99% of my gaming is solo, so I always collect both sides in any conflict I intend to game – I am just wondering how many other gamers do the same? Always? Sometimes? Never?

Always. My gaming interests are practically never in line with the prevailing taste consensus at the club, so I have to rely on having a full set of both sides at all times.02/09/2015 at 19:37 #30371MikeKeymaster02/09/2015 at 19:48 #30372A Lot of GaulParticipant
Always. Like you, Paul, my miniatures wargaming is almost exclusively solitaire.

Pretty much always with ancients to ultra-moderns. And also often more than just two sides.

Yeap always. I hate rebasing when we change rules.
Winning is not important but losing i just can't handle..

Occasionally, never for anything in 28mm or above platoon sized forces for 20mm, but I don’t game solitaire except to learn a system before showing others.02/09/2015 at 20:40 #30379DMParticipant
Me too.02/09/2015 at 21:38 #30385willzParticipant
I have several sides for WW2, Medieval, for my 18th century I have the French which I use for both sides in my imagination armies.02/09/2015 at 22:28 #30386kyoteblueParticipant
About 20 years ago I started collecting both sides, it makes life easier.02/09/2015 at 23:43 #30388Lagartija MikeSpectator
I’m pretty much a solitaire player so, yes. I’m obliged (or have an excuse) to build a fat number of armies. So far exclusively in 28mm but I’m considering some Hellenistic stuff in 15mm from Xyston.03/09/2015 at 00:41 #30389irishserbParticipant
Though I’ve only started solo gaming in recent years, I’ve almost always built both sides.03/09/2015 at 00:41 #30390kyoteblueParticipant
15mm works for me as I have room to store it and all my terrain works with almost all my armies.03/09/2015 at 04:05 #30392Piyan GlupakParticipant
Most of my wargaming is solo now, so both sides it is for me. Even when I lived in a town with a wargames club, I still found it a good idea to do opposing sides.03/09/2015 at 04:26 #30393McLaddieParticipant
Because of where I live, I do solo gaming, but not exclusively–say 70-30% It all depends on the availability of friends and if they want to play what I want to. I still do opposing sides in all cases.03/09/2015 at 07:47 #30394Alvin MolethrottlerParticipant
I don’t do any solo gaming but like to host games, I am just as happy running a game as I am participating as a player. So these days I always do both sides/multiple factions.03/09/2015 at 09:00 #30399Shaun TraversParticipant
Both sides. Only once have I ever collected one side and that was in my very early gaming days with a 6mm Modern British force in 1980. Languished without being gamed with for 35 years – until 2 weeks ago! – due to me not owning miniature opponents. I play mostly solo these days, but back in the day when I was not, I usually supplied both sides.03/09/2015 at 20:34 #30449OldNickParticipant
Always buy/ paint both sides for any period I do.

I have always collected both sides. It makes the painting less boring and you can always draw a line down the middle so that no one nicks all the old Guard.
