I have thought about this and it gives me a pain in my wallet. It's much healthier to think about, say, average monthly expenditure. If that's still uncomfortably high, consider your weekly expenditure. If that still seems like a lot, just be thankful that you're here, on Portent, so you're not actually spending money at this very moment, right?

I gave up buying new Warhammer for this very reason.

01-06-2005, 13:11
I have spent about 900 punds in my gaming lifespan,
But then i am planning to spend nearly 300 on a new army.

01-06-2005, 13:59
Well over $5,000 AU for me, by the time you factor in all the attendant hobby stuff.

01-06-2005, 14:09
This year? Or?

01-06-2005, 14:14
No, probably over about eight years.

I am not at liberty to say ;)

Over two grand, but why does this thread exist?


01-06-2005, 14:21
Becasue im being nosey and want to know how much people have spent so that i feel better/worse about the amount i have spent.

01-06-2005, 14:26
Last month I spent over 100 and that was not exceptional. I usually spend about 50 a month. Well, thats what I admit to The Wife.

01-06-2005, 14:58
i've been in this hobby for about 12 years now, so i'd say a figure in excess of 8,000 wouldn't be far wrong.

01-06-2005, 15:42
So you want an exact value here....

Well I've been in the hobby for 6-7 years

Maybe I've spent, or had spent on me (when I was a minor, no a young person, not someone who works in the mines) about 4000

Dissapointed in myself, considering I've only spent 200 in the past year (since last may)


01-06-2005, 15:59
too much money by half.. but still probably only about 450 in th 3-4 years i have played.. i tend to get around half my stuff bought for me as presents at xmas ect

01-06-2005, 16:32
I really don't know, and I don't want to think about it much, either.

01-06-2005, 17:09
Please don't make me start adding it up... I'll cry...

In addition to my armies I have a nasty habit of starting up with new stuff that never gets followed through. Thanks to that I have about 500 points of Nurgle, a Word Bearers Rhino, a few Ultramarines, some 800 points of Vampire Counts etc etc...

01-06-2005, 17:16
Been into hobby for around 17 years so I daren't think really. THANKS for bringing it up!!

Way to much over the last ten years roughly.

Well in my five years in the hobby I would say I have spent around about 1500 pounds.

Sucks thinking how much I have spent.

01-06-2005, 19:00
I refuse to answer this question on the grounds that if my wife ever finds out I'm in serious danger of loosing my health.

Carry on, nothing to see here :skull:

01-06-2005, 19:25
I'd say a figure around 9000 wasnt too far from the mark, thats not including the cost of doing up my own games room as well tho :eek:

02-06-2005, 00:35
No idea.

I've bought, sold and thrown away more minis than most people ever see.

02-06-2005, 00:45
Same here. No idea. A lot, at least I know that.

02-06-2005, 02:20
The number doesn't fit into the screen :p
I'd have voted both B and E, but as its not multiple choice...

02-06-2005, 03:25
I'm gussing between between 500 and 1000. Thats just a rough guess tho, im too scared to add it all up!

02-06-2005, 07:24
...don't ask.

Just don't ask.

Because I really have no idea.

But I have the feeling that the amount I have spent on wargaming would pay off a significant amount of my current student loan.

But at least it's not as much as some people I know. Thankfully.

Lots. I don't even want to work it out. :cries:

02-06-2005, 12:06
all in aus dolars. well i have over one hundred white dwarfs, so thts about a grand. then ive about 90% of the black library books thats another $1200. then i have 6 armies all at least $600 each so another 3600. so id say all up i have about AUS$6000 of gw stuff.

02-06-2005, 12:24
Been in for 10 years --> lead (not this white metal ******** ;)) would be the killer determinant.

At the least the metal dwarven army and metal catachan army (80+ metal) would themselves put me into the tausends...


btw this half feels like an AA meeting :/

been in the hobby for... oh seven or eight years?
and i dont want to even imagine how much ive spent given the number of fair sized armies i have..

02-06-2005, 13:08
Do background books (i.e. not codices/armybooks) count? If not, it's probably slightly over 500. I have a pretty large amount of models (for someone who's been in it for about 4 years), but most of it's been bought at GW sales/grand openings.

02-06-2005, 13:36
For being in the hobby around about 7 years, having collected every 40K army other than Guard, Necrons and Squats plus 5 WFB armies and 2 planned i would say i have spent far too much on the hobby.

02-06-2005, 14:00
I have spend almost 500, but not quite... I haven't bought that much and to be honest I haven't even painted in 4 months, but when the WE come out I'll start again.


02-06-2005, 14:04
I've been at this "hobby" of collecting mini's for about four years now.

Including Codicies, WD's, BL novels, paints and somesuch I'd like to think I'm still below the GBP 1000 mark... Probably more though.

I've been involved in the GW gaming hobby for about 14 years now. If I tried to figure out how much money I've spent on it, it would probably depress me. I'm pretty sure it's been at least $3,000, probably quite a bit more.

Sigh. I guess I'm a GW 'junkie'. ;) :D
