Honestly I don't know why he is selling. I sent him an email but the response I got was... well, not really lucid to be honest, so I figured to steer well clear from him.

Wow . . . that's pretty horrifying.

It really is like an episode of hoarders. I dare say the painting skill all looks about the same which suggests its one strange bastard who is really painting all of this (poorly).

I can't even imagine the type of disposable income which would be required to amass such a Smaug-like mound of warhammer miniatures. There's some Dutch guy who slumbers on a pile of warhammer figures.

The only things I can imagine are:
1) he's wealthy, has a short attention span, and megalomaniacal factors
2) he's a GW manager who buys his own stock to keep his store in business
3) He's a mental case spending his assistance checks on warhammer. (I posit this sadly having worked in a FLGS where the 1st of the month a dude would come in and basically blow his welfare check on comics and collectables. Every month.)
4) maybe it's somebody collecting second hand armies, repainting them and reselling.

Even with all the money I wanted I still would not collect this number of models. Whats the point?

I fear it's number 3.. I tried to contact him once as he also had 5 chapters (Yes chapters i.e. 1000 marines each) + several titans from armorcast and GW for sale, but the responses I got were just downright weird. It is a shame though, seeing as how he treats the models and how little fun he seemed to have had with him.

You guys have me morbidly curious, what was so weird about his responses?
Well it was mostly incoherent, half sentences through the mail. When I texted him about his earlier stuff I got a reponse that he didn't really know what he wanted with it and that I should come by his house to look at the stuff. Couldn't be arsed at the time but it just gave off a weird vibe .

Hmmm, probably better for the better then. This indeed looks like a bit of mania to me.

A guy owns that many little plastic toy soldiers, many of which appear to have never been painted or even assembled, and you were surprised that he was a little weird? ;)

I think this guy is perhaps a modern day witch from Hansel & Gretel. He lures in the gamers with deals on warhammer miniatures then eats them. Watch out if he has some crazy oven for casting or something!

.... but thats quite an idea...
No one would ever think of such a motive or a way to murder someone :O
Genius or madman?
Only one way to find out send someone in and see what happens
I wonder if he lives in a creepy house?

Well if you know where and when to sell such things you can make quite a lot of money. I sold my entire collection of Magic: The Gathering Cards for roughly $1,628 USD to a collector looking for cards to resell (specifically all my "Champions of Kamigua" sets."
Some of the more talented nodelists/painters could probably sell there work for lots of money provided they had the time/space/money.

My only quam on these is that they look old....like 3rd/4th Edition old. Only a true 40k collector is going to want to invest in these; and good luck trying to sell a box of random crap(what a horrendous crime against the hobby that is). He should take some more photo's of individual models so that use buyers can judge the quality, age, and wear/tear of the group when making our purchase.

BTW STORMXIR, that is an awesome frick'in photo you found there(the Creepy House)
