Grey Knight Squad


I bought and painted these around five years ago and have never used them in battle. So tyhey have gone on my eBay pile.

What I found amazing was the cost if you bought these new from GW. There are £33 of models here. I think I paid less than £15 (from memory so may not be entirely accurate). That's a 100% inflation rise in five years. Astonishing.

  1. and yet we still buy them all, so they know they can still raise the prices, its a vicious cycle really.

    On a side note, check out my blog at: http://forge40k.blogspot.com

  2. I finance the purchase of new minis by selling older ones on ebay (I call it recycling). It makes it less painful although admittedly my collection is slowly dwindling due to their incessant price hikes.

    Yah, the price doesn't seem to matter too much to demand. I know your blog, I am on your follower list.

    That is exactly what I do!
    It appeases the civilian authorities if she thinks the military budget is recycled.

  5. I think you should redo the bases before selling these, i feel they distract ones eyes away from the actual product. I would lose the grass, redo with sand, coat of black then drybrush with grey. Put the focus back on the figures

  14. Would you take the pen in hand, plunge right in and just do it, struggling to keep up with the twists and turns of the torrents of words that take you where they take you Buy D3 Gold? Would your plans be so extensive that you never even got to the writing Cheap D3 Gold? But if you do decide to use it, what would you do with it? How would you play the game D3 Gold Sale?
