To Sell or not To Sell....

As I was sorting through that box of old minis I found some odds and ends that I had forgotten about. I'm pretty sure that these are worth something on the open market but the question is would I regret selling them in the future? These include 2 Chaos Dwarves, the dwarf gyrocopter and 3 or 4 Chaos Thugs and 5 of those wonderful C27 Pygmies (Puff, Umpopo, Ugh, Agh & Og) as well as a dozen or so Bretonnian blister packs.

The Chaos Dwarves I don't really care for although you never know. As for the pygmies, well its quite likely that I would never use them BUT I could see myself regretting selling them if I ever headed off into the jungles of Lustria. The thing is what do you do with only 5 pygmies and it would cost a lot to make any sort of army out of them especially when I have more urgent needs at the moment.

The other alternative is to add a trade page to the blog and see what people might offer in exchange.

Decisions, decisions.


  1. Hey there


    Welcome to the blogosphere!

    Don't sell the pigmies! All the other stuff you mentioned, you can get - but pigmies? They would be a much more valuable trade later on, depending on what you're collecting.

    I've had some good successes with my trades page, so I would heartily recommend you set one up.

    What figure ranges are you aiming to collect?

  2. I've come to the conclusion that it is a bad idea to sell anything - you can always guarantee that a year later you just have to start up a Chaos Dwarf warband.

    Mind you if someone else has something shinier trading is always a lesser evil ;)

  3. Thanks for the comments lads. At the moment my main focus is on Orcs and Goblins, but I'll deal with that in the next post. I think I'll do as Gaj suggests and put up trading pages that way if I do regret trading something later I'll have something better instead.
