Duelling Gamers: June the Month of Core.


This month we finally see the elves make an appearance, and what a way to make an entrance.

With my $100 retail plus the $30.25 savings from last month this gives a budget of  $130.25 for June, I purchased the following
  1. 20 Glade guard for $45.35 from Wargamerau saving $23.40 of real money but counting as $68.75 towards the challenge.
  2. 6 Glade riders for $11.55  from Ebay , saving $29.70 of real money but counting as $41.25 towards the challenge.
To be honest sometimes the best thing about buying/trading second hand is that you get what you want and only what you want, as is the case with the Glade riders and Glade guard.
I was able to obtain 6 riders and 20 guard  whereas if I had purchased them new it would have been in either multiples of 8 or 16 depending on the GW box.

So after my three months of purchases for the Wood elves my breakdown of spending looks like this.
Games workshop retail equivalent $ 379.75
Actual money Spent $ 147.62
Actual money Saved $ 232.13
So at this stage I have been able to purchased all my figs for an average of 39% of RRP.

So  with all the accounting complete for the month I have $20.25 left for July, now it is on with the hobby breakdown, so for June I have the following for my starting point.
