View Full Version : Anyone interested in custom terrain?
February 25th, 2012, 02:37 PM
Hey everyone. Long time Heroscape player, here. I've been kicking around and making custom Heroscape terrain ever since all the legit sets went out of production and skyrocketed on eBay. After seeing some other custom terrain for sale, I figured I'd put some of my own auctions up. Here's a mock battlefield I set up to show everything off:
I'm trying to sell it as cheap as I can. My biggest expense is shipping, so I offer free shipping if you by ten or more items. But anyway, I don't want to be a spammer, so I'll only link to one of my auctions. Just trying to get a feel for what other fans of the game think of my stuff.

It all looks pretty cool! You should check out some of the other custom terrain makers around here. LeifKicker and Grishnakh are the Best.

Thanks boromir. I've seen Leifkicker's stuff on eBay, and his stuff is what convinced me that there might actually be a market for my customs. I figure if I sell some of my custom terrain for a gain, I can justify to the wife spending the exorbitant prices of some of the remaining sets I'm missing from my collection.
So far, I'd say it's been a pretty good success. All of the sets I've listed have sold within a day. I don't have anything up right now, but here's some of the sets I've listed the past two weeks:
If anyone's interested in specific combinations of the following, send me a pm
Jungle set 1
Jungle set 2
Jungle set 3 (the roses took forever but they look really good)
Valhalla Jungle (it's an alien planet, I figure they'd have some pretty cool plant life a la Avatar)

Really nice stuff! I hope you can make some sales for this. Any idea on prices?

I list all my sets of ten at 29.99 with free shipping. That comes to 3$ a tile which I think is some of the cheapest custom terrain on eBay. I'm not selling to make a living or as a job, just to earn some cash to reinvest into my hobby. Sometimes if the auctions get bid up some, or if I get a seller who buys multiple auctions, I'll include a few extra tiles for free.
So, if anyone is interested in a lot with specific quantities, let me know and I can put it together, averaging about 3$/piece unless you want more than ten, in which case I could probably offer a better deal. I always group at least ten together, though, because otherwise I'd sell one for 3$ and ship it for 2.90$. I like to do it this way and offer free shipping because I know, as a buyer, how frustrating it is to calculate all the auctions that are like .99 for the item, plus 3.99 for the shipping, however if you buy another auction then it's only a dollar more per item and so on.
OR, since I'm spending all my money on more Heroscape stuff anyway, if anyone has any extra figures, hit me up on a PM and we can work out a trade.
Here's my current lot up for sale:

Very nice customs. The roses are especially beautiful.
