Looks like a reasonable price for the lot...

Well these are wargames so it was the thing to do.

I gotta say, the ar*e really seams to have fallen out of the JG market these days on eBay. Maybe it's a case that prices are down right across the board, or maybe I just have jaded recollections of how much things used to be worth when I was building my collection. I don't know.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

Good time to buy then.

Hah! Someone should've bought that unwanted Imperial Infantry Squad at under the $20 which was being asked, and resold for $50.
Or maybe they did...? ;)

Seriously, though, there have been some fairly strong JG prices amongst the weaker ones in recent months. None of the following are shabby;

(heh; variant copies still in SW with the extra map can be sourced at ~$50, so I don't know what that was about...)

Aaron's not doing too badly, is he? :)
Buying "less expensively", as ever, is a matter of patience and timing for anything not overly rare.

Curious as to the end price on

I don't know how NKG sell at those prices. For the most part, I can only assume it's newbies who know no better, and the money to burn (unless there's something more incidious going on, which I doubt.)  I can understand the Treasure Trove auction, but with NKG, the business model is, set the price sky high and wait for a muppet no matter how long it takes. Their listings are pennies after all, and I doubt their use of stock photos, their caveats and their honest descriptions have changed much in the past few years.

I need to give my collection a trim.

Those prices have some lunacy involved. I have stacks and stacks of The Dungeoneer's Compendium in SW and have been selling them at $9.99 a pop for the last few years.  Yes, muppet describes the buyer in a lot of these situations.

More power to him for shooting high, but last time I bought from the ebay NK they sold bogus copies of Tekumel stuff (though the price was cheap).

I picked up some dubious Tekumel stuff from NKG a while back, but I put it down to either them reprinting the stuff because they had the rights to do so (the old Lou Zocchi gambit), or the possibility that they had inadvertently bought a box load of them off of a seller in bulk. Whilst some of the staff appear to have questionable integrity when it comes to honestly describing what they are selling, and they still have a problem with 'stock photos' not accurately representing big price tag items, Aaron has always struck me as the honest sort, trying to scale a business with a bunch of staff just doing an admin job for the wages. You can't watch what your staff do all the time. The measure of a business really has to come down to how they address issues when a customer is not happy. To that end, I don't read too many complaints about NKG, when compared to some of the other online retailers and/or big name eBay resellers.

I certainly still trawl through the weekly e-mail looking for bargains, but their prices really have gone through the roof this last year or so. There was a time when NKG seemed to be a volume reseller, relying on turnover to bring in the profit. Now it seems to be more about high profit margins and that of course destroys the volume sales. Good if you can sustain it, but very few companies can in such a niche market acting solely as the middle man.

Maybe what NKG need is a partnership/sponsorship deal with writers of quality to bring 'NKG Exclusives' to the market, similar to Netflix and House of Cards (Not a bad adaption IMO).
