I sent him a message asking if he actually intends to pay this much. No response. Why on earth would anyone do this? What a waste of everyone's time.


To be honest, I'd just cancel the bids. It's someone playing silly buggers.

The thing with LatD is that it's roughly about twice as rare as StD due to the lack of a second print run compared to StD, so it gets naturally inflated as collectors are pretty anal and want both books in a 2 part set.

It is, however a pointless, bloated ego-fest vanity project of a book, but it has some great artwork in it, so it's not entirely worthless. ;)


Ah, none of the art is as good as anything in StD. Yeah, I get the two part set thing, but the fact is there are epic craptons of StD and more than enough LatD to supply the meagre demand from collectors, the price is artificially maintained by a conception of scarcity that has no bearing on the actual availability of the book. Actually scarce Warhammer books would be the 1988 Chapter Approved and maybe Siege.

Well, somebody paid £57 for WHB3E + Armies just now.

But, the same guy who won the auction for Roleplay at £510 also won WHB1E for £50. Unsurprisingly, he hasn't paid either yet (though it's only been a few minutes since the Roleplay auction closed).

Wow. The guy actually paid the £575 for WHFRP and WHB1E combined.

Colour me amazed.

Re: Ebay ridiculousness

Well, I did say on the listing that there was a name in the inside cover.

It's some guy called "T. LEWENS". Maybe I should have marketed that. ULTRA RARE EDITION SIGNED BY T. LEWENS HIMSELF!!! :lol:

I loved reading LatD. Some fantastic ideas and the art is great (in my opinion). Sure StD is a more useful book for actual gaming, but I prefer the background to the actual gaming experience anyhow. :)

bet you're glad he didn't cancel the auction now. DM. £510 wow.... bet it's some banker who has just discovered that he has a guilty conscience about stealing from us plebs for so long.
