I used to buy roleplaying miniatures (Grenadier, etcetera) as a teenager. I still have a few hundred of the things sitting around in boxes - orcs and kobolds, dwarves and elves, barbarians and warriors of various types, thieves and assassins, wizards and clerics, skeletons and zombies, vampires and werewolves, kings and queens, barmaids and beggars, and even some oddities like swarms of lizards, and a mounted halfling knight. I also have a few Games Workshop models (including bits and pieces of the venerable Heroquest) and some from sci-fi games (including Warhammer 40K).
The majority of them are still unpainted, because I loved collecting them and using them in games, but never had the patience or persistence to get busy with the brush. I keep meaning to brush up (snerk) on my skills, dig out a few of my old favourites and finally give 'em the paint job they deserve.
