  1. I'm pretty sure the flat-rate box (the actual box) cannot be used for (shipping) purposes other than through the USPS - I once tried to use one to ship something through my UPS store (only because I had it with me, and wanted to see if they could), and they told me the only way I would be able to do that is taking it apart, inverting it, and putting it back together inside out, so they couldn't see the USPS branding/labeling... ... I took it to the main post office a few miles down the road.
  2. An additional point, for me, is "is this old minis/lead that I haven't actually seen time and again"? - like, there's lots of the old Grenadier and Ral Partha fantasy lead wandering about (not just in the Box o Goodwill) - but not so much the weirder lines, or such. Part of that is collectability - TSR Top Secret or Star Frontiers minis are actually worth money! (in addition to being much harder to find in general), part of it is just rarity. But that's a highly individual thing - what is common as rocks for one person might be "I have never seen this before in my life" for another
  3. This is absolutely the way to go - between the minis that I already have in metal (about ten), the ones I was utterly less than interested in (anything zombie... - another nine), and the ones I really can't easily adapt to much besides their own genre (the rednecks, the WWII soldier, much of the Steampunk stuff) - there was really only a little bit I was actually actively interested in in this go-round (Deja-Vu Thoris, the Whatevers from Beyond Space and Time, and the robots) - and they just didn't add up to the cost, and hassle of dealing with the rest - even if the hassle was just "dump it
  4. I volunteer as... wait. No. Not that again. Not this time. More seriously - I'm in! Location: Western NY No on international shipping this time, sorry. Unwilling to start a box.
  5. I'm hoping the first plastics have a better mix of male and female characters options in the initial offering (instead of waiting for a second box, as with Frostgrave's Wizards and Soldiers boxes) - although using Stargrave heads on Frostgrave bodies could also be an option, I guess? But I'm pretty interested in these sets as well - and not just because my next campaign looks to be a kind of pulpy Sci-Fi game with an area of space that would end up looking a lot like the Stargrave (if for very different reasons).
  6. The Wolfen are almost certainly from Rackham's Confrontation.
  7. Given the number of other sources for singles out there - including stores that specialize in the MtG singles market - my guess is that for a high-volume, low-overhead retailer like Miniature Market, the costs of shucking singles are just too prohibitive (and it's a non-trivial process - even if not buying collections, just going pack-to-sleeve, you have a lot of people-hours involved. And given the massive pivot in recent months (not just COVID related) to the online card game environment (more Arena than MTGO, at this point), I can certainly see the market as a whole starting to
  8. I wanna be on Haldir's box next time! :-D (currently spinning things up for a sci-fi/cyberpunkish game...)
  9. I took things! So, that's the loot take, this time around. I need to arrange for deposits, seal everything up, and get the address for the next person on the list - assuming all goes according to plan, this should go out Friday, presuming we don't get vast snowfall or something in the meantime.
  10. Sure, I'm in this time. Location: Rochester, NY, USA International: Not this time, please Box Starter: Not really feasible at this time.
  11. So there's been some discussion elsewhere on what a portable painting station should entail, and I figured I'd get this discussion started. So here's mine. It's undergone some evolution and change over the years, and this is just the latest iteration. The basic case is just an ordinary tool box I bought at Aldi a while back. It was one of those "I will find a use for that" purchases that sat in the airlock (the foyer between the outside and the inside of my home) for a while before I decided I needed a new painting station, and this was going to be it. The lamps (more later)
