Default I want Chenkov!

A little while ago I was looking on the US GW website classic section for a model for Captain Chenkov (The Valhallan commander bloke on p30 of the Codex, you know the one) to lead my army. I found him, and fairly cheaply given the current $- exchange rate. I was just about to order him when I saw the postage costs...

EMPEROR'S PIGGYBANK!!!!! The postage was about 13! I know it's overseas, but come on! 13 for a tiny bit of metal!

Rant aside, where on earth can I get a reasonably priced model of Chenkov, for which I don't have to pay extortionate postage rates? Any comments gratefully appreciated.

Try searching e-bay? Or, when the trading board re-opens here on Tau Online, post a thread there.

Yep, I paid 14 Brit/30 American (after credit card charges) to get my copy of IA1 shipped to my door, or something exorbatant like that.

That's rather odd. When I ordered my Command Squad from Forge World the shipping was only 12 USD via Airmail.

Ah, Captain Chenkov. You know, he was my first IG model. He looked terrible with my paintjob, but I wonder what I could do with the model now...

Unfortunately, I have lost Captian Chenkov through the long years of play. He is #1 on my Most Wanted/Missing in Action list.

He was actually the original model representaion of Generalissimo Stankov, until I switched to a Valhallan Lietenent.

So no, I can't sell you one, and even if I had him, do you think I would part with him ?

Stankov

Btw, Good luck! I hope you get one, paint it, and post piccies!

Thanks for all your advice guys - I'll probably put something on the trading board.
