Mindtaker Miniatures is a buyer/seller of wargaming and roleplaying items. We sell on Ordo Fanaticus, Bartertown, Dakkadakka, Facebook and eBay.
Have a large lot of miniatures that you want to get rid of? We do both consignment and outright purchase, depending on your comfort level and need for immediate cash.
We can do this one of two ways:
Outright Purchase / Trade-In
We buy your miniatures for cash at approximately 25% of retail price and resell them. We don’t do this with everything because some things just don’t sell (see below for items that we will not accept). Additionally, some items will be offered for less than this depending on condition or manufacturer (Example: Privateer Press items are generally purchases at closer to 10% of retail based on the market for these items). This is the quickest and easiest option for you. You get cash immediately for your miniatures!
You can also use this as a ‘Trade-In’ to use as credit for purchasing other miniatures. This works exactly the same as outright purchase unless they are Items We Want. Items on our Wants List and many New in Box items will be traded for at 50% of retail value. Again, some items may not meet this criteria.
In either case (cash or trade), payment will be made once the items are received.
We sell your stuff for you and take a 30% cut of any sales. We will generally do this with any item. It takes a bit longer for you to get paid, but you earn more for your items.
If you’re interested, let us know. We’re always looking for more inventory/consignments.
We can provide you an estimate for potential sales/consignments based on a list and pictures or, if you are ready to go, you can drop off the items and we will start the process immediately.
For a more detailed review of the Consignment Agreement, see our policy page.
You want to sell a NIB Land Raider and a painted Rhino. These two items could each get you the following:
Land Raider (NIB) – $40 Trade, $20 Cash or approx $33.60 in Consignment
Painted Rhino – $11 trade, $11 cash or approx $15 in consignment
Accepting the Appraisal
In either case, consignment or purchase, upon receipt of items we will begin the process of inventorying and selling them. If you have not obtained an appraisal prior to delivery, an appraisal will be provided as soon as it is completed. Receipt of the items by us implies agreement to our policies and consignment agreement, as well as an agreement that we may begin selling those items. If there is a delay in you responding to our appraisal, this may mean that some items begin to sell before payment is made.
Items that we don’t accept
The following items will not be accepted for purchase, trade or consignment. If these are received in a shipment, they may be discarded without payment at our discretion.
- Recast items (personal cast or from a third party recaster)
- Previous edition Warhammer 40k Datacards
