The first step is admitting it, right?
Is it because I’m a male? Or a Libra? Or because I grew up with some of the best toys around (yeah 80’s action figures!)?
All I know is…I need to stop using the internet, especially checking out TGN. I see too many utterly awesome new toys.
Take GW’s new Stormraven, for example.
This thing is beautiful! I love it.
But I don’t play Red Angels. I don’t play Space Marines. Heck, I don’t even really play 40k!
I have a small Tau force that I’m not really happy with, even though they’re still my favourite looking models overall. I guess I just didn’t play enough or get into the game enough to fully appreciate them.
But do you know who I do appreciate? Dark Eldar and the Stormraven. BECAUSE THEY LOOK SO DAMN GOOD!
And I’ve never even played them. I just saw them online and in White Dwarf and the boxes on the shelf. I read about them online and in White Dwarf and the back of the boxes on the shelf. That’s it. No other experience.
But I still want them. I feel like that girl in the picture book, Earings. “I want them. I NEED them.” She says that about earings. I say that about new models.
Is it wrong that I kinda want to get a Stormraven, just for the heck of it?
Sure it’ll take, what, $60 out of my upcoming $100/month budget. But it’s worth it for a sweet-ass model I’ll never use…right?
