Trying to get at least one update in before the end of September...

Kind of in a weird mood at the moment.

Every now and then, my collection hits a critical point where I have way more minis than I will ever be able to paint. Once this occurs, I generally ebay off a giant chunk of them and then start up again a few months later...collecting (hoarding) more little metal men.

This time though, I'm thinking about seriously thinning out the herd. There really isn't a reason for me to have every metal mini Reaper put out between 2004 to 2008 in my garage, but there they are. There really isn't a reason for me to have plastics for armies I sort of collected 13 years ago just laying around. I won't even get into the gigantic amounts of stuff I've accumulated for miniature games that died out a decade ago.

To this end, I will be putting up a vast amount of minis on Ebay over the next month. Try and sell off as much as humanly possible before surrendering the rest to Ken Cliffe to be melted down into 54mm Historicals.

My hope is to get the amount of stuff I have down to 1998 levels when I only dabbled in Reaper models and I only had enough Warzone stuff to field an Imperial army. Heck, I'd be happy if I could get it to where I can easily store the stuff in my hobby room instead of taking up a big corner of my garage.
