Hi all!

So, I am looking to do a little fantasy dungeon crawl, using Battle Valour figures.

Unfortunately, they only sell in basically unit packs or half unit packs, and I just cannot afford all of those figures:(

If I cannot find a way to do this, is there anyone here who would be interested in splitting some of their packs? It would likely end up in someone getting about eight of a bunch of different assorted infantry (several varieties of orcs, skeletons, skaven, etc) as well as between 2 and 3 of a bunch of other larger things (ogres, minotaurs, etc) and some heroes… perfect to fill out an army, or for a role playing or dungeon crawl game!

Is anyone out there interested in this?

Thanks!

How many packs are you thinking about? And, are you in the US?

I AM in the US. And I am thinking… splitting maybe 12-ish halfpacks? So maybe 60 or 70 bucks?

I want to, but don't need to. It's an offer that would suit me, but an iffy time. But if no one takes you up on it soon, I would go in.

Okay, cool, lemme see if anyone chimes in… it isn't a TON of cash, and would result in a nice selection of figures, but you have to have a use for them:)

I would immediately join forces with you, but I live in Germany. So possibly postage is a bit high?

Lord Ashram05 Apr 2017 1:19 p.m. PST

Hah! Maybe, although who knows… I honestly don't know how much postage is!:)

FincasKhalmoril Inactive Member05 Apr 2017 2:06 p.m. PST

Well, if you can find out, I'm willing to test their models and only nee a few for skirmishing. If postage is reasonable and you're interested, please pm me.

Lord Ashram, did you already email Ed at BVG and let him know what you was looking to do and asked if he could work with you right?
IS that what your other post looking for BVG's email addy was all about?

Hey!

Yeah, I did email, but I'm not sure they will be able to do it… I asked at Cold Wars if they sell smaller than half packs and they said no:(. We'll see, maybe they can… Fingers crossed!:)

A reminder to all manufacturers and dealers: If someone asks, "Can I buy….?", you say "Yes, of course!".

Hah!:) Well, it might be a matter of casting or something… who knows:)

Yeah usually one pack = 1 mold. So it taes just as much work to sell a half pack (the metal cost is pretty minor). So half a pack is only 20% cheaper, so they just say no….

You can always check Ebay for bargains on old figs like Demonworld and so on….

Hey all!

Okay, I got impatient and just ordered the figures directly.

So a new question… is anyone interested in buying…

Maybe 5 Orcian characters
A frigian Giant
A few Frigian characters (maybe 4?)
8 war wolves
6 orcian bowmen
1 orcian ogre wrecker
1 frigian ice troll
6 orcian swordsmen with shields
6 orcian beserkers
2 dwarian stone golems
1 legian bullite (Minotaur)

For $47 USD, which is just cost (rounded by a few cents in one direction or the other), plus whatever it is to send it to you?

A nice little assortment of 15mm fantasy figures!
