UPDATE 07/06/2012:

GROUP BUY CLOSED

The group buy is now closed. Everyone in the buy has been PMed asking to confirm their order and their totals as well as send me their mailing info and Paypal address. The sooner I receive this info from everyone, the sooner I can submit the order with Chessex. The order will be placed on July 13th and any unpaid orders will be cancelled and removed from the group buy at 11:59pm (EST) July 12th. The last group buy had a 6 week turn around from Chessex to me and about 10 days from me to everyone else in the world (3 days for those in the U.S.)

I want to thank everyone for the amazing support for this second group buy, especially with the last second logo change. To say I'm shocked with having another dice order reach over 2000 dice would be an understatement. It's fantastic to be able to support a locally based business here in the U.S. with a slumped economy as it's been. Thanks everyone!

By the way - for those interested in CUSTOM BLOOD ANGEL DICE BAGS - I'm in talks with a local embroidery company to get them made for around $10-15. If interested: CLICKY




With the advent of 6th edition making DC entirely GROSS I decided to honour that with custom dice and a whole new branch to my BA army.

I ran a group buy prior to this with great success (and TONS of work haha) and I think this time around it will be a lot easier on me as I'm not new to it anymore. We'll be using the same colored dice combinations from the previous group buy for both sets of dice (makes it simpler.)


Summary:

Group buy for:

  • Custom 16mm Blood Angel "Winged Blood Drop" and 'X'-ed Skull Dice from Chessex with '6' pip replaced by the winged blood drop or 'X'-ed skull.
  • You can pick between 4 of the listed (and pictured) dice (with each symbol)
  • Price per die is $0.39/DC die and $0.42/BA die (currently. As we get more dice ordered, the price goes down significantly)
  • Shipping is $5.35 domestically (within continental US and all APO orders) and $17 internationally (UK, AUS, CAN, GERM, DEN etc). Additional shipping charge (~$1.00. TBD once we submit order.) will be added to total shipping to cover shipping from Chessex to my house.
  • Payment made through Paypal.
  • Group Buy to close July 6th, 2012. Payment to be made by July 12th, 2012. Order placed July 13th, 2012.
  • For those inquiring about approximate totals I am using the following formula to calculate approximate totals (bear in mind that you only pay for shipping ONCE):
    DOMESTIC
    ((.42*#BADice) + 5.35 + $0.88) *1.04 + 0.30 = $Total
    ((.39*#DCDice) + 5.35 + $0.88) *1.04 + 0.30 = $Total

    INTERNATIONAL
    ((.42*#BADice) + 17.00 + $0.88) *1.05 + 0.40 = $Total
    ((.39*#DCDice) + 17.00 + $0.88) *1.05 + 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 either the 'X'ed or winged blood drop:

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.):

Pricing:

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 - BA DICE
1000+ dice: $0.39 per die - DC DICE

Shipping:

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 calcaulated once the final order is made and split by the members in the group buy. The last group buy had almost 3000 dice ordered and the shipping per person involved in the group buy was a mere $0.88.

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.


Payment
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 4% (5% 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 pay..


Time Group Buy Will Be Up
The time frame for this order will be 2 weeks. I plan to close this group buy on July 6th. All totals will be calculated and PMed to each member involved in the group buy. The deadline for money to be collected will be July 12th 2012. After that point, the full amount will be paid to Chessex and the order placed on July 13th. Turn around time from Chessex is approximately 6 weeks (if the order goes over 1000 dice).



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/design dice that you'd like (you can pick from as many of the four listed above, any combo, etc. PLEASE differentiate between DC or BA dice for each type you want)
  • The amount you'd like (we'd like to keep minimum dice orders to 10)
  • Where the order will be shipped if international

I am interested in getting some dice the small pack I got from GW is a little lame.
And all the 6's have been rolled out of them, only 1's and 2's left in them.
Those look freaking cool! And I want some for sure.

I would like 20 blood angel in red/white
And 20 DC in black / red

Do you need my paypal account name ,email and shipping address?
I've never done a paypal to paypal transaction before.

Can I just get this right...

If I would like 20 DC Dice then I would be looking at (best case scenario) $0.39*20, then a nominal amount for your local shipping, followed by $17 for int'l shipping and finally 5% + $0.30 for Paypal fees?

I think that makes around $27.50 for 20 dice? Is my math correct there?

Your math is incorrect. It's $28.14. Blame international shipping charges for the insane expense.

I have updated the original post with updated totals and prices. While doing this I noticed that I flubbed while copy/pasting the original post from the previous group buy. I had not changed the price per die ($0.39 /facepalm) to reflect the current price of $0.50/DC Die and $0.60/BA Die.

I apologize for the gross error and if this changes anyone's interest in the dice, I completely understand and would not blame anyone for backing out.

Thanks everyone!

@Sevenexxes - Going to stick with the blood drop as it is more common in their iconography and far simpler for me to design (I made the 'X'-ed blood drop.

@Sp4rky - International shipping sucks... trust me. It's also higher due to the fact that I am using USPS flat rate shipping boxes. Means I don't have to shell out money for boxes (USPS supplies these free of charge) and don't need to figure out individual shipping for each and every individual package (which would make this task very daunting.) If you're from the UK, however, that $17 USD translates to £10.5 as your currency is more valuable than US currency.

@Snorri - The velvet are like a murky black/grey cloudy color.

I initially thought they were going for a kind of stylised look that was supposed to make the cover seem to have elements of tapestry or resemble an illumination on an ancient manuscript.
But on closer inspection it turned out just to be crap.

Nice. Since I missed the last dice order

Please include me for:

20 BA in Signature Velvet Red/white
20 DC in Signature Velvet Black/red

((.60*#20) + 5.35 + $0.88) *1.04 + 0.30 = $19.26
((.50*#20) + 5.35 + $0.88) *1.04 + 0.30 = $17.18

Total = $36.44

If my math is correct.

will PM the paypal/email particulars

Thank you

Actually, in that instance I think the equation would be more like this:
((.60 X 20) + (.50 X 20) + 5.35 + .88) X 1.04 + .30 = $29.66

You were paying twice for shipping and paypal fees. I'm fairly certain it will be in one flat rate box (he put nearly 100 in mine in the last order), so no need for two boxes :D

Germany demands 20 Signature Velvet Black/red dice with the 'X'-ed blood drop! :)


Germany demands 40 more. :P

So that's 40 DC Velvet Signature black/red dice for me.
So its ((40 x 0.50) + 17.00 + 0.88 ) * 1.05 + 40 = 40.17(4)$ right? Or, in another currency, 32,33 €. Fine.

When do you need the paypal-information? Just before order placement, I take it?

totals updated!

Prices for both dice sets have reached the next price point ($0.42/DC dice and $0.50/BA dice (and yes I know die is singular of dice, but it looks weird lol...)

Also, for those posting paypal info, it's a tad early for that. I will be PMing all members their totals for confirmation of their order (proper numbers, colors, and logos) once confirmed everyone will reply to their PMs with their Paypal/primary email addy and mailing addy. Once I receive that info, I will send you an invoice via Paypal to which you can pay with your paypal account or (if you don't have one with them) you can simply use a credit card through their service.

Joe from Chessex just called to let me know that they were bought out of the velvet Red/White, but he has a few thousand of the OPAQUE Red/White Dice which is a very close match to the velvet. I have updated the thread listing with the picture of opaque red/white (they're actual BA dice ordered in that color.)
