GROUP BUY IS CLOSED.
Shipping from Chessex to myself will be $35.00 total. This will be split by the 40 members in the group buy and will add $0.88 to everyone's total.
Joe at Chessex told me that because the order is so large, the turn around time will be a little longer than their normal 1 week turn around. Also he is checking on his dice stock to make sure he has enough of each dice to fulfill the order. I should hear from him by noon today (01/27/2012).
Once I hear back from Chessex regarding their dice stock I will calculate everyone's costs and PM them their totals along with a detailed list of their order, requesting their Paypal email address (or primary email address if they do not have a Paypal account). PLEASE make sure that you check the details of your order to insure they are correct before PMing me with your Paypal/email address.
So I'm finishing up the minor details on my army (minus 23290520358 hours of painting I still have to do with a newborn on the way in 30 days >_>) and I've put a great deal of detail into the army so far. One detail I've always wanted to do was to have custom Blood Angels dice made.
So i contacted Chessex and they've given me a list of dice that can be used in the custom dice creation. They've also said that up to 5 different dice styles can be used in a group buy to obtain the bulk discounts they offer. So I'm here to offer a group buy on the dice I'm planning to have made (regardless if a group buy is done or not, just figured it'd be great to save money and help others to do the same.)
Group buy for:
- Custom 16mm Blood Angel Dice from Chessex with '6' pip replaced by the winged blood drop.
- You can pick between 4 of the listed (and pictured) dice
- Price per die is $0.37 (we've reached maximum discount!)
- Shipping is $5.35 domestically (within continental US) and $17 internationally (UK, AUS, CAN, GERM, DEN). Additional shipping charge (~$1.00) will be added to total shipping to cover shipping from Chessex to my house.
- Payment made through Paypal.
- Group Buy to close January 27th, 2012. Payment to be made by February 3rd, 2012. Order placed February 4th, 2012.
- For those inquiring about approximate totals I am using the following formula to calculate approximate totals:
((.39*#Dice) + 5.35 + $0.88) *1.03 + 0.30 = $Total
((.39*#Dice) + 17 + $0.88) *1.04 + 0.40 = $Total
The dice are 16mm sized dice (standard size, bigger than the 12mm sized used by GW)
The dice will have their '6' pip replaced with the winged blood drop:
Signature Velvet Black/red
Signature Velvet Red/white
Signature Gemini Black-Red/gold
Signature Gemini Black-White/Red
This is an example of the dice I'll be ordering (these were ordered from Chessex by the guy that runs the Knights of Baal blog.) Chessex no longer offers the Opaque Red/white for custom dice work):
10-25 dice: $1.00 per die
26-99 dice: $0.75 per die
100-199 dice: $0.60 per die
200-499 dice: $0.50 per die
500-999 dice: $0.42 per die
1000+ dice: $0.39 per die
As of January 23rd, 2012 the United States Postal Service raised shipping rates. Domestic shipping was raised a mere $0.20 for small flat rate box shipping. International shipping was raised another $3.00 for small flat rate box shipping. I was unaware of the forthcoming change in postage and apologize for the inconvenience this will cause for international orders.
Shipping will be calculated once the group purchase is finished.
Shipping from Chessex to my house (where the orders will be broke down and separated and then reshipped to individual members) will be $35 and split by the 40 members in the group buy which comes to $0.88 each.
Shipping domestically will be $5.35 for USPS Priority Mail small flat rate box shipping.
Shipping internationally will be $17.00 for USPS Priority Mail small flat rate box shipping.
Money will be collected through Paypal once the final price is settled upon (dependent, of course, on the amount that is ordered.) and will accrue a paypal fee of 3% (4% for international transactions) of the total sent plus an additional one time fee of $0.30 transaction Paypal fee. All Paypal fees will be the responsibility of the sender to add that amount to their total. (so if you order $30 you'd add $1.20 to cover Paypal fees. Addresses and names (Forum and real name) for each order would be left in the Paypal notes.)
The time frame for this order will be 2 weeks. I plan to close this group buy on January 27th. All totals will be calculated and PMed to each member involved in the group buy. The deadline for money to be collected will be February 3rd 2012. After that point, the full amount will be paid to Chessex and the order placed. Turn around time from Chessex is approximately 3 weeks.
So that's that. I'm throwing this offer out on my own in order to help others interested in getting some custom dice of their own, but looking to get them cheaper. As I said before, I'll be ordering mine here shortly with or without the discount.
If you're interested (please be serious about the interest. If you're unsure about whether you want to buy these dice or not, then best to wait before posting that you're certain. Feel free to post if you're uncertain though.):
- Include the type/color dice that you'd like (you can pick from as many of the four listed above, any combo, etc.)
- The amount you'd like (we'd like to keep minimum dice orders to 10)
- Where the order will be shipped if international
- Your Paypal/Primary email address(if you don't have a Paypal account)
