  • Parvusmachina and the Quest for $1000

    New to WAMP and have been looking for reasons/motivation to pick up the brushes. Besides Entering WAMPed II, this looked interesting enough. Sooo....here we go!

    I am starting off with a Space Marine Tactical squad (I believe these were $25?). So I am starting with $25, and I hope to turn that into $1000....yes I have lofty goals, but I believe that you either go big or go home.

    Pics of some of the squad are in the WAMPed II gallery for sci-fi. I need to pm DL to find out if I need to wait till after the contest to put them up on eBay.

    Ok, the items are up on eBay. The tactical squad is $37.25 according to GW site so that is waht I am starting as my initial cost. Listing fees were $.20 (for listing internationally). No biggie.

    Check it out here!



    Thanks for lookin!

        They look good parvusmachina, although I agree with Gi6ers about the bigger pics. Good luck in reaching your target, do you have a time frame in mind?

            Thanks everyone.
            @Gi6ers: The link on CMON is here: http://coolminiornot.com/pics/pics16...071d6485e6.jpg
            @Ulfgrimer: No time frame. Just the monetary goal. Want to see how long it takes.

            Working on getting bigger pics up soon(ish)...

              Just a little update on the space marine auction. I have had over 600 views in about 2 days and only one person is watching it....sigh....ah well. I've already got some half finished Menoth jacks that I am going to get to after I finish my latest commission.

                  The trend lately is to bid on the last day parvusmachina, I know it's hard but try not to fret till then.

                    OK, the Space Marine Tactical squad sold for the minimum bid amount (which was retail for the box set). I am in the red by $2.02 due to ebay and paypal fees.....ah well. I have to finish a commission piece (which is also going to be a Wamped II entery) and then I am not sure what to complete. I have a half finished Greasus Goldtooth (the metal one) and a Menoth war band. I will post with updates when I decide what to do.

                      Not sure space marines are the route to profit, personally I think you can make cash from the latest GW characters to be released/dragons/film tie-in stuff.

                        Yeah, I think you are right. What about OOP miniatures? I have a TON of Rackham stuff (wolfen mainly).

                          Check what else is for sale, but unpainted & still blistered is your best bet for these. Unless you have particularly uncommon Wolfen, it might be worth hanging on to them for a bit (as there's still quite a lot of it around).

                          I think with most GW stuff, it either display or complete armies that sell well - a WM warband might do well
                          Oooh. That's a BINGO!

                            Ok, put up a Warmachine battlegroup for my next eBay auction.
                            I also have some unpainted but assembled stuff on eBay as well. There is just no way I am going to get an Ultramarine army painted. Too many other cool sculpts that I want to work on.

                              Nice, hope they do well - although, I can't help feeling your restricting your sales (esp. on the unpainted stuff) by have US only
                              Oooh. That's a BINGO!
