Out of Production Models

Post by Gloryofdawn » Sat Mar 01, 2014 10:22 pm

I'm looking to sell a few of my old Eldar models on here, and I've run across some that are most definitely out of production. I'm not sure how to price them. Does being out of production make them worth more? Less?

Please respond ASAP, I'd really like to get this post up.

Frankly, it depends on the the model.

Harlequins traded at high values for a long time, because there were no equivalent models in current production. That has changed. And may, of course, change again.

There are a handful of genuinely rare models, but, for most, you need to remember that many moulds were in service from 2nd edition almost through 5th.

Your best bet is to look at eBay "sold auctions" and "completed auctions."
"Sold" will tell you what people are paying for them, while "completed" will tell you what people have been passig up.
It'll also give you an idea just hos common your models are.

Lower rating? You ship first.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

They're worth what someone is willing to spend for them. Really depends on what you have.
I buy and trade minis, that's what I do.
