I have a couple of things I would say I am obsessed with, that I can mention on here anyway…cough.
The Walking Dead for instance. Star Wars! Yes I am a stereotypical Geek. I would also say I have an unhealthy obsession with Chocolate. Tickling my forearms is another quirk I have and scratching the inside of my ears with a pen lid. Try it people.
A while ago I put up a post about how many miniatures I have. Not to gloat just to count them really.
Since then I have made a small dent in actually painting them but it’s been a lot of fun.
However, despite having soooooo many little men waiting to be painted, I still find myself on the hunt and buying more.
It’s like I just can’t get enough.
I wouldn’t say I have an overly addictive personality but when it comes to this old/new hobby of mine I am clearly obsessed.
I’ve started to spread my wings a little more when it comes to the manufacturers and I’ve even discovered (I am very slow on some things… A lot of things) Kickstarter Mini’s.
There are also some up and coming manufacturers/artists too like this guy https://heresyofus.com/
What I put my obsession down to, mostly, is YOU! Yes YOU! The Sculptor, the Painter, the Converter, the Hobbyist, the Wargamer, the Enthusiast, the Writer, the Photographer and, of course, the Blogger.
You all inspire me to, not only, get better at all aspects of the hobby but to also push my imagination.
I’m often astounded at my own obsession and the fact that I really lose myself in this hobby. When I take a step back I think, wow I’m insane. Then the moment passes and I’m straight onto eBay looking for that perfect bit to use as a Archeotech for some deranged, rusted, fallen Space Marine haha.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on your own fall into this miniature world of ours.
How full on is your obsession?
Does it consume a good portion of your thoughts each day?
