I'd be interested in cavalry trays too in the future. There's rumblings that I may be delving more into fantasy.

Bravo!
Thank you very much, how many cavalry trays would you be interested in?

Heh I am not sure how many I could fit in a tray but I will look into it. I also meant how many trays would you be interested in? ;)

Thank you, hopefully you will be able to see one first hand ;)

As a side note for those wanting cavalry trays would you prefer them laying down sideways or standing up?

Cheers!

Sethis did a great review of the product, and I'm glad to see there's cost effective options out there for people....but....the idea of paying $70+ for a cardboard box is ridiculous to me. I'd rather shell out the coin for something that doesn't look like I could make it for less.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Well it must be a good idea as it works for KR.

What about covering it yourself with pva and paper of some sort? This could make it more waterproof (at least less likely to get completely ruined in the rain) you'd then have a nice personalised case

Ha I would look to have the larger ones (6 x 36 slots is it?) and maybe some cav ones if you decide to make them?

I am looking into it. The boxes will be branded at a later date also.

Ah ok, wouldn't pick and pluck be better that way you can shape it to how you want and comes in handy if you have them magnetised on a movement tray?

Never heard of them. I assume they are another purveyor of cardboard boxes, which is probably why.

Millions of people eat at McDonalds but it doesn't mean they make good food.

I dunno, cardboard can be pretty tough. My battlestar galactica box has survived several hundred games and is still going strong, and I'm not exactly careful with it.

If you're worried about water, you could always get that contact stuff you stick over books.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

I am confused. How you can compare my product, which provides utility and a cheaper alternative than similar products (if you had bothered to look before chiming in), and an actual use, compared to a fast good chain which provides little to no nutritional value and causes more problems than it solves.

I checked into your product, and the first thing I said was that I was glad there is a less expensive alternative and that Sethis' review was a good one. What I said afterward is that it ain't for me.

You said it must be a good idea because another company is doing well with the cardboard approach. You can count any number of companies that have tried copying the McDonalds approach to fast food, and they all pretty much suck just as hard because they are copying a bad idea. People think it's a good idea, maybe because McD's is making so much money, but in fact it's just crap (a shortened version of your description of their product) that people are buying based on price and availability. Likewise, I think you have started this product based on an idea that is...shall we say less than optimal, since I don't think it's total crap. To me, it doesn't matter how much less your product costs: it's still a cardboard box.

Doesn't mean other people can't enjoy it, just means it's the internet and not everyone is going to love what you got going on.

I get that, I worked in international shipping for 4 years in my early 20's. Also means I've seen a ton of the bad things that can go wrong with cardboard though, which is where my dislike of the product comes from. Cardboard works for some, not for me.
