Welcome to the trading forum it’s highly recommended that you read this FAQ first.
Q. What is the Trading Forum?
A. It’s for buying/selling & trading private items by Heresy members.
Commercial outlets are not welcome to post links or advertisements here without prior permission from myself or Jezlad.
Q .What kind of items can I buy/sell/trade.
A. Any item related to the wargaming hobby. The state of the item is not important, it can be painted, still in its box etc.. as long as you make this clear in your thread.
N.B. Any illegal items or materials that break Intellectual Property or copyright laws will be removed immediately and action taken against the user posting them.(I.e. no castings of original models or pirated materials.)
Q. Im unsure if my items are relevant to wargaming?
A. Then ask a Admin or Mod first, if you don’t and it’s not suitable don’t be surprised if your thread is removed.
Q. What should I include in my post?
A. The more information the better some essential items are:-
Q. Can I post a link to my Ebay auction?
- A full description of the item in question including its status (assembled, primed etc).
- A picture is always a good idea (not more than a couple though please).
- If an item is fully painted despite what you may think about it do not use the words ‘pro-painted’ let the paint-job talk for itself.
- What you would like for the item (i.e. £cash or items in trade).
- Your location and where you are willing to ship to.
A. Yes you can but ensure your thread title mentions this i.e. Ebay - Space Marine army for sale.
Q. OK I’ve posted my advert, why is no-one replying straight away?
A. Have patience do not expect immediate answers and trades, if you are looking for a quick sale then somewhere like Ebay might be better for you. Don't bump your thread until at least 24 hours have past and don't continually bump the thread.
Q. Can I put a link to my thread in my Signature?
A. Yes you can as long as you stay within the sig limits as detailed in the FAQ.
Q. OK someone has replied to my thread and wants to trade, what should I do now?
A. Well you should sort it out between yourselves using the Private Messaging system, make sure you are both satisfied that all details are sorted out before despatching any items.Always make initail contact about trading via Heresy Online so that you know the username of your trading partner. Good or Bad trader posts are not of much use if we do not know who is involved.
Q. Can I check to see if the person I’m trading with is dodgy or not?
A. No all trades are at your own risk. We have included a Good trader thread
where members can post feedback. You should check this first to see if the person you plan to deal with has done so before.
Q. Something has gone wrong. My items or cash hasn't arrived, will I receive replacements from Heresy-Online?
A. No. All trades are at your own risk, Heresy-Online and its staff accept no responsibility, however we will do our best to help you out in case of any problems. If you do have a problem please raise a thread in our Bad trader thread
so everyone can see whats going on and offer assistance where possible. All member information is covered by the Data Protection Act - we will never give out private information.
Q. OK my trade/sale has gone through fine, anything else I should do?
A. Don’t forget to leave feedback on the Good or Bad trader threads. Also post in the original trade thread so that people know the offer is no longer available.
