Turtle Tank (Painted Miniature Of The Week)

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Eureka Miniatures have produced this Turtle Tank (as part of their Phantasma range). Let’s ignore the fact that it is actually a tortoise for a minute (Turtle tank does actually sound better).

For its downright cuteness/quirkyness, this miniature deserves to be Painted Miniature Of The Week.

Five “Tsk, Typical” Rules of Ebay bidding

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

  1. If you don’t win an item on ebay, you are always the one that was outbid by just pennies (you miser, you).
  2. If you don’t bid on the item that you wanted then it will go for pennies or be marked unsold.
  3. You’ll end up in a bidding war for the same unsold item when it is relisted.
  4. An item with no previous bids, suddenly becomes an object of great desire to everyone once you bid on it.
  5. Congratulations, you’ve won the item, you’ve outsmarted the competition, sure it cost more than you anticipated, but you won through, you smug thing you; Wait what’s that on ebay? Exactly the same item with only 3 minutes to go, and no one has bid on it, Noooooo…
