A list every prepainted miniatures fan should be aware of

While the most stuff I'm posting here is created by myself, once in a while I find something I must share. Today, I stumbled upon a new list at boardgamegeek, one collecting together various products containing prepainted miniatures. While I knew most of them, there were many new ones on the list too. From Star Wars Starship battles and Mage Knight to Angels 20 and Shadows over Camelot: A Company of Knights, you'll find here info and pictures of prepainted miniatures of many different genres and flavor.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Arcane Legions, a tempting alternative

A sample selection of Arcane Legions miniatures

I told you briefly about Arcane Legions miniatures in my first post about miniatures for Sword & Sorcery. Now I'll give you a bit more insight of these minis if you consider using them in a Sword & Sorcery game - or any ancient era/fantasy roleplaying game. I'll have to say again that I love these minis and would really like to use them for a roleplaying game, and with some additions they would work well with Beasts & Barbarians.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Intro

Clix for Sword & Sorcery

I've collected minis from various product lines for Sword & Sorcery roleplaying campaign for some time now. Recent discussion at Savage Worlds forums about what minis should be used for Beasts & Barbarians game gave me an idea  perhaps I should document my collections and help others to find miniatures for their Sword & Sorcery games.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Part 2 - DDM Picks & about buying singles

D&D minis for Sword & Sorcery: Priests & cultists

This is the second post in series showing miniatures suitable for a Sword & Sorcery roleplaying game. This time, you'll see some great picks from D&D miniatures for a Sword & Sorcery game.

Note that fixed minis may have different name somewhere - they often have one name for miniature and a different one for the miniature game (Roving swordmage might be called Male human swordmage) 

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Part 5 - More DDM, plus a few Heroscape

Barbarinas from Dungeons & Dragons miniatures & Heroscape

Another post in the series helping you to find prepainted miniatures for your Sword & Sorcery rpg - this time mostly D&D miniatures, but also some heroscape. I've decided to use Troll and Toad as the site to link the miniatures to as they have a good selection of product lines for sale and get refills from time to time. I'm using mostly cheap miniatures, although there are some more expensive ones, which I'll try to mention.
