Last couple of times I bid on one of these they topped out above $70.  Merry Christmas to me.  :D




Yes, but are you still looking for the sequel, Hardtractics, about Confederates using tanks at New Gettysburgh?

Yep; very definitely US only and no budging. I could hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth from here, not just from points North... ^^

I think I did well with these two auctions.  Opinions?

I think you did really well, Martin.



Heart of the Sunken Lands has a special place in my heart because I acquired both that module and the Midkemia version of Tulan of the Isles for 99 cents each well before I was a collector.

That definitely seems really low for BotB.  I put in the token $5 bid and was shocked that it lasted all week.  Sure, I know all the bidding is really in the last couple minutes, but still...

Wow...99 cents.  That's fantastic.  Tulan is really going for some high prices.  Way to high for me.

Martin,

Nice job. The BotB was a good deal. The Midkemia book was a steal!

Thanks Bill,

I received the mods last night.  BotB is in "Fine" condition with only slight corner damage and one crease on the spine.  I'm really happy with it.  Sunken Lands is in Very Good shape with more creasing but a flawless map.

I had some nice finds during Xmas time....an OCE white box VF+ small stain, and NM books and reference sheets...anyone help me out with The Armory Hex & Graph paper (worth anything?)...

I was the one that bought the dragonlance mod set, all the mods are just about NM complete with maps...overall I think I did ok (a little less than $5 per book including shipping)...

That is a very good price on the white box.  Excellent find. :)

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

Both Excellent wins.

The Armory Hex and Graph Paper sold for about $10 the last time I saw a copy for sale.

That one was in the SW... but it is Not rare at all.



That OCE listing picture was TERRIBLE!

But at $36.35 (USD) you made a killing on the OCE in the condition you stated above and complete.



MERRY XMASS!

It doesnt have the system map, record sheets, ship markers, or the counters.  But still should have gone for a bit more than that.

Was this a good buy?  I don't recall seeing one, but wasn't actually searching for it either.

The Finieous Treasury for $2.55 from T&T. I couldn't pass it up at that price! Now if I could just get my hands on three more of the Finieous minis, I'll be set.

I think you got a deal there.  That seller's prices are never that low.  Must have been a typo on the price.  Congrats!
