Bit of a delicate subject this one. I like Mierce, I really do. I think their sculpts are good, and what contact I've had with them has been commendably polite and professional, far more so than many other miniature companies I've had to contact for one reason or another.
But... (yeah, y'all saw that coming.)
I was one of the many folks who got burned by the fall of Maelstrom games at the end of October. However, the only models I was owed were all Mierce miniatures. The statement on the Maelstrom site said Mierce would honour all owed minis, so I figured it was worth a shotty and mailed them on their webform. I got a very polite, apologetic response, and was given another address to contact, which dealt with transfers of Maelstrom orders to Mierce minis. I duly did so, and again, received a nice polite response saying my order would be transferred over, no problem. This was in late November.
Since then, nothing. No goods. No response to any emails I've sent (all of which, so far, have been sent to the transfers address I was given.) Nuffink.
What I'm wondering is: Has anybody out there actually received any Mierce minis that they had ordered through the Maelstrom sale, and which were subsequently passed to Mierce? I want this company to be good. I want it to do well. But, at the moment all I'm seeing is more Maelstrom-a-like behaviour. Promise, promise, promise, but no delivery.
Will somebody please tell me I'm being overly cynical here? I'd really like to be, just this once. *sigh*
