Games Workshop Paints, Glues, Basing Kits & Models Car Boot Sale Bargain!

I love car boot sales and every week through the car boot sale season I go hunting for bits I need for the home, the garden, the car and even my shop, but this car boot season I am also on the hunt for anything Warhammer related – paints, brushes, basing kits, models, magazines – pretty much anything. On Sunday (15th May 2016) I was very lucky to find this lot!
Carbooty! Layers, base, shades, spray and technical paints all for £50!
Everything in this picture, including a three tier plastic drawer storage unit cost me just £50!  The seller had purchased all this along with a few other items intending to get started with the hobby but never really got into it.  A few of the paints have been used, as well as a tiny bit of glue and Chaos Black spray but on the whole this lot is completely unused!

Additionally, the seller also provided the original receipt for this lot, which includes a few items that he did not have for sale at the car boot sale, but does not quite include all that I did buy.  His receipt showed a total cost of £202.
Now, all is not great with this bounty because it now means I have about 30 duplicate paints, the glue pots that have been used will likely be no good now so will go in the bin and some of the paints will need some really good mixing to rejuvenate them enough to be useable but I can live with this.
I am really happy with the models though.  I have never painted any of these but have always wanted to give them a go but not wanted to waste money on models I don’t have much interest in (I'm not a 40K fan).  Now though, I have a few to play around with.

Mixing the Paints

Steel Ball BearingsI have ordered a pack of 100 8mm ball bearings from eBay, costing just £2.80 including postage.  I intend to place two balls in each pot so that when shaking the pots to mix the paint properly the balls will help the process along faster and give a better mix.  If I have any left over ball bearings I will put them in my other paint pots – they can only help.


I think I did okay with this car boot sale bargain and its certainly going to go a long way toward filling up my paint rack! While some of the paint’s and glues may be too far gone to be useful, the majority of this stuff is brand new and unopened so will definitely still be useable. Considering my nearest Warhammer store is some 20 plus miles away this booty will undoubtedly save me money in one-off trips to pick up a paint that I need.
One last thing, spell checking this post before publishing was mental due to all the paint names!
