I was recently tasked with selling a huge collection of unpainted 28mm figures from various periods. The figures belonged to a gentleman who has recently passed away. He used to paint miniatures professionally and I have been asked to try and sell his unpainted stock.

There's a few I'll keep for myself, but probably another 4-5 thousand that I will want to sell. The miniatures are too good to give away, but I will sell them for a good price (and hopefully raise some money to go towards the son and daughter-in-law of said gentleman). The figures are nearly all unpainted, high quality and practically brand new. Alas, none of them are in original packaging, making identification an issue, but I'm getting along okay I think.

If any of you folks fancy taking a look, I'm compiling the list, complete with images on a dedicated facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/28mm.miniatures.sell.off

Please feel free to take a look, recommend the page to friends or help me identify some of the miniatures if you like. If you can see I have made a mistake, by all means comment and let me know! I have only just got going with this and will keep adding new items as I log, photo and identify more and more of the figures.

For any buyers outside the UK, needless to say, postage costs might make the miniatures less tempting to you. However if you buy quite a few, you'll still get them much cheaper than original list prices.

Cheers
Paul

Alas no.

I have a frightening array of lead infantry and cavalry, but no vehicles of any kind. Sorry.

Yes.

I haven't got round to logging the dark age miniatures yet, but there is about a 100 of them.

Thanks for that. Absolutely, I did post on TMP, though only on the Napoleonic section. I'll go again and repost in the marketplace. Good idea!
