Problem with Newline Minatures

Each time I've made an order with Newline they get slower and slower. But at least they would respond to emails. Now that has stopped as well. Anybody have a phone number for them? E-mails certainly don't work.

Re: Problem with Newline Minatures

I had trouble with them last year and had to get my money back via PayPal since they never answered my emails. I've pretty much had decided they're a dead company right now that hasn't taken the website down. And my order wasn't just an item or two, but a couple hundred bucks.

Wow! Did they announce they were closing? They should shut down their site and Paypal account if that’s still set up to accept payments!

No word, web is still working, you can place an order but you never will get the items but a Paypal refund.
No idea why Graham has no closed the shop.

It's such a shame Newline has closed down, they had such great products. Battle gear are now producing a small range of top quality boots.

True that, there's history between the two, wouldn't be surprise to see Battlegear expand their boot line

Did Newline and Battlegear work together?

Anyway, I think Graham should just do the responsible thing and either take down the website, disable the ability to purchase, or if Graham is in hiatus for whatever reason (esp. with COVID-19 affecting practically the entire supply chain of our hobby), at least put up notice of that on his site.

Otherwise, I'm inclined to believe that by remaining passive, he welcomes unsuspecting people to send in their PayPal payments and if a portion of those people do not successfully effect a refund, he welcomes that as well.

If it's just a one-man operation, maybe something incapacitated Graham from acting or even responding to emails? Hoping that is not the case.

Re: Problem with Newline Minatures

I don't think Newline have been trading for at least three years, unless anyone has has an order in that time. I might be wrong.

Just recently I purchased some leather pistol holsters, Y-Straps, and rank pips, all great stuff, been ordering Augies goods since before Battlegear. always quality goods, the new boot line looks promising, would love to see them expand, or even better yet, have NewLine start producing again, Panzerwerks as well for that matter
