Which ones are you buying and what games are you using them for, if not just to collect and paint cuz they're kewl????
Mine so far:
50092 Lab Mutant. I plan on using him for a fantasy campaign as what amounts to a Half-Ogre Monk in the Savage Worlds game. I know, Chronoscope is "Everything but Fantasy."
50037 Harvey, Psycho-Killer. I can't decide if I'm just going to use him for Spinespur, or a Zombie hunting game. His chainsaw reads "Zombinator" on it!!!
50013 Willy Brassbender. I don't play Warmachine, but he would fit into any Steampunk world, the Malifaux game from Wyrd, or many Savage Worlds games.
50061 Professor Froschmeister. Same as Willy, but I could even see him in the Warhammer setting!!!!
NOVA and Blackstar: I'm using them for Warzone proxies.
What you got going on??

Anything I paint that turns out better than tabletop is purely by accident!

I just assembled Harvey, the Psycho Killer last night, sans chainsaw, and actually think I can use him as a another version of Heresy's torturer model. 'Can't wait to have the PC's experience some Medieval...ness?
Must post some desires in the Chronoscope models we want to see thread, especially after assembling Harvey.

Unfortunately, for the most part I find the Chronoscope figures awkward and not as well-sculpted as the fantasy half of the Reaper line and I have passed on many of them because better figures are available elsewhere.

I loaded up on the Deep Sea Diver to make dioramas because he fit our Scout Camp Theme. 125+ prepped for scouts to team up with the Aquatic Familiars and treasure chests.

I don't know if I entirely agree on this. Some of the range just doesn't appeal to me, as I'm not playing Western games, and even the Post Apoc game I'm playing is verging on fantasy.
I think if you look at the lil' Froschmeister sculpt and Willie Brassbender, and see how they look compared to the fantasy range, you'll see the sculpting is on par. I think maybe the subject matter might throw some folks off.
For me, it's all about the game. If the NOVA models work on the Warzone board and look decent, I'll run with them. Hell, the Warzone range is over a decade behind now, so a lot has improved in that time.
I've looked around the house today, as I'm cleaning like a madman, and see that the barcode proofs of purchase I had all over are now increasingly Chronoscope. I wonder if other Reaper fans are going this direction. Time for a new thread, maybe?

Too bad I haven't gotten around to painting them

To that end, Dr. Ervin Friedman is in the mail, on his way to conversion into a zombie puppet doctor, and two of the Lab Mutant's cousins (Clay Golems) have had their heads lopped off and will have big, sucking, lamprey-like heads attached and belly fat added. Max Decker is on deck to die a horrible death as an NPC while the investigators try to figure out what's going on in the town (this time). Our first Silent Hill campaign ran from late 2006 through spring 2008 and used a homebrewed hybrid of the d20 Cthulhu and d20 Modern rules. The new campaign will be the same.
Doc Holiday, Rio Wilson, and Miss Scarlett have all been corralled for a miniatures/card game I am creating for my folks for the Holidays, and Jeb Lawson and Ellen Stone will likely get roped in for that, too (we need more 'injuns than just the Chief, guys - lots of them, please).
Sascha, Boris, and Action Jackson I bought because I like them. Sometimes I think of outlandish scenarios to drop them into, but right now I don't have the time to flesh any of those out. The Children I bought for utilitarian reasons. It's just good to have certain specialized minis around, in case you need them for something.
Most of the minis I buy, I buy with multiple ideas in mind, so a lot of the guys above already are planned for more use. I also do a lot of conversion work, so I have multiples of some of these, as well. For instance, I bought two Rosies so I could have one with wrench and one with gun, and also so I could use the second wrench for a character who coincidentally likes to hit things with a big wrench.

I have Jake Ryan, Janus Cybertech Hero, and Doc Holiday proxied as my Black 13th unit for Warmachine... I loved the rules for that unit but really didn' care for the models, and Cygnar is more of a side thing for me anyways
I agree the price is better, but the sculpts? I don't think you can knock PP for quality. I love most everything they put out, including Black 13.
Cygnar is a side thing for me, too, and I haven't proxied anything in Warmachine yet as I am really still a newb, but I did put a cowboy hat on Caine from the Reaper hats pack!
Now he looks even more like Roland Deschain.

I'm not so sure I'd want to get hit by a missile with a "dog brain" AI.
