love the bone orks, especially the price tags - kids, just cause you spent hours on it don't make it valuable

Equally as enjoyable is how awful some photos themselves are, out of focus, far away, terrible lighting (not being a snob, there's acceptable lighting and then straight up BAD lighting).

Are these people even trying!!

Not quite marked as pro-painted (and only asking for 0.99 for it). I'm no great artist, but I did laugh when I saw this listed as 'well painted'...

Not pro painted, but I do believe this must be shared:

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a good laugh about what people consider "pro-painted"

When a friend of mine decided to throw his decently painted Space Marines for sell, I told him to mark it as "pro" and charge an extra $30. Seems to be the trend.

How about "Pro-painted terrain"? Well, the rocks are "natural", so the only painted parts are the bases... for only 130$.

Wow, that is a new one on me - I guess I must be an uber-pro terrain painter as I paint the whole thing

edit:

well painted seems to yield some even broader definitions of both painted and in this case "well"

Again, not BAD, the edge highlighting with blue is actually pretty interesting, just not 'pro'.
