They're nice enough miniatures but the price is to much for me.

I can never work out who pays that sort of money for painted miniatures. I mean if your building up an army you'd need one hell of a well paid job at 250 quid for 10 minis.

If you're just collecting them I can't imagine you'll ever make a return on them and surely you could get a much better painted (no offence to the painter) individual miniature for that sort of money that would be a real collectors piece.

Never forget the 2003 Ebay sale of three FOW tanks for $600 USD plus lol…. Never forget that.

Wow, Front Rank makes great figs but that is way more than I would pay for painted lead.

private listing – bidders' identities protected

that always make's me highly suspicious, the guys feedback seems to come from a very limited circle of respondants too,

That thought struck me too, my immediate thought was that someone has a money laundering setup going.

SECURITY MINISTER CRITTER Inactive Member18 Aug 2012 9:59 a.m. PST

I got nothing.
Buff you want to launder money? Set up an art or renaissance fair, and I can show you how.

Look at this!

Something just isn't quite right here, always protected bidders and such high bids!

They are based.

Save the seller as a favorite so you can get back to his auctions.

Right-click and save the pics of the figures.

Check future auctions to see if it is the same things he is selling over and over using the same pic.

If it is – I'd imagine that's a pretty compelling indicator it IS money laundering.

Very suspicious… Private bidder?
