Sponsoring a BrickWarriors Color

Postby royalbrickcustoms » Tue Jun 04, 2013 7:01 pm

Hey all,

I'm thinking of sponsoring a BrickWarriors color.

Would anyone want to sponsor any parts with me?

It costs $250 per part, but I think you can get multiple colors in that same part.

If I can get at least 10 people to sponsor with me it will only cost $25 per person.

Some of the colors and part combination I was thinking of are:

Ranger Helm- Dark Green

Ranger Helm- Olive Green

Ranger Helm- Dark Red

Ranger Helm- Gold

Ranger Helm- Silver

Greatsword- Silver

Vambraces- Silver and Gold

If anyone is interested in sponsoring a color with me please comment below and say so, and which items in which colors.

Thanks,

~RBC

Out of interest, what do you get for your $25?

I.e Do you get actual product, or just the ability to purchase something in a new colour?

How many of each item? I assume that $250 only covers a certain quantity, so that would have to be divided by 10 (or however many people contribute) to figure out just how much product everyone would get for their $25 investment. That seems like it would be good to know upfront :)

I'm not sure if there is a minimum amount of product you receive, but I assume that its $250 worth of parts.

Here is what I calculated:

Armor/helmets (priced at $1.50 each) = 167

Weapons/Accessories (priced at $1.00 each) = 250

So if we had 10 people each person would get about 17 armor/helmet parts and 25 weapons/accessories.

We could always order more. We also get a 35% off discount.

I am VERY interested in this RBC, IF we are able to get enough participants. I do fear, though, that getting 10 people on this may be a stretch.

Still, I will be keeping my eyes on this thread. :D

If we are able to get 10 at $25 each, count me in!

It's just an example, but I am thinking of ordering some Ranger Helms in dark green (They'd be perfect for Lenfald scouts). :)

Alright I'll put you on the list. :)

EDIT: Hey guys here is what Ryan (Thrash) told me regarding color sponsorship (this was sent via email):

Hi Jake,

You can pick a current mold and pretty much any color you want. The price depends on the mold and the color. I have to charge more for bright pink minotaur heads than black demon armor just because the bright pink minotaur heads will leave me with a ton of inventory that is basically useless, while the black demon armor will leave me with pieces that I can easily sell.

Generally speaking, you will have to order a minimum of $250 worth of product from that mold. The upside is that you get the color you want and also get a 35% discount on whatever you order.

Does that sound like something you're interested in?

Thanks!
~Ryan


Hey Ryan (Thrash),

Thanks. Yes possibly. I really want some silver Greatswords and silver Jousting
helms, but I don't want $250 worth. Can I order say $250 worth of Ranger Helms
in three different colors, or only 1? Also it's $250 per sponsored part, right?

I'll talk with some of my buddies on classic-castle and see if they would like
to do a collaborative sponsorship of items. If so, could I order all the parts
and then give you a list of what each individual person wanted and then have you
ship everything to each person instead of shipping it all to me?

Just wondering. :)

~RBC


It's $250 worth per mold per color. So for example, if you want Dark Red Ranger Helms you would also be able to get Dark Red Goblin Helmets, Military Vests, Gladiator Pauldrons, and Hooligan Hats since they are on the same mold as the Ranger Helm.

There are more items on the greatsword mold so it would be a lot more expensive ($800), but you'd have more items to choose from:

Greatsword
Trojan Shield
Gladiator Axe
Skull Crusher
Dervish Blade
Xiphos
Spiked Mace
Cestus
French AR
ABP
AWR
Cobra SMG
German 38
Terrorizer MG
Desert Vulture
Timebomb

The Jousting helmet mold (also $250) has:

Jousting Helmet
Demon Helmet
Demon Armor
Sea People Helmet
Lobster Armor

Yes, I would be happy to ship them to different people. I would just charge you for the cost of the item plus all the shipping to each person.


Thanks!
~Ryan

If I understand correctly, the group would get $250 worth of items at 35% off. If that's the case, I'd be in for vambraces (assuming they are a $250 one and not an $800 one) but probably not for the helms. It would be helpful to know what other pieces are in the vambraces mold too.

Ok, I'll ask Thrash. :)

The Vambraces would unfortunately fall under the $800 variety.

The mold includes:

Vambraces
Greaves
Tower Shield
Demon Shield
Crescent Axe
Nauhe II Sword
Loop Javelin
War Hook
Hammerpick
Beartrap
Other non-castle stuff
