Is there a website that does for miniatures what the Acaeum does for Dungeons and Dragons?  I'm looking for product lists, rarities, historical pricing, etc., on a single recommended website as opposed to a randomly-Googled website.

If you find one please let me know.  There are lots of hobby sites but none that I know of that lists pricing etc.  Stuff of legends for example is a great resource for the info they have, it is rarely updated and has no pricing.

But SOL doesn't track prices and rarity like the Acaeum (or have they changed since I was there last)?

Stuff of Legends is a good source for listings, catalogues etc., but no pricing/value details.

You could also try http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Collectin ... iniatures/

...it's not just restricted to Citadel, and there are some pretty knowledgable collectors who will be happy to advise on valuations.

If it pertains to Heritage stuff ( like Dungeon Dwellers, LoTR, Knights & Magik, etc. ) I could probably give you some decent estimates or ask Dave at http://www.dungeon-dwellers.info as he very knowledgeable on them too ( and his site is a very useful tool, especially once I get off my arse and get him the scans he needs   :oops:  )

I see now that my original post is the equivalent of asking for a website that details every pen-and-paper RPG ever made.

Stuff of Legends and Dungeon-Dwellers are more than adequate.  I like the breadth of SOL and the detailed content of Dungeon-Dwellers.  Both should keep me busy for a good long while.

Thanks.

Yes. I was aware that the owner of the site had passed away (someone has been selling his minis on ebay), but had forgotten the name of the site, and was never aware of the owner's name.

A shame about his passing. The site seemed pretty useful.

Somehow I got a PDF of all the miniatures from his estate and the prices they were asking for them. I wish I had the contact info, I would love to buy some.
