Whenever I go into a gaming store I seek out the bargain bin/table/box to go through first. Most game stores have one, you know, the place where the bad purchases end up. Maybe they are miniatures from a game company that didn't make it (Vor), maybe the company lost the rights (Starship Trooper), maybe the game just wasn't successful in that shop (it takes a special kind of gamer to play Spinespur) or maybe the miniatures were deleted from the new edition of the game (GW).
The store's loss is my gain and I love searching out such bargains. How about you?
