I am not an expert on all things Games Workshop, but nearly everything they've made has had its price increased substantially (the lone exception I know off the top of my head seems to be the board game Warhammer Quest which routinely sells for around $100 -- its retail was $70. Compare that with the $200 - 300 for some Talisman stuff, and its rather interesting, considering WHQ is far superior, in my opinion, both in play and contents -- WHQ comes with almost 100 miniatures, for example.) Warpstone magazines, especially the early issues, are ungodly expensive, being equivalent to The Dragon #1 or more. So, I'd say they have some value, yes, but how much I don't know since I've not actually looked for them... but a guess would put them at $15+ which isn't bad.

And, Games Workshop closed their forums, but here is one that may be of better help.

You see folks, this is another outstanding example of the amazing expertise available at the Acaeum!  Most helpful.  Thank you and Merry Christmas!

WHQ sells on ebay for around $300 in my recent experience.

In my experience too; I've been looking for a affordable (= less than $150) set without success.


Shanghai fun & friends!

Sorry about that. Recent prices are probably higher -- I have not actively been monitoring Warhammer Quest for nearly two years (though I do an occasional look for the expansions) so I was basing off my last-known. A shame (keeps people from starting at an affordable price,) but also a good thing (for resellers.) Like I said, I am not a Games Workshop expert -- I just like the majority of the stuff I've played they released, even Chainsaw Warrior and Dungeonquest.

Hope it was useful, anyway. The market is a fluctuating place; one must always keep their eyes open...

On the subject of Warhammer and Games Workshop, I just picked up copies of War and Death, and Fire and Blood for $7 a pop.

More commonly known to the UK D&D world as Integrated Games' Complete Dungeon Master Series Sets 1 through 4, rewritten for Warhammer.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

That's a great find.  Did you mean the 2nd Alpha with the monster manual pages, by the way? What's the condition like?

Mike.




No, it is definately a 3rd alpha. Condition is Good/Very Good with some cover wear, but overall pretty good.

I didn't have one, so for me it was great find outside ebay, where unless you have a knowledgable seller, printing info is generally scarce or wrong.

I was more excited about finding something outside ebay.

Same place had about six Strategy & Tactics with game...on first glance I was thinking "holy sh.t, I hit the jackpot!" Then I noticed the price sticker at $20-25 each...bummer.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I was quite chuffed with this:

...although you can also get the same Gygax article reprinted in one of the later Dungeon magazines (forget which one).

Somebody got a good deal on this:

Unfortunately, I wanted a slightly better deal and came second :(

I was trying to get a good deal on that, too, in the last ten seconds, but the amount kept inching up past my bids as I was trying to place them.  The only thing in my mind was the questionable condition.



I should've asked the seller to post a picture before hand because based on the condition of the DMG he had, the module may not have been worth it, even at that price.



Mike.

Dammit, I had that on my watch list and completely forgot about it. We'll know soon enough to the condition of it it because the winning bidder is "jastner" or otherwise known as the buying ID for Intelligator.  He'll have it in his store soon enough at 4 times that price.  :roll:

Hello,



I recently picked up an OCE (a fun-find for me!), and found a Dragon Magazine insert inside... I've never seen one in sets pictured on ebay.  I wonder if they were/are common, or if I've found a curiosity, or even something rare?



Much obliged for any info,

David

There are a few Dragon Magazine advertisement sheets.  I would guess that it didn't originally arrive in the white box.  I have an early one that came with an advertisement sheet pack during the transition from Strategic Review to The Dragon:

I believe there is a different ad that came with some of the Basic D&D boxed sets as well.  I believe these ones are either greenish or maroonish in colour.
