Where have people successfully sold models? I have some I am just definitely not interested in and I just want to sell them. I've never done this, though.

I am having good success in various groups on Facebook - Much more than on eBay in fact. But those two are most likely your best options

The only models I've ever regretted buying were ones based around some rule I thought was cool instead of the rule of cool, and those ones usually have decent resale value anyway (I'm looking at you, vanilla Hammernators). I sell stuff that I can replace with cooler new models (like the new BA Tacs and Termies) but keep pretty much everything else. I also have about 5k in models that is basically auxiliary to my main BA collection and frequently sell those models (that I got in sweet deals as add-ons mostly) to fund the newest shiny GW's come up with.

Did I play my BA Tacticals or Death Company in 5th edition? Never. Do I use them in every single game I play now? Absolutely. Shit, I even started using Dante again and I haven't used him since my first game of 5th around 5 years ago, and before that it was likely 3rd edition. I've owned that model for around 20 years!

At least put them on display.

Absolutely. Granted, I could play a 'better' BA army out of the vanilla 'dex...but why the hell would I? Unless you're at a tournament winning shouldn't be the reason you're playing the game. Have fun! Play against people who feel the same!

If you love the army (fluff and models you own), keep it. If you put effort into the models and you can see the history of your hobby in that army, keep it. If it goes to plasic, incorporate the plastic into your army. If after you've done that you strongly dislike the old models: sell them to buy more fancy new plastic!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

People will always love the old models too, OOP just screams "MOAR MONEY!" in the price to sell them at.

I'm torn on thus issue, too. In the past, I've regretted getting rid of armies. I got rid of my first WFB army (Chaos Dwarfs) and regret it to this day. I got rid of my first 40K army (Eldar) and wound up buying them all over again. After that I just stored an army I got tired of, in the belief I would probably come back to them one day.

Now, I've soured so much on WFB and 40K that I'm seriously considering just selling off the multiple armies I own. It's been a couple years since I played either game and almost as long since I bought anything. All my gaming time and money is spent on other systems now and with each passing month it seems less and less likely I will ever play WFB(AoS) or 40K again. .
