I'm sorry if I could not read your post earlier I too came back today only... I am very sorry to learn about all the news you said David, but at the same time quite happy to see that the results are there and your wife should be ok, that's all that matters!! I sincerely hope she'll have a great and fast recovery !

I'm sorry to learn you have to part with your collection, but in the end, those are only material possessions nothing compared to someone's life most of all the love of your life !!

I really hope you manage well with your sales but please, it's not a reason to leave this community you have your place among us, not matter if you own a collection or not smile Barliman or even Nob will always be there to pour you a chill drink anytime you want !

Thank you my friend. I don't feel strange saying that even though I've only talked to many here or only via email. However, everyone that I have interacted with has been of the highest quality!

If I may Master Gildor, when I do post my collection do you mind if I place a link to your wonderful Database? It is by far the best and most comprehensive anywhere on the internet and would help by giving people a "baseline" to judge value and rarity. I must admit to wanting to get the most out of the sales as I possible can.

same here -- i had photographed my collection last month and need to upload all the pictures, but will sell just like david the vast majority of my miniatures for reasons similar to his, though notably less vital.

i'll post a list in the marketplace until the weekend, starting with blisters and then with loose minis.

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

Always sad to read when collectors are selling but this is real life isn't it ?
If both of you intend to obtain good money, I suggest you both shall synchronise your auctions and avoid selling same minis at the same time. roll

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

Actually, in Bree dialect a pony is worth £25. (It also has another, less than salubrious meaning, which we won't go into here...)

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

25 quids, Master Tree, not 20. But who knpws? The way this ridiculous Breexit business is going a pony may, indeed, have dropped to £20 by now.

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

huooommm ... I have always liked your pointed puns and play on words, Master Barliman .... rhuom ... and I still do, of course ... hm huom ... so let me please still wait another while ... rhuoomm ... I'm just after a bargain, you know ... huoomm ...
you know that 20 quids still is a bit too ambigious price at the moment ... huooOmm ... and so let me, please, wait another short while and then we'll see .... rhuôm ... er, you know that trees cannot seriously cope or comment on such matters ... huom ... at least not here in these premises ... huom ...

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

Hello dear friends, It's been awefully quiet in the Pony for some time now. Perhaps some of you, like me , have stopped by, had a drink or two, perhaps helped yourself to some vittles, and left Barli the proper coiny things for his provender!

Well, should anyone stop by, please give me a gentle poke to wake me up for a visit and drink as I'll be sleeping at the table over in the dark corner. ;-)

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

If any of you are like me, you'll be sitting at home with dreadful colds. A mulled wine, large brandy or a hot toddy might help, but you still have to trudge down the road in the rain to get it, so I don't blame you for staying abed. (All I have to do is ring my bell and shout and Nob comes running to fetch whatever I need; but it's a shame he's not a mind-reader - then he could bring what I want with him, and save himself a step or two.) As for leaving me the appropriate "coiny things", i don't know where you fellows come from, but if you can direct me to the land where shirt-buttons are the accepted currency I'd be very grateful, because I'd be a rich man there!

Master Tree, you've ALWAYS lurked - the ceiling would collapse if you didn't.
