Title: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Stormwind on May 06, 2013, 07:53:40 PM

Was watching this and other Epic Eldar items.

4 Wave Serpents for £30?  That's utterly bonkers.

I think what you'll see is a burst of speculative buying from GW by people who immediately try to flip it over onto eBay. Followed by a crash for minis of limited interest. Eventually, the prices will come back and plateau. If they're high enough, you'll see the occasional recasts mixed in. Much like we see for other in-demand minis like HE Swordmasters, dragon princes, Juan Diaz steeds of slaanesh, etc.

Of course, the speculators might well end up sitting on a load of metal. I see loads of HE and UD warmaster minis sitting on ebay all the time looking for a home. Either they ask for too much and don't sell, or have to unload below retail price. Or they're reduced to shenanigans like making false claims that their minis are discontinued. I suppose now that they are discontinued, the price on widely available stuff like that will go up.

The key unknown is how the other manufacturers will react. If someone like a Eureka jumps in and fills the niches that GW has dominated, then the rare/OOP GW minis will still be premium items. If Warmaster and 10mm (not the same thing, obviously) both die out, then the prices will drop as people give up and sell their collections.

Forgeworld Tau for BFG is going for 4x roughly. I was on yesterday and one battleship was selling for £77. Dollars ::) for some reason it keeps changing the icon to pounds :/.

It's even more crazy when you consider how awful those Wave Serpent sculpts are.  At least the originals from second edition look good.  I can't believe that anyone would pay that much for those things.

On Ebay UK alone, about £3000 has been spent on BFG auctions in the past 7 days. There are some truly insane bids going in as well as some bargain 'buy it now' which I've regrettably missed out on.
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Geep on May 16, 2013, 02:07:28 AM
I was one of the people who pushed the bid up that high, and the reason- A pack of 2 of those wave serpents direct from GW here are $33 AU. That's over 21 pounds, and that's after the Aussie dollar has been dropping in price for a week.

So I consider 4 of them for that price a decent bargain  :(

BFG is going absolutely nuts! Seems to be worst in the UK.

New edition revenant titans went for £50. =-<

I've got a spare pair of FW warhounds at least - the thing is that I just want to swap, not swell and inflate the market.  There are some obvious scalpers on ebay at the minute, people suddenly selling the kind of stock FW was running down last month.

the most interesting thing is to see how people sell things on ebay labeled as "OOP! RARE!", but which still are available the regular way.

example: vengeance grand cruiser. is already above normal price on ebay, and i ordered one on the GW website, and it was sent yesterday, no problems.

It's a touch frustrating, on this side of the pond, to see BFG selling on ebay.com for pretty reasonable prices without the option of international shipping, compared to the crazy amounts stuff is going for in the UK.

Some of the Epic stuff seems to be going for stupid amounts - but I just won 4 crossbow units and 1 pistolier unit for Warmaster Empire for only £20 or so!

I didn't and had no intention of getting an SM fleet. Then two battlebarges and 3 strike cruisers fell into my lap so now I'm torn on whether to do a 4th GW fleet (Imperial, Chaos, Eldar. Will do firestorm for necrons, bitz conversions for orks, dark eldar and nids). I'm certainly not going to pay those prices (and am seriously baffled at anyone spending that much money on them, it's mindboggling what some of the stuff is going for!

one seller who has pissed me off seriously is blackwater's miniatures (username "blackwater_hollow").

they bought a crapload of ships from GW just to sell them for the double, triple, or whatevermultiple price than it was before.  >:(

examples:
-dauntlesses for 75 bucks.
-emperor for 155 bucks.
-a SINGLE falchion class escort for 35 bucks (wtf.)
-single (!) imperial plastic cruiser for 55 bucks.
-FW GK strike cruiser for 125 bucks. (holy shit. this is the most ridiculous :o )


plain moneymaking off of other peoples misfortune.

people like that guy make me be sad that i cant punch people through the screen.
i am usually a very calm person, but this guy really, really makes me want to punch him in the face.

Yes FM, I noticed exactly the same with some WM and some Epic blisters.

A bunch of Eldar Super Heavies were dumped and of course went for like £34 each or something.

Does make me angry.

Also the same with some Forge World stuff - bunch of Epic flyers all appearing overnight at silly prices.

Post by: Stormwind on September 08, 2013, 09:36:46 PM
Yeah that's a little bonkers.

Some Empire stuff went at between £5 and £10 each.

I won recently:

Chaos Knights £8.50
Chaos Mounted Marauders £5
Chaos Dragon Ogres £5
Trolls £6.70
Empire Skirmishers £6.23

More than I would have paid before The Crash but I felt still not madness.  I only want one unit of Trolls as I like the models! Missed out on Empire Handgunners which I really want but have none of. :-X

Needless to say, I am very happy with the 10 cruisers I picked up at £20 for the lot.

Thing is some of use have a large imperial fleet, a small ork and chaos fleet and no eldar that wants to be rectified as soon as possible which means paying more then normal

For example I have 7 chaos cruisers 9 escorts but no battleships :'(

Also I have an emperor but no retribution and I've always wanted one and I haven't seen one go or less then £30 recently :'(

It's crazy that a single common blister costs that much when today I managed toget a unit of elite handgunners, knights of the blazing sun, an extra unit of knights and handgunners, a character pack, three strips of Grail knights, 3 swordmasters and 3 kislev winged lancers all for £18.

And Tuesday I got 2 units of HE spearmen and 2 units of skeletons for £8.

Seems like people miss the gems and advertise the more common items for crazy prices.

I was looking at that auction, Scaley, I didn't recognise the Knights of the Blazing Sun - I assumed it would go for loads of money and stopped watching it. :-X

When people put up photos of grab bags like that, sometimes we're not sure what condition they're in and we feel leary of them.  When we see something in blister nicely laid out, we assume that it's going to be in perfect condition.

I didn't notice they were knights of the blazing sun until after id won as I was mainly after the elite handgunners and more knights would have rounded off my army, but when I examined the front unit a lot closer you can see the difference in the two units of knights.

just a warning about one of the sellers on e-bay called sneakystavern or sneakysroleplaytavern (its one of them or something like that)

it seems he's one of the people whose trying to make as much as he can from the end of specialist games, his product descritions don't match the product and the photos are taken so as to hide any or most of the damage

i just got some chaos cruisers from him and i'm not impressed with the amounts of damage, there aren't even any flying stands

Thanks for the heads up, Connahr, does he mostly have BFG?
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: connahr on October 18, 2013, 04:23:51 PM
some BFG, some other specialist games stuff, the vast majority seems to be 40K stuff

nearly all of it is second hand but is listed as new, unused, unopened and undamaged

Report him and leave severely negative feedback. Item significantly not as described springs to mind.

Post by: Jimmy Zimms on October 19, 2013, 12:49:24 AM
yeah that's probably going to run him afoul of the buyer protection. selling something that isn't new (which also means undamaged and in box/container and must be complete) is a big no-no. If they're selling it as used and note something along the lines of "everything pictured" then it's kosher.
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: connahr on October 19, 2013, 10:53:58 AM
well i le-mailed him saying that there was more damage than listed and that his description was innacurate, haven't heard back yet

only thing is that if i open a case about it, i have to return the ships, which i don't want to do
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Blindhorizon on October 19, 2013, 05:41:38 PM
You don't have to return the ships you can just ask for a cash compensation. If you pad $25 bucks you can just say you want $10 back on the ticket. Ebay will take your request into account when they look at your ticket if it goes that far. And you can always deny the return and just keep the item.

This is not exactly what you all want but it is something.
Especially for the guys collecting marines, is less than half of the price people usually pay.

Does anyone know who 'Gusman' is on eBay?

I've received stuff from him before and been happy with it, but this lot makes me suspicious- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warmaster-Casualty-Marker-Lot-OOP-Includes-the-rare-A-Artillery-Games-Workshop-/271314510560?pt=Games_US&hash=item3f2b9ae2e0 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warmaster-Casualty-Marker-Lot-OOP-Includes-the-rare-A-Artillery-Games-Workshop-/271314510560?pt=Games_US&hash=item3f2b9ae2e0)
It's identical to a lot he sold earlier and received good feedback for (so it wasn't a case of the buyer breaking the deal)- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warmaster-Casualty-Marker-Lot-OOP-Includes-rare-A-Artillery-Games-Workshop-/271292516119 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warmaster-Casualty-Marker-Lot-OOP-Includes-rare-A-Artillery-Games-Workshop-/271292516119)
I'd like to get the 'A' marker, but whether original or recast I still suspect this auction will go way over my head.

As an additional oddity- Baseball, phone, syringe, bucket? and warmaster all in the one auction! -http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/boys-TOYS-LOT-T-BALL-THOMAS-WARMASTER-NEW-METAL-PIECES-NEW-PARENTS-PHONE-BALLOON-/230942675887?pt=Outdoor_Toys_Structures_US&hash=item35c54193af (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/boys-TOYS-LOT-T-BALL-THOMAS-WARMASTER-NEW-METAL-PIECES-NEW-PARENTS-PHONE-BALLOON-/230942675887?pt=Outdoor_Toys_Structures_US&hash=item35c54193af)

Post by: Aquahog on December 04, 2013, 01:09:56 PM
And use the same army for two lists? That's a good way to fight the Ebay pricing. :)

The lists are quite similar to be honest, they could easily have been the same list with options for dark or high elven armies just like the Peloponnesian lists in Warmaster Ancient Armies e.g. That being said I quite prefer the Dark Elf list myself in spite of Harpies vs Eagles, no 3+ shooting and no re-rolled spells. I'll take Cold Ones, double shooting light cavalry and the Dominion spell any day over that.

That was actually a rather reasonable ending price I'd say. Less than what it would have cost to order it from GW last Spring at least.

Yeah, I calculated it at about 52 blister packs, or £450 worth if bought new from GW.

That is exactly the point. I don't have that sum to put in figs at this period of the year. Xmas is too costy.

But in a point of view of a blister price, yes, it was a good bargain. Id the winner take time to relist everything, he will re sell everything for three time this price easily.

Shameless scalping.  These are still available from the GW website for £8.70 each.  That's why I went and bought 4, because I knew someone would come and take the piss by putting them up at this price in a month or two.

I think one of the dwarf army lists has an option to mount a character in a zeppelin. The character then can't issue orders, but gives a bonus to nearby artillery (as he's a 'spotter'). Other than that the only rules I've heard of are to use them as proxy gyrocopters.

Frick, they look a lot like bad recasts. Even the official forgeworld models didn't have that much flash (compared to top notch castings like those from wintermans or mangozac).

Ogres went for £11 and £16 lately.  It is weird how certain "common" blisters go for cheap and others leap up.

It's simply how many of them are round. Most of the time the later armies were avilable only via direct order and were also considered being worse sculpts (e.g. VC, DE). When they were avilable, only few people bought them. That's why they are now rarely seen on eBay and why the prices go so high IMO ...

I agree. The rare ones seem to be VC, Araby, Skaven and Daemons so this backs up your theory.

At some point I must tot up a list of the original GW stuff I've got stashed in the loft. Having had a quick look on ebay, I must have hundreds of pounds worth of gear up there! If ever times get hard...

I reckon by selling no more than 4 or 5 GW units, I'd raise enough cash to buy a whole army of proxy figures from other manufacturers!

Is it worth putting together a listing on here of the various units and how much they go for both unpainted and painted? Is there much of a difference in price between the two conditions? Maybe a sub-forum in each Specialist Game forum?
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Stormwind on January 30, 2014, 08:08:11 PM
Honestly I'm not interested in tracking non-rare units.  Marell Le Fou did some research on it and keeps spreadsheets of rare unit prices.

I have been looking for Warmaster every day in passing on eBay for 2 years so I can say with authority that the blisters have gone up in price, even for common armies, but it's still very variable.

The link I posted to was £26, but an IDENTICAL blister from the same seller ending at the same time went for only £11 or so.

People who are inefficent in their buying and searching habbits on eBay are the ones who make silly bids. =-P

I still work on them and keep them available for anyone asking for a price or any information i have.

I have been looking for Warmaster every day in passing on eBay for 2 years so I can say with authority that the blisters have gone up in price, even for common armies, but it's still very variable.

I do the same and i have the same opinion.

On old OOP stuff, prices stayed approx unchanged, with a serious diminution on very rare stuff. Hammerers went for more than 370$ for one unit two years ago, and several time more than 200$. Today, they sell for 70-80. Same for Savage orcs, for example.

On recently OOP stuff, prices are gone mad. Dark Elves, Skavens, Brets and Lizardmen are going for crazy prices. Around 60-70$ per unit, NIB or not. Daemons where going on the same direction but they are more frequently seen on ebay, so i think their price is a little bit under the other four armies i have mentionned. Araby and Vampire Counts stuff we have not seen for weeks now (or very few units only), and the market is so versatile that i do not know for what they would go today. But i think it would be the same : prices around 70$ per blister.

I explain that this way : oldies interest collectors, while recent stuff interest collectors and players. More interested people, so prices go up.

That is why you can buy Dark-Elves Corsairs for a lower price than Witches or Cold-One Riders...

One year ago, when GW stopped SG, I thought prices would not reach what they are today, or that prices would go up, but only for a small time. But i was wrong. It's something pleasant, in a certain way, that WM reach such a post-mortem interest, but it's sad in the same time for it is too late to keep it alive.

Anyway, compared to 28mm prices, we are far far over classical prices... Mordheim prices do the same, staying high.

The day GW ceased SG, people rushed to buy everything available, even at high price, and it's still the case today.

As Stormwind says, even former common units go for crazy prices. Orcs and Gobs mainly. Undead, Empire, High-Elves and Dwarves remain lower. Chaos is between the two it seems. But it can change very quickly.

I try to keep tracks of who buy what, and i frequently see the same winners names again and again. I mean for any armies. So it would significate collectors still hold the top of the won items ? Or heavy players ? Hard to be sure. The only thing i'm sure of is that there are people making "now rare" armies and they are ready to pay a very very high price for them :)

The rule remain that with patience, you can have everything at low price... But it's harder than it was.

The prices are highly dependent on the postage option. Lots of WM stuff is UK only and that makes huge difference in the final price.

Post by: Geep on February 01, 2014, 03:27:42 AM
Urgh... Nothing annoys me more than seeing things I've been after for a while come up on eBay, only to find the seller refuses to post to my country. It's frustrating when they say, 'no, I won't post to your country because the postage cost is too high', but I'm the one who actually pays the postage cost...

I have seen so many auctions go for cheap prices because of that. People should always give the option for international postage, even at silly prices, and let the bidders decide.
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Aquahog on February 02, 2014, 09:44:27 PM
I agree. However since I'm sellng out of Sweden I have realised that people have started giving me low ratings on postage costs when I'm in fact most often discounting up to ten percent of the actual postage cost. That in combination with people being afraid of buyers claiming not having received the goods is probably the most common reason sellers won't list for an overseas client.
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Big Red on February 02, 2014, 10:28:34 PM
Easy solution - only offer 'signed for' or 'registered post' only.  It puts in a level of surety that helps protect buyer and seller alike.

I often ask the seller if the would consider international postage and more often than not, they usually allow me to bid.
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: marell le fou on February 02, 2014, 11:14:57 PM
Same opinion. When i see seller do not propose to ship outside their country, i ask if it's possible and they say ok most of the time.

When they don't want, i ask i they could allow me to bid with a delivery adress to a friend in the country. People from various forums always welcome this type of service. I have found a person in the US and the UK who are even ready to bid for me and ship to me the stuff. The simplest is then to say what price i'm ready to put, he bids, we wait the end of the transaction and i paypal him if i won. Then, he pays the sellers. And then ship the stuff to me.

They are not very thought after. Mainly because few months ago, a seller proposed something like 10 blisters for 25$ if i remember well. Several persons bought one or two. Someone took the rest. And they will probably reappear slowly on the market.

In a reverse case of caveat empor...

I bid £5 each on what seemed to be single blisters of Chaos Marauders and Chaos Warriors.

The seller had only posted a picture of a single blister as most Warmaster auctions are.  When I recieved the package it was super heavy and had SIX blisters in, 3 of Marauders 3 of Warriors.

The seller had stated in the description that each auction was for multiple blisters. I only bid £8 on Chaos Knights when that auction was for FIVE blisters. Hrrrrngh.  Oh well.

Sorry for the late response, I've been away for a week. Signed for is an excellent option that I often upgrade to without charging the clients extra if they bought something expensive as I like to keep my money then. However, listing at the signed for rate will likely only make my postage ratings drop.

If you are unaware of the Primarchload, I would suggest setting aside a few hours and checking out this thread: http://www.tacticalwargames.net/taccmd/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=25466

The man has what must be the largest collection of Epic models in the world (I am not exaggerating). He has something like 12 Imperator Titans.

Post by: marell le fou on May 15, 2014, 04:51:39 AM
A small point on Warmaster stuff.

Some items may go for a high price but globaly i have noted a serious down of old OOL stuff (i mean former alternate units). Some are still going for a high price but they are (very) rare. Very few of them are valuated around 100$, when it had became a classical reference of price two years ago.

It may be because the game is not supported anymore and collectors have turned their head from Warmaster range.

Or it could be too that most warmaster collectors have decided that playing was more important than alt units, and they have focused on the core units (and are running for skaven, dark elves, daemons etc).

I have noted too that Bretonnian stuff is selling again for a "correct" price, around 20$ per unit (more or less) those last weeks. Only three months ago, nothing could be find under 30-40 or more.

Lizardmen seem to go for prices around 30-35$. At the end of last year (oct), they where going for more expensive prices.

Daemons are between 25-30$. Hordes at frequently more than that. Especially Khorne. This army is more or less stable. Maybe a little less expensive than few months ago.

Dark elves are very expensive, nearly 40$ per blister for months now.

Skaven and Araby go for the highest price i think. Frequently over 50$. Rat Ogres and Jezzail are less expensive.

Most of us established gamers have most of what we "need" by now I guess and don't feel the need to be 'gouged' by silly prices methinks. There are also less and less new gamers I'm guessing as the game is no longer supported by GW.

I expect prices to slowly drop and drop over the coming years.....   More for us to hoover up at cheap prices! :)

Yes, but they where mainly Jezzail and Ogres, and those blisters have always been cheaper than the rest.

Same opinion. Prices will drop i think. And quantity of players, halas :(

I think the old OOP range will be the first to lose it's importance. Collectors will be interested in other ranges, probably.

I'm unsure what it mean for us. On one hand, the val of our figs will drop. On the other hand, we will be able to play High-Elves with 6 Swordmasters unit, 4 Phenix guard and every cavalry unit Prince Dragons :)

Two Bretonnian command units went for only £14 today.  A pegasus hero and a command blister. I couldn't believe that I'd missed it.  Slightly cheaper than it would have costed from GW.  All because it was mislabelled as an Empire command group.

On the other hand, £45 for a single blister of Epic scouts:

Post by: stevothedivo on August 14, 2014, 03:02:45 PM
Hello gents
Very interesting reading on this thread - I'm new to this forum but my Specialist Games collections are fairly respectable in size and scope and I've been playing some years now.

In years past I'd seize every opportunity to jump on the GW hate/flame bandwagon - today I reason it's simply not an issue for me as I don't buy GW products nor - since they dropped Specialist Games - even play the company's games. So what's there for me to argue over?

Ebay has been pulling some quite questionable stunts (like their Global Shipping Program, a scam that I know would be illegal at least here in Australia but seems to be operating quite well in the US for some unknown reason...) so my solution is two-fold

1. Bartertown and other trade/sell forums can still render some rare gems at reasonable prices. I avoid FleaBay like the plague. To me it's like Target - I go there to buy my socks and jocks, but if I want a suit or a pair of runners I go to a clothing or shoe store

2. Proxy the heck out of anything that can be even remotely proxied. There are so many talented artists, innovative entrepreneurs, dedicated game designers in the market these days that GW is old news to me. They're the "have beens" of the wargaming world. Sure some of their figures are great, if I can get a GW original army all the better - but if I can't Eureka, Pendraken, Kallistra, Copplestone Castings and others will proxy just fine for my fantasy needs. Don't even get me started on the amazing 10mm ranges available for historicals!

Dark Realm, GZG, Exodus Wars, Brigade Models, GHQ/H&R with a little imagination, green stuff and superglue can all be made into very appropriate Specialist Games units. And as GW has turned its back on us, the SG community anyway, even killing off my beloved 1/72 WAB  :-[ I feel absolutely zero allegiance to them.
They may have designed the world over the decades, but the games I feel are mine. I grew up with them. The fluff as they continually re-write it interests me little.

Gaming is still to me a chance to meet like-minded people, sink some bevvies, compliment one another on painting and modelling, discuss tactics, win the odd game, research new historical periods - painting is my version of meditation, gaming my testosterone output.

Any tournaments, never mind pickup games, which I have partaken in over the years including the European GT not one person has ever raised an eyebrow at proxied units - pretty much everyone is of the same mindset at least in my current Victorian gaming cadre/community.

Pardon the long post and may all your dice roll high (or low, if making Ld rolls)!
 ;)

GW is so supid.  If they would have just announced a last chance opportunity to get your orders in with the full understanding that it would be filled, they would have made so much money.  Instead, all the money is now going to ebay and people sitting on a pile of stuff that new gamers, caught unawares by GW's ignorance, now pay 'uge of amounts of cash for.  Totally understandable if all you need is that few odd units to complete your army, x 20 if you tried to collect every army for alot of games systems.
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: stevothedivo on August 14, 2014, 07:31:46 PM
True that but when I was collecting my armies Specialist Games were fully supported by GW. There were articles, a dedicated magazine, tutorials, events being run at the stores...
That perhaps is the main point of difference. Were I to begin playing today I'd be welcomed and relieved by someone with, as you mention, several original armies telling me I don't need GW originals and proxies are perfectly acceptable. I built my collections of both Epic and Warmaster over several years, losing interest awhile, then going out on purchase binges, then losing interest again, then getting full on back into it..like I imagine most of us do.
What I really meant - which may not have come across as intended as evidenced by your response if I've interpreted correctly - is it's the rules, camraderie and fun/fluff of the systems and universes GW built that keep me coming back to Specialist Games. I love the univeses and world, the fluff, and the Specialist rulesets.
Once GW dumped them, though, all bets are off in my book - I no longer owe GW's shareholders jack.
A Kallistra army makes a perfectly acceptable Brettonian force; Eureka's line of miniatures offer wonderful Dark Dwarves and Beastmen army proxies. Demons are available from more manufacturers than I can name, as are renaissance (Empire) and generic Elves and Dwarf forces (just look at Pendraken's lines - stunning and cheap)
Were GW supporting SG it'd be a different ball game, but since they're not - why pay a premium for something the very manufacturer of the game has dumped. It's the community that keeps these games alive, certainly not the corporate bigwigs in their crystal palaces.
At my local GW store you can't even mention Specialist Games, yet on a Sunday arvo the manager shuts up shop and busts out Blood Bowl, Necromunda, Warmaster, Epic...not all managers/GW staff abide "the rules" - many became involved for the same reasons we all play these games, they just have to toe a line because they have rent and children and it's their job to push product. Once the doors shut though, they're gamers just like you and I and that's cool to me.

I wonder how many of these people just have no clue as to how the game works?

There's heaps of lots advertised as 'massive armies' when really they're only a few blisters worth, and others with 5 strips of X and 8 strips of Y- none of which are actually enough to make a single full unit without fillers.

It seems to be quite common that people don't know what they're selling. Saw a Warhammer Fantasy Orc army earlier today advertised as Warhammer 40,000 (40k) Ork Army. I suppose they could count as Ferals, but I doubt the seller was going for that. I guess we aren't all gamers on this planet. :p

Yeah... Before the prices went mad I managed to get a Void Spinner, Scorpion and Storm Serpent but no Cobras or Revenants. So I keep occasionally looking at these things, longingly, but then I think... That money could go to boost projects like Warmonger or other fan made stuff for Warmaster.

So I shrug, close the window and go back to glueing stuff. =-p

Were they a Storm of Chaos special?

I'm wondering if it might be worth it in a "just have one for the collection" kind of way.  £50 is what the SoC character blister goes for, and was less than other SoC units were going for last year (Hammerers etc.).

I don't remember them being Storm of Chaos related, though they may have been. I think they were just one of the many alternative units sculpted and 'just because'.
If you're a collector of the alternative units and consider that reasonable then sure, go for it. I saw both Storm of Chaos Chaos Sorcerors on eBay recently if you're after them, as well (though they may have been missing their base detail pieces).

He sells the Bretonnian Squires- a unit I want- for 45 pounds  :o
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Stormwind on November 12, 2014, 12:06:33 AM
Ha ha, no, not reasonable.  I, too, had my eyes on some sorcerors.

But I am in the UK, so I don't really see the listings around the world.  Import charges make it even more expensive to get things from the US or Oz, usually.

Those knights where common Knights of the Realm.

The rare knight unit is the Errant Knights. And there are the "Grail Knights" unit existing too. The "Questing knights" just do not exists.

So those where the classical knights unit... I checked the pictures.

Those are some odd prices though. 20 pounds for the Giant and Black Orcs? I can see the interest in Orc Warriors, as core units are... well, core, though 20-30 pounds is a bit much. And it's then odd that the goblins only went for 10 pounds each- and that included the rarer bow-armed models.
The difference of 10 pounds for trolls in blister vs trolls nicely painted is a bit much.
I'm also surprised to see the Goblin Fanatic Cannons at 34 pounds- I think that's a rise for them.

Wow. On the positive side they are in good condition. Maybe you can contact the seller with a more reasonable offer and he may reconsider once it's been around for a while? He still probably wants an above average offer, or may set your asking price as the lowest bid in an auction.

Free advertising! Sweet haha.

On a serious note I actually got lucky and managed to pick up a second Emporer dragon/maiden! Which is why this one is now up for sale (I paid a pretty penny for it).

I'll be posting a bunch of my extra stuff up on ebay over the next few days. I've accumulated 5000+ pts in Chaos/high elves/dwarfs so most of it will be that stuff. But I will have some rarer stuff mixed in mainly my extra daemons and brets.

Feel free to shoot me a PM and make an offer, I'm in no rush to sell this stuff, but may consider lowing prices (or adding make an offer) if they don't sell over the next little bit.

I don't blame ToM for trying to get the most money for his stuff- who wouldn't? It's pretty much the entire reason for eBay.

There was a heap of stuff I was wanting from this seller, but all of the prices went mad- this was probably just the worst case.

Yeah. Prices have already long ago left the sphere of common sense. It is a seller's market not a buyer's market.

People have the right to sell at ANY price they want to.

Not pointing fingers here but the only thing I have a problem with is "if" someone uses tons of gaming forums to feign interest in Warmaster and buy from the communities and then forward those minis straight on to Ebay for huge prices to make a pretty penny.
I can't stop that practice but it certainly is something I am not fond off.

What's the going rate for the Dragon/Maiden. I've got 2 sets now, one of which I picked up on this site for basically $300 when shipping/customs etc were factored in. I don't want to lose to much cash on it.

The listing said: "It is a large amount of models, easily enough for a complete army, but I have forgotten how exactly they form into units!

12 spearmen could mean 12 strips = 2 units.

Guesswork: Most Warmaster-players/collectors/painters out there are probably around 30 and upwards with disposable income to spend? That would certainly drive the prices up a bit.

I am 32 minus the disposable so it's almost impossible to get my hands on the rare OnG stuff (savage/forrest) that I want :/

It's not GW, it's a Kallistra Orc Ballista. You can get 3 new ones for £6. The seller has other Kallistra stuff on at equally "optimistic" prices you'd have to be soft in the head to pay.

I contacted the seller a few weeks ago and told him both the source of these figures and that they are overpriced. He hasn't altered the prices though. Meh.

While I agree that some of the BFG prices are silly try not to get discouraged. There are some good deals on eBay, I picked up a complete necron fleet 1x tomb, 3 scythes, 2x light cruisers and then 15x assorted escorts for $100aud.

So there are good and honest people selling, not just the scalpers. I would say chaos come up quite often so keep and eye out. Also have a look at the BFG Facebook page, always people selling on there for good prices as they know they are selling to others that enjoy the game. In the past 3x weeks I have seen every fleet advertised for below eBay prices.

Warmaster "Commons":

here in the U.S. we just had thanksgiving last week and it seemed like no one was bidding at all while some auctions ended with just my 1 bid.  purchased 6 blisters for not even thirty bucks shipped and there was a whole mess of storm of chaos characters also for sale.  picked up archaon the everchosen and teclis for not even another 30 shipped.

the only thing that was contested was an alternate chaos spawn, the one that looks like a disgusting alien bug with the 2 sharp arms, just over 25 shipped.

All of us americans are still in a turkey coma and plenty of things are still going for just 1 bid of .99 cents  ;)

Ahh, you had to say something! :P  I was hoping for some High Elf Chariots and Silver Helms, but they got away from me.  Now I'll just have to happy with some High Elf archers.  Which for 10 dollars I suppose isn't too bad. :D

Doesn't always work like that.

Classic cars are more expensive now than when they were first available. The reason is they are no longer manufactured, and the people that have them are unwilling to part with them. So you get a lot of potential buyers wanting to purchse the same thing, hence the price goes up.

same thing with this situation.  Oddly enough, there are more buyers than figures to buy.  Oddly being that they were at one time mass produced and I still cant find someone to play a game with besides my brother  :P

The dwarf king on a throne and the anvil of doom models went for a ridiculous 61 dollars each, plus shipping.  So I guess most everything is normal still.  ha

I don't know what just happened.  Maybe ebay broke or something.  But I was just able to get a blister of silverhelms, 2 unit of high elf spearmen, 1 unit of high elf archers, 1 bolt throwers, one unit of reavers and 1 unit of chariots for under 40 dollars with shipping.

That was crazy.  Is there something I don't know?  Like Games workshop has already shown super cool new warmaster sculpts so that these are worthless?

There were some other things that went for ludicriously cheap, but I was too weighed down with goodies to justify spending anymore.

Sealed stuff has always exploded prices. I have seen a warmaster Emperor Dragon go for 300 euros because it was still in shrinkwrap few years ago.

Other than that, i have seen skaven are back around 50$ for clan rats...

Post by: marell le fou on February 09, 2016, 02:00:01 AM
Yeah, prices are from a general sight globaly lowing but at a very slow speed and with some exceptions.

And it remains very different from one week to another.

Vampire counts went for nothing few days ago, but they can go back to 50$ per blister at any time. That is my opinion of those last sells.

Dark elves and lizardmen are more or less back to 20$ approx. Sometime less. Skaven are those very last days back at high price.

Frankly, this seller is right to propose it at a high price. It has not poped on ebay for years, and this one is NIB.

I'm unsure someone will buy it but at a sightly lesser price it would go. Probably a best offer will be accepted at nearly the initial price.

I fully understand that. Halas, collectors value the most NIB stuff. This sell is clearly adressed to collectors.

The most i see prices evolves, the most i think we should recast in resina our pieces. Collectors can fight to buy original metal figs. players just want to play with them, even if they are not original ones.

But well. GW do sell collectable figs and always did. It's clearly an assumed market.

Just spent 25$ (with shipping) on a unit of Phoenix guard without bases.  That's the most I've spent on a blister. How reasonable/unreasonable was that price?  I don't have any rare units and I needed more high elf spearman anyways... At least that's how I justify it myself.

Very reasonable.  Going price for them even before The Great Dying of 2013 was £30/£40.

They're a more common rare unit.

Yep, it's a good price if you think it's genuine stuff. But sol without bases, i guess it's only recasts. Check carefully the casting quality when you receive them.

I don't get what the rare part of that is. There's another auction with a much cheaper Anvil, and I don't remember the Throne being uncommon. It's odd that only 3 main bidders pushed the price so high.

Yes, throne and anvil are very tought after, even if prices have gone down those last weeks. But it remains a rare blister. Nobody had bought it when still available cause useless in rules if i remember well.

Hey, look at the last pic of the dwarven joblot: i see some dwarven unreleased pieces (organ gun, furniture strip and crew). The funny thing is that they weren't even listed in the auction details. I think that this joblot turned out as a real bargain :-)

I assumed the 'furniture strip' was cannon accessories? It's been a long time since I've looked at Dwarf blisters.
I wouldn't have recognised that as an Organ Gun if you hadn't have mentioned it- I'm still not quite sure- but that would certainly help explain the price! I'd have probably joined that bidding war.

Epic prices have never growed like other OOP range did.

I think there are sellers who would love to make it more interesting for them. They probably set prices high, hoping that the rest of the sellers will do the same, and to begin a big move of prices up, forcing people to buy them at the price they want.

It could work if a sufficient number of sellers do that.

Some ranges, like Epic Tau, have already jumped few years ago.

Post by: marell le fou on January 19, 2017, 09:12:27 PM
Totaly agreed. Anyway, some sellers keep trying to up prices... And probably some people wanting original GW stuff are ready to pay higher prices for a Leman Russ than the price of a Vanguard Centurion Tank.
Title: Re: SG stuff already going for silly prices on eBay?
Post by: Geep on January 21, 2017, 06:03:42 PM
I think the sellers don't understand what makes a valuable epic lot. A single 15 pound tank is insane, because you usually want ~10. No one is going to drop 150 pounds on a single, common Epic formation. The situation isn't helped for the sellers by the way Epic has changed over time- for example, I've seen people try and sell a Manticore blister for an absurd amount- but that's 2 models. You need at least 3- so the blister has very little value, except to a rare few people.
Warmaster prices can rise higher more easily since a blister pack is a full, useful unit.

Brilliantly, his user name is "money for old rope" which, for our non English speakers, as a saying referring to tricking someone into buying something useless.

While I appreciate the value of that expansion, given that I own a copy myself, it cannot possibly be worth anywhere near that much.  A rare German edition it may be, but asking such an extortionate price cannot be justified in my opinion.

I really want to get a full set of UK edition Heroquest add ons at some point, for myself.  The base game, Kellar's Keep and the Witch Lord add on are not too scarce but the Ogre Horde and Morcar add ons are incredibly rare to find in complete condition, even without boxes.

I wonder why that is - were they very late in the release cycle? Was the RRP on release too high?

They were the last two releases (apart from the Adventure Design Kit), so that may have something to do with it.  I'm also not sure how many of them were actually made.  I'm just relieved that I have them, so that I don't have to shop around for them now.

The Ogre Horde and Wizards of Morcar were both released in the UK.
