Hey there fellow collectors. I haven't been active for awhile in discussions of this type (several years in fact), but I was hoping to get some help with a project. I would like to get at least 4; M73 (Haradan caravan guards (mounted)). I'll even take just the camel he comes with if you happen to be in my position (missing the rider), but obviously I'd like to have them complete for a caravan diarama I want to display.
I have quite a bit of trade stock. If you have some (M73) and you are interested in a trade please let me know and let me know what you'd take in trade.
When I posted here, it was before I knew there was a place to go to check the collector value and rarity of all the Mithril line. I assumed that the trading stock that I had would more than compensate for a trade like this. Sadly; though I have a few Mithrils that are equally rare, I don't really want to give them up either. This leaves me at somewhat of an impasse with regard to working a trade for the camel riders. I have decided to make my caravan diorama with camel models from another manufacturer, much to my dislike.
This does bring up something else though; I have long had an over-abundance of miniatures that I'll never get around to painting. Since I'm primarily a gamer and painter and secondly a collector I thought I'd put some of my rare stock back out on the market for other collectors. I'll soon post my list of extras (That I don't mind parting with) Which I may end up auctioning. I realize if I do, I'll have to switch to the action listing page. Thank you to those who took the time to consider my trade request.

•MIB=Mint in blister •Mint=not in blister, but in unpainted, fine quality state including all parts(may be glued) •Partial paint indicates that the figure(s) have been partially painted •Painted=Painted (not necessarily well painted, if they were I probably would keep them) •Primer=figure is complete and glued together and has been sprayed with a coat of primer •A, B, C and so on after the description indicates where there are multi-packs what figure(s) are present •Where notes are added they indicate special conditions of the figure (missing parts, etc.) •M000 = items still in my collection but being negotiated for a trade at this time
There are several more Mithril odds & ends around my miniature collection plus some incomplete vignettes and so-on. I have several painted that I plan to keep (unless an offer I can’t refuse comes to me), so I may add to this list later.
