Barter Bucket: Saturday, March 13th, 2010

Welcome to the Santa Cruz Warhammer Barter Bucket v2.0! We need your help though to spread the word on your own blogs, the details are here, and for an excellent tutorial to barter bucketing, check this guide out!

I'm your host, Mik, of the aptly titled, Mik's Minis. I came up with the idea of the bucket originally to be all about gamers helping gamers. I'm very excited it has found a place to call home here at Santa Cruz Warhammer.

The ground rules are pretty simple. You send me an email of what you are looking for, need, or just looking to get rid of to "miksminis@gmail.com", make sure it's in list form with plenty of detail. The more detail the better, if you're getting rid of Orks, tell me what kind, how many, etc. I will then post the requests here weekly each Saturday morning at Santa Cruz Warhammer. Please have your emails to me by no later than the Thursday of that week so I have enough time to compile everything, get it edited and formatted in time for the Saturday post.

If you see an item below you are interested in, or can help someone else out, please contact the individual directly via their email address. Sometimes they're just looking for a single piece or two, you'd be surprised what all you can find at the bottom of your bits bin. Now, on to this week's bucket!

  1. You know, nothing made my day better than getting no less than FOUR emails within a couple of hours of the Barter Bucket posting, with people offering bits I'm looking for! I hope other people are having similar positive experiences, remember, it takes all of us to make it work!

    Rock on,

  2. jvalenti57@gmail.com was unclear to me that a bit was missing from the treeman I traded him for. He did send pictures but chose not to explain and has ignored my emails since I asked him politely about it. He also shipped my stuff in a manner that ended up with almost half the models broken or bent because they were loose in the box.

    Please people, be very clear about what you are trading and send stuff in a way that actually secures the model in the package. The postal service is very rough with packages.
