I responded to a post by Guilldog selling/trading Grey Knights in June. We were able to come to an arrangement where I had a number of space marine models shipped to him from the Warstore and in return he traded me the Grey Knights. I placed the order on 06/20/14 with the last of the items arriving (I'm guessing a warehouse issue) the first week of July. The last message was sent by him on 7/14. I have sent two further replies, but nothing back from him so far. I XXXXX'ed out the addresses, since I think that is the policy. I can provide all tracking numbers and addresses on my end if I need.
If anyone (since he is listed as multiple friends) can reach this guy and find out what is going on, I would greatly appreciate it.

Your post works out really well for me since my son is getting into 40k
, and decided he wants to play GK
I do not have the lot you have listed, but I am willing to buy from an online retailer and have them shipped to you. I can send you the tracking number, etc as soon as I get it.
Otherwise I'm willing to send cash via pay-pal.
I would like pictures if at all possible before I send payment (either way), and would like to know how you want to handle shipping. Especially since it looks like you are in Hawaii and I'm not sure what shipping costs inland are like.
I've only got a single post on Dakka (really long time lurker though) so I would need to ship/pay first.
Guilldog - 2014/06/19 02:12:55
you would be willing to ship the following from an online retailer?
Space marine Codex
Forgefather Vulkan He'stan
1x Space Marine Command Squad (5 Models)
4x Drop pods
2x Stern Guard Squad ( 10 Models)
that would be perfect for me. and if you are willing i was wondering if i could add a land speeder vengance from the dark angels army to the deal. That would be perfect,
If not then the above listed will be just fine. Let me know.
they are mostly primed gold but that can either be painted over or scrubbed off easily.
I'm skipping a few posts where we do the haggling and I confirm his address. I can post if I need to.

I have the confirmation from the WarStore. I'll send you the shipping confirmation as soon as I get it. Did not realized that Vulkan is Web Exclusive for online, so I'll try to stop by my FLGS
and see if they have one (I know they did) and send that seperately. If they don't have one, I'll order it from GW
and get that moving as well. Thanks. (They spelled your last name wrong, despite me spelling it out for them. Sorry)

hell yeah thanks man, i'll do my best to get your army shipped out within the next couple days. Im moving houses right now and my models are at my other house. i'll get them and get them shipped asap.
faeted - 2014/06/21 00:21:07
they sent me tracking number. hopefully you will have it soon.
faeted - 2014/06/25 12:34:31
Looks like the majority of yours should be arriving today. I think they had a day or so delay in the 6th drop pod, but it should be there in the next few days.
I'm not trying to rush, but do you have an update on your end?
Guilldog - 2014/06/26 10:29:36
I got everthing except one drop pod and vulkan. I had a bit of a family emergency and came up a little short on cash. I will be shipping all of your portion of the trade one the 1st if thats ok.
faeted - 2014/06/26 12:49:50
The last drop pod should be almost there. The invoice lists 5/6 shipped on the drop pods for the initial shipment. Since I got the enclosed e-mail the next day, I'm guessing they had to get the last one from another warehouse.
I have Vulkan on hold at my FLGS
, but I haven't been able to get in to pick it up the last week with my work schedule. Should be able to pick up this weekend and mail Monday or Tuesday.
Monday should be fine.

Ordered: 1 In Stock: 1 48-27 Space Marine Drop Pod (1) $29.80 $29.80
Product Total: $29.80
Sales Tax: $0.00
Grand Total: $29.80
I'm skipping a discussion on Vulkan. Since it was direct only, I had to get it from my FLGS
and ship it directly. That is why it didn't go in the initial shipment. I have the confirmation and tracking for it if I need to post.
faeted - 2014/07/02 16:32:04
Here is the tracking number for Vulkan
According to the tracking on the last drop pod, its in XXXXXX.
Any updates on shipping for the GKs
faeted - 2014/07/05 14:39:56
Checking up on the trade again since I haven't heard anything since last month. Hopefully no other emergencies
Guilldog - 2014/07/05 15:04:46
Hey man sorry about that, just started a new job and ive been working 14 hours days. Your stuff is good to go, i have misplaced
faeted - 2014/07/11 11:45:20
Following up again.
Nothing has been received yet. Since its been ~ a week, the post office probably should have gotten it to me. Yours took like 2 days, so not sure what their delay is.
Can you please try to get me the tracking number so I can figure out what happened?
Guilldog - 2014/07/13 20:29:16
I just got your package back saying it had insufficient postage. So I dont know what the deal is. Iwilll re ship it asap.
the paper with the tracking info as soon as i find it i'll send it to you, sorry about not updating you sooner, just been busy man.
faeted - 2014/07/14 16:52:31
Ok, no worries
At least I know where it is. I was starting to be concerned that USPS had lost it.
I want to double check the address you have too
Guilldog - 2014/07/14 18:24:43
all good ill resend it when I get paid tomorrow.
faeted - 2014/07/18 16:44:09
Checking on mailing status again. I was really trying to get this in time for my son's birthday on the 28th. Did not think it would be a problem since I got the first part of mine sent on June 26th.
Please send me the tracking number.
faeted - 2014/07/22 12:34:05
Second request for more information on the reshipment.
If there is a problem, please let me know.
Again, this was intended as a present which I need in 6 days.
