Anyone w/experience selling armies to NobleKnight Games?

Post by connivingsumo » Tue Jan 29, 2019 4:42 pm

Greetings B-Towners! :mrgreen:

Wow, it's been a long time since I've been here. :oops: :(

Getting out of the tabeltop gaming hobby, unfortunately. Last time I was here I was married I think, so being a single parent and working a redonculous IT job doesn't leave a lot of time for hobbies, so I'm sticking with my D&D groups and online games.

I know NobleKnight isn't going to make a decent offer for my PP Legion of Everblight, but even here I'm seeing people sell their stuff for 40% of retail? :shocked:

I figure if NobleKnight is legit, maybe I can move my entire Legion army at once and get some store credit. I have smaller armies that I may be able to move or trade here at my favorite Bartertown hobby spot.

Let me know if you've had experience with them, lessons learned, points of interest, etc. I don't really know much about NobleKnight. Thanks!

I haven't dealt with them, but they have a brick and mortar and have relatively few complaints from the BBB. I'd trust it and if they're willing to buy PP, more power to them.

If you're looking to liquidate non PP stuff, hit me up.

I have a bunch of Malifaux, some bare-metal & nib Infinity, and some old Rezolution - everything else is PP - never got into GW.

I was going to post that stuff here to trade for D&D5e books, D&D miniatures, CoC7e materials, and other RPG miniatures such as Bones, Pathfinder, etc.

Well you won’t get top dollar obviously. I’ve been selling and buying from them since the early 2000 and never had a problem with them and was always happy with offers they made me.

The main issue you are going to have is that PP minis just dont hold their value, gl!!

I started PP in 2006/2007, so I've seen the re-sell drop ever since; 40% is common here, so I don't expect that much from Noble. If I get a decent store credit amount I'll jump on it.

Good to see you back around these parts, cs!
Sate our curiosity, and let us know what kind of an offer you get from them, as far as percentage?

MM!! Good to see you, too! And good to see you still have that awesome gif for your avatar! :D

The offer just came in a few minutes ago.

To keep things simple/rounded, they offered me about 40% store credit, and 32% cash. The store credit is about what I figured, but the cash offer (they pay the shipping, too!) is higher than I expected.

That's actually pretty decent for PP. I'm tempted to sell off everything I get for PP to them.

I traded a bunch of game books, rules and fluff books from several games. Two boxes worth of books. They paid shipping. I got less than have 'cover' value in store credit. I would gotten half that if I wanted cash.

Saying that, the stuff they sold was retail price to collectible price.
Consider them like a pawn shop.

The rep I dealt with wasn't too smart. He said, next time, tell him in advance that the books were stored in the basement.
Florida is only several feet above sea level. If you dig a basement, it becomes an indoor pool.

I had to explain this to him. He said all of the books smelled 'damp'. I told him, Florida is the tropics and the humidity is high. [right MM? He just spent part of the summer at the land of the mouse.]


Like I said, an online, gaming pawnshop.
Heh, I was called a Grognard. ;-)

I deal with NobleKnight a lot and he is a straight shooter... but yeah PP stuff is not in high demand.

Thanks,
Sean

You and me both. I don't have MUCH, but it is kinda just sitting there.

I mean, it was TWO summers ago but, at your age, I can see how the summers all blend together. LOL

I didn't find the humidity bad, but I'm in Missouri, home of "It's not the heat, it's the humidity," and I spend a lot of time outside in the summer, at Six Flags :mrgreen: Florida was just a little more humid than I'm used to dealing with. Interestingly, though, the week we were there, the temps were a little BELOW the average MO summer!

But, yeah... damp SUMMER basements (MO) are different than "damp all year long" basements (FL).

Yeah, and as the OP noted, it just doesn't move well. 32% is a deal in this market. :)
