Incidentally I've used a few Infinity boards and props for battle-maps.

Miniatures are kind of like Pringles: One is not enough!  ;D

When ordering miniatures (or anything else) from a European store and shipping to a North American address, is there any kind of import tax imposed, or other unusual fees?

Everyone encounters them, most of the time it's added into the price you're paying when you order the item. You cannot avoid paying for items to clear customs into or out of a country.

Ah... just clarified with my SO who sends and receives stuff from EU, Import taxes and such only hit when coming into the US when it's over $600 or so. (I was going off her shipping TO the EU, which has a much lower threshold for Imports).

Every time I order dice or anything I get hit by that crap. 21% VAT and at least twice that in 'administrative fees'. CGL managed to avoid that on my hoodies and on my dice, thank Saeletra.

The 'Value Added Tax' always sounded to me like the politicians were saying, "We're going to say that this is worth more than it is, just so that we can charge you more tax for it!"

Thanks for the suggestions!  :)
I have some of them - and they do work, we use Roll20 quite a bit so I was looking for low effort maps that could be quickly pulled in for various scenarios. There are some tiles I've picked up from the Market, but I'd still buy a digital resource put out by catalyst for maps from various runs over the years.  ;)
Scanning or taking screenshots is doable, just time consuming.

I have some of the Iron Wind Metals minis - they are dated, but still nice - the deckers for example look they came out of the 80s promo video!  ;D

I bought a whole bunch two years ago but still haven't gotten around to painting any. Got the IC.
