Garage Sale – Iron Hands, Titan Maniple & Imperial Guard (Astra Militarum)

Posted: October 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hey Everyone,

Bet you weren’t expecting that!  Well, I’m moving house soon and re-assessing what I need and don’t need.  Although collecting these armies has been a real joy, its time to give them their marching orders and assign the to a new posting.  My plan is to put them on eBay, however a friend of mine suggest (very thoughtfully) to put them on my page first incase someone wants to buy either all of the Iron Hands, Titans or Guard.  You see, if I put them on eBay, I’ll be breaking them up.  The post code that they’ll be sent from is 4067, Australia.

So, whats on offer I hear you ask.  I’ll start with the easy one.  The Titans.

You get the Reaver and two Warhounds pictured.  If you want to see them being assembled and painted, click here and here. These Titans have been featured on Forge Worlds Facebook page (when it existed), in two magazines (national and international) that I know of and the Reaver and the Warhounds have also won awards in few painting competitions (local and state).  The internals of the Reaver and one of the Warhounds is painted too.

They’re pretty heavy and big, so if you live overseas, be prepared for a pretty hefty postage cost.  However if you’re game, so am I.

Please note that only offers over $2,000+P&H will be considered.  Expressions of interested can be made by messaging me though my Facebook page – click here

I accept that the market for these armies is pretty small at these price points, however it would be nice to sell them whole, rather than breaking them up on eBay.  Hence this is my first port of call.  They all represent excellent value for money, as I’m only looking to recover the cost of the models, no time allowed for painting.  Also, please share this post on whatever other pages you visit.  Like I said, it’d really like these armies to go whole.

On a different topic, I have been painting.  Lots and lots of World Eaters as a matter of fact.  So hopefully you’ll see some posts on them soon.  However with Uni, moving house and end of semester exams (plus a trip to New York for a month at the end of the year coming up) I’m pretty flat strap.

Thanks for dropping in,

John Sutton.

  1. Such a shame you have to part with them mate, I remember when I first got onto your work most of these were WIP.

    Is there any chance that before you sell these there could be a huge battle report? I love how you painted these and I would be over joyed if this happened! Also I am in love with your landraider, I’m painting a black one myself and I was curious if you had any tips for painting black armor without an airbrush and the weathering you did? I watched the videos you made but it seems that the landraider has significantly more weathering than the landspeeder. Thank you!

    • John Sutton says:

      hey mate, painting black is tricky, and a lot of what I do is just from experience. Suffice to say, that when you paint black, it isn’t really black. It’s lots shades of back etc. As for a battle report, i did do one with my iron hands v world eaters. did you see that?
