Miniature swap – travelling wargame box

In 2021 I participated in two travelling wargames trade boxes, and the first one, the "Kramkiste" (stuff box), arrived. A bit lighter than I expected and with the modest trades of the participants before me, I didn't really knew what to expect.


So I opened it up and took a look into it. Some odd items, along with improvable packaging on some pieces. And with this blister I honestly don't know what is in there. Hast off to the ones organising these boxes, as it is a bit of a social experiment. And I can only appeal to the guys participating, make sure you properly repack and arrange the items, when you browse. Don't just throw stuff in a bag, use proper padding and so on. If everybody takes that precaution the overall experience is much better for everyone.

Most of the things really didn't work for me. But I took these items from the box.

  • A limited Space Marine Sgt. (as someone from our paint craddle is looking for it)
  • Ulrik the Slayer, as I fancy the old space marine characters
  • A Swooping Hawk exarch for my Eldar project
  • a zombie banner bearer, I didn't even had on the clock that they had a command group
  • Empire Greatsword
  • Chaos Sorcerer Tzeentch


In return I added these to the box

  • To boost the existing dark elves I added a unit of cold one cavalry and corsairs to the lot
  • 3 sprues of Bolt Action US American Infantry
  • Kings of War Ogre Berzerker Braves
  • Crooked Dice Danger 5
  • Avatars of War Nurgle Demon Champion
  • 3 Prussian Command models
  • Copplestone Gangster
  • Scibor festival special miniature

So all in all, the box merely stayed half a day with me, and I dropped it off at the post office that evening, along with some other items that I sold. Won't be my only trip to the post office that week.


Looking forward to the other one, HANS! latest incarnation. I enlisted on that one quite late, so it will take a few weeks until it arrives here.
