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.
the pics
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.

faeted - 2014/06/20 14:05:48
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.

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.

I was finally able to reach him via facebook. I started sending messages to every contact point I had for him when I couldn't get anything otherwise. Received answer about 1:00 am EST today.

<Hey man im real sorry about that since ive ben out of the army ive been bouncing from place to place living with different family members for a few days at a time here and ther, your package came back to my uncles and I havent been qble to make it back over ther yet between work and looking for a place for my fami lo y to kive ive just been cqught up. In all honesty warhammer hasnt even been on my mind lately. I,ll do what I can to reship your stuff next week. Just been having a really hard go of things lately I know its not your fault or problem but I am truely sorry. I can try to ship your package next week like I said and maybe work something out to compensate you for all the trouble and wait ive caused you. Just let me know and we will sort it out.>

My reply was:

<Like I said I was really just trying to get updates and convince myself you weren't deliberately trying to screw me. Anything else you can do would be appreciated. I had friends in the military and I remember what it was like for them when they came home. Just please keep me updated. I'll put this on dakka as we'll for an update>

I am willing to work with him on this, despite the annoyances. I honestly don't have a whole lot of choice at this point. Although in hind sight, with the way things have been going, I would not have started this trade.

Long shot, but the shipping address wasn't in or near Shreveport was it?

Ask for a pic of the returned package. Seems every scam always has "it came back to me" somewhere in the conversation.

I had a square deal with him before(huge trade). I have to think he's is a hard spot. The story of him moving from Hawaii and getting out of Army is true.

Keep us posted.

I also have a trade that I did with Guilldog - I have texted him I think... He was in Hawaii in the Army but then went civilian, so has been in the middle of a move - he reassured me he would be shipping his half soon but it has been about a month now.... I think hes just broke now.

I had a previous successful trade with him, and it was timely etc, this is just ridiculous though. I dont feel the need to make my own transaction report, but if you need any info please PM me

@ Azrael13 - shipping address is Lake Charles.

@Byte and norrec65 - That is kind of why I waited almost a month before posting a report here. As I told him, I had really good friends who had to transition from military to civilian life and it was not easy on them. I think we will eventually get this worked out, but I still wanted to get everything documented just in case I needed it.

Will keep posting updates as I get them.

Right, he seems like a nice enough guy - and I have traded with him before! Just need him to get proactive on making things right. Its around 125 retail I have been waiting on while he has my merchandise.

Ive got about $500 retail tied up in this one, so I'm really hoping to get it worked out.

Worst part is that my son's birthday is tomorrow and I've got an IOU on a 40k army for him. The FLGS has nothing for his choice, so I now get to break that too him. Wasn't his only present, but it was his only larger item.

Shipped both packages today, the one to norrec and the one to Faeted

Tracking is 1ZR0469E0397969121 to Norrec

and Tracing to Faeted is 1ZR04690331305569

Both sent by UPS and should arrive on the 7th

Just having a hard time after moving back from hawaii, with the finding a house and shipping the car and getting a new job
the army kinda screwed up my paper work so i wasnt able to start school right away like planned and fell into a hard spot
financially. In both packages I included extra models. In Faeted packages I included Coteaz, Draigo and extra NIB grey knights.
and in Norrecs packaged i included extra NIB Grey Knight Terminators. I know it doesnt make up completely for missing
his sons birthday or for the long wait time but its the only type of compensation i have at the moment. When i get more stable
financially i will work something out with both of them to repay them for the trouble. They have both been very understanding
and patient with me and im very grateful for that. Had i been me waiting this long i would have posted a report a lot sooner
than he had. So thanks again to both of you for giving me the benefit of the doubt and being so patient and im sorry for causing
you both so much trouble. I should have waited until i was moved to try and set up a trade. It was a mistake i dont plan on making
again .
