prospero thread to become dark imperium thread ?

Post by Gadzooks » Sun May 28, 2017 8:53 am

Ahoy -

will there be a swap thread for 1/2 boxes of the new 40k set coming out ?

Search function keeps timing out when trying to search anything for me
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.

Bartertown rules prohibit trading anything not in your possession/available to you immediately (this allows you to offer trades for something a friend is trying to get rid of, for example, but not on something you've pre-ordered, since you can't be certain it will arrive hen promised). So, nobody should be offering swaps on this boxed set for a couple weeks or so.
OBVIOUSLY, the exception for this is our retailers, who are allowed to offer pre-orders.

That said... you're partially right. The Prospero Thread won't turn into a Dark Imperium thread, but will be unstickied and allowed to age off of the system. A new thread for DI will replace it.

Typically, we only keep a specific trade thread for the newest boxed set. We create these threads so that the boards don't get clogged with all the people looking to split boxes. By the time a new boxed set rolls out, trading has leveled off substantially for the previous one, negating any further need for the previous thread.

I hope that helps.

To answer more succinctly, "Yes." :wink:

There have been some sprue shots-- it looked like they'd be similar to deathwatch overkill, i.e. monopose, but often easy to cut with just a little work since they were around joints.

I saw this thread. I have a question. Do we use that thread for trading any parts of DI for other DI items or for any trading involving any part of DI for anything else? Say if I wanted cash/other minis from GW for DI part X or DI part X for DI part Y.
