Media boxes seem like they'd be the best bet for shipping these domestically. 

 

Depends on how much to ship them would be since these stamps weigh a bit, then it's probably smart to add tracking and insurance. Do that with media boxes method and I bet it's $15+ depending on number of stamps whereas the USPS medium flat-rate box has tracking and insurance and can weigh up to 70 lbs for less than $12, you even get like a $.70 discount for pre-printing labels at home and the boxes are free.

Remember that media mail is restricted to media (books, DVDs, etc.).  Now, I don't know what the USPS does with media mail in reality, so it may not matter.  If they did inspect, they'd have to raise the rate or something. 

 

Does anyone know how much a stamp weighs?  Sometimes you can do better with standard priority mail than with flat-rate.

I so want to add Forest to my pledge. The more I look at it the more I like it. That would give me Imperial, Plaguelands and Forest. I like Dungeon but it doesn't have enough open floor space and I don't need all of those coins. I love the steps though. Forest would be very useful. Tons of minis would look right at home.

I feel like focusing on a pad specifically for a smooth/open floor/ground area, especially if you're on the fence between pads, isn't a good idea. I mean...you can just buy a HS stamp to cover that, and it's only $12.50. These are better for complicated and/or display terrain. Then again, if you're just looking for one pad that has both open and complex areas, and aren't debating internally, get down with your bad self and pledge away.

I really like the forest one too. Alas, my decision is made. I'm pretty sure something similar will be in basius 3 so I can wait.

Good point. I can always pick up another couple pads in next round.

That's a very good idea, although HS doesn't have a forest floor texture. May just have to stick to DIY forests bases until Basius3.

I'm hoping they'll take backer advice and improve on the forest pad. I like the wide expanse of forest floor texture. I'd use them for tiles since my group spends a lot of time in the woods, but I'd like some more variety of animals and such. The abandoned campfire is cool, the texture is great, good amount of logs, stream is nice. It could just be MORE.

Agreed entirely.

 

It's killing me that I'm going to have to wait until the spring for fulfillment!

Treebeard would agree. Although, he might not want a tree stump but I'd like one. That campfire might set him off, too.

I like that he put a stone coming out of the ground and didn't only have trees and branches. An animal hole would be nice, as well as a couple of half buried runestones. I still like it.

I just pledged for 3.   This despite the fact that until last month I never managed to get around to basing any of my minis at all.  Not even flock.

 

I am weak. 

 

[edit]  

 

What I could really use is a saddle pad that would make saddles for mounting figs on some Bones dragons.

It will be much cheaper to ship these in priority flat rate boxes if they weigh over a pound each as indicated above. Media mail does, occasionally, get inspected and if its not media it will be returned to the sender. It also can take forever to arrive, it is the lowest priority mail.

Just updated my spreadsheet with the changes:

Pad #	Price	Shipping    Total Cost	Total US        Price Per US
1	25	6       	31	$49.95  	$49.95
2	47	7       	54	$87.00  	$43.50
3	66	9       	75	$120.84 	$40.28
4	85	12      	97	$156.28 	$39.07
5	100	22      	122	$196.56 	$39.31
6	118	25      	143	$230.40 	$38.40
7	136	27      	163	$262.62 	$37.52
8	154	30      	184	$296.46 	$37.06
9	172	31      	203	$327.07 	$36.34
10	190	31      	221	$356.07 	$35.61
11	208	35      	243	$391.51 	$35.59
12	226	35       	261	$420.52 	$35.04
13	244	37              281	$452.74 	$34.83
14	266	39       	305	$491.41 	$35.10
15	280	41      	321	$517.19 	$34.48
16	298	42      	340	$547.80 	$34.24
17	316	45      	361	$581.63 	$34.21
18	334	50       	384	$618.69 	$34.37
19	350	48	        398	$641.25 	$33.75

Okay, so only changes are 10 and 12 pads.  The difference is about $0.15 per pad.
