Simon Tan posted this over on tank-net. Looks like an aerial view of a miniatures game! :)

Does anyone know if the Flag Dude aka Rick is still in business or is he on vacation or something? Tried calling him and his message machine is full and there's been no reply to my emails.

Looks like the TMP bug has struck again.

If I'm not mistaken, he was at Fall-In.

I saw him at Historicon so I know he's alive. Just can't get in touch to place an order.

He can be evelusive. Still in business though .

I've posted previously about his lack of business sense.
Four e-mails, one phone call, no answer for a 20+ flag order.
I went with GMB.

Who is GMB?

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately they don't carry what I'm looking to buy.

Always had great communications and service with The Flag Dude. Love his textured flags. Highly recommended products!

You can almost set your watch to these missing Flag Dude posts.

I messaged him a couple months ago about placing an order. Never got a response.

Place your orders two weeks before a convention he is attending. Then one week before. He responds about 50% of the time because he is making up stock to take to the convention.

I spoke to him at Cold wars – he is up and running again -he had a series of misfortunes and moved as well .

I think its bad business form to NOT inform the people you are selling too that you will down for awhile, for whatever reasons. He has a website and I'm going to guess capable of putting a note on it to say that he will not be taking orders. He's only hurting himself.

Bonjour Chaps,

Rick IS elusive but the fact that we still want his flags speaks volumes!!!

I buy GMB too but I still like Rick's flags so will attempt to get in touch before Salute.

I tried again,still no response. He's the only one who makes the AWI flags I need. This is very frustrating!
