Backout - cabward1982

Post by markdbeecher » Mon Feb 24, 2014 12:18 am

Summary:
Had negotiated a trade with cabward1982 (Colin Ward) over the course of about two days. We came to an agreement where I was buying models off of him. I sent payment through paypal on saturday morning (Feb 21), and he was to mail the models to me on Monday (Feb 24). Saturday evening he sent me a PM saying he sold the models to someone else, and that he was refunding my money. I did get a paypal refund Sunday (just after midnight local time).
Colin didn't rip me off, it was just an inconvenience and annoyance; and I could foresee this situation being worse had we been trading vice buying. Just a heads up to future traders.

Man, if I would have seen this 2 weeks ago I would have bought it on the spot.
I just bought about $650 (retail) of NoS models, and I can't use all of the stuff you are selling.
I do have a few hundred $ left from a recent sale that I am willing to spend, if you are entertaining offers on large portions (about 1/2 your army)?
If you aren't willing to split it up right now, that's cool too; let me know when you are.

cabward1982 wrote:I'm having a baby and need to sell one of my armies as I will probably never get around to painting it (after the other two in line before it). My loss is your gain!!! All models are assembled very well. All mould lines are cleaned, no excess glue, no primer, no paint. They're all pinned to bases. I'll include all the extra bits. Can provide pics on request. I WILL NOT ship to Canada, I also don't want to break up the lot, but if I do it'll be at less of a discount. Total retail is over $1,200, would like to get $550 shipped but can make a deal if necessary. If you have some Cygnar from Warmachine to offset the cost that is a possibility, but not ideal. Send me a PM!!! Will respond to everyone.

The army:
Codex
40x Gargoyles
2x Tervigon
80x Termigaunts - 40 w/ devourers, 40 w/ fleshborers
40x Hormogaunts
Swarmlord
2x Winged Hive Tyrant w/ fleshborer hives from tervigon kit
Trygon Prime
16x genestealers (scything talons and rending claws)
Venomthrope
Old One Eye
3x Carnifex ( 2 w/ devourers and scything talons, 1 w/ scything talons and crushing claws from haruspex kit)
Broodlord (metal)
2x Haruspex
Exocrine
Harpy
Hive crone
3x tyrant guard w/ lash whips and bone swords
3x Hive guard ( can have either weapon)
Lictor (finecast)

What are you looking for from the lot?

Well, possibly the following:
Codex
All Termagants
Both Flyrants
Venomthrope
All carnifex (not one-eye)
Hive crone
Haruspex
Exocrine
Hive guard
Lictor

I don't want to make the rest of your army un-sellable though, and I'd have to look into retail prices to determine what I can offer.

Sorry about the slow reply; yesterday was the wife's birthday and we celebrated today.

So, I'd need to see pics of the models first, and verify the spare bits, but I would be interested in the following:
Codex
80x Termigants - 40 w/ devourers, 40 w/ fleshborers
2x Winged Hive Tyrant
Venomthrope
3x Carnifex ( 2 w/ devourers and scything talons, 1 w/ scything talons and crushing claws from haruspex kit)
Hive crone or Harpy
3x Hive guard ( can have either weapon)
Lictor (finecast)

I'd probably be in it around $300, depending on the condition of the models.
Let me know what you think.

No worries. Have a guy interested in most of the lot, but have set aside:

Codex
40 termagants - 20 fleshborers and 20 devourers
2 flyrants
3 carnifex
Harpy
Hive guard
Lictor

Retail is around $500, would sell for $240 shipped. Will also throw in swarmlord and tyrant guard. No bits tho.

I need pics of the models, but I would do that price. I would like the MC devourer bits if possible, but I'm not worried if those are taken. Do you have the spare scything talons for the carnifex and/or tyrant at least? Those are the only bitz I was really wanting....

Got the pics, looks good.
Before I send the money, just want to verify the purchase/trade:
40 Termagants
2 Flyrants (both newest kits)
3 Carnifex
Harpy
3x Hive Guard (with both weapon options)
Lictor
Swarmlord
3x Tyrant Guard
And enough scything talon bits to give all 3 carnifex, and both tyrants, all talons.
For $240?
Send confirmation if that's what you're expecting, and I'll send the money today.

Unfortunately the other guy backed out of his half of the parting out, and I got an offer for the whole army from someone else. I'm keeping the army together and selling to him. Will refund your money in a few hours when I get home. Sorry

I'm sorry to hear this. I don't want to sound rude, but I'm not concerned with what happens to models outside of what we agreed to trade. I won't hold it against you for choosing to back out of our trade; but I hope you will understand if I post your name in the Deadbeats & Backouts Forum if that happens.

Post wherever you want to. I apologized. Said in the post I didn't want to part it out, other guy backed out at the last minute so I would have been left with half an army. Hope you post the entire email exchange in the text when you post. I'm genuinely sorry but have to do what's best for my family. Will get the money back to you in a couple of hours when I get home from work

interesting. I was working on a deal with this same trader and he then reposted the Item we were talking about in a new thread. When I communicated back to him his response was "Oh I thought I had responded to you, sorry" I would hope that this trader does not do this often but I can certainly understand the annoyance it causes when you THOUGHT you had a deal either in the works or as the previous poster did, already worked out and agreed upon and then get backed out on.

I think it would be advisable for anyone thinking of trading with this person to be a bit more diligent in their negotiations.
