Avenging Knights - a sweet haul

Picked up a job lot of models off Ebay for a really good price and the best of the bunch was this little lot.

Suffice to say, I'm very chuffed considering I could only see 8 knights among all the bits in the rather small Ebay photo.

Yes, I am gloating. :D

What a haul... Certainly one of the best I have ever seen. Well done sir! Of course, next you have to paint them all!

They were in a junk lot and I could make out about 8 knights amongst all the rammage in the listing pic. Some other nice bits and bobs in there too but these guys were just the nuts. :)

What are you searching to find lots like that? The only ones I ever see a piles of half assembled plastics from starter sets.

I was looking for bloodletters and found the junk lot being sold by the same guy. Not sure I'd have stumbled across it otherwise. I was really surprised that I won the auction for such a low price (£19) but then again perhaps the listing and photo didn't do the lot justice. Once everything is cleaned up I'll sell off the spare command models, the damaged pieces and perhaps a couple of the other knights (I think I could live with a unit of 30 models). ;)

In fact my bag of duplicates and spares has grown a little recently so I'll be posting some odds and ends up for sale sometime.

I know a particular oldhammerer who's using these knights as Dark Elf spearmen who's going to be a little green with envy!

Good haul - those junk lots you happen upon are the most satisfying :mrgreen:

It's been at least 10 years since the last bargain haul of goodies I picked up! I mentioned it on my blog and I reckon I was well over due a good find after many years of paying the going rate for most things.

I just have to try and avoid painting any right now as I really want to keep adding to my Bretonnians and not get side tracked.
