Their web site has numerous broken links, so I looked for a contact on their web site: none available. I contacted RPGNow.com staff, who sell their products, to see if they could contact Microtactix: they tried, but their e-mails bounced. Anybody know what has happened to them? Cheers!

They've said, "new website coming soon" for at least five years now, so I would guess they are out of business. At least their stuff is still available at rpgnow.com and other places likes that.

The name on my 15mm Normandy stuff from them is Gary M. Williams, if that helps any.

EDIT: Looking for him here on TMP, it says his last visit under the Micro Tactix name was in July 2006.

Maybe contact rpg.now (and the related sites). If they are still selling their products the royalties have to be going somewhere.

tberry,
I thought about that after you posted, and went to the rpgnow.com website. OneBookShelf (the owners of RPGNow, drivethruRPG, Wargame Vault, etc.) say that they, "make your royalties available to you at any time, via PayPal or by monthly check." Maybe the MicroTactix royalties are still piling up?

Also, based on this thread over at forum.rpg.net ( link ) it would appear that the owner as of 2009 was Guy McLimore. Maybe those royalties aren't piling up after all.
