I have a nasty habit of buying things I don’t need.
Ok, all gamers seem to suffer from similar afflictions. I’m not sure my disease is any more acute than yours; however, I do find myself buying things that I have absolutely not intention of ever using–so I’ll let you decide if I have it better or worse than you. What I mean by that is, if I find a good deal, I buy it.
Well, not just any good deal: insanely good deals.
Generally speaking, people in my area seem to sell out of armies with likely the same regularity as they do where you live. We live in a city of roughly 300,000 people, and I’d say there’s a reasonable market for Warhammer. The one thing that I can’t fathom is that the resale market here is in the pits. I’m not sure why, but nobody seems to really want to buy used models in my neighborhood.
Functionally, that really sucks if you’re trying to sell figures, but it’s awesome if you’re in the market for stuff. Frankly, I have too many models, and I shouldn’t be in the market for anything; however, when armies are going for 80-90% off MSRP, I can’t help but jump in. My thought process is that, at that rate, I can justify parting things up and selling them on Ebay. Historically speaking, I’ve generally made between 40-60% of MSRP when selling things on that site, so with enough volume, I can justify storing these things for a while.
The downside is that I just sold a bunch of crap on ebay earlier this year. It actually got the point that I could see the workbench in the garage. I’d like to keep that going, so I plan on selling these things in the near future. So, if you have an interest in any of the things listed here, hit me up and we’ll chat.
For prices, I generally stick things up on ebay for $.01 and let the market determine the price. If we’re negotiating outside of that, I generally look up sold auctions on ebay to get an idea of value and set the price from there. Keep in mind that I’m going to likely pay about 13% for ebay fees, so you can get that kind of discount at least. Care to work up a deal? Make an offer and these can all be yours!
