Leaving Macragge

As I briefly mentioned yesterday I have made the decision to divest myself completely of my Ultramarine force for 40K. It's tough decision but the reality is there aren't enough hours in the day to play every game and I am fooling myself in to thinking I'll make the time as it just isnt a priority given all the other stuff I am more interested in. I put alot of work into these guys ( lots of painstakingly done freehand icons, with still more to do.) What I want to do is finish the up the army and sell it to someone who can appreciate it. I still need to finish painting the Assault squad and build the Devastator Squad, and touch up a few guys.

The final army for sale will be:
1 Commander - Iron Halo, Power Weapon, Plasma Pistol
28 Marines (3 Sgts, 2 Missile Launchers, 2 Plasma Guns, 2 Flamers)
-10 of these guys are Macragge (the rest tact squad box)
6 Assault Marines- (Sgt with Bolt Pistol, Shield and Power Fist, , 1 with Plasma Pistol and Chainsword, 3 with BP and CS, and one with a Flamer)
5 Devastator Marines (1 Sgt, 4 guys with??? these are unbuilt, what do you guys with the new Codex think?, I was thinking 2 Plasma Cannon. 2 Heavy Bolters?
1 Rhino is included with these guys

Anyway 40 Marines total, everyone is painted as 3rd Company (red trim), as you can see from the photos there are lots of custom details. I am not going to model my extra vehicles as they are too time consuming, so I will be selling 2 rhinos, each with a set of Forge World extra armor..and a Razorback separately. Scott from Citizen Nick Hobby Center called dibs on the 2 Rhinos...so unless he passes its really just the Razorback. my other question is whats a fair price? the infantry models themselves cost well over $100.00, as far as painting goes I am thinking $5 a piece. I am thinking $300.00 sounds like a fair price in order to move it quick. I'll even throw in some of extras like a bag of bits. What do you guys think?

As far the rest of 4oK stuff goes I am keeping my terrain, new rule book and templates...in case I do eventually end up playing. If I do I wouldn't play marines so I would be starting a new force from scratch and that would probably be Tau or Imperial Guard. Time will tell. Anyway I am looking forward to finishing these guys up right and finding them a good home!!!

Obviously this is not everything, there are a few unpainted guys and the Dev squad is still sprued. the missing assault guy is still in pieces awaiting paint, this is just where I am currently at.

Ah, 'tis a sad day. Sad day indeed.

but as you said, Dibs! I may take that razorback too. We should discuss prices.

I'm not sure what the fate of our final re-match is. I have a lot going on right now (more about that in a private e-mail).

This is a sad day indeed.

I completely understand and respect John's decision, though I do hope he gets into 40k again at some point.

For anyone intrested in giving these marines a good home I can personally attest to the level of detail and paint work on these figures (heck everything John does). You won't be sorry.
