Besides miniatures, do you collect anything?

 

Not really.  I've collected a small stack of games that I need to play sometime, but once it got large enough I quit buying more.

Treasures that would largely be considered trash by most "real" people. Though I left a lot of my treasures in Texas when I moved, I continue to accumulate cool little bits that I KNOW will someday be the crowning touch to some piece or other that I create.

Collecting (J20th):

 

I use to collect a ton of stuff, comics, gaming books & other stuff mentioned on here, but I lost interest in comics around 91, 92 (back when the SPECIAL EDITION!!!!!...:rolleyes: covers were all the rage, or look Wolverine is guest starring this month, ummm I get his comic, why do I wanna read about him here). About the only comic series that survived the "Purge" was Bone. Funny how a simple black & white comic was the one that came out of it. Gaming book, more or less dwindled down to digital books & really just 1 system these days. Thou I have gotten Pathfinder & Starfinder, with just a couple of books for Pathfinder 2.

 

I do collect Magic the Gathering cards, but not to play or to sell so I can retire later on, but I get the ones with squirrel artwork in them. 

 

Smell (J21th):

 

I think my favorite smell is probably the smell of rain on concrete aka Petrichor. Just one smell if I'm outside & it rains & it comes up, I have just stop & take a deep inhale.

Books.  I have more books than miniatures.  BTW, my wife would say everything.

The smell of food cooking. Various flavours can be included. Be it fresh bread, a hearty vegetable soup, bacon. All invoke pleasant memories of family gatherings.

 

It's a shame my sense of smell has degraded so much in the past several years. Everything is much more bland now.

Hmm, tough one. Either my wife's perfume on her, or [memory time here] my Grandma's place, it was loaded with wonderful smells from a lifetime.

I kinda agree with @Corsair here, the freshly split wood,  freshly baked bread, roasts, wood fires, and probably a hundred other smells that all combine to say 'grandparents house'.

Absolute favourite I'm so not mentioning, but there's definitely something downright amazing about being at a teppan restaurant and having them cook riiight jn front of you.  So I'm going with that. 

 

....Because no way am I saying it's the smell of a Venti White Chocolate Mocha, I can stop having them as a treat aaanytime now!

I seem to be collecting art books, though only a handful would I count as 'collectible' (vintage out of print stuff I had to track down). I like to have a solid reference shelf, and I do.

Other than that I'm not much of a collector type.
