I’ve talked before about my love of tabletop war games. If not, then know that I love them. When I was a wee lad my brother and I got Hero Quest for Christmas one year, and I’d spend hours flipping through the GW catalog that came inside that box. So many amazing looking miniature models, all so beautifully painted. I fell in love with the company then and there. Until I was older though and had a job that provided some discretionary income tabletop wargaming remained a dream. In 2001 or ‘o2 a hobby shop opened up in our area; I went in on my lunch as it was one of the few things, besides the mall, within walking distant of the community college I was attending. In one corner they had a selection of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,ooo products. My memories of that catalog came flooding back and I picked a few up. With the help of the internet a few became many and I found myself with an army:
I have two WH40K armies. These days I might play once every month or two. I almost always run my Necron army. There isn’t a lot of good ways to run a Necron army (there is only one) so it’s easy to prep for a game. My Ultramarine army though? So many choices, so many models, too many. I don’t have that kind of time anymore. So, instead of playing with it it’s sitting in my collecting dust.
So, what do I do with all this stuff? Sell it, give it away, hold on to it in the hopes that someday I have more time? Anything would be better than letting it sit in my closet longer. Taking up space that something else I don’t use could be occupying!
PS – If I ever learned how to take a decent picture of tiny objects close up… Everything looks like shit.
PPS – They’d look way cooler on a gameboard with a bunch of terrain. Like I have the time for that…
PPPS – If you click on the pictures they get really big and maybe look better?
