Wargames Illustrated - Issue 1

Next up in my 'finds' from my old chums collections are magazines.

First up were 60 or 70 very early issues on White Dwarf starting with number 9. I sold these very quickly for a reasonable fee to another chum before I could even scan the front pages for a blog entry.

The next box was a pile of early Wargames Illustrated starting at number 1 and stretching to number 27 with only a couple missing. I wonder what their market value is? Any takers?

Penultimately a book which I am sure I have read before but I'll read it anyway. Who was that Monty chap again?

Lastly, I have an enormous pile of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons books. These will have to wait until I have sufficient energy to assess them. I think I need a +1 to my Constitution.


  1. Hi Jim,
    I am interested in the WI.. e-mail (well that usually gets a smile).
    Shall we haggle by e-mail?
    Kind regards

  2. They were a great show case for Peter Guilder figures in those days:)

  3. I sold my early WI issues (nos 1-10) on Ebay a year or two back. They only made £3 or 4 each if I recall correctly. They're not that rare I suspect (or perhaps I was just unlucky!)

  4. That's not a million miles away from the price I am negotiating.

    As I've said to everyone concerned, I cannot spend time and effort maximising every single item in my deceased friends collections. I'm not giving them away either.
