If it's complete and in good condition, than $100 is a good price in America. Shipping one across the Atlantic where most are found is usually at least $50.

I'll document everything in images this week and post them. It's said to be missing a door, the d12, and one figure is said to have a broken weapon.

I know... I should have investigated, but when there's 50,000 people in the hall, and other people are looking over your shoulder, you make the call...

Cheers for the heads up on mighty warriors, looks like some good tiles inside. Forgot about this one even though I had Space Fleet and remember Ultramarine.

Here's the first batch of photos I could squeeze in...

Image
There's the box, which has some wear and tear...

Image
As you can see, there's a tear in the box under the Fimir's axe, but I don't know if that was there when I bought it, or if it was damage sustained in travel home.

Image
Here's the contents of the box...

Image
Doors! Five of Six. I can probably find another on eBay, but for me, it's a minor issue.

Image
HeroQuest furniture that I don't believe came with AHQ, but it was included. If it's not needed, I'll add it to my hoard of furniture.

Image
This looks to be a complete set of tiles. I'll have to count them out and find out.

And that's it for part one...

Excellent haul, I'd say, even for a buck and change. Congrats.

After a lil looking it appears that the floor tiles in that mighty warriors are the same tiles as that old Rooms thing, just added squares. Will have to be getting this.
