View Full Version : Pete's PFP Challenge

03-06-2011, 07:12 AM
Well I'm finally up and running my auctions. Going with pretty standard rules:

Starting Budget: $17 (2 minis)
I wont count CMON Credits or shipping unless I offer free shipping in auction.

Trying to get to $400 in 20 or less minis or till I get sick of it. All funds raised will go to my wedding :surrender: next summer in Telum Mexico.

First set of auctions up (and already have a bidder on each! $25 total woot)

1)LE Miss Pack Nurse not available to buy, but I costed at $10

2) "The Hanged" Mini costed at $7

And here is the link my auctions:

I have a LE LCB box set in there as well but that wont count towards this.

If a Wamper wins PM me and we can work out shipping. Thanks for checking them out.

Wow less than a day of auction online and looks like you will get a very nice amount by end of the 10 days

Thanks! I'm hoping they do well, the nurse is pretty sweet. If I hadn't promissed myself I'd sell her before I started, I'd totally be keeping her right now.

Good luck, they're doing well (& Lord Chompy Bits should make you a packet too)

Go, nurse Go!!!

Catch LCB :)

Good luck on the ebay sales. How much do you suspect Lord Chompy Bits will net you? :wink:

I won it in a local $10 Malifaux tourney, so I was pretty stoked. I already have one so figured I hawk this one. I've seen them sell for 200-300, but I doubt it will get that high. I did under cut the hell outta some guy that was selling it at 350 opening bid and 400 buy now. I did 50/150 and someone bid 50 right away. So hopefully someon wants one REAL REAL bad.

C'mon baby, Fiance wants a pretty wedding in Mexico!

Good luck with your auctions Pete, looks like they're doing well so far.

Well all right!

Nurse sold for $66
Hanged sold for $13.50 <- this kinda really sux...

Unrelated to my pfp, but to those who were following the LCB auction finished at $ 222.50! a (0) rated buyer contacted me on Wyrd during bidding I gave the go ahead, and he won the auction!

All 3 have paid already.

My PFP fund is up to $71 after I factor in fees that I don't really pay attention to. Just checked and 9%? ouch, total fees for those two were $8.50 ebay is a gouge. They charge me for shipping fees? Oh well, off to the next round.

2 minis
$71 Balance

good work Pete - didnt expect the nurse to sell that high mate.

Fees are a bummer but are a big cost thats why I always take note - roughly 10% ebay fees + 4$ Paypal then theres postage and packaging costs - does add up

13-06-2011, 10:46 AM
Great result, well done, shame about the fees but you're off to a flyer.

13-06-2011, 11:11 PM
Awesome start man, definately can't complain at a kickoff like that one!

Did eBay recently raise its commission rate, that seems higher than it has been in the past?

13-06-2011, 11:42 PM
Great work Pete - at this rate you can fund the wedding in no time :biggrin:

14-06-2011, 01:05 AM
Thanks, long way to go. The nurse was a LE edition that goes for @30 unpainted I've heard. So that was a bit of a bonus but I wanted to get up some capital so I can get going with multiple stuff.

As far as ebay fees go, I listed at 10 days which was .40 each. May not do that on future auctions, although I did get good action in the first weekend so we shall have to see.
