  1. As much as I would love to see prepainted Townsfolk and larger plastic models, I would rather see the line take off first so that it has staying power. There's a reason these minis have all been "done before", it's that they sell. Townsfolk get lots of requests in the regular 'Minis we would like to see' thread too, yet they continue to undersell other sculpts - requests for things on message boards does not equal sales. For all your poo-pooing of the line, you still say you will buy a couple. Doesn't that say something? Nah, Statler and Waldorf were funny...
  2. LSS, my website has been hosted by GoDaddy for a while now. However, I've had a few outages lately (at least, I've noticed them lately now that my message boards send me an email when it goes down). The kicker though, was when GoDaddy overcharged me $10 (for a couple of domains) - and then compounded it by being complete jerks about it when I called to complain (including, but not limited to, lying to me). THEN, they re-upped my hosting without telling me (charged my CC automatically). That's pretty much the last straw, I'm done with them. That means I need a new hosting site that I ca
  3. Sounds familiar... It seems like this would have been a simple thing to get into production. Maybe accessory/conversion packs don't sell that well?
  4. Because I'm not open Sundays.* If you let me know when you'll be driving through, I'll meet you there! *I'm expanding my hours in June though...
  5. Maybe he chews his minis? Who are we to judge? Actually, if he has little ones, I can see avoiding lead minis. Those things get into everything (the little ones, not the lead minis)... It should be noted though, that the regular Reaper minis don't say "lead free" for a reason (although I do believe that it was posted that the levels are so low they legally could, but that Reaper didn't want to mislead their customers into thinking that there was none at all).
  6. It's OK, you can say Wizards of the Coast... Some of the "I've got no place left to go" feeling is perpetuated by fans of the DDM line. Surprisingly, there is a somewhat large anti-Reaper contingent of DDM players/buyers that will always chime in to shout down any mention of the LE line. As much as there's always a group that's anti-WotC for being part of a big (read: evil) corporation, they have their counterparts in those who write off Reaper as failed because they can't come out with a huge new release every couple of months. It's been a while since I've been on other sites discus
  7. I like this idea... Not too keen on more forums though, I actually wish we could make some disappear (you can collapse some, but not all of them).
  8. Apologies in advance to Kellyn... How does he know what you have? Just ship it to him and force him to make something out of it!
  9. I run Friday Night Magic and I have minis (and paints to paint them in store). If you want to stop by Mt Morris...
  10. Did they just make a huge purchase? Having just made a few rather large Reaper purchases for the opening of my store, I can sympathize with that feeling...
  11. Didn't know. My store has only been open for a month anyway, so if they were the 'old' Pro Paints it was before my store opened...
  12. Point Of Information: The DDM bases actually are not 1" and 2" round, they're a tad smaller. The 4" DDM bases were actually square (the Icon Dragons had 4" bases). But I wasn't a friendly retail guy then...
  13. Yeah, the pricing kind of puts me off too. Because Reaper doesn't have the economies of scale I think LE would work out better for larger figs. Using multipiece figs probably doesn't help keep costs down (off the top of my head, one piece Zombie - $2.49, multipiece Good Fighter - $4.49). Other than DDMs though (which has dirt cheap commons and uncommons since people chase the rares), who has much cheaper? Confrontation has 6 human size minis for $30 ($5 a mini - although a lot of places are discounting them) and the new DDM distributions raises their price to 3 for $12 ($4 a mini).
  14. But for an every week thing? If all I ran was games with your own decks, wouldn't it end up being "TS is here with his killer deck, why bother playing..."? I've already had a couple of guys tell me that they don't like going to another store because they know who they will beat and who will beat them. Well, I'll get there eventually, but it annoys me that I have to run an "organized event" before I can run an event for them. Apparently a Savage Worlds game and a Paint And Take don't count... Here's a question for you, can you run a booster draft with just Conflux? I was goin
  15. I've been a DJ at a local radio station for the past 8 years (90.5fm WBER), I wish I had a tenth of his talent. With all the guest hosts that he's had lately (actually, since the passing of his wife), you kind of knew something was up... Rumors of radios demise have been greatly exaggerated...
  16. It's only been a couple of days. I'll post anyway...
  17. Your brother does a better job sucking Bennies from me.
  18. But once they've got you in their sights, they will keep you in them. I got audited 5 years ago for the first time and have now been audited 3 times (and last year I gave in and checked the 'you do the calculations for me' box, I figured if they calculated it they could "pre-audit" me and I could skip the waiting and hand wringing). That's not just "unlucky", it has to be hard wired into the system. The good news is I've gotten money back every time I was audited (although twice it was less than $20 - at least I didn't have to go in for those), so it's not as bad as people make it out to
  19. In deference to the mods, insert your own scatological Twitter joke here...
  20. I haven't had any requests for Yu-Gi-Oh yet. Probably a good thing... Lots of interest in Magic, but I know very little about it other than I want to run Friday Night Magic. It's funny that you should mention booster drafts and Standard format, since I've already had a couple of players try to tell me to run Type 2 events (which I think are old cards - if I can't sell it, why run it?). As for actually running WotC events, well, we're having "issues" (and since a small LGS means nothing to WotC, guess which way it's flowing). Apparently they want "twenty seven eight-by-ten color glos
  21. Thanks all! Despite long hours of staring at the walls (I don't have internet in the store yet!), I'm above my projected first months sales (I did a soft open first). Running GAGG (a local Con) put me over the top last weekend, but I still have room to grow though. The bad thing is, my best sellers are 2E AD&D and $1 bin DDM commons and uncommons. One that's out of print and another that's about to have it's distribution changed... And yes, I'm still conflicted about not being able to go to Gen Con should the store take off, but I have to get it there first, so it's back to wo
