Hello, I'm trying to get my head around what price i should ask for when selling my figures.

I have been told i am somewhere between Wargame quality and collectors quality as i have been painting for 40 years and do paint to order for people but don't want to make a job of it.
I am simply out of shelf space and need to thin out my collection.

What do you think is a reasonable price to ask,$120 – $140 USD per unit, fully based (12 cavalry/24 infantry)?? This includes postage

I think that is a good price, and I can see myself purchasing some units (if the period is right).

My collection consists of the following:
Agincourt,Crusaders, Saracens, Arthurians, Successor, Gauls, Samurai and Ashigaru
If your interested I have posted photos on my Flickr page under Aaron Jordan.

I haven't got the pictures for the WW2 as of yet.

Something that affects the price beyond painting quality maker / figure line and size. I assume by the pricing that they are 25 28 mm or larger?

General Disorder Supporting Member of TMP22 Jan 2019 1:48 a.m. PST

Sorry yes they are all 28mm from Artizan, Crusader, Foundry, Gripping Beast, Perry, Steel Fist, Footsore Eureka….

All the usual brands.

Could you provide a link to your Flickr account as searching for you by name just brings up millions of personal pics for everyone who has the same name as you.

I would be interested in your Gauls. Do you do package deals?

Thanks in advance.

P/M sent as well.

I would be interested in seeing photos of the Crusaders and Saracens. I too searched Flickr but there are literally hundreds of Aaron Jordans

It always depends on the painting quality. And of course what casting you purchased originally. An expertly painted Mini-Fig might draw less attention than a so-so Perry.

If you are selling…. figures always have value. If "they" are buying you can almost double that value.

But, I think you already know all of this………………

If you go onto the Ancients market place, you will find a comment/offer "Byzantines for sale". Go to it and click on any of the links, and it will take you to his Flckr page. You can then use the arrows to go to any of those images, or to his folders for various other armies for sale.

He's a very good painter, judging from his photos.

I could be interested in a number of your Successors.
