Which reminds me... an old gaming buddy, Dapprman, linked me to these ludicrously expensive and very snazzy dice that are being Kickstarted.

Perhaps, once it reaches mass production, price will drop?

It depends on what 'tech' is involved. The $200 price could be:

1.) a 'low introductory' price designed to 'encourage' purchase

2.) an initial 'high' price to help the 'exclusivity image' while they 'recover' the initial investment from people who will pay 'anything' to have the latest and greatest <weg>

3.) or just what it costs for development and 'tooling up'.

I imagine they want to make profit off of it too, so there will be mark-up.

I do like the idea of these dice and honestly I'd pay the price if not for the fact I own a crapton of dice already. We're probably all in that same boat here on DreamLyrics. I know Gypsy is. grin

I think everyone prefers a well-painted miniature to printed stands, but when I look at the state of my miniatures from being handled it makes me wonder if it's worth painting them at all.

So, although Paizo's stands aren't hugely inspiring to look at, the art's decent and ultimately you get 300, ready to go, in the box for about 40 quid. So it makes a lot of sense. Easier to store and you can make your own additions too.

When I was still playing f2f, I had two types of figs. Those that I had painted and were 'on display' and those that I purchased for use in play ( those were mostly plastic and 'pre-painted' <g> )

It's probably different now, but back when I was painting minis the aerosol matte varnish cost a fortune. And of course, when you sprayed it, most of it didn't even land on the mini.

Ironically, now I'm all grown up, the biggest obstacle to me painting miniatures again isn't cost, it's space!

Ideally I'd like to strip my existing miniatures some how and have a go at painting them again, now that I can afford a boxful of colours and brushes and all the kit.

Do some searching Nem. I =vaguely= remember discussions on how best to get figs ready to 'repaint' a decade or two ago :-/

=I= never got around to doing any of that ... mostly 'cuz I am too lazy and it was =really= cheap to just buy new figs <weg>

I had loads, painted them all then gave them away a year or two later. I think the other barrier than space, is time! grin But I enjoyed my time with them.

Hey MikeD, I looked into stripping my painted miniatures and it seems very doable. Even with the plastic ones. Messy and time-consuming, mind you. Maybe I'll save it as a retirement project. wink

Has anyone played Starfinder btw? I'm curious how they handle starship combat in using what's basically D&D 3.75.

I painted a bunch of minis in my youth which we still use today and would love to do some more when we need them but the eyes don't like the fine detail work anymore.
