*Spend 7 weeks researching correct uniform colours, pay 200 dollars for reference materials and mail ordering the exact paint colour required. *Find the memoirs of a soldier in the campaign. Read it. *He says they all looked like mud-caked hobos clad in rags. *Cry.
This reminds me of a similar but different topic. I go to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for summer beach vacations, have for many years. Many folks drive out on the beach in 4 wheel drive trucks and surf-cast. The poster I saw in a store featured a guy sitting on the bumper of his truck in the sand holding a bluefish, perhaps 8 inches long. As for prices, this is 30 years ago.
4 wheel drive truck $35,000
beach chairs $100
fish cooler $75
graphite fishing rod $200
3 different reels $120
high-test line $15
yield: one 8 ounce bluefish
On another note, discovering this thread and realizing that i posted to it months back.

Just bought a new van this week and was clearing out the old one ready for sale. Lots of general crap over the years. Found some items I had lost and couldn’t find it at the time. No figures or scenery as such, which would be odd if I had. But I did find a Robinson fruit shoot lid. Um, where have I seen them used before?
Got me thinking how I haven’t done anything Wargamey for at least 6 weeks.17/08/2020 at 09:47 #14243917/08/2020 at 15:57 #142455Steve JohnsonParticipant
I do sometimes wonder about the listings on Amazon and ebay, as it seems sellers don’t always look at the ‘going rate’.18/08/2020 at 23:54 #142513hammurabi70Participant
eBay & Amazon are not always the cheapest … or best.19/08/2020 at 00:55 #14251519/08/2020 at 01:15 #142517Mike HeaddenParticipant
Two different prices from two different companies, I’m surprised you’re surprised by that Mike.
Pays to shop around within EBay and Amazon, let alone outside them.

Acck. Never spotted that.
My very bad.
How odd that when trying to buy more than 1 it takes you to another company.19/08/2020 at 08:27 #142527ThomastonParticipant
Is it the same if you use the quantity drop down menu above the basket button?

I like to play check the recommended retail price on Amazon…. often it is over inflated and not true so discounts are fake. Take a look at something like Primaries Intercessors..rrp £39.99 and GW £35….now the actual Amazon price is cheeper at £28 but clearly not honest or accurate information there!13/10/2020 at 08:15 #14543113/10/2020 at 20:53 #145449Thaddeus BlanchetteParticipant

Caveat Emptor. eBay & Amazon are not always the cheapest … or best.
Maybe, but I bought a network streamer* through Amazon yesterday from a third party at £50 less than the third party’s store price, which was already £70 less than the RRP. 🙂
