This month, we're revisiting an old topic - The Stash: Why so many kits?

The Warhammer stash is, as I mentioned, an entirely different thing. It's a mild obsession, based on my habit of collecting things and needing to complete collections (see here for a cataloguing project for an 'investment' habit I managed to kick years ago). I don't play the game any more- I nearly got the wife into Lord of the Rings, but that was a non-starter. My stepson quit playing a few years ago, to pursue more interesting things like video games and girls. Fair enough, but who will I skirmish with now? More to the point, I'm stuck with armies and armies of part-started, and still-sealed models that are worth only a fraction of what I paid for them. Of course, they might pull in more money once they're all painted to decent standard, so I should keep them for that purpose.

Excuses, eh? We all use them. Maybe it's easier to find BS excuses for our obsessions than to delve into 'real' self-analysis.
Boiled down, I think these things all represent bits of me: my past; my future. Things that a 'Kodak moment' can't always express.
|Predator WIP is not a permanent fixture in front of the wedding pic.|
BTW, if anyone want to come over and help me tidy my garage, I won't mind.
