they are worth what you're willing to pay for them. As far as selling them, No more than about half the (original) retail price or half the median collector pricwe. Y"eah I know, I know "its the ultra rarae Wauughgh Dakk Dakka 40 Special K Collector Uber Chamion. However if its beat to crap, has no weapons and somebody attempted to do a bad greenstruff conversion then I am not paying top dollar, or even perhaps a median dollar for it.

How much should a seller expect to get for a bag of battered old figures with missing weapons and heads?

I have been told, at a collectors fair, that the lead figure I was looking at was worth £5.00 GBP because it was rare. It was a Ral Partha wolf – the base was broken off, and the figure was not lovely shiny lead color, more a dark grey shading to black – not good since this was bare metal!

So, what should a seller expect for a bag of miscellaneous battered and broken figures?
