How long does it take to get an order from ProtoParts? I placed one the other day and haven't heard anything about it since, not even to just pay for it. (I hope the message didn't go to my spam-catcher!)

I got an invoice yesterday, paid it, and got a "your order is shipping" e-mail today. Order turnaround time: a little over 2 weeks. Note: This isn't a complaint - just a report.

Received my package today. The quad-fold board is nice, but will leave a bit of a valley between the quarters. Unfortunately, the box I bought was bent in shipping. Nothing terrible, just one of the side flaps on both the top and bottom pieces bent about one inch along the edge. The cards are light, about what I expected.

I would like to see the Photoparts include for game boards chess-size miniatures designed to denote castles, cities, fortifications, ruins, villages, special locations (crystals?) in plastic.

Please rephrase your question. I don't understand it. The photos for the game board is on the site. Currently protoparts doesn't sell any miniatures, just pawns (as they are listed on the site currently).

I don't see any pawns ... can you point me to them?

Whoops my mistake, no pawns, just cubes.

Strike out the "denote" part -- what I'd like to see are miniature castles, cities, fortifications, ruins, villages, etc...

Not cubes and cones to "represent" these things but something abstacted in a more realistic way -- to stand out from the pack.

I can't imagine that this could possibly be cost effective for ProtoParts, as you're likely the only customer for that mix of things.

Isn't this something that you can get pretty easily out on the net, at least versions of them?

Check RPGNow.Com for some of their paper models. 95% are probably in PDF format and could theoretically be scaled down to a tiny size if you wanted to. I personally think you are best off printing cardboard squares and cutting them out.

Alternately, you can trivially get tiny houses (Monopoly style) and chess rooks. There are also small pewter castle models available through some pewter dealers. The models aren't game components, they are decorative. I see them in New Age stores sometimes.
