40K or 401(k) ?

Recently, I've been thinking that I'll give up 40K, and sell all my miniatures.  I rarely have the opportunity to play, and most of my Orks and Space Marines armies are unpainted.  With 6th Edition almost here, there will be new rules and higher priced models that I will want to buy, which will probably only join the other unused toys on my shelves.  Maybe it's better to just jettison this hobby, and relieve myself of the incessant but unrealized desire to be 40K involved.
Of course, I really enjoy nearly every aspect of the hobby.  I let it balloon on me, so maybe I just scale back, sell off my Orks...maybe become one of those guys that just paints to sell, let painting be my hobby.  That's what I decided.
