Damn! I snagged the last book I was missing yesterday but when I went to add it to the collection I found that the Free RPG Day adventure is missing. Where in the hell are you, adventure? Did you run off and start a campaign by yourself?

WFRP 2e Free RPG
Which one is that? If it's Deathwatch: Final Sanction I've got a spare copy that'll be quite happy to have a new home.

Re: WFRP 2e Free RPG
The one that went missing is an older adventure -- The Pig, the Witch, and Her Lover -- and it's kinda tough to find. I'll poke around the house because it has to be there somewhere.

3A Toys and WWR in general
I wanted to say first off , I REALLY ENJOYED reading your reviews of all the WWR toys you have received up to this point. They are clever , insightful and show some care as well as thought before speaking . Thanks for that!
Having discovered WWR through various fan sites and google searches , I love the universe created By Mr. A. Wood . I have been a robot/A.I. junkie since I was a kid , this has just ignited a new twist on an old interest.
I have to agree that the policy of 3A Toys ( money up front ) is very much like buying GK model kits in that regard . I know the fields are VERY DIFFERENT but the business practices seem to be rearing the ugliness that I am now HATING!!!! There is a reasonable amount of time that should be allowed for custom work , but these guys are now practiced hands at this industry and SHOULD HAVE WORKED OUT THE BUGS. Don't get me wrong , I know there are production delays , cost over runs etc.. that is how business runs some time . BUT , waiting up to and over 6 months to receive product is out of line , especially with no clear communicating from the producers themselves . Bad practices make bad business !
My parting words will be , if your going to do business in a VERY niche market , don't forget that people have a long memory for slow business and bad communication . I thank you and your pocket book for sharing .

Re: 3A Toys and WWR in general
Thanks for the comment, and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the reviews. What sort of experience do you have with garage kits? I've got almost no knowledge of the market, but I'm interested in resin kits and am trying my hand at painting one.

Most bloggers who post sponsored entries are decent enough
to let their minions know that they're shilling product. You sir are the first I've seen to unabashedly shill without fessing up. I have a hard time enjoying your battle grip blog when every post is a commercial. At least let the masses know you are being paid to endorse your sponsors. Shady and unethical are words I don't throw around much, better suited for the Autograph or memorabilia hobbies. But sticking to your current methods is creating an unsavory presence on my RSS feed. You kind sir are about have lost a reader permanently.

Re: Most bloggers who post sponsored entries are decent enough
I wish you had posted this at the battlegrip.com site. I'm sorry you feel this way, but it is not entirely accurate. I mark affiliate posts, and whenever I'm given a toy I mention that in a review.

Most posts at the site -- especially the art, resin, designer, and Japanese vinyl toy posts -- are not affiliate or sponsored posts at all. And I do not post "paid" material at the site.

If you have any more questions or concerns please post at the site.

When you link to Inter-tainment Earth or another sponsor...
adding a disclaimer as a footnote would be most helpful, such as the one I'm qouting from the kind sir at Infinite Hollywood, a toy blog who is upfront about their shillings;

" This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers' own.

Re: When you link to Inter-tainment Earth or another sponsor...
I was using a standardized disclaimer in posts but it was really ugly. I now mark affiliate links -- * -- and have the default disclaimer in the site's master page design. So viewing the actual website shows the disclaimer, but an RSS feed will not. And anyone viewing the site through a newsfeed like at CollectionDX misses out on any embedded links and they cannot make the images larger.

I'm sorry you're unhappy with the approach I use, but it's cleaner and easier to work with.
