Hey guys, on occasion my GW (oxford) puts together "grab bags" they did them at Apocalypse launch, anniversary weekend, sometimes with codex launches etc,
basicly they get some random minins, modeling gear, paints , chuck them in a bag, give them a price, staple the bag up and label it (orks.orcs,eldar,painting,modeling, guard, marines etc etc)
I was wondering if any of you guys did this in your stores and share your results? they always tend to be wicked, my brother got the white dwarf and 20 metal rangers for £20!
i just went rummageing and found a £10 Guard one i bought a month or so ago when i started guard, i opend it and found 1x Vostroyan Officer, 1x Sly Marbo, 1x Commisar Guant and 1x Col Schaffer!!! for Ten Quid!!!

At my GW, there used to be auctions, where they'd auction of some old codexes and other discontinued hobby stuff. It was a good way to get your hands on some to-be 'old-school' stuff.
There are also giffles that they held. Every time you spend $20 you get a raffle ticket. They pretty much dump a whole lot of stuff in a box and if you win they give you a box from a particular system.
I got a land speeder and a whirlwind out of it. That was pretty awesome.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
I've seen a couple online retailers do it, but sadly, most are out of business or don't offer it anymore. Has anyone seen any grab bags online either? (Hope this is on topic/doesn't jack the topic!)
To the best of my knowledge the GW stores around my area haven't done gift bags. I don't go to any of them all that often, though, so they could have done it when I wasn't looking!
The have done the giffle before though, as well as auctions. I think it was for an anniversary of something (30th birthday? Eh, my memory sucks...)
They occasionally (again, maybe only for special events) have done a 'buy something and you can take your pick of the back-issues of White Dwarf we don't want anymore' deal. It's not too bad an arrangement, although most of the back issues are there for a reason (because they're full of stuff no-one was interested in when they were on sale the first time)
I got a Grab Bag once with a Giant, and 2 (yes that's right 2) Archaon's on Foot (and a couple of High Elf Chariots).
Din't help the otehr customers that I was probably the only one there reasonably liquid that day (given that I had my CC with me!!)
This was at GW Kensington..
