Barter Bucket: Saturday, January 29th, 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,
please contact the individual directly through their listed email address.

I'm Gyro of Mik's Minis, welcome! To participate, all you need to do is send me an email to miksminis at listing what you are looking for, or have as surplus that might help someone else out with. 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.

Make sure your email is in list form with
plenty of detail, including the quantities of each you're looking for and quantities of what you have. Emails received by Thursday will post that weekend here at SCWH, otherwise they'll get queued up for the following week. Thanks, and remember, change comes from within...your bits box!
