Default Incredilble deal.

For 60$ I have just purchased a leman russ, a basilisk, 40 guardsmen, 5 heavy weapons teams, one deathworld heavy weapon team, 3 snipers, 9 special weapon's and 3 cadian command squad boxed sets. All assembled and painted rather well, and all the bits.
Just how good of a deal was that?

You just got a great deal! Now don't break them.

On a related note, I got a Leman Russ Exterminator for $20 last year.

It's a great deal for the models...but do you really want them assembled and painted? Personally, models only really feel like they're mine when I've lavished time and effort on them to make them so. It's a fundamental aspect of the hobby for me. :-\

Same for me, I'm buying 85 Praetorians form a friend's friend for $150 they are apparently painted already but I will probably strip them and re paint for jus that reason. (Oh and 86 Praets for $150 is an excellent deal)

Me too. If I'm buying secondhand, I'll allways give preference to unassembled, or at least unpainted minis.

I think that's because I usually have a lot of minis already painted and I want my armies to have a uniform look and feel to them, and I enjoy creating a personalised force.

I'm buying a Witch Hunter Force off a friend's son, and the metals will go straight into the paintstripper, while the vehicles get the GW Chaos Black spraycan treatment to take them back to basics.

Having said all that, it sounds like you pretty much got a ready to play army for a knock down price, no wonder you're pleased.

I will admit I'm not to thrilled with the paint.
I am going to have to repaint them as they use the standard cadian theme and I use kommando khaki and chaos black.
All those models should keep me busy for some time!
