Well, we're getting to the end of the auction. It's been very pleasant exchanging e-mails with those of you who have bid. You can feel satisfied that you'll be getting some great figures and contributing to a great cause - thank you!
For those of you who haven't placed a bid (yet!), I'd like to stress that there a some real bargains here.
I'll just highlight the two lots which (inexplicably to me) haven't received any bids.
Lot 4B -12 figure line regt ( the 60th Royal American Foot) - no bids
Lot 7B - 6 figure light infantry ( The 46th Foot) - no bids
HOW TO BID
E-mail diplomatist2<AT>gmail<DOT>com with details of the lot you are interested in and your top bid. If you are bidding on an item that has not yet received bids then include both your starting bid and your top bid.
Well we're more than half way through the auction now, and we've a fair number of bids - surprisingly though there are a couple of lots with no bids, and some lots are going to go at real bargain prices. Is it the old eBay habits? Are you all out there waiting to snipe at the last minute? Remember: if two bids for the same amount come in, the first one received wins.
A Shout-Out to Painters
Before I highlight some more of the lots I'd like to make a shout-out to those people who donated time and effort in painting figures for BfC. I think it's only right and proper that you get due credit, but I don't have a list of who did what. Can I therefore ask the painters to drop me an e-mail, letting me know which pieces are theirs?
Apart from anything else, I'm sure the successful bidders would like to know whose work they now own.
First, I'd like to say thank you for all the messages of support and goodwill following the re-boot of the BfC auction. I'd also like to thank those of you who have sent us bids!
Over the next few weeks I'll be highlighting a different lot in each post. Today's is Lot 1F - Two Mounted French Officers. As you can see, they seem to have spotted each other across the field of battle and are making their 'bonjours'. The bid on these (at the time of writing) is £10.00.
