This is very interesting. A few weeks ago (first week of May), we finalized a large trade that included all of his Crimson Fists stuff, including the items mentioned in this thread (thunderfire, drop pod, sternguard, vanguard, etc.). We were adjusting some minor details of the trade due to shipping costs (apparently just his horus heresy book was going to cost him 40 quid to ship?), and had seemingly finalized matters and exchanged addresses. It's now been slightly over a week since I sent him a PM inquiring about the status of our trade. It has not been read, and in fact, he has not signed on, since May 15th. I do have his name and address, but I hesitate to post it or join on this "backout" bandwagon as the issues he mentioned could very well be true. I will wait another week to receive a response, before I add my voice to the backout/bad trader warnings. I hope it won't be necessary, because over PMs he seems like a decent guy and I hope we can still complete our extensive (almost $1000) trade.

I'd suggest you not wait and go ahead and start your own thread.
