It started with Brent showing off his rather large hobby collection, and Deth not only prepared a rebuttal that shows off his own massing of toy soldiers but called out the community to do the same. So far, Loq's also responded to the challenge, but I call shenanigans 'cause she owns a game store.
So I'm taking this opportunity to show off my own collection, but asking you to show yours off too - when you do, please post a link in the comments here.
My hobby goes back... wayyy back. Back when Games Workshop's love for Space Marines was so strong the game was ACTUALLY CALLED "Space Marine". (True story - that's before Titan Legions, Epic and Epic 40,000)
I actually have more than this... some Eldar titans used as Wraithlords, Space Marine titans for TheWife's chaos stuff, and more at the bottom of some of the lower pictures bitz boxes
Around the same time, we also picked up Advanced Heroquest minis to paint, which led to some boardgame action in Warhammer Quest and the original Space Hulk. There was also a brief period of Gorka Morka. My wonderful wife also added to that in recent years with the new limited edition Space Hulk.
Finally I joined the "big leagues" and committed to Warhammer 40k - Eldar style. I've even amassed a "small" amount of Space Marines that at some point will turn into Dark Angels. However the Dark Angels will have to wait, as I'm now collecting Hordebloods.
From all of this, my bitz collection has grown quite large....
As has what I've assembled for building terrain. (aka "big bitz")
There are some misc. figures in my collection too, like these Star Wars Bounty Hunters.
However the bulk of my collection seems to be everything for modding, painting, basing, etc...
Since Dethtron had to "pad" to compare to Brent's impressive size, and I'm a geek of many colours, here's a smattering of the other things that keeps me busy.
TheWife would also point out there is misc. styrofoam and other larger bitz hidden behind the odd piece of furniture...
