Default Pro Built Models

http://cgi.ebay.com/Pro-Built-Warham...item4cf575e579

Apparently the "pro painted" BS wasn't good enough. Now people are trying to overcharge for their models by calling them "pro built". Is there anyone on here who can think of an actual legitimate reason for doing this?

After taking a closer look at the model, the paint job doesn't even look that great, and I just realized that commissars come as either one or two pieces of metal.

Isn't that a pewter model? How can you build something, let alone claim to 'pro build' something thats already built when you get it?

Just idiots and people with a good sense on how to make money doing so. (Or in the case of the idiot, hoping someone else in the world is as dumb as they are.)

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Hmm, so I'm a pro now.

I just pinned my first two models yesterday (Nightbringer and Deceiver).
Now I can get a pro built tag as well.

BTW: the paintjob on that commisar sucks donkey balls.

Pro built plastic kits maybe, but not two-piece metal models.

I have one better:

Strange, but not a Stranger.

Actually his description is technically accurate, if hes gets paid to build the model he is a professional, the quality of the work is irrelevant, trust me a professional plumber fitted my house with plumbing and its been repaired many times by a amateur (me).

the paint job is bloody awful, there is always someone on ebay willing to part with there cash.

hes a fraud then, he should be burned as a Witch and flayed like the donkey lover he is, and he should be told off by his mother in front of his school friends.

Did he use a paintbrush or a toothbrush?

You can tell how long the model has lay dormant.
It's got a Goblin Green base.

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...

If that's pro, then GW should bow down at my feet and beg me to grace them with half-assed greenstuff sculpts.
