Hello Experts 8) ,



Came across this item a few days ago and can not find any info about it. I see that Guido bid early, but has backed off. I would like to know the rarity or potential value of such an item. If any of you are interested, then I will not bid, as I can not afford the level of investment some of you are willing to make :wink:  :mrgreen:



Please let me know what you know:


** expired eBay auction **


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

Typically $35-50 for a decent copy (as I suspect the current high bidder is aware ;)), but does go lower than that from time-to-time so it's worth keeping an eye open if interested...

Has never quite managed to catch enough attention to be boosted to the next level $-wise.

I have seen about 3 or these in the last 6 weeks.  I won a copy in shrink for $32 just before Christmas:




** expired eBay auction **




The one before that went for a similar price.  I seem to recall that there are 3 printings of this but don't know how to distinguish between them.  Anyone want to clear that up for me while we are on the subject?

THANKS - I will keep my eyes open  8O  for a better condition one, but can someone provide a better explanation of what this is?

Is it just another set of rules for miniatures, like Chainmail, as described in the aforementioned listing, or something else?

Mars, did you crack the SW on that puppy?

No I haven't cracked the shrink.  I do have another copy that is open.  It is a set of miniature rules for Classic Warfare.

No luck here yet, Mark.
Hunting for those whilst digging for other stuff (*dodges Alan*) and thus far all I've found are what appears to be two 1st prints.
