Tallarn Army Price Reduction

by SandWyrm

27 Watchers but no bidders eh? Well... Let's see what happens at this new price.


  1. break a leg on that one sandy. :) still trying to sell mine. down to 1k for my entire army now. lol

  2. Wow. I thought that the initial price was pretty fair considering the work that went into it, at the lower price it's a steal.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it though, most of the action tends to come in the last few minutes.

  3. The Price does not do the army justice.

    However I am interested in it. I have loved the paint scheme and the converted chimera's since I started to follow this blog.

  4. @sonoftaurus Unfortunately the amount of work put into an army doesn't scale with what you can resell it for

    When I saw your first price, although it is a gorgeous army, I couldn't see it ever getting a bid. This price stands a chance though of getting someone interested. Remember, just to think about more accurate statistics: a lot of your auction watchers are likely people in the community/the ones that read your blog, that are purely interested in cheering you on and seeing how it does, not in buying it.

    GL on the sale, it's a wonderful army and I hope it finds a nice home!

  5. While I admire your army, the price is pretty high (just IMHO), when you can find armies that are just as viable that run far less, for example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Warhammer-40K-Space-Marines-Spear-Sicarius-/160697465429?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item256a50ba55 This is a well-painted good sized force at half of what you're asking (Sure its SM, but it's army quality/size point). Note they don't have any bids, either.

  6. Uhhh....

    That's the Spear of Sicarius. It's GW's holiday set from a few years back.

    Those are the GW-stock pictures of the 'Eavy Metal official display minis. The ones whose pictures are in the Codex.

    They're not the actual models for sale.

  7. Well, I have always loved this army and when I saw you at Adpeticon I hope I didn't drool too much. I just put in a bid. I would love to have this army. The only reason i didn't paint my IG the same exact colors was because the paint isn't made any more! But this is close enough!

    Yeah, if you read the description, he's only selling unassembled sprues from an OOP box set. Not painted models.

  9. @Alec

    Thank you very much!!!

    I was starting to fear I'd have to sell the army off in pieces. :(

  10. I'll tell you from experience that selling a high ticket item is a tough thing, no matter what channels you use. I personally think Ebay is seriously limited in the ability to get it sold at the price you want. As a rule, Ebay is good for mid-level items or things that are tougher to come by (but not custom items). A lot of people use it because it's easier than most other options.

    Maybe CMON, coolstuff, and a few well placed emails might help get the word out...

  12. Oh I really love this army. I even got Tom McBride (Blood and Skulls Industries) to cast a set-back Chimera that he scratchbuilt for me so I could have 12. And then I painted my army in similar colors. So this is like my inspiration!
