The thing that actually saddens me, is that somewhere in the world, some guy might really buy this and think he has a pro painted army

Here are some gems that I found while randomly browsing the web:

60$ for a Rhino?! It's not even like it has some awesome free-hands on it or anything.

This guy took the "Salamanders" concept a bit too litterally, but its not so badly painted. I think I can achieve the same level of painting:

Such Propaint, very Blood Angels, many wow:

Sorry for necroing the thread, but this was one I felt you'd enjoy.

Here's the link to the eBay auction

Games Workshop Space Marine Terminator Librarian 1994 OOP Pro Painted RARE | eBay

Yours for only 14.99! Bargain!

normtheunsavoury - I'd much rather have a stack of tattoos and other mods on my body than a suit of fucking armour in the corner I once pranced around a carpark in like a cunt.

I agree that the seller shouldn't have put "pro painted" in the title. But if you scroll down he explains a LOT better why it is as it is.
Here is the copy/paste:
"This was painted by an Ex-GW staff member who has been gaming for years and who has entered lots of competitions so his painting is to a high standard. This model is not finished but has been undercoated in black, then the main green colour has been added with high and low green lights. The finer details have not been added yet and that is for the buyer to do and make their own."

Probably a kid who has barely painted anything. But who was paid by someone's mom to paint their minis. =P
