I saw this over on Faeit212's blog and was shocked. So I came over here to speak my piece in defence of Navin and the company.
These guys are not scammers at all, I've had tons of work done from them over several years. They basically painted my entire Skaven army between about three different orders, as well as a small Chaos Daemons force and a Necromunda team. They aren't the quickest it's true, but from my experience no painting services are quick, it always takes months to get your stuff done. However the majority of work they've done for me has been good quality, and I've always been happy with them. I generally use them if I want an army painted, and another more expensive service if I just want a single model or unit painted.
Navin Weeraratne always used to handle customer service personally and I have a load of old emails from him, plus I added him onto facebook because we used to have a laugh about geeky stuff. It's completely unfair that they're being slandered like this. I think the quoted message in the OP says it all really, this 'journalist' doesn't turn up when Googled, this is just an attempt to screw over the company, which is just appalling.
