With the new guard stuff due out soon I've decided to clear out some of my old mini's via good old ebay....... But im a just going to be putting them on there unpainted......no no no that would be to easy instead im going to paint them all up and try to fund the next project(s) without spending a penny of my hard earned wages on them I'm aiming to put what ever I've painted by the end of the month on ebay around about payday time to maximise any buyers.

so there you have it prepare to see the highs and lows of my hard work going for penny's or pounds :-)

feel free to guess at the end price of each item no prizes for a correct guess im afraid but you do get to be all smug about been right :-)

I really like them. Not so much the old orcs, but I really like the mek and the runt herd/'s beard.

Personally, I think that anybody who puts a painted army up on Ebay must be mad. I have yet to paint an entire army so far and when I actually do so I will get it put it away in 3" bullet-proof glass and never take it out so...

How much stuff you going to be painting?

Those old Kommando models are great! With all it's coolness and chunkiness the new ones can't compare to those great old skool models!

dave8oy
19-03-2009, 19:39

starting to that collecting bug more of these that I paint more I wanna finish the army...... ahhhh bloody games workshop stop eating all my money!!!

Sleazy
24-03-2009, 23:18
thats a bloody nicely painted and characterful army. I've never had an ork army (one of the few) but things like this make me wanna. I recently did something similar, selling G1 transformers to fund new model projects... I intended to sell piece by piece and keep a running warseer record of what it had bought me.

In the end I sold the lot in one go to a keen collector friend and bought myself the FW chaos dragon and an armorcast reaver!

you could always buy these hint hint nudge nudge :-P


I really have far to much stuff taking up space though so these will have to go will paint a few more and sell as a complete army i think.

Got 10 boys almost ready just need highlighting and basing then on with some RT ork bikes to convert, cant believe how small the riders for these are I'll post a pic next to a new ork ASAP

Update time!!

The base's that I ordered from ebay turned up so.........

Finally found a use for these R/T ork bikes I'll post a few size comparison shots when i get chance but for those that haven't seen these in the flesh there tiny which made them ideal for grot bikes :-) this was the test model as soon as I've got the others painted I'll post pic's. ive got a squad of five to do and was quite happy with how well the new plastic grots worked with these they didn't even need to much choppin to get the poses right :-) anyway enough talk on with the pic's

dave8oy
17-04-2009, 23:53

dave8oy
20-04-2009, 23:01

(I know that there's a lot of debate over this mini I've got to admit GW really got this wrong with this one allsorts of proportion anomalies but I quite like it in a quirky way)

I've promised myself that i wont suddenly get all carried away and start painting up a full army of these (like the orks) im gonna stick with the clear out idea honest.......

07-05-2009, 16:59
Those Orks are stunning! I really love the commando minis and you've made them look even better with that paint job.

I wish I wasn't so lazy so I could do this same thing with some Lizardmen I was supposed to do for a friend 2 months ago.

The old Ork Nobz bike used the same bike frame it just had a seat for the nob instead of the guns. I think I have one in my RT orks box somewhere still :D
I really like the orks so far.. seems a shame to evilbay them.
