Anyone wanna sell me a Nike?

Postby Banzai » Tue Nov 20, 2007 11:29 pm

Hello, new guy here. Just getting back into wargames after almost a decade off. Lots of EA:EY and CA on the way.

I'd LOVE to have a Nike, if anyone has one to sell me.

Thanks,

Tom

Sorry? Nike? Isn't that a ship from Honor Harrington?

You mean HMS Nike, the battlecruiser Harrington commands in The Short Victorious War. I forget the hull number and class designation...

I contacted Chris Yu a couple of months ago about the Nike BCs. He said he was out of stock, and was waiting for enough new pre-orders to warrant a new mold.

He hasn't contacted me since, though.

I also have pre-ordered, but that was several months ago.
No, trust Ivanova, trust yourself, anybody else, shoot'em.

Yes, emailed multiple times over the last few months. I have yet to recieve any response, so I figured that he's out of the business and I figured that I'd try here to see if anyone had one to sell. If anyone knows how to get in touch with him other than through the link on his web page, please pass it along.

Hi all,
I'm not 'out of business' or anything...creating and selling the mini was a side project. That said, a new batch is on the horizon but it has been tough making time for it (kid + one on the way + a business can do that).

I've also drifted away from ACTA which doesn't make it any easier. So, if you've contacted me regarding Nikes, I do have your emails...it's just a matter of making time for another batch. Can't say exactly when that will be though...

PTW,
Thanks for responding here with an update for us all! Active duty military and 3 kids of my own, I know exactally what you're talking about! How much "pretty please, with sugar on top" is it going to take to convince you to come out of casting semi-retirement? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Same as it takes to get a Good Conduct Ribbon, Banzai. And don't forget:

You mean the "Congratulations, you didn't get caught doing anything we could prove this tour" award!

Time and patience, and plenty of both!

Sometimes it's who you know. Sometimes it's what you know. All too often, though, it comes down to what you know about who you know!!
