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.
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)
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.
De Bellis Multitudinis — DBM is the “advanced” version of DBA, I guess, and replaced WRG 7th edition for large scale miniatures battles.
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.
AD&D trading cards 1992 factory set — Hundreds of cards with art of varying quality, all statted out for 2e AD&D.
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.

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”.
The Osprey Elite book on the classical era 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
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.

36. Vintage Crossbows and Catapults components: 2 catapults and two crossbows, rubber bands needed
A bunch of 1/32 firemen I was going to use as fire giants at some point.
