Stuff to buy or trade


These things are all available. I will trade for minis (older preferred, condition not too important, mainly interested in Heritage, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Minifigs, and other 1970s-1980s stuff) or sell them if you really want them.

I’ve got some rules, and minis, I’ll probably never use. Make me an offer. I’ll trade for Grenadier, Ral Partha, Heritage, Citadel, or Minifigs figures, and B/X, Labyrinth Lord, S&W, and LotFP stuff (other old minis probably welcome too).

I would also take money, of course. Postage on most things will be around $2.50 for most of the books (media mail) and more for the boxed stuff, but the minis being plastic can be shipped comparatively cheaply. The list below is not numbered consecutively, since this is a subset of a larger list which included a bunch of history books and sci-fi/fantasy zines. (I’ll list them separately if there is interest.)

Click to enlarge the pics. Not all these pics are in good focus, sorry.

Games

The boxed games will probably be a bit of a hassle to ship. If you just want some of the components from them, we can probably work that out too — especially if you want all or most of the minis in the game or whatever. Check the BoardGameGeek website for details about components. These generally have all the original components, though I may have scavenged for the dice for D&D.

The Ring of Rule rules book, 2nd ed. (2004) (wargame rules similar to Warhammer published by Russian minis company Zvedza), with Legion of the Damned supplement rules (undead vs. humans)

RingOfRule-1
Revenge (1992) (Medieval wargames rules for miniatures, including naval and siege rules)

Revenger-1
4. War Games Rules 3000BC-1485AD, 7th ed. aka WRG 7th (1992)

WGR-7

De Bellis Antiquitatis, version 1.1 — I wrote in the version 1.2 ammendments (though I left the original wording intact, so you can try either version). I have the 2.0 version and am more used to that, but this version is actually what the online version of DBA is based on, for what it’s worth. In any event it is a great, fast wargame.

DBA

De Bellis Multitudinis — DBM is the “advanced” version of DBA, I guess, and replaced WRG 7th edition for large scale miniatures battles.

DBM

Beowulf — movie tie-in boardgame. I picked this up for the minis (a small number of 25mm warriors and a set of really nice looking longships and shore forts that I thought I might swipe for Man-o-War, but I’ve never gotten around to it.

Beowulf

AD&D trading cards 1992 factory set — Hundreds of cards with art of varying quality, all statted out for 2e AD&D.

ADDCards1992More AD&D trading cards — a sealed box that you would put on the check-out counter. 36 sealed packs of 16 cards each, plus a few loose packs.

ADDCards1992-more
29. Lord of the Rings Risk, Trilogy edition

LOTR-Risk
Warhammer (Fantasy Battles)  rulebook. Digest-sized edition from the 2006 boxed set.  Complete rules, this is does not identify the edition but I’d guess 7th?  It was the goblins vs. dwarfs set.

WHFB-rules

 

 

 

 

BattleBall — Milton Bradley’s rip-off of BloodBowl, I guess. The minis are actually quite nice — these are comparable to the HeroScape stuff they released around the same time. I thought I might use the footballers as thugs, guards, and robots in a sci-fi game, but never did. I did swipe all the polyhedrals from the game except the football-shaped d6; otherwise this game is complete.

Books

Three interesting handbooks on warfare and tactics from the 17th century.  They are comb-bound:

The souldier’s accidence / Gervase Markham. Photocopy edition of the 1635 book, produced by “Falconwood Press”; The souldier’s grammar / Gervase Markham. Photocopy edition of the 1639 book, produced by “Falconwood Press” ; Enchiridion of fortification / Richard Royston. Photocopy edition of the 1645 book, produced by “Falconwood Press”.

FalconwoodPress-2

Here’s a look inside — as you can see, these are clean photocopies, but in some cases the margin is pretty cut pretty close. As far as I can tell there is no lost text though.

The Osprey Elite book on the classical era Persians

Osprey-Persians

A small collection of maps of Korea, including a large National Geographic map (with some creases separating) and a lot of smaller maps detailing US troop movements in the Korean War

KoreaMaps-1 KoreaMaps-2

 

Miniatures

Buck Rogers! — two bags of pieces which apprently were made for the Buck Rogers board game. I only have the officers (firing twin blasters) and troopers (with rifles). The officers are a little taller than the troopers and look 25mm scale; the troopers are 1/72 or 2omm scale.

BuckRogers-1BuckRogers-2

Weapons & Warriors game components: 2 naval cannon + 24 plastic balls (ammo)

36. Vintage Crossbows and Catapults components: 2 catapults and two crossbows, rubber bands needed


Revel 30 Years War artillery(1/72) (just 6 crew & 1 cannon from the set)


17 ESCI Muslim warriors (1/72)


33 plastic pirates (54mm or 1/32 scale) Good targets for the W&W cannon above

A bunch of 1/32 firemen I was going to use as fire giants at some point.

Firmen-2Firemen-1
Spare IMEX Civil War, 1/72 infantry and artillery crew (the artillery itself lacks wheels as I used them for chariotry)

15 Warriors of Chaos from the Battlemasters game (28mm scale hard plastic)

Six Reaper orcs.
Two Cossacks, I think; either Old Glory or Foundry.
 More to come!

  1. […] You’d be better off looking at this listing, which is a page dedicated to stuff I want to unload. I’ve got some rules, and minis, […]

  2. […] My wife says that I will never make it to level 7, but thinks my daughter can get there (I assume level 8 is off limits). If you’d like to make your prediction about how deep I’ll get before becoming lodged, freaking out, or fleeing in panic, leave a comment. The correct answer (or a randomly selected correct answer if I get more than one) will win their choice* of fabulous prizes from my collection of stuff I’m trying to get rid of. […]
