Word! I ventured on their FB page...people are ready for the witch hunt!
I'm personnaly gonna keep using the stuff as long as it's easy to get in NA or Mig and Ian Hamilton come out with their own line

Very interesting developments!  It remains to be seen, though, how many companies Mig can start as this is the second company he has parted ways with isn't it? Wasn't the first MIG brand products? Third times the charm?

Never used AK stuff because they charge too much for shipping.

AK Interactive sells a line of weathering products such as washes, pigments, paints etc etc used mainly by military modellers but also favoured by some auto modellers who like to do tired, rusted, weathered vehicles.
