Thing is, I really hate painting figures. Always have. But this, I enjoyed.
Bob Cordery has made an interesting "taking stock" post on his Wargaming Miscellany blog, going through some of the same process I've been going through.. looking at his collections, rationalising them and figuring out how to get the most out of them. It's a process I highly recommend to any miniatures gamer, especially those with hidden "lead mountains" of unpainted and unused figures squirrelled away.
