We're all thinkin' it…so whatcha bringin to the flea? I'm going to be having a reality check…too many boxes of figs sitting in the game room closet. I'll be bringing painted armies…a beautiful 28mm Classical Indian army that I couldn't afford when I bought it, 15mm Seljuk Turks, probably some Crusaders to go with them, may have to part with my 15mm SYW Prussians and French, some 1970s and 80s Soviet, US and Brit microarmor, Russian Napoleonic era 1/1200 sailing ships, AQoTMF stuff, a few board games, 15mm painted Confederate infantry, sealed Dreadfleet game, 15mm WW2 Brit tanks and stuff…just for starters.

Looking to buy…anything shiny that I don't already have…of course. Painted 10mm Union and Confederates would be nice, then I could sell my 15mm Union stuff too.

How about you?

As I'm getting used to my new touch-screen laptop…very sensitive to the touch, hence the double message/double message!

wakenney17 Jun 2017 3:48 p.m. PST

AQoTMF, ehh? Anything in particular?

For me, I'm bring two children looking to buy Saga warbands!

Jeigheff17 Jun 2017 3:52 p.m. PST

If I could make it, I'd bring myself and cash!

I've got two of the starter sets of Martian Front stuff, plus extra tanks, some extra infantry packs…not sure off the top of my head. I can take a look tonight and post it later. Yeah, it's great having kids…I used mine as an excuse to jump into Congo! with both feet…lol! Wink wink, nudge nudge.

Jeff, too bad you can't make it! It'd be great to see you, after the various horse-trading we've done!

Words,words,words. In other words, books.

I'll never live long enough to read them all,so time to face reality. Mostly history,maybe some military SF. That may have to wait for Sunday.

I'll be looking for HaT Industries 1/32nd plastic Seven Years War infantry for games using the rules by "All The King's Men."

JeffGrein Supporting Member of TMP17 Jun 2017 5:59 p.m. PST

Looking for:

HaT 1/32 Punic war range – Painted anything or unpainted elephants and cavalry
Aventine 28mm Successors – Painted or unpainted
10mm Old Glory ECW – Painted or unpainted

Painted and unpainted Adler 6mm ACW
Unpainted GW Lord of the Rings
Painted 25mm Ral Partha Zulus
Painted 30mm Thunderbolt Mountain Wood Elves (by Tom Meier)
Unpainted FoW – cheap!!

TSD10117 Jun 2017 11:27 p.m. PST

Might bring some 15mm WW2 painted American infantry, German infantry, and Soviet tanks, lots of t-34 76s and some KV-1s. Maybe some odds and ends too. The tanks and American infantry are painted nicely, German infantry are a table top quality.

Would be Sunday only though. I don't see the value in paying $20 USD to sell stuff that would take up 1/5th a table.

Jeigheff18 Jun 2017 6:46 a.m. PST

Thanks, Rob! It would be great to meet you and other TMP people.


Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member18 Jun 2017 7:47 a.m. PST

It's $25 USD now.
