...I'll probably have to buy every single Bones mini that will be released. Just so I have them all (... Pokemoooon!)

This. When the speculation in the thread about the next Bones KS turned to a sci-fi or modern focus, I quietly wept. I know that, despite my utter lack of interest in those types of figures, I won't be able to set any sort of "I only collect this particular kind of Bones figures" restrictions on myself, and I'll spend a bunch of money on things I don't particularly care for.

Personally, I'm planing to throw one or more "painting parties" in which I convince my friends to each chip in a few bucks, and in return I supply brushes, paint, snacks, and their choice of one of my unwanted minis to paint and take home.

Your very own "paint and take". not a bad idea. except I'm a compulsive completionist. I'd happily give some away, but then I'd have to buy them again. Sounds messed up, but that might work if I convinced myself that I "will" buy them soonTM.

Well, I'm pretty happy with what I ordered. If I were to regret anything it's that I'll have to paint the damn things. And my deadline is "whenever Dwarven Forge comes".

 

I'd have liked to get the paint sets but I already have the full range of Minitaire, Games Workshop, and a smattering of Vallejo and other brands..

 

Some of the giants might have been nice.

Not picking up more stuff... and especially not picking up more dragons. I got one each of the big two undeads, and one of the "here be dragons & the hydra & the clockwork" but missed the other live dragons.

 

<sigh> mostly I guess just regretting I didn't buy more.

I regret passing up Kaladrax, the bone giant and the two paint sets I didnt add on. I'm still trying to figure out how to explain to my family why a huge box of miniatures arrived at our door step. I was thinking of lying with something like Oh look honey they accidentally delivered it to the wrong house but we should keep it because it was meant to be. But she will see right through me because of my sheepish grin and then she will check the label, so I will just have to tell her the truth and then get dragged to the mall to buy her a nice new purse because I'm in trouble, again. :unsure:

Have pre-emptive chocolate on hand. Better yet, have a romantic evening planned to make it up to her. Maybe she'll then equate you getting minis with spending time with her! (and then she won't see you for weeks while you paint all the minis...)

 

Huzzah!

You might end up buying alot of chocolate based on when you think the minis will arrive. More romantic evenings are always good though. At that point she'll think the chocolate gifts and romantic evenings are routine and the minis will still be an issue when they arrive. And then you disappear to paint minis. This won't end well.

Now that the stuff is in my hands, I can answer this more fully. I regret not getting Orcapolypse and Ebonwrath. I regret forgetting to order extra Haunts for my son. (I gave him the ones out of my Vampire box.) And I should have added the Mythos Monsters too...

 

(I should have doubled up on several of the dragons but what can you say?)

I got pretty much everything, but now regret not getting another 20 Kaladrax's or so... Okay maybe not 20, but a couple more at least. I can think of 2 people who would be thrilled if I surprised them with them... and then tell me off because they have nothing to paint them with. I am evil like that. :devil:

I'm seriously regretting not getting ALL THE PAINTS, since they were a bit cheaper during the KS and I know I'm going to end up getting most of them one way or another. :P

 

I'm also actually regretting not getting Kaladrax. Sure he's freaking ginormous and we'd have absolutely nowhere to put him when he's all put together, but...the box could have found space in the closet and we won't be living in this shoebox of an apartment forever. Plus, I mean, $10. Oh well, I'll know better for the next KS. ^_^

 

Huzzah!
