Finding good deals
Just Tony
Man, oh man, am I ready to talk about this one.



So I was browsing the sales thread on one of the other GW centric forums when I found an ambiguous post about BFSP Dwarf plastics. Immediately this caught my eye as my brother and I are finally in a place to start expanding our armies for 6th, and that boxed set's minis still fit perfectly in the game. Anyway, I PM the guy and find out the price is essentially $1 per model, with a few exceptions. My brother is collating a list of our "needs", and exactly how big of a force we're going to want to get, and we'll go from there. On the same site I found a sales thread that had roughly a playable 2,000 points Dark Elf army for $100. My brother's not exactly motivated to start DE, but at that price, I may have to bite.

The good news is that it seems that there are deals to be had on getting older minis, despite the ridiculously high prices on ebay.

Sounds like you are cleaning up. I am in the middle of selling some of my old empire so that I can re-invest into models like Front Rank or Perry Miniatures so that I can use them in both fantasy and historical. I can confirm the astronomical prices on E-Bay. It is the reason why I really am not buying much new items as most of my fantasy armies that I want to build(Non GW Models excluded) are either already bought or only have a few models that I troll for on E-Bay. BTW which site are you talking about?

I wasn't going to say anything til the deal was finalized, so people'd know what models were left on the Dwarfs stuff. The Dark Elves will probably get got before I have a chance to afford them, sadly...

That's a shame. Good thing that I built up my DE army when I had the chance.

A quick check showed me it's still on his sales thread, so there may be a happy ending after all.

I snatched up a pair of armies this week. 6k dwarfs and around 7k empire for 700 cad combined (so around 400 usd). Four carrying cases, all the books for them and skaven book with some models for them too. Bonus.

God, that's hot. I'm going to have to be severely picky when I get my Empire models, my intent is to do Morgan Bernhardt's Grudgebringers from Shadow of the Horned Rat and Dark Omen as my Empire force.

The dwarfs are closer to 12k in points. Anyone need anything for dwarfs?
 
Just Tony
Depends on what you have and what you want for it. My brother is pretty much only wanting elites and a few war machines, so it'd be along those lines. He also said he'd rather have older Longbeards, and I'm hoping by that he means the older plastics, as my hatred of pewter is legendary. So a list would be nifty.

I decided to move this to the Marketplace forum.

Good Haul! Post an ad in the Marketplace Forum after you figure out what you are willing to part with. I may be interested depending on what the items are. I am very picky as to what I am looking for with my Dwarves.

I found an auction on ebay with 14 or 16 BFSP Miners in it and the Lord from that set, and my brother won it for $17.50 plus $3.75 shipping. This is turning into a good year!


Almost makes up for GW ending sales of square bases...

All the dwarves sold locally. Ended up getting my empire 4k point army for $65 cad, and my dwarf 6k point for - $85 cad. So it worked out to a grand total of $20 in my pocket and two full armies in my cases. Plus a nice carrying case, books, bfsp rulers, templates etc.

Went out and bought an ogre kingdoms army as well. 3200 points, 250 cad with the book.

Apparently my brother got a good deal on a 12 man Long Drong's Pirate Slayers unit as well as a dirt cheap Halfling Hot Pot.

I have not gotten any from this site, but it looks like they are selling them here:

Can't tell if the bevel angle is the same as GW bases. My OCD would get the best of me on that.
