Some comments:

 

"3a-1)Use common sense. Also, if you have some hand-crafted, custom-built shark skin and mithril dice bags or whatever that you're certain everyone will love, PM your coordinator and the folks in your circuit and see what everyone thinks of the idea. Majority rules.   "

 

Likewise if what you have to offer is a bunch of broken clix, toys and figures with parts cut off ask yourself if any of it is going to be really useful to people downstream from you.  Some of it might be interesting for conversions, but I think most people are looking for complete figures.   (I've got an entire zip bag stuffed with this crap in my box that no one has wanted in the past 2 rounds, should I include it?  Do you want to be in my circuit?) 

 

"10) if something comes up and you need to drop out for whatever reason (life happens), please contact your coordinator as soon as possible so that he/she can make the necessary adjustments."

 

Super important.  Life happens, we get that.  Be respectful of your friends in the circuit and PM the coordinator.   If things change we can add you in again at the end. 

 

 

Suggested add:

 

POST PICTURES, please.  Sharing is part of participating.  It's more fun when everyone can see what you picked and vicariously experience the thrill of new finds.  

 

 

Question:

 

How do we feel about 3d printed figures?  I'm not sure what permissions come with various .stls  these days.  Are they personal use only?   Does anyone even want 3d prints?  Is a 3d print equal to a metal or Bones figure in exchange?

Inarah makes some good points. PLEASE consider the use/value of what you want to put in the box. When in doubt, ASK. Using her example of a bag full of broken/parts missing clix, I would either PM the group I was in and ask if there's any interest in it, or put it in labeled 'free'; either would be reasonable, IMO.

Please note that the bag of broken stuff DOES NOT count as your exchange. If you take out 10 whole, complete figures, you'd need to put back in 10 whole, complete figures.

Excellent question!

 

What does everyone think?

Are we going to try and wait till most of us get Bones 4? I have several things in there I'd be willing to let go:)

We'll see how everything works out. Signups are a week and a half, and it might take me as much as a week after that to get everything organized, so we're gonna be halfway through April before we get going. It might be a non-issue.

As far as the 3-D printed stuff, I'd prefer not to see them. They are getting better, but still not up to the quality of a metal or bones IMHO. As Inarah also mentioned, there is an issue of rights to the mini.

*crossing fingers Bones 4 gets here soon:) I am in California, so it should! Wave 1 and all haha*

I'm all for 3d printed minis. There are some you can't get but only as 3d printed minis. A backer of Fat Dragon's KS minis I'd be happy to put in some of those, along with others I've got files for. Since I'm not selling them, I'm sure it'll be fine.

Even if you're not selling them you may not have the rights to distribute them in any form.

I just asked Fat Dragon Games. We shall see what they say about it. If not them, I've got other sources for files. Ones that were free to download & such. Considering they are based on 5e creatures I doubt there is any problem with those.

I'm fine with 3D figures.  In fact the past couple of boxes that have passed through my hands have had some (figure and terrain bits) and I've taken a couple.

 

There's also been plaster cast terrain bits (I've taken some of those too), so if we're going to discuss the legality of homemade stuff using commercially available production methods, I suspect that kind of thing needs to be included.  For example, what's Hirst Arts stance on distributing their stuff.

I believe Hirst says if you sell more than $500 in a year then you need a license.  I'm not aware of any restrictions on giving away small amounts of blocks. 

 

When you buy an e-book you have the right to have that file on your personal device(s).  You can print it to read if you want.  You don't get to make copies for friends and share.   I haven't backed any Kickstarters for 3d figures,  but it seems to me the rules would be the same unless expressly stated otherwise.  If not, would someone please print out a few of those $60 dragons from the KS I saw last year and put some in my box when it goes around?

i would be fine with 3d minis as long as they are not too brittle.

Some are sturdy but there are also 3D minis who wouldn't survive multiple shipping and handling.

 

I own a Krentz Giganotosaurus ( is now a mount for my Lost World heroes) but that one would break into pieces if you sneezed at it for example.

And I think 3D minis are fine, but there should at least be a bit of quality in them, AKA not too grainy or rough.

It seems that, so far anyway, the vast majority of people are ok with 3-d printed figures. If that doesn't change, I guess they're in.

 

I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, but I don't think there should be any issue with them; we're not selling them to one another we're giving them as gifts (more or less).

 

Glitterwolf makes a good point; any 3-d printed items should be roughly as good quality as Bones figures, not rough and grainy. That said, I haven't seen any 3-d stuff yet, how is the quality for those that have?

Quality varies considerably, depends on the machine and how well you have adjusted it.  I agree that any prints you send should be as nice as possible.
