My posting has been few and far between lately. Mostly because any spare time I had was spent either getting my fleet painted for Dropfleet at LVO or getting product ready for the long drive and subsequent marathon that is the LVO.
Last Saturday, the Dropzone guys at Endgame Oakland got together to play some Dropfleet. We had 11 players show up (The One Who Is Late was late, of course) but only 3 of the 4 factions were represented.
For organizing my first tournament, it seemed to have gone pretty well. Our local Meta/attendance has dropped off dramatically so I'd hoped to try and breath some life back into the area by hosting a tournament at Endgame in Oakland, CA.
Cameron Blume and I battled it out at Endgame in Oakland, CA back in late June (early July?). Now that he's a Bay Area resident he came by one of our DzC Saturday events and we ran through a 1000 point game of Targets. It was a close (and) bloody game!
GSI has made the leap to a new shipping service which enables me to now ship around the world using USPS First Class mail! This could mean shipping as low as $15.00 for up to an 8 ounce package, worldwide! Prices vary with the weight and size of the shipment, of course.
These new rates are typically a savings of 40%, or more, per shipment over the old Flat Rate boxes Paypal requires when you use their service!
If you've been holding off buying anything from GSI because of the cost of shipping, now might be a great time to browse all the new products and take advantage of these lower rates!
