The deep end of the hobby

This poor soul is definitely addicted, but he has the most impressive collection of miniatures! A triumph and tour de' force of painting!

And that was the first division of his collection!

I've seen this before. Makes me feel a lot better about my humble collection.
I like the way he's just stuck to one army.

Was it really? My goodness where does the year go.
I'm still keen to go on playing BP. It's definitely my favourite system. Prim I know you said you were playing Bolt Action. Did you ever get around to Zulu and Hail Caesar?
I'm holding back on Pike and Shotte until I get every single unpainted model done. It may be another year at this rate. I'm sorry I missed the history hammer. I worked out that I've had 5 games of Black Powder this year. 1 fantasy battle against Ten. 1 Mordheim and 1 Flames of War. And that's it!
No 40k as yet. Compared to previous years I'm pretty much semi retired.
Got in a game of Talisman at Spevnas and completed 2 rpg campaigns though which is something.
Lichemaster and Spawn of Azathoth.
I suppose it's not all that bad.

I haven't played BA yet, but I will, soon I hope. I have 1 force done and I'm working on my second. Zulu and HC will take longer due to the model count, but I will get them done.

We can but dream. Some day, no rush I suppose.

Haven't finished a Bolt Action force either yet. I had better get my skates on.
