Default "Tau army" Ebay Purchase- did i do well?

Hey all, just bought a Tau force for $267.00 AU, with
8x XV8s,
24 FWs (all rifles)
20 Kroot,
1 Hammerhead (partial assembly)
5 Shield drones (converted Gdrones)
18 Gun drones
1x old Ethereal

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....MEBI%3AIT&rd=1

a good buy?? with my current 1k force this should comfortably exceed 2000pts when tooled out, if i can fit most models in somewhere... the majority of the models are assembled and awaiting paint, which is mainly why i bought them..

As long as everything isn't stuck together (mainly crisis weapons), good deal.

luckily i have 40 "rare earth" magnets waiting... i can cut the weapons off and set them up for magnetic attachment

And here is was about to blow $AU600+ on a guard army... no longer going to happen- the Tau'va is the true path.... at least until i get more cash together

Are you going to be getting the extra weapons that wern't on the CS? If not, that kind of sucks since you'll be left with more CS then you'll probably need, with less weapons that what you'll need :-\.

The aussie dollar is worth roughly 90% of the american dollar, so he payed about 240$ american for the army.

As for if its a good buy, that depends. If you end up using all of it its a good buy. However I find with alot of armies on ebay your often being forced to pay for stuff clumped in together with what you want when buying a whole army.

For example, if you end up only using 3 monat crisis teams, and already have 3 in your current army, you've payed money for 8 crisis suits you arent going to use. Same with the kroot, maybe you wont use it. Taking into account stuff like that you can quickly see the money saved going down.

If you do use all of that stuff, I'd say it was a fair deal.

Ah, I saw this the other day

It's a good deal, Most of it is unpainted, which is good, and its more or less half price compared to retail. That said, some of the crisis suits pictured have illegal configurations..
