Hello all,

I have been slowly working towards a goal of acquiring a certain number of original GW Epic Eldar parts from Epic 40,000 and Epic Armageddon. To achieve this goal, I've been keeping an eye out here and on eBay, looking for good deals.

Recently, I was able to make a trade with Primarch to get most of the things I needed.

Then, I saw this embarrassment of riches come up on eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Games-workshop ... 2749.l2649

So, of course, I bought it. I needed some of the super heavies and the metal infantry, and I knew I could sell off most of the rest and get my money back.

Now, other than forumware revenants, wraithlords, hornets, and lynxes, I have all of the epic Eldar models that I want.

I will start listing the individual blister packs on eBay soonish, but in the meantime I thought I would let you guys know what I was planning on selling and see if anyone wanted to make a trade.

Here is what I have available to trade:
    3 x Eldar Command blister packs [E:40k]
    3 x war walkers blister packs [E:40k]
    2 x wraithlord blister packs [E:40k]
    2 x vypers blister packs [E:40k]
    4 x falcons blister packs [E:40k]
    2 x fire prisms blister packs [E:40k]
    8 x wave serpents blister packs [7 x E:40k and 1 x E:A]
    4 x scorpion super heavy grav tank blister packs [E:40k]
    3 x cobra super heavy grav tank blister packs [E:40k]
    1 x webway gate blister pack [E:40k]
    2 x revenant blister packs [E:40k]
    2 x nightwing blister packs [E:40k] (one of the models in one of the blisters is the super rare missile pod variant)
    5 x phoenix blister packs [E:40k]
    5 x vampire blister packs [E:40k]

    1 x bag of resin wave serpents [FW]

    2 x storm serpent super heavy grav tank blister packs [E:A]*
    1 x void spinner super heavy grav tank blister pack [E:A]*
    3 x Dire Avenger /Fire Dragon blister packs [E:A]*
    2 x shining spears blister packs [E:A]*
    1 x revenant titans new in sealed box [E:A]*

* I haven't quite convinced myself to sell these yet, but I will entertain offers.

and I have the following items that are loose:
    6 x set of 3 x scatter laser platforms + 3 x D-cannon platforms [E:40k and/or E:A]
    9 x set of 3 x missile launcher platforms + 3 x D-cannon platforms [E:40k]
    2 x set of 3 x star cannon platforms + 3 x D-cannon platforms [E:40k]
    6 x set of 3 x shuriken cannon platforms + 3 x D-cannon platforms [forumware and E:40k]
    2 x Avatar [E:A] (no scenic base or court of the young king)
    2 x Webway Gate [E:40k]

And on top of all of that, I still have the Space Elf objectives (that I designed a long time ago) available.

I am looking for forumware revenants, wraithlords, lynxes, and hornets; maybe forumware wraithguard as well. Paypal is also acceptable, but the going rate for things is pretty high these day, so trades will be more reasonable, I think.

I will also trade for the 1995 Warhammer Quest Catacombs of Terror box (or just the contents), in case anyone has one of those old gems just lying around.

PM me if you have an interest in making a trade.

There isn't much to the model. It is only rare, it isn't spectacular.

Of the 5 Epic 40,000 blister packs of nightwings that I have been personally familiar with, only 3 packs had one of these models. That pegs the ratio at 3 models out of 15, vs 12 models out of 15 for the common variant - i.e. the common variant is 4 times more common than the missile pod variant. And for the sake of completeness, the Epic Armageddon blister packs only had the normal variant.

I can only assume that the model did not cast as well as the normal model, which is a shame, because it's basically a nightwing with 3 x missile launchers.

It doesn't even show up on the Eldar flyers page from the Epic 40,000 catalog over on Stuff of Legends, which is odd because that catalog lists all of the variants of all of the other Epic Eldar models from that time.

Photos of the model in question, taken from my own collection, are shown below. I apologize for my crappy cell phone camera.
