We are currently building an initial estimate of the quantities of B&C dice that members would like to buy. This will help us to calculate the final cost.

The manufacturer, Q-Workshop, is currently finalizing the designs based on the below images, 1 through 6 from left to right:

tn_gallery_26_6764_4795.pnggallery_26_6416_0.giftn_gallery_26_6764_10779.pnggallery_26_6416_0.giftn_gallery_26_6764_1492.pnggallery_26_6416_0.giftn_gallery_26_6764_17282.pnggallery_26_6416_0.giftn_gallery_26_6764_15448.pnggallery_26_6416_0.giftn_gallery_26_6764_29913.png



Expect small changes such as the servitude studs being removed from the 6 face and the eyes/nose of the pip faces to be tweaked (changes will be to get the minimum sizes necessary/allowable for the manufacturing process).

The final designs will be shown here before we take your actual order.

Dice will be available in the following color combinations:

Die Color Combinations
Black with red designsRed with white designsWhite with black designsSandy with bordowy designsOrange with black designs

Final cost will depend upon the quantities of dice ordered - the more dice, the cheaper the cost. If at least 300 of each combination are ordered, cost will be adjusted (in our favor).

Here's the basic information from Q Workshop:

50 identical 16 mm D6 - 2.60 USD per die
100 identical 16 mm D6 - 1.50 USD per die
500 identical 16 mm D6 - 0.91 USD per die
1000 identical 16 mm D6 - 0.64 USD per die
5000 identical 16 mm D6 - 0.45 USD per die

If you order minimum 300 pieces in each color combination, they will be priced together, not separately and we will just add a color change fee - 100 USD for each extra color scheme.

The price includes full customization (all faces) with adjusting your design to our manufacturing requirements, preparing a graphic visualization (3D render) of the dice, manufacturing, painting with one of the standard colors, finishing touch and quality control.

The price does not include the shipping cost. We use economic courier service, we ship from Poland.


The other element of cost that we'll have to figure out will be shipping, both from Q Workshop (in Poland) to Brother Tyler (in Texas, USA), and then from Brother Tyler to you (potentially via a single member in Europe).

If you are interested in purchasing these dice, please send a PM to Brother Tyler with the following information:

- Red design on black die #
- White design on red die #
- Black design on white die #
- Bordowy design on sandy die #
- Black design on orange die #

Continent, Country, State/Province/whatever
This will not obligate you to making or changing the purchase once the design is finalized. We are simply collecting numbers in order to get an idea of the total quantities and resulting cost.

Numbers as of this morning:

- Red design on black die 496
- White design on red die 404
- Black design on white die 426
- Bordowy design on sandy die 529
- Black design on orange die 465

Total dice estimated (so far): 2,320

The $400 gets divided into $.18 per die.

Looking into it more, we're going to see an additional charge for shipping from Q-Workshop to me. That, too, will be divided equally by die. I don't know that charge yet, so I can't factor it into our cost estimate. I'm going to ask them about the possibility of splitting the shipment. If they can do that, it will allow us to ship the Americas/Australia portion to me and the Europe/Africa/Asia portion to our other (undetermined) logistics hub, saving everyone money (hopefully). If they can support that, we'll divide the shipping costs for each only among the applicable members. Even if there is a small additional fee for splitting the shipment, that will probably still be cheaper than shipping everything to me (dividing that cost by everyone) and then shipping a portion back over to Europe (dividing that cost by our European/Asian/African members). In essence, I'll explore every angle we can find to minimize the overall cost as much as possible.

 

 

Numbers as of this morning:

- Red design on black die 506
- White design on red die 429
- Black design on white die 486
- Bordowy design on sandy die 679
- Black design on orange die 500

Total dice estimated (so far): 2,600

The $400 gets divided into $.16 per die.

I'm working on a post that will show how the final costs will be calculated. There is math involved, though, and I'm old, so it will take time to get it right. Expect to see it later today, though. msn-wink.gif
