Default You Finally Kick The Old Dice-Bucket: What Happens to Your Stuff?

Having a so-called "terminal illness" often makes me think of what will happen when I die. Mostly, it leaves me wondering who would want my mountain of sprues and model kits in all stages of assembly, along with the armies I've managed to finish. I can only assume my folks would divide it between my gaming groups, but that leads me to picturing it like the rag-pickers fighting over Scrooge's possessions...

So, what do you think will happen to your models and other possesions when you pass away? Have you already made agreements with your gaming buddies on who gets what, or will you just leave it to fate? Or are you hoping GW swoops out of the blue and declares your hobby area a shrine? Or do you plan on taking it all with you when you go?

Well... I like to think I have a while left ... so by the time that comes, I'll probably have sold it all.

but should I still own it all, I want it smelted down into a Plastic/Metal Hybrid, and injected into Justin Biebers veins.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

Being in a similar circumstance to the OP this has already been discussed, so my Brothers and Nephews are dividing it up, hopefully while I'm still 'with it' enough to watch...I imagine it will be akin to watching Zombies scraping over a carcass

I suppose it would all go to my brother.

well i don't like to think of my death as that isnt my personality.
but if it was it would go to someone that really wants it, which would most likely be mr brother.

I Want to be buried with it as an honour guard.
I years to come when i am dug up me and my models will be put in a museum and people will ask "who whas this guy and why was he important enough to be buried with an army guarding him?"

Please listen to my PODCAST
