There is a lot to read here so please make sure you take your time and read thoroughly.
Well we asked you guys what you wanted, swag wise, this year and we got a little bit of everything. While we didn't feel we could do the tape measure to the quality level we wanted we can do Dice, Patches and the B&C Army bag.
In the posts below you will find all the details you need to order and pay for the items you want. If you have questions feel free to ask but in the mean time a quick F.A.Q.:
What forms of payment do you take?
We use paypal. It is the easiest way for everyone involved. In the event you live in a country that doesn't allow paypal or you just absolutely refuse to use it we can possibly make separate arrangements through Western Union or other means but please don't ask to send cash or checks.
Do I have to order everything?
No. If you want only a patch or only a bag or dice and a bag and so on that is fine.
Is there anyway the prices can come down?
Unfortunately no, though the dice may be a different matter. For those who have been around here awhile you know that anything we offer to the members is a high quality item. The bags and patches have set costs. The dice cost changes with quantity ordered. However last year we failed to hit the target goal so the dice wound up being $3.00 each (7 custom faces factors into that as well). The next price break on the dice after 3k quantity is 5k, 8k and 10k. It would be very cool to reach those #s but I'm not entirely sure we can.
Can I get custom colors or logos (such as Chapter logos) on my dice or army bag?
The colors we offer are what we can do for this years order. The army bags have multiple colors this year. Offering any color possible on dice would require 100 dice per color combo at a minimum. While we may offer this in another year we felt this year was not the time to do so. In regards to Chapter logos, they definitely cannot be done for the army bags. If we only have 2-3 people at a time getting (as an example) an Ultramarine bag it greatly increases the bag cost due to the digitizing fee for any artwork that gets embroidered. It is something we might consider for dice down the road but not at this time.
Do the items cost include taxes?
Yes. 6.5% is the sales tax and so that has been added to each item. There is no tax on shipping. Please note that this does not include any customs fee that those living outside the USA may have to pay.
Once everything is ready to ship how long will it take me to receive my items?
If you are in the USA you should get everything within 5 days of it shipping out. If you are outside the USA we simply can't say. Priority mail is typically 5-7 days while airmail is typically 7-10 days. However that is only the time it takes to reach customs in most countries. Once it hits customs it is passed off to the local mail carrier (royal mail for example) and we have no way to say when you get it after that. Canada and Sweden are both countries where the customs official seems to hold on to stuff for a long time. Italy won't even accept priority mail from the USA.
When do you expect to be shipping items?
Our goal right now is to place the orders on Sept. 1 for all items. If things go to plan this should be mean we have everything by Oct. 1 and it should ship within a week or two of that. If the weather is nice and customs official are even nicer, then everyone should have their items no later than Nov. 1.
Does the B&C benefit from selling these items?
We do, but only in a small way monetarily. We like giving back to the community so any extra left over after the orders are placed and everything is mailed out goes right back into maintaining the server and paying the monthly hosting fees for the server. Naturally straight donations always help things out but we like to see folks get something they can use in their gaming efforts as well.
Will you be using the power mackarel on people this year?
