I see that the domain registration for the website of Strategia e Tattica has expired.

Is this Italian manufacturer of 25mm Colonials (Italian Colonial) and 28mm WWII still around?

A friend of mine, the owner of Camelot Games in Italy, recently told me that Strategia e Tattica closed last spring/summer. Their italan colonials were quite good.

As I said in another post, Strategia & Tattica went bankrupt during the summer. Some people is thinking to open a new shop but I don't know if they own their old ranges because all is in the hands of creditors.

You see folks, the Internet is great but you HAVE to support your local hobby store. And guess what, they DO have to make a higher profit margin. Saving money at the expense of not having a local hobby store doesn't make sense. Having said this, the most viable gaming stores diversify in other areas.

Great Hall Games has other games that aren't miniature based and he does a good amount of online business as well. My other two gaming stores either have comics or trains/modeling to help out too.

Wasn't the Emperor's Headquarters a gaming store only as well? I have only seen Games Workshop stores survive and they are vertically integrated and they make sure to be in higher population/income areas. They aren't in San Antonio or Austin, I believe….

Emperor's Headquarters was a gaming store only. In fact all they carried were Historical Minatures. I miss that store, but my wallet dosen't.

Strategia e Tattica had awful high prices for anything except their own ranges and they were also very involved in mail ordering and had to deal with the italian mail that was just making even more unatractive buying from them.

anyway I bought some thing from them at con, but I had my reasons to not buying from them too often. They were nice chaps but out of my money allowance. I do not have to support anbyone if I do not want to do it. I prefer to support the producers of Wargames and miniatures or the hobby stores that treat me well. Also saving money at the espense of thelocal hobby stoe makes sense if you do not have so much money. I know local hobby stores are important, but the point is that support is a two edged sword.

Dear all, Strategia e Tattica is back in town, new name (Strategia Nova), new website (http://www.strategianova.it) but same old range of miniature (http://www.strategianova.it/soldatini-e-resine).
I think that someone out there could be very happy.
