I bet he has not seen his ===D since he started the hobby.

Also... anyone want to make a pie chart as to where all his income goes?

My money is on something like:
96% WH40K
4% Chips

Honestly I don't know why he is selling. I sent him an email but the response I got was... well, not really lucid to be honest, so I figured to steer well clear from him.

Ha this guy popped up again!

Highlights consist of 6 Thunderhawks and 63 Rhinos + next to his ridiculous amount of marines he also has several other races...

It actually hurts to see how he treats those models - barely assembled, not painted, thrown into cardboxes like that. Goddamnit man, you paid so much money for it - Treat it with some respect!

Wow . . . that's pretty horrifying.

It really is like an episode of hoarders. I dare say the painting skill all looks about the same which suggests its one strange bastard who is really painting all of this (poorly).

I can't even imagine the type of disposable income which would be required to amass such a Smaug-like mound of warhammer miniatures. There's some Dutch guy who slumbers on a pile of warhammer figures.

The only things I can imagine are:
1) he's wealthy, has a short attention span, and megalomaniacal factors
2) he's a GW manager who buys his own stock to keep his store in business
3) He's a mental case spending his assistance checks on warhammer. (I posit this sadly having worked in a FLGS where the 1st of the month a dude would come in and basically blow his welfare check on comics and collectables. Every month.)
4) maybe it's somebody collecting second hand armies, repainting them and reselling.

Even with all the money I wanted I still would not collect this number of models. Whats the point?

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

I fear it's number 3.. I tried to contact him once as he also had 5 chapters (Yes chapters i.e. 1000 marines each) + several titans from armorcast and GW for sale, but the responses I got were just downright weird. It is a shame though, seeing as how he treats the models and how little fun he seemed to have had with him.
