My Retribution Retinue Reinforcements.

I've been working on my force in preparation for a 50point tournament at the end of the month. Unpainted models are allowed, but with such a comparatively small force, I'm hoping to have it finished in time.

Here's a shot of the entire force, though reinforcements arrive next week.

I've magnetized my Phoenix, Manticore, Hydra. I'm also done with my first squad, 10 Dawnguard Invictors. Here are some shots of them.

Let me know what you think of these guys. I've used them in a single battle so far and they seem vulnerable to aoe attacks.

Retribution of Scyrah

So I was at my local game store and I enquired about how much it would cost just to get the latest rules to play my Raven Guard. ....

After I got up from the floor, I spied the Warmachine sets. I asked how much for a starter, and was invited to a game by a press-ganger.

I was hooked!

I even got started painted a few guys.  Let me know what you think...

eBay has ripped my heart out.

Anyone who has sold more than a couple things on eBay has experienced some regrets and disappointments, especially if the return (selling price - shipping costs, packaging costs, eBay fees, PayPal fees) is lower than the value you placed on the object up for auction.

Today I'm left with a heavy heart as I sit with one army remaining.  My space wolves sold for a very low price, which hurt, but what really hurts is who won the auction.

The winner has no particular love for the space wolves, doesn't care about the hundreds of dollars spent finding 13th company boxed sets, probably wont even notice the small conversions and magnetized storm bolter.  The winner is a high volume reseller of wargames stuff.  My scratch-built drop pod, who cares, maybe it'll be sold for $5.  Each of the units will be listed and resold in a way to maximize profits.  It's capitalism at its finest and it hurts.

I imagine it like a restored 1970 mustang being disassembled and sold for parts.

I feel sick. I can't bear to lose my Raven Guard this way, but I don't see the point of keeping them for a game I don't play or even have the rules for.

Perhaps I bring them down to the games store and see if they'll sell them on consignment.
