Tabletop Game Terrain new release

Tabletop Game Terrain have released their City of Ruins terrain sets.

City of Ruins

From their announcement:

Tabletop Game Terrain has released the new TGT: City of Ruins sets. These sets are designed to be as aesthetically pleasing as they are playable. Each building comes with a base that is either 6.25”x6.25”, 11.5”x6” and 12”x12” depending on the size of the kit. All pieces are modular allowing almost limitless combinations with the other pieces in the collection. Our entire collection of buildings amounts to almost 3.5 sq ft of terrain and can be purchased together in the City of Ruins Battle Board set!

This is the premiere line from TGT with an expected release of the TGT: City of Ruins road set and expansion set on April 15th and then the release of another range in March!

All TGT sets are designed and priced with gamers in mind. Simply put, we wanted to begin producing lines that are VERY affordable, playable, and awesome looking on the table. With TGT, gamers won’t have to buy expensive building after expensive building to make a great game board. Make sure to check out the gallery on our website to see the terrain in action.

Wargames Factory responds

The new majority shareholder of Wargames Factory has sent a letter responding to public comments made about his acquisition of the company.

Public Statement from Wai Kee Hui regarding Wargames Factory

It has been a little more than 2 months since Tony Reidy posted his “Open Letter to Wai Kee Hui” on The Miniatures Page website. I was aware of this “letter” at the time of posting and although I was annoyed at his unprofessional tone and angered at what amounted to many outright lies, I decided that my best course of action was to stay out of online politics and instead focus on trying to get the company I had recently become majority shareholder of into functional order.

The past 2 months have been extremely busy with trying to figure out what orders had been placed and paid for before I took over, inventorying product that was still in stock at Triangle and setting up a new order platform and shipping facility. These goals have now been accomplished, with all outstanding orders shipped and our web store reopened.

Throughout this process I was cognizant of the defamation of character my associates and I were receiving in Cyberspace at the hands of Tony Reidy and Howard Whitehouse. Even though at many times the temptation was strong for me to jump in and tell my side of the story, I refrained from doing so while we were struggling to put Wargames Factory back on track. Now that we are on the road to recovery, and in lieu of increasingly slanderous postings being made by Tony and Howard, I feel the time has come for me to set the record straight.
