Hey folks! I REALLY need your help and especially your advice. I have an internationally known gamer that is selling off his lifetime collection that’s worth well over $20,000-$30,000.

Here are a couple of questions;

These items are complete and in their boxes with no damages. What would you pay AS A GREAT PRICE for these items? Also, what would you think is a STEAL, “SELL MY FAMILY OFF” PRICE for these items? ;)

The next question is what do you think of Miniature Building Authority (MBA)?
Will MBA work well with 28mm figures?


Do I have the pricing of an OOP right? The OOP pricing is marked as EX: $99?.


Part of the DF collection he’s offering to me is:

He has painted metal 28mm figurines for use in MBA and DF that are in the thousands. These figures are fully painted with bases and flocking on the bases. The paint job is well above average. How much would you pay for these figures? If you bought 100, 250, or 500?

Once again what do you thing of MBA?

What prices do I need to change on some of these items to be more accurate?

What's a GREAT price for these set?s What's a FANTASTIC "deal of a lifetime" price" The Total FULL RETAIL price For only MBA and DF is $3331

You all have been so kind to me, especially since I'm a Noob at collecting these sets! Thank you in advance for your help and advice!

Those look like reasonable prices, in line with what I have seen lately. MBA stuff totally works with 25 or 28mm minis. I have seen many impressive pics of them but don't own any.
I am a bit confused on your question though. Are you wanting advice for buying the whole enchilada of $20-30k worth or just what you listed? Obviously anything less than half of retail price is a great deal. Also, what is the shipping cost for this? It's going to be very heavy!
Personally, I would be more interested in picking up the painted minis...those are hard to find in bulk with any decent quality.

Arcarius, I'm asking what is a great price below the full retail $3331 for the items I listed. The owner has already agreed to cut the price half-off of full retail. I'm also thinking he will pay for shipping, since he ships stuff daily with the companies he owns.

What is a good price for good quality painted minis? I'm asking for several minis in each character class and race. I'm also asking for 10 minis with each monster type. This will probably be around 500 minis.

Shadbelly, Thanks for the advice!

If you get to pay only half of what retail value is with no shipping fees, taxes or customs fees, It's a rip off!!!... for the seller. If you have the means, the craving for such products and you live far from the US (crazy expensive shipping fees), do not hesitate one second and buy!

Yeah, I totally agree with Biowizard! If he picks up the shipping and will discount 50%, don't even hesitate! For the minis, anything under $5 for a well painted mini is a deal. Metal minis go for at least $5 unpainted these days. Offer $3 per humanoid size, $6 for monsters, more for large size.
Let us know if he has left overs! I wouldn't mind picking over what you don't buy. My email is in my profile.

Been in Australia the shipping cost of any terrain is a big problem. I would also be interested in the left overs if his frieght deal was international!

I'd drop any set still in production by Dwarven Forge and buy it from them. These are likely the older, bow-tie sets, yes?

MBA stuff is great! Just do a *completed listings* search of e-bay to get an idea of prices.

The seller is here in the US. I will tell him that you all are interested. He is fixing to has a massive listing on Ebay. Maybe I can get him to come here first if it isn't a violation of the DF forum policy? Maybe it would be ok to have him simply list what he has for sale and those interested could email him directly? Would this be ok you think?

You all are really helping me out with all the great advice? Yes, every set is a bow tie set. The premium painted minis that he did himself have won numerous awards here and overseas. These metal minis are 25mm. He has hundreds of these top quality "blow your mind" minis with astonishing details. Would you still price these minis at $3 for humanoid, $6 monsters, large creatures say $8?, huge say $12?

I think an ebay listing is the way to do it for max benefit of the seller. It would be cool though if he gave us a heads up when he lists his auctions.
For the minis, if he is wanting to unload most or all of them at once, then yes, those prices are where I would begin negotiations. If not and he wants to sell each individually, just pick your battles. Depneds then greatly on the mini, not just the paint job. Some old metals are rare and he could demand much more for those. But for the general orc, fighter in armor, etc, I wouldn't go too far over those prices especially if you buy a bunch.
And Harneloot is correct. Forgo the sets that are still in production and focus on the other stuff. Let me tell you, the difference between a Room set without bowties and one with is a big one for me. I ran a game last night and layed both types of floors and walls down. The new sets look soooooo much better. I find that it doesn't bother me so much with Caverns though.

I agree about the bow tie sets. If you can avoid them, do. I am very interested in seeing the minis he has for sell. Do you know what brands they are or from what era?

As I've said in the past, I find it to be somewhat insulting/disrespectful to list DF sets for sale here when these same sets are still in production and for sale at the DF store. Remember, every dollar spent on sets from someone else - especially if we are talking about purchases here in the US where shipping & fees are not exorbitant - is one less dollar that Stefan & Jeff can use to keep Dwarven Forge alive and keep it producing awesome new terrain, like the new Forest & upcoming Hellscape sets!
