How do I avoid them?

It seems like just when I get settled into a project, something else comes along.

Part of the problem is that I am more of a collector than I am a builder, and more of a builder than I am a painter.

That said--I can't stand to let other people build or paint my stuff. It needs to be 100% me.

The result, of course, is a vast swathe of boxed, unbuilt, unpainted figs.

Another part of the problem is the lack of a regular gaming group. I have a few guys to game with; we mostly do some RPG stuff. The problem is that they are not really serious miniatures players, so it's an effort to get them to build and paint, let alone have them inspire me. In the glory days of my gaming, I would play at least a couple of times per month, and, as some of you will know, this creates its own impetus to build (and paint).

Lastly, there is the limits of time. This is a bit of a cop-out; I'm just not good at making the time. Other guys work away here and there, but I like to be set up and in the groove.

I need to do better--the figs inspire me (all those RT marines are piling up), but I need the human element too....
