Unboxing Random Supplies from Ebay
So, what is any one with an addiction to the little plastic models going to do? Ignore it? Let it pass by and go to some other unwitting fool? Or do you bid away merrily until you win your prize? You all know the answer already. The attraction to the unknown was too great. I dived in and damned the consequences to the back of my mind.
So, with the aim of justifying this splurge, this post will aim to do just that (I hope) and hopefully, if my wife asks, I can just point her to this post and show her how in spending money I have saved me some money.
The Assault Marine has made me consider adding some Sky Claws to my Wolves, but that will have to wait a while.
So that got me thinking what could I make? I could buy the Soul Grinder bits and make that, but I'm not convinced about that. So I took a look through my own Chaos bits bag and struck on an idea - a Maulerfiend! Have you ever seen a 'fiend made from a Defiler base? Me neither, so that means it must be attempted. It will either be great or fail miserably. In my mind it is definitely the former.
I will also be putting together some Slaanesh bikers (T5, I5 high speed freaks) with a couple of boxes of the new Chaos bike squads that GW brought a couple of weekends ago.
So, all in all, not a bad haul. As a quick calculation. based on what GW would sell this as for new we get -
Maulerfiend - £40
5 Possessed Marines - £20.50
20 Chaos Space Marines - £46.00
4 Chaos Vehicle Accessories Sprues - £36.00
Total - £142.50
And hopefully I should get something back if I manage to sell off the accessories sprue. In conclusion, Ebay can be incredible for bargains sometimes. It will also keep me busy fixing up my Emperor's Children/Thousand Sons for the next few weeks. Thanks for reading!
