    Default Is the GW Resale\Trade Market dead?

    So after lurking for the last few months I figured I would speak up again! I am dropping Games Workshop games in favor of Malafaux,Bolt action and Weiss Schwartz (Anime card game) However before I can really start up any of those games I need to sell my Tyranids and Fantasy chaos........ Which seems to be Impossible regardless of how good the price is. So over all has anyone else noticed a completely dead market or are Nids just not in Demand at all? (I know Fantasy sales are dead due to age of fail)

    Off-topic, but Weiss is fun. I have two decks to get rid of.

    40k and Fantasy resale seems to be doing fine on Facebook.

    I've had good luck on Facebook. Most people are happy to use PayPal, and most pages keep tabs on who is trade reliable. All with none of the EBay charges.

    "Good prices" can vary dramatically. I can't tell you how many times I've seen someone trying to sell an army for much more than it was worth. And to be honest, unless you find the exact right guy to buy it, a lot of people simply won't be interested, or will only be interested in trading rather than buying. I know that I wouldn't want to buy, say, a full Necron army even for an absurdly good deal, even though I easily have the money, simply because I'm not really interested in playing Necrons.

    Painted models go for at the most half the retail price unless they're really, really well painted. You're most likely overestimating what they're worth.

    Age of Sigmar hasn't killed the resale market but it has flooded it, people who play it now don't need to have 120 Night Goblins per unit to make it viable so there is a lot of extra stuff out there in peoples armies. You can still sell your models but the price won't be as good.

    The two or three second hand dealers I frequent appear to have reasonable to high stock turnover.

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