Well after much deliberation and contemplation I have come to the conclusion I cannot figure out a use for my centaurs in any of my design plans, so i'm wondering should I just put them up and store them or just toss them in my BL store?

How 'bout a battle between Centaurs and hoplites, or something? Seems a shame to have amassed such a nice army just to sell it. If you don't use 'em now, why not put them up until your imagination kicks in? :)

I agree!
Perhaps battling a few might inspire something larger ...
or storing them for when you gain inspiration.
I'd keep out a trio on a shelf near your work bench and let them wonder through your imagination as you do other things.
There is always ideas from the Chronicles of Narnia too ;)

I almost suggested Narnia. :D

I think MC's idea is good: set 'em out in front of you and let 'em soak into your imagination. Perhaps a Greek Temple? How 'bout a classical Greek adventure scene? Homer? (the writer, not Mr. Simpson :9 ) Rome?

Thing of it is, I've tried to figure out how to use them in one of my large projects, but trying to quantify their existance was proving to be more of a hurdle then I could overcome, and I've even thought of using them as an alien species in another project but figured it wouldn't work right, and they have been sitting on my shelf where I see them everyday with nothing coming to me.

Sell half of them, something'll come to you when you're selling them. It'll probablly be use for all of them.

might just toss them in storage for now with other LEGO i've not found a use for as of yet (can't keep everything in my LEGO room since not enough room, http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=446374 ) essentially they get tubbed up and put in one of my spare bedrooms.

I've ran into the same issue with the ones I have. I bought 2 of each color and wanted to do each color a different "clan" but it kind of fizzled out and now their in a tub in the closet for now.
