the minis of the shelves. I was lucky enough to have a ton of them, and picked up more from eBay. Now I think that some of the minis are close to the old school GW space Orks, but they are not close to the new ones. So I don't see how they have the right to go after the Scene. If GW wins this then any one who has some thing that looks some what like some one else's product then they should be sued!!!! Now did GW ever look at the range from AA, as there minis look just like the old Blood axe space Orks. I have seen these minis for years, and have had them in my collection for about 8 yeas, so why can they get away for GW, but the Scene can not. I know of a few other company's out there that have a line close to one of GW's lines, but these company's are big! So why dose GW not go after them?????? Next we will see GW attack any company making a miniature, as they make miniatures. This just makes me sick. Now I have to say the GW's minis are some of the best in the world, but there other products have come up way to short. The rules they have created over the last 10 years have well sucked!!!!!! The have great ideas but pore equitation of them. Not to mention once they put a new product on the market they drop support, quickly there after. I see GW as a money hungry pig!!!
The Scene is not selling a 28mm product, so why should they come under attack?
I have pledged never to buy another GW product, as long as they attack the small company's that are not competing against GW.
