To buy or not to buy?

A coworker of mine is selling an Empire army for $300. It is assembled but not primed or painted.

My thoughts on this are as follows -
Pros -
price isn't bad (it's about $150-$200 less than it would be retail)
it's assembled and ready to play but I don't have to fix any bad paint jobs

I'm not done painting or playing my Dark Elves
I don't have a heck of a lot of painting or playing time
I'd have to store them

I'd have an unpainted army that I could easily throw in a box for travel without worrying about damage
I'd have a spare army for friends to play when they came out to visit

It's $300 and I just did Christmas presents and travel

So, my small number of readers, what do you think? Its especially relevant since you might be the beneficiary of such a purchase.
