The answer is of course, no. No I dont.

But I got really, stupidly lucky this month.
My local game store went into liquidation (boo) and auctioned off its remaining stock online (yay). I caught the warning email only a few hours before the auction closed, so I quickly signed up and bid on all the reaper stock and well.... I never win at raffles, or scratch cards or anything like that, so was amazed when this happened.

This is me sorting and logging some of the boxes and feeling very, very happy with myself as you can imagine. Amazingly there where very few doubles (you can see them stacked in this picture), especially considering my existing Reaper collection (which I bought from these guys, so I guess it makes sense). I did get eight or nine blisters of battle toads- but hey, looking forward to mounting some dwarves on them for a bit of fun.

Sadly storage space is extremely limited in my flat, so I had to unbox, bag, tag and file all of these away to dwell in the dark confines of my storage lock-up until a rainy day. I felt very sad saying goodbye to this lot, but each month I plan to fish out a few and paint them up. I could not resist setting aside a handful of choice monsters (Gorolith, Dmeonic Lasher and Giant Spider) and heroes to play an upcoming game of Skulldred with so that will keep me busy painting for a while!

Hope you enjoy the picture.

Fantastic score! Any idea of what the retail value vs. what you paid was? And it looks like better than half of what you bought was "fresh stock", based on the cards their on.

What a deal! I've won a few large lots on ebay, so I know that feeling when the box arrives and you open it up. New toys!

@ Inarah, yes its brilliant feeling isnt it? Like being a kid at christmas again!

@ Joshulater Yes indeedy, I Bederken is me. Skulldreds in final playtesting stage now (www.skulldred.blogspot.com). Reaper have kindly allowed us to use pictures of their figures in the book too, which gives me even more reason to paint this little lot!

@ Shakandara Really cheap- averaging around one quarter rrp in most boxes, though the pathfinder box held its price at a few dollars under rrp (and why shouldnt it, they are excellent figures!) Blew me away when I picked them up.

I dig your range Dave. I've found Ed and Reaper to be incredibly supportive of other people in the industry, and I'm glad you'll have pics to work with for the game.

Cheers.

I love the pic!! =)
Congrats on winning all of those. Although unfortunate that your local gaming store had to close (booo =( ) It is still lucky to be able to come across a huge lot of minis at a good deal! =)
