Hi, I'm very interested in getting this game and found a guy that i selling it at an awesome price (miniatures included!) but he is worried about shipping and insisted for a pick up, even if for me it would be impossible to get to him.
Are the miniatures really that fragile? Is the box really that big that it can be a problem to pack it in a secure way?

Yes, the minis are extremely fragile.

Very fragile minis and the unpunched game is a nearly solid mass of heavy cardboard. Many copies have split corners just in shipping. The punched game is going to be only slightly lighter and there's really no safe place to store the minis in the box.

It might be worth pointing out that the Titan miniatures are also completely useless. You won't need them. Most of the game would be played without them, since your Titan is face down in a stack of chits 99% of the time.

The box is a nice compact size, but it is HEAVY and that's the main issue with shipping costs, I guess.

If you are willing to pay to have each mini individually wrapped and the shipping that goes with it, you could offer that as a solution. You could also guarantee that you wouldn't dispute any damage that happens to it during the shipping. IE if there is a way for you to assume the risks, he may be more likely to ship it to you.

Just a thought.
