Default Best 40k Deal You've Ever Got Off Ebay?

Hey everyone.

I know an awful lot of people who build their entire armies from Units they purchase second hand on Ebay, so essentially I was just wondering?

What is the best deal on Warhammer 40k model/models you've got on Ebay or some other form of second hand sale? Or have you never bought second hand models?

I've actually been really bad, and only ever bought brand new box sets off of a mixture of GW and Wayland games, but as I've become interested in a few other systems apart from 40k, I am now learning to keep my eyes open for excellent deals on Amazon in order to be kinder to my wallet.

So like I said, share your second hand savings with the rest of us, or like me, do you just buy things officially?

I nabbed my Storm Raven for 60 bucks after taxes and shipping off eBay. Ripping good deal as far as I'm concerned, considering they're just over 100 now at the store.

Oh the list goes on...

16x4 termagants for 12 each (PP/Tax Inc) ((12 for a 4 sprues of Termagants with four models per sprue))
Hive Tyrant for 12 ((PP/Tax Inc)
Tyrant guard for 4 (PP/Tax Inc)

A few other bits and pieces, got myself a trygon and more hive guard for a quarter of the retail price and a venomthrope for a 1/3 of its original price. I buy strictly unpainted plastic and painted/unpainted metal because of it being easy to strip.

I love Ebay!

I managed to get 3 leman russ tanks(2 demolishers) and three chimeras all from the same seller in various states of completion for around $20 each. Considering russes go for over 80 and chimeras are 55 that is an outstanding deal.

It was a "Bag" of metal space marine "leaders". All of them metal.

It included but was not limited to:

x4 Space Marine Captains
x2 Sanguinary Priests
x1 Apothecary
x6 Various Veteran Sergeants
x1 2nd Edition Chaplain

And a whole lot more.

Some of them were missing an arm here and there (One had his powersword cut off from the wrist). But I'm going to be using them to start a Salamanders army once I've Stopped my CSM addiction.

Total Cost: 7.50 with P&P.

Not from eBay, but secondhand:

1x Warboss [metal]
1x Weirdboy [metal]
7x Nobs [metal]
1x Nob w/ Waaagh banner [metal]
1x Nob w/ Waaagh banner, direct only [metal]
1x Nob [plastic]
3x Burna Boyz w/ burnas [metal]
2x Gorkamorka Prospectors [metal]
1x Gorkamorka Mekboy [metal]
1x Gorkamorka Mad Dok [metal]
2x Mekboy [3rd. ed., metal]
2x Mad Dok [3rd. ed., metal]
5x Kommandos [3rd. ed., metal]
5x Killa Kans [metal]
15x Lootas NoS
1x Deff Dread [NiB, metal]
4x Trukks [2 NoS, 2 NiB]
30x Boyz NoS w/ Nob sprue
and the Ork half of the AoBR set on sprue

along with the following bitz:
Killa Kans shoota & burna bitz
9x WHFB Black Orc heads bitz
'Ard Boy (shoulder pads and iron gobs) bitz
12x sprues w/ heads, torsos, arms, & shootas

All for US$275 at one go--guy was getting rid of his army. Near as I can figure, at brand-new GW prices (for the units that still exist), this was about $650.

At the rate I paint and build, I'll be done in time for 7th ed.

That consisted of
hive tyrant with 2 guards
4 carnifex
3 biovores
12warriors
3 lictors
6 raveners(i think)
24 gaunts
16 genestealers
broodlord
12 hormagaunts
6 ravener bases
spore mines
They were just collecting dust.
