Well, I actally seem to be able to find a use for all the Chronoscope figures I buy. For example, the western figures work great for the cowboy skirmish games I play (Legends of the Old West). Of course the superheroes fit right in with the superhero RPGs I like to run (Mutants & Masterminds), and even some of the others can be fit into that genre (I'm even working up a storyline to feature Sasche as a time traveling rouge). I'll be picking up the British and Zulu packs just becuase I loved the move Zulu, but I suppose I could probably use them in a colonial skirmish game like The Sword & the Flame, too.
Which ones are you buying and what games are you using them for, if not just to collect and paint cuz they're kewl????
If you game long enough, and have as wide ranging interests as I do, you eventually end up with a box of games that such that you have at least one that will work for any figure you find!
