I have hobbyius in extremis

Okay. It’s time to admit that I have a problem. I’m not the only one, but I’m the only one admitting it here. I have hobbyius in extremis. Or, in plain English, “Oooh, look! Something new and awesome to buy!”
I’ve just sold my Circle Orboros warpack and used the money to buy some Infinity Combined army Morats and a Bloody Barnabas and Calaban figure to start a Hordes Minions army.
It’s time to say, “ENOUGH, games and miniatures producers! Stop making such awesome rulesets and miniatures that make me crave like a ravenous craving … thing.”

What? Do you really think it’s my fault?

Back in the day, it was all about the Warhammers. I am personally responsible for consuming nearly three kilos of Skaven miniatures, at least six whole figures of which were painted before finally throwing in the towel and off loading them.
These days, you can’t throw a D6 without hitting a new games company who will happily “hook you up”. Diverse choices like Warmachine and Hordes, Malifaux, Infinity, Warpath and Bushido to name but a few!
My disease has me sprawling out in all directions and I will publicly list my shame, or more accurately my incomplete projects here for all to see. Hopefully this will keep me a bit focused on stuff I should be doing!
In no particular order, the list (taken largely from this site!) …

  • Bloodbowl Goblin team
  • Bloodbowl Necromantic team
  • Bloodbowl Ogre team
  • Warhammer 40000 Space Marine army (1750 points)
  • Warhammer 40000 Dark Eldar army (1750 points)
  • Warhammer 40000 Deathwing army (1750 points)
  • Warhammer Fantasy Battle Wood Elf army (2500 points)
  • Malifaux Resurrectionists (35 Soulstones)
  • Malifaux Gremlins (35 Soulstones)
  • Infinity Combined army (250 points)
  • Infinity Bakunin Jurisdictional Command (250 points)
  • Bushido Temple of Ro-Kan
  • Dark Age Outcasts
  • Hordes Minions (35 points)
  • Other random models that looked like they would be fun

I am also in the process of disposing of a Warhammer Ogres army (probably!), and have successfully sold or traded A Hordes Circle Orboros warpack and a Warhammer Chaos Warriors army.

Okay, there’s my shame for all to see. Having had a look at it, I’m pretty pleased! There’s a HEAP of work to do across a range of models, settings and even scales (technically). How can I be pleased, you ask? It means that if I get bored of painting fantasy footballers, for example, I can always switch to painting evil Space Elves! So, my hobbyius in extremis should be more than enough to keep me amused for the foreseeable future.

It’s pretty awesome, really. There are worse diseases to have; I had this one friend who ….
