I voted "not at all", but I am not sure that is because I am the master of my universe, as opposed to the idea that I easily have enough figures on hand to paint for the next few years…

It really depends on what the etc. covers. I have more than enough in the lead pile to keep me busy for a year (possibly even a decade) but I'd need to replace paint, brushes etc.
This coming year is likely to be a frugal year so that I can concentrate my efforts on finishing existing projects and starting on the new stuff I have bought over the last couple of years.

I have cut down figure purchases for several years now. My lead/plastic pile is also being trimed. I am only buying figures that fill in a spot in existing armies/rules. Too much wasted money over the years doing the "ohh shiney" thing.

It gives you a chance to finally break out the stuff in storage and have a go at it rather than pursue the latest "ooh shiny"

I wouldn't run out of figures to paint, but I might miss some opportunities, especially at conventions. And one army (6mm WWII Italy) would remain unfinished which might otherwise be ready to fight.

I didn't buy figures for almost a decade. Still have unpainted lead.

Since I buy most of my figures at shows that would probably mean not going to shows for a year. That would be a big hit on my social life. Nice for my bank balance but not good for my mental health as someone who suffers from moderate to severe depression.

I have enough unpainted figs to keep me busy for many, many years
I think last year I bought a grand total of 36 figs and painted many more than that

A year of not buying figures doesn't compute. I have enough unpainted figures to last me 2 lifetimes, and at best I have less than 1/2 a lifetime to go. However, "oh shiny" syndrome still hits me regularly. I spent about £300.00 GBP at Salute and another £50.00 GBP today…somehow, I need to stop, don't I?

I was away from the hobby for about 15 years and bought no figures, so I am guessing it wouldn't bother me too much.

I missed out on a lot of miniatures I wanted when I was just out of grad school and starting a family (Looking at you FASA Trek). Now that I'm an empty nester, I'm not conditioned to let what I want slip away, no matter how deep my lead pile is.

A year without buying figures would be a breeze. Spent a total of £30.00 GBP on figures last year.
Most of that was on 6mm MDF flats from Commission Figurines,rare impulse buy after seeing them in the flesh.
|Coelacanth ||14 Apr 2019 2:56 p.m. PST|
It has been several years since I've bought any figures, so…

Finally a reason to vote "this is ridiculous".
|FusilierDan ||15 Apr 2019 4:29 a.m. PST|
I don't think I could go a year with out buying. So far this year I've bought 18 figures. It's a new project and I bought them because last year I got a really good deal on some painted figures that put me close to a complete project. My plan for this year is to buy about 100 figures that will finish off another project.
Brigade Games AWI kickstarter threw a wrench into the plan as I joined and now am looking at another 36 figures being bought.
|jefritrout||15 Apr 2019 8:47 a.m. PST|
I do have enough figures for at least 2 years of painting and not buying anything, but it would be hard.
|Micman ||15 Apr 2019 11:23 a.m. PST|
While the lead pile is good sized and I paint slowly what I have will last many years. However if there is a kickstarter or 2 that happens that I just have to have…….

Given the voltile nature of some miniatures companies, one can imagine that ayear off buying items might see a perosn unable to complete a force, if that supplier went bust in the ensuign 12 month break; Even with eBay and *ahem* other sources, it would be anywhere from difficult to disasterous.
|Timmo uk||16 Apr 2019 12:02 p.m. PST|
I have about enough for a year of painting but it's fun buying stuff, so I continue to do so.
|goragrad||16 Apr 2019 8:00 p.m. PST|
Way more than I'll ever paint, but not necessarily all of the miniatures I need for various armies…
