making submissions

Post by Dropbear » Sun Dec 21, 2008 8:21 am

As this part of the bar is new, with myself as the potential barman, i was thinking the submissions/requests should be done in the following fashion:

Subject title: name of the requested model with scale wanted

Message Body: a description on what it is you are requesting, with any photos, information, or web sites etc that may be of help in showing others what it is you want made.


- any other suggestions for a group build submission?

If you are looking for me to organise the creation of these suggestions i would be using Ian Armstrong for any vehicles & Guns etc and Andrew of BattleField/Blitz for figures. Both well respected specialists in their fields. :)

With figure ranges it is also best to be specific with how many figures you want, what weapons/configuration, equipment and even poses if so inclined. Then indicate how many of each figure type you would want.

With vehicles you should also decide if you prefer metal or resin. I am learning that cost wise they are preatty much the same. Resin obviously being a bit more preassembled than metal. With resin i also do not use any fillers so it is 100% product and quite sturdy (i dropped a Bushmaster hull the other day onto tiles and it just bounced a little, but did not break/chip a single piece).

Because you guys are driving the development you should ensure as mush detail as possible. If you leave it to me and others to design then who knows what you might get!!!! :shock: :P :P :P :P

How many requests are necessary for a build to be accepted? I reckon that is a hard thing to be the judge of. It is easy for people to say they want a certain number of figures, but will they put their money where their mouth is?

Is advance payment necessary?

Right, I'm going to hit the sack as it is already 04.19 hours here in the Netherlands. :shock: Read a couple of pages from ANGAU: The Third Force is what I'm gonna do.

Actually, it might help whoever is trying to collate the interest if there was a standard format for showing interest, or at least saying at the top/bottom of the post I am interested in XX number of YY and then waffle on rather than have the interest lost inside the waffle.

So what you are saying is keep the posts to "I want X figures" and put the waffle in other posts elsewhere.

Good idea :)

Nope, waffle is fine, or we'd never know how some people feel about different rule systems, plus you'd need to talk about alot of different aspects to narrow down the scope of the final figures.

I'm guessing you're collating so I just imagine it would be easier for you if the first paragraph of a post in which someone was on board included a precise description of what they were after. It can then be edited anytime by a person if their needs change. I'd suggest it should be bold or coloured but some people may not get the hang of that yet. The if a person does follow up waffle posts, if it's got no bold/colour you can scan straight past it easy for numbers.

Once you have decided on your final list, generated genuine interest and are ready for it to be listed on BattleScape for confirmation orders, Please let me know.

I will then post the lists up on BattleScape, which i will aim to include pricing for.

There are some significant projects being generated, so people will be required to order and provide credit card details as a sign of their commitment.

Once a project has been confirmed and commissioned a deposit is likely to be required, particularly for the bigger projects.

Any questions or points, please post. :)

How many figures are needed to take a project from "wish list" to "to be done" list?

And how much deposit do you need from every one? I gather this will be based on how many figures each person orders within a project?

According to the "Fields of Fire: Reloaded" forum, the Group Build program is just a bunch of wish lists that will never be made... I replied in a nice way, mentioning how the CMF has the legs to be made now.

As soon as we get photos of the figures I am so going to post them over there :lol:

Important note on requesting number of figures:

Please do not say you want a Battalion worth, or a Company worth etc. Due to the different rules we all play and the game scales of these rules this could mean anything from 1 - 10 figures or 120.

It makes it hard for me to tally the numbers based on unit formation titles :)
