OK, here's the deal.

We will order a stock of Flight Boxes when we get pre-orders covering $700 worth of them (our cost to order the stock). After they come in, they'll go on the web site and remain in stock until they sell out - at which point, we'll do this pre-order thing again.

To pre-order your flight boxes, please send a PM to Sam Pray on the BBS here, saying how many you want - we sell individually at the prices listed below:

Small (60 mm long, 42 mm wide by 35 mm high; peg at 30x14mm) $9/box
Medium (86 mm long, 60 mm wide by 40 mm high, peg at 43x30mm) $15/box
Large (130 mm long, 90 mm wide, by 60 mm high, peg at 65x45mm) $30/box

These are basically laser cut thick acetate, made in the US by Litko Aero. I have had no luck in getting them injection molded in China for a reasonable price.

If, by some miracle, we can pull in $5,000 on these pre-orders, the prices above will drop by approximately 33%, because Litko can buy the materials in bulk.

These boxes are taller than they need to be for the Honorverse and Attack Vector ships, to make it easier to mount other company's miniatures in them. You WILL need the pegs from the stands that ship with your miniatures to mount the minis inside the boxes, and the boxes will come as six panels that need to be glued together. (They do snap together nicely, but friction won't hold them together for regular play and usage.)

We are using the pre-orders to cover the cash outlay for the minimum order; once the pre-order threshold is met, they'll be in stock on the web store until we run out.

The pricing above does not include shipping, but they're fairly easy to add to an existing order.

Important:

Your PM MUST include an email address Sam can reach you at; it should NOT include your credit card number - we intend to run the credit cards all at once when we meet the threshold, and Sam will email everyone saying the threshold has met, with an order form on the web site.

We are currently 120 dollars short on having sufficient commitments to order flight boxes from our vendor, by the way. In essence, one or two more commitments for enough to play a full game should do it for us.

We're 600 dollars short on ordering the grease pencils from those vendors.
