Buying Bulk metal minis

Post by Tholden » Mon Jul 03, 2017 2:27 am

Howdy, All

What would be a fair price to buy bulk metal minis?
By the pound?
By the gram?

Thanks

It would depend. Are you buying them broken up to melt down or are you just buying a lot of minis to paint and use in bulk. If the former, by the lb, if the latter, it would depend on the mini, rarity, retail value (if you see someone on here asking retail or slightly lower laugh at them and by from a retailer as you come here for lower price) and condition and likely you will buy by the piece with the discount being on shipping.

There is no right answer to that question.
There is no wrong answer to that question.

There are too many variables to give you a one-shot answer.

The best answer I can offer, generic as it is, would be "what you think they're worth."

If it matters, on ebay I recently sold 2 pounds of bulk metal miniatures that I have been putting in a box o crap for the last 2 years... for $6 plus shipping
2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

If you don't have your Location listed in your User Control Panel, why not take a second and update it? It will let your trading partners know where you are from the beginning.

I use the Unofficial Porkuslime Trading Guidelines - if you have way less refs.. you ship first.

Folks I am awaiting a ref from.. Zack
