'Collecting' actually kept me away from the mini hobby.

Damn 'Magic the Gathering up all my money'!!

By the time there were 'collectable' minis I had
recovered from this pernicious evil:((

OK, I do have a few Pirates; some Heroclix (bought individually for 50 cents each); and a lot of Rocketmen:AoE;

But I'm feeling MUCH better now ;^)

POLL DESCRIPTION

Writing in White Dwarf magazine, Jervis Johnson speculates that collecting is what draws many people into the wargaming hobby:

Indeed, for some people I've met it would appear to be the most important thing of all - come on, we all know someone whose greatest passion appears to be to have one of everything, and who are overcome with joy when they track down that extremely rare miniature they've been looking for.

On a scale of 0 to 10, where 10 is most important and 0 is no importance at all, what role did collecting have in drawing you into the hobby?
