I am planning on spinning some G1 Nightmares for giveaways at cons to players who participate in the games. Also, I feel GMs like yourself should be part of reward program. Any thoughts on this from everyone would be appreciated.

I think the free Nightmare in a small ziplock baggy with product card is a great idea.  Swag of any sort is always welcome among players.  If they don't want/need it, it usually gets into another set of hands which in effect doubles exposure.

As for reward program, I find it hard to say no;-)  ...but, I leave that up to you to decide.

I guess at a minimum, the GM needs materials, so maybe the demo set to start.  After that maybe you can offer 'credit' points per game run that can be traded in for stuff.  I would like to think people WON'T take advantage of you, but this way it's minimized if they show proof of running games.  The ones that try, win, the ones that don't try...don't care.

As mentioned previously, I will be running games of Legions of Steel and hopefully Stalingrad at Fall In! on November 15-17 in Valley Forge, PA.  If anybody here is planning on attending this event, please contact me and maybe you can assist and/or partake in the fun.

Hi Everyone,

This is an official call out for players to run games at local cons and events. I am almost finished with the tutorial scenarios but want to get started on lining up cons and events. I will also set up a loose format for running the games but I am very open to suggestions and input.

Lets start drafting a timetable and we can go from there. You can reply here or email me directly at rayboxgames@gmail.com

thanks and cheers.

Hi everyone,

I have been busy on streamlining the rules and creating the first 4 introductory/tutorial scenarios that will be in the first boxed set.

I have met with Rafm and am getting the ball rolling on pricing.

I also am getting 2 quotes on the production of box, boards etc for the boxed set.

And finally, getting some tentative costs of plastics. This would be more for expansions, weapon sprus and accessories.

Any questions are welcome.

I have found some early production pieces. I am going to organize what I have and perhaps run a new mold. I can do a limited run from there. I will keep you posted on these but if I can I'd like them made in September.
Excellent!

Great to hear about the shows. I'd love it for you to show off the games there. Would it be good to find you a fan or player to assist you. I can do a call out on reddit.
Sure!

...and as a follow-up, I need to submit my game(s) before August 30th.  So if there is any shot, I would need to have some material in the next couple weeks to feel confident in pulling it off (Stalingrad, I'm looking at you).  I have all the materials I need for LoS, just need direction on how you would want me to show it off.

Absolutely. Lets go over what you need via email. I have tested the first 2 scenarios you made and 2 others. I will send you the updated scenarios. Each one introduces new rules so it eases in the new players. More experienced players can play the later scenarios.

***************************************************************************************
Big shame with the molds, I would have loved to get a hold of the old versions, being a collector and all.

As for cons, we have 3 big ones here in PA every year (Cold Wars, Historicon, Fall In).  I used to frequent them all, but haven't much recently as there hasn't been much that has called me back to it...until now I hope!  So I'd like to at least get something going for Fall In, November 14-17.  Outside of that, I'd be more than willing to travel beyond my sphere of influence with LoS/Stalingrad once things are officially released. ***************************************************************************************

Sounds great Kevin. Alas, I only have a few here. The molds and masters were lost, sadly. We will do new sculpts when the time is ready. Which cons that are coming up are you considering?

Hey Kevin. I think I can use them. Please send me the files and I will let you know. Thanks and I will have them updated soon

I emailed the files to you earlier today.
