Prepainted miniatures for Cyberpunk/Modern: A great, versatile collection with budget

Corporate people & men in suits

Anyone can get a great miniature collections very cheaply, thanks to collectible miniatures vith very rare miniatures and stores selling singles. For as low as $25, you can get a basic set of 50 miniatures that has a lot of those extras your player characters are going to meet a lot, plus a lot of different characters for pc's or villains. I've chosen to use Troll & Toad as I've made a lot of purchases with them I'm happy with, and they have a great collection (including Mage Knight) and good photos of everything.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Part 8 - commoners and monks

Villagers at the market

Commoners (or non-combatants) are miniatures that have a lot of use in rpg's. A combat becomes a lot more interesting when the villains are among civilians, the heroes need to organize defense of a village full of peasants or the heroes will anger the townsfolk when they are surrounded by hundreds of them.

Following photos will give you some commoners and information about them can be found below; You'll find also monks from the page.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Part 7 - Cavalry, mounted miniatures

Cavalry miniatures for roleplaying use

Chases on horsebacks, cavalry charges and extremely cool miniatures. Mounted miniatures are made for Sword & Sorcery, much more than for Dungeons & Dragons! Here I'll present you various mounted/cavalry miniatures you can use for your S&S games. While many of them are DDM, there are also some excellent Mage Knights among them and a view to the Lord of the Rings miniatures.

I LOVE miniatures!

Minis for fantasy

I'm hooked, I can confess that. Our house has required a lot of money and I've been on budget, and while I do have considerable collection of miniatures, I was very happy to receive my first miniature packet for half a year from my favourite miniatures store - if you've been reading my recent posts, you know which!

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Part 6 - War elephants, wagons and chariots

War elephant and chariots

Traditionally, most fantasy miniatures represent warriors, wizards and other combatant or adventurous types, and even then only people. This leaves many of us gamemasters want more miniatures, both for scenes taking place in the middle of crowds or where larger, more exotic weapons are used in combat. There are some such items various manufacturers are producing, but mostly they are metal miniatures, and many prepainted miniature collectors want to stay away from those metal ones.

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.
