Default Just sold my Marines

Hiya, I just sold my Marines to my dad for 100 euros.

They contain more or less this:

Commander
Librarian
Shrike

5 Termies

20 Marines

5 Assault Marines

Baal Predator

Is this a good price?

Cheers! ;D

100 euros? That's 130$ roughly right so. 2 tactical boxes 70$ 5 termies 45$ 5 assult 25$ predator40$ comander 20$ librarian 10$ shrike15$

For a grand total of [glow=red,2,300]225$[/glow] I apologize in saying that was a horrible deal on your part. More or less, was that everything you sold? He got a great deal almost 100$ off... You may want to renegotiate the price.

that would depend on the figures health

are they unpainted or slobby painted?
loads of conversions? if so, are they good or bad?
missing parts?

Id say its quite a good deal, 50% of the merchant price is quite good when you sell minis!

unless you are one of those professional painters, you got a decent amount for them. I would have personally asked for another 20. then again it is your father, and usually the parents help to buy said models for you. if he did buy any for you then you made an exceptional deal.

Truly it is all down to the quality of the paint work and the condition of the minis...

On second thought I agree with that. e.g. you could buy 1000$ worth of marines that are horribly painted and assembled for maybe 150...

Well from someone who does sell stuff on Ebay now and then I can say the market is drying up. I have won a few GD from years back but now everyone selling on Ebay states their models are professionally painted, expertly painted etc yet most of them haven't ever won a GD. At one time I could get 5-6 times the price of a model once painted now I might get 2-3 times the value only because of the sheer amount of painted models now being offered. My repeat customers know me well but just auctioning something on Ebay is tough

Well, even he sells it cheap, but he is selling it to his dad. So even if he wants to up the stakes, his dad is the one who gives him the money to buy those miniatures to begin with.
