Default Pro-Painted = seriously?

My bro and I often play this game, and it can have hilarious consequences.

The game is as follows, search ebay or google for models which claim to be "pro-painted", laugh your arse off, then share...

I feel like this should be in the off-topic section, but I'll play!



This one makes me sad, the model and his story are really really good, but the paint doesn't do it justice. Should've thinned the paint a bit.

"Pro-Painted" but not pro-photoed...the "ebay auction WTF" thread over on Warseer is a good source of questionably painted and priced models.

While not touted as pro-painted this wave serpent is described as "There is ALOT of time put into this model."...and way too many layers of paint...


and last, but not least this quality pro-painted noise marine squad (if I paid a six year old and called him a pro):

Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)

This is good. I can now state that my armies are pro painted. They are done to much the same standard.
Should net me a couple of million on ebay. Sweet.
On a more serious note I have had a couple of real surprises on ebay. At one stage I bought a squad of chaos marines and havocs on ebay for not much more than the retail price and they were very well done.

Saw several when I was trying to find an Angron model to buy off of ebay that were listed as pro painted. Well, you can figure out why that isn't exactly true since i'm posting here, but since the bids ended, I can't seem to find them. Believe me though, even I could paint Angron to a higher standard than some of the ones I saw. Still not going to paint him until I get better at the techniques though..... which might be a while.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Ugh, I'd put unpainted minis on ebay before any of those things.

Seriously, if I saw something I wanted painted like that, I'd be telling them they'd have better luck stripping the model and selling it to someone who wants to paint it themselves (which I more often do). In the very least, you'd garner more respect this way.

My soul hurts. Real pro painters don't put it in there header anymore because of these ass clowns.

What the hell. Too much going on with that one. Hurts the eye after a while.
