Warhammer 40K Tau Empire and Ork Armies; Beware Picture Heavy

I very much regret doing this, but college is expensive so up for sale is the majority of my Tau and Ork armies. I'd like to sell them all off as a one but I'm willing to split the armies. Unless you don't mind them shipping loose in a flat rate box I'd like to keep this sale local, as I don't have the army case foam necessary to properly package them.

Take one army for $200 or take both for $300, OBO

Firewarriors; 11 of the models were painted by my local Games workshop staff (along with the Crisis suits); I won them in a raffle. The 11 black warriors have been stripped of paint, a quick coat of primer will clean up the leftover mess and leave you with a nice model you can paint to match your scheme. The remaining 12 models are my first attempts at painting these models; they can be stripped of paint using a cleaner such as LA's Awesome or other methods and re-primed. All missing pieces have been accounted for and are included.

Forgeworld XV81; This model has been taken apart and stripped of paint. All original bits are included, as well as a custom made Cyclic Ion Blaster. The weapons are interchangeable as long as you do not glue them in place. Comes with random bits including four Crisis Suit heads and Commander Shadowsun's helmet.

Crisis Battlesuits; These were also painted by the Games Workshop staff. All broken pieces are accounted for and included, and the set includes all the wargear and weapons that would normally come in a set. Most of these weapons are magnetized and fit into the slots on the model, allowing you to pick and choose your models setup every game.

Broken Battlesuits; All pieces are accounted for except for one flying base, which can be included if desired. The second model is obviously in need of repair, but all the pieces are there. Included with the weapons shown.

6 Complete XV25 Stealth Suits; Three are complete and painted, as shown, three are black primed and pinned but not glued. This was to allow easier painting. One of the unpainted suits has been magnetized to allow for weapon swaps. A bag of bits is included.

6 Gun Drones; Four are complete, two are missing the flying stands, one's weapons are in need of repair.

Sniper Drone Squadron; Complete, one drone broken but repairable, all pieces are included.

Apocalypse Vehicle Command Sprue; Both include the Tau vehicle bits as well as Chaos Space Marines and Eldar. For use with Apocalypse Formations.

3 Hammerhead Gunships; One painted, one base coated, one stripped. All include the Railgun and Ion Cannon weapons which are magnetized to the turret for easy weapon swaps. Flying bases are also magnetized. Comes with all the bits pictured, including all antennae for repairing the Sensor Spines and Target Locks on the models. One Gunship is completely magnetized to allow it to be easily converted to a Devilfish Troop Transport. One compete Skyray turret is included, also with magnetized missile options.

Convertible Tank; From Hammerhead...

To Devilfish;

All bits to fix the antennas are included;

Random Bits Bag; Random assortment of bits including two magnetized Crisis Suit arms that are repositioned and Broadside Battlesuit feet and Smart Missile System arms.

Vespid Stingwings; 8 pewter Vespid total, including the Strain Leader. All pieces are included. Easily stripped with acetone, just make sure to remove them from their plastic base first as acetone melts plastic.

Pirannah Skimmers; All but the black primered model have magnetized flying bases, and all include both the fusion blaster and burst cannon bits. Two have been magnetized to allow for easy weapon swaps, and all bits are included to complete the models. Pilots for both un-primered models are not glued in place to allow for easy painting.
