Yes, but we have to hurry to pain tall that we bought. At 60 it will be too late, with shaking hands. Better to paint now and play between 60 and 80. After that... I don't know. Maybe we will be able to sat and give orders to figs-pushers friends :-)

Can somebody explain why there are auctions on eBay about non-OOP non-painted stuff that go for prices higher than their RRP?

Without wishing to be cruel, some people are simply gullible and believe it when people advertise gaming stuff as "rare" or "oop" when it's not!  The old roman saying of buyer beware applies! It's doubly true on the internet.

One day, if and when GW ever drops the Warmaster range, watch those prices go REALLY mental!

I sometimes toy with the idea of reporting to ebay every sellers that sells stuff pretended OOP, but i never had the courage to do that (yet).

I've done it a few times.  The listings get pulled.  It seems like no big deal to report them.

A fool and his money are soon parted ;)
Some people nowadays, use eBay as their reference site for prices for all sorts of items.
Some sellers now use that to fleece fools out of their cash :(
