In the past, I was guilty of hording and purging construction material based on perhaps it could be used for miniatures.
Currently, there is a massive pile of plywood in my hallway. Part of me wants to walk it out to the trash another wants me to hide it from the wife and use it to build huge scale models. Is this just me?
A friend of mine has thousands of unpainted miniatures, several bins of unpainted and unassembled Hirst Arts castings, and piles of styrofoam, plywood and Masonite. He does build stuff, but the % of unfinished is huge. I do it, too, just not quite as much.
The sad thing is forgetting about things you finished years ago and not using them in a game when you could have!

I think when handling a piece of junk I think in scale mode.
Miniatures versus toys its like miniatures were always an open door, although there was some degree of "collect" when Gygax was around in D&D, if you built a miniature diorama it was always cool but if you did something for toys it was looked up and down as bizarre. In 1980, I had made a wampa from scratch then the next year my brother bought the official wampa and it was like mine was a fucking joke even though it was pretty cool. If it had been a D&D miniature I probably still would have the damn thing.
