I really want to see this in a game. Also, don't spread the word around about this store. I don't see it staying open for long. Though it is China, so we will see.

It will be hard to close em down. Big hollywood studios with mega money have trouble stopping DVD bootleggers who sell online or takes forever to stop them.

LOL! A squigoth for 55 bucks! That Item was added Wednesday December 15, 1969... LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL....

This serves GW right. If it wasn't for their abusive business practice there wouldn't even be a market for this stuff....

GW is not the only company these people are ripping off. Lot of small time companies here having their products copied as well.

Yeah, but people only seem to take issue with gw. I saw plenty of micro art studio bases on the site, but I wouldn't buy them. They are already decently priced. Most small miniature companies have good prices compared to gw. I have no problem buying bootleg forgeworld or gw stuff.

No sir... I've only added a few extra bodies and an extra landspeeder... Nothing too crazy I think.

Cheap awesome dreadnoughts = win. If that site continues to put the whole death korps of krieg stuff up, that might be too tempting.

I'm pissed. Evil or Very Mad
They returned my money for what I ordered. Anyone else have this problem?

You might, but with the amount of stuff they are doing, obviously many people do have no problem buying other companies stuff that is being offered, and some of the stuff they are selling is very specialist stuff that is expensive from other small artists/studios.

Going to have to see if you can get ahold of them, of course emailing chinese companies especially bootleg ones can take forever. Remember the old bootleg anime dvd days where you sent money to a company and they never answered emails, but months later a box of dvds would arrive.

I don't think they are going anywhere, china is kind of a safe haven for this sort of thievery. If you get a chinese manufacturer to produce your product then you may end up finding out that they are selling it as well. I don't think the chinese will give up their own or interfere with them, at the worst they will have to pay a bribe.

This is resin? Then, from experience, they are usually small firms, and will likely go down the tubes at some point.
