Spent some quality time last night working on straightening up and cleaning out my gaming boxes. Not a lot of room back there, so I need to reduce, big time. Deciding what to keep, what to donate to my local posse, and most importantly, what to sell on eBay. This is going to be my new hobby, it seems. Just last night, and I already have two armloads of stuff to dump. Not going to be a quick process, by any stretch of the imagination, but hey, that's gonna be at least some cash to, uh, then spend on other gaming stuff. Heh.

I also have this terrible idea that I could paint a couple of these minis and sell them online. I'm by no means a good painter, mind you, but I'm consistently surprised by the prices people get online for even mediocre paint jobs, and I'm at least a mediocre painter. So a couple things are being set aside for that as well.

(Not that I don't have enough of my own things that need painting. If nothing else, I have a Warhammer 40k megabattle coming up in late November or early December [Imperium vs. Tyranids!] which is going to force me to get a *lot* of my Imperial Guard painted. But I do enjoy artificial deadlines, so there's that.) (Oh, and those Rezolution figs, so I can get some of that under my belt as well.) (Lather, rinse, repeat.)

Now, about that new Star Wars minis set...
