Thanks for the tip! I'm probably going to get a bunch of these. The price can't be beat especially for prepainted.


He has an entire village starting bid just over$100. How crazy is that?

Hi guys!
I just bid on one of the entire village auctions. I was the first to bid and since I know you guys are probably going to bid for some buildings too, I won't in order to not outbid you guys.
I'd appreciate it if we could have a gentleman's agreement not to outbid each other.

Works for me. I am bidding on two wooden docks, stone bridge, and Cattle shed.
FYI, I have the small house that is starting at $12.62. It is quite nice, although the roof is not quite wide enough for two standard DF walls, you need one of the 1" walls from ABS and a standard 2" wall to make it work. But that roof is solid like a rock!

How much was shipping? It doesn't say on any of his listings.


My first order was for two small buildings that totalled 15 British pounds. Shipping to California was an additional 12 pounds.
So the total was $45.
My second order was for the old water mill and a medium house, price was 23 pounds with another 28 pounds shipping. So, $86 total with shipping. These things are very solid and a bit heavy. I haven't received my second set yet. I will post pics then.
However, the insides are finished.


Thanks Arcarius for these details. My $ is dried up right now. I have to wait for the next harvesting of my money tree! :(

I have bid on the Medievel Inn,

Good thing I checked here first, I wanted the bridge as well but now that I know it is one of you guys I'll hold off on it.

After these auctions end, he will not show any listings far a couple dsys. Keep checking back as he has been regularly relisting items as he makes them.
@Clandestine, thanks for holding off on the bridge.

Re:Alternative to MBA 2 Years, 7 Months ago  
This is very exciting, guys. I can't thank Arcarius enough. I tried not to outbid anyone either, even opting to go for the blue roofed inn instead of the tan because I had seen there was a bid for it. I ended up winning the 6 lots I put bids in for, but unfortunately someone placed a bid on the blue roofed in just moments before I did, and my single bid did end up winning. If it was anyone, I appologize!

What I did end up winning was...

British/Saxon church...$28.41
2 Medieval style houses...$29.99
2-story corner house...$18.93
2-story blue roof inn...$33.16
row of 2-story houses with archway gate...$31.56
row of 3 different style cottages...$23.67

These prices are in USD. Unbelievable. Seller was also fast to get me an invoice and after I paid, he said he would send over the 'cheapest shipping method found' invoice.

Thank you to Arcarius for the original post. These pieces look very nice for the price -- I bid for and won one of the 7 building town sets. I think it will go nicely with my DF medieval building sets.

I would also love to get single roof pieces if the seller does make some available on eBay, or if he does a special order for us DF forum collectors.

I sent him an email letting him know a bunch of us were bidding his auctions. Then I asked if he would possibly list some roofs in upcoming auctions (specifically I asked for those that were close to even inches in measurement so that they would work with DF). Hopefully with the amount of orders he got today that will provide incentive for the roofs.
Glad you guys found some stuff you liked. FYI however, the shipping is a bit slow due to overseas and his economical shipping method. But definitely worth the wait!
For just $58 including shipping, I picked up the set of two wooden docks, the stone bridge, and the stable building (with removable roof!). Totally amazing pricing. He may find himself backlogged with orders soon!

Re:Alternative to MBA 2 Years, 7 Months ago  
Thanks again, Arcarius. I don't mind waiting for these beauties at all. Anyone know of any sort of cobblestone mat, cardboard tile system, road style grid paper that you could set these down on that would look good as a road? I have some of MBA's cobblestone vinyl mats, but I was wondering if there was anything else.


Edit: I am really glad I decided to jump on these when I did. No telling how popular his auctions are going to be now!

Thanks Arcarius!
I will soon be the proud owner of the 7 buildings village plus the building with the gate in the middle. I have to say that shipping to germany sure isn't much cheaper than to the USA which surprises me a little. He told me a 3 boxes solution would be best at 49 GBP.
So all in all, I am planning to use those buildings for the non-important ones while the ones I know the players may want to explore in detail will be built with DF stuff. Concerning the roofs, I recently got some from Yansolo and they are terrific. He seems to have improved the material, too. It's not as heavy as it used to be, but still quite stable. We will see, can't wait for the buildings to arrive...
