I have never played but it look's like fun. The LGS nearby has a pretty big crowd that play's weekly. I have lost interest in video games(besides, I also have a PS3 that I am going to keep), so I figured if it was a good trade dollar wise, I might as well make it for something that I would play.

That is a massive collection. I would get it. It would be perfect for endless battles between you and your buddy.

If you want the latest models, I would buy only new models from the GW store.

We have no idea how many games he's including in his trade.

Its hard to say. How old are the models? Many may not be available in the current edition. If you're looking for tourny play, some may not be usable.

GW Sanctioned tournaments will allow any age GW model as long as it is WYSIWYG.

It's tough to tell what the value of the models listed are... it depends on their condition and whether they are metal or plastic, what edition, etc. But to give you an idea, I would estimate JUST the Imperial Guard models as somewhere between $700 - $800+ MSRP. Trade value would vary... probably half to 3/4 MSRP. And that's just for 1/6th of a trade. That's why I think it's a good deal... though, yes, I don't know exactly what you're putting up for it... you didn't mention how many games you are including with the XBOX.

edit: Oops, I missed that you are also including a Wii. I still think it's a good deal... but I'm a 40k fan and not into video games much, so I'm biased

Edit: Also, looking at the list a little more closely, there are a couple models included that do not have rules in the current edition... those being the tarantulas and the exocrine. (I apologize, Paul!) I wouldn't let that deter you.

I wont be playing any tournaments,I think.
I'm am trading the 360 with about 10 older games, including Rockband drums and guitar. Most of the games I picked up at garage sales, so no huge investment there. Also trading a Wii with everything that came with it and mario cart.No extra games.

Trade. Your computer games will only become more and more obsolete, while GW will continue to raise prices higher and higher.

If you're still not interested and he doesn't mind paying shipping and wants the complete set of Sims 2 and a few computers, lemme know!

I would take the deal in a heartbeat! You can always go to Games Workshop website and look up the names and you'll get prices. I haven't played for about a year or two, but looking at the Space Marines, you are well over $500 Retail.

Are his figures built and painted? That adds value to me since I just like playing and hate the modeling and painting part of the hobby (in fact right now I'm paying my 10 year old 50 cents per figure to paint some of my extra figures :-)

Examples off the top of my head:
5 Terminators $55
Rhino, Whirlwind, Predator at least $30 each
10 Space Marines $30
Characters can be $8 each depending on which ones
Snipers used to be 2 for $12, now I think 5 for $25

My guess is that the retail value is a couple thousand dollars easily which is way more than a xBox 360 & Wii.

Good luck in whatever you decide, but if you decide against doing it, send the "seller" my name :-)

Trade!!!!,

Play some games with your new soldiers, then keep the armies you like and trade the other stuff to complete those armies.

UPDATE 8/17/11

Ok, so I made the trade.Below are some pics of the units.They were all stored in Plano Tackle boxes but he must have had them in the garage for years because they were FILTHY. Took me a couple of weeks to clean them all out and sort them. Included in the pics are a massive Ork army that he forgot to list. However, he still owe's me the 'Nid army because it was not included. Also included but not shown were 2 copies each of all the armies Codex and 2 copies of the 2nd edition rules and one copy of the 3rd Edition book. Also not shown is 30 odd unpainted Chaos marines, 50-60 unpainted Orks and a bunch of other stuff( includeing unassembledspace marines). Now I just have to decide which edition rules to use.Any suggestions?

If you play with 3rd edition, you may latter upgrade to 5th (actual) edition without much trouble.

1 million dollars.

No, seriously, that is a SHIT TON of models. I can't comprehend the cash he spent on that, but I just sold a big army of Imperial Guard on Ebay and got $550. It was give or take as big a lot as his guard. But mine were mostly unpainted, and didn't include "out of edition" models.

I would use 5th edition. But sell what you don't want to use, and you could probably make your money back.

USED armies are hard to sell, as most people want them unpainted. So sometimes people are willing to "get out" of the hobby for a trade like yours...but man, ohhhh man, you got a great deal.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but there has got to be over $4000 in models there, no? Especially with cases, codices, etc.

Enjoy!!
