they look really nice, but how much do they cost from stores?
You probably wouldn't find them in most stores :wink: .
Paying shipping for rocks of all things seems rather insane though, .
I had said as much before. I think shipping might not be viable. They are primarily for my walk-ins (and my use of course). I wanted to see how useable you all thought they might be for games.
although they certainly do look good in some of your pics, and would work a lot better than my current terrain of roughly cut ovoid pieces of pink foam
That's the point here. They're ready to go, and look like... rocks.
So: does white glue stick to them (for flocking)
I would think more like superglue, as white glue would probably rub off.
do they chip or lose paint easily?
They are maybe a mortar-like material, so if they were dropped on the sharp edge, might break. As far as paint, I wouldn't say it's a paint finish, it looks like more of a colored acid or etching compound. In other words, they don't look painted, they look like... rocks :wink: .
how much would you be willing to sell them for?
How much would you be willing to buy
them for? :wink: :wink: :wink: (see poll).
OK, seriously, that's what this is about. There is a resistance to pay for what looks like something you might pick off of the ground. BUT, these aren't found on the ground, they are manufactured "faux" (fake) rocks, and are dang good ones at that (heh). I'm trying to get a feel for gamer acceptance of ready-made rocks for tabletop use. While I think they are nifty (and I'm the only one that gets to feel and look at these in my hands), I wanted to see the reaction. It's about what I expected, with most resistant to paying much and those with a more open mind to them being kidded by the rest (lol). As in, "you'd really buy rocks from that chap?" :wink: . I really do find this very interesting. If you ever get down this way, you can have a look at 'em. I might even let you pick them up
. And since you'd be a "walk-in", I might make you a deal.
and where did YOU get them
I could tell you, but then I would have to fill out a section eight form for your mind erasure...
