In order to raise cash for new projects & other things (..my fantastic Carbon Road Bike from Ribble Cycles...ooooo), I've started building & selling armies on EBAY. It's my 2nd time around on EBAY, I sold a few about 4 years ago & to be fair, didn't get the money I was looking for. I've now got a better idea on what I'm doing & have over the last few months sold about 20+ Armies. HOWEVER I can't believe the FEES that EBAY & PAYPAL now charge, shocking really. There doesn't appear to be any 'rival' sites on the net for selling Wargames stuff, if anyone has any ideas, please leave a comment.
My painting style has improved over the past 8 years (Yes it's been EIGHT years since we started gaming.... wow I feel old) & the newly painted armies are 'in the main' better than what we have. Hence the double size armies that are now built & painted. At the end of the day painting is a nice stress buster.
I bought some nice figures from Donnington http://www.donnington-mins.co.uk/, especially from their older range. Some little gems include camp fixtures, 'Crucified' & 'Impaled' victims, plus some nice extras for Artillery pieces. Though I have discovered the 'cannonballs' can be created from that metal chain made from circular balls, usually found on the chain in sinks. Guess what's happened to the kitchen/bathroom chains in the MrF household...... sad oh so sad.
I now add those snazzy Static grass tufts to the figure bases. These were purchased from the great Warpainter on Ebay. He also sells the 'FlockBox', it's a device that helps to make yours owns tufts (check out the web site for the science bit http://www.warpainter.net/Flockboxpages/Flockbox.html)
One now resides in the humble abode, anyway my first attempts were ok, improvements needed MrF...lol
