I am baffled??? A bunch of stuff and you don't really know what it is really. It is close to a hundred for 500 figs.
Maybe I am being too critical? One man's trash is another man's treasure.
But you don't know if you can get an army out of it and it is not one period so you could get 89 AWI Indians and 234 French cav and 39 Finish artillery men and 63 British Napoleonic riflemen.
Just seems crazy to me.
At least if you knew you could make sense of it and have a plan
.20 a fig is good but not when you are getting a little of this and a little of that and then you must sort the whole thing.
It seems crazy to me

I might have bid on it before it got that high.
I like buying mixed lots, you get things you like that you would have never gotten before and things you didn't know were out there mixed in with the good and the bad.
plus I do not play historic's so I would be free to use them as I feel free even if they were not meant to go togeather.

While that price is pushing the envelope, I have won some auctions similar to it that have been great buys. Ya pays ya money ya takes ya chances.

This is for those who are undecided about what their next project will be.

For someone who just likes collecting figures and painting them it might not be a bad deal. Maybe he intends swapping them out amongst his friends?

Shipping killed it for me.

I got there too late. The bidding has ended and someone else has won the auction. I did send in a request to purchase the cutting board on which the photos were taken. I hope that wasn't included in the original auction.
