Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

The Pledge

As you may or may not recall, I took the Pledge at the beginning of this year.I would paint more than I bought.

Well, the total currently stands at:

Bought: 217
Painted: 133

So I'm not doing too bad, actually.

The big problem I've got coming up is that I backed the Blood Rage Kickstarter for the boardgame; the problem is that due to the massive funding it got the stretch goals mean that it's going to come with night on 100 figures. Do I count them towards the Pledge? I've counted the Bloodbowl figures I got second hand but that's a bit different.

Proof that I bought the boardgame for the sake of the game comes from the photographs I took the other week. When we reorganised the book cases, I had to accept that I have a board game problem:

There needs to be some variation on Alcoholics Anonymous for people like us.


  1. I suppose it al depends when you first backed the kick-starter. I know that I won't be counting any of the pirates as that was backed in December - thems the rules and I'm sticking to them!

    1. Oh, a neat dodge. Alas I backed this this year; around Easter if I recall.

  2. I don't understand. What kind of problem do you have with board games?

    1. I'm running out of space! My wife says I have a problem and mutters darkly about this thing called money which I believe are those Game Tokens that we hand in to get games and miniatures.
