Simply miniatures is the company that Maelstrom run up thier debt with.

Mierce minis is still owned / directed by Robert Lane (the same guy that owned Maelstrom Games), Mierce confirmed that in the comments on the KS.

The controvery around Mierce is that according to various company reporting sites they had £0 capital, yet “purchased” the Bane stuff from Maelstrom games and is producing more (with no money), Mierce wont comment on this on thoer KS.

The risk in this KS is that the liquidator could recoup some of Maelstrom game’s debt by recalling those miniatures from Mierce if thet believe that Mierce didn’t purchase them ligitamately, therefore meaning that Mierce wont have any rights to the models to produce them at all.

Also in the days before Maelstrom games closing it’s doors, they “sold” seemingly miniatures that they had absolutely no chance of actually having in stock because they had been cut off by thier suppliers, therefore not actually sending the models out to the customers, leaving a LOT of people out of pocket.

I love this show. You guys sound like you are actually excited about what you are doing versus other podcasts where people sound awkward or bored. Good job; love it.
