Defiance to me looks like the robbed the general premise of the Greatcoats but hey, what do I know. Some serious blending of both ranges is going to get death if they manage to release their German line soon. No rush for the heavy weapons as I already have a vendor for that :P
Wargames Factory's Greatcoats and Alien Worlds were ideas from the founder and original owner, who now founded and owns Defiance Games.
Maybe the two companies should get together and merge the Alien Suns and Alien War ranges. Would be cool, and WF could do the manufacturing.
That ain't going to happen, and understandably so. Too much bad blood between the current owners of WF, and the original owners who now own DG.
Its all about profit at the end of the day I don`t see any problems in the collaboration. if it speeds up WF output must be a good thing surely? I realise there is a lot more than OK then lets make it, who owns what etc.
In this case, there's alot more than just profits and logistics impeading a collaboration of any kind.
