Hi there this my first real post on here but having seen this done over at TWF i am going to give it a bash. I decided that the only way i can justify buying a good airbrush and compressor is through something like this and i have shamelessly copied and pasted Darklords criteria for what i'm going to do but here goes.

Here are the rules I am setting myself:


Start with 10
I may spend the money on any combination of miniatures, accesories etc I wish but cannot exceed what I have in the kitty.
Ebay and Paypal fees as well as postage and packing are all deductible.
I am free to use any accessories or supplies I already own or are donated free of charge.
I may use a mini i already own but must 'buy it' at RRP from the funds
I wont be counting comission work
My final target is 500

I already had some battle for skull pass night goblins from Flebay kicking around so i'm going to give them a bash. I got them for 6.70.

Current fund 3.30. :rockon:

You might want to wait until Saturday before putting them on EBay, I got an e-mail from them yesterday saying that Sat & Sun was a free listing weekend again!

You could always do a search of warhammer goblins that have sold in the past and then start your price appropriately.

Alternatively break down the prices for the units from the full cost of the box set and then add some for you time painting etc.

Got the goblins sold off for 12.81 after all fees were deducted. So ive got a total of 16.11 in my pot for stage two. I already have some new Dark Eldar Scourges which i picked up for 15 so my pot Is down to 1.11.
