    the other issue is that for such a big lot of minis, there will always be stuff in there people don't want.

    I only buy unpainted second hand stuff personally.

    I only buy unbuilt second hand stuff. xD

    I consider undercoated for the right model, but generally unpainted for metal, unbuilt for plastic.

    However the process of robo-insemination is far too complex for the human mind!

    The second-hand market's much more like a bazaar than a market. You've gotta hope the right person comes along and make it as enticing as possible. Strip the paint from your minis and they'll be more valuable. I haven't looked at your army, but even Golden Daemon standard models wouldn't sell that well, because they wouldn't fit into an existing force and are at a standard the painted can't hope to match for future models. If it's badly painted, there's more work for the end user to do in order to make it usable, so the value's less. Even a competent paintjob will probably not be in the desired colour scheme, or maybe they're not assembled too well, or with bad options.

    Speaking as someone who spends a lot of time trawling Wargaming Trading on Facebook, and EBay. We had a local guy try to earn money by buying old models, painting them, then selling them. Didn't make anything more than a loss, despite our warnings.

    Tyranids are also very lackluster, and if it's not a force set up to be a decent army, it's even less valuable. Selling second-hand models is a crapshoot. You're best off sitting on them and waiting for the right buyer to make an offer.

    Splitting into chunks might help too. I'd never spend hundreds of dollars on a large army, no matter how good the deal was, because I never have hundreds of dollars of spare money I could use. But I may consider something useful for my army at a lower price.
