Indeed, they recently posted to their Facebook page that there is an announcement coming very soon about the reopening. From things they've said it should be ready in the next month or two. They are the only company that has resolved issues on a level comparable to DF for me. No other company I have done business with has offered that level of service to me, and I have done business with many companies in minis and RPGs. Both companies resolve everything to my satisfaction and even go beyond what I've asked for to handle things for me. I realize that from a business perspective that is dicey as it can be expensive and difficult to consistently do. As a customer though, it has engendered a level of loyalty and appreciation few other companies can enjoy.kitenerd wrote:I believe that Renaissance Miniatures has there store offline until they fulfill a KS that they are behind on... don't quote me on that but that is the sense i got from their last missive. I like the honor of fulfilling a commitment before taking on additional obligations. That may not make the best business sense $$$ wise but it is a classy move.
More on topic, I would still like to see primarily expansions of existing lines and a smaller new addition. I like the idea of outdoor accessories and perhaps a few simple garden, lawn, dirt, and mud tiles. It would be very cool if the tiles could have magnetic accessories attached on the surface to add in shrubs, small tombs/tombstones, flowering plants hedges, etc. This way the tiles are very modular, a few accessories can be made by DF to start, and anything we want that doesn't have enough demand for DF to produce can easily be produced by third parties and crafty folks. Those tiles can be integrated with city and castles to make garden plots, muddy yards (like at the inn or stable) nice lawns for nobles, and even raised gardens. They can also be used independently to construct small encounter scenes outside those environments, or to make a green space inside a cavern (there are examples in nature where a roof vent lets in sun, seeds, and rain).
