Maelstrom, Battlefront and a nice, big discount.

There's been lots of talk on the net about Battlefront dropping Maelstrom Games as a stockist for their products.  I won't add to it much, but only say it's very . . . well . . . inconvenient.

I buy quite a lot from Maelstrom (usually when they have a big discount offer on) and it'll be a fair hassle having to find somewhere else to get my Flames of War gear.

However, every cloud as they say:

A few Fallschirmjager, some SS, pioneers and a couple British blisters all at a lovely 25% off.  That should keep me going for a while.

I'm not sure if you're allowed to complain when you get a quarter off the price, but some of these blisters must be the dregs of the warehouse.  Three blisters have been opened and sealed again with staples and each has at least one part missing.  Not a massive problem, Battlefront usually is pretty happy to sort out missing components.  

I also ordered four blisters that are now mysteriously out of stock - they had plenty left when I ordered them two and a half weeks ago.

So not sure how to feel - eighteen days for delivery, damaged/dodgy stock and items all of a sudden unavailable - just as well they were all reduced!!!
