I didn't want to bring it to this, but I've been getting yanked around for two and a half months. A heads up -- I deleted his side of the PMs from early on when I thought this trade was dead the first time. I do, as you'll see, still have the PMs where we agree to a trade. And awaaaaaay we go!

This is what im looking for
O&G -
10 Squig Hoppers
4 Spear Chukkas

Dwarves
10 Slayers

SPACE MARINES
Terminator Squad Box- box opened but wrap still there and sprues intact
1 half built landraider with options for crusader and regular

I have 10 squig hoppers, one fully painted, one basecoated, and the rest are unprimed. From memory, I want to say one or two have broken off of their bases (the metal tabs that go in the slot broke off), but I can check on that. I also should have an entire spear chukka in my bitz bin, but again I'll have to verify. I definitely have ten slayers, on their bases and primed. I'd be interested in the termies and/or the land raider. Let me know.

Cheers,

Dan K.

Sorry, the slayers just went in a different trade. Apparently they're a hot commodity right now! Anyway, I don't have any extra ironbreakers or hammerers, but for warriors, I have 11 of the 6th edition warriors w/great weapon and shield (1 is missing a shield). They've been stripped then primed again, so there may be spots where you can see the original paint job. I also have the bits to make 12 of the new warriors/longbeards, still on the sprue. I raided them for the bodies that have cloaks, and weapons/shields to equip them, but left everything else on the sprues. I also have the new, metal BSB assembled and primed, and a grudge thrower NIB. Let me know if you're interested in any of that.

Also, a suggestion -- to get around the ridiculous price of the old, metal hammerers, not to mention their single, kinda boring pose, I built a unit of the new plastic warriors and just snipped the heads off of the great weapons, replacing them with hammer heads. If you'd like to give that a shot, but don't have the hammer heads or the patience, let me know, and I could always assemble, clean and convert the twelve aforementioned plastic warriors I have into hammerers for you. Or I could add in some extra dwarf hammer arms I have so you could do the conversion yourself.

Cheers,

Dan K.

Haven't heard from you in a few days. Let me know if you're still interested in a trade. If not, no worries.

Cheers,

Before we finalize anything, do you have any pics of the land raider? I just want to get an idea of the condition and how much building is left.

Cheers,

Hey man, just haven't heard anything in a few days, so I wanted to know if you were still interested in a trade. Let me know!

I'm going to assume that, since I haven't heard from you in two weeks, this trade isn't going through.

Dan K.
This is where I probably should have just left well enough alone. But he did PM me that day (which, unforunately, I lost).

I'd still be interested. I don't think we had finalized things, though. And I deleted the messages from you! I know I was going for a Land Raider, can't remember if there was anything else in there as well. And on my end, there were the ten squig hoppers and some dwarfs, but I think was the part that wasn't finalized. Did you ever take pics of the Raider?

Cheers,

Dan K.

Well I appreciate you sending the pictures. To review, since it's been a while (and I lost some of our earlier messages), this is what the trade was looking like:

You
1 x Partially assembled Land Raider w/all remaining bits (as shown in the picture)
1 x Opened but still NIB Terminator squad

Me
10 x Squig Hoppers (one painted, one partially painted, two that need to be glued onto their tabs)
11 x Last edition Dwarf Warriors, stripped and reprimed

I also have a bunch of last-edition quarrelers in the same condition, if you want me to throw those in as well. LMK! Also, and I mean no offense, but seeing as you have a very hectic schedule, and even though you have a higher feedback rating, would you mind shipping first? I would just feel a bit more comfortable, and wouldn't want to have to worry about contacting you if things get busy again.

Cheers,

Dan K.

Sounds good to me. And yeah, when work decides to step it up, that's always a good time. One last note on the models, as I just dug them out and really looked at 'em -- you can still see mold lines on most of them. If that's a deal breaker, let me know. If not, here's my address:

Heya,

It's been about three weeks since the last time I heard from you, and I haven't received any models, confirmation they've been sent or a notice that you're not sending them. Can you please update me and let me know what's going on? I'll give it another week before I consider this trade dead. I would appreciate an update either way.

Cheers,

Dan K.
So I haven't heard from him since May 22nd. He did receive ALL of my messages, and has logged on as recently as Tuesday. I know it's not quite Friday yet, and in my last message I said I'd give him a week, but I'm busy tomorrow...and I feel the three weeks between our agreement and now is more than enough. I will send him a final PM with a link to this thread right after I post it.
