Fantasy Flight Games announced today that it will no longer be distributing new releases for Rackham’s AT-43 and Confrontation collectible miniatures games.  FFG will however continue to supply backstock on those lines while supplies last, but FFG will not be supplying any product from Wave 8 that was originally supposed to ship to retailers in late September.  FFG is encouraging retailers and distributors interested in obtaining the new Rackham releases to contact Rackham directly.


FFG took over distribution of Rackham’s CMGs in August of 2007 (see “Confrontation Goes Pre-Painted”).  Two years earlier ACD had been named the French company’s U.S. distributor (see “ACD Named Master Distributor for Rackham).


In a statement announcing the end of its distribution arrangement FFG expressed its appreciation to the retailers and distributors who carried the Rackham lines under FFG’s tenure and “to Rackham for allowing us to distribute its beautiful range of games and miniatures in the past months.”


ICv2 contacted Fantasy Flight Games concerning the reasons behind FFG's decision to stop distributing Rackham's games, but a spokesperson for FFG declined to comment on the situation or respond directly to the questions from ICv2 other than to say, "We wish Rackham the very best."
