Update: Mr Kinch over on Joy and Forgetfulness has followed suit...
Another Update: The Santa Cruz Warhammer guys have two similar initiatives
The Barter Bucket
and the Super Blog Chain Give Away Competition
The basic idea is that instead of giving something in return to someone who helps you out, you give something in return to someone else in need. We've all received bits from our fellow gamers where we don't want to go to the expense of making a full order just for minor piece of a pack. And I'm sure that most gamers have bits lying around in boxes that they'll probably never use.
I'm adding a tabbed page to the blog so that people can see what I'm giving away - all I'm going to ask is that people pay the postage (these are all pretty light, so even internationally it won't add up to too much). I'll weigh and price them over the next while for some likely destinations.
Description - Company (Range) - Scale
4 Dark Elf Command & Bolt Thrower with Crew – Games Workshop (WFB) – 28mm
3 Chaos Warriors – Games Workshop (Warhammer Fantasy Battle) – 28mm
Me109 Decals - Airfix - 1/48 [though I'm not certain about the make]
Eldar Decals - Games Workshop (40K) - 28mm
French Napoleonic Dragoons on foot - Perry Miniatures - 28mm [on sprue and from current BattleGames magazine]
Obviously whether you want to do likewise is completely up to you and I won't put any preconditions on my sending these to you, but I think it would be exceedingly cool if this snowballs across the blogosphere!
