Hobby wallet share for 2013.

A fun idea borrowed from The Emperors Blog. Who earned your hobby dollars in 2013?

Hobby Spend

The chart represents about $950 in spending for 2013.  Most of these purchases are actually second hand, coming either from Ebay or TMP.

Reaper takes the lead with the Bones II Kickstarter and a rather large paint purchase.

Gripping Beast, Foundry, FireForge, Perry, BTD, Musketeer and Old Glory all contributed components for my Crusader project.

Wire spears from Northstar are indispensable, but often hard to find in the US.  I pick up several hundred to insure myself a life time supply.

Shogun & GF9 for trays and bases.

Other Retail and Secret Weapon (love the Dark Sepia wash) were mostly paints & brushes from local art/craft stores.

    Wish I kept better track but surely Warlord Games was my biggest contributor this year with certainly $400 in Bolt Action armies, then various Kickstarters with Reaper , Westwind and some small start ups come to another $500, throw on probably half that again in miscellaneous figs. rules, and hirst molds, I’m certainly in the $1200- $1500 range…Best part, amount spent on new or retail Games Workshop product in 2013- $0.00. (I’m not counting vintage or OOP stuff)

    I’ve kept a spreadsheet of all my hobby income/expenses for six years now. It really puts the expense of the hobby in perspective when you can see the grand total add up. With only needing a few minutes to open up a Google doc, every hobbyist should keep track of their spend.
