Like the topic says

Hmm. Selling? Probably historical 54mm, SF 28mm, 28mm resin terrain (Hovels, I think) and the usual paper--books, rules and magazines--I should never have bought in the first place.

Buying I'm not so sure. 10mm ACW? 5/6mm armor for the Western Desert? Maybe some stray 1/72 WWII for 1944 France, but the late start is a problem for that one: it's something they might actually sell in the Dealers Hall.

But the glory of the flea market is that it always has something I need that I didn't know I was looking for.

I'll be looking for 28mm ECW painted and unpainted and 15mm Renaissance Muscovites and Cossacks (which I am not holding my breath for)

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2018 7:34 a.m. PST

I'll be looking for Jacobite Highlanders, but only if they're cheap.
"We're frugal, Laddie. Never call us cheap!"
(Maybe some Gubmint Troops too, because you have to have Bad Guys.)
I had 48 of them for Moore's Creek Bridge (I know, I know), and absolutely need more.

And I will just sit here drooling in the corner, anticipating the vernal emergence of TreeGirl and her cookies!

TSD10102 Feb 2018 1:40 p.m. PST

Maybe its time to start dumping my FoW, since interest has died out.

DF200902 Feb 2018 6:52 p.m. PST

So, not exactly sure what I'm bringing to sell since I have a basement full of stuff that I had the best intentions of painting and playing but, well you know- you guys are WarGamers too… Will have terrain, Magic cards, GW bits,bits, and more bits. Odd and ends Figs from various games,time periods, and systems. Oh yeah- still have 1 or 2 copies of Risk left! (wasn't a big hit at last show.)
Looking for ships for X-wing game, older RPG books and GW Figs from their side games like Mordheim, NecroMunda, and SpaceHulk. Always willing to do trades also.

Cheers, -D.Fischer II-

Always looking for terrain 15-28-40mm, getting interested in Franco-Prussian, Austrian-Prussian in 15 mm. and lastly looking for Spanish-American War figures in 28 mm……

snurl1 Inactive Member05 Feb 2018 5:05 a.m. PST

Are there rules against selling beer in the flea market?

zoneofcontrol Inactive Member05 Feb 2018 6:12 a.m. PST

"Are there rules against selling beer in the flea market?"

Only if you get caught. Especially if you get caught by HMGS, Inc., the hotel, the police, the State Police, the PLCB (PA Liquor Control Board).

You could always try:
"Hey you… buddy; you want to buy some paint? I've got these special 12 oz., pop-top cans of "paint" under my table. They could be yours for the right price."

Nah, not paint-- paint _stripper_.
Beer is better as a BYOB thing to enjoy and share with yer mates.

snurl1 Inactive Member06 Feb 2018 6:19 a.m. PST

Dash it all. Another get rich quick scheme foiled again.

DF200907 Feb 2018 12:52 p.m. PST

I by NO means was suggesting anyone SELL beer anywhere at the Con. I was hinting that someone BUY a beer (from the Host) for a hard working staff member… Ya know, maybe that Handsome, polite guy that may be running Wally's Basement who is always helpful and caring… just sayin'…

masm611008 Feb 2018 5:21 a.m. PST

Looking for decently painted (and correct) 15mm ACW troops. I reserve the right to determine decently painted. :-)

Poniatowski Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member23 Feb 2018 5:36 a.m. PST

As always….. looking for:
LOTR miniatures (GW)
Mordhiem Miniatures (GW)

I am actually selling stuff this year!!! Found some more stuff I won't ever be using…. I'll update as I put it together.

I am also dumping my entire Dungeons and dragons collection…. pretty much a LOT of stuff…. Maybe Gamma World too…. Elf Quest… Cleaning RPG house so to speak….

I am considering dumping my LOTR RPG (ICE) stuff too.

If interested, let me know in advance.. it is a LOT of stuff.

@Dennis….. I will go through my X-wing ships… you go through your scenery please….

Daribuck Supporting Member of TMP26 Feb 2018 10:40 a.m. PST

Selling? if I get off my ass, catalog and price everything, and manage to snag a table, I will be selling a lot of unpainted fantasy figures in 28mm. (Why do we even have Fantasy a Hmgs conventions… Why do I have ANY fantasy figures? heh heh) Plus anything else that I can find larger than 15mm. (It takes up TOO much room!)

Buying? Almost anything I can find in 5-6mm (which usually isn't that much) excluding the 20th century… Have TONS of that…) I am ESPECIALLY looking for 5-6mm Armies from ASIA basically ANY period, as I have none. (China, Japan, India, Khmer, Mongols, Persians, Afghans etc…) Also Sci Fi stuff in 5-6mm,.

See you all there!


Personal logo enfant perdus Supporting Member of TMP26 Feb 2018 2:02 p.m. PST

Mostly books. So many books.

Probably some modest lots of minis: unpainted 25mm ACW (OG), 28mm Crimean (Great War Mins.), 15mm WWII French (QC/19thC.)

Prints and lithographs. If you want some nice affordable stuff to deck your halls, I'll have a huge selection of plates by the Company of Military Historians. Pricier but still affordable will be some late 19thC lithographs of the Imperial German Army, 19thC lithos by H.A. Ogden of the US Army, hand colored and signed prints by Eugene Leliepvre, and maybe some Vernets. I'd love to bring some original WWI and WWII posters to sell, but they are too big for Wally's basement, as per the agreement.

NB I'm not a dealer, just a collector who has a mountain of lead and another one of paper. Sometimes you gotta let go.

Hope to see you all Saturday PM!

masm611028 Feb 2018 8:07 a.m. PST

Poniatowski Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member05 Mar 2018 7:14 a.m. PST

I am still not seeing anyone listing that they are selling Mordheim or LOTR miniatures yet!!! Clean out those closets…. LOL!

Crap, I needed to add…. it is HMGS after all….
I am always looking for 15mm Napoleonics and 15mm WW1.

I am also considering some Historical skirmish games like SAGA, etc…

Moe the Great Inactive Member05 Mar 2018 5:42 p.m. PST

Dan, you know I got your hookup. LOTR

historygamer06 Mar 2018 12:17 p.m. PST

Looking for some decently painted 15mmACW OG or BH troops.

Poniatowski Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member07 Mar 2018 11:13 a.m. PST

Moe, I love you! I will remember to bring something for auction this year and for the raffle again!

Does FoW still bring decent bids for painted stuff?

Yankees Supporting Member of TMP07 Mar 2018 1:52 p.m. PST

Does anyone have a copy of Valley games

Republic of Rome

rmcaras Supporting Member of TMP07 Mar 2018 11:38 p.m. PST

Hey Dan, I know of a painting service out of Kyiv, Ukraine that can supply you with painted 15mm ACW and Napoleonics!

Otherwise, I'll have several 15mm collections: Crusades, ECW, FFL including the old AirFix fort, nicely finished. Also a 28mm Seleucid army….and Many More (the recording artist that is mentioned on every musical. CD commercial)….

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP08 Mar 2018 2:10 a.m. PST

If I can get a table, I have painted 25/28mm AWI armies. British, Loyalist, Hessians and Yankees.

Poniatowski Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member09 Mar 2018 11:11 a.m. PST

@rmcaras… who do you think does all of my painting of everything smaller than 25mm?

What Crusade stuff do you have? I have recently ventured into By Fire and Sword and have also peeked interest in the Crusades….

Stepman309 Mar 2018 3:46 p.m. PST

Looking for 28mm Cold War era Russians and US troops especially from Mongrel Miniatures…And 1/50 scale Vehicles of the same…

Personal logo capncarp Supporting Member of TMP09 Mar 2018 4:45 p.m. PST

While not specifically a miniatures item, to anyone running a Twilight:2000 Poland campaign: I have a small framed rendering of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa. This could be useful as a prop/atmosphere-setting item. Just saying….

TSD10110 Mar 2018 9:05 a.m. PST

I will be selling a lot of unpainted fantasy figures in 28mm.

You have my attention. Any larger monsters?

TRUgamer10 Mar 2018 9:36 a.m. PST

What make are your AWI figures? I'm interested in well painted Perry's.


Poniatowski Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member12 Mar 2018 4:33 a.m. PST

OK.. I started digging stuff out…. and picking stuff up.

A friend is unloading some 90's era 40k stuff….

30+ Plastic orcs and some lead ones along with snotlings?

A 12 man unit of Tau

Catachan jungle fighters, 2 squads of the original lead ones and some plastic ones and some personalities in lead.

The box set of original Steel Legion

Some storm troopers and Casrkin original box set…

If anyone is interested .. I have 4 or so units of the new plastic Cadians with both plastic and older metal command. I am just undecided on selling them or not.

I'll also have other stuff… I just have to go through my stuff to look.

Plastics will go at $1 USD each I am thinking and lead a tad more. The Karskins are pretty hot, so they will be more, but reasonable and negotiable… it is the flea market after all.

Moe the Great Inactive Member15 Mar 2018 5:46 p.m. PST

Snotlings? How many?

Poniatowski Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member19 Mar 2018 7:06 a.m. PST

LOL!!! You should have asked at the show.. just seeing this now….
