Hexxenhammer Posted March 2, 2007 Share Posted March 2, 2007 Geez, this thread grew. Here's how Hex will use these (as long as the variety is eventually there). I'm DMing and Drow happen to be the main baddies. But, I don't have any Drow minis. In one of the encounters I'll need 10 drow. If I buy these in pewter, they'll be like $35. And they'll take hours and hours to paint. If my game is coming up on Friday, I'm not going to do this. Either I switch the baddies to something I've got, or spend a whole combat explaining that the orcs are drow and the bugbears are troglodytes. What I'm doing now is scour ebay for commons of minis I might need in large numbers for D&D. This is slow and frustrating. But if I can snatch up a couple of pre-painted plastic packs of drow for a reasonable price, say $10-$15, then I will. Wargaming (and Warlord) for me are very different. I'm not going to use these plastics for it. I like painting up armies to a theme. But that's just me. I couldn't care less what someone else does. Lastly weight and fear might attract me to plastic. A fully loaded Army Transport case is heavy. And I hate leaving my minis in my car for any length of time. I shudder when I think of the $ value of what I cart around just to play D&D. If someone rips me off, I'd rather lose plastic than pewter I spent HOURS painting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
