Over the years, I have gravitated toward boardgames with miniatures. I like the eye appeal of the miniatures and their use in table top games. Can't deny it.

The problem is that there are too many to keep up with anymore.

A lot of people would only have them if they get them painted up nicely. I can't even begin to fathom how I could do that.

Slowly (thanks a lot to Kickstarter) I have been accumulating them and have not even been able to play them due to time constraints and/or lack of opponents.

Here's a list of what I have accumulated, mostly as a shame list. I'm not looking to get rid of any (please don't ask, it would be like letting go of one of your kids) but neither am I going to add more.

My only saving grace is that I love to read the rulebooks. I read them like others read novels. I'm currently working my way through all of the Shadows of Brimstone rules (nearly 300 pages!). So they aren't a complete waste.

I'd be interested in opinions of which of these should be pursued first above the others. Also, to anybody local - any interest in starting a campaign?

Went all in on this one with an additional copy of the base game. I like the scope of this game along with the gameplay. It's in a box (several) in the garage.

I went all in on all three Kickstarters. Not sorry about this one at all because the minis can be used in the Call of Cthulhu role playing game. The game is good too!

Loved the movie and this is as close as I've seen to an intelligent boardgame of the franchise (I used to love the RPG!). Still unplayed.

Every mini for approximately the first 11 years. Gave up cold turkey as the repeats proliferated. Teen Titans was my last complete set.
