When you start a new period, does it become like an obsession to you?

So much research to do!

Yes. I have often found that I go a bit overboard at first. Planning and buying. I'm learning to slow down.

Is there any other way to jump into a new period/scale? I become obsessed at what ever project ……..oh look shiny.

Winston Smith25 Oct 2018 7:49 p.m. PST

I have absolutely no plans to start a new period….
Oooooh! Shiny!

Oh, God, yes. However, I think it's part of what keeps the hobby interesting and fresh – always new things to learn and discover!

I'm certainly learning more about WWII Hungarians than I would have known a year ago.

Oh yes, I started with the Northern Crusades, Russki's VS Teutonics and now I'm onto the Volga bulgars and Finno-Ugrian warriors!

No. I've been fairly focused on WWII for several years now. I keep working on my 15mm sci-fi and I've been ‘treating' myself to a small collection of 3 different lines of minis since I got a new job with a very significant pay raise.

My regular gaming group dabbles in several different genres/periods but they pretty much have everything needed so I don't need to obsess!

Not really – more like a slow burn

coopman26 Oct 2018 6:41 a.m. PST

Why would anyone be interested in WW2 Hungarians?

Legion 426 Oct 2018 7:44 a.m. PST

I started 6mm sci-fi in '90 and I'm still "obsessing" … evil grin

Yes it does, though I try not to ignore old projects.
