Counterfett was asking about the D&D prepaints I have, so here's some pics for him, and others if you're interested. First is a group shot of most of the ones I have, showing a variety of sizes and plastic effects like the cool partly transparent elementals. Front and center is Khonan, one of my Scythiak figs (basically a GW Catachan with some extra bits) for scale. (As an aside, seeing him among fantasy figs gives me an idea...I need to get one of the Night Lords batwing helmets and make a Scythiak version of Warduke.)
As you can see, I have a number of these guys. Not shown are a few more, and the fact that I have multiples of some. I also have TONS of HeroClix figs that we use for our superhero role playing games. Given the all-inclusive nature of many supers games, some of these sometimes find their way in too.
These technically come as part of collectible packs, where you buy them sight unseen and don't know what you've got until you open it. I have never bought a single one that way. I get them all second-hand, sometimes through ebay lots but usually through singles-sellers like Popular Collections and Troll and Toad. The rarity scales, especially in HeroClix where most figures have three power levels, often works in my favor. Sometimes there's a cool figure that gets priced out of reach due to being "unique" or a rare model, but most of the time the stuff I want can be gotten cheaply - like ten cents to a dollar cheaply. I think I may have paid three bucks for the huge fire elemental, but most and especially most of the Clix figs came in much lower. Regardless of which way you get them, keep shipping costs in mind - better fewer big lots than weekly small orders!
Here's some closer pics of some of the D&D ones:

|Catapult, animated statue or stone golem, stone giant|
|Some evil cleric, efreet, gibbering mouther or something|
