It has been a while since I posted. Yes, I am still alive. Joining this forum suddenly got me curious about the contents my non-Games Workshop portion of the mini collection... After a light analysis of the situation, I have determined that: 1) I have a lot of minis, 2) I still want a lot of minis, 3) I can never have too many minis Am I a crazy miniature monster? My best guess at collector/hoarder levels are: 1) Regular Normie (non gamer) - 5 figures. A wizard, a bikini babe, a couple of dragons, and a fighter all accessorized with prismatic crystals, usually au natural (aka not painted). "I think wizards, dragons and gothic babes are way cool. Shiny!" 2) Gamer - 10 to 30 figures. A mix of characters they play in campaigns, plus the assortment Regular Normie figures. Most figures are unpainted, or basically painted. Only the couple of favourites have good paint jobs. "I have a half-giant barbarian figure in my gaming box. That's what I'm gonna play." 3) Dungeon Master - 25 to 150 figures. Mostly a large collection of monsters. All figures are at least primed, most figures are nicely painted. "Check out my new monster mini! New character sheets, anyone?" 4) Professional etsy/ebay'er Painter - 50 to 200 figures. Maybe 15 to 50 of them are in the growing "permanent" collection, with the rest listed online or in process of being prepped and painted. "Paint to fund my mini habit." 5) Gaming Otaku - 100 to 300 figures. A whole spectrum of figures in a whole range of poses. Almost all figures are well painted, except for the proudly displayed sealed box sets or blister packs. "Mint, New in package is the best. Professionally painted, carefully displayed in a plastic case is great too. Look at, but don't touch my minis." 5) RPG Geek - 200 to 700 figures. Mix of metal, resin, and plastic prepainted minis to cover both DM/GM'ing and playing. Most minis will have some level paint job. "Got to have enough minis to cover all the bases!" 6) Hobbist Painter, Avid Gamer - More than 500, but hopefully less than 1000... Collects minis as they are needed for gaming sessions. Favorites are expertly painted. Others are painted as needed. "Painting is fun. I love playing with my minis. Wana play tonight?!!" 7) Crazy Minis Monster - 1000 +... (full quantity will never be known) Lots and lots of minis in various stages of prepping and painting. A mini hospital storage box is around somewhere with rescued minis needing replacement parts and minor surgeries. "Not quit sure how many... Yeah, more than a 1000. But the battle minis and the pre-painted plastic ones don't count. And I did not count the ones that are on display either. Oh, and the oversized and demo minis are in a totally different category."
