Thats how I felt when I bought Asteroth...used the wings for a conversion, the rest went right into the bit box. Wasn't as cool of a model as I had initially thought lol

Serpion5 I usually do this. When I feel that a model has gotten "old," I replace it and give the old one away. Usually my conversions, and usually because I think of a way to do it better.

I bought a trygon, a carnifex and a set of dragon wings to make a nid harpy. A few months back I gave it away because I figured out how to make one better.

Angelus Censura I've been hoping for this to happen to me - but more with bits than minis. I plan on buying a bunch of random SM kits for bits as soon as an insurance claim goes through (which could be months and months as my back is showing little to no improvement). I want to create my own SM Chapter, full of fun conversions and bit bashed goodness, but being out of work for the time being, the best I can do is plan, write fluff, and plan some more. Maybe luck will find me and I will stumble upon some free goodies or win one of those addicting bullshit lotto scratchers

Kreuger Heh, I've had this happen both ways.

Once when visiting this antiques 'mall' [building with old people selling lots of their old stuff in little stalls], an older guy had a mound of old file boxes full of gaming miniatures, mostly 40k some warhammer and some other games. I picked up a large size miniature case, mounted fantasy lord of nurgle, part of an unpainted undead army, chaos chariot, and several blisters of nurglings for 30 us dollars.

And I also have a standing offer of a used tyranid army from my friend's attic. But I haven't had the time to pick it up and either repaint or sell it. I can't even pretend to keep up with my own miniature projects. I have Chaos projects stretching back several years on my desk now. =/

MidnightSun 1500pts+ of Guard, well painted, some Dark Angels (Ten of the old Terminators, they're so small!), 1500pts+ Chaos Space Marines, fairly painted, four Necron Warriors with Catachan heads on 'em, Tau battleforce, built and painted, the 2nd Ed. starter box, painted, Cityfight board.

Best Christmas present EVER.

yanlou Something similar happened to me last year, my brothers mate had some stuff that he had stored away not seen the light of day for a good few years, well he gave me them for free, searched through the salvageable stuff, got 2 chaos marine tac squads, plague marine squad, landraider, rhino, 3 oblits, 1 classic 2 current ones and a hell of alot of spares. nice boost to my army lol.

Doelago [Crosses fingers] May the same thing happen to me...

search116 I had the same thing except it was at school and he wanted a dollar for it.

coke123 I recently turned up at a mate's place, and another of my friends just gave me his 2.5-3k Space Marine army. Turned out he was moving, and didn't really want to have to deal with his Tau or Marines (the Tau went to another friend).

Midge913 I keep my fingers crossed that the same will happen to me.... The best I usually get is a good bits bin find at the FLGS.
