First of all who are you calling KID you don't even know me!
Speedy, I think you're totally missing the point. Ghost is interested in selling to someone who will use it and not resell it for their profit. Selling to theessexgirl and others like them just means that that piece will stay in Ebay limbo until some poor sap spends the extra cash unnecessarily. I think its nice for someone to have principles these days.If she keeps it in limbo does it really matter. These types of prinnciple are silly. If Ghost wants to sell his chaos dwarves then sell them. Ebay will go on an people will buy and sell Chaos Dwarfs as they please. All Ghost did was alienate a buyer. What you guys are extolling as principles is just really pretentiousness. If the sexy girl resold the items who cares. High prices do not garrentee a buy. You are not saving anyone by doing crap like this.
The only thing this did is make Ghost look silly. Honestly, wargammers get a bad enough rap as it is. Ghost gave this person quality stand up comedy to make fun of him. I have seen this sort of scenecs in movies like the 40 yr old virgin.
For my part, I just telling the kid: "Take a secondand think about what you are doing?"
I am a collector of Citadel miniature and I have been for over 14 years.
I very really sell models may be 60 over the last 10 years as I prefer to swap them to help my collection and like wise to the other party.
I offer on CDO and had know takers so I put it on ebay for .99p and I was happy to see it go for that price as the model is useless to me I all ready have one and I will never field two at the same time.
I did want to see it go to a store who the on sell it for 17+ quid and it my proactive who I stop from buying my things. I also have a second army worth of metal epic 'nid that all stared at .99p when you compare the price of them to one of the bigger epic stores I couldn't believe the price difference.
And as for the part about it being stand up comedy he/she was the one who had the retard remark, and in that showed full well that they know why some one would do that.
Id like to thank Willmark and Pyro Stick I know they as collectors can apreciat why I did this
Ghost first of all I've got nothing againast, really. I going to be as crystal clear as i can be and I don't mean to offend you. You point is stupid. You are getting all worked up over nonsense. Supply and demand drive the pricing of products. The lady is not going to affect pricing of chaos dwarf items. She does not have a monopoly on chaos dwarfs nor will have one. The essexgirl will never drive the pricing of chaos dwarf items.
If you list an item to sell on ebay then randomly censure people from buying them because of a self righteous attitude that in doing this you are somehow doing gamers a favor, all you a being is a turd. You can try to cast it in a different light but I'm calling it what it is.
Honestly, the fact you feel so strongly about such a trivial thing is hillarious and scary at the same time. Dude, it is just a game. Life will go on whether chaos dwarfs sell for a nickle or seventy dollars. However, being an asshat to people interested in the hobby just keeps people away from it. If essex girl was interested in taking up Warhammer, do you honestly think she is going to game now? If anything you drove her straight away and your bragging about it. Tell me why your proud about that?
From my understanding, you don't know this person but have made several assumption about who she is and what her ethics are. The reality is you don't know a thing about her but are all too willing to slander her. That is not cool and no amount peer pressure will ever make me buy into that kind of BS.
Keep your miniature. Whatever you are selling it for, it ain't worth the price.
