Re: Ebay ridiculousness

I recently purchased some "cards" which had been cut out of a White Dwarf and mounted on card to strengthen them. I paid £8.99 for them.

I would probably have bought the original magazine instead, if it was available, but I couldn't find it anywhere on eBay. Also, I quite liked the fact that the guy had done the hard work for me anyway (cutting and gluing to card), which I would not have been willing to do myself (I hate crafty stuff -- I'm a gamer, not a 'hobbyist'), so I didn't mind handing over the extra pounds.

Now this:

Lady McDeath, BIN 21,94 Euro, from China. Is it a counterfeit? Recast?

Re: Ebay ridiculousness

Whatever it is I tried to buy it and couldn't because it seems to be impossible to use Paypal to buy something from China (or at least that's how I read the 'this payment method is not accepted' message from ebay). It looked fairly legit to me in the photo, and, as as Lady McDeath is one of only four named characters from that scenario I've yet to get my hands on, I felt it was worth the risk. I guess I'll never know now, ho hum!

Thanks for the link, Ardyer.

Nice to see this 'legendary' model painted.

£55.00 for White Dwarf 137? "With templates of Fantasy Townhouse"? For that much I'd want the actual one built by Dave Andrews/Phil Lewis, thanks.

Re: Ebay ridiculousness

This is the most ridiculous thing I've seen on eBay for a while:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/HEROQUEST-USA- ... 2767087786

I mean, it's exceptionally rare to find all these in one place, in that condition, but, you could buy a new car for that price!
