Don't get me wrong, I love minis games but with the advent of me getting involved with kickstarter, I think I may have gone overboard. I've got all of these minis coming in the next 8 months or so.

Camp Grizzly (18 minis)
Cthulhu Wars (VDM, all inclusive edition) (200+ minis?)
Shadows of Brimstone (Minecart plus extra Outlaw set) (300+ minis?)
Secrets of the lost Tomb (50+ minis)
Mega Man (50+ minis)
Zombies!!! Defcon 13 (100 minis)
RAFM Cthulhu minis 7th ed. (50+ minis)
Arcadia Quest (100+ minis?)
Fireteam zero plus extra minis set (200+ minis)
Forgotten King (100+ minis)
MERCS Recon (100+ minis)
Sentinel Tactics (~40 minis)
Dogs of War (100+ minis)
Zombicide Season 3 (200+ minis)

Ye gads a conservative estimate for the next eight months nets me over 1500 minis. And that doesn't count the 20 boxes or so of Bolt Action armies that I have yet to put together.

Are there minis-anonymous meetings anywhere?

It's only a problem if you run out of money.

Or add the obsession of painting every single one. And there will be new Kickstarters ...

Well, at least all your games will come to you over a staggered period of time... some on time, most of them late, and maybe one or two won't even come out at all. It's Kickstarter, afterall.

The first thing they might tell you at a meeting is to put a browser block on Paypal and Amazon. (Glass houses: I've been spying expansions on eBay today for games I haven't even played yet!)

Dang Don. I thought I was going overboard on minis, but you've got me beat by a long shot.

For games with minis, I've still got on the way:
The rest of Myth
Robotech Tactics
Cthulhu Wars
Shadows of Brimstone
Reaper Minis II
Zombie 15
Arcadia Quest
Galaxy Defenders Expansions
SDE: Forgotten King

I have no clue when I'm going to paint all this stuff! Heck, I don't when I'm going to paint the minis I've already got sitting around.

You forgot about space. You'll also have to have the room to store it all.
If they fit in the boxes, why not keep them there?

Maybe we can have some painting parties in the future.

I'd rather get some of the games played, painted or not.

That had come and gone before I discovered Kickstarter - Otherwise you could probably add Zombiecide 1 & 2, myth and Kingdom Death. I just can't stop.

I think about guys like you whenever people complain about how expensive Warhammer: The Mass Combat Fantasy Roleplaying Game (1st Edition) is. I'm guessing all those games cost you as much as I've spent on Warhammer in the past 20 years

Regardless, I wish I could come to your house and play!

You don't think the people grabbing every mini game that comes up like this don't also have piles of Warhammer stuff sitting around?

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

It could be worse. They could all be empty bottles of Scotch.

If you are concerned about the number of miniatures, it is much cheaper to buy plastic army men. You could have thousands for a pittance!

I don't know, those seem like they'd be easy to paint

It's gonna cost you a helluvalotta bottles from army-paint or citadel to get your army of bottles painted.
The money you win on the bottles will be lost to the paint!

While I love minis I'm horrible at painting - so I hope at least you like that aspect of the hobby.
