From the Ministry of Pretty Charts (Minis)

We have our miniature game sales for the last 12 months, similar to what I posted last year around this time. I would postulate that the "flight to quality" concept was in effect in 2009, as customers focused on established games at the expense of other, lesser known (riskier) games. Market share of the leaders grew. There's really only a few companies of note: Games Workshop, Privateer Press, Battlefront and whatever skirmish game is popular at the moment (Malifaux). I think this will start loosening up this year and can't wait to see some of the new innovators.
