Barter Bucket: Saturday, January 1st 2011

Welcome to the 2011 Barter Bucket!

Almost two years ago this little orphan bucket made its humble debut. Now it's helped get over 2.3 million bits into the hands of eager gamers all over the world and as far away as the International Space Station! It continues to grow and thrive, and thanks to its established home here at SCWH, its only gotten better.

The Barter Bucket has one purpose; gamers helping other gamers. Hard-to-find bits, regular pieces, and whole models is what in the details. The Barter Bucket is a place to
trade in your old stuff for new, or to get that one piece you need without buying it as part of a much more expensive kit or especially as an overpriced single bit. This concept is kept alive by the cooperative spirit of our gaming community as a whole.

If you see something below you can help out with, or see something you're interested in picking up,

It's a lot of fun, and you really can save lives for the cost of two Chaos Marine backpacks and a single meltagun per day.
