I've just opened an auction on EBay for own my own personal copy of the Limited Edition version of Space Hulk (3rd Edition).

Link here:-
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 1195629709

I bought this from new on the day of its release and painted it up so that I could enter a tournament held at Maelstrom Games in 2010 (long before they went bust). Unfortunately I didn't win the tournament with my gaming skills, but my painting definitely got noticed and I won the "Best Painted" trophy for these figures. I will even include the trophy with this sale.

I have been painting miniatures for over 20 years and have won a competition or two for my painting during that time (including this one), so you know that the standard will be good. These photographs are of the actual miniatures that are for sale with the game. I could not photograph every single genestealer so I've tried to capture at least one of each different type, but I can confirm that all the miniatures are all fully painted.
I have tried to capture the quality as best as possible, but sadly my ability with a camera isn't as sharp as my ability with a paint brush.

The set is 100% complete and has been kept in fantastic condition - I like to look after my stuff. Included with the sale is a set of purpose-made Battlefoam Inserts to keep the figures secure and safe from damage (These were bought separately and cost £18 new). I have also included some printed sheets with extra rules that allow you to play the game solo.

This is a very reluctant sale but I'm in the midst of a huge clear out, and I just don't get time to play the game any more so it has to go.

I will start the auction at 99p with no reserve, so I am going to let this find its own price.
I always prefer to let auctions run so please don't ask for a Buy-It-Now price, however feel free to ask me any other questions.

ONE FINAL NOTE:- I am aware that Christmas is only just over and that cash might be tight, so I am willing to wait for payment of this item until after the end of January. However, I would ask that payment is received before 5th Feb at the very latest (via Paypal). I will not send the game out until payment has been received.

That is truly beautiful. I hope you get a price that justifies the effort you have put in to painting and preserving it.

Amazing. You should run a side-sweepstake for how much it goes for. I reckon £120.

PG, you're near Nottingham aren't you? Will you be at NAFC? If you can arrange handover there that might be a bonus for a few here!

Wow, that's swell! Too bad you've got to sell this man, hope you get a good price for it! :D

FWIW, I think this wil easily go over the £250 mark, as I believe people ask £100+ for an unpainted set! :smoking:

Thanks for the comments! I wasn't expecting that :oops:
I literally had no idea what to charge this at, so took the risk and started it at 99p - the interest it has generated is a bit overwhelming, if I'm honest!

Yes I'm near Nottingham. I'm sure I can drive over to hand over the set to save on postage if it helps people out.

Hi Norse,

Just thought I would give you fair warning... I'm being quoted almost £70 for shipping to America :-?
This thing weighs in at 3.5kg which means our beloved Royal Mail won't touch it when it comes to overseas shipping.

You may need to factor that in when measuring the length of your arms :lol:

I am amazed at how low the current bid is for this! Hopefully justice will be done in the last few days.

I'm hoping so.... it has a phenomenal amount of watchers. I'm hoping some of them will actually start bidding and they're not just all interested in how much it sells for :lol:

Yeah, I see shipping will be high, though as my mom still lives in the UK, I have back-up plans. ;-)

When you factor in:

I love Space Hulk
I missed the release a year or two back
I don't paint much these days

I'm willing to take the plunge. You can keep the painting trophy, I have a few of my own! ;-)

I take it all game pieces are there??
