Just a quick question everyone?
Didn't get in on warhammer till after the 30th edition, but someone local has the XXX white dwarf.
What's a decent price to pay for it, I like the model (gf does too, and absolutely wants it for herself).

Thanks

basic rule of economy.

everything is worth what its purchaser will pay for it

...so, make him offer and find out of he will part with his dwarf.

I am so confused. When did I miss 22 editions of WFB and why would anyone on earth want an X-Rated dwarf?

Agreed. If you dont mind ripping him off; say the following:

Y: How much do you want for it
H: Make me an offer
Y: 20?
H: Hoping for a bit more than that
Y: Well, i saw one on ebay for cheaper than that

Barter continues until it gets to the figure you want

Personally, Id say 20-30 is about the right number.

Haha thanks, meant 30 years duh!
He wants 60$ (Cad) for it. (about 46EU).
So i think I'll pass for now.

Thanks everyone

I'd part with mine for 27 (incl. shipping). Let me know if you're interested.

I see him now and again on Ebay for $20.... If this is the one with Bugman and Gotrek holding him on a shield.

It might be the chinese recast.

Are they all made really cheaply to outcompete western goods? :D

They might be poisonous. I have a chinese resin recast model (not the WD, a different model) and it's very nice.

Once I owned an original one with a shameful miscast on WD's face (crumpled nose), a real bargain :shifty:

Always check Ebay first.

LOL Don't feel bad, I thought the same thing when I read the OP and the thread title.....

Not what I expected from the title...


Why did I open this thread at all? Given the title I should have stayed away...

I bought mine 2 weeks ago, sealed in box, for $30 CAD (Me in BC, Canada).

On Ebay those things sell from $30 to $60 - depends on what a buyer/buyers willing to pay at the time.

If you're looking for resale of a model I won't go higher than $30 on this figure. As a collector who had to have it - I'd go as high as $50 for the figure.

If it's neat to have but not urgent....$35 to $45 is fine.

Considering that when the mini came out in 2007 it sold for $25 US through GW, the aftermarket price isn't really very high.

I know the one you're talking about, it is a cheap recast. Not bad for the price if you just want the model though, but obviously illegal, so no-one here endorses it.
