Christballs. He's probably selling because he got carpal tunnel from trying to paint it all. You can see he tried his hand at painting a good number of those models and actually got them to tabletop standard.

I feel like I just watched an episode of Hoarders.

I don't understand how yo can buy that many model's and then sell them. I'm sorry but what is the guys aim here? To recoup money or to just get rid? I just think it's pure idiocy to buy that much then get rid of them.

They don't call it plasti-crack for nothing. I know people who have entire cupboards full of unassembled stuff. and boxes full of half painted minis, while they still buy more stuff to work on new projects.

If he owned a store and every time someone quit he bought them out for very little then amassing this over a few years wouldn't be that hard - the thunderhawks I would guess were bought to complete it.

Quite why I cannot guess, but maybe the guy wanted a seriously over the top display

He could have been buying them part painted off people also, would explain the seemingly haphazard look of the "collection"

100% Agree. I bought 10 Space Wolves as a present for a nephew at Christmas...

... 20 more Wolves, 20 CSM, 5 SW Termies, 5 Chaos Termies, 5 Havocs, 5 Devastator Marines, a Chaos Lord, 2 Chaos Sorcerers, Bjorn the Fell Handed, Ulrik the Slayer, 1 Chaos Predator, 1 Predator, 2 Bikes, a Hell Brute (ebay) 20 Cultists, (ebay) and numerous bits from ebay later.

Number of models fully painted = 1

Plasti-crack is definitely the right term.

I can understand the Plastic Crack addiction.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

As much as I would love to paint a full chapter, that is a lot of work.

And storage! Thats just a mental way to store figures!

Why exactly is he selling? (Besides having way more than any person could really honestly need).

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I just had a quick glance. I'm terrified that there may some older stuff in there that I'll want to get my grubby hands on......
