CamoSpecs - GenCon Diorama 2019 - Sales!
« on: 19 July 2019, 04:22:41 »
Folks,

An exciting announcement from the talented painters of CamoSpecs!

Quote
The artists at Camo Specs Online would like to announce a few things Battletech fans may or may not know about the CSO GenCon Dioramas.

The 2019 diorama is definitely happening and what many of you may not know, is that we often sell a great deal of the miniatures, terrain pieces and even the entire display board to attendees and the like at the end of the convention. This year we're being a bit more proactive and orderly about it as we feel it's something that we'd like to offer to anyone interested regardless of whether or not you can attend the convention.

We will post up pictures as well as any details (like the display board dimensions) after the start of GenCon on a few of the CBT FB pages with what is being offered and the asking prices. We'll work actively through the process on a first come-first serve basis so those that aren't there in person are given a fair chance. In all likelihood we'll use a dedicated email address (to be provided later) so that we don't have to chase when a PM or reply was made to be as fair on the offerings.

Our attending CSO artists look forward to meeting as many of you and hopefully sending you home with something you really enjoy.

Standby for further announcements!

Please feel free to comment below - questions can be asked, but it'll depend on the free time of the artists as to how quickly we can get answers.
* No, FASA wasn't big on errata - ColBosch
* The Housebook series is from the 80's and is the foundation of Btech, the 80's heart wrapped in heavy metal that beats to this day - Sigma
* To sum it up: FASAnomics: By Cthulhu, for Cthulhu - Moonsword
* Because Battletech is a conspiracy by Habsburg & Bourbon pretenders - MadCapellan
* The Hellbringer is cool, either way. It's not cool because it's bad, it's cool because it's bad with balls - Nightsky
* It was a glorious time for people who felt that we didn't have enough Marauder variants - HABeas2, re "Empires Aflame"

So . . . IMO, the biggest question for folks not present will be- are pictures going to be posted by folks working GenCon as soon as the Con opens?  B/c the first place I usually see pictures is from later that night or at earliest in the evening when someone takes pity on those not present.

All things going as planned, I'll get pics Wed night of the Con, and have them posted to the CSO Facebook page with prices by Thurs morning when we open up the available items to everyone.

For the next three weeks, Ryan is going to wake each night in a cold sweat, having pictured this happening just outside the CSO table:

What does state-side shipping for the average mini work out as?

I only ever ship Priority mail insured. The less time the USPS is in possession of painted miniatures, the better.

I can agree with that, thanks for letting me know so I can look up what it would run to factor into the price of minis- we going to get any sort of provenance for 35th Anniversary GenCon diorama?

This would have had a better chance at my money had there not been a certain Kickstarter going on right now.

We totally get that there are lots of folks laying out cash for the KS. It's not a big deal as if they don't sell, they'll either be sold later or go back to the artists.

This is just an opportunity to purchase CSO minis that wasn't widely known.

Will people need to go through the forthcoming email if they are there in person? Also, what is the average price for mechs, scenery, etc?

No, but if you're present at the Con and not there when the sale officially opens, you can send an email and still try to get what you're looking for.

Prices will be around $40 and up, we're still getting that sorted by the artists. I'll get another announcement up in a day or two to inform folks of the email address, the time the items will be officially up for sale with their associated prices.

Keep in mind the galleries and prices will be on Facebook only due to the ease of uploading and updating.

Slightly OT - I'm interested, but what I'd really like to see is more, better pictures of the diorama - more angles, more wide shots showing the whole thing.

Hey folks we’re almost ready to hit the road for GenCon. Here’s an update on the CSO miniature sales and process. We’ll post this again shortly before the sales start as a reminder and possibly with some minor edits.

We will try to be as fair and diplomatic about as much as we can for folks both attending and not attending. Please be respectful of the fact that the decision to open sales up to non-attendees was intended to benefit all the Battletech fans out there but it’s not a guarantee that you’ll be able to purchase what you’re interested in.

--In-person and email sales will start at 1200 local time (EDT) on Thursday, August 1st
--Nothing will be sold before 1200 Thursday
--The diorama usually gets packed up by late Sunday morning, so don’t wait until the last day
--Requests for purchasing miniatures will only be accepted via email to camospecsonline@gmail.com (no PMs, text messages, Messenger requests etc) This is to keep FB pages from getting out of hand and centralize non-attendee requests.
--Pictures of the miniatures and terrain board along with prices should be up on the CSO Facebook page by Wednesday evening but no later than 1100 Thursday before the sale.
--Priority will be given to whole unit/lot purchases if multiple simultaneous inquiries are received
--Cash or PayPal are the only forms of payment accepted
--Paypal email address is raptor9817@aol.com
--Shipping costs are not included in the listed prices
--B1BFlyer A.K.A. Ryan Peterson will be the primary contact for sales and will do his best to be available, but keep in mind his job at the Con is not to sit at the diorama and check his email every 7 seconds.

Thanks,
The CSO Team

Can you tell us what shipping costs typically are?  Could someone attending pick it up for someone not attending?

Where, physically, is the diorama? I’m at GenCon and would like to take a look on Thursday.

You know, I'm just looking at that red and gold paint scheme and thinking how much a Black Knight would look like Iron Man in those colors.

I see Snow Speeder parts on top.. The triangle-ish parts on top where the two halves of the Millennium Falcon come together...
