That should be fine. Unless its really old Eldar. If you drop it and it "tinks" you should be fine.

Is there a limit to how much I bring? While I may not actually bring the Eldar I do have a sizable amount of clean and dirty metal I really want to be rid of. I went through it all this morning (which was actually rather cathartic) and ditched anything that "thunked". I think I found another 3 lbs of clean metal. :devil:

There is no limit that I am aware of. I have seen people bring in 5 gallon buckets of old miniatures.

I'll have over 30 lbs for this next Reapercon as I have had a friend collecting it at various stores in his area.

Nope I drive as it is only a 4.5 hour drive. I have some Warlord armies to build as well as more CAV. And who knows what I will find on the table...

Girot, put them on eBay; Over here the prices for metal Eldar, particularly late Eldar, have skyrocketed since everything went finecast.

Yea, I would second that if you are willing to but the work in. GW metals just get more and more valuable every time someone is forced to complete there unit with a failcast version.

Does it matter how old they are? I've got some really ancient pieces. I'll see about putting up pics of what I have in a different category or forum.

The most recent issues are the ones which fly off the listings - like Hiesler says, it's people wanting to avoid buying an inferior product. Prices quite often hit or exceed what they cost new. And given these are GW prices. . . .

Older miniatures. . . Vary. We're into the collectors market here, and there's some things that sell for ridiculous amounts of money - Like the original spirit warriors - Some that will always sell, the only question is for how much, like harlequins, and others that struggle to make their list price.

Two questions concerning the metal trade:

 

Did anyone every positively identify whether Cronopia was good or bad for the trade?

 

Any problem with the metals already in ingot or bar form?  (they used to be minis -- never give a boy access to a crucible and ladle)

 

thanks

I don't think they have confirmed whether there will be a metal trade for this ReaperCon.

Okay, I checked its still on. Although I would caution people about some of the abuse that occurred last year. The whole idea behind this is that Reaper can pretty much use what is traded in almost directly into their crucibles. If you can take a mini and run it across a piece of paper and not really leave much of a mark then it should be good (although you should definitely continue to check the approved list). If you can take a mini and use it like a pencil then its off the list. I saw quite bit of metal last year that definitely should not have been traded in and not in small amounts either. So please, please double check your minis against the list before you trade it in, otherwise they may well stop letting us do this.

Okay.  Problem is, I can use brand new reaper minis for pencils without much difficulty.  I am perfectly willing to let someone inspect them and let me know which are good.  I also get the lighter and brighter (until you hit them with primer and then strip it off, then all minis go dark) unfortunately, most of these are recovered minis and either don't have markings or are not on either list (Target, in specific)  I have about 80 Chronopia dwarves I have no earthly use for.

 

Finally, what is the generally accepted break point between old ral partha and new ral partha.  70s and early 80s are obvious because of the metal, but where in the 80s did it change over?

 

This is a really great opportunity so I look forward to the fun of picking both between the old stuff and the new.

 

Thanks for helping out the newbie
