Well, the day has finally come for me to get rid of my old Chaos Marine army. It's been a good army, but I haven't played it for like 2 years, and it's not really doing me much good as it is. I like the models, and when I was finished painting it, I declared it my 'best painted army, ever', which is really was, at the time.
While I've grown as a painter, this army is still quite reasonably painted, showing a lot of line highlights and even a little green stuff on the Oblits, along with some (if I do say so myself) really good skin on them.
As an addition, I have won tournaments with this army, including my first 'Best Overall' RTT (24 players no less!) along with a couple other RTT's and Team Tournaments. In fact, I've never lost a tournament I've played with them, though it was of course 2 years ago or so, before most people really understood the edition (including myself, most likely, lol)
Here's a link to the one battle report I wrote about it (preblog, lol)
I'm listing it on ebay, but mostly just want to show some pictures of the army, and link to this site itself so I don't have to pay for extra pictures :-p
Here's the link to the auction on ebay
I wish I could hold on to this old army, but the fact is, I don't have a ton of room in my house right now, and this army is very unlikely to be used by myself. I want it to actually see use. It's a worthy army, I just don't see a reason to hold on to it when I could be holding on to some money instead, lol.
So, here's some pictures of the army I'll be sad to lose :(
|The overview of what I'm selling|
|The... left side of the overview?|
|....and the right side|
|First squad of 8 Berzerkers (8 is Khorne's number, if you didn't know, haha)|
|Another 8 Berzerkers, w/ Power Fist Champ. Don't worry, they come with Rhinos, they'll be on here later. Also, Kharn. See what a Fluff Bunny I am? (HA)|
|Plague Marines, 7 of them to be exact (2 Meltaguns, 1 Champ w/ Fist)|
|Here's Belacour, a limited-edition Demon Prince. He's metal, but also a very cool sculpt. Not too common either. I dithered for a long time whether or not to sell this bad boy.|
|See? I like the skin on my oblits :-p|
|If you don't want Oblits, why not take Defilers? One is a Soul Grinder model. Both painted nurgle-esq|
|This is the first model I ever magnetized. Not sure why I did it to this guy. No weapon changes for the arms- you're stuck with pure close combat arms.|
|Heh, this is my unopened (resin) Demon Prince. It's also included.|
|The price tag says $32. Wonder how much it is these days...|
|Yay for Rhinos! One for each squad|
Well, guess that's it folks!
Adding them up with current prices for models, the breakdown is this:
Demon Prince- $35
Belacour- not for sale anymore
10x Berzerkers- $37.25
10x Berzerkers- $37.25
7x Plague Marines- $45
Defiler- $66 (seriously)
9x Obliterators- $200.25
Grand Total: $605.75
- The price does not take into account the (Rare) Belacour model
- The price does not take into account the price of the bases
- The price does not take into account the extra Berzerkers included
- The price does not take into account the cost/time/effort of my painting them all
- ....it's just the exact prices you pay for the models from GW
So, guess that's it. I think I'll start bidding at $400, with free shipping. Great deal for anyone, even taking into account the cheaper prices at places like the Warstore, etc. If nobody wants it for that low of a price, I think I'll have to find a way to keep it. It's just not worth selling for less than that.
Alright, no more sales pitch. Have a good weekend :)
ebay link, again
