More so I hate being treated like an idiot :x

Check this latest gem in the classified

viewtopic.php?t=10407

50+ minis all original worth over $1000 (according to the seller) he would be lucky to $40 - $50 is my guess.  I despise when idiots like this fool trying to dupe people on our board into buying some "rare" crap in order to finance his/her trip overseas.

How about a picture?
How about anything?

One post, one lie about the value, one lie about the origin, no details.

Oh well, it is entertaining anyway  :lol:

PS One more week to Gencon Yah!!! :)


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

Saw that thread and guessed the same. $1000 value, but take $500??!! Really...?  :roll:

A fool and their money, I guess. Perhaps its a relative of 'Lisa/Shellie/Coug'

Would it matter if they were all original Games Workshop / Citadel figures? I hear some of those go for insane amounts of money, but I don't collect miniatures and don't pay attention to them.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Guy is either supremely ignorant, or a troll. I'd go with the former until such times as he opens his mouth.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

I'm with Ian on this one - it's possible that this is just someone who doesn't really understand what he has, and no malice is intended.  I'm not saying that's even likely, but just that we should probably consider it.


Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based such as CoC, Runequest, Pendragon and all their related games

well frankly, if blackmoor has looked into it, i would much more respect his opinion on figurines than most other people.

simple as that.

Overvaluing items is always annoying. People think I don't realize that I can get their "collector's item vintage!" 1e PHB for 10 bucks.
