    To paraphrase Holofernes:

    If you want to sell on-topic, Pirates related stuff here in the forums (versus on Bay), or want an opinion on what xyz collection or set is worth, or want to buy or trade something… post it to this thread instead of starting a new one, to keep the forums market free. Then those who want to buy and those who want to sell can have a place to do so in peace. Or in strife, whichever is more piratey.

    Alright, looks like it’s time for the annual Black Friday week sale at Hill’s Wholesale Gaming! (HWG)
    http://www.wholesalegaming.biz/pirates/

    As of this post, 4 items marked down a decent amount; RV is probably the best deal of those that are on sale. (they used to sell OE for $38/36 packs, so that one isn’t as good in hindsight, but still nice)

    No idea if any of these will change throughout the week(end), but I think last year it remained pretty consistent. This is almost always the best time to buy from them all year.

    Is Hill’s Wholesale Gaming trustworthy? I’ve seen a lot of complaints online about orders never being shipped and bad customer service. As far as I’ve seen, their item descriptions are not great, and they haven’t answered any of my calls or emails asking for details on an item. I only have experience buying from eBay and locally, but I’m hoping to grab some good deals on Wholesale Gaming. I’m just hesitant to place an order due to what I’ve read. Does anyone have experience with HWG?

    I’ve bought two 36 pack boxes, a OE mega pack, and unrelated CCG boxes from them and they’ve arrived on time, undamaged and otherwise in a satisfactory condition.  I trust them completely, especially since most of the posts you’re talking about later go on to say that their orders were eventually placed and were backed up in the first place only because of an item shortage on their end.

    I bought from RainTyger the other day. Let’s see how they do.

     

    Fun fact I apparently ordered something from them when I was 14 and never paid. I tried to sign up and they told me I’d already made an account… then I saw confused messages from them asking if I was gonna pay or if they should cancel my order /facepalm

    Yes!  I’ve bought from them multiple times with good experiences.

    They are great as well!  🙂

    I’m on the hunt for a few items from MI: Mobilis, Eileen O’Brien, HMS Zephyr, and Hermoine Gold. If anyone sees them for ~7.50 at most let me know!

    Looks like RainTyger has Zephyr and HGold for <$7.50, I didn’t look anywhere else.

    The quoting system doesn’t work well right now, possibly because of the Visual vs. Text editors being different.  It’s one of many things I hope to fix in the future.

    The best way to still be able to quote someone’s post is to paste as plain text with ctrl+shift+v instead of ctrl+v. (on a PC anyway)

    What luck! Just messaged the guy on reddit.

    I just spent twice as much on ebay for some of the things he’s selling -_-

    Ooh, I’m very sorry to hear that. I use the Miniature Trading website to get my stuff. I took one look at the price of a single fort in EBay and I hauled out of there. Upwards of $15 for Fortaleza Dorada, $27 for Harbinger, $14 for a couple mixed named crew… This hobby would have been prohibitively expensive had it not been for the dudes at MT, and the sellers at Wholesale.
