I've finally decided that I have a lot of stuff.
History books, reference works.....stuff.
I've organized, sorted, sifted.
I've given away stuff. I've thrown stuff away.
And yet, I still have a lot of stuff.
How did I get all this stuff? Where did it come from?
Do I really think I'll read a book about the South American War of the Pacific?
I think I've reached the point where I'm very likely done buying figures for new periods. Why? I don't need any more! I have, painted and unpainted, listed chronologically:
War of the Roses
English Civil War
Great Northern War
Seven Years War
American War of Independence
Napoleonics (British, French, Austrian, Prussians, Spanish, Russians, Portuguese)
American Civil War
Plains Indian Wars
Early WW1 (British, French, German, Russian)
Late WW1 (British, French, German, US)
Early WW2 (French, German)
Early WW2 Desert
Late WW2 (USA, Soviet, German, UK)
Stuff. Lots of stuff - all 25mm. 62 plastic shoe boxes of unpainted stuff.
Oh sure...I'll buy more stuff. But its fill in stuff - the odd support weapon or unusual troop type needed (yeah right - needed) to fill out an OB.
Books? My collection in books mirrors the figure collection above. Sorted, sifted, given away, thrown away. My books feel like family.
Where is this blog post going?
I don't know. I just have a lot of stuff.
