Price Check on Epic (Marines, Squats, Chaos, Eldar, & Bugs) and BFG (Orks, Chaos, & ???)

Ok, so I recently purchased a big lot of 40k stuff from a friend and hidden within it was a box of Epic (and a few Battlefleet Gothic Models)–which is coincidentally where I got most of the stuff from the Great Ebay Sell-off of Fall 2015.  The thing is that I’ve never played either game and realistically have zero interest in them.  So, obviously I’m looking to sell them.

The thing is, I don’t know what they’re worth (or in the case of the BFG stuff, what they even area), and that’s where I’m hoping you come in.  Does anyone out there know what these things are and/or what they’re worth?  I’m happy to put them up on ebay and let the market dictate the costs (and if the completed auctions on ebay are at all accurate, I could do fairly well in doing so), but that takes effort and time.  If someone wanted to buy the whole shebang from me, I’m always welcome to offers (the same is true if someone only wanted the BFG stuff or just the Epic stuff).

I sorted the stuff by army (for the most part) and tried to take detailed pictures of everything.  The biggest question marks are in the BFG stuff (and yes, I know that some of that isn’t actual BFG stuff–I think that’s a starship enterprise in there).  Any info you can provide is appreciated.

And now, the pictures:

  1. Quite a haul you have there.

    Regarding the BFG stuff:
    You have what looks like ~5 blisters worth of fighters and mines. I think that the assault boats (the bigger longer ones 4 to a sprue) are more rare, but all of those should sell pretty well.

    The first box of “Fleet stuff” has mostly what looks like Brigade games/ GZG games stuff, which is to say not BFG. The large tank looking things are probably either 15mm tanks, or super heavies like BOLO/OGRE tanks. Also BFG bits (wings etc), possibly including a light cruiser, and parts of something large.

    Second box is BFG, top row chaos plastic cruisers (2), and the guns etc for those are in the middle. next row looks like a few chaos escorts of two classes. The metal bridge piece in the lower right looks to be from a grand cruiser, which might explain that larger mystery hull in the previous box. I have never seen the bitz for that, so hard to say. Lower left looks like Ork gun escorts.

    If you wanted to spread out the contents of those last two boxes and take new pictures, I might be able to help you figure them out.

    Hope that helps.

  2. Wow, that’s a lot of cool stuff! If my brother still lived in the US I’d make you an offer and have you ship stuff to him.

    For your info, I don’t think you’ve got much BFG stuff. In the first blue box photo you’ve got things I don’t recognise in the first two slots; in the third an Imperial cruiser – can’t see the bits to know exactly which one. In the bottom right box you’ve got another one which looks like Mechanicum cruiser. I think actually the first one I couldn’t identify may be a Mechanicum cruiser too. The middle bottom slot has an Imperial frigate – a Sword or a Firestorm. Everything else in the other slots looks like its for/from other games I’m not familiar with.

    In the second blue box you’ve got approx. 2 plastic chaos cruisers (not worth very much I’d think), approx. 6 Chaos frigates (possibly 3 of each of the two main ones – the Raider and Idolator, I think). In the bottom left hand slot you’ve got 6 ork frigates. If you wanted to lay these out and take better photos of the bits I might be able to identify them for you.

    You’ve got 5 photos of metal BFG sprues. The 5th is obviously orbital mines. The second is thunderhawk gunships. The other three are too small for me to make out, but I’m sure are either fighters or bombers. Probably imperial, but I don’t remember what the chaos ones looked like.

    You’ve got a _lot_ of Epic stuff. I wouldn’t think the plastic Warlord titan is worth very much as although they have nostalgia value and some of us like the design, the models were not actually great and if they’re not in pristine condition they’re not as attractive to work with.

    I haven’t tried buying Epic stuff on Ebay so have no idea what things normally go for, but you have substantial numbers of things and lots of plastic still on sprue.

    Not sure if that’s much help!

    • I’m sure it’s all helpful. I’ll try to get pictures of the BFG stuff up soon–that’s where the biggest help will come in for sure.

      How sure are you that those are thunderhawks? I haven’t heard anyone else say that…

      • Hmm, on second thoughts no, I don’t think they are. Actually I think they’re shark assault boats. I recognised them as troop transports and stupidly jumped to them being thunderhawks (which definitely do exist in the game as Space Marine general purpose fighter/bomber/transport ‘aircraft’), when in fact they are Imperial Navy assault boats.

        The others are probably fury interceptors or starhawk bombers, but I can’t see them well enough to work out which is which.
