Buying Badly Painted Miniatures Off of eBay and Repainting Them
Have you ever heard of eBay rescues? That’s when people buy gaming miniatures on the cheap on eBay, usually because they are old, broken, and/or horribly painted. If you’re willing to take the time to strip paint and repair models, you can save a bundle. Often, the models are already fully assembled.
In this video, Casey of eBay Miniature Rescues buys an entire Warhammer 40,000 Khorne Army for just over $80. An entire assembled army for $1 per model. But the army was broken and horribly painted. He plans to repair and repaint everything and re-selling it on eBay. It’ll be interesting to see how much he’ll get.
In this first video, Casey strips, repairs, and repaints a Khorne Bloodthirster.
