I’m pretty certain that for all of gamers, it’s all about balancing our hobbies. Many of the miniatures gamers I know are also board gamers. Others are video/PC gamers. RPGers. Book readers. Sports enthusiasts. Drinkers. Fathers. Etc. So the key is to balance the time and money spent between the hobbies.
Well, my gaming hobby budget is going to take a hit over the next few months, as after reading this week’s Sideshow Newsletter I’m afraid of how much I’ll be spending on my 1/6th hobby!
So, first off, the Infantry Battle Droids have been released…and I ordered two sets.
And then, over the next 30 days, more releases:
and Rock ‘n’ Roll.
And if all that isn’t enough…
They go and announce the STAP! Great!
Now, I saw all of these at San Diego Comic Con last summer. I was mesmerized. I spent quite a while ogling at the upcoming figures in their cases. But nothing prepares you for the price tag that these guys all come with. You can check them all out at the Sideshow website, or the Urban Samurai site for prices. But maybe you better not. You just might cringe a little.
Looks like I’ll be painting a lot more of my old minis in the near future…I won’t be able to afford any new ones!
Thanks for reading.
