Guess who’s the 800 pound gorilla in the game store now? GW has been dethroned at #1 according to ICv2’s news Top 5 sales data!

“This chart of the ICv2 “Top 5 Non-Collectible Miniature Games” shows U.S. sales for the Fall season, September through December.  To develop this chart, we interviewed distributors, manufacturers, and retailers, then aggregated the information into a single ranking.”

1: Star Wars X-Wing
Fantasy Flight Games

2: Warhammer
Games Workshop

3: Star Wars Armada
Fantasy Flight Games

4: Warmachine
Privateer Press

5: Star Trek Attack Wing

Okay so one caveat: we’re not 100% sure on if Warhammer means Warhammer 40,000, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar or all GW in general. Same with Warmachine for Privateer Press, but there looks to be no stomping FFG as they have TWO games now in the Top 5 and lease the rights to the rules for the #5 game Star Trek Attack Wing.
