I once traded an Eldar Falcon for a 1,250 point Tau army (barely painted, in basically mint condition). It was his idea, too!

I have given away armies and been given armies.

Just today I was picking up a window AC from a friend at his storage place and he hands me a plastic bin with at least 2000pts of 40k Orks and 2000pts of Dark Elves (both mostly painted & partialy in pieces) and says "Take these if ya want them, I don't play any more, I know you'll use them or give them to someone who will". That's just how we are, we'd rather see game stuff get used then sit on a shelf or in storage.

"Most wars are wars of contact, both forces striving into touch to avoid tactical surprise. Our's shall be a war of detachment. We are to contain the enemy by the silent threat of the vast, unknown desert...." T.E. Lawrence

20 cadians (plastic) including 20 grenade launchers, flamers, vox sets and helmets, 1 Vindicare assassin, a culexus assassin, 1 metal 2nd ed sentinel and 10 metal rough riders (with sgt and standard bearer model - the old RT models with space-mongol hats) for $20.

So, it could almost be said that I paid full price for the Vindicare and got the rest for free.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

He does win.

I don't have individual scores like most of the replies on this thread but I have managed to collect 30 Wraithguard for about $10 each.

My most recent catch: bought a 2K Tyranid army including a Tyrant, Trygon, and two of the new Space Hulk Genestealers with Battlefoam 1520 case and custom Tyranid foam for $400.

Any more I like bargain hunting more than buying new models. Something about the thrill of the hunt.

I was given about 2000pts (mostly metal) of Dwarfs, about 600pts eldar a fire warrior squad, a necron warrior squad, and a lotr troll from a friend who decieded to quit playing, for free.

other than that I would probably guess at my 18 gutter runners and 3 assassins for 50p + 80p P&P on ebay
