Ah, damn, tough break there.  That last post would only have a chance of making sense if it came out the way I meant it to:  right after Steven's.

It's got a fairly high retail price and is a limited edition of 1000.  It is, however, still available in stores.

[Edit:  Me wrong.  See a later post that corrects me.]

These Grenadier minis from an IStoleIt in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, look to be part of some old gamers collection:

Cap'n Crunch boardgame!  I have resisted bidding on it so far.

The auction description says

Are you mighty enough to lead the valiant Cap'n against the extra scary robotic  Soggmaster and his really gross looking Soggie minions.  It's like playing some sort of Jack Sparrow versus Cthulhu type thing, except for children, and involving breakfast cereal :)

That is an interesting battlemat!  The second picture's terrible, though: I can't make out what I'm supposed to be looking at.  I've seen some Chessex mats before, and thought they were well-made, but never seen one like that.  

Anyway, not for me.  How could I respect myself if I snatched it away from you, GYG?  8)

That's the first one I have seen on Ebay.



Given that it is a Group One product, it should net a good price.



As a gaming item, it is dog vomit...it wouldn't be unfair to call it "retarded," but that would be unfair to retarded people.  But then a lot of the classic treasures were not very good gaming items.



Ironhoof Highlands is 1-5 "Demand Your Money Back" on my 30 point rating scale.  (Which is not so much a rating of collectibility as of usefulness.)



If you haven't seen it...the cover is the best part of the module.  Seriously.  Possibly...the cover might be rivaled by a piece of interior art that shows an ancient monolith with Space Invaders carved on it.



Still...highly collectible.   8O



PS...how do you spell "collectible?"   :scratch:

Bleh...to each his own I guess.  Never liked any Group One artwork.  I probably could have done better fingerpainting in second grade.

The best artwork for a Group One item IMHO was for the Traveller supplement Theta Borealis Sector.  The cover was completely black.  :wink:

I don't think Mark is saying that he likes the artwork at all.  He's meerly indicating that the supplement is so awful that the crappy cover artwork is by far the best part of it. :wink:

Hmmm....must have missed the sarcasm...and the italics indicating sarcasm.  :spiderman:

Hey Mark...can you tone down the sarcasm?  There is so much of it that it has completely thrown me off and I think you are 100% serious about everything now.  PDT_Armataz_01_12

Still would not part with mine no matter how high this one goes, and I think this maybe the 3rd one I've seen in the past couple years.
