Without reading the article – yes is the answer.

Have you seen anyone's lead pile?


Hi! I'm Eric and I'm a Wargaming Addict! (CHORUS: Hi Eric!)

I do it professionally (I'm on Exercise) and as a hobby.

My latest addition is 1/32nd scale WW2 and 15mm ACW.

It's been 24 hours since my last eBay purchase or painting jag.

Funny-ish, but yet somehow not…

No. Wargaming CAN become compulsive, but addiction requires physical, not psychological withdrawal symptoms.

So…whenever GW or Battlefront puts out a new edition, invalidating units or armies, and wiping out existing rule books, codexes and the like, they're striking a blow against addiction?
