Dark Angels For Sale

Here are the details of my Dark Angels army that I am selling at Imperial Outpost Games gamer's garage sale on 8/9.  This collection includes 73 miniatures and goes back to the late 90's when I first got into 40K. 

Here is what is included:

HQ -
Tech Marine
2 robed marines

Troops -

Three 10 man squads with Plasma Cannon and Plasma gun
5 man Scout squad with CCW
5 man Scout squad with 2 shotguns, 2 snipers and a heavy bolter

Fast Attack -

6 man Assault squad with jump packs
6 man Assault squad with CCW

Heavy Support -

5 man Devastator squad with Lascannons
5 man Devastator squad with Missile Launchers

Extras -

2 Sargents with Power Fists
2 Meltaguns

I am looking for $350 for this collection.  I am pretty sure you could not buy this new for that price.  And you certainly can't get a few of these models any more.  There are only a few figures that need some details finished.  I had started to rebase several years ago so the basing is not consistent.  For the most part if the edges were all black they would look fine.

I have no idea how this points out with the new codex but I am sure it is very useable with only minor adjustments.

Deathwing Army For Sale

I have come to the realization that I do not need to keep 5 armies for a game I am not playing and have not played in a couple of years (and have no immediate plans to play again).  With that in mind I have decided to sell my Dark Angels army starting with the Deathwing.  Next week I will be sell a bunch of stuff at a local gamer's garage sale so I wanted to put some pictures up for people who might be interested.

The army consist of the following:

Land Raider Crusader with Forgeworld doors
Three Dreadnoughts (2 metal and one plastic)
Terminator Captain
Terminator Chaplain
Terminator Librarian
3 Terminator squads of 5

This army was built and painted many years ago (4th edition I think) and may no longer be 'legal' under the current edition.  I have no idea but I am sure that someone can make it work with minimal changes.

The asking price for the collection is $450, which is a good deal for an army full of killer vintage models and well painted.

I am trying to get the rest of the Dark Angels Space Marines sorted out and documented.  That will be sold at the same even as a separate lot.  Stay tuned for more pictures.

28mm French Napoleonic Figure Comparison

I have been assembling my new Napoleonic additions and though there might be some interest in a figure comparison.

Figures with paint are Victrix.  Unpaited figures are, from left to right, Old Glory, Warlord Games and Perry Miniatures.

Vacation Shopping

Another year and another July 4th trip to Southern California.  As part of this annual vacation ritual I visit a couple of great games stores and spend too much money.  The first stop is always The War House in Long Beach.  This a cool little hole in the wall place that is a neat mix of old stuff and the latest releases.  I found the new Battlefront Bastogne Church.  I have been waiting a long time for one of these and was very happy to finally add it to the collection.  I will do a separate review of this.  I also found a few items for my US armies - some jeeps, TD security section for late war and an armored rifle company HQ section.  I probably could of spent lots more there but I needed to pace myself.

After an inexcusably crappy lunch, Tim and I headed over to Brookhurst Hobbies in Garden Grove.  I have been shopping at Brookhurst for years and it is one of my favorite shops.  I always find lots of good stuff and this year was no exception.  I got a few packs of Peter Pig figures for various German projects for Flames of War.  I found a cool FJ Light Artillery battery for my never ending Fallschirmjager army.  I picked up a Barkmann set for my Normandy Panther Company project.  This is the new one with the plastic parts.  Now I will need to order the plastic parts for the rest of the army - doh!  I added some 4Ground 15mm walls to my European terrain collection.  These look really cool and more than 3 feet of walls for $13 is pretty good.  Finally, I added some Perry and Warlord French to the pile for my Napoleonic project.

All in all vacation was sand, sun, good food and great hobby shopping!
