Hey, I'm working towards self publishing a game I've been working on, on and off for about four years. The game involves miniature spaceships, and contains 18 unique ships. I'm wondering, would you be willing to pay more for quality (Pewter) ships, rather then injected plastic ships? Does it matter at all?

Thanks for your responses!

Cheers, -Sasachaz

To pewter or not...

High quality pewter pieces are very nice. Pewter always seems to show off detail in miniatures better than plastic, and as a gamer I appreciate and have paid for that. However, I have usually done so when purchasing "deluxe" versions of games I know that I enjoy.

Since you are self publishing plastic is almost surely the way to go unless the price you get for the pewter is irresistibly good, or the plastic proofs you get are terrible. The only other reason would be to consider your audience. If you minature spaceships reside in a steampunk world, and you know the people interested in your game would overwhelmingly appreciate pieces that fit that "world", then the extra cost is probably worth it for both you and your audience.
