I put a note on the preview page regarding the add-on packs. I didn't see any info on shipping on that page, though- the info you added here regarding shipping is very helpful, so that should definitely be on the main page somewhere.

I obviously like that you're offering free shipping on orders over $100 in the US, and the $10 international shipping credit is good because it is equivalent to the US shipping. However, I've seen that folks really want to know what it will cost to ship internationally, or at least an estimate. So, getting that ready before launching is a good idea, too.

Yep I'll have a little chart or list showing some expected shipping costs. I should be able to squeeze 3 mechs into a USPS small flat rate shipping box. The rulebook won't fit in them though. But that would cost something like $13 to ship to the UK, larger boxes will be in the $20-30 range though I think. I wish they didn't have to make shipping so expensive :(

I would highly suggest not using flat rate shipping boxes for your international rewards. The price on them skyrocketed, and a small flat rate shipping box is $24.75 to the UK. To test various prices on the flat rate boxes, you can go to this website and click "Calculate Prices":

https://www.usps.com/ship/priority-mail-international.htm

It's insane. However, first class international shipping is much more reasonable. I would highly recommend using first class shipping, instead. Since the price hike, I have switched to solely first class for international shipping, and have not had any issues whatsoever.

I also PM'ed you a question, just FYI

Hmm .. when I was checking it said something like $12.70.. guess it was old info. I'll have to use standard boxes then, they should even cheaper for domestic shipping since resin mechs are light

Exactly, no point paying for a box that could weigh up to 4 pounds when you're shipping resin!

You can't keep a good Mech down! The Terran Titans are back and this time it's personal. Bigger, badder and with more weaponry, Monday Night Mecha just took a power punch to the metal-encased ribs.

I'll be in for $150!

I did lots of price calculating on usps.com for places like the UK, China, Brazil and Australia, pretty much the same price everywhere except Canada which is cheaper. I think I'm just going to make it a max rate for all... $20 shipping to the UK for any pledge amount, and $15 to canada. That's an estimated price, in some cases it may be cheaper when you do the pledge manager check out, like if you're just getting a rulebook and that's all.

So I guess I will have to do that with a coupon code... if you do the pledge manager check out and you shipping ends up higher, you can apply the code and get your discount. But the discount will only apply to first class mail, if you want something like express mail then you have the pay the full price .. that will be like $80 so I don't think anyone's going to do that... but the option will still be there

You gotta post those scale shots up again!

Those were awesome!

Wife has been busting my chops about too many figures, too many games, too many books... thankfully I never heard her mention too many mechs.

I'm in for one at the very least.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Added the scale shots I had to photoshop the 2 different old photos together, but it should do for now. Once I get the master samples for the medium mech I can take a new pic.

And you can never have enough mechs

That shipping plan sounds like a good one, Necros, and if you apply the $10 shipping credit for international backers who pledge $100 it looks pretty generous for all. Just make sure you've covered your costs! But using first class mail definitely makes it so much more affordable.

No shipping credit, just the max charge now. I was thinking, if shipping would cost around $20 for orders under $100, and $30 for orders over $100, then the $10 credit just makes it $20 no matter what. So rather than all the adding and subtracting I figured it would be easier to offer a "$20 max shipping" coupon code to the international backers.

Looks cool! Will you be including the Proxie Models items this time around too?
   
Made in us

Right now I'll just be using Proxie's bases, but I think that's gonna be it for now. I mostly wanted to use their ruined buildings and stuff for the 15mm game at first, but they don't make a 28mm version. They have some bigger buildings but I want everything to have a "ruined" look

Once things get up and running I'm hoping to do the 15mm scale models in a more traditional squad based wargame.. same universe, just not a gladiator arena sport and more of a war theme. So that will be perfect for ruined buildings and other stuff... but that is probably a long ways off right now, I want to focus on 1 game at a time

Looks like the campaign page was accepted already I'm going to hold off on launching it till tomorrow (Sunday) night. I have all of the menus done now, just have to finish the payload images then we'll be all set

I'll probably be in for a single mech. If we go in for just a single kit, will we be able to choose the arm/equipment loadouts, or is it just what's available in the pre-selected loadouts?

Yes you can do custom payloads I thought it would be easier for most folks to just pick the pilots they want. But what I was going to do, in the pledge manager I'll have it set up where you can select the weapons you want with dropdown menus, kind of like the way you would select a tshirt size or color from online stores.

Planning to hit the launch button tonight after Game of Thrones But I guess technically tomorrow will be the first day, I don't think any news sites will be posting the links till then anyway.

Sounds good to me! I know you have a few freebies listed, just be conservative with them and make sure this covers your costs. Will be putting in a pledge for two sets of 3 mediums (6 total).

I'm totally going to support this... the mechs look plenty wicked gnarly awesome... Just have to do some calculations and forecasting to see if I'll be able to allocate funds to this by the time the funding date comes around.

Well, I wasn't the first, but I least got to be in the first 5 backers!

Time to go collapse in a heap in a corner after being stuck in the sun all day with the kids at Disneyland.
