Check this out (unfortunately in dutch)

This dude is selling his collections at the moment.

Marktplaats.nl - Advertenties van boomboo uit Amsterdam

A complete chapter of Blood angels, imperial fists and ultramarines (yes that's about a 1000 miniatures per chapter)

Blood ravens, sons of sanguinius and crimson fists companies, (around a 100 each)

11 (?!) thunderhawks, not sure if they are the real deal, but still..

And he is still saying there is more to come. :wacko:

there are two reason why I don't owe so many figures, apart from money: risk of crap painting and storage problems...the very problems the guy seems to experience :p

Yeah I know, it just seems he bought the lot, spray painted everything and threw m in a box. The amount of wasted cash is staggering to be honest.

How old are these figures, I haven't seen anyone use green bases in forever... Could be something he did on his own though. It saddens me to see them all in a box that haphazardly. I mean, I don't exactly have the money to buy a battle-chest right now, but I'm at least going to do something protective for them.

Christballs. He's probably selling because he got carpal tunnel from trying to paint it all. You can see he tried his hand at painting a good number of those models and actually got them to tabletop standard.

I feel like I just watched an episode of Hoarders.

I don't understand how yo can buy that many model's and then sell them. I'm sorry but what is the guys aim here? To recoup money or to just get rid? I just think it's pure idiocy to buy that much then get rid of them.

They don't call it plasti-crack for nothing. I know people who have entire cupboards full of unassembled stuff. and boxes full of half painted minis, while they still buy more stuff to work on new projects.

If he owned a store and every time someone quit he bought them out for very little then amassing this over a few years wouldn't be that hard - the thunderhawks I would guess were bought to complete it.

Quite why I cannot guess, but maybe the guy wanted a seriously over the top display :)

He could have been buying them part painted off people also, would explain the seemingly haphazard look of the "collection"

100% Agree. I bought 10 Space Wolves as a present for a nephew at Christmas...

... 20 more Wolves, 20 CSM, 5 SW Termies, 5 Chaos Termies, 5 Havocs, 5 Devastator Marines, a Chaos Lord, 2 Chaos Sorcerers, Bjorn the Fell Handed, Ulrik the Slayer, 1 Chaos Predator, 1 Predator, 2 Bikes, a Hell Brute (ebay) 20 Cultists, (ebay) and numerous bits from ebay later.

Number of models fully painted = 1

Plasti-crack is definitely the right term.

LOL

As much as I would love to paint a full chapter, that is a lot of work.

And storage! Thats just a mental way to store figures!

Why exactly is he selling? (Besides having way more than any person could really honestly need).

I just had a quick glance. I'm terrified that there may some older stuff in there that I'll want to get my grubby hands on...... :read:
