Indeed. In my line of business we've seen suppliers bought out for years until there was only one supplier left. Fortunately another one from Ireland started up in the UK and has since grown, but they both feel they can charge almost what they like to smaller customers. The only customers with enough financial clout to talk their price down are the really large ones they can't do without. Everyone else either has to grit their teeth and pay up, or look elsewhere.

Prompted by the Warstore's closing news, I said this industry is a step further from having an Amazon-style vendor at its heart. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being "It will murder and bury historical wargaming forever" and 10 being, "It will put wargaming into everyone's home and we'll see phenomenal growth and vibrancy for years to come," how desirable is it for a large online retailer, with a huge definitive selection, low prices, stellar communications, and lightning-fast service?
