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.

Space Wolf Army for sale

You've seen it featured on this blog for years.

I'm letting my favorite army go.  I enjoyed making and playing this army more than any other.  All of the skills I learned in painting, customizing, were developed with this army.

It was built on the old 3rd Edition Codex, played in 4th and 5th and 6th edition.

  It is table ready now! 
And comes with enough options to make any aspiring Wolf Lord happy.

My path has taken me away from the game I enjoyed, and it is time to let someone else enjoy this army.

Here's my Converted Ragnar, included.
