If I had only reaaranged..... Then I would be done now. But since I was at it, I began sorting through the years of nerdyness. A lot of good stuff showed up, some of that I actually forgot I had. And some of it, I know I will never use. That goes up for sale. Already ASDRUBAEL VECT has found a new home by Paul from Sho3box. Some orc pirate heads and 3 ork musicians will find their way to Australia. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. As I go through it I realize that some of my projects, will never be.
S.M.S. That stands for Shiny Model Syndrome. And I have suffered for over 18 years. Let me explain;
A new model of army X is released. You do not play army X. Nor do you infact play that system or indeed you may not know the rules for that. It does not matter, the model is great! YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT! "And what are you going to use it for?" Could be cool for a conversion, or just to paint, or in a diorama or when I get around to start that army up and learn the rules or.... Oooh... that miniature is pretty too!!!
I am proud to stand forth and say that I suffer from S.M.S. And am not ashamed. I have learned to live with this, and actually now, I am able to put a miniature back and NOT buy it. (Does not happen often, but it does happen.) And I am getting better at letting go. Seriously, I want these miniatures to be painted and to be used. That is why they have to move on.... Sigh....
Also found Grom the pauch from warhaer, well his chariot. Actually two of his chariot. WTF? 5 Mordheim Zealots. 3 Uhlan cavalry for Khador in Warmachine.... And much more to come. Uptill now I have only bought from Ebay, this may be a good time to see if I can sell it there.
On the plus side, it may give me some money to buy those lovely miniatures I saw the other day... CURSE YOU SHINY MODEL SYNDROME!!!!
