So, I haven't posted in a while so here is a New Years Update!

This year's resolution is to get as much of my armies painted as I can! To this end when I returned to my house on the 9th I will be making a full photographic catalog of my collection. After that I will be paint as much as I can. Since there will be pictures I'd love to get some input from you guys on what you'd like to see or suggestions. Sorry there won't be anything until then, but I should have some update very soon.

So I recently stopped by my local store here in beautiful Tyler, Texas. I really love the place (Called "Geek World") and they often have pretty decent deals on used minis. I didn't see anything at the consignment shelf I wanted, so I asked the owner if there were any other used minis. He said he had gotten a box just yesterday and I was welcome to look through it. $55 later this is what I ended up with. Its a pretty long post, but it has been a while so enjoy, you filthy animals!

I believe this guy is an old Tank Busta.
Image

This definately is.
Image

Tankbusta Nob, I believe. Either way he has a SWEET Commisar jacket on.
Image

BOMB SQUIG!
Image

Painboy with Grot Orderly
Image

More Tankbustas
Image

Of course the coolest Tankbusta (next to the one with the Commisar jacket) is missing his Missile Pick
Image

Best find of the whole lot, IMO, is this all metal Ghazghkull Thraka. He is only missing the two tusks that go next to his head, I believe.
Image

The following are some Stormboyz with some really neat conversions. I love what this guy did with the Grots.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Some Nifty Nobs!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And last but not least is this beast... This bad boy is certainly a fixer-upper. There are broken pieces, un-primed pieces, and its just a shambles. But I think I can save it!

Image

Image

Image

Image

As well I picked up 2 Nobs with Power Klaws, a Mekboy with Supa Shoota, 5 Boys with Big Shootas, 2 Rokkit Boyz, 3 Lootas, 15 Boyz with various Sluggas, Choppas, and Shootas. Its not as good as Arnathos' wife but I'll take it. The big question is this: Clean, strip, and fix everything before selling, or do all that then PAINT it before selling? Its been a while since I did Orks, but I think my old army was pretty nice. Should be able to see all the old stuff here: http://imgur.com/a/daUUN

Last thing for this MASSIVE post: I picked up these nifty bases while I was in Austin. I was thinking about painting them up in a dark jungle stone color, Aztec pyramid style, for my Lustrian Empire guys. I also plan to add some jungle foliage to them, depending on what I can find. Here ya go!

Nice find! All of those are current edition Tankbustaz in metal. Some neat Stormboy conversions, stock Nobz (though I love them myself).

Straight sale, I've found that even painting things up nicely the profit margin just isn't there.

I wouldn't be able to let them go ;) I keep saying I will sell some stuff...but....

Didn't someone start a mini specific sale site? I wonder if that is a better way to go?
