I just want to make something a little clearer than I did. I'm not arrogant enough to believe i could get a trading post started I genuinly wanted to know why the mods had avoided setting one up and the feelings of the general B&C community.
To cilers's question i think it would add to the community. Yes there might be a few bumps but on the whole it could bring members closer and give people the chance to acquire models or items that might be out of reach, either because said item is OOP or because they simply dont have the spare cash to be blowing on toy soliders.
Example of both was me seeing someone on a FB 40k page asking if anyone had the gaunts ghost models for sell or trade. He loved the books and loved the models and wanted them for his Shadow war kill team. He wasnt willing to pay the price people on ebay were asking for and chanced his luck. I had the models, unpainted and collecting dust in a shoe box somewhere. I was happy to trade them to someone who would actually use them so traded him for some genestealer cultists.
Second example perfectly describes me at this moment in time.
Me and my fiance' have just had to buy a new car unexpectedly, moved into a new home that needs decorated and have a dog that just cost us 500 pounds at the vet.
Now unless i want to be a single man again i simply dont have the spare income at the moment to spend on warhammer has much as i would love to with all the lovely new models on the go. So instead of wollowing in self pity i've dug out all the models i've recieved for bdays or christmases or whatevers over the past few years that i simply wont use.
I've managed to trade away an old basilisk for some primaris reivers and asteron moloc for primaris intercessor. Happy as larry with both outcomes.
Not only that but i've connected with people i other wise wouldnt have. We've talked about what we plan and doing with said models, how we're getting on in 8th and promised to show what we've have managed to achieve with said models
Now i know that for these 3 good stories there will be one or two of some poor bugger being shafted by a wee crook and i totaly get that is why trading on the B&C isnt allowed.
