Well mypromise to myself that I will not start any more projects has been blown out of the water, yet again!! After looking at the posts showing peoples AWI projects i have said I do it in 28mm and 15mm no way I am going to do it in 10mm no matter how good they look. WRONG!! I have sent off for a pack of British infantry and a pack of grenadiers to see how they look. I do know that when I get them I will be rushing headlong into this, my missus is buying me a couple of army packs for Christmas, whatever I want so I pretty much know what they will be!!! Anyway is there such an organisation as Wargamers Anonymous who can help me with my addiction!! My name is Donnie and I am a wargamer who can't stop collecting........

I thought this forum was wargamers anonymous  :-\

I know i could never make a promise like that, so i told myself not to buy anything unless i finish up everything i have lying about for one of my projects.

Gets me painting once and a while, and isn't too restrictive (if i would stop buying untill everything i have is finished, i would never have to buy again!)

There are many worse things to be that a wargaming addict.

For example, you could like line dancing.
Wine snob.
Enthusiastic Golfer.
LARPer.
Hedgehog smuggler.

Or you could make candle holders from "found objects" and give them to friends and family as presents.

Like patterned 'floppy' sticks, that suddenly come to life and bite you on the finger, when you pick them up.

Well i find the odd frog in my garden, that doesn't bite, but having a small animal jump around your house with a burning candle is not the best of idea's!




4 posts and already a derailed thread. That's a record for me. Yeey me!   ;D
