I've been making lots of big boxes, the twenty miniature company sized, and decided to take a little break. One of the other convention experiments this year will be these ten mini tuck-boxes that I'm listing as "Encounter!" sets. The boxes are certainly easier and faster to make.

I like that you have CDs with the printable files available for sale, too--that didn't come up until now in this thread, but it's a really good idea.
Even if you don't include gluesticks in the sets, you should definitely have gluesticks available for sale, so people can buy your sets, glue them, and put them in play at the convention. You can get them in bulk at Costco and sell them for a couple of bucks to turn a profit on them as well. Of course, if this isn't a convention where people play miniature or rpg games, that's less important. But you should figure out which game conventions are within a reasonable distance of your home and try to attend those. If you're breaking even at a non-gaming convention, I'd think you'd make a good profit at any con where people are actively playing Kings of War or similar games. ("I've got a game in an hour, and if I only had a company of minotaur spearmen and some elf cavalry, I'd kick ass...wait, what's this? Omigod, gimme gimme!")

Thanks, CD's were an experiment from a previous year, they sell okay. I live in Anchorage Alaska and after I quit running gaming/rpg conventions when I was in college the local scene dried up for a long time. There is a group called "Alaska Battle Brothers" that puts on a TTG convention; I scouted them last year and it is all X-Wing and 40K tournaments. I've set up shop at the Anime convention because it is the best attended by the biggest cross-section of the community.
There is "The Alaska Steamposium" coming in April and I'm hoping to have my VSF print-n-play games completed by then so I can offer physical products that fit the theme of the convention. It's also not an RPG/TTG event but it does look fun.
Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.

Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
