Like Al said, did you have your refund in progress, too?

Always better when stuff doesn't get lost in transit in the first place. :?

Hadn't bothered with the refund.  I kept putting it off.  Just seemed like too much effort.  But I suppose that attitude hides the even poorer service than they claim.  Have just fired a complaint off. :twisted:

Cheap Australian Realms mags.  Although shipping was more than 12x the cost of the mags.

Cheap but unseen. You can't really go wrong for 50p. The last one on eBay sold for £50 IIRC. :D

cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIte ... T&rd=1

If I put it back on eBay I might double my money.


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

Hope you only bought the one item from caliverbooks.  Their dodgy postage pricing means that you need to think about a second mortgage to cover the cost of multiple purchases.

Issue 12 is the last issue and deffinately the rarest of the bunch. Issues 9 and 10 are also hard to come by with issue 10 being a little more expensive than issue 9.

I've been watching prices over the past year and I'd say Issues 1-8 go for about £2-3 an issue, Issue 9 - £25, Issue 10 - £30 and Issue 12 - £40.

The one I got for 50p has had the floorpland cut off of the back cover.

Since you missed #11 from that list, Ian, I'll add it (unwanted/unloved...);

50p BIN seems an "interesting" price for anyone to throw an item on-line, regardless of that fault. :)

Oops. Issue 11 crops up quite frequently. In fact that seller sells them every month or so. He/She is sitting on boxes of the things.

New MERP acquisition...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1

...arrived today and I am v. pleased with the condition, shiny staples gleaming through the shrinkwrap and no creases :D

[am clearly a bit obsessive about this]

Looks like I was the only one willing to take a gamble on this lot . . . still, it has a bunch of highlights: (especially in the area of wargames).



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1



Most notably there is Warlock of Firetop Mountain (Steve Jackson/Games Workshop) still in Shrink.



Also, I have no idea what this is:  1967 book, "Modern Rules" An LWS Production.  



Anyone?

I was SO tempted, looked like some fun stuff in there!  I probably would have bid just to get some goodies to play with except on Wednesday I already bid WAY too much for a set of Gurps books with Bunnies and Burrows (to browse and possibly play) so I'm laying low for a couple of days.

Let us know if there are any "treasures"!

From http://www.intonet.co.uk/~rblack/



London Wargames Section



Published by the London Wargames Section. Miniature Warfare contributors such as John Tunstill, Bish Iwazsko, Carl Reavley etc had a heavy input into these rules, which were used at a number of national conventions during the late-1960s.








That's the only real data I could find, not much help but there is a short list of thier publications on the site as well.

I just won an auction with a copy of "Enworld" thrown in.  Anyone know what this publication is?      :?

I just remembered that I have a number of posters of the cover of the original Shadowrun game book.



   I snagged them one or two per day from the WizKids booth at Gen Con, back in 2001.  They were being given away free...a box of them having been found in the FASA warehouse as that company was going away.



    Suppose they might be worth anything?



    What about a signed Hackmaster poster or two from the same GenCon?

Not sure, but hell if those bloody free GenCon minis seem to be going for a few bucks, you can see if a poster can fetch anything.

Depending on the signature(s) I know I'd pay a couple of bucks for the hackmaster poster, so I'd expect there's someone out there who would probably pay more LOL.
