Would a bitz exchange section be welcome?

    Im thinking that because a lot of lizardmen sprues come with so many optional extras there must be so much stuff sat out there doing nothing in draws/bags/boxes.

    For example, I’ve recently purchased a Stegadon with no horns second hand, and I know that the steg sprue comes with two sets of horns, so there must be double the number of horns compared to stegs out there somewhere!

    I’m sure there’s people other than me who could put it to good use and don’t want to pay £1.50 + postage for a single spear arm on eBay.

    Is it worth a section on here? Who would be interested?

    There used to be a sales/trade section but I believe it was closed down a while back due to inactivity. One of the issues are the great distances separating forum members. Shipping becomes a nightmare.

    Inactivity and the crapshoot of international shipping. There is a lot of traffic now on Facebook for trading.

    You will see the occasional thread in gaming off topic. I guess you could count my business one but that's mainly advertising because I run competitions

    We aren't opposed to the idea, but we never had enough traffic in it to keep it going. Your best bet is to find a generic "all armies" bit swap forum or site and try that.

    If someone wanted to send me one or more links to good 3rd party sites I could add them to our external link sticky threads.

    I’m in the UK, which cuts down the options a bit and reinforces what you were saying about locations earlier

    Whatever is available really, I need the rear main Howdah section for a Stegadon and two horns (the triceratops horns that go on his face).

    Could also do either a pair of bolt thrower or giant blowpipes etc, maybe some crew.

    Like I say I have two stegs that need a lot of TLC :p

    Im building my first box of Guard as we speak. I should have 3 left over. 15 guard per box, 18 shields. However I'm in New England not Old England (lol had to). while I have no problem sending off a few left over bits ... as was previously said international shipping is a thing. if you are willing to cover the shipping id be happy to get them to you.

    That would be amazing but I imagine postage to the UK is going to make it not worthwhile :( how much is an envelope to the UK from the states does anyone know?

    I doubly recommend this. We also have a guy working on a custom Astrolith that he's going to publish the STL files for so that people can 3D print them

    I checked the shipping from Rhode Island USA to Vienna Austria for @Flo ( we were looking at trading some Ark of sotek bits) and it was going to cost me $115 (US) to get it to him... he could damn near buy 2 whole bastilodon for that. ( at my LGS if you are spending more than $50 the owner discounts it 10% so I definitely could get two for that.)
