Hi guys, I'm getting back into the GW hobby, and looking to consolidate my stuff into 40k for now. I haven't played in several years, and I'm looking to sell my lizardmen and Bretonian stuff. I'm hoping that you guys and gals can help me out by giving me some idea what I might be able to sell my stuff for.
Here's what I have for lizardmen
1 Stegadon - unpainted
32 Plastic Saurus warriors 11 are unpainted
2 Temple Guard command groups (champion, banner guy, drummer) 1 group unpainted
29 Plastic Skinks with bows 8 are not completely painted
1 Skink command group (champion, banner guy, drummer) unpainted
2 Salamanders with 4 Skink handlers each
3 Kroxigors with great weapons
1 Skink shaman
They are all painted to tabletop quality unless otherwise noted.
12 plastic knights
24 plastic archers (8 are primed)
I'd prefer to sell these locally, since I have no clue how to pack these for shipping, and I would hate to have them destroyed in transit, but I would be open to suggestions on what the best way to sell miniatures is.
Thanks so much, and who knows, I may get back into Warhammer fantasy at some point, but right now finances dictate one game, and I'm more into 40k at the moment.
Usually 30-50% off original retail is fair value for a large collection of used minis. Lizardmen are about to get a lot of new models, so those might be harder to sell unless you find someone who's an enthusiast for collecting OOP minis. Tough to comment on the value of painting without actually seeing them. If you feel it really is quite good tabletop quality (some people say 'table top quality' when they mean 'three colors and train flock = legal!') you might ask 15-20% off or so and see what people offer you.
Thanks for the reply Affe, the trouble is, it's been so long, I can't really remember too well what I paid for this stuff. From my dim recollections, I think a box ran $30-40 (Canadian) back 6-7 years ago. Does that sound reasonable? And then the 50% off from there.
When I learned that the new VC book was coming out, I sold my old VC models via ebay, most of them anyways, a few months before release. I figured, if I liked the new models and book, I'd want them. If I didn't, I wouldn't. I didn't make money, and I wasn't much of a painter back then. But I did unload them.
Thanks for the input David. If I come off sounding like I'm in this for the money, it's just that I want to try and get enough to get the Black Reach set and the space marines codex, since money is tight, and this is about the only stuff I'm willing to part with at this point to get up to date in 40k.
There are new models coming out - but that doesn't affect you much. Only the stegadon, temple guard and kroxigor in that list are being replaced.
