Just received my latest ebay purchase - for 57 US dollars (plus shipping) I received:

Metal cave troll with spear (had just bought one of these, so don't know what I will do with this one)
12 moria goblins (great, more goblins to paint)

some LOTR scenery pieces (fallen statue pieces, statue)

Uruk Hai command (metal)
2 Uruk Hai w/crossbow (metal)
3 Uruk Hai berserkers (metal)
30 Uruk Hai warriors
8 warg riders (2 metal)
Isengard Battering Ram (metal)
3 Mordor Uruk Hai (metal)
23 Moror Orcs

Mounted Faramir (metal)
48 Warriors of Rohan
47 Warriors of Minas Tirith

3 Galadhrim Elf bowmen (metal) (not sure if that is what these are)

3 Easterlings (metal)

So, basically about 30 cents a figure.

The usual ebay purchase, some aren't painted the way I would want, some broken weapons, etc. I figure what I can't fix I will use for conversion parts.

Some of the metal figures are already in the nail polish remover bath, some of the plastic are in the Simple Green bath.

I just got 9 of the new Mirkwood elves and 2 of the new Mirkwood cav. And for the price I essentially got the Cav and 1guy for free, which is nice considering neither cav had sword arms. I've never used greenstuff before, but the arms I made look okay, so I'm pleased with the purchase. Now just waiting for Thranduil on Elk to come out.

I do not know if this was the intention of this thread, but I picked up:

Eowyn
Eomer
Aragorn (small head version that goes with the mounted version)
Gandalf the White (incognito version)
Merry Captain w/ shield
Pippin Captain
Hunter Legolas
Gimli
Faramir in Heavy
3 uruk scouts

all metal for 29 bucks, used a ebay gift coupon to drop it to 4 bucks out of pocket. This rounds out a couple of foot-versions that I needed, a few prominent hole-fillings, and supplies me with much loved metal scouts.

OP: Grand job on your haul, that is fantastic!

Just got the windlance model. Happened upon a buy now, newly listed one for half the gw price. Was thinking about just using the windlance part of the model but it came already primed and assembled, guess I can live with that for the price.

Still ambivalent about the model itself - if they needed one to defend against dragons, rocs, other large flying beasts; why did they only build one? Now I just need to decide on what kind of platform to put it on.

Ever since I have been getting WETA's 1:30 Dol Guldur, (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=33058) I have been looking on Ebay for the Necromancer. Been tempted to just buy it off of GW itself, but I enjoy the game of Ebay. My waiting has paid off, just got a Necromancer for 1/3 the price that GW sells it for!

I like the menacing pose, thinking of having it hover more as if floating. Right now it I just have it on a paperclip, have to decide how high I want it and how to paint it.

The Galadriel figure is very delicate, I hesitated just clipping it off the spruce. I just have it tacked together for the picture, trying to figure out if it is easier to paint with it put together or in pieces.

Ended up paying £25 for Angbor the Fearless. On a whim - I don't do retail therapy beyond models and other geek things why not?

No amazing bargains, although in Canada we have a kind of online buy/sell/trade site called kijiji that I've been perusing. Some interesting things here, unfortunately many are in Ontario. :-(

Speaking of Kijiji...

I just scored a lot off there for $50. It included mounted Aragorn and Theoden from the Warg Attack set; 3 Knights of Dol Amroth on foot, Theoden, Aragorn, Gamling, Eowyn, Haldir and Banner Bearer from Heroes of Helm's Deep; 2 metal Rangers of Gondor, Frodo, Sam and Gollum from Captured by Gondor and 3 weapon arms from Rohan Royal Guard on foot. Not a bad haul over all!
