"An Embarrassment of Riches"!? Vote and help decide!

Great title from a history book about the Dutch during the reformation.  Apparently, they made a lot of money. 

In my case, I didn't _make_ a lot of money, as got a bit lucky with deciding to sell of all my Battlefleet Gothic fleets and then discovering that the entire line was dropped by GW in their infinite wisdom [sometimes I LOVE those guys!] so a quick tour of eBay auctions revealed high prices and aggressive bidding.  With great hopes, I spent several hours organizing and making good auctions with pics.  There were 16 Eldar ships, 11 Ork, an Imperial Fleet of 9 + 10 escorts, two chaos fleets of 7 and 5 plus escorts, a system defense fleet and a bunch of traders, and a intro box set mostly untouched with some extra bits.  The total over several auctions was over $900!  A few guys from France bought most of it, oddly.

So what shall I do?  It's way more than I ever thought I'd make in the near future on gaming auctions.  Based upon my rules, it's certainly available for gaming purposes, but I still have far more projects than I can do and need to sell off even more.  Decisions, decisions...

Well, you can help decide!  There's a POLL AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE so feel free to express your opinion and as we say in Philly - "Vote early, vote often!"

  1. Okay, sir. Gaming stuff is important . . . but so is your domestic homelife.
    So why not think of a two thirds / one third split?

    $600 for 40mm ECW and $300 that you and your lady can decide where to spend. That way you get money for your hobby but also domestic tranquility too.
