    Should i adjust my trade?

    I aquired an Eldar revanant titan through trade awhile ago at a bazzar and decided i would not use it as much as i would like. So i set up a trade with a store employee to get his iron hands 3k point army(painted with metal upgrade packs). Well i decided it would be best if i just gave it to him and in return he paints 1250 points of my red scorpion army.

    So first question: did i get a good trade on the titan for 1250 points of marines? (41 men, rhino, drop pod, ironclad dread is what he is going to paint)

    Now my second question: Should i have kept part of the titan to give him when he is done?

    I ask that because it has taken him about 2 months to paint my freinds 5 terminators, which he has barely started i believe. And i would like my models in a timely fashion. He showed me the titan head which he has already started working on for his army, yet has not started my Scorpions...

    So please help me out and advise me as to what i should do. Have never made a trade like this before and am not sure what the turn around on painted models should be.

    Thanks!

    I think you've made a bit of a textbook error here. Firstly, I would suggest that painting that number of models is not an adequate trade for a Revenant Titan and secondly, you should DEFINITELY have kept something back, if you knew he was unreliable. Even if you didn't, actually.

    The Iron Hands army would be alot more like fair (possibly weighted a bit too much towards you), but I think, based on what you've said, you've been had. Do you have any way of getting your titan back? I think that would be the best thing you can do.

    As a final note, I'm not sure about the part of the world you're in, but in the UK you would have a legal recourse, as a truly last measure, as you have entered into a contract with this man and if he fails to carry out his part of the deal, you can have the contract voided and your titan returned. Like I said though -desperate last measure and entirely dependent on the law where you are.

    I second the Chaplain, there - you should've gone with the Iron Hands. Personally, I'd stomp over to him and say "It's been too long - either gimme back the Titan, or give me those Iron Hands instead."
    No.

    Set a time frame for him to paint your stuff in, and it better be a damn good job in order to earn that titan.


    Look at it this way:
    What standard of paint would your scorpions have gotten with a proffesional painting studio for the price of that titan?

    In what time-frame?

    If he can't match that, then ask for the titan back, sell it off and use that cash to get your stuff done proper and on time instead.




    Never give stuff with getting naught but promises in return, you'll always get worked over one way or another.

    that won't help the current situation as he will still have the Titan, and be even more determained to keep it as he lost his job trying to get it. It was also (from what I know) a completely legal transaction, as long as he keeps up his side of the deal. Going to court would be more expensive then letting it go. But it is a Titan, a trophy for any gamer or modeler/painter, so I think the chaplain and arachnid had a few good points. Also Tutankhankh point was alright, "GIMMI MY TITAN BACK, WAAAAAGH!!!!"

    Please take this in the constructive criticism manner in which it is intended...

    Knowing what titans go for, I'd say you were nuts to let this thing out of your sight with little more than a handshake and a wink in return. I'm not sure what the Iron Hands army was worth, but I have serious doubts as to whether painting your boys is enough compensation.

    Now, I give you credit for trusting a store employee, but even that is no guarantee. I'd make a stink with him at the store, preferably in front of his manager, and like others have said, give him an ultimatum: The titan or something comparable by X date.
