Striped and ready for me to paint
If you buy miniatures on Ebay or any where else second hand, which would you pay more for a striped figure ready to be painted or a reasonably well painted figure?
Here are a couple of images to give you an idea of the standard.HTML Code:[IMG]http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/9476/img9489wb9.jpg[/IMG]

Yes, I gues I would pay up to £3 more dependent on quality.
Stripped for sure or unpainted for the win - I vastly prefer going into battle with models I've painted - even if they quality is not as good as some I could pay for, I like the feeling that they are MY army, not someone else's.
It depends on the mini and the paintjob... Sometimes I will pay, and have done, sometimes I wouldn't.
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
I prefer unpainted or stripped.
Well I'm not sure if I should really post this, but I prefer to support my local store there's so few of us around here that I only go online for models that my store can not get.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
Preferably: Unpainted. Ever.
Next best: stripped. I put this on a different line as sometimes, some paint would still be present in the hard to access cracks, and also some detail can be lost in the process (although not likely).
Never: Painted. I would never pay money for a painted miniature. If its good, I'd like to look at it maybe, but I would have no satisfaction in owning it, as I did not paint it myself.
It if is not good, I would just want to strip it bare, and I cannot ever be bothered doing that properly. So, only ever unpainted for me!
P.S The exception to this would be rare and no longer in production miniatures, in which case it is worth the extra trouble...
I guess i'm saying I would pay much less for the two example minis you have shown than if they were unpainted, and somewhere in between if they had been stripped...

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
