Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Please… no more miniatures!

Midwinter Minis has a new video up about buying gifts for gamers which aren’t yet more miniatures to paint!

This is a subject close to my heart as I get through my massive pile, which is now reduced by around 90% from when I started – but 90% is not 100%!

In terms of gifts, paints, brushes, basing and fiction or rulebooks are all good options in my opinion.

This year I’m getting a new set of paint brushes and absolutely no new models. Although I think 3D print files don’t count as new minis!

    I completely agree. I really don’t want new minis right now. Not when I’m finally making progress on my shame pile! STLs however, those are totally fine. 😉

      Yes, .stl files hit the sweet spot of being able to pick up minis without adding to the backlog!

    To be fair the only person who buys me minis is myself so I have no one else to blame! This year I am close to getting dungeon bowl. I may well sell the minis though

      I picked up Dungeonbowl with no intention to use the minis – so they haven’t been added to my backlog!

    Hahah I’ll be getting a ton of terrain and a few models this year as gifts. Though it’s all 15mm so it doesn’t count. Of course, whjat I bought myself it a different story….

      More terrain sounds good – I am getting paint brushes only this year!
