Well at least you have HPBs...nothing in NY State even remotely like them.  We have to buy stuff from people like...YOU!  :lol:   Not that that is a bad thing...

Buying from Mike is as close to a sure thing as you can get and his prices are very competitive.
And MUCH better than many large scale e-Bay sellers.
Would be better if it did not have to be shipped at all, since no one can control what other folks do.

Luckily I get to pick things from him up in person.... 8)
Just bought a nice stack of stuff from him this past weekend.
FREE pickup... :lol:

Thanks ... last time I checked they had an old RoleMaster Character Folio that appeared unused along with one other RoleMaster item ... probably also in the $6.95 range.  If I was certain that there would be any takers here, I would have picked them up, but I suppose I could check for them again on Wednesday when I stop the local HPB again.

Also, if it makes any difference, I will probably not keep the copy of the MERP 2nd Ed softcover I picked up earlier as I managed a Collector's Edition hardback in near mint condition last year from my local HPB for around $12.50.

I've pulled together enough non-TSR (mostly) stuff for another group picture!

Image

Acquisition was a mix of ebay, trades here, trades elsewhere, and general scouring of the web.

Some notes:

Warpstone - that's issues 3-10 - anyone have 1-2 they want to part with? :).  I haven't added this much to my WFRP collection in a long time, and with the issues of Hogwash from the last batch of items, I'm nearing completion!

Varanae items - I was scooped on the announcement of finding these, but I was able to get my copies, and let a couple friends know.  In case anyone missed it, Dragons and Monstrum1 seem to still be available at http://www.varanae.com

Mythworld - this is another find direct from a source.  If anyone else would like a copy, PM me and I'll put you in touch.  I forgot to take a pic of the separate modules, but those are available too.

Stark Raving Mad - I may have a shot at actually completing my Pagan collection.  Never would have thought that would happen.

Lands Of Adventure - in some ways, my favorite item in the group.  I bought it largely for the great Bill Willingham cover.  It was NIS (at the original 1983 price!) but I couldn't resist opening it to check out the original dice.  I know the shrink collectors cringe, but I love doing that!

And a little self promotion - I now have spares of Warpstone 7, Casalana, and the Imagine Special that I would trade/sell.  PM me if interested.

Ooh. Tradervale is the gem amongst that lot. And that one looks sweet.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Nice group pic. :)

Not at the prices you paid. ;) I spotted the later auctions before you posted here, then checked back to that seller's history...
Pick up those first two for £50 each and you're doing well, but don't forget #0 while you're at it!

+1 (not being a CoC completionist!)

#7 is the only relatively common issue in the single digits, thanks to a problem with the printer. The "poor copies" were then given away at cons rather than pulped - perhaps worth a check to see whether you can see any differences between your two before you sell one. ;)

Did you grab the modules?  I think he was working on an update of the rules too.

I've got a list up here:

I definitely love these kind of group pictures! Most of us should do that. I remember some pictures from Mars as well, or in the "who has the biggest one" thread as well (with Bill's RPG wall). Always pleasant to see this :)
Thanks!

I will try to make a picture of my CoC collection.

The artwork is just perfect. One of my favorite FGU games too.

Nice photo... lots of goodies!  I like to see collections coming together :)


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

That's about the only issue I own.  I keep hanging on to it thinking I will buy a collection of the others and it will be missing.

I'd be happy to even see them up for sale at all, and then worry about price.  The last ones I recall seeing went much lower than I expected.


beasterbrook wrote:Hmm.. The "Special Ed" one.. or am I missing one..


I hope he meant the special, otherwise there's one I don't even know about!

Nah, sell it to me!

The Tradervale is indeed nearly perfect.

Well, those two have gone for ~£70 each several times, as well. ;)
150 copies was not exactly a large print run.

Don't worry: no repeat of Imagine #31. Presuming Warpstone #30 ever sees the light of day, that is. :?

Thanks, Brette. Good to hear that's still sounding positive, even if in a holding position for a long time.

No news for the longer term, though? (Well, aside from a mass collation if possible as was hinted on the fora IIRC).
