9 Crisis Suits on ebay
« on: July 02, 2010, 12:07:44 AM »
With the rise of VAT (tax) here in the UK Crisis Suits have gone up from £12 each to £13.50 each.  I must thank BloodyDrunk for getting me three Crisis Suits for my birthday this year!

I found an auction selling

  • 9 Built and primed Crisis Suits.  Already equipped with magnets!
  • 6 Gun Drones
  • 5 custom built Shield Drones. (The shield drones were made by sticking Shield Generators to the bottom of Gun Drone heads.)

Now I don't have an infinite budget (curse you reality!) However 9 Crisis Suits brand new run £121.50.  Add the cost of magnets (which I use), Chaos Black primer, and what not, I figured I'd have a go at purchasing them.  

Well £80 was all I could stretch the budget for (and I really had to stretch, I will have to cut back to one meal a day to make up for it  :wink: ) and I got them for £79.40!  That is £8.82 per Crisis Suit fully assembled.  A savings of £28.30.

Not a bad deal.

Now the loss of 7 Gun Drones slightly irritates me, but I have plenty to spare.

However I've now exceeded my army case.  So I'm thinking of getting Battle Foam for my Crisis Suits and for my Vehicles.  However that will have to wait as I don't want to sacrifice my only meal of the day.

Well they arrived yesterday and in perfect condition!  I now have 16 crisis suits!  :o

The best part is the guy that built them used the same magnetic polarity as I did with my crisis suits.  This means I can use my magnetised weapons on my new Crisis Suits without the weapons being repelled!  I got lucky there.

Now I have a lot of painting to do.

Took out the old GW Paint gun and base coated all of my Crisis Suits, Broadsides and my Pathfinder squad.

Now to start painting them
