BTR - Vega - Avery Friend, Broken Arrow OK - Resolved

Post by jahiv » Mon Apr 14, 2014 5:07 pm

I hate posting these, but here I am again. Avery Friend, aka Vega, and I worked out a trade: My Skorne and Menoth for some of his Convergence. He's had my models for over two weeks and has told me, twice now, that his models 'have been shipped.' He's stopped responding to my messages. It's been six days since I've heard from him, though in that time he's been on the site, read all but the most recent message, and posted a new thread trying to sell some models.

I'm fine with delays in shipping. Life happens, ya dig? I'm fine with subpar communication so long as the promised package shows up.

I'm a whole lot less okay when there are repeated delays and my trade partner goes silent and *actively* avoids communicating.

Hey, saw your post and figured I'd shoot you a message. I'm interested in the Prime Axiom, the magnetized heavies, the reciprocators, and the two small based units. I don't really have anything off your wants list, but I'm sure we can make a deal.

I currently have:
$500 of skorne,
$100 of menoth,
Cash

I'd be willing to trade the skorne & menoth together for the pieces you've got, which would be a pretty good trade in your favor. I'd also be willing to buy them at a fair rate.

If you don't like either of those options, and have some patience, I'd be willing to trade for or buy a circle, khador or trolls lot you'd be interested in. I'd very much like to work something out, if you're willing.

Thanks for your time

Got in later than intended last night, here's the lists of what I'm working with:

Skorne:
Dominar Rasheth - WB: +5
Lord Assassin Morghoul
Master Tormentor Morghoul
Tyrant Xerxis
Void Seer Mordikaar
- Aptimus Marketh
- Basilisk Drake - PC: 4
- Basilisk Krea - PC: 4
- Cyclops Brute - PC: 5
- Cyclops Raider - PC: 5
- Cyclops Savage - PC: 5
- Cyclops Savage - PC: 5
- Molik Karn - PC: 11
- Reptile Hound - PC: 2
- Reptile Hound - PC: 2
- Rhinodon - PC: 7
- Titan Cannoneer - PC: 9
- Titan Gladiator - PC: 8
Agonizer - PC: 2
Extoller Soulward - PC: 2

Cataphract Cetrati - Leader & 5 Grunts: 11
Immortals - Leader & 9 Grunts: 8
Paingiver Beast Handlers - Leader & 3 Grunts: 2
Paingiver Bloodrunners - Leader & 5 Grunts: 5 (
Paingiver Bloodrunners - Leader & 5 Grunts: 5
Most of the faction deck

The battlebox, rhinodon, beast handlers and reptile hounds are painted, but easily strippable with simple green. Most of the immortals, e Morghoul and Marketh are primed black. The cetrati are the plastic models.

Menoth:
pKreoss (primed white)
Vanquisher (primed white)
Guardian
Crusader (primed white)
Wracks, some bits missing
Cinerators, primed white
Most of the faction deck


I thought I had a little more Menoth kicking around, I really feel like that list is missing something but I can't find it.

Either way, let me know if we can work something out.

I forgot to mention the leader of one of the blood runners is missing his weapon arm, which is a very inexpensive bit, and the blood runners are on resin scenic bases. I can replace those with standard bases for you. The cetrati shields aren't attached yet for ease of painting.

That works for me if it works for you. Did you want the resin bases or plain black? I think I'm good with everything if you are. I can box up and ship in the next day or two

If I don't hear something back soon I'm going to put up a post on the issues forum. I can tell you've read my messages and you've started a new thread, so you've definitely been on.

And that's that. I'm hoping this posting here will give him the kick in the pants to actually take this matter seriously. If not, I've already got the phone number handy for his local police department and I'll be filing a complaint. I've also tracked him down on facebook and if I don't hear from him I'm going to try to contact him, and perhaps family, via facebook in an attempt to get a response.

Have you tried reaching him on Facebook?
https://www.facebook.com/avery.friend.3?fref=ts

Looks like he might be military, based on his pic. Not delivering could cause him SERIOUS trouble.

If you don't have any luck there, here is a list of Facebook friends with the same last name who might be able to help you reach out to him:

I don't have time to investigate their relationships, but a lot are listed as being in Broken Arrow, OK. I'm sure you might find parents, siblings and/or a spouse amongst them with a little digging.
