Two gaming truths this post....
1. Individual figures or squads in a collection can take on personality traits of their own which adds to the Gamer's fun. These range from the heroic (such as regular "Last Man Standing" honours) to the downright incompetent (armed to the teeth with all the dud ammo and every weapon with wonky sights in the armoury). Regardless of which, all are cherished*.
* Or at least raise a wry smile
2. There's always someone to suggest that a Gamer should "clear some space". Usually because the Gamer's collection has outgrown the alloted storage area.
